Chicago Title National Commercial Services California, a member of the Fidelity National Financial family of companies, has opened The Chicago Title National Self-Storage Group under seasoned self-storage finance veteran Chuck Mills who will serve as Vice President of National Sales.

Mills brings nearly 40 years of extensive finance experience to the position, encompassing loan origination, financial consulting and venture capital. His foray into the self-storage sector began in 2000, and since then, he has financed more than 500 self-storage loans, totaling over US $2 billion. Notably, he served most recently as President of CEM Capital in Irvine, California, where he facilitated loan originations nationally, investment equity and facilitated joint ventures. Throughout his career, Mills has played a pivotal role in originating over US $10 billion of commercial loans across various sectors, including multifamily, retail, industrial, office and hospitality.

Ryan Huntsman, Vice President and National Sales Manager at Chicago Title NCS California, says “While Chicago Title has maintained an active presence in the self-storage sector for nearly two decades, Chuck’s comprehensive expertise and keen understanding of the complexities and nuances inherent in self-storage transactions will significantly benefit clients. We look forward to growing our national presence in the self-storage sector under Chuck’s astute leadership.”

Mills adds: “Chicago Title’s focus on the self-storage sector is a significant milestone. The dedicated national platform tailored exclusively to self-storage ensures that clients have access to an expert who understands the intricacies of the industry. Whether dealing with a single property or navigating a complex multi-state transaction, clients can rely on a single point of contact.

“I have known Ryan Huntsman for more than a decade and have worked with Ryan and his Chicago Title team on more than US $100 million in transactions across the country,” Mills notes. “I admire Ryan’s dedication to serving his clients and have seen the outstanding success of the Chicago Title National Hospitality Group, a committed national platform that serves the hotel sector. And, now with the launch of the National Self-Storage Group, I know that this is a great fit for me and the needs of the self-storage sector.”

Mills earned his Bachelor of Science degree in Real Estate and Finance from the University of Arkansas and holds a California real estate broker license. He is an active member of various industry associations, including the national Self Storage Association (SSA), California Self Storage Association (CSSA), Arizona Self-Storage Association (AZSA) and Texas Self Storage Association (TSSA).

Beyond his professional achievements, he has enjoyed sharing his passion for soccer with the youth. For more than two decades, Mills has been involved in coaching and refereeing for the American Youth Soccer Organization (AYSO) and has served as a coach for the California Futbol Academy, a Los Angeles-based club soccer organization. He also has served as an assistant coach for girls junior varsity soccer at Capistrano Valley High School in Mission Viejo, California.
