"Having a central site with so many houses and builders allows the public the chance to come out to one spot and see a variety of building styles and homes in one location. We want our potential homeowners to purchase the home of their dreams, and the homes on the central site will offer great options with the latest in design trends as well as energy saving building practices," said Chad Stearns, 2017 GMHBA President.

The Greater Montgomery Home Builders Association (GMHBA) was formed in 1950 when a handful of builders gathered to discuss the home building industry. Since that first meeting, the GMHBA has grown to nearly 1,000 business members, representing over tens of thousands of individuals in Montgomery, Elmore, and Autauga counties.
As one of the most respected organizations in Alabama, the GMHBA is the only professional trade association
representing the residential segment of the home building industry in the River Region area.
