santa fe lifestyle: Santa Fe Real Estate: FAQ On Talking Santa Fe - 06/06/12 11:38 AM

What on earth is "talking" Santa Fe? This is a very short list of many of the main words that today make up our local lingo which is sometimes called "talking" Santa Fe. Many of them were words I began to learn when I first passed through Santa Fe in 1968 and then finally settled here in the early 1990’s. Others are the ones “you” frequently ask me about all the time when we begin the process of helping you relocate to Santa Fe to make your lifestyle change.

The other day someone left me a voice message asking me to find them a slice of heaven in Santa Fe. And like some home buyers today, they forgot to tell me their name or really anything else.

Yet, their request intrigued me to think about all the possibilities and … (5 comments)

Think Big! Dream! Then take the time it takes to make a difference in how you sell real estate. There is no reason to bend to the economy when you can engage your imagination and make a difference to sell real estate. The housing market crash did change the landscape of real estate.

santa fe lifestyle: My Cat Has An MBA! - 05/06/11 03:05 PM

Every now and then, the behavior of one of my four on the floors registers off the scale. Before the sun arrived in Santa Fe, my cat quietly moved into a stealth position next to the sleeping pup for what I believed would be another opportunity for a cat nap. I sat quietly on the sofa with one eye waiting for the screen to appear and other on them. It looked like no one was ready to move or demand breakfast.
