HISTORY More than 60 years ago, Jan Czuker broke ground on his first development. It laid the foundation for the Legado Companies iconic real estate business that would help to drive the rapid transformation of Southern California. The Legado Companies have built, operated and financed the construction of thousands of quality residences and retail spaces for the region since then. Today, Edward Czuker, Jan’s son, carries on his father’s legacy and commitment under the “Legado” name to build strong and vibrant communities. Under his leadership, the Legado Companies are making a mark throughout Southern California and beyond. The principles that built the Legado Companies remain constant: insist on quality, never cease to innovate, and always give back to the community. Legado, which means “legacy” in Spanish, pays tribute to Southern California’s Spanish heritage.
