Consequently, I have a keen knowledge of the Albuquerque metro market and the local "know-how" to help you make the best possible decisions.
My extensive background in building, design and home staging help me better serve my clients on their home purchase or sale. I use my experience to see all of the possibilities.

I’m married and the mother of two adult children, John and James. I’m an Albuquerque native in love with the culture, recreational and social opportunities provided here.
In my spare time I do hot yoga, spend time on the golf course with my husband, and spend as much time with my boys as possible (one lives in Denver). I enjoy traveling, and adore my two small rescue dogs.
The SP Team Mission Statement
Most of us look at sales backward. We may see it as convincing people to do something that they don’t want to do. But it isn’t; it’s about learning what people do, what to do, and helping them do that. Or, we may think it’s about taking advantage of others- while in fact, it’s about giving other people more advantage.
But the biggest inversion of all, the greatest upside-down misconception about sales, is that it is an effort to get something from others. The truth is that sales at its best – that is, at its most effective – is exactly the opposite: it is about giving.
Selling is giving: giving time, attention, counsel, education, empathy, and value. In fact, the word sell comes from the Old English word, sellan, which means “to give.”
What makes a great salesperson great at sales is that he or she is wholeheartedly interested in the other person. Genuinely great salespeople are not great because they have mastered “the close,” or because they give a dazzling presentation, or because they could shoot holes in any customer objection from fifty paces. They are great because they create a vast and spreading sphere of goodwill wherever they go. They enrich, enhance, and add value to people’s lives. They make people happier.
Remember, regardless of what your particular product or service is, people are drawn to your because of how you make them feel.
