Because of my love for rural life and growing up with horses, I specialize in finding unique Santa Fe homes on land for people seeking rural homes for sale in and around Santa Fe, New Mexico, including properties off-the-grid, equestrian properties and ranches.  A Turquoise Trail resident, I am active in the Turquoise Trail community and specialize in Santa Fe homes on land, land sales around Santa Fe, and homes for sale along the Turquoise Trail.  I have been involved in the representation of the Galisteo Basin Preserve, a public-private land conservation project.  I work to find the perfect match for my clients from Galisteo to Pecos.  Buying a rural home requires the special expertise I have in understanding wells, easements, County Land Use, septic regulations and other issues related to homes on acreage with which not all Realtors are familiar.

I am a leading individual agent for home and land sales in the Turquoise Trail area.  A founding member of Madrid Cultural Projects, Inc., I have been involved in historic preservation activities in the area, including the preservation and renovation of the Oscar Huber Memorial Ballpark in Madrid, NM, which was completed in 2011.  I have also participated in grant development for projects of the Turquoise Trail Association in support of the Turquoise Trail National Scenic Byway.

A New Mexico resident since 1989, I hold a Masters Degree in Social Work Administration and Planning from the University of Texas at Austin and a Bachelor of Art in Journalism from Colorado State University.  I have been a licensed Realtor in New Mexico for over 15 years.   I have served in Senior Management positions throughout New Mexico with a focus on affordable housing development.  I am the former Homeownership Director of the New Mexico  Mortgage Finance Authority, responsible for the First-Time Home Buyers program throughout New Mexico.
