“Taos has a way of infusing you with confidence and that problems of life are just transitory and pretty easy to solve. However, this doesn't really translate to selling your house. But there is a solution: Lisa Davis, the uber professional and excellent realtor. My wife and I happily sold our Taos home by placing it with Lisa. Oh boy, there are a lot of issues and regulations on sales these days such as septic and title company technicalities. She navigated everything seamlessly and successfully and in record time ! Do yourself a huge favor, let Lisa deal with the whole enchilada while you hoist a cold one and avoid the angst of it all. ”

Jim Harrigan and Penelope Douglas, Sausalito, CA



“We were looking for the perfect town to settle in, and hadn't even considered Taos, thinking the cost of housing there would be prohibitive. We decided to take our chances though, after being referred to Lisa Davis, who proved to live up to her reputation as one of the best of the best realtors in the area. She found us an excellent house within a month that was in our price range, and helped us every step of the way to closing with professional and attentive service. We found her going the extra mile for us more than once. And as an added bonus, she is a charming and delightful person as well.”

Dean Caldwell and Dana Buckner, Taos, NM



“Lisa is a breath of fresh air. She is professional, honest and a great communicator. She did a superb job marketing and presenting our home.To our surprise, we had a very quick sale. She followed through on everything she promised and stayed on top of the closing process to ensure a smooth transition. We recommend Lisa most highly.”

Paul and Sandra LeBrun, Fort Collins, CO



“We are very pleased with the time and effort that Lisa Davis put into helping us find a great house. She was patient, well-informed and super organized. And a pleasure to work with. We offer our highest recommendation.”

JR, Taos NM



“The level of professionalism and personal commitment Lisa brings to the table is truly impressive.  Despite a challenging market, she sold my home (at my price) in a fraction of the Average Days on Market for the area.  I’m convinced her keen advice and hard work were integral for us selling quickly and profitably.  On top of that, she’s warm and easy to work with; a genuinely good person!  When I buy or sell property, she’s one of the first people I call.”

Marcos Trujillo, Taos NM



“...I just wanted to take a moment to thank you and the Prudential team for the excellent work you did in selling my home in such a timely and enjoyable manner. Wow, that was fast...particularly in this volatile economic climate! It was truly a pleasure to go through the listing process with someone who is so exceptionally professional, knowledgeable, and personable. I really appreciate your diligence, sensitivity, positive approach, and unflagging good humor. First rate! Five Stars!”

Cynthia Ewers, Dixon NM



“Many, many thanks for your steadfast service - for your kindness and ability to guide us through this process during a difficult economic time. You are the BEST!”

Steve and Jackie Mahan, Mexico



“You were integral to my journey! My gratitude is BIG. You are everything I was counting on as a Realtor, AND a wonderful person.”

Nia White - Taos, NM



“Lisa Davis would probably be excellent at any job, but lucky for you if you’re looking for a house in Taos, her job is to help you. She certainly helped us. She’s competent, warm and committed to the Taos community, where she seems to know everyone. Despite her success and numerous clients, we always felt as though we were the only ones on her schedule. She was available evenings and weekends - whenever we wanted to look at a house, and after we made a successful offer, whenever we had a question about the process. She introduced us to the neighborhood we ultimately chose. She held our hands through the offer process and several complications that arose prior to closing. And she continues to be a source of contacts and advice as we settle into our perfect Taos house. Our dog loves her too. Thank you Lisa. Your dedication and skills are an inspiration.”

LouAnn Gerken and Patrick Neher - Taos and Tucson



“Over the last 18 years, I have bought and sold four homes, but not until I worked with Lisa Davis did I have an easy, smooth experience. Lisa is fantastic. Her dedication, enthusiasm and love for her work is REAL! I couldn’t have been more delighted! Thank you Lisa!”

Karen Vermillion - Taos, NM



“Selling my house in a tough market was challenge enough... add to that a quirky, weird property and my emotional attachment and turmoil at the thought of selling the only home I've ever owned, and you've got a potential stew of problems! Lisa Davis of Prudential Taos Realty gently took me by the hand and led me through the fire, made me feel confident and comfortable with an unfamiliar process, and sold my house quickly and easily. Lisa has deep, thoughtful knowledge of the local market and the greater world of real-estate as a whole, and she brought that profound professionalism to bear on my behalf and made the entire transaction a delight. I look forward to working with her again any time!”

