Taking A Vacation In Santa Fe... Everyday

Santa Fe Blue Sky

This is an entry for thePositive Attitude for the Weary Soul Group Contest! | Fun in the Sun While the Business Still Runs!Join in on the Challenge!

The reason I migrated to Santa Fe, New Mexico nearly twenty years ago was because I followed my vacation. Prior to then, I had been visiting Santa Fe several times a year for a mental and physical break from my work behind the camera on location creating advertising campaigns for global companies and living on Capitol Hill in Washington DC. I discovered I wanted to feel the same way I felt in Santa Fe ALL the time. The best want to make that happen was to move here.

My lifestyle change was all about moving to my vacation destination. Santa Fe has nearly 365 days of sunshine, extraordinary clean air to breathe and a community rich in 402 years of history, art and culture. In some ways, I am on vacation here everyday.

Of course, when you add working in this new landscape of real estate to anyone’s life, it is imperative to take a break to bring balance to what else is important in your life. Fortunately and unfortunately, technology has given us both the tools to be remote (present but not present) and at the same time makes us tethered to the demands of customers and clients. We have to learn to make choices. Here is how I practice a more balancing life in practicing real estate in Santa Fe:

  • I use new technologies such as iphone and ipad, social networking and blogging to be free of a stationary screen on a desktop;
  • I partner with an experienced Realtor who has a positive attitude on life in spite of real estate’s bizarre experiences, loves to laugh and let go and demands we eat lunch no matter what every day;
  • I focus my work life by helping customers who are decisive, positive, respectful and happy, in other words, I select for positive business relationships online and offline;
  • I take a daily “imagination break” every day to do something for the first time, such as discovering yet another new way home, to one of our listings or anywhere I'm going; 
  • I spend an hour a day making images even if it is still dark outside or inside.

I rarely ever leave Santa Fe or New Mexico now. Family and friends will visit. Why? Because I live in Santa Fe. In between, I have fun in the sun(shine) everyday and thanks to these amazing communicative technology tools, I could be sitting under a tree looking up at the endless blue sky and talking or writing to you. Thank you for reading. If you need a “vacation in the sun” in any of our four seasons put Santa Fe on your destination map.

Who knows you might just end up living here too.

Good morning Emily. What a wonderful thing you did: you followed your dream. It doesn't get better than that. I am doing that too but I do travel and when I do, I absolutely dis-connect. I work really hard, but when I go on holiday, I don't want to know.

Santa Fe is very high on my places to visit list! I also get to live in an area where I rarely want to leave - feel very fortunate. Have a great weekend.

Ty, looking forward to seeing you here someday soon!

Shelia, I am too much a people person to dis-connect completely. Ulla and I are virtual and remote and we love Santa Fe and what we do to much to be 100% gone. We focus on positive business relationships and our clients understand we eat, sleep, spend time with our partners and families... in other words have lives too.

Fernando, just do it!

Kathy, we agree!

Anna, it is a vacation every day. Next time you are passing through call me a few hours before you hit the city line. I was sorry to miss you last time.

Laura, your avatar says "live your vacation" where you live and work too!

George, still waiting. If I got here from CT (first visit was in 1968!) you can too in this century. Still hope to meet you in person someday.

Emily- remember I asked you about Jeanne?  Well she ended up in Santa Fe just like you.  She went on vacation there with a friend and when she returned all she could talk about was Santa Fe.  She very shortly sold everything and moved out there and loved it.

Kathy, I remember. There is something about Santa Fe that can not be found anywhere else. Unfortunately, I can not put it in a bottle and sell it. The good news I can help others relocate here or invest in our real estate market.
