For three generations, Price Brothers has helped improve how people live and work. With residential and retail properties, planned communities, apartments and homes, Price Brothers builds, develops, and manages livable spaces with careful attention to quality, design and people.
In 1908, Isaac Price, at the age of 15, came to the United States by himself to build his family a better life. From his native Poland, he brought with him a basic business philosophy: make a good product and make your customers happy.
After settling in Kansas City, Isaac became a tailor, and through his talent and years of hard work, he saved enough to bring his entire family to Kansas City. In 1922, he built them a house. As he was finishing construction, a gentleman passing by so admired the quality of his craftsmanship that he made an offer. Isaac sold him the house and started building a business.
In the 1940s, Isaac's sons Steve and Sam joined the family business after serving overseas. Today, a third generation of brothers carries the business and work ethic into the twenty-first century.
Since the sale of that first bungalow, Price Brothers has grown into one of the largest real estate owners in Kansas City. Always owner-operated, today Price Brothers comprises four companies: Price Brothers Development, Price Brothers Management, Price Brothers Construction, and Price Brothers Residential.
But even with the companies impressive growth, Isaac's sons and grandchildren have stayed true to his founding philosophy: serve your customers, nurture your employees, and provide quality living and working spaces.
Price Brothers is built from Isaac Price's original commitment to family, quality, integrity, and diligence. That commitment has always been fueled by a true pleasure in building something from the ground up that people will enjoy and then being available and accessible when your customers need you. Over the past 90 years, that attention to detail and hands-on management have been the cornerstones of Price Brothers and their residential, development, construction, and management companies.
"When a resident moves out of an apartment, I ask them one question, Would you rent with us again? If they say, Yes, then we've done our job. That's how we measure our success."- Steve Price
"Knowing your business means knowing your strengths and weaknesses. That's why I always surrounded myself with smart people, and I was never afraid to ask for help. A company is only as strong as its employees."- Issac Price
For Price Brothers, success is in people: in lasting and rewarding relationships with customers and in finding and keeping quality employees.
Now in its third generation, Price Brothers marries tradition with innovation and skill with dedicated customer service. But more importantly, Price Brothers listens and responds to the needs of those who live and work in their communities.
