Ashton Closner

Ashton Closner, the founder of Maverick Advantage, he is the son of John James Closner III Major General in US Air Force Reserve Ret Chief, and Angela Closner 6" Blonde  British horse jumping, Bi-Plane flying mother.  Ashton played collegiate Basketball for ETBU in Marshall Texas and became a USPTA Tennis professional after college, managing a Country Club and restaurant.  Before owning his IT companies, Ashton invested in single-family real estate as rentals as well as bought and flipped properties as investments.  Multifamily investing is one area he encourages for certain clients.   Ashton sold his companies in the IT sector in 2014.  While interviewing different organizations to invest with he kept coming up with the same canned responses and solutions but none of them provided the solution he was looking for, so he began to do his own research.  After 2 years of reading and trial and error, he put together a simple strategy that most anyone could follow with minimal help from an advisor or agency.  This simple approach was received with appreciation when shared with friends and family.  After contracting with a nationwide Trust service company and learning what they did very well and what they did not, Maverick Advantage Solutions was born on January 1st, 2020.  Maverick looks forward to helping anyone who aligns with our approach, but especially our front-line friends who work in Education, Law enforcement, or Medical fields.  The middle class is who have been left to figure out retirement on their own and they deserve the most help for their sacrifice.
