Scottsdale, AZ. (January 4th, 2024) –
For an impressive 12 consecutive years, Trilogy® by Shea Homes® has once again ranked as America's Most Trusted® Active Adult Resort Builder by Lifestory Research in their 2024 national study among 55+ home shoppers. Trilogy has ranked #1 in the study for twelve years in a row, an achievement unmet by any other brand.

“In a year characterized by market challenges, our teams around the country remained committed to creating dynamic communities where homeowner members have the opportunity to transform their lives and Live Happier®. We know that 96% of home buyers say trust in a builder is of the utmost importance when buying a home. That’s why we are so proud to remain America's leader in the hearts and minds of consumers. As a leading 55+ community builder, our focus has always been on listening to customers, developing trust-based relationships with them, and finding new ways to meet their needs, like creating additional wellness opportunities and making friendship and kindness central to our lifestyle experience," Shea Homes Active Lifestyle Communities President, Jeff McQueen, said. “Gaining and keeping buyers’ trust is at the heart of what we do, but it matters even more during a challenging market. We could not be prouder of this incredible recognition by study participants and how it reflects on our front-line teams across the country.”

Here are some noteworthy details on this year’s historic award:
  • Trilogy received the highest Lifestory Research Net Trust Quotient Score in its Active Adult Resort Builder category for 2024 at 111.7.
  • The Net Trust Quotient Score calculates an index based on various aspects of study respondents’ brand perceptions—such as quality, trustworthiness, reputation and other brand attributes.