R.E.C. Thompson - Taos, NM



“While visiting for the three day Solar Music Festival, my husband and I fell in love with everything about Taos. We picked up a local real estate magazine, opened it, and chose someone from the Prudential Taos page. As fate would have it, it was Lisa Davis. We left her a message that we would be leaving in two days and asked her to find us a casita within walking distance to the Taos Plaza. Lisa met us on Monday morning with a list of properties and off we went. She was amazing to work with, very knowledgeable about the area, and reads her clients well. By Tuesday we were making an offer on a beautiful property and we moved in a few weeks later. After many years of buying and selling real estate, we know a professional when we see one. Lisa is one of the best!”

Loree and Mike B. - Dallas, TX



“I want to thank you for all of your efforts and assistance in helping Geri, Russ and me find a buyer and finalizing the sale of the property in Taos. Your professionalism, knowledge of the market and continuous vital support in all aspects of the marketing and sales process were invaluable and very much appreciated. You made the whole process, from start to finish, smooth and uncomplicated. You have been the answer to our prayers. If we ever become aware of anyone who is looking to buy or sell property in the Taos vicinity you can be assured we will recommend them to you.”

Van Cotten - Thompson Station, TN



“I am delighted, excited, and can't wait till I arrive in Taos.  Thank you so much for all of your help.  Wow, what a smooth deal. I know it didn't just 'happen'. You engineered it, and that is how it happened.”

Trent and Heidi Smith - Taos, NM



“I appreciate the work you did for my mother...your attention to details and deadlines made the process much less stressful. I know my mother has repeatedly told me how glad she was that we were working with you. I appreciate the fact that you kept me in the loop. There is a real Grace about you that cannot be learned from  a book and I am so pleased that we have had a chance to interact. Certainly, I will contact you in the future should it be time to sell or to look for additional properties. Thank you Lisa! It was a pleasure working with you.”

Tamara Barrett - Albuquerque, NM



“Having Lisa sell our house has truly given me an appreciation for all the work of a conscientious, hardworking realtor. Lisa has been incredibly meticulous with all the little details and paperwork and deadlines, but she has also, at least as importantly, been on our side throughout the whole process emotionally, being the wonderful person that she is. We could not have been in better hands and I will always be grateful for her for facilitating this transition in our lives and making it as smooth as possible.”

Sabine Wilms - Taos, NM



“Lisa Davis reminded me of the Realtors of 20 years ago when a Realtor was not strictly a salesperson. She gave a personal attention to my home selling and did not treat the project as a simple commodity sale. Lisa knew her market and she knew who was really interested in the house and who would not be interested.  She gave me tips as to what things I could do that would assist in the sale of thehouse.  And most important to me, she was attentive to the restrictions in access I needed and made sure those were accommodated.  I would certainly recommend her as a Realtor to anyone and would use her again if the need were to arise.”

Dr. Bill Lyons - Taos, NM



“Although Lisa was the Realtor representing the buyers when we sold our home, we were so impressed with her professionalism and helpful manner. Lisa inspires a great deal of confidence and is a delight to work with. We highly recommend her to anyone who is interested in buying or selling in Taos - she is terrific!!”

Art Baldonado and Kathleen Kirby - Berkeley, CA



“It gives me great pleasure to write from the office of our new home in El Rito/Latir that you showed to us last February. We knew from the minute we met you that we had the right representative to help us purchase the perfect home. You understood our needs and helped us achieve our dream of owning an adobe home in the most beautiful spot on earth. So when it came time to sell our land here, the choice of realtor was obvious. Thanks for your expertise, your diligence, your love of the land here and your great sense of humor!”

Vivian and John Dillon - El Rito Latir, NM



"Lisa Davis is simply the best! We have never had such a pleasant experience working with a Realtor. She is so knowledgeable, not only about real estate, but Taos history as well. And, she can find any piece of property anywhere! Her love of the area, and for what she does shines through. Though we live in Texas and were buying land “long distance”, Lisa’s professional skill and knowledge made this process easy. She was skilled at tuning in to what we were looking for, and helped us fin the perfect property for us. Thank you, Lisa!"

