BUILDER TIM SHAFER

Tim Shafer is the owner and builder of Shafer Family Homes, LLC. We are a Harborcreek based new home construction business that servers the greater Erie area. Tim graduated from Harbor Creek High School in 1996 and attended Penn State The Behrend Campus. Tim worked full-=time for his dad’s new home construction business where he learned the ground to roof process of building a new home. Tim earned his real estate license in 1999, at the age of 21, and is an integral member of the Howard Hanna Team. Tim’s real estate experience enables him to know the local market and put that knowledge to work when building custom and spec homes.

From an early age, Tim joined his dad at many job sites; he worked summers in the field, which has made him a very experienced builder. The Shafer family has built hundreds of homes in some of Harborcreek’s finest neighborhoods, such as Fox Hollow, Foxwood, and Walten Woods.

Tim and his wife Katie, reside in Harborcreek. She has taken on the role of Marketing Director and is not afraid to get dirty when needed on the job site! When Tim is not working, he enjoys listening to scanners, washing cars, vacationing in St. Martin and having wings with his buddies. He also enjoys visiting and working with his brother, Troy, in Nashville as he restores historic homes for his company Nashville Flipped. You can catch Troy’s first season of Nashville Flipped this spring on the DIY Network. Tim’s goals are to offer high quality affordable homes that will bring many years of happiness to his customers.

What a great surprise waiting for us when we moved into our new Shafer Family Home! Tim was great to work with and complied with our wants and wishes. We found the home to be of exceptional quality and great workmanship. This home will be a great retirement house, one that we have waited for a lifetime.- Kerry and Don
Working with Tim Shafer and Shafer Family Homes, LLC was a very good experience. Tim and his staff were easy to work with, giving us ideas and letting us express things we could like to see in our new home. They were efficient, used quality building materials, and made sure things were cleaned up at the end of the day. We were able to walk through our home while it was being built and inspect it routinely. We would recommend Tim Shafer to anyone wanting quality and excellence in the building of their new home!- Tom and Lana
