Find out what it's like to rent from a company that cares

Is there a difference which apartment owner/management company you choose to rent from? Actually, it can make all the difference - from the choice of apartments and locations to the quality of materials and workmanship to the customer service you get along the way. Not to mention, Shea Apartment Communities is part of a family-owned company that's been around since 1881. But most of all, caring about the people we serve is always our first priority. That's the Shea Difference.


Exceptional Service

Instead of us telling you how great we are, we let our residents rate us. For the sixth year in a row, our residents have rated the Shea Properties' Apartment Portfolio "Superior" through a customer satisfaction survey facilitated by SatisFacts Research, LLC. Each year, SatisFacts surveys tens of thousands of apartment residents nationwide. Shea was one of 26 companies in the nation to be named "Superior" as part of SatisFacts 2011 Portfolio Awards.

SatisFacts also named Shea one of the nations "Top Five" companies receiving a superior ranking. This recognition marks the sixth year in a row that Shea's apartment portfolio has achieved a superior score and received a portfolio and national award from SatisFacts. So, as you can see, we don't just talk the talk, we walk the walk.

Family Owned Since 1881

Our humble beginnings date back to 1881 when we started as a small plumbing company in Portland, Oregon. Since then, J.F. Shea Co., Inc. has become one of the largest civil construction contractors and home builders in the country. We take pride in our history, family and our people. Bolstered by the core values of honesty and integrity, respect for the individual, teamwork, and competitive spirit, the J.F. Shea Co., Inc. remains one of only a

handful of multi-generational, family owned businesses in the country.

The company's legacy dots the country with our contributions to major projects such as the Golden Gate Bridge, the Hoover Dam and the Bay Area Rapid Transit (BART) System. These are but a few of the dozens of tunneling, bridge and water projects undertaken by J. F. Shea Heavy Construction.
