Occupation: Home Builder.
Hometown: Kansas City, MO.
Bryce, 28, born and raised in Kansas City, MO, attended the University of Kansas. While in school, his real estate ambitions were born when he and his parents purchased two town homes and renovated them. After the completion of the projects, he realized he had no intention of ever using his Journalism degree. Bryce began working for Pulte homes in Kansas City, a fortune 500 residential builder, shortly following his graduation. It wasn't long before he wanted more, and then at age 24, with little money and no real experience co-founded a high-end residential building company. Four years later, the Gahagan - Eddy Building Company currently builds many of Kansas City's finest custom homes with most projects exceeding $1.5 million. Bryce attributes his success to his family and the values his parents instilled: honesty, integrity, and ambition. He believes what ever you choose to do in life, do it, but do it better than anyone else.
