Buyer Reviews

“Lisa was incredibly helpful both during my search for a new home and throughout the transaction. She is very knowledgeable about the Santa Fe real estate market, and a very competent realtor who guided me through every step. I highly recommend her!” - Jenny Crysler


“Both transactions smooth as silk. Flawless. Positive. Always responsive and communicated every step of the process. Smart, fun, understands real life.” - Julie Kalan


“Lisa is competent and professional. She knows her facts or will quickly find out. She is in close communication with her clients -always in a pleasant & no nonsense way. We felt she listened, found out what we were looking for & delivered, going out of her way to provide a very satisfactory end to  our search!! Very pleased!” - Suzanne and Art Wolinsky


“Lisa Smith (Santa Fe Properties) was extremely helpful throughout the escrow period. She sent me an e-mail of the property on October 29th. By November 18th, I took possession! A mere three weeks. She always had the proper documents sent to me promptly via Docu Sign. Lisa knows all of Santa  Fe's best contractors, title agencies, utilities, etc. I am new to the area, and Lisa guided me in the right direction whenever I needed assistance during the buying process. It was the most pain free escrow I have ever experienced. I would highly recommend Lisa Smith to my friends and associates who are looking to buy or sell real estate.” – Peter Sitz


“Lisa performed her magic finding us the perfect property in Eldorado in very short order. Not only did she seem to know every property in the community, she had years of experience working with out-of-town buyers. Lisa also was very thorough in walking us through the buying process, providing a  road map and calendar with all the information we needed to complete the purchase. I would recommend her without any reservation, especially to out-of-towners. Thank you Lisa!” - Jack and Paula Decker


“Lisa was able to find a house that met virtually all of our requirements, in the price range we could afford (a very difficult task at best!). She is honest and straightforward, and very responsive. She listened to what we wanted to make recommendations to us, but also was patient in showing us  houses that we wanted to see. She has great contacts for getting everything done very fast. I highly recommend her!” – Kelly Smith


“We've worked with Lisa on both the purchase of our Santa Fe home and then the sale 6 years later. She is very personable, direct and provides good advice. In preparing our home for sale, she recommended a number of improvements and repairs for both curb appeal and to remove any objections. We  followed her suggestions, and we had an offer within days of putting our house on the market (that resulted in a sale). I realize that's not the only factor contributing to a quick sale, but without that input, there's a good chance the process would have taken much longer.” – Neal and Lisa Rosendorf 


“Lisa knows the market, and helped us find the perfect house. Here is my haiku dedicated to her: Oh! My heart on restless wings yearns for more square feet. Now that house is mine.” – Stefanie L. Kyser


“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 a year 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


“We were impressed with her efficiency and professionalism. It was not just what she did, but how she did it that left us feeling secure and that we were in very good hands. We have purchased and sold many houses over the years and have never been treated so well by any Realtor.” – Sarah and Al Stuart


“Purchasing a second home from another state could have been very difficult. Lisa made sure everything was taken care of, even the smallest detail. Through her dedicated approach to her clients, Lisa helped us find our dream home. Never tiring of the emails, countless questions, and many showings, Lisa became our friend and celebrated in our journey. We highly recommend Lisa as one of the most outstanding real estate professionals in New Mexico.“ – Lori Sheltman and Zina Galona


“We are here! Moved this weekend, unpacked most of our stuff today. 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! Although... How can you go wrong with a Smith? ;) – Jennifer Smith and Matt Sherer


“Lisa was the perfect realtor for us when we began the process of finding a home to relocate to in Santa Fe. She quickly understood our needs and was patient, insightful and experienced -- a real pro. She's also great company and wonderful lady, which was a huge bonus, considering the many hours we spent together.  Lisa helped us find the exact house we wanted, and she continues to be our go-to resource for home maintenance recommendations. She came to us as a realtor, and has stayed on as a friend." - Kipp and Linda Bentley


"We have used Lisa for several real estate transactions, both selling and buying, and keep coming back because we trust in her ability to do an excellent job. Lisa keeps up to date with market conditions and will provide intelligent guidance and advice based on facts. This approach spells success. She is honest and ethical and readily available throughout your real estate transaction. I wouldn't think of using anyone else!" - Laura Zirulnik and Josie Gallegos


"We met Lisa at the open house for our new home, and although we had been looking for a couple of months, we weren't working with an agent. As soon as we started talking, it was clear that she was the right agent for us, whether or not we ended up with the home she was showing at the time. She made it all happen, and effortlessly guided us through the process (we had been out of the US for 10 years), even supplying a calendar with our specific deadlines/dates filled in! She worked seamlessly with our lender and title company, and kept us informed all along the way. A great home-purchasing experience, and really pleasant to spend time with too." - Tracy Spallina


"My wife and I met Lisa while in Santa Fe recently looking for a property. We are from the East Coast and had limited time. Lisa was great she met us on very short notice, came with all the information in a well presented package. She made us feel comfortable right away. We bought the property with Lisa guiding us through the process. We were thankful we met Lisa she has a great knowledge of the area and her highly professional work ethic is top notch. Thanks to Lisa we were able to take the first step to our dream to live in Santa Fe. if you are looking for real estate in Santa Fe you really need to meet with Lisa." - Dick & Gini Griffith