Lee and Susan Akins - Dallas, TX



"Thank you for being our wonderful Realtor..."

Linda Todd - Taos, NM



"I had a property that needed special care and attention. I called three Realtors and offered all of them an equal opportunity. Lisa presented a proposal that clearly displayed her commitment and professionalism. The property was sold in no TIME...Way to go Lisa."

Liam Murphy - Taos, NM



"We loved our home in Arroyo Seco, so selling was a hard decision. We needed someone to really take charge, not only of the marketing the house but helping us get the house ready for sale. Lisa consistently went above and beyond our expectations. She knows the market, earns the respect of her clients and delivers as promised."

Beth and Faraz Tyebjee - Newport Beach, CA



"When I was considering putting my house on the market last Spring, I called a friend of mine who had been a Realtor in Taos and who knows many current Realtors and others in the business here. I asked this friend who she considered to be the best Realtor in this area and who she'd recommend to help me sell my house. She didn't hesitate to give me an answer. "Lisa Davis" she said. She went on to tell me about Lisa, using words like: honest, knowledgeable, extremely hard working, thorough, meticulous with details, tough; and yet, fun and easy to be around. I called Lisa later that week and set up an interview. She suggested a selling price slightly higher than I had been thinking, offered a few suggestions on what I might do around the place to increase my chances of a quick sale and I listed the house with her. We sold the house about three months after listing, got our full asking price and my experience with Lisa was entirely positive. I'll be buying land and building again soon and Lisa Davis will definitely be "my Realtor" in all my transaction. After my experiences with her this year I think I can also call her "my friend" as well."

Stewart Herd - Taos, NM



"Truthfully, the process of buying a home ranks somewhere between having a baby and having a root canal. But somehow, Lisa not only made it tolerable she made it a pleasure. Smart, detail-oriented, and above all else...honest. Somewhere in the process Lisa went from being our real estate agent to being our friend. And, when you think about it, that may be the best testimonial of all."

Hal and Beth Walters - Teaneck, NJ



"You are a shining example of a true real estate pro - I'm grateful that I 'happened' on to you on the web."

Bobbi Barrow - Denver, CO



"We just want to thank you again for the great job you did selling our home and studio. They said it would take at least a year. We closed within 6 months. They said it was a difficult time of year to sell homes, but it wasn't for you. They said it was a unique property and special buyers like that were few and far between. You found them. They said it was too far from town. Town is not necessarily what everyone wants, and you knew that too. Thank you again for your wonderful enthusiasm, experience and expertise in selling to those special people who appreciate the unique property."

Wilson and Catherine Fisher and Studio Massaro - Hunt, TX



"It was a pure pleasure working with Lisa Davis. She found the perfect house for us and then went above and beyond to take care of all of the details and help us close ahead of schedule. She made us feel as if we were her only client. Besides being a delight to work with, she is smart, savvy, and incredibly well organized. I would highly, highly recommend Lisa."

Susan Zimmermann - Golden, CO



"Throughout my home purchase in Taos, NM, Lisa Davis proved to be an outstanding realtor. Lisa has a great sense of humor and lots of energy, but, most of all, she is a consumate professional. I was especially grateful to Lisa when the buying process got tense. Lisa kept me calm and positive. I whole-heartedly recommend Lisa Davis to anyone for their real estate transactions."

Allan Brunner - Taos, NM



"The term "satisfied" certainly is an understatement when it comes to how we feel about (Lisa's) professionalism, friendship, unending energy and acute problem-solving skills during these past few months of property prospecting in Taos. After fourteen years of visiting Taos, we finally decided to purchase a place. Our best decision was to ask (Lisa) to work with us on our search. With (her) unending assistance we finally found that place to love and care for. Throughout the initial stages of the search (she) kept us up to date on new land and house opportunities on a daily basis with (her) emails. When we found the time to come out to Taos to look at potential properties (she) always made time for us even though we know (she had) many clients to help and a life of (her) own to lead. (Lisa) balanced myriad tasks, taught us how to deal with each step of the process, and once we found our home, (her) guidance was superb, confident and comforting. (Lisa) truly made our search, purchase and post-purchase experiences meld into a seamless success story. We thank (her) for (her) humor, energy, boundless knowledge of real estate, and expertise. We have already encouraged our friends who are interested in Taos to contact (Lisa), (she's) the best."

