Who is Cedar Creek CapitalTM?

The premier self-storage fund for the premier investor.

What does financial freedom mean to you?

Soon after my fourth child was born, I was paralyzed from head to toe due to an unexpected autoimmune disorder known as Guillain Barre Syndrome. This left me dependent on life support for several months, rendering me unable to move, eat, or even breathe and recovery unknown. Adding to my difficulties, I was let go from my high income earning career while I was still in the hospital.

Despite the extraordinary challenges my family and I faced during this time, financial security was not one of them. All because we had invested in self-storage and built our investment portfolio years prior.

Even in my incapacitated state, self-storage continued to generate income for my family. This was true financial freedom. Ensuring that my wife could provide for our children and allow all of us to focus solely on my recovery without worry of financial ruin.

It was during this time, I promised myself that if I were to survive, I would provide this same financial freedom, stability and wealth creation opportunity to you. Bringing you on as my business partner and providing you and your family a path to passive income, equity ownership, and pass-through tax benefits sought in real estate investing.

Three years after my near-death experience Cedar Creek Capital was brought to life...
Whether you're seeking financial freedom, freedom of location, freedom of time, or all three you've come to the right place.
