More than 25 years ago, a Southern California guy and an Irishman started a general contracting business. They had been in business just a short time when their business found its defining moment.

After the Northridge earthquake in January 1994, some general contractors – seeing the increased demand – raised their rates drastically.

“We got some advice,” said John Parker, co-founder of Parker Brown, Inc., “from a guy we trusted. He said, ‘Keep your rates the same. Customers will know it and appreciate it, and they will always come back to you.’”

That was great advice they followed. “And today we still have some of those customers we first worked with back then,” said Scott Brown, co-founder of Parker Brown, Inc.
