President's Message

Elevating Our Influence for 108 Years and Counting

Welcome to the home of the Master Builders Association of King and Snohomish Counties, the number one trusted and respected source for housing.

Here, you will find builders, contractors, and tradespeople ready to help you realize your dream home, take on the remodel you’ve always imagined, or just fix that annoying roof leak you’ve been dealing with. DIYer? Browse our many expert articles and guides on everything home, then catch up on the latest legislative news and advocacy efforts on behalf of the Puget Sound-area housing industry. 

Industry professionals—and those curious about the building industry—can network with other member professionals and sign up to attend educational courses, large speaking engagement events, posh awards gatherings, and laid-back happy hours. Want to participate in our fun and life-changing stewardship events like Rampathon® and Painting a Better Tomorrow™? We’d love to have you. 

No matter your interests, you’ll soon learn that we are plugged in to just about every outlet in the Puget Sound Region—because we love where we live, and want to keep it that way. 

As the residential building professionals of the Puget Sound Region, our members—more than 2,800-strong—have a simple goal: to give every one of our residents a place they can comfortably call home, today and tomorrow.
