Our Roots: The Print-Related Industry

Our roots date back to 1982 in Silicon Valley. The IBM PC had just been introduced and we began supplying the required manuals, software, packaging, assembly,fulfillment and distribution.

From 1982 to 1998, we continued to focus on providing software products for the rapidly growing high-tech industry. As printed manuals became PDF files and software discs became downloads, we were there leading the industry with our innovative e-commerce, just-in-time, and on-demand production technologies.

We also lead the industry when the “Cloud” became the rage. Digital downloads were no longer enough. Cloud computing meant software companies could sell software as a service (SaaS) and streaming technologies allowed digital content providers to rent movies, music, games, etc.

Today: Real Estate and Self-Storage

After 40+ years in the print industry, I have decided to focus on real estate and self-storage. The Gung-Ho brand will be used for Gung-Ho Real Estate and Gung-Ho Self-Storage.

For Our Gung-Ho Real Estate Clients

In 1973, at age 16, I bought my first rental property by purchasing a home for $1,500 down and assuming the loan. I sold that home when I was 21, realized a $30,000 net profit (2,000% return), and purchased an apartment building.

Over the years, I continued buying apartments in California and Nevada.

In 2021, I sold all my California properties and reinvested in Downtown Reno commercial buildings. I also started Gung-Ho Real Estate to oversee the buying, selling, leasing, property management, development, and construction of my commercial and multi-family residential properties.

For Our Gung-Ho Self-Storage Customers

When I purchased my downtown Reno condo, I discovered the closest public self-storage facilities are at least a mile outside the Downtown Reno area. So, in 2022, I created Gung-Ho Storage to build self-storage units that are within walking distance for people living, working, and moving in to the rapidly growing Downtown Reno area.

Gung-Ho Storage is the only public self-storage in the Downtown Reno area. All the storage facilities are climate-controlled, and feature state-of-the-art construction with video surveillance. and secure 24/7 access.

The first self-storage location is MILL @ PARK (560 Mill St) and more Downtown Reno self-storage locations are opening soon.
