Member Testimonials

 “One of the greatest benefits of my HBA experience has been getting to know other builders. Builders that I had simply considered competitors became friends and peers. I learned that each of our companies has its own brand, product, and process – and even though we may sometimes work to earn the business of a client, we all do better working together as an industry rather than strictly competitively."

Vice President, Payne & Payne Builders
2015 HBA President


 “Joining the HBA in 2007 has single handedly been the best thing I have done for my company on both a professional and personal level. The interaction with quality Associate Members and peer Builder Members give a local area builder, as myself, the education and professional development that is necessary to compete in the ever changing housing market."

Ted Otero
President/CEO, Otero Signature Homes LLC
2017 HBA President

“I can directly relate my accomplishments as a builder to being actively involved on my HBA Association Board. Networking with the best of the best taught me immeasurably and exposed me to the most successful builders in Northeast Ohio.”

"As a 3rd generation home builder and the 10th member of the Puzzitiello family to be a President of a Homebuilders Association, there is no doubt the benefits that we have received heavily outweigh the time commitment that is needed to help serve this Association."
