About Lisa

Sabine Andraud
Coldwell Banker Trails West
About Sabine

Whether you are in the market to buy or sell, you will find that I am a hard-working, supportive ally who can be relied upon. I was given Coldwell Banker Trails West Realty’s first ever “Bulldog” award as a result of my limitless persistence. I always dig right in to get the job done, and done well. Although I have received numerous prestigious honors and awards in the Real Estate field, the Bulldog award is the one I am most proud of, proving I can be serious about my business without taking myself too seriously. The framed picture of a bulldog now hangs in a prominent position in my office. I have been a Santa Fe resident for almost 30 years and prior to moving here, I lived in France where I attended college and then worked at a property management company. I have an in-depth knowledge of what the Land of Enchantment has to offer; having raised my now 22-year-old daughter, Arryel, on my own, I am intimately familiar with the benefits and excitement of family life in Santa Fe. People say I am friendly and down-to-earth, a real people person. I have made friends for life in this business. For me, each transaction is just the beginning of a long-term relationship. I take special pride in the bond I share with my clientele. That bond begins with a foundation of honesty and trust that lasts well beyond the closing of the deal. I am also fluent in French and Spanish. The love of my life is my daughter but my passion is Real Estate and I am committed to assisting my clients, customers, and friends in all of their Real Estate needs.

Darlene Streit
Sothebys International Realty
About Darlene

Some people think it doesn't make much difference who your real estate broker is. Most people, however, choose to improve their chances of finding the home they really want by choosing Darlene Streit, Santa Fe's #1 broker. Finding and buying a home is a process that should begin with the broker really hearing what you want. The first step in finding the right home is listening, not looking. Location, style, amenities, access and of course price are obvious factors. But it's the little things that really count. Darlene listens before she helps you look, so that you see homes that fit your needs. Perhaps a gourmet kitchen with the latest appliances is part of your dream. Maybe you need space for a home office, or a fenced yard that will accommodate your dog, or a room for sewing or yoga. You might prefer living near the center of town, or in a more rural setting. Home dreams can come true when you have the right real estate broker. Darlene understands that buying a home is more than just purchasing housing. It's an expression of who you are and how you wish to live in the community. She knows that her job is to find the home that matches your wants and needs; a home that is not just adequate, but special for and to you. Darlene brings to the task her degrees in economics and psychology, and almost three decades of real estate experience in the Santa Fe market. Dreams are fun, but there is a practical side to the transaction, too. Buying a home is a big commitment. It is usually the largest single financial investment in a person's lifetime. There are a lot of details and a pile of paperwork involved, and they all have to be correctly managed and executed. Doing it well requires a unique combination of skills. That's why it's important for you to know that real estate isn't a part-time hobby or a side job for Darlene Streit. It is a full-time effort, supported by her own dedicated team of real estate transaction professionals whose combination of knowledge and experience is part of the advantage you have as a Darlene Streit buyer. With so much at stake, do you want anything less than a broker who is a careful listener and who has a proven track record, detailed knowledge of the marketplace, a full support team, and the unquestioned ability to make things happen? Choose to take advantage of The Buyer's Advantage by choosing Darlene Streit as the broker who will help you find your Santa Fe home.

What should you look for when interviewing a real estate agent in Santa Fe?
When you sell a house, your real estate agent becomes your business partner, financial advisor, and emotional support system. It’s crucial to partner with someone you trust, so make sure you’re looking for an agent who can answer all of your questions with confidence during the interview. During this process, you want to get to know the agent’s business and find out how well they know the area. You’re listening for things that signal experience, expertise in your community, and workload. Selling a home takes an enormous amount of work, so you need an agent who’s got a plan for prep, pricing, and marketing and who is ready to roll up their sleeves to get the job done.

When is the right time to hire a real estate agent in Santa Fe?
The best window to contact an agent to sell your home is anywhere from three to six months in advance of your list date. When you start the search for an agent several months before hitting the market, there’s plenty of time to find the best agent, make key renovations, and market your home effectively, all of which are essential steps in selling your home for a great price. You can also hire an agent based on the best time to sell in Santa Fe to take advantage of seasonal and cyclical trends in the market. The right time to hire a real estate agent depends on the temperature of the housing market. For example, the best time to sell in Santa Fe is in May. And since it takes around 3 months to close on a home, you should list in February. We recommend that you hire a real estate agent as soon as you're thinking of selling your home. Generally speaking, that's anywhere from 3 to 6 months prior to your desired move date.
