I’m LOVING the Eldorado house—our stuff seems to fit in the space well, and the atmosphere is just so relaxing. 🙂 Feel free to stop by anytime! Thank you so much for everything—you really read us well, and you were very available for us during the buying process. We were lucky to find you!

“We were working with an agent who canceled on us the day before we were to arrive in Santa Fe. While scrambling to find a new agent, we were lucky enough to find Lisa. It was a pleasure working with her. She was knowledgeable, extremely professional, and had a great sense of humor. She acted as our buyers agent and showed us houses in a wide variety of locations and price ranges, as she learned what kind of home we were looking for. She answered our frequent email and telephone questions promptly at all hours of the day and night, and lined up all kinds of useful recommendations for us about shopping, restaurants neighborhoods, etc. When we found our house (after just our second visit to town), she walked us through the process of buying a bank-owned property and generally made the process very easy by handling every detail. She submitted our offer very quickly and efficiently, and that turned out to be crucial in our being the successful bidder. We would recommend her highly to anyone looking to buy real estate in Santa Fe. (The only way we could give her a higher recommendation would be if she’d come to the house and help us clean!)” —Matt and Kathy Mathai, Annapolis, MD
“We were new to the Santa Fe area when we met Lisa and we didn’t know much about the city, much less the real estate market. It took us about a year after we met before we made the decision to build a home. During that time, she persevered in answering our questions, providing thorough information and she was simply a pleasure to work with. We definitely appreciate all the hard work and easy laughs she brings as our Realtor in Santa Fe…we wouldn’t have anyone else!” —Jim and Lynne Vanderhider, Houston, TX
“Lisa helped me find just the right house, Moreover, she made the process from start to finish smooth, fun and interesting. I was an out-of-state buyer so didn’t have much time for the search. Lisa was extremely well organized and, although she had other active clients, I had the sense that she was devoted to finding my house. And, within a week, we did. She anticipated snags in the process and had them addressed before I even knew about them. Overall, the experience with Lisa was excellent.” – Sondra Byrnes, Santa Fe, NM
“What did we appreciate about working with Lisa? She made me feel like I was her only client!” —Katherine Coleman, Brooklyn, NY
What Sellers Say:
“Thanks and major kudos to Lisa Smith the best realtor in Santa Fe, if not the world. We did exactly what she said to do. Everything. She is brilliant!! Think it’s a buyer’s market? Well, it’s not. It’s a seller’s heyday when Lisa is your realtor. 20 days on the market and our Eldorado house sold for full listing price. Full. Listing. Price. Have issues with your home? She’ll tell you what to do to get the best offer. The transaction was absolutely seamless, and we couldn’t be happier!” —Stefanie & Bob Kyser, Santa Fe, NM

We couldn’t hope for more from our listing agent!” – Daniel & Shannon Ratcliff, Austin, TX
“Working with Lisa Smith was the best choice we could have made in our home sale and purchase transactions.

“We have a large family and we were moving back to Europe. Lisa helped make the transition as painless as possible. We would highly recommend her! – Marjolijn and Matt Vandomselaar, The Netherlands
We are so grateful for all your help with selling our house! The whole process proved quite a challenge from so far away here in Germany with the extensive repair work & all the finishing touches that were necessary to get the house ready for sale. We could not have done it without you keeping an eye on everything & providing valuable advice at every stage. THANK YOU SO MUCH!!! You did a great job for us. – George and Melissa Albeck, Germany
Lisa is not only knowledgeable and professional, but also a great person to work with. We worked with Lisa to sell our property while we were out of state, which can often be a nightmare scenario; we needed a representative that could take on all the planning, preparation, oversight, staging, showing and closing all from afar.
Lisa immediately took the reigns and applied her experience, resources, and never-ending energy to work on our behalf to make this difficult task look effortless. Her command of the situation and attention to detail made all the difference in making the sale happen, and we could not be happier with the results. – Mike and Lisa Engeldinger, Seattle, WA
It is my pleasure to share comments on my experience working with Lisa Smith from Santa Fe Properties. If you’re thinking about listing your home and you’re not sure which agent to list with, I highly recommend Lisa. Having the right agent makes all the difference in the world. I have bought and sold a number of homes and Lisa has a level of excellence and a work ethic unlike any other agent I have worked with.
Not all situations are alike. You may need to sell quickly, you may want to get the highest price even if it takes a bit longer, you might want to do improvements to reduce sales time but aren’t sure what will matter. Trust Lisa. Lisa was patient, creative, supportive and determined. We worked the game plan together, and she gave good, experienced counsel along the way. Most importantly, we sold my home in a timely fashion.
Lisa was with me during each phase of the sales effort from beginning to end. Her effort was superior in developing prospects, pre-listing changes and staging, and holding open houses for potential clients and realtors. We even re-staged and re-photographed the entire house when it seemed like we needed a new strategy. Once the house sold, she was diligent in supporting me in every way. All of these tasks, whether business-related or interpersonal, were accomplished with a noticeable degree of competence, humility, integrity and grace. – Jacci Gruninger, Santa Fe, NM
