Since 1982, the Angel Fire Chamber of Commerce's mission of strengthening, promoting and serving its member businesses has positively benefited the entire region and local quality of life. The Angel Fire Chamber represents over 200 members who employ approximately 1,000 workers who account for millions of dollars in economic impact in Angel Fire and the surrounding areas of Northern New Mexico. This is accomplished without tax dollars, as the Angel Fire Chamber is supported strictly by membership revenues. Serving as a unified voice, the Chamber advocates for pro-business issues affecting member businesses on the local, state, and national levels.
We are proud to feature a news or one of our member businesses in the Angel Fire Chamber of Commerce's exclusive "I Know Jo" Campaign. This campaign started as a way for our Executive Director, Jo Mixon, to get to know the membership in 2011. It has, over the past years, become one of the favorite news/advertising events in Angel Fire. The catch phrase being, "I Know Jo, do you?" She visits a different Chamber member to learn about their business. She then shares information in a story she writes for our Weekly Chamber Monday Memo e-Blast.
This e-Blast is sent out to thousands of people on our mailing list. She also posts the story on our Face Book page.i
John R. Sutton General Building Contractors, Inc. says,
" I Know Jo, do you?"
Reputable, that's my word for John R. Sutton, General Building Contractor, Inc. John is a third generation building contractor who strives for excellence in his work. In 1985, he went to work full time in the family business with his Dad, Richard. Seven years later, his sister Bonnie, Office Executor, became a part of their team. Since then Richard has retired. John and Bonnie continue to run the business and the Sutton legacy lives on.
They moved to Angel Fire in 1978. John went to high school here, years later he met and married the love of his life here, he is raising his sons here and he intends to always own property here. Therefore a "great reputation" is extremely important to him! Knowing this, you'll get only quality work from John R. Sutton, General Building Contractor.
When I asked him what kept him doing this job he said, "We've been fortunate with the homes we've been able to build and the friends we've made throughout the years!" He says clients become friends for a lifetime. He believes in treating his friends with respect. He and Bonnie customize each home for the individual client. They even provide a fun perk for their clients, most of whom live out of state. On the Sutton Construction webpage, they have set up a client log-in area. Each client receives their own page. John documents everything for them. From the clearing of the trees and the surveying of the land to the completion of the home when it's move-in ready, he takes photos. Lots and lots of photos. Then every Friday he uploads the photos for his clients so they can be a part of the process. They can follow every detail of what is happening on their home no matter where they may live.
John spoke about building quality. He wants his work to last for the long haul. He strives to provide homes that are low maintenance for his homeowners. Long lasting and energy efficient while working within the clients budgets...these things really matter to him.
Speaking toward the quality and attention to detail of his work, one of Sutton's houses won the Grand Hacienda Award in the Parade of Homes in 2013 and then another one won in 2014! This event, held every Labor Day week-end, showcases homes built or remodeled by area builders. It is sponsored by the Sangre de Cristo Homebuilders Association.
Although well known for their new homes they also do home additions, kitchen and bathroom remodels, deck extensions and more. For a look at their gallery of photos, courtesy of Jeff Cavan, or for more information, visit their website: www.suttonconstruction.com . And something I really like about them, they have been a member in good standing of the Angel Fire Chamber of Commerce for over twenty years!
When not working, John spends time with his family taking advantage of the full potential the Moreno Valley has to offer. They hike, they bike, they ski & snowboard and they are actively involved with the Angel Fire community.
If it's quality, dependability and awesome design you want, don't hesitate to give John Sutton a call at 575-377-6570.
