Located in the highlands of Sandoval County, in the northwest corner of the Albuquerque metro area, the master planned community of Rio Rancho offers residents country club living at affordable prices. Real estate options consist of single-family homes, condominiums, townhouses, horse properties and estate properties.
The community is relatively new with development of the area beginning in the late 1970s. More recently it has experienced rapid growth due to an influx of new firms that have brought considerable employment opportunities to the area, including Intel Corporation, Gateway 2000, Sprint, Victoria's Secret, and others. Today the city is home to some 62,000 residents.
The centerpiece of the community is the Rio Rancho Country Club that offers extensive facilities including a superb golf course, tennis courts clubhouse and swimming pool. The Chamisa Hills Golf Course is a 27-hole, newly redesigned course and clubhouse. Nearby Cottonwood Mall is just four minutes away and is one of the largest shopping centers in the Southwest.
Perched atop the West Mesa, Rio Rancho residents are treated to nightly majestic views of the city, the Sandia Mountains, the Manzano Mountains and Rio Grande valley. They also enjoy high quality schools, a low crime rate, optimal recreational opportunities and easy access to Albuquerque, Santa Fe, Belen and other cities.
