PHOTO FOCUS | Award-Winning Vista Dorado in Brentwood

by Shea Homes Northern California on November 20, 2017


It’s no wonder that the breathtaking Vista Dorado community was selected as 2017 Community of the Year by the Bay Area Building Industry Association. Located in the rolling hills of Brentwood, California, with close proximity to shopping and dining, these spacious and gracious homes have plenty to offer homebuyers.

Shea Homes® Vista Dorado Plan 3 home was selected as Best Architectural Design in its category, and it’s easy to see why. The home, at approximately 4,126 square feet, beckons those who love to cook and entertain. It features an expansive 2-island kitchen with a super pantry, butler’s pantry and an optional outdoor kitchen. The optional Suite Home features its own private entry, which allows for independent living, and the dog washing station is a great design selection for our canine-loving friends. This home is truly a stunner. But, don’t take our word for it – view photos of our model home below, or take a virtual tour and experience life in the Vista Dorado Plan 3 for yourself.

Final Balance at Sage Release with Last Chance to Personalize!

by Shea Homes Northern California on May 8, 2017

Balance at Sage | Shea Homes | Livermore, California
The popular Sage community located in Livermore, California, has seen tremendous success since opening in 2016. Sage by Shea Homes® recently received 6 awards from the Building Industry Association, and with good reason – the Sage community is already a wonderful and relaxing place to call home. Over 200 homes are now sold at Sage, and community facilities and amenities are well underway, including the pool, spas, fitness center and club house, which are planned to open to residents this summer.

While each home type at Sage offers something unique, the two-story Balance homes have proved the most popular, and as a result, they are nearly sold out. In fact, the final release of Balance homes (with exception of the designer model homes) is scheduled to be released on Saturday, May 13th at 11AM. This is the last opportunity to fully personalize a Balance home with the Shea Design team.

In order to purchase a Balance home, interested parties must pre-qualify with Shea Mortgage. Call (866) 696-7432 or EMAIL US to learn more. Follow Sage on Facebook and register to receive community updates so that you stay in-the-know.

We Build Excellence

by Shea Homes Northern California on April 4, 2014


The annual Bay Area Building Industry Association (BIA) Excellence Awards were recently announced, with Shea bringing home three more trophies this year. Shea Homes Northern California was honored with awards in the following categories: Best Advertising Campaign, Best Architectural Design of a Multifamily Community, and Sales Team of the Year.
Team Tralee
The duo in Dublin, Margaret McGinn and Aaron Holiday, were selected among stiff competition as the 2013 Bay Area Sales Team of the Year for their combined efforts at the Tralee community.

“Well deserved,” comments Adam Hieb, Shea Homes Northern California VP of Sales and Marketing.  “They sold 41 homes and had a 99.3% customer satisfaction rating in a new community.”

This dynamic Tralee duo stands outs by evaluating how they are working together on a frequent basis. But it’s not all business between the two of them. “We have fun together!” says Aaron. “We are always laughing and making jokes in the office. Our customers appreciate that we are always smiling.”

When asked about their partners, Margaret replied, “Aaron is a man of integrity. He enjoys working hard and providing an extraordinary experience for each guest.” Aaron commented, “Margaret truly exemplifies the purpose of Shea Homes, which is to enhance people’s lives. She is amazing!”

Drop by our Tralee community in Dublin and meet the 2013 BIA Bay Area Sales Team of the Year for yourself.
