Hero About

Welcome Home

Founded in 1909 and headquartered in Bellevue, Washington, the Master Builders Association of King and Snohomish Counties (MBAKS) is the nation’s oldest and largest local homebuilders association, serving every area of the residential building industry.

Like our founders, our members continue to take a leading role in all facets of homebuilding, addressing the many concerns and issues affecting our region’s ever-evolving housing industry. From groundbreaking technology to revolutionary advances in sustainability, from leading government advocacy efforts to giving back to our communities every chance we get, our goal never wavers.

We are the professional homebuilders, architects, remodelers, suppliers, manufacturers, and sales and marketing professionals in your community who believe homeownership is a right for everyone.

We are MBAKS and we’d like to welcome you home.

Our Manifesto

Everyone deserves a place to call home.

Not just an address or somewhere to take shelter, but a little slice of the universe that’s all your own. A place where you can plant roots and grow. Where you have a voice. Where you make memories. Where you always belong. A house is a structure with four walls and a roof—but a home is wherever you can be you. That place might look a little different to everyone, but the feeling of safety and comfort it provides is universal. And to us, that’s a feeling no one should live without.

Since 1909, the Master Builders Association of King and Snohomish Counties has been making home happen. We live in one of the best places in the world, and as representatives of our region’s housing industry, it’s our duty to keep it that way—by making housing available and attainable to everyone. That’s why we support those who provide the Puget Sound region with places people can call home.

We’ve been the voice for builders for more than 100 years, helping to shape our community for the greater good. We devote years to creating legislation that promotes a free market where housing supply can keep up with regional demands. We collaborate with our communities to develop land in ways that serve everyone, balancing environmental preservation with housing provision. And we’re continuously building a home of our own, where our members can connect, learn from each other, and succeed. Together, we’re determined to provide our region with attainable housing—today, tomorrow, and for the next 100 years.

There’s a reason people say home is where the heart is—because home is where everything begins. It’s integral to human success, to creating connected communities, and to building a better tomorrow. That’s why, as the Master Builders Association of King and Snohomish Counties, we don’t just make housing happen—we make home happen.
