I serve Sant Fe New Mexico and the surrounding area.

Santa Fe, “The City Different”, is the capital city of New Mexico, and the highest capital city in the U.S. At 7,199 feet in elevation, situated in the Sangre de Cristo foothills, the air is clear and crisp, and we enjoy an average of 283 beautiful days of sunshine in our brilliant blue skies. Santa Fe is also the oldest capital city in the U.S., and our streets are lined with Pueblo-style architecture and brimming with history. Founded in 1610 as the capital of the Spanish province of Nuevo Mexico of the Viceroyalty of New Spain, the original city center, the Plaza, is still a lively center of activity. Also known for our arts and cultural offerings, we are home to the Santa Fe Opera, the Desert Chorale, many choruses and instrumental groups, more than 100 fine art galleries, and many museums.

Santa Fe is also convenient to many outdoor adventures. With our own ski basin, we are a popular wintertime destination for skiing. The rest of the year, we have spectacular rafting, rock-climbing, hiking, kayaking – you name it. We have interesting driving trips, like the Turquoise Trail and the Jemez Mountain Trail. The historic Santa Fe Trail ended at the Santa Fe Plaza. We’re known for our huge stand of aspen in the Sangre de Cristos, which turn the very air golden in the fall. Our fall Fiesta draws large crowds, for the reverence of our history and for fun.

We are truly a “City Different”. Life is good here. The pace is slower. We’re more casual. It’s a great place to make a life.
