Mr. Chad McWhinney’s journey to success demonstrates his leadership and entrepreneurial skills. He started by helping do the harvest of berries from the family farm (McWhinney berries). Together with his brother, Chad identified his High school classmates as the market for their berries. This happened in the year 1986. After selling the berries for some years, they were able to expand their berry-selling business to 28 locations. As a result, they managed to raise money amounting to over $1 million. Chad recounts how they reinvested this money in the berries farm; the money was used to equip the farm with berry harvesting and transporting equipment. One thing that Chad never liked in this family business is the way these assets’ value depreciated with time; he wanted to invest in assets that only appreciate in value.
Chad McWhinney’s entry into the real estate market was influenced by an article he read in the Time newspaper in mid-1993. The story highlighted how real estate businesses were thriving in Colorado. Accompanied by his brother Troy, they left for Colorado in September that year.
