Team Spirit
The Arizona Cardinals may not be headed to the Super Bowl, but what a season it was! We like to think that maybe, just maybe, we had a little something to do with it (wink, wink). As a proud partner of the team, we had a blast sharing our enthusiasm for the Arizona Cardinals – in the stadium, at the office, and in all of our Shea Homes Arizona communities.

Let’s start by taking a look at where it all began… the Ultimate Fan Cave.
Fan Cave
The basement of a model home in Peoria’s Vista Montaña community was where it all began. When Rich Tomey, business development manager of the Arizona Cardinals, saw the fan cave decked out with everything a Cards fan could desire — from oversized lounge chairs, to framed jerseys, a football field carpet and the best of the Arizona Cardinals replaying on the big screen – he reached out to Shea Homes to explore the possibility of a partnership. As it turns out, Shea Homes and the Arizona Cardinals were a perfect match!

It certainly wasn’t for lack of trying. Dan Anglin had been house hunting for a long time. But all those resale homes lacked the modern style he prefers. And after he and Susan met at work and eventually married, they were in total agreement.

“All the resale homes we saw needed a lot of updating,” explains Susan. “In this market, the good houses get taken or they need a ton of work. At Stepping Stone we could build a new house for the same price as a fixer-­upper.”

The Anglins discovered the SPACES homes in Highlands Ranch and fell in love with their modern aesthetic and open floor plans. Unfortunately there weren’t many homes left, but the good news was that a new neighborhood with some of the same Shea SPACES home plans was coming to Parker. Both Dan and Susan work at an oil and gas company in Meridian Village, so the location would be perfect. (On a bad day, their commute is all of 15 minutes.)

They showed up the day Stepping Stone opened. Theirs were the first names on the interest list—even though there was no model to see and barely a road to the lots, which Susan “could kind of see in the distance,” she says. Despite that, “we knew when we saw the floor plan and a picture of it that this was the one we wanted. We just had to use our imaginations.”

The home Susan and Dan chose was Shea Plan 4005 in the Modern Prairie elevation, whose clean lines and sleek, white brick exterior spoke to their contemporary tastes. The Anglins entertain often, so they love the modern, open plan.
