Real estate ROI is in our family.

Father, Mike Mikkelson and son Adam Mikkelson

Liberty is a generational led investment firm rooted in Orlando, Florida with a keen focus on long-term relationships and challenging the status-quo. After moving to Orlando, founders Mike and Melissa Mikkelson, started Liberty and built their first Self Storage facility in 1988 near International Drive. Mike and Melissa proved their ability to perform, despite the challenging economic climate, and the facility leased up in just under a year.

Since 2005, son, Adam Mikkelson joined his father to build out the legacy of Liberty Investment Properties. Starting as a storage manager he effectively cycled through multiple roles throughout the organization within hospitality and self storage. In 2021, Adam purchased Liberty and now leads all the investment efforts as President and CEO. As a result of the consistent application, Liberty has now invested in over 80+ properties stretching across the US. These assets include self storage, hospitality, office, and multi-family with total capital investment nearing $900 million to date.
