Jennifer and her husband John fell in love with Santa Fe during frequent visits that began in the late ‘80s. Seventeen years ago they made a lifestyle choice for their young family and moved from the ‘Windy City’ of Chicago to make their home in the ‘Land of Enchantment.’
A native of Texas, Jennifer received a BBA from the University of Wisconsin-Madison. After graduating, she moved to Chicago to work for GE Capital’s Corporate Finance Group before joining a boutique investment management firm, PPM America, as Vice President of Private Placements. While working full-time, she earned an MBA from the University of Chicago. When she and her husband received the exciting news that their second child was on the way, Jennifer retired and became a full-time parent. It was during this time she learned the art of patience!
Over the next decade, she turned her new-found love of nesting into an opportunity to create value in real estate through various purchases and extensive remodels. Then in 2011, when others were getting out of the business after a significant market correction, Jennifer decided it was the right time to combine her passion for homes with her professional skill set and she became a licensed Realtor. It was an ideal fit and she has never looked back.
With a focus on providing top notch service and knowledge, her success has been accomplished by leveraging analytical and negotiation skills with patience and perseverance.
For Jennifer, it is truly an honor to assist people with this process. She finds fulfillment and joy in knowing that she is helping her clients make the best possible decisions.
A native of Erie, Pennsylvania, Sara earned a BA in Journalism and Mass Communication, with a minor in Visual Art from St. Bonaventure University in upstate New York. After working in advertising, news (print, television, and radio), she relocated to Nashville, where she worked in music publishing and at record labels on the famous Music Row for a decade.
Sara and her husband Colin, a native of Albuquerque, moved to Santa Fe in 2008, and she immersed herself in the vibrant theatre, art, dance and design offerings here. In 2014, inspired by the art, architecture, culture and rich history of New Mexico, Sara found that real estate was a natural fit for her, and she's enjoyed working in the industry ever since.
Combining a strong work ethic with an appreciation for aesthetic beauty and open communication, Sara prides herself on finding homes that make buyers feel inspired and at ease. She strives to help sellers put their best foot forward and maximize the inherent beauty of each home. For her, New Mexico is truly the "Land of Enchantment."
Sara is pleased to partner with Jennifer Tomes, whose impressive business and negotiation skills are second-to-none. Together they work to elevate the home selling and buying experience with industry knowledge and top-tier service with a focus on fostering an ongoing dialogue with each and every client.
