10 Federal Mission

10 Federal was founded by Brad and Cliff Minsley during a recession in 2010. They knew it was a risk to start a company during those times, but also saw huge potential. They are from NC and could see big rewards in multi-family properties in the area. The company has now grown to own properties in 16 states.

We help third-party owners with our knowledge and the technology we have developed. We are looking for investors and there is strong potential for portfolio growth.

Application of Great Technology

We develop and create technology. Our software developers give us insight into how the software works so we can apply it effectively. One example is our Rent Maximizer technology which manages the daily rental rates of property. It takes care of unit costs and adjusts rates to reflect changes daily. 

Another example of our innovative technologies is our DaVinci Lock®, the best locking solution for self storage! The DaVinci Lock® System allows for automated and contactless lock removal. The system uses a standard combination lock with an encrypted serial code engraved on it. Using DaVinci Lock® software, serial codes can be decrypted to retrieve lock combinations. Authorized employees can provide lock combinations to tenants. Patent Awarded Proprietary Technology. Now used in approximately 1 out of every 20 facilities nationwide!
