Shea Homes is the nation’s largest privately-owned home construction company based on annual closings. It is widely known for building homes that run the gamut from mid-priced to high-end. A member of the J. F. Shea Co., Inc., the company has been family owned since its inception in 1881.
Based in Walnut, California, the homebuilder builds new homes and develops vibrant communities in attractive, flourishing neighborhoods in Colorado, Arizona, Florida, South Carolina, North Carolina, Nevada, Texas, Washington, and, of course, home state California. Although Shea Homes concentrates on building traditional single-family detached homes, its communities feature home designs that also include upscale residences, town homes, and condominiums. Besides, the company is the developer of Shea Homes Trilogy Resort-style and Active Lifestyle Communities.
Shea Homes runs the Life the Difference program that allows homebuyers to be part of the homebuilding process. The main goal of the program is to educate homebuyers about Shea new homes and to offer an award-winning customer service. This way, the customer can get help at every stage of the home construction process. It also covers important topics that are poised to make transitioning from renting to owing effortlessly easy.
As a family-owned company, Shea Homes draws inspiration from within. Homebuyers will notice that Shea new homes and communities are designed with vibrant, modern family lifestyle in mind. The company is fully committed to delivering unwavering customer experience throughout the building process. From inside out, Shea new homes are thoughtfully designed and built to the highest quality using only the finest materials and components.
Of course, Shea Homes has been recognized for a job well-done. In 2005, the company was named US Best Builder by Builder Magazine, the Builder of the Year by Professional Builder in 2007, and the Customer Service Champion by JD Power & Associates in 2011.

Shea Homes: The History
J F Shea Co., Inc., the parent company of Shea Homes, was established in 1881 by John Francis Shea in Portland, Oregon. Ever since, the company remained in the hands of the family. Besides building new homes and home communities, the J. F. Shea Co, Inc. is involved in other activities such as civil engineering, commercial construction, multi-family real estate development, building materials supply, and venture capital.
What Sets Shea Homes Apart?
In over a century, Shea Homes has been involved in a myriad of charities. One notable contribution the company made recently is an $11 million donation to Catholic schools in and around Phoenix. The money was meant for construction of new facilities and renovation of existing buildings.
Family Owned Since 1881
Again, Shea Homes has been family owned since it was established in 1881 as a small-time plumbing company in Portland. Although it has made huge leaps and milestone in the past century or so, the company prides itself on its family heritage, its people, and its legacy of delivering quality.
Shea Homes has always stood for integrity and honesty, encouraging respect for competitive spirit and teamwork. Of more significance, however, is that the homebuilder is one of the few 4th or even 3rd generation family-owned families in the United States. It is this pride and rich family history that cajoles Shea Homes to strife to deliver high-quality homes every time.
Amazing Choice of Home Styles
Shea Homes has become a darling to homebuyers in several states thanks to its excellent choice of living options. The company offers living options for every age and lifestyle. Talk of modern condos, townhomes, and multi-family residences, master-planned communities nestled in the heart of leafy neighborhoods or active lifestyle communities that’ll simply knock your socks off – Shea Homes got it all!
