All around this country, you'll see the Shea family's legacy in countless places—the Hoover Dam and the Golden Gate Bridge, to name just a few. These landmarks symbolize the family's commitment to enduring quality, and we take pride
in being part of the American landscape. From this rich history comes Shea Homes' passion for design and quality, as well as a deep understanding of how people live today—what's important to them in a home, and a community. It's why the homes we design today aren't like those built a century ago—or those we'll build a century from now.
That's The Shea Difference™. We build our homes for smart, discerning buyers who appreciate the thoughtful design, thoughtful people and thoughtful processes that truly set Shea Homes apart. We obsess over the integration of form and function. The small details that matter. The ingenious innovations that make space more usable, more adaptable, more livable. When we design our homes and communities, we think about real life—and how we can make it even better. That's why we are proud to invite you to "live the difference" at any Shea Homes community.
