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.

5 Fun Ideas for Your Flex Room

by Shea Homes Arizona on November 2, 2018

 

At Shea Homes® Arizona, our design team spends months, sometimes years, meticulously crafting our homes to tailor each floorplan to specific lifestyles. But no matter how much planning and heart goes into each design, the most important thing is that your home feels uniquely you.

That’s where the flex room comes in.

Flex rooms are designed to be flexible. You might see it on the floorplan labeled ‘flex’, or ‘optional space’, but they all amount to the same thing: your space to do with what you please. This is your chance to create a space that you love to return to, that will wow your guests when you give them a tour.

Here are five of our favorite flex rooms, curated to give you some inspiration for the spaces that will add the perfect pop of personality to your new home.

1. A Hobby Room
Hobby RoomYou can finally have a space dedicated purely to your passion. Whether you are an artist, a fitness enthusiast, or a collector, flex rooms provide a special area in your home that is solely dedicated to your favorite hobby.

2. An Office or Study Area
Home OfficeLet’s face it, no one truly leaves all of their work at the office. By turning a flex space into a home office or library, you will have a place where you can focus when you need to work late to meet a deadline or decide to work from home for the day. When you are not using it, the kids can use the space as a study area!

3. An Entertainment Room
Game RoomTurn your flex room into a space dedicated to having fun! Make your home the perfect place for entertaining by creating your own game table room, or a private movie theater. By having a separate entertainment space, you won’t have to worry about disturbing the rest of the family when you break during a game of table tennis, or when you want to watch an action movie late at night. On top of that, your home will quickly become the gathering place for all your friends!
