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.
