santa fe real estate: Santa Fe Home Buyers: Are You Listening to Warren Buffett? - 04/21/12 07:45 AM

Santa Fe home buyers: Are you listening to Warren Buffett? During a recent appearance on CNBC in February 2012, Warren Buffett said he would buy up millions of U.S. homes if it were possible. Recently, in a Real Estate Today radio interview by Gill Grosse with Moe Veissi, the 2012 President of The National Association of Realtors®, Warren Buffett is quoted as saying: “If I had the capabilities, I’d buy 200,000 homes across this county.

Here is a weather quiz from Santa Fe. Why is there no snow in my driveway? What a difference weather can make on expectations, plans and real estate. Here is what happened. Yesterday, it began to snow in Santa Fe following a day of nearly 81 degrees. It was a very unexpected wet heavy snow. It was still snowing at 10 PM last night when I brushed the snow off my about to be lilac blossoms to save their delicate branches. I woke up early this morning to clear my car and driveway for another real estate adventure. To my surprise, … (6 comments)

A flower is a flower is a flower. And this tulip blooming in Santa Fe, New Mexico is one of the many examples of visual evidence spring is here. Many of us are still wondering what happened to winter in northern New Mexico. All of a sudden, it is like an alarm went off and flowers started popping up nearly overnight. Mother Nature is making herself known all over Santa Fe now. This tulip is one of many blooming at our Santa Fe Properties office. For me, it is yet another sign of the positive changes in our local real … (7 comments)

santa fe real estate: iPAD March Madness... Month - 03/15/12 01:32 PM
In a few weeks, I will be moving from my iPad otherwise know as original and revolutionary to the iPad otherwise know as resolutionary and off the charts. Why? I discovered with a little bit of marketing imagination it has quickly become our out-of-the-box marketing tool. I am amazed at what happens when I stand in line at Trader Joe’s (usually not long) or if we have the iPad open on the table at lunch. Human are curious, especially those in Santa Fe. They stop to ask if they can see it! I’ve discovered we are the closest thing to being … (6 comments)

What is your password lifestyle?Are you safe or sorry? Smart passwords keep us safe from becoming extinct online. Did you know that “password” is not a smart password? Nor is “abc123” or “123456” or anything as simple as a perhaps a dinosaur would think was cool. In fact, “Iloveyou” and “monkey” and “superman” came up on the most hacked sites using these not so clever passwords in 2011. If you want to make sure your passwords did not make the list of the 2011 top worse passwords, see this recent report from SplashData. We all just lost an hour with daylight … (9 comments)

santa fe real estate: Santa Fe Snow Painting: Part 2 - 03/11/12 04:27 AM
 

Being behind the camera whether it is a smart phone, iPad or digital camera is often where I begin my day. My daylight savings time day began with another opportunity to see a new Santa Fe snow painting. Lately, our winter has been arriving in the dark and leaving us with snow painting surprises in the morning. This tree caught me eye because of the happy tweeting bird sounds from within her snow covered branches. And of course, the moment before I clicked the shutter, they flew off leaving this glorious snow painted pinon (the name for our Santa … (7 comments)

santa fe real estate: There Is More To Looking Up...In Santa Fe! - 03/05/12 12:41 PM

 
There is more to looking up in Santa Fe. There is also more to looking up than staying positive. Sometimes it is all about just looking up to see what you will see next. Frequently, I see birds. Rarely do I see tall buildings given my 402 year old community is Santa Fe, New Mexico. Tall buildings have never been the rage here! I usually always see a blue sky and most of the time clouds when I tilt my head upward. But today, I saw this wooden horse looking back and down at me. I could not resist passing … (6 comments)

This happened on Friday night at the end of another day in the trenches of Santa Fe real estate working with savvy investment buyers. After looking at 3 unique investment condominiums near our historic Santa Fe Plaza, we decided it was best to recap the numbers in the lounge at the Loretto Inn and Spa. The warm fire in the lounge was a perfect solution to the unexpected arrival of the winter chill we experienced all day. Now fast forward to a scene from our everyday digital world where we converse with our iphones and droids and iPads passed around showing … (7 comments)

santa fe real estate: The Week That Was... Off The Map - 02/27/12 09:13 PM
The “week that was” just happened to me this week or perhaps it was last week. In any event it happened. It began by waking up in dark before sunrise in Santa Fe and turning on one of my ubiquitous screens to accompany my first moments of being awake. I confess, it all began last Monday when I went to my online office here on Activerain and then my phone rang. The call was the beginning of how real estate offline kept me away from real estate online. There is something to be said about how we balance ourselves online and … (13 comments)
