PulteGroup has been providing the American Dream of home ownership to families for almost 70 years. What started as a single home built and sold by the entrepreneurial spirit of an 18-year-old Bill Pulte, has grown into one of the country’s largest homebuilding companies. PulteGroup sells under many of the industry’s most recognized brand names and serves customers as they move through all phases of their lives. The Company operates in approximately 50 of the leading housing markets throughout the country.

A true American success story, PulteGroup got its start in 1950 when 18-year-old William “Bill” Pulte, with help from his high-school buddies, built a five-room bungalow near the city of Detroit, MI. In constructing his first home, Bill set the cornerstone on what would grow into one of the largest and most successful home building companies in this country’s history. In a world where less than one-third of new businesses ever get to celebrate their 10-year anniversary, PulteGroup’s long history of success is a testament to Bill’s vision and the passionate people who have worked to fulfill it over the years.
Today, PulteGroup is the nation’s third-largest builder with an unmatched capacity to serve homeowners as they move through all stages of their lives. Much has changed since Bill Pulte first picked up a hammer, but not the Company’s commitment to delivering a superior quality home and customer experience. For a timeline detailing the Company’s evolution.

Built TO Honor
Saying THANK YOU by doing what we do best
Since 2001, more than two million soldiers have valiantly served our country in Iraq and Afghanistan. More than 6,500 have made the ultimate sacrifice defending our freedom, while many more have suffered the serious wounds of war. And often when these heroes return home, their fight is not over. Instead, many continue to face unbearable challenges related to their injuries, as well as joblessness and homelessness.
All of us at PulteGroup are forever grateful to our veterans for the countless sacrifices they and their families have made defending our country. And we wanted to say thank you by doing what we do best. In living our promise to “make lives better,” the PulteGroup Built to Honor™ program provides mortgage-free homes to deserving wounded veterans across the country.
Launched in 2013, PulteGroup operations across the nation have banded together with our dedicated and generous suppliers and contractors to support this effort, having built 30 new homes worth upwards of $9 million for deserving wounded veterans. From Michigan to Texas and Washington D.C. to California, our hope is that together we can make a difference assisting our veterans and their families as they rebuild their lives here at home.
