I love looking at these cool homestyles you sell John. So different than the colonial style domination of the east coast.

Hi Belinda,  I really like the name too.  We also have a La Luz trail that climbs all the up to the top of Sandia Peak.. A very strenuous trail but WOW what a treat!

Hi Cheryl,  That is exactly what La Luz offers, those unstoppable views yet serenity and personality.

Hi Laura,  I love what I do and getting to know a neighborhood like La Luz is important to myself and my clients.

Hello Marge,  Glad your liking my Localism posts, just trying to get the word about some of these great communities like La Luz.

Hi Doug,  These really are some unique homes with timeless open plans, the views most of these have it just gorgeous!

Hey Marco,  Prices range from the Low 200's to the high 300's.  The biggest variable being size but upgrades play a major part of pricing as well.  One of Antoine Predocks early designs.

Hi Toni,  La Luz is quite unique and offers some great views, true community and a perfect location!

Hi Keith,  This community was built before Albuquerque's west side was really a place.  Still timeless though!

Hello Joan,  Thanks for the accolades, I know the people who reside in La Luz absolutely love it!  This is when you DO want the neighbors talking to your buyers.

Hi Will,  Toady's weather completely obstructed any views La Luz would have had. Rain, snow and low clouds..the mountain was not visible all day!

Patricia, Thank you as always!  I enjoy showcasing these interesting neighborhoods

Hi Jeanean.  I could live there, but I do enjoy a bit more yard space.  None to speak of here.

Hello Vickie,  I don't know if you have ever researched any about Antoine Predock, he is the real deal and quite famous.

Hi Michelle,  Thank you for your kindness! It easy to present these unique communities.

Hi Steve, And like you  I enjoy looking at homes and architecture from others areas of the country as well.  I suppose we all get a bit bored with what we see and sell.

Thank all of your for sharing your comments about this Townhome community known as La Luz, if you ever get a chance check out some of the work by Antoine Predock the architect of this complex, do so, he has created some beautiful and very famous pieces of architectural masterpieces.
