Member Testimonials


I love the updates that I receive every day of projects that are going out for bid. It is especially nice that I can use the filter creation tool to narrow down the projects that interest me. After seeing which projects are available, I am able to go directly to the website and view the prints. The easy takeoff tools make it easy to figure projects out.

I first joined Builders Exchange of Michigan in 1985 and my membership is a huge part of our success. I could not imagine trying to work in our industry without this tool!

Michael Otis
Member since 1985

The Builders Exchange of Michigan is a vital part of our company in getting job leads. Their customer service is tremendous! In fact, because of their desire to see their clients thrive, they personally called when a project was missed by our staff and made sure we saw it. We ended up being the low bidder on that job and it was the most profitable job we have had to date. It would not have happened without Builders Exchange of Michigan. We are glad they are a part of our team.
