Nashville born with New Mexico sensibilities, Amelia combines Southern charm and hospitality with a deep understanding of Santa Fe, where her family has been a part of the community for decades. Her love for the Santa Fe community has made her knowledgeable in all the different types of neighborhoods and real estate offerings, from an ancient little adobe in the heart of town to a multi-acre modern with vistas from every window.
Amelia studied public health at the graduate level at the University of North Texas, where she also utilized her skills in public health, public policy, politics, and volunteerism in her community. Following these efforts, she chose to focus her skills in the commercial arena, where she moved around the United States with one of the country’s biggest real estate developers. Not only did this provide the opportunity for learning the industry from different regions, but she was able to volunteer around the country and have a positive impact in multiple communities.
Through these experiences, Amelia fell in love with helping people find their perfect home and developed real-world experience in real estate development, property management, community organizing, land use, and construction management. Though satisfied and challenged professionally, Amelia longed for a return to family and her beloved Santa Fe, where she has launched an exciting and fulfilling partnership with Barker Realty.
Whether hiking with her husband and two pups on Tierra Trails, rafting the Rio Grande, or camping in one of the many state and national parks with her large Santa Fe family, Amelia is an outdoors sort of girl. Besides her continuous restoration project on her own old adobe home and a quaint bungalow in Wyoming, she also manages a continuous restoration project on a tiny medieval house in a small town in Southern Italy. She is one of those people with vision, who can look at a property, no matter how daunting, and say, “we can do this!” Amelia will use that same vision to help you find and achieve the home of your Santa Fe dreams.
