Improve communication with your buyers - Get your message out to the people that count!

Builder Partnerships is a representative agent for privately owned regional homebuilders.


Develop, Nurture And Maintain A Superior Network Of Contacts

Traditionally, the builder and manufacturer have had limited interaction; and what interaction they did have was focused on cost control and reducing the price paid for the material needed to build a new home. Our goal is to promote a deeper relationship to benefit all parties through direct interaction, information sharing and education. Through our programs, you can:

Educate Builders About Your Products

Through Builder Partnerships, we work directly with you to get your message out to our builder members. We feature manufacturer products on a regular basis, as well as provide information to builders on the best products for their projects.

Obtain Valuable Insight Through Roundtable Discussion And Educational Programs.

As part of our program, Builder Partnerships will schedule quarterly roundtable discussions between manufacturers and builders to help manufacturers understand how builders buy, and for builders to better understand manufacturer programs and products.

Our builder members represent some of the most successful privately held medium to small builders in the nation. As such, they have a strong motivation to remain competitive in the market.
