About Corrales, NM
According to its website, “The Village of Corrales is a small, treasured oasis located within a large, fast-growing metropolitan area. To cross the borders into Corrales is to step into another time and place where the stresses of twenty-first century life give way to the grace and pace of another era.” It would be hard to sum up the area any better than that.
Hi, I’m Tracy Venturi, and I’m one of the Realtors, Team Leaders, and Owners of Venturi Realty Group. I’ve lived in New Mexico since 1980, and I love it here. Maybe it’s my Minnesota hobby farm roots, but I really enjoy this community and everything it has to offer. We’re proud to call Corrales home, and we’d love for you to join us here. Its proximity to the river and farms, its rural nature, the trees and trails in the Bosque, and the phenomenal views from the hillside homes are just some of the things that make it so special to us, and to many other people who live here. Come take a look today.

Corrales strives to preserve its rural nature, right down to protecting the coyotes, providing crosswalk signs for horse riders, and offering the occasional hitching post at local businesses.
What other things make Corrales special? Vineyards, wineries, and apple orchards, the amazing views of the Sandia Mountains, and visiting the “Green Built” straw bale built Post Office where you’ll be greeted by name. But that’s only some of the great options around the area.
