Ranked year after year among the top commercial and multi-family real estate companies, Curry Real Estate Services brings its high standard of excellence with integrity to every phase of its business.

Sought after for its exceptional performance in brokerage and property management, Curry treats every commercial and multi-family asset as if it were its own and has over four million square feet of gross leasable space under management. The company also has its own multi-million-dollar portfolio of commercial and multi-family properties located throughout the greater metropolitan area including Kansas City, Leavenworth, Merriam, Overland Park, Paola and Shawnee in Kansas; Blue Springs, Gladstone, Grandview, Independence, Kansas City, Kearney, Lee’s Summit, Liberty, Parkville, Pleasant Valley, Riverside and Smithville in Missouri.

A well-managed company, Curry has endured if not thrived through every economic cycle for nearly 100 years. 2024 marked our 100 years and while there are many measures of success, Curry values one above all others – relationships. A people-first philosophy makes consideration of and doing for others the standard for Curry. The result is a professional team passionate for service to residents, tenants and owners; one that understands property investors and their aspirations in ownership; and who is invested in the community and the shared vision to rise together. All of that is deeply rooted in what is today a multi-generational, family-owned business.

That family started in 1924 With Charles F. Curry, who founded the real estate company and was later joined by his son, Charles E. Curry. In 1954, Raymond R. Brock, Jr., joined the company and, in 1980, led the acquisition of the company’s real estate assets. Those assets have been managed, nurtured and grown by the next generation led by Ellen Todd, Curry president and CEO. Todd joined the family business in 1980, taking on roles of increasing responsibility over the years and today oversees a team of long-time executives who live out the company’s people-first standard.
