RIO RANCHO — Richmond American Homes of New Mexico is building a second community in Rio Rancho.
And it’s just the beginning.

“We will have additional communities in Rio Rancho late this year and early next year with more in the pipeline after that,” said David Newell, division president, New Mexico. “We are also actively working on projects in other municipalities as well with timelines TBD.”

Two new model homes in the latest RR project, called Seasons at Broadmoor Heights in Rio Rancho, debut the weekend of Sept. 25, the company said in an announcement.

Richmond is a subsidiary of M.D.C. Holdings, Inc. of Denver.

The model homes include the two-story Moonstone and single-story Sapphire models, which include open layouts, and owner’s suites with over-sized walk-in closets.

Prospective homebuyers and area agents can attend a Model Grand Opening Event at Seasons at Broadmoor Heights from 12 to 4 p.m. on Saturday, Sept. 24, and Sunday, Sept. 25.

In addition to complimentary snacks and model home tours, attendees can enter for a chance to win a prize drawing. Seasons at Broadmoor Heights is located 2394 Sandra Loop NE in Rio Rancho. For more information, or to RSVP for a model home tour, call 505.510.6600 or visit
