About Us

Established in 2004, by Ben Shakespeare, Shakespeare Development Group is a locally owned and operated business with nearly 30 years of experience in construction. Our priority is maintaining our reputation with the many Realtors, building inspectors, subcontractors and recent home buyers.

We are a hands-on company that is committed to excellence. We work with our homeowners to provide the quality custom homes they are looking for. Our most recent projects have included Entrada, Santa Clara Vineyards, and the Cliffs which feature’s our 2011 The Parade of Homes.


I have been working with Shakespeare Development Group for many years and it has been a very positive experience. Shakespeare not only built my own private residence but they have also been partners with me on multiple residential investment projects. The homes Shakespeare builds are the highest quality and extremely attractive inside and out. They put together a great team of subcontractors with vast experience. Ben Shakespeare does a good job of listening to his customers and providing them with the features they are looking for in a new home. The team is responsive and readily takes care of any issues that appear. I have recommended Shakespeare Development Group to others in the past and I will continue to do so in the future.


I have been in the construction business since 1990, and started my own company in 1995. I operate in Utah and Colorado, and have worked on over 5000 homes. I have had the opportunity to work with hundreds of contractors: some good, some bad. and a few great. I would rank Ben Shakespeare and Shakespeare Development Group among the few great contractors I have had the opportunity to work with. Ben has shown not only that he builds a high quality home, but that he has a great relationship with his sub contractors.

The above attributes are key to 1) building a quality home 2) giving the client a high level of customer service after the home is built. I own a home built by Shakespeare Development Group in the Entrada community. Not only have I been very pleased with the quality of the home, but his customer service has been exceptional. Shakespeare’s sub-contractors have followed through promptly and have been very professional. Nothing is more pleasing to an owner of a new home then to get that kind of service, especially when its not your primary residence and live hours away. Ben has been honest in all our dealings and has earned my respect with his integrity as he has done everything he has promised. I highly recommend Ben Shakespeare and Shakespeare Development to anyone building a home, and especially to those buyers that demand a high level of quality and service. Sincerely, Dennis


I have been involved in two transactions with Shakespeare Development and Mr. Ben Shakespeare during the past 4 years. These transactions related to lot sales and did not involve construction. In our dealings Mr Shakespeare conducted himself in a professional manner and demonstrated an ability to communicate honestly and resolve issues amicably. There were no unresolved disagreements or unfulfilled promises. All financial and other obligations were fulfilled as agreed. Sincerely Troy
