Among the many companies that have been created as part of the JF Shea Family of Companies in the last century are Shea Homes and, more recently, Shea Active Lifestyle Communities.
Since its inception in the 1960s, New home builder, Shea Homes has become one of the most respected privately-owned homebuilders in America. Our passion for making people happy extends well beyond the "sticks and bricks" of traditional homebuilding, and shows itself in everything we do.

We’ve created a division within Shea Homes to develop resort communities geared to the Baby Boom generation. Baby Boomers helped change their world, and we knew they’d demand a new breed of community as they become empty nesters and retirees.

We launched the Trilogy by Shea Homes brand of Active Lifestyle Communities in 1999 and have been adding more communities to our portfolio ever since, with new locations opening this year and more to come. Customers have made Trilogy the preferred brand in Active Lifestyle Communities.
