Lancor Blends Elegance
With Family Comfort

When David Gottlieb was a kid, he built forts and drew floor plans. “We have this footstool that David made when he was little that we still use,” says the builder’s wife and business partner, Aileen. “The legs, they’re feet.” She laughs while Gottlieb smiles somewhat bashfully, admitting, “That was in shop class.”

Today his sunburned visage testifies to the multitude of custom home-building projects currently in various stages of completion by the Gottliebs’ Lancor Enterprises, Inc. On any given day, one can find David and Aileen at a building site in hands-on roles from morning till night, from Rio Rancho, New Mexico, into Albuquerque. Lancor was a Gold Award winner in the Home Builders Association of Central New Mexico’s 2000 Homes of Enchantment Parade. This month, two of their homes are on display in the 2001 tour.

“I actually started out in real estate 10 years ago and was supervising home building projects. Ultimately I bought the company in 1999. From the very start, I worked in land—which is where the name of our company, Lancor, comes from—and I just progressed, from small homes to 5,000-square-foot and 2,500-square-foot homes,” he explains. Gottlieb quickly adds he’s also currently building a 1,300-square-foot home and will build any size home a client desires. Because he maintains a broker’s license, Gottlieb can offer home buyers a full-service package, from buying land to building the house.

David and Aileen Gottlieb of Lancor built their current residence, which was a Gold Award winner in the Home Builders Association of Central New Mexico’s 2000 Homes of Enchantment Parade. A lofty ceiling with exposed roof trusses soars over the home’s main living area and kitchen.
