Cherokee: Who We Are & What We Do

Cherokee is an investor. We are a private, for-profit company that strives to "do good" in the course of "doing well".

We help other investors and government agencies analyze and solve their "bad debt" and "bad real estate" problems.

We buy distressed and other "non-performing" real estate, mortgages, tax liens, and related debt. We own and operate rental real estate.

The central theme of our business is "recycling value", whether that takes the form of real estate or financial instruments.

Cherokee is a group of inter-related operations. The web site you are reading at this moment is the Internet home of Cherokee real estate companies. We redevelop, renovate and manage commercial and residential real estate investments, primarily in New Jersey.
