About Cherokee ... In a 'Nutshell'

Cherokee is an investment company. We own and operate rental real estate, both commercial and residential, primarily in New Jersey. We also own and service portfolios of mortgage loans and other financial instruments nationally. We are a private, for-profit company.

But we're different than firms that appear similar initially, in two basic ways:

  1. We always start with "non-productive" assets. Properties, mortgages and tax liens which are "damaged", and often abandoned. We've been called a socially responsible, commercially successful salvage operation for real estate and mortgage portfolios.

  2. We define success as "helping people and places, in the course of earning a profit." Our goal is to improve the neighborhoods where we work, and help the people in and around our activities. It's not just about making money, but rather earning money as we use dilapidated real estate to effectuate community development.

Our becoming involved in distress "situations" leads to a resolution. There is usually a "controlling stakeholder" whose irresponsible actions, or inactions, created or facilitated the problems. However there are also many other stakeholders, who are innocent, and powerless to distance themselves from the distress, such as neighbors, lenders, family and business associates, etc. To learn how Cherokee rescues these innocent stakeholders, please download our information sheet entitled How Cherokee Rescues Innocent Stakeholders.
