Rancho Verde Story: Part 8 – The Builders


Just an example of the many Recommended Builders in New Mexico. Prime contributors to Rancho Verde.

Rancho Verde is a phased residential lot sub-division currently offering Phase 4 lots of 1+ acre on very buildable terrain with sweeping view lots, including those of the Sandia Mountains. Services include paved roads, electricity, high quality water, high speed internet and a sensible Homeowners Association (annual dues are currently only $76 and have been under $80 for 20+ years).

Rancho Verde is located 20 minutes east of Albuquerque, NM via I-40, a highway that experiences minimal congestion and provides a direct and relaxing commute in the mornings and evenings.

Three recommended builders who have had actual experience building homes in Rancho Verde and the East Mountains are:

1) John Lowe of Panorama Homes. John is a long time Albuquerque resident and graduate of Engineering from the University of New Mexico as well as being the third generation of his family fully engaged in the construction business. John features a unique design and build approach which delivers his customers the vision they have for their home. John has built in Rancho Verde and currently has a custom home under construction in Phase 4.

She started building in Rancho Verde right from the inception of the development with her first Rancho Verde home being awarded 1st place in the Parade of Homes. Peggy has been responsible for the construction of a dozen custom homes in Rancho Verde and she is recognized for her care, design flare and attention to detail. Pictures of both the exteriors and interiors of Peggy’s award winning homes, including Best Outdoor Living, are available on her web-site.
