This is by far the easiest unsolicited testimonial on quality workmanship and personal interactions that I have ever written. Please allow me to elaborate and start from the beginning. When my wife and I finally made the decision to relocate to Las Cruces, we also decided to build our first home (after seven previous career relocations, but never a “build”). We also immediately decided that Bob Kirkpatrick and Sky Vista would be our contractor. Together with his wife, Patty, they led us through the myriad of decisions we were forced to make. But first, they found us the nearly perfect lot with grand views to the Organ and Picacho Mountains and their accompanying ranges (we bought it sight unseen). And then the fun began. The Sky Vista team suggested quality vendors from whom we would eventually make our choices for the infrastructure of our home (plumbing, electrical, appliances, etc.). An architectural plan was decided with useful insights from both Bob and Patty, and off to the races we were.
Construction began without a hitch due to the groundwork bob had laid. The highest quality sub-contractors with whom Bob has worked for many years began their magic (and magic it was). With very few exceptions, Bob was at the construction site at least once, or sometimes two or three times, per day. With a very keen eye for perfection in all areas of construction, Bob led his team to the successful completion, and on schedule as was promised. And to boot, he patiently dealt with an anxious (and inexperienced) owner--me--who also visited the site often and too often thought with his mouth open. All this led to interactions between owners and builders that could not have been better.
And now, nine months after moving into our new home, we could not be happier. Bob's follow-up on a very few minor "hiccups" has been extraordinary. No questions asked, just solutions (and quickly). And I might parenthetically add that the warranty that Sky Vista gives was beyond our expectations --please compare theirs to other contractors you might be considering. Our hats off to Bob, Patty, and their team. Bravo!!

After a year in our new home, we are still delighted with all aspects of its design and construction. Bob and Patty Kirkpatrick have shown themselves not only to be quality builders, but good friends and we would recommend them to anyone contemplating the purchase of one of their homes.

Bob and his company built our house in 2000. After 16 years living in this beautiful house there is nothing I would change. It demonstrates Bob's reputation for outstanding quality is well deserved. Bob and Patty made this homebuilding experience a pleasant one. Their courteous manner and extensive knowledge gave us a comfortable feeling in a time that can be high stress. I have and will recommend them to anyone that wants a top quality home.
We really love our house. And it's a testimonial to you that just about all of the post-sale "unexpected Surprises" that have surfaced have been pleasant surprises versus problem surprises. It's a great pleasure to have guests admire the house as much as we do. We want to thank you not only for building a great house but for all the support you have given us after the sale, even in several areas totally unrelated to the house. You both are great!
Tom and Judy Smith
We are very pleased with the quality of the construction of our home. We very much enjoyed working with both of you during construction of the home. You did an execellent job in keeping us advised as to the progress and assisting us in selecting allowance items and other items which had to be selected. Even after the final design of the home, you paid attention to the details and made suggestions that improved the original design. We apperciated very much your thoughfulness in this regard.
