Remembering Heroes

by Shea Homes Arizona on May 26, 2017

Memorial Day
During this long weekend, we take time to remember and honor those who have stood on the front lines to protect their country and to provide freedom to all of those who call it home. On Memorial Day, we pause to thank the heroes that have sacrificed their lives for us. We also remember the families who have mourned the loss of loved ones, and continue to stand alongside of them in their times of need.

At Shea Homes®, we like to thank the heroes for their service and help their families by offering our Heroes Reward program. This provides them with a 1% base price incentive 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. It is a way to celebrate the heroes in our communities and recognize how they have made a difference in our lives and the way we are able to live today.

Those we recognize on Memorial Day should not be taken for granted or forgotten. We remember these men and women and honor their service and sacrifice. We are thankful for how they have made such a difference in our lives and we are encouraged every day to do our part to “live the difference.” [read more…]

Heroes Rewards

As summer vacation comes to a close, teachers are gearing up for another year of hard work. We want to thank Arizona teachers for their service by reminding them about the Heroes Reward program, which provides them with a 1% base price credit toward the purchase of a new Shea Home. This special offer is also available to active and retired military, active or retired police officers, and active or retired firefighters.

The Heroes Reward Program is just one small way we at Shea Homes® Arizona are able to recognize and thank our military, teachers, police officers and firefighters for all that they do to make our communities a better place to live and work.

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 present it to their Shea Homes Community Representative, along with proof of current or previous employment.
  3. The 1% credit 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.”

How this 13-year-old BackCountry resident is giving back.

by Shea Homes Colorado on December 29, 2014

 

And how you can too.

For many, the holidays are a time for outreach to those who are struggling. You can find endless ways to volunteer—check out the ideas below—but if you need additional inspiration, look no further than BackCountry resident Lily Larsen. Last month, this Mountain Ridge Middle School student wrapped up the second phase of her aid project to the children of Syria, sending 127 pairs of much-needed socks and 162 pairs of underwear. This followed the 335 stuffed animals Lily collected and sent last May.

Her inspiration sprang from a conversation with a Syrian family friend, who explained how the 2011 uprising changed everything in her once-peaceful homeland, creating more than one million child refugees, many of whose parents were imprisoned or killed. Lily thought stuffed animals might help those grieving children.

“I wanted to give them something to hang on to,” says Lily. “I thought about how it would feel if something like that happened to me.” A school project prompted her to take action, and the BackCountry – a Shea Homes community responded generously to her flyers by dropping off toys, and more recently, clothing. Fired up by her success, Lily plans to continue her outreach projects twice each year, shipping the goods to Boston’s NuDay Syria, an organization that forwards contributions to the struggling country each month.

For Lily, it was kids in crisis who inspired her to act. What might it be for you? Handypersons (or those willing to learn) might want to pick up a hammer for Habitat for Humanity. This nonprofit has built simple, affordable housing for families since 1976. [read more…]

Shea Homes Arizona family division is proud to offer an exclusive home purchase credit to active and retired military. This special offer is also extended to teachers, active or retired police officers, and active or retired firefighters.

The Shea Homes Heroes Reward Program provides a 1% base price credit toward the purchase of a new Shea Home to recognize and thank the efforts of our community’s military, teachers, police officers and firefighters.

The redemption process for the Shea Homes Heroes Reward Program is quite simple. Here’s how it works:

  • Eligible active or retired military, teachers, police officers and firefighters print out a certificate, available here.
  • Participants fill out the form, and present it to their Shea Homes community representative, along with proof of current or previous employment.
  • The 1% credit is applied toward the base price of a new Shea home.

Retired Marine Rich Bauchert recently participated in the Shea Homes Heroes Reward Program when he purchased a new home at the Shea Homes Marbella Vineyards community in Gilbert. Bauchert says the 1% credit helped tip the scales in his purchase decision.

“It was a fantastic process,” said Bauchert. “We found the house and closed in 18 days. The Shea folks here at the center and through the whole process were great.” Bauchert said a quick closing process meant he could move his wife, 18 and 14 year-old sons and Jack Russell terriers out of a crammed apartment and into their new home before the school year started. “We’re super picky. We love this house. It’s great. We just finished our pool. I can’t say enough about the Shea staff here at Marbella Vineyards.”

Learn more about the Heroes Reward Program by visiting one of our many communities across the Valley, or visit our website at http://www.sheahomes.com/arizona.
