IRVINE, CA (October 4, 2005). MBK Homes has been named to the prestigious Sunset Western Home Alliance. Sponsored by Sunset Magazine, the program is designed to bring together the region's best builders and help further the magazine's mission of "building the foundation for living well in the West."
"Membership in the Sunset Western Home Alliance is a validation of the quality of our product and the craftsmanship that goes into each home we build," said Tim Kane, president of MBK Homes. "At MBK, we share Sunset's vision by providing quality homes as a 'foundation for living well in the West.' We are proud of our close alignment with their organization. Our participation with Sunset further illustrates the mutual commitment of the two organizations to enrich the lives of Westerners through excellence in home design and construction."
Members of the Sunset Western Home Alliance are selected on an invitation-only basis. The group's goals include fostering an exchange of information on homebuilding trends as well as connecting some of the nation's top builders to Sunset's millions of readers. Among the strict criteria used to choose Alliance members are a commitment to sustainable and environmentally responsible building and development, customer service, dedication to high building and energy-efficiency standards, and an innovative use of interior space.
Along with the cachet that comes from being associated with Sunset, members also receive promotion through their membership, both within the magazine and through participation in Sunset's yearly roster of special events, including the annual Celebration Weekend festival and the Sunset Western Home Alliance Conference.
