‘Tis the season to make your home jolly

by Shea Homes Arizona on December 8, 2017

Decorating your home for the holidays can be fun and something special that the whole family gets to enjoy. Every year we unload the great big holiday boxes from the attic, remembering all of the fun decorations filled with memories that have been collected over the years. We at Shea Homes® recognize these moments and with the help of some of our favorite Phoenix-area Etsy shops we have put together a few of our favorite holidays finds whether it be for your own home for your family to cherish through the years or a gift to someone you love. Consider these local stores your one stop shop for all things holiday this season.

Sisters Michelle and Cheryl had a dream of starting a business for years, and in 2013 they made their dreams a reality by taking over a part of Michelle’s home to create an office and studio to design and create everything their Etsy shoppers get to enjoy! The sisters explain that their operation is truly a family affair, often recruiting their children and husbands to join in on the fun. Check out SignsStuffnThings for handcrafted items such as wood signs, wreaths, and home décor — not just for the holiday season, but all year long.

Bekah Jennings got her inspiration back in 2008 when her 5-year-old son was using stamps with paint on chipboard. Now, almost a decade later, each banner she creates is hand stamped in paint, distressed, and strung on ribbon. To meet the demands of a growing business, in 2010 Bekah asked her Aunt Johnell to join her as a partner, making it a family affair.

What is a Flex Room?

A flex room is essentially an area in your house that can be customized and used for a number of different functions. At Shea Homes, we typically refer to these multi-purpose rooms as “Flex Spaces.” Flex spaces can be entire rooms or an area in your home that can be utilized in different ways throughout your time and life there. We build these flex spaces into our floorplans so that homeowners can customize their living space to better fit their different interests, lifestyles and evolving life stages. From extended patios to second master suites and game rooms to reading nooks, incorporating a flex space into the layout of your new home will allow you to further customize your Shea Home to fit your family’s needs and interests.

Honoring our Heroes

by Shea Homes Arizona on November 10, 2017

Honoring our Heroes on Veteran's DayToday, we gather to honor, thank and remember the women and men who have defended our freedom and country, those who have selflessly served to keep us safe. Today, we remember to celebrate and to thank our heroes every day.

The Heroes Reward Program is just one small way we at Shea Homes® Arizona show our appreciation to those who are currently serving and those who have served the Unites States of America. The program provides our heroes with a 1% base price credit toward the purchase of a new Shea Home in Arizona. This special offer is also available to teachers, active or retired police officers, and active or retired firefighters.

The redemption process for the Shea Homes Heroes Reward Program is simple:

  1. Eligible active or retired military, teachers, police officers and firefighters print out a certificate, available here: http://bit.ly/HeroReward
  2. Participants fill out the form, and on the first visit, present it to their Shea Homes Community Representative, along with proof of current or previous employment.
  3. The 1% incentive is applied toward the base price of a new Shea home (program not valid at Trilogy or Encanterra communities).

If you or someone you know qualifies for the Heroes Reward Program, we invite you to come tour one of our Shea Homes communities around the Valley and see for yourself what it means to “Live the difference.”
Heroes RewardWe would also like to invite you and your family to join us and the Arizona Cardinals today for a free event from 12 – 2 p.m. at our new community, Compass at Recker Pointe in Gilbert (1850 S Follett Way, Gilbert, AZ 85295). The event includes free food, entertainment, photos with Big Red and autographs with Arizona Cardinals Cheerleaders and Arizona Cardinals Defensive Lineman, Josh Mauro. Learn more & invite your friends HERE.

We hope you and your family have a wonderful, safe Veterans Day.
