Ross Stryker is a founder and CEO of Smart Asset Opportunities – which helps educate busy small business owners to take charge of their own financial freedom plan. He practiced dentistry and specialized in Orthodontics for over 35 years – 12 of those years were while serving in the US Army – reaching the rank of Lieutenant Colonel and later in private practice where he grew one of the largest single doctor practices in the country.
Ross has owned 40+ single family homes and written two books – one specifically on real estate investing. He has been part of 4 different masterminds (three of which he continues to be part of with quarterly meet ups, monthly calls, etc) attends additional conferences, seminars and meetings with elite real estate investors. He knows that unlike wall street where insider information will get you thrown in jail – in real estate investing – that is where the real opportunities can be found. It is not the asset that makes the opportunity work – it’s the people behind the asset.
Having participated in a multitude of commercial projects, including Self Storage facilities, mobile home parks, office complexes, ATM purchases, a coffee farm in Panama, apartment complexes and even a resort in Belize. Ross has invested in and in many cases helped with capital raises on projects worth 10’s of millions of dollars. His latest project is StoreEase of Fultondale. An $8.9M development with over 700 units of self storage. He is passionate about getting money out of the wall street casinos and putting it to work on main street in safe, tangible investments.
Ross believes in the power of joint ventures in assets that have proven tax advantages and high returns that will keep you ahead of inflation and interim taxation – two “thieves” that steal retirement dreams.
Ross is most passionate about helping people get educated. SAO has never been about giving people advice. It’s about giving them the tools to discover more on their own while providing information to help them make informed, educated decisions so they can take charge of their own financial futures – get their money out of the wall street casinos and get it to work on main street and be as active or passive in that arena
as they desire to be.
Ross formed Smart Asset Opportunities out of a passion and a need to serve his “tribe” as he calls them. A successful entrepreneur he’s committed to sharing the wealth, so to speak, and the numbers and testimonials don’t lie.
