Corporate Information

In 1881, company founder John F. Shea established a small plumbing business. From those modest beginnings, his sons and their sons after them, built J.F. Shea Co. into the largest privately held builder in the nation. The company legacy of unbroken family management continues today.

 

For over 130 years, members of the Shea family and their companies have carried on their founder's tradition of caring and excellence.

We are reminded that it still comes down to one basic principle: When you care, it shows.

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 94,000 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 eight states, including California, Arizona, Colorado, Florida, Nevada, 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.

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 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.

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.
