MBA Associates Choice LogoThe Associates' Choice Award is given to a builder, remodeler or land developer who is a member of the MBA and incorporates loyal use of associate member suppliers and subcontractors. The company awarded must portray a professional business approach in all activities and practice excellent scheduling and payment routines, quality customer service and take part in philanthropic activities that give back to the industry and the community.

"Being a two time winner of the Associates' Choice award is truly an honor," said Craig Rakowski. "This award means a lot to us as it is voted on by the associate members of the MBA. At James Craig Builders, we recognize that without the hard work and dedication of our associate team we would not be as successful as we are today."

The MBA is a non-profit and non-partisan association which represents the building industry in the metropolitan Milwaukee area. The MBA develops and offers education for consumers as well as members. By establishing business ethics and industry standards, the MBA has earned a reputation as a trusted resource. The goal of the Metropolitan Builders Association is to promote the home building industry while demonstrating to consumers the many benefits of working with an MBA member. They found the best way to do that is to promote members working with members and thus the Associate Advisory Board created the Associates' Choice Award.

"The MBA has many fine builders, but our associate companies singled out James Craig Builders for this award because of their high standards for customer service and dedication to quality throughout the building process," said Rick Hodges, executive director of the MBA.
