8400 Hawk EyeWhat does quiet sound like??

That is the beautiful sound at our home.

Montecito Estates is such a wonderful place to raise children. Our home is quiet, airy, and spacious! Every part of this house is cozy. The home is very energy efficient keeping super cool in summer and nice and warm in the winter time. The home bills are considerably inexpensive for a home of this size. Our side yard has the perfect space to grow fruits and veggies while still having a place for the little ones to play. The covered patio makes a wonderful dinner area and a great place for morning coffee. The park and pool is about a two minute walk from the house. On any given day, a walk in the neighborhood is amazing!! There are bike trails, running trails, and amazing views of

7173 Husky DriveThere is so much about our home that we loved. We did so much to it thinking we would never leave. We chose the place mainly because it was between both Albuquerque and Santa Fe. The best part about our house is the back yard. My wife designed the side and the ponds while I built the patio with ideas from Sandia Casino. The fence was built by myself with seeing fences like that in Santa Fe. We would go out at Sunset and look at all of the different colors of the sunset on the Sandia Crest. After that when it got dark we would watch the fish in our pond and some times have neighbors over for a glass of wine.
We also added the Central air and heat along with putting the Synthetic Stucco on our home to help with the cost of cooling and heating. It knocked

13112 Calle Azul We moved to this location because we love the quiet cul-de-sac location. It has both the feel of living in the country but with all the benefits of city utilities. We added many special touches to the home but our favorite is probably the high-end Pella Windows with blinds in them. We put a membrane on the home that has a life-time warranty that is transferable to a buyer and it has lowered our home owner's insurance. The house has lots of natural light which we love. Our yards are xeri-scaped -- not zero-scaped and require lower water. Both yards have drip systems for watering.

Every year when January rolls around you vow to lose weight, save money or spend more time with family and friends. But what goals do you set for your home?

New Year's Resolution For Your HomeThorough Cleaning

One of the best and least expensive ways to feel better about your home is to clear it of clutter. This year go room-by-room clearing anything that you don't use, wear or love and donate it to charity. Clean out your closets and any other space that is packed with things that you haven’t seen in years. Sell things (ebay, criaigslist, throw a yard sale) and turn those things into money that you can use towards a home improvement project that you’ve been putting off. Here are some other cleaning tips.

  • Deep clean your carpet.
  • Rent a sander and refinish your hardwood floors.
