About Us


how we got started

Established in 2006 to create custom homes, red ladder properties was born out of an unmet need by a real estate investor group to hire quality building contractors at reasonable prices.

At several rehab job sites, Cheryl Dukes, the inspiration behind red ladder, observed contractors cutting corners, over-pricing their services and generally being unconcerned with anything beyond their own immediate task.

 According to Dukes, “I’ve seen things done the wrong way and I’ve seen them done the right way. The right way is much easier for everyone, so I don’t accept alternative approaches. I like things done correctly and at a reasonable price. And because we make such a big investment and spend such a good part of our lives in our homes, I don’t believe that is a place where corners should be cut. We should be able to trust that our homes have all their necessary corners. One sure way to make that happen was to become hands on and oversee the building process.” Thus evolved red ladder properties.

Dukes holds an MBA degree from the Kellogg School of Management at Northwestern University and has also received training from John Wieland Homes and Neighborhoods, Southface Energy Institute and Ubuildit. In addition to being a residential developer, she is a licensed Realtor.
