Mission Statement
Meet Marie
After 20 years in banking, Marie Elizabeth Blea, Betty for short, began a second career at Homes by Marie.
...
As a custom home builder, Betty Blea has exhibited a keen sense of design and function, as well as business!
...
Homes by Marie - Betty Blea Homes by Marie specializes in new home construction, which not only gives Betty the opportunity to involve her clients, but the time to learn her client's lifestyles, aiding in the design of their dream home.
...

Imagine entering your new home built by Homes by Marie... a contemporary southwestern blend of grand open space and personal comforts unique to your lifestyle. Betty and her team of dedicated professionals are waiting to turn your dream home into a reality.
...
We did have pretty set ideas and Betty offered the pros and cons of those ideas and guided us in finding the perfect solutions. Betty knew the area we wanted to live in and helped us pick a place we are very happy with. To take advantage of the views in this mountainous landscape, we positioned the living space upstairs and the children's bedrooms, bath and playroom downstairs - with the laundry room nearby. Betty's understanding of the needs of a growing family made her suggestions even more useful. We really enjoyed working with Betty and her associate Breck.
...
Betty, her architect and all of the people that work with her took time to care about our home, and it really shows!
...
One of our primary reasons for selecting Homes by Marie was Betty Blea's obvious dedication to complete customer satisfaction.
...
We sensed that Betty would have the patience to work with our perfectionist tendencies, and she did.
...
Betty and Breck were always accessible and eager to help us turn our vision of a dream house into reality-and to do it within budget.
...
Betty and Breck do not leave you abandoned once you move in. They have always been available to tie up loose ends and finish the punch list. Allen and I enjoy our home-complete with big closet and steamer shower; but we will also continue to enjoy the wonderful friendships we've made with Betty and Breck along the way.

Su Casa Southwestern Homes

When Betty Blea, founder and owner of Homes by Marie, started out in the construction business in 1990, there were only a handful of local women running their own custom home businesses. Blea faced the tall order of being the only one in her family involved in the business. She credits loyal, hardworking subcontractors and vendors with helping her off to a great start. Domonic P.Perea is now the field superintendent and brings twenty years of building experience.
Not only did the former vice president of various banks who oversaw litigation, marketing, advertising, and bank branches prove the naysayers wrong, Blea's company is now synonymous with luxury and quality New Mexican- and Tuscan-style custom homes. Along with several custom home projects each year, Homes by Marie is also a commercial builder. Their latest commercial project, the exquisite 18,000 square foot Clubhouse in the Nature Point Subdivision, located in the East Mountains just minutes from Albuquerque, boasts a wellness center, large multi-purpose rooms with massive vigas and wood treatments, and a year-round heated indoor pool. Blea, who has a long history of community service, also works from time to time in collaboration with fellow builders to create communities and luxurious dwellings.

As an award-winning builder for nearly 20 years, Betty Blea has learned to combine complementary home styles for a unique look that's all her own.The builder, president of Homes by Marie, describes her model home at Rancho de Candelaria as a Southwestern and Tuscan blend with a few contemporary touches thrown in for good measure.
...
As a luxury home builder, Blea has found that many of her clients are downsizing from the larger homes and yards where they raised their families.While buyers may want a smaller home requiring less upkeep, however, they're not skimping on the amenities.The model at Rancho de Candelaria isn't exactly tiny at 2,727 square feet, but it does shine with upscale features ranging from granite countertops with unusual "raw" edges to massive square Douglas fir beams and a tongue-and-groove ceiling in the great room.The one-story home feels much larger than it really is - and that's no accident."This design does not waste space," said Blea, who managed to include a fourth bedroom in the one-story home.
...
Blea has built her business on upscale homes with tasteful amenities that blend Southwestern and Tuscan design styles.
...
"I think the bold colors bring warmth to a house," said Blea."It's cozier.A lot of people are afraid to do bold color on their own, but even the conservatives usually like it once they see it."Each residence in Rancho de Candelaria will be a custom home, and Blea expects prices to range from the high $600,000s to the mid-$800,000s.Home sizes will range from 2,300 to 3,500 square feet.Blea, who was in the banking business for 20 years before starting Homes by Marie in 1990, also incorporates many energy efficient features in her homes.Already building to Build Green New Mexico standards at the West Side development of La Cuentista, she has repeated many of the features in the model at Rancho de Candelaria.
