My first trip to the mountain west was in 1979 on a spring break ski trip during college. I was awestruck by New Mexico’s rugged beauty, rolling open vistas, rural villages, arts and theater communities, gentle climate, public lands, accepting culture and the great skiing. I was determined to move west from Wisconsin after college, and did just that. I have now spent over 30 years as a resident of the Taos area. I still marvel every day at how lucky I am to live in this special place. To me, this is the most beautiful place in the world. Life is simpler here.
I have been with Century 21 Success, LLC since starting in real estate in 2003. Our office was opened by my broker, Norris Romero in 1979, and remains in her family today. We recently joined the team at Century 21 Award LLC, owned by Phillip Romero, Norris’ nephew. Phillip owns 21 Century 21 offices in southern California. Our agents feel like family to me, we work together with a cooperative attitude to best serve our clients. I served for 6 years as a Director on the Board of the Taos County Association of Realtors. They awarded me the Realtor of the Year in 2016.
Our daughter was brought up in the Taos school system, a 2015 graduate of Taos High School. She attended the Taos Charter School, a public charter school where we volunteered relentlessly to support her education. In retrospect, I feel that volunteering at her school is the most important contribution I’ve made in this community. She worked hard, and was accepted at Vassar College. She earned a degree in Neuroscience there, awarded in 2019. She is now is working toward her PhD in Neurosciece at the University of Michigan. She hopes to research the neuroscience of addiction. My husband is a local attorney with a general civil law practice. We met at a Taos barn dance in 1996.
High quality and personal service are my goals in helping real state clients. I work closely to help find just the right property, and personally serve all the way through closing. Home sale and purchase transactions are frequently the largest financial transactions people make. My experience helps me navigate issues that come up, and are sometimes specific to New Mexico. I look forward to assisting with your New Mexico move, and wish you as much happiness here as I have found!
