Oakland County Executive L. Brooks Patterson says he is "disappointed" with the news of the Pulte Homes relocation.

On Friday, he issued the following statement:

"We are disappointed that Pulte has chosen to leave Michigan. However, we respect any company's right to determine its future. Oakland County continues to attract thousands of sustainable, high-paying jobs in the knowledge-based economy through our Emerging Sectors, Medical Main Street, and Automation Alley initiatives. Oakland County is helping to drive Michigan's economy."

The Pulte Group confirmed in a statement Friday it is moving its headquarters from Bloomfield Hills to Atlanta, Georgia.

Pulte is one of the nation's largest home builders, bringing in more than $4.5 billion last year.
