Sivage Thomas Homes in Northwest Albuquerque
One of two popular brick home builders in the area, the other is Opel Jenkins. Some subdivisions are exclusively one or the other; in some neighborhoods there are a mixture of both builders.
Both builders are well respected and the owners of the homes have been pleased with the homes they have bought.
If you are unsure which builder may have built the brick home in NW Albuquerque that you are interested in, one quick way to tell is by the windows. Sivage Thomas homes typically feature square or rectangular windows whereas Opel Jenkins homes almost always have arched windows on the front.
Another way to distinguish a Sivage home from an Opel is found in the kitchens. Opel Jenkins used distinctive oak cabinetry with large brass handles, usually with crown molding.
Both builders built elegant homes with great floorplans. The neighborhoods they built in have held up well over time. One of the reasons is pride of ownership.
Frequently, when I'm holding one of these homes open, neighbors who are looking for a larger house or looking to downsize will come by and rave about their quality of the home the currently own. They'll tell me they are determined to buy only an Opel Jenkins or only a Sivage Thomas home. More than anything else, I think this speaks to the quality of their homes (conversely, no one has ever told me they want another KB home or another Longford home).
Michael Sivage renterred our market in 2006 building homes as Sivage Homes. They are currently building in Rio Rancho.
