by Robert Borges on June 13, 2022

Having constructed more than 100,000 homes since its founding in 1968, Shea Homes is among the nation’s largest private homebuilders. Recognized as an industry leader with a reputation for design, quality, and customer service, Shea Homes builds new residential real estate in 10 states throughout the country, coast to coast.

What Are Shea Homes Trilogy communities?

In 1999, Shea Homes introduced its Trilogy® division—a series of master-planned high-end retirement resort communities geared toward 55+ active adults. The architecturally superior product design and amenities within these communities reflect the changing needs of the baby boom generation, including business services, world-class clubs, state-of-the-art fitness facilities, and a diverse range of recreation and education opportunities.

Shea Homes currently has 14 Trilogy 55-plus and resort lifestyle communities across Arizona, California, Washington, Nevada, North Carolina, Virginia, and Florida.
