Peaceful, unique and relaxing is how Tamera Romero describes life in Mariposa, just north of Albuquerque.
“Mariposa is so peaceful and very unique,” said Romero, a New Home Specialist at D.R. Horton. “Nowhere else can you find the amenities, 10 miles of nature paths and a community backing up to 2,200 acres of open space in The Mariposa Preserve. The views are breathtaking! It’s the gem of Rio Rancho.”
Romero, a real estate professional for 21 years, said her experience selling homes at Mariposa is what she loves about her job.
“I get to meet so many different people,” she said. “It broadens my horizons and keeps me grounded. Helping someone find their dream home is a blessing.”
Romero said homebuyers who visit Mariposa’s Jemez Vista neighborhood and view the D.R. Horton homes are shocked at the affordability of the homes in the upscale community.
“They love how open and airy the homes are, with tons of windows that bring the natural light into the home,” she said. “Homeowners say the homes feel larger than the square footage suggests and are surprised at the low prices. The savvy buyers also appreciate the energy features we include.”
Model names reflect the Mariposa atmosphere, with five models to choose from: Tranquility, Serenity, Serene, Harmony and Zen.
One of Romero’s favorite features are his and her vanities in the Tranquility model, separated by a huge closet. She also loves the cathedral ceilings in the two-story Zen model and the huge island that fits nine people in the kitchen of the Serene model.
“I love to cook, and that kitchen is spacious yet cozy,” Romero said. “Our models are well-appointed and truly represent our homes, showing off the unique D.R. Horton features you’ll see in our customers’ homes.”
Romero said the most frequently asked questions from families are about nearby schools.
“They love the prestigious schools their children will attend in Rio Rancho,” she said. “Mariposa has access to quality education, with buses to all in-district schools.”
Both families and retirees appreciate that the area is spread out and neighborhoods are separated by nature paths.
“They find it peaceful and beautiful,” Romero added. “It’s just off the beaten path which eliminates noise and congestion so you can relax. The fact that it’s not a 55 plus community is also a plus for retirees.”
“The HOA is reasonable, and you have kids who bring laughter and life to the area, but because it’s spread out, it’s still peaceful,” she said.
Parks and pools keep the kids busy in the summer and winter. Another perk is the lack of noise and congestion, but the location is still only 15 minutes away from daily needs and nearby entertainment.
“It’s ideal that you can really relax when you’re home but are still so close to all the conveniences that Rio Rancho offers,” Romero concluded.
