chief marketing officer. "It's consumer feedback that inspires our architects
and designers to create homes in a way that best meets the modern family's

According to Wahl, Pulte Homes invests considerable time and resources into
fully understanding consumer desires and sentiment to build homes that are
truly consumer inspired. In fact, to date 11,000 homeowners provided feedback

buyers; and, more than 1,100 hours were spent with focus groups walking
prototype homes.

"Pulte has a long legacy of being a leader in conducting extensive consumer

success when the floor plans hit the market."

The first video features the company's Life Tested process with interviews
from consumer focus groups, as well as highlights of some of the new product

company will showcase short videos about specific product innovations and

Retreat, Oversized Pantry and Super Laundry.
