About Us

“…At the age of 21, I returned home from serving a 2 year mission for my church, my family took a trip to Lake Powell in Southern Utah…When I saw the blue water and red cliffs again, that's when I knew I was home. I still remember that feeling like it was yesterday…Growing up we went to Lake Powell for a week every summer and I loved it…That feeling, the excitement, the anticipation, the love. That is what I want each of our buyers to have about their very own Red Cliff Home…”
– Ben Beard

Las Cruces Technical Education Fund


We are committed to bringing technical education to Las Cruces high schools. We’re seeking to bring technical education to our young people so that they leave high school equipped with the skills they need to get high paying jobs in construction and other technical, hands-on career fields.

Red Cliff Homes has partnered with the Las Cruces Home Builder's Association to build these education programs and give back to our community, and we donate $1,000 from the sale of every home to this cause. Thank you for your support in raising the next generation of builders.

Our Team

Ben Beard

Ben got involved with residential building as a high school student where he took classes in general construction and electrical wiring. He then worked at a plumbing supply shop and as a framer before leaving on a 2-year proselyting mission for the The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints.

Upon returning from missionary service, Ben attended Brigham Young University and obtained a Bachelors of Science degree in Construction Management while working part-time to gain industry experience.

After graduating in 2012, he moved to Las Cruces where he worked as a Superintendent and Purchasing Manager for a local builder.

In 2017 he launched Red Cliff Homes with a dream to serve the Las Cruces community.


Luis Molina

Luis Molina has almost 20 years experience in the construction industry. His passion is in designing new homes and overseeing the construction from beginning to end. He started off his construction journey framing homes during the day and designing them his spare time for local builders. His love and dedication to the industry have helped him climb the ladder. Luis now leads Red Cliff Homes as the Construction Manager and Lead Designer. He says "The payday for me is not every other Friday. It's when you see the house you built turned into a HOME. The satisfaction that comes from walking down the street that was once a bunch of empty lots turned into a community, for me, is priceless."
