Whether you are a builder, a large or small-scale developer, real estate or mortgage broker, seller of building supplies, attorney or in any way connected to Philadelphia’s burgeoning real estate development industry, your BIA membership affords you unsurpassed opportunities to get involved on behalf of your business, the industry and the city.

Here’s what some of your industry colleagues have to say about the value of their BIA membership.

“The BIA gives me the ammunition I need to stand out from the rest of the agents with a broader perspective on the industry. BIA updates and activities help me stay on top of current issues and give me a unique point of view when I'm in front of buyers on the front lines. I know what my clients want. One recent BIA happy hour alone led to meetings with two separate, large residential developers looking for representation on their upcoming projects.”

Mike Goldstein, The Mike McCann Teamat BHHS


“As a residential mortgage banker for the last 30 years, I have been involved in many Realtor and builder associations, but none more engaged and effective than BIA of Philadelphia. BIA’s board and members work hard to represent the best interests of residential development. The time I have given to the organization has given me a great sense of accomplishment and has resulted in many meaningful relationships that have benefited my business.”

Jim Goldstein, Finance of America Mortgage
