Hi Nina,

I noticed in your blog that Pulte was one of the home builders.  I bought a brand new Pulte home and was very happy with the construction.  If you are a homeowner in the Lawson neighborhood of Waxhaw, you are pretty happy with what you read today in this blog.

Sheri Sperry - MCNE® good morning, Sheri. Pulte has an interesting "history" in Charlotte. At one time the homes they were building in Charlotte were such "dreck" they were "run out of town." About the time I got my license in North Carolina they were taking small steps in returning to this market and have been very careful since to build a much better product!
