New director of land acquisitions at TRI Pointe

Aug. 26. TRI Pointe Homes Carolinas, a unit of the TRI Pointe Group family of premium homebuilders, has announced the promotion of Margaret Puckett to director of land acquisitions. In her new role, she will focus on sourcing new strategic land opportunities and pursuing critical entitlements in the Charlotte market, which was ranked No. 2 nationally for homebuilding prospects, as well as continuing to build the TRI Pointe Homes Carolinas team.

Puckett joined TRI Pointe Homes Carolinas in 2019 as land acquisition manager. Prior to that, the Penn State University graduate worked at Pulte Homes serving as purchasing coordinator, land analyst and land acquisition project manager.

“We are very grateful for what Margaret has done for our team to date and excited about what this well-deserved promotion means for her continued growth and leading us to even greater heights,” said Gray Shell, president of TRI Pointe Homes Carolinas.

She has been instrumental in building the company’s initial land pipeline, with over 1,700 lots owned or controlled in the Charlotte market.

Puckett’s expanded responsibilities in her director of land acquisitions role will include maximizing TRI Pointe’s well-defined submarket and consumer segmentation strategy and local market knowledge as well as honing its disciplined underwriting process.

The division’s aggressive long-term growth strategy in the Carolinas involves contracting and purchasing several thousand single-family and townhome lots during the next 24 to 36 months.
