In every industry there will always be a dark horse that no one is paying attention to but sooner or later regret the decision. One such example is coca cola. Did you know? The first servings of Coca‑Cola were sold for 5 cents per glass. During that first year, sales averaged a modest nine servings per day in Atlanta. Today, daily servings of Coca‑Cola beverages are estimated at 1.9 billion globally.

Prior to the death of Dr. Pemberton in 1888, just two years after creating what was to become the world’s #1-selling sparkling beverage, he sold portions of his business to various parties, with the majority of the interest sold to Atlanta businessman, Asa G. Candler. Long story short, it’s important to keep an eye out for fast rising companies especially in your area of expertise or interest if you truly want to get a great bang for your buck!


Since you have taken the time to read one of our many blogs, I will assume that you are interested in real estate. In Kenya recession is nothing new, after the post-election violence of 2007 the economy went straight down the toilet. It was a hot mess! Every single industry took a hit, from the cash crop industry all the way to public transportation.

The ONLY people who managed to evade this economic onslaught were real estate moguls. All they had to do was hold out till the economy sprung back up, and then continue to transfer units to viable clients.

So based on that logic real estate is rock solid right? Wrong! Real estate only works if you team up with competent people/companies that know what they are doing. You probably know of one or two companies that ended up tarnished in the courts of public opinion based on projects that went wrong and left key investors outraged.

Some of the reasons for such outcomes is as follows:

  1. Corrupt management officials
  2. Fast expansion
  3. Banking on un-approved loans to complete a project



We’ve been in the industry long enough to see both the good and the ugly. And believe when we say, we learnt our lesson through others!

At Cheriez Properties we spend a great deal of time scrutinizing every single aspect of any project before we commit even a shilling.

And as such over the past ten years we have suffered zero financial losses.
