He is founder and developer of Assa Properties, a company founded in 2000 involved in the business of developing and investing in major residential, retail and commercial properties.

Armed with years of experience and in-depth knowledge, with every project that he does, he aims to set the bar higher and change the old-fashioned, conventional method of property development. So far he has successfully managed to identify and capitalize on development opportunities, using his acquired skills and knowing of the market. After years of hard work and dedication, finally, in 2000, Solly Assa got the chance to realize one of his biggest dreams and start his own company. Since then, Assa Properties has acquired over 3 million square feet of assets spread across the United States and Mexico.
