“Mike has provided us with excellent advice and service regarding land and property in southern Santa Fe County. He is prompt, easy to work with, pragmatic and highly experienced. We strongly recommend!” – Dave Tedlock

“Mike sold a lot for us that we had listed for years with a series of agents with no success. He is the consummate professional. Thorough, experienced and very good at his job. Kept us well informed every step of the way and was super available for questions, etc. Highly recommend!” – Thom Brad

“Mike approached me about selling a lot I purchased over 10 years ago. He walked the land with me and was warm, interested, and interesting from the very beginning. He was always responsive and handled everything that needed doing very quickly.” – Bamudge

“We sold our lot through Mike, and within 3 weeks of listing it , there was an offer. Mike handled all the details (Listing info, photos, paperwork, description) and when it sold, he took care of everything, all we did was sign a few times at the title company. Everything went very smooth because of Mike. The title company he used was great and easy to deal with as well. We would recommend Mike to anyone selling, and would describe him as very personable, friendly and professional!!” – gbsantafe

“Mike Sanford is by far the best broker/realtor I have ever had the pleasure of working with. After regretfully working with a few other non-responsive realtors in the region I almost gave up. Then I met Mike and I was more confident in my real estate search than ever. For more than half a year Mike tirelessly searched for the perfect lot. We walked many large lots together and his professional insight was invaluable. I always felt like I had his full attention and I never felt pressured or rushed. Mike is friendly, personable, intuitive, organized, knowledgable, professional, and motivated. Mike Sanford is a major asset to the entire region and he is 100% laser focused on achieving his client’s real estate goals.” – atlascedar

“I could not be happier that my casual inquiry with Zillow routed me to Mike Sanford. My wife and I started this process with no information, no background, and only minimal idea what we were looking for. In the face of our total ignorance, Mike was patient and generous every step of the way. Once we began to understand our parameters, his knowledge of the area kicked into gear and he became exactly the sort of guide we needed–never overbearing, never stretching outside of our resources, and always listening. He even gave us the key to deciding between two potential properties. And once we were under contract, Mike was hyper-attentive to every question, of which we had dozens. Since we closed the deal from a distance, he drove out to the property to answer lingering questions, pulling up old documents to talk through our concerns about easements and rights. In short, he was thoughtful, attentive, and communicative in the best possible ways, and I heartily recommend him to anyone looking in the Santa Fe area. Thank you, Mike!” – kylebeachy

“Mike was so easy to work with, from our first call through closing. Not only did Mike go above and beyond, but he did so through the worst of the Covid-19 crisis. We were able to communicate remotely (from out of state), identify, sift and sort through desired properties, and narrow our choices. Mike was very open and available and even visited many of the remote properties we were interested in and acted as our eyes and ears in determining if we should go to the trouble of viewing the property. He understood our needs and desires and showed us some perfect matches. Mike was outstanding at understanding what we were trying to achieve and when our parameters changed daily and sometimes hourly, he rolled with the punches without concern. Mike was always responsive to texts, emails and phone calls and organized our visit so that we didn’t waste a minute of our limited time. The flow of communication from start to finish was uninterrupted. Mike knew about a wide search area and had helpful and detailed information and insights about regions, neighborhoods and surrounding pros and cons. He is the Best Realtor we’ve ever worked with and displayed excellent negotiation skills and ethics. It certainly helps when your Realtor is a good person who really cares, and it was clear that Mike is a Good Person who really cares. We couldn’t be happier and hope to work with him in the future. The Best New Mexico has to offer, in our opinion.” – newda1882

“I’m a practicing architect and have been associated with many real estate transactions; among these Mike has stood out as a real estate professional. Mike was my representative in an important land sale. He executed perfectly from start to finish. He is very knowledgeable, pleasant, alert, professional, efficient, detail oriented, trustworthy, and motivated. I would not hesitate to engage him as my representative for any future real estate transactions.” – jon5907

“Highly recommend Mike if you are considering the purchase of land or a home in the Santa Fe area. He is very professional, responsive, knowledgeable, and easy to work with. He helped me to find an ideal property without me having to make the trip to NM. Not only did he send me videos of all the candidate lots he met with a number of prospective builders I had and showed the lots to them. He also provided considerable help with the real estate contract and the negotiations with the seller. I wanted a geotechnical survey done on the property I ended up buying and Mike helped work all of the issues associated with that. Never any pressure and always there to help, educate, and advise.” – Michael Matusa

“Mike Sanford is incredible! I’m pleased to have had the privilege of working with such a pleasant, professional individual. Very unique, personable, and down to earth. My husband and I relocated to New Mexico to find the perfect plot of land to fulfill our homestead vision. Mike’s consistency, attentiveness and responsiveness to our interests and needs proved his absolute dependability. He’s quick to reply to texts, emails and/or calls. If ever we had questions or concerns, he would address and resolve them immediately. Throughout the span of over a year, with its highs and lows, Mikes resourcefulness, combined with his expertise, experience and natural intuitiveness for quality land kept us on the right path. He’s consistently positive, always considerate, patient, understanding and accommodating. Mike Sanford is highly recommended and we hope to work with him again in the future. Thank you Mike, for the clear passion you carry and for this amazing, unique experience! Wishing you success in all of your endeavors.” – Andrea Santiago

“I was hesitant at first to accept a Zillow provided realtor but Mike Sanford quickly impressed me with his professionalism and willingness to get out with us to look at some very rural properties. He was great from the start all the way through closing and in the end we ended up with the mountain cabin of our dreams at a very fair price. Mike Sanford is highly recommended, he will work hard for you!” – JamesOQ

“Mike worked through some complicated aspects in order to bring our deal to a successful close. Prompt, professional and thorough. Much appreciated and Highly recommended!” – Timothy Blevins

“Mike made my land purchase really easy. This was simply the best, most stress-free real estate transaction I’ve ever been part of. I much appreciate that Mike was always available to answer my questions and discuss my concerns. I’m feeling very fortunate to have had his expert help with the entire process.” – user1939493

“Mike helped us find a house in Santa Fe during Thanksgiving and xmas 2021, not an easy task. We highly recommend working with him. We lucked out that Zillow connected us when we first started looking. He has a calmness about him that we appreciated, but at the same time he was always quick to respond to all our questions and viewing requests. Bonus is that he has experience in construction. Extra bonus… he has some very stylish shoes. Give him a call, find your new home!” – Mr. Santino Nava

“Absolutely satisfied with Mike Sanford. Consistently went the extra mile. Very professional, very personable.” – S.R.

“Dealing with Mike Sanford of Barker Realty was indeed a pleasure. He was completely professional, proactive and not reactive, responsive to all of our needs and very patient. Negotiating real estate sales, especially from out of town, is never easy. Mike made our experience the exception. I would recommend him without reservation to anyone interested in buying or selling in the Santa Fe market. We will miss our beautiful Santa Fe lot, but Mike made the experience as good as it could possibly have been. Thanks, Mike!” – R. G.