Mike and Jeanne Adler - Plano, TX



In a letter to Prudential Schantz Realty, "I wish to acknowledge the excellent services provided by your sales associate Lisa Davis, and thank her for all her efforts and diligent work she put into making the sale of my Taos property a success last month. I realize that there were quite a few tasks that Lisa took upon herself and worked until they were completed. I also realize that if any one of the numerous tasks that she accomplished hadn't been done in a timely fashion that the sale would have definately been lost! I am convinced she is caring, responsive, and a dedicated professional! Lisa Davis represents your company well."

Michael Montoya - Albuquerque, NM



"In the last 12 years my wife and I have bought or sold homes 8 times in 4 different cities in New Mexico. Our real estate brokers have ranged from "average" to "excellent", but Lisa Davis sets a new standard. She's everything you could hope for, all in one package: she's personable, knowledgeable, fair, diligent, honest and professional. If you are a seller she will market you property using all effective means, including the latest technology. If you are a buyer she will work diligently to help you locate and purchase the house of your dreams. She will communicate with you regularly, and keep you informed of all relevant aspects of the transaction. She works every step of the process with a careful attention to detail. Lisa is in this business to succeed, and to her that means doing everything possible to fulfill her customer's needs. If you're looking for a real estate broker, you can do no better than Lisa Davis."

Don and Sylvia Hush - Los Alamos, NM



"Lisa Davis is the consummate real estate professional. From the moment of our initial contact, she has worked diligently to make our purchase become a reality. She was readily available to answer questions we had, and she remained in constant communication with us as she brokered the transactions, while keeping all the required inspections, surveys, etc scheduled right on time in order for us to have a "record setting closing". Since we live out of state, it gave us great peace of mind knowing Lisa was there assisting us. She graciously went above and beyond the call of duty to handle details in our behalf. We highly recommend Lisa Davis for all your real estate needs."

Bo and Mavis Harger - Sulphur, LA



"It is thanks to Lisa that we are the happy owners of a lovely piece of property in Taos. We essentially bought the property while living in Chicago. She was in constant touch with us throughout the transaction, keeping us up to date at every step. Lisa is efficient, knowledgeable, incredibly trustworthy, and always available to answer questions. In fact, even after our closing, she continued to help us with various details concerning the property. We simply can't say enough good things about Lisa. You'll be lucky to have her as your representative."

Joel and Meera Werth - Chicago, IL



"Working with Lisa during our Taos home search was truly a pleasure. The combination of her genuine personality, area knowledge and willingness to take our calls at any hour made us feel more like friends than clients. She helped us through the entire home buying process by providing us with great information which ultimately enabled us to make an informed decision. We love our house and much of the credit goes to Lisa for helping us find it."

Blaine & Barbara LeGere - Scottsdale, AZ



"Lisa's knowledge of the current market along with her attention to detail and integrity made for flawless real estate transactions. She is the standard by which all others should be judged."

Eugene and Vivian Malatesta - Hillsboro, OR



"Lisa is professional; detail oriented and represents her clients with integrity. We will not hesitate to use Lisa in the future when buying or selling a home. Lisa is the first real estate agent we've found who effectively uses the latest technology to work with out of town buyers and sellers. Her marketing via e-mail allowed us to react quickly to opportunities that typically were only available to local house hunters. We now own our dream vacation home thanks to Lisa. Lisa Davis rocks."

Kevin and Dina Phannes - Smyrna, GA



"My wife and I have had a few moves in our lifetime, however, our experience with Schantz Prudential Real Estate was exceptional, in particular with their representative Ms. Lisa Davis who smoothed the way for us throughout the buying process. She was most genial, courteous and particularly knowledgeable. It was a distinct pleasure working with a true real estate professional."

Mark & Iris Wortreich - Arroyo Seco, NM



"We sensed from our first meeting with Lisa that we were dealing with a true professional. Our first impressions were repeatedly confirmed during the weeks that followed as she worked with us in locating and purchasing our property. Honest, hard working and conscientious are just a few of the words we would choose to describe Lisa. We both agree that it would be hard to imagine anyone that could have provided us with better service. Lisa is the real deal!"

Frank and Jane Hennessy - Minneapolis, MN
