Faces of Shea: Meet Tony Lanese, Community Representative at Azure

by Shea Homes Arizona on November 30, 2018


As the faces of Shea, our team members pride themselves on their knowledge and passion for helping buyers find a space perfectly suited to their lifestyle.

This month we chat with Tony Lanese, one of the Community Representatives for the newest entry in the Shea Signature™ line: Azure. Tony has been with Shea Homes® for many years, and his easy-going manner and sense of humor makes every interaction a joy.
Tony Lanese - Azure, Paradise ValleyQ: What makes the experience of buying, building, and living in a Shea Home special?

A: At Azure, it has been very special providing our discerning home buyers with the quality, features, and flexibility they want in a new home with the stability of one of the largest privately-owned home builders. We’re continuing the same business principles and customer service the J.F. Shea Family of Companies used in the construction on the Hoover Dam, Golden Gate Bridge, and BART Tunneling projects.

Q: What are the unique selling propositions of your community? What sets your community apart? 

A: I believe it’s having the ability to provide buyers with the options to truly personalize their homes, inside and out! What sets us apart is the attention to detail in the Design and Architecture of every single element that is Azure; allowing home buyers their own private space to add a custom pool and entertain in the privacy of their own backyard.

Q: Tell us about a time you helped a family find their dream home, and what it meant to you.

A: Recently I had a buyer who came out of a custom home she built 19 years ago and provide her with something she didn’t think was possible. A beautiful home she could personalize like she wishes, allowing her the right spaces to entertain her family and all within the Paradise Valley, AZ city limits, something she has always wanted. It’s incredible to be a part of this journey; personally, I think we’ll remain friends forever! 

Q: What community amenity do your homeowners love the most?

A: Customers really like the amazing Outdoor Lounge that provides them a cozy sitting area gathered around a warm gas fireplace with the sounds of our stunning water feature in the backdrop.

Q: What does living the Shea difference mean to you?

A: You become part of the Shea family and are treated like a family member. This is the same for employees and home buyers alike. It’s not a transaction, it’s an experience.
