Her work is impeccable and she is an asset as a partner in completing any project

that we embark on.

I am pleased to recommend Citizen Properties Inc. as a general contracting firm of a higher caliber.

I contacted Citizen Properties for the design and rebuild of my house in Bel Air. From the get-go, Shannon Sheehan and her team impressed me with their professionalism and attention to detail. The craftsmanship of my new home is of exceptionally high quality. The construction process went very smoothly and was right on schedule. Communication was constant and clear and if any issues arose, Shannon and her crew were ready with a solution. Contract administration was accurate and invoicing prompt and easy to understand. All subcontractors demonstrated a high level of expertise, were extremely easy to talk to, and had a long-standing relationship with Citizen Properties. After the job was completed CPI has always been available whenever I need them.

I have worked with many contractors over the years and my experience with Citizen Properties is clearly a stand out in all levels of satisfaction. I give them my highest recommendation.

It has been with great pleasure that for nearly a decade we have had the opportunity to collaborate on numerous projects with Shannon Sheehan and her team at Citizen Properties.  

With projects ranging from commercial to residential, whatever the scope or size ...Citizen steps up to the curb bringing years of experience, professionalism, and integrity.  

Shannon stands by her work, has wonderful attention to detail and keeps meticulous records.

Passing the true test in this business is that Shannon maintains good relationships with homeowners for years after project completion. Her thriving business consists primarily of referrals and recommendations.

Thank you,
Julie Hart, Designer

Shannon Sheehan of Citizen Properties has been our contractor for some ten years. During that time, she has completely renovated our house. Shannon has always been our first choice for construction because of the deep and abiding care she gives to every project.

Her budgets are always reasonable and accurate; the work is done in a timely fashion; the quality of workmen she uses are top notch, and her company always sees the job to the end with an unwavering commitment to quality.

We have no hesitation in referring her to our friends and acquaintances. Her work is impeccable and she is an asset as a partner in completing any project that we have embarked on.

I would like to highly recommend Citizen Properties and Shannon Sheehan. They did a complete remodel on a beach house in Malibu. They made the task go easily and were always cooperative, working with the Planning Commission (which is difficult in Malibu). Their choice of subcontractors was always the best quality.

Most of all, my home has turned out beautifully, with much admiration from all who walk through the doors. Shannon and her staff are always available, even though the home was completed two years ago.

Dear Shannon, we wanted to write and formally express what we have often told you in person -you are the greatest contractor around!

Working with you has helped us realize our dream of having what we want in our home, and of having things come into being in a most pleasant manner (especially considering the extent of the details, the difficulty and the decisions that were required). We love living in our wonderful home. Everyone comments on the excellent craftsmanship and the attention to details.

We can never thank you enough, and we can’t wait until another opportunity comes along to work together again.

Our best regards and affection,
Mary F. Yoder & John C. Ruppenthal

To Whom It May Concern:  I have known Shannon Sheehan since 1987 when she worked in my firm in the capacity of office manager. Such a position is critical in the life of our firm as it involves client contact, contracts, financial matters and other sensitive issues. Ms. Sheehan worked exceptionally well in this role. Ms. Sheehan is dedicated to professional performance and is careful and thorough. Honesty and competence are crucial in my practice, as I depend on references and repeat clients. Ms. Sheehan’s values are consistent with mine in this regard. I am sure she continues to work in the honest, open and professional manner that characterized her work with me.

Dear Prospective Clients,  
The Painted Turtle is a 173-acre camp specifically designed and built for children who have serious medical conditions. It is a large campus with more than 25 buildings. This year more than 2,000 children and family members will be served, all of whom must deal with the consequences of serious illness on a daily basis.

The mission of the camp is nothing short of providing a life-changing experience for these children and their families. As you can imagine, that is a rather lofty goal.  

Shannon Sheehan was a member of the camp’s design team. She was involved for years prior to construction in the design development stage. She was also involved during construction, and she was in charge of procuring all fixtures, furnishings, and equipment after construction was completed. Shannon was professional, creative and willing to go the extra mile to meet our deadlines and create a magical environment.

s work greatly enhances the spirit of the camp and thus helps us fulfill our mission.
The Painted Turtle is in its fifth year of operation and I can confirm that her work is holding up well, despite the wear and tear that is inevitable in a camp that operates on a year-round basis.  

We feel fortunate to know Shannon and are quite pleased with the outcome of her work. I would not hesitate to recommend Shannon to you! 

Best wishes,  
Michael L. House, PhD

Shannon Sheehan has done contracting work for me on my home in the Hollywood Hills. I can recommend her work without hesitation. Not only is she a superior contractor, she is a fair and decent person who takes great pride in her work. She would be an asset to whoever is fortunate enough to employ her.

To Whom It May Concern:  Shannon Sheehan of Citizen Properties was the general contractor on an extensive addition we made to our home from June of 1990 to January of 1991. Ms. Sheehan and her employees constructed a guest house on our property, in addition to a carport, landscaping, and hardscaping around our new pool and backyard area, and installed a new kitchen floor in our main house. During the seven months, it took to complete the job, Ms. Sheehan was there daily. She not only coordinated the efforts of her own crew and sub-contractors but served as a liaison between us and our pool contractor as well -- including some touch-up work around the pool that he had neglected to perform (for which she did not charge us).  

Ms. Sheehan was always responsive to our needs and requests -- not to mention our not-infrequent changes of mind -- and kept us up-to-date on each phase of construction; she was always accessible, courteous, and promptly returned our phone calls if we had questions when she was not on-site. She didn’t install any fixtures, trim or hardware without first consulting us as to taste and preference, and the quality of such items she installed was first-rate. In the past 22 months since construction was completed, Ms. Sheehan and her people have returned whenever asked to fine-tune several rough spots that occurred -- luckily for us, and a testimonial to the quality of her work, those occasions have numbered exactly two.  

We’ve had a good bit of experience with contractors since purchasing our 64-year old "fixer," and Ms. Sheehan has surely been the best we’ve worked with. She’s honest, dedicated, efficient, personable, and responsible, and we’ve heartily recommended her to anyone in need of an excellent contractor. We will continue to do so.

Citizen Properties Inc. extensively remodeled a house for us. Shannon Sheehan, President of Citizen Properties lnc. provided clear communication and information. Her office staff was extremely helpful and courteous.

Our experience with the construction crew was excellent. They were always on time, kept the site very clean and provided us with quality workmanship. We are very happy with the end result, so much so that we have employed Citizen Properties Inc. to do a second remodel for us.

Dear Citizen Properties, Inc.,
This letter is to thank you and your entire staff for your efforts in making two natural disasters (Hurricane Iniki & the April 14, 2018 flooding of Kauai) that affected my family and homes as painless as possible. I was completely lost and confused with all the paperwork and my questions and concerns were falling on deaf ears whenever I spoke to the insurance company. Citizen Properties, Inc. you became my family’s voice and advocate.
From your initial participation in working with the insurance company to the completion of paid claims and property restoration, Citizen Properties, Inc. can be depended upon to take care of business whether it’s handling insurance adjustors, permits, communicating with all county departments and rebuilding.
Also, your personal involvement and availability and the attention and care given by your office staff allowed me the opportunity to focus on my family, my community (which had been devastated) and us rebuilding our lives. Shannon, you removed the stress and worry that could have otherwise made the disasters even worse. From the moment you were hired I knew that any unforeseen or unusual issues would be handled properly, expeditiously and fairly.
In closing, I want you to know how much my family and I appreciate everything you have done and that I look forward to working with CPI in the future and I will recommend you to everyone I know.
Forever Grateful,
Cheryl Schenck
