" Having recently sold a high end house in the aftermath of the financial crisis, I am grateful for Lisa and John Cancro at Taos Properties. Lisa invested her own elbow grease in the beginning, when the home was initially listed. Later, as the market vacillated, they kept us abreast of the real estate landscape county wide with extensive periodic statistics and analysis. John helped shepherd us through a complicated lot line adjustment. We utilized their network of cleaners and maintenance & repair folks, who were prompt and fairly priced. Selling a home is hard work, and also emotional. Thanks so much for navigating us through the process. "

"For twenty years prior to moving to Taos, I was a real estate broker at N.T. Callaway - Princeton New Jersey’s boutique real estate firm. I had high expectations when choosing a firm and broker to work with when we decided to purchase a home in Taos. Lifelong friends of ours recommended Lisa and John Cancro and we could not have been happier – not only with Lisa and John, but everyone who assisted us at Taos Properties. For both buyers and sellers, the Taos Property website is a breeze to navigate and esthetically beautiful. Their print ads and photography are a cut above their competition. Lisa and John have so much integrity, both in terms of their own ethics and values, and with regard to the many people that they networked us with as we moved through the process of buying.…"

" We've just closed on our house in Taos and could not be more pleased with how the process went with Lisa and Taos Properties. Contrasting it to our challenging experience selling our home in Oregon is stark! Lisa is so approachable- she listens, she is efficient and prompt, easy to talk to and easy to get ahold of. Lisa also pays close attention to detail-"cleaning up" documents, clarifying details, and making sure communication is clear-creating a smooth and easy process for everyone. I highly recommend Lisa and Taos Properties and thank them for a superlative house buying experience. Shannon and John Poynter "

"The longer I work, the more I really appreciate people who are incredibly skilled and professional in their roles. The longer I live, the more I value and lean on people who are kind and trustworthy. We immediately felt comfortable from the first exchange on this incredible journey.

"I was extremely lucky to be referred to Lisa Cancro with Taos properties when considering my move to Taos. Besides the fact that Lisa was always there to respond to my questions, and all the other angst that goes along with buying a property in a new community, the thing that I appreciated most about her was that I never for a moment felt obligated to or pressured to “do the deal” . No matter how much time and effort she spent on me, this fact remained. I truly felt that Lisa wanted me to do what was right for me from beginning to end. This was a great gift and allowed me the space to explore what was right for me. Now I own a beautiful home in this beautiful community which speaks to the other aspect of her talent. She knows how to navigate the roller coaster ride of escrow and…"

BUYING TAOS REAL ESTATE AND JOINING US IN THE LAND OF ENCHANTMENT?
Our goal is to guide you through the process with information to make intelligent decisions with confidence. Finding the right property is the first key step, but actually creating and negotiating a contract intelligently is the focus of our work. Then getting it closed, focusing on financing issues, the appraisal process, reading and understanding a title binder and survey, and finally organizing the process in a timely manner is why we are successful. In your Real Estate transaction, details matter, let us show you what a difference we can make.
SELLING A HOME, LAND or INVESTMENT PROPERTY?
We will skillfully market your property with flare. Being an independently owned real estate agency, we are intimately involved with each and every listing. We take personal care and attention to meet each and every client and get to know them, their property and their needs. We focus on the uniqueness, the feel and the energy of each property and its owner. We are only stewards for a short time in the great scheme of things. Its important to know what we are marketing and who the eventual next caretaker of each property is. We care and we do not try to be everything to everyone. Each project is nurtured, so we get involved as if it were our own.
BUYING OR SELLING A BUSINESS?
We will assist you in making qualified decisions. John Cancro has the knowledge and experience to analyze and understand financial statements, gained during his graduate years at New York University and his years as a commercial broker in Manhattan. In addition to transactions done in New York, John traveled throughout the country working for a real estate fund as an asset manager and acquisition specialist. All real estate is exciting, but actually making money from your investment does not happen by accident. In the past seventeen years, while living in Taos, he has gained additional experience by assisting clients in the purchase and sale of Bed & Breakfasts, restaurants, and a variety of small businesses in the Taos area.
