He is the President and Chief Visionary Officer of the Tien Sher Group of Companies. He became a ‘one-stop shop’ for real estate developer clients, streamlining services such as assembling, rezoning, designing, selling and servicing new home projects. In 2001, Charan took the first step into the development industry creating housing affordability solutions through innovative midsized, vertically integrated developments. Charan purchased 12 acres in Whalley. Through his efforts, Whalley has been recognized as the Historic Whalley District, promoting Surrey as a centre for arts and culture, and working hard to preserve Whalley’s history. He gave birth to the micro-suite in Surrey which allowed for a down payment as low as $6,000. The BALANCE building was BC’s first-ever for-sale micro-suite building. Charan’s next project is 141 units – six storey building and soon after 35, 37 and 46 storey towers on the iconic Flamingo property. He is also planning a 56 storey iconic tower, a large office podium and commercial space transforming the intersection of 108th. And King George Blvd.
He is a very strong, high quality community builder and developer and has created new single-family and multi-family communities and subdivisions throughout Surrey, Richmond, New Westminster and Parksville. Developments included Quattro 1, 2, and 3, The Venue, Balance and The Maverick, all which were touted as bringing Yaletown to Surrey. The Balance units are among the smallest units in Canada and built to be affordable, and Venue which was aimed at young hipsters.
