ABOUT MASTER BUILDERS ASSOCIATION
The Master Builders Association of King and Snohomish Counties (MBA) was founded in 1909 by a group of Seattle builders who saw a need to unite in order to address the many concerns and issues affecting the housing industry. They shared technology and jointly solved construction problems. They actively worked with government to develop laws that protected the environment while still providing attractive, affordable communities and homes for the families of the Puget Sound region.
Because of its active approach to the region’s housing needs, the MBA has grown to become the largest local homebuilders association in the United States.
