Before graduating, Jason was fortunate to travel the world and liked the acacia tree while spending time in the Serengeti. Acacia trees provide shade, shelter and food for animals of the Maasai Mara. Jason interpreted this as providing protection, care and support for his clients. Jason resides in Park City, Utah with his wife and four children.

Self-Storage Investments

Austin Livingston started his real estate career in 2006 working in residential real estate. After helping numerous clients purchase and sell their residences in his inaugural year, he made a switch in 2007 to commercial real estate, specializing in self-storage acquisitions and dispositions at a major commercial real estate brokerage. In the last three years Austin has underwritten close to $175 million in self-storage, and transacted tens of millions in value.

At Acacia Strategies his goal remains the same as it always has: to help his clientele create and preserve the wealth they have spent considerable time and effort creating.
