We very much enjoyed working with Miles Melton in the building of our dream home. He actively listened and was very responsive to our wants and needs. From start to finish he was very patient with us. Building a new home “from scratch” was very stressful for us and Miles made us feel very comfortable. Utilizing New Vista Custom Homes has become a family affair for us. Miles also built my parent’s home and my sister’s home. We love our home and we have Miles to thank for that. We highly recommend New Vista Custom Homes to anyone wanting to build their own dream home.

My wife and I purchased an empty lot near "Old Town" in Albuquerque and went searching for a builder to make our retirement dream home a reality.

Fortunately, we found Miles Melton of Homes by New Vistas. Miles is an Designer as well as a builder with 30 plus years of experience in designing and building homes in greater Albuquerque. Miles took my vague conceptual ideas and designed our custom Pueblo Style home with oak floors, tall ceilings, spacious front and back porches, an infinity drain shower in the guest bathroom, gas kiva living room fire place and even installed sound proofing insulation in my stereo room. Miles provided a detailed quote and construction schedule and kept us updated in Houston by text and digital photos of the progress.

Other custom builders we looked at either did not have in-house architectural design expertise or only handled million dollar plus jobs. Miles came in ahead of schedule and under budget while adding unexpected details like custom shelving in the master bath to Spanish style niches in the bedroom and entry way door.

We were very happy with the final product and after two plus years in our home we have proof positive of the build quality. We highly recommend Homes by New Vistas to anyone interested in a custom home and continue to be impressed by the complements we get on our home every time we make a new friend in Albuquerque and invite them over to our dream house.

We wanted to let you know just how much we love our home, which you designed and built for us. We had always bought homes from commercial home builders, where we selected a pre-built home with the opportunity to select a few finishes and colors. When we decided to get a new home in New Mexico, New Vista Custom Homes came very highly recommended. I don’t know what we were expecting, but we were surprised. You sat down with us and just listened to all the things that we were thinking about in a new home. Just listened, then asked us questions. You laid out some possible designs based on that discussion, then let us work with them. It was sort of exhilarating to figure out things exactly the way we wanted them. We gave you a budget, then you figured out how to give us what we envisioned. One of the really exciting things was being able to pick out everything for the house from the floors to appliances to bathroom faucets to the carved posts outside our doors.

Once that was done, you kept us up on every aspect of the construction. We watched the foundation being poured, which is when it became very real for us. When we couldn’t visit the site, you sent us pictures of the daily progress and quickly answered all the questions we had on anything. We loved your idea of changing the study window ever so much to give us a breathtaking view of Albuquerque and the Sandia Mountains. At night, the city lights are stunning! When we walked through the completed house for the first time, we were breathless. Everything we thought about, was there, including the big master walk-in closet, the gorgeous master bath, and the much loved pantry. The bedroom fireplace is also high on the list of favorites. It was all simply perfect. Not only that, but you stayed right in our budget. There were no surprises, just our dream home come true.

When family members decided to move to New Mexico, they chose New Vista Custom Homes, too. We now have three of your homes in our family. They love their homes as every bit as much as we love ours. Thank you for everything from start to finish.
