What it Means to be a Home Builder in Johnson County, Kansas
What it Means to be a Home builder Vlog Transcript
My wife, Mary, and I started Bickimer Homes in 1982. Our youth was probably the most valuable asset our company had at the time. Thirty-seven years later, we are blessed to see Bickimer Homes in the extremely capable hands of our son, Tommy, and his talented staff.
One of the things I fought my entire career, is the stereotypical notion of what it means to be a homebuilder.
Let me start by saying I didn’t, and Tommy doesn’t, wear a tool belt to work. Not that there is anything wrong with that.
I have great respect for those who bring their skilled labor to the jobsite every day. What Tommy and his management team does every day is run a homebuilding business, one of the largest in the State of Kansas. They are knowledgeable professionals whose business plan wasn’t written on the napkin they used at lunch. They may drive a truck, but they also utilize the latest technology while coordinating dozens of independent subcontractors and suppliers.
I sometimes hear, “they just don’t build houses like they used to,” and while that may be true, it’s not in the way you may think. Bickimer Homes is building houses better than ever before.
We don’t cut corners. We don’t spitball pricing. We are licensed and have builder’s risk insurance. Our business success can be attributed to delivering a quality product at a fair price. It should come as no surprise that Bickimer Homes is one of the oldest and most respected homebuilders in the Kansas City Metropolitan Area.
Technologically savvy and customer friendly, our company currently specializes in building new homes in the Johnson County cities of Lenexa, Shawnee, Olathe, and Overland Park. Bickimer Homes adheres to a culture that encourages excellence. You should expect nothing less when entrusting us with the single biggest investment in your lifetime.
So you see, Bickimer Homes is not any one individual.
We are a company that takes a craftsman’s pride in what we produce. Our employees care. We expect our subcontractors and suppliers to care.
Building dreams on a solid foundation is not just a motto, it’s our mission. Let us prove it to you.
