About the Builder
Tempe based UDC Homes entered the Phoenix market in 1992 and built extensively in North Scottsdale through 1998 when they were ultimately acquired by Shea Homes. Among their other projects in the area was MMR’s own Eagle Ridge community and, interestingly enough, some of their more popular "Desert Ridge" floor plans can also be found at Sonoran Fairways.
Shea Homes is a division of the privately held J. F. Shea Company which, was founded in 1876 in Portland, Oregon. In fact, for the past 125+ years Shea has been one of the most respected names in the construction industry having built it's business on a tradition of excellence, integrity, and substance. Over the years they have helped to build such engineering icons as the Golden Gate Bridge, Hoover Dam, and San Francisco’s BART System.
Today, John Shea, grandson of the company's founder, is still actively involved in managing the family business that has now evolved into one of the most largest builders in the country. Shea builds homes in Phoenix, San Diego, Northern California, Colorado and North Carolina and their product choices range from attainably priced attached and detached residences to luxurious single-family homes.
The company asserts that its success is based on a philosophy that includes outstanding customer service and providing quality at a good value.
