About the Builder
Shea Homes is a division of the privately held J. F. Shea Company which was founded in 1876 in Portland, Oregon. In fact, for the past 125+ years Shea has been one of the most respected names in the construction industry having built its business on a tradition of excellence, integrity and substance. Over the years they have helped to build such engineering icons as the Golden Gate Bridge, Hoover Dam, and San Francisco's BART System.
Here in the Valley, Shea Homes does much more than just build homes, they create neighborhoods and communities. In addition to Sonoran Estates, their projects in McDowell Mountain Ranch include Desert Cliffs and Sonoran Fairways and they have also developed over 30 communities throughout the North and South Valley as well.
Today, John Shea, grandson of the company's founder, is still actively involved in managing the family business that has now evolved into one of the largest builders in the country. Shea builds homes in Phoenix, San Diego, Northern California, Colorado and North Carolina and their product choices range from attainably priced attached and detached residences to luxurious single-family homes.
The company asserts that its success is based on a philosophy that includes outstanding customer service and providing quality at a good value.
