In 1881, John F. Shea, established a small plumbing business. From those modest beginnings and guided by a philosophy of caring for his customers, the J.F. Shea Co. grew into one of the most renowned and respected leaders in the construction industry and an award-winning new home builder and developer of new homes.

For 127 years, members of the Shea family and their companies have carried on their founder’s tradition of caring and excellence. Their extraordinary milestones include providing the foundation for the landmark Golden Gate Bridge, working on San Francisco’s Bay Area Rapid Transit System (BART) and serving as a managing partner for the construction of the Hoover Dam.

Since 1968, Shea Homes, an independent member of the Shea Family Of Companies, has built some of the finest new homes and master-planned communities for more than 73,000 families across America.

The company is a leading new home builder. Among new home builders, Shea Homes has the distinction of being the largest privately held company, building new home communities in seven states, including California, Arizona, Colorado, Florida, North Carolina, South Carolina and Washington. Shea Homes also builds Trilogy new home communities, designed to meet the needs and desires of Baby Boomers.

In September 2007, J.D. Power and Associates ranked Trilogy by Shea Homes highest in customer satisfaction among the largest active adult community new home builders in 34 U.S. markets. Trilogy communities are high-end resort new home communities offering a new choice in living to those looking for an exciting lifestyle that revolves around wellness, exploration, continued learning, and close personal connections. Architectural product design and amenities reflect the changing needs of the baby boom generation, including business services, world-class clubs and a diverse range of recreation options.

Shea Homes is honored to be acknowledged by its peers for its excellence as a new home builder. In 2005, the National Association of Home Builders recognized Shea Homes as one of “America’s Best Builders,” and in 2007, the company was named “Builder of the Year” for new homes by Professional Builder Magazine. Shea Homes’ most satisfying success has been listening to its customers’ new home needs and providing quality workmanship in the finest neighborhoods and new home communities available today.

Shea Homes believes that nothing is more essential to the prosperity of the new home communities they build than the future success of today’s children. That’s why they are investing in the future of our children through literacy and urging parents to Read With Your Child 15 Minutes a Day. Introducing the joys of reading to children at an early age can help a child perform better in school and acquire a love of learning. It can also help them develop positive attitudes and healthy self-images. And as they mature, it will make a tremendous difference in their quality of life. It only takes 15 minutes a day of reading to have a profound impact. And by building their capability for success, Shea Homes, will also be building a strong foundation for our entire nation’s future.

Now, as we look back on these achievements, our memorable neighborhoods and new home communities in California, Arizona, Colorado, Florida, North Carolina, South Carolina and Washington we are reminded that it still comes down to one basic principle: When you care, it shows.
