My name is Neil Gaffney and I am a Principal with Shea Development Group, LLC. Shea is a developer of housing. Shea has been under contract to Wicomico County Housing Authority for the past five years. During that time, we have been tasked to rehabilitate much of their housing stock consisting of Scattered Site units of two, three and four bedrooms, a townhouse community consisting of 100 units of one, two, three, four and five bedroom units plus an office structure and community room, a mid rise apartment complex consisting of zero, one and two bedroom units plus a community room and office space.

Vernon Esham Homes has been a significant part of this project which consisted of several Requests of Proposal as money became available. The workmanship has been extremely satisfactory, and it has been a pleasure to work with Mr. Esham. When the opportunity exists, we will definitely use Vernon Esham Homes again.

All of the work that was accomplished on the Housing Authority Rehabilitation program of which Vernon Esham Homes was a part of won a National Award of Excellence from the National Association of Housing and Rehabilitation Organizations.
