This is the first woman-owned Guyanese real estate company to meet the international standards associated with the international certification; which recognises its commitment to excellence, customer service, and adherence to the highest industry standards.
On January 27, the certificate of accreditation was presented to the company’s Chief Executive Officer, Amrita Sookram, during a simple ceremony hosted at Herdmanston Lodge in Georgetown.
In a telephone interview with Guyana Times, the 23-year-old Sookram shared her story, during which she explained that she had been unemployed for months after completing her secondary school education. And after months of no response from several entities, she started a shipping and logistics business. One year later, Sookram began to connect and collaborate with companies in the construction and real estate industries, and this sparked her interest in modern interior designs.
Despite the challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic and those in the industry, Sookram was able to build her company and contribute significantly to the advancement of real estate in Guyana, given that she is also an executive member of the Guyana Association of Real Estate Professionals.

Detailing how this ISO 9001: 2015 certification would help her company to become competitive on the local, regional and international markets, Sookram said, “ISO 9001 deals specifically with the quality management system. This ensures we have solidly built processes in place that will only lead to improvement, efficiency, consistency, and customer satisfaction…
“This certification will help my business expand because it’s internationally recognized, and it gives our clients a sense of comfort even before having to interact with us…it establishes credibility and trust among consumers, clients, and other business partners. In today’s international marketplace, such a designation validates that an organization adheres to global standards of quality assurance, manufacturing and business.”
Sookram added that Steadfast Logistics, which is located in Kitty, Georgetown, is committed to ensuring its customers consistently receive high quality products and services, which in turn brings many benefits, including satisfied customers, management, and employees.
“For those who are aware of the process of getting the certification and the process of maintaining the certification, it’s quite tedious…but, of course, we do plan to live up to it for the entire duration of Steadfast Logistics,” Sookram stated.
Guyanese companies and agencies with ISO 9001 certification include Guyana Geology and Mines Commission (GGMC), National Milling Company of Guyana, Guyana Logistics and Support Services, Guyana National Bureau of Standards (GNBS) and Cevons Waste Management Service, among others.
