Mission Statement I try to enthusiastically represent my clients and help them through the maze known as The Great Real Estate Adventure - lenders, appraisers, city or county officials, surveyors, neighbors, mothers-in-law (you name it) - in order to successfully close a transactions. Why I Love Santa Fe My whole family loves the "feel" of Santa Fe... part small town, part way of life so rooted in the past that it casts its warm shadow on the present and future, and part romance that involves, weather, seasons and the vagaries of your own heart. Best Advice to Clients Don't be afraid to make a major change in your life. For so many of my clients and friends, coming to Santa Fe meant a gamble of some kind. For most, it was a gamble that paid off.
