Our Mission

To increase the number of Professional Builders in the industry and improve the experience for both builders and consumers in the process.

Our story

The Association of Professional Builders was founded in 2014 by Russ Stephens and Sky Kolade to help established custom home builders generate more leads, more sales, and increase their margins while improving the building experience for their clients.  

Today, we empower builders across nations with essential systems, templates, and training, catalysing positive change within the industry.

Our Values

The driving force behind everything we do.

We Never Make Assumptions, We Ask More Questions

We only trust in what we know, not what we assume.

We Celebrate The Wins

We encourage our team members to share and celebrate wins as often as possible. No matter how big or small.

We Don’t Take Things Personally

We accept feedback and use it to help us become better versions of ourselves.

We Always Do The Right Thing Even When No One Else Is Looking

We’re honest, reliable and trustworthy professionals with everyone we interact with.

We Are Impeccable With Our Word

We always say what we mean and mean what we say. We also ensure the words we speak are accurate.

We Make Decisions And Own The Result

It’s not about always making the right decisions. But we always own the results of each of our decisions.

We Trust, But Verify

While it’s important to have faith in something or someone, it’s equally important to confirm accuracy.

Our People

Our team is made up of talented, passionate individuals from varying fields, backgrounds, and walks of life. We are united by a common goal; to improve the residential construction industry for builders and consumers.
