Our mission is to revitalize and develop properties in the urban core, and to provide quality diverse housing options, and a pathway to home ownership for those who desire it.
Who We Are
Legacy Asset Group, LLC (“Legacy”, “LAG”) is a minority-owned Kansas City based real estate entity focused on making quality housing accessible to a local population.
The firm’s values can be traced to our founders’ decades-long educational, economic, and social history in Kansas City gives it a vested interest in realizing a thriving community.
What We Believe
Affordable housing and quality standards of living are not mutually exclusive in Kansas City.
Real estate ownership is central to attaining and bestowing generational wealth for individuals and families.
Each renovation and development project should be delivered with the highest standards and integrity with a focus on the experience for future residents.
How We Deliver
Find single and multi-unit properties with opportunity for renovation, or land with development potential.
Cultivate partnerships with local Kansas City organizations to provide resources that will create a legacy of homeowners and entrepreneurs.
Offer learning opportunities to inspire generational wealth and create upward mobility for Kansas City residents.
We present a proven solution to a real-world problem by creating new and diverse housing options for individuals and families across various income levels who can live in a desirable environment in Kansas City’s urban core without sacrificing quality or affordability.
We deliberately engage Kansas City businesses and nonprofit groups who share Legacy’s passion for diversified housing and economic development in the urban core, and that will collectively strengthen the City’s economic development prospects.
Provide a Springboard to Home ownership
We establish a pipeline of future homeowners by intentionally providing programs, resources, and tools to individuals and families who live in Legacy’s homes and units and aspire to attain greater generational wealth by transitioning to homeownership in the future.
We lead development projects in abandoned and neglected sections of the City and address the “gap” in quality housing availability for individuals and families who find themselves priced out of more desirable options in the neighborhoods and communities they currently live.
We create communities of the future by incrementally rebuilding neighborhoods to include a mix of residents of various means, needs, and backgrounds whose collectiveness can blunt the impact of great macro-economic swings to the overall community.
We cultivate communities that are not defined by the wealth levels that invite gentrification, or by the poverty levels that create housing projects. Instead, we will help foster a balance from which the City’s current and future residents may benefit from a gradual and sustained increase in the area’s economic growth and housing values.
Addressing the urgent need for affordable housing in the Kansas City metro area requires a dynamic set of solutions to educate and prepare potential homeowners on the virtues and responsibilities of home ownership, and to develop a network of urban developers able to provide an inventory of attainable housing options that can increase the availability of homes to a citizenry that increasingly demands it. Legacy Asset Group's “Pathway to Promise” initiative seeks to address both challenges through a unique two-pronged approach.
