The Developer – A Legacy of Success
Gracepoint Homes is a builder at heart. As both a residential developer and homebuilder, we understand today’s homebuyer is looking for something more–for a home and way of life uniquely theirs and reflective of their values. With over 60 years of homebuilding experience guiding their team, Gracepoint Homes takes a highly personal approach toward the design, planning and building of a community– balancing the land, the architectural style and lifestyle of the homebuyer to create one-of-a-kind experiences and enduring value for families, for generations to come.
Leading the company is industry veteran Tom Cox, Jr., who is the Co-Founder and President of Gracepoint Homes. Cox, a second -generation homebuilder, began his homebuilding career as a customer service representative for nationally-recognized Emerald Homes in 1993. He went on to serve as Project Manager in Guadalajara, Mexico; Senior Operations Manager of Emerald’s Phoenix Division; and Division President of Emerald’s Dallas Division. Upon Emerald’s sale to a national builder, Cox became Houston Division President in the organization, managing the company’s entire Houston portfolio. He achieved profitability in three months and successfully took the startup from producing 190 units and $30 million in revenues to more than 2,670 units and $490 million in revenues, representing an unprecedented growth of more than 400 percent in four years. Cox left the national builder to start Gracepoint Homes in 2006.
