Over the past 25 years Shelly Hogan, our VP of Sales, has brought countless floor plan designs, model homes and neighborhoods to life here in the Central Valley. As Shelly says, “25 years goes by fast when you are having fun! There is no other industry I would rather be in.” Read on to learn more about this dedicated leader, and what she finds most rewarding about her role within the home building industry.
A: I’m a manager (and the biggest fan) for our sales, design, marketing, and mortgage teams, which are either in the corporate office or on-site in our neighborhoods. I am a board member and intimately involved in everything from neighborhood and floor plan design to the close of escrow on every new home.
A: 25 years
A: I started in the mortgage business in my early 20’s. I have enjoyed learning along the way while holding various positions from Loan Funder, Processor, Branch Manager, Escrow Coordinator, New Home Sales Associate to VP of Sales. I believe that to effectively manage, train, and support your team, it is helpful to have previously held the positions yourself. I have been licensed by The Department of Real Estate since 1994 and hold a California Real Estate Broker license.
A: Tesoro Viejo, a master-planned community that is unlike any other in the Central Valley, and the McCaffrey Homes collection of homes offered there. Watching the community come to life and providing a variety of homes so different generations can live together in one neighborhood is everything we envisioned. Being a member of the team to make it all happen is an amazing feeling!
A: Three! I grew up in a home built by Karen McCaffrey’s dad, John Bonadelle. I then bought my first McCaffrey Home in Northwest Fresno in the early 90’s. We currently live in McCaffrey’s first custom home development, Bellaviera, in a custom home built by McCaffrey Homes.
A: My day-to-day consists of emails, phone calls, texts, meetings, driving the neighborhoods and community, walking homes under construction, planning, solving, creating, and inspiring! It’s a little bit of everything and each day is different.
A: I love working with a team that loves what they do. When you surround yourself with passionate people, the biggest challenges aren’t so bad and the good days are that much better.
A: I find the most rewarding part of my role is working with architects and land planners to assist with the design of new neighborhoods and new home floor plans. Within these plans, I know that people will enjoy their homes, raise families, and start new chapters in life. It’s why I am so passionate about this business!
A: Outside of work, my fun seems to change on a yearly, monthly, and even daily basis. As life changes and our kids grow up, hobbies, travel destinations, and our down time looks different. Typical everyday moments can be fun when you are laughing and have good people around you to share it with.
A: I’m a Fresno native. My husband Steve and I have been married 31 years. He is an executive chef and I don’t know a thing about cooking! We have 2 beautiful daughters, Breelynn and Payton and we have two English Bulldogs, Newton and Twix.
