Las Cruces NM Real Estate, Home Sales


The experience a visitor to Las Cruces, New Mexico feels is akin to opening a beautifully wrapped gift, layer by layer.  Approaching the city from the east, one sees and feels the vastness of the beautiful White Sands National Monument. Proceeding westward, the Organ Mountains loom, purple and jagged against a setting sun. Then up over the San Augustin Pass with jaw-dropping views for endless miles in all directions before descending to the Rio Grande Valley and historic Las Cruces.  Or, approach the city from the west just as dusk falls, and strung along the fertile river and up from the valley are thousands of lights like a long string of glittering beads backed by the Organ Mountains.  Approached from any direction, Las Cruces is an awe-inspiring city, and one with a long past and a brilliant future.
