Strather is also the biggest club builder of the International Optimist Clubs in its 123 year’s existence (The primary purpose of the Optimist Club is to aid and encourage the development of youth, in the belief that the giving of oneself in service to others will advance the well-being of humankind, community life, and the world).

Strather Academy, an affiliate of Strather Associates was created in 2006 at Wayne County Community College by Herb Strather to teach Detroiters real estate acquisition skills. The first 1,000 students were taught free at WCCCD. The firm then moved on to Marygrove College where Mr. Strather taught for two years. Finally, Strather Academy became a stand-alone institution. However, Mr. Stratheroccasionally lectures at Harvard University Divinity School teaching “Faith and Finance” and Ross School of Business at the University of Michigan.

The academy’s philosophy is to teach by doing. Mr. Strather believes the best approach is “hands-on.” When a student becomes involved in a project, they learn through experience rather than just theory. And certainly, learning under an experienced coach is much better than attempting to learn by trial and error.

In recent years, Strather Academy students have formed three successful joint ventures Apollo I, Apollo II, and Apollo III.


To train the next generation of Detroit real estate entrepreneurs who will rebuild and re-establish Detroit as a world-class metropolis.
