If you want to buy or sell a house in Santa Fe, call DeAnne Ottaway! She seems to know everybody, and she can call on her vast array of local contacts to take care of everything from roofing, painting, new carpet, bed linens, and every other detail, big or small. She is very knowledgeable about real estate, and she has a great eye for making the home as attractive as possible. One example: she encouraged us to switch the mulch from red to dark brown, and it transformed the landscaping. Lots of compliments from the neighbors. We are implementing this suggestion on another or our properties. The curb appeal has inspired lots of positive comments from friends and passersby. She was attentive and responsive, always calling or texting back right away. It is all positive with DeAnne Ottaway.
Great ideas, and skillful in navigating difficult decisions. DeAnne was easy to work with, and tried to make the process easy for the seller. She was willing to let the seller override certain suggestions for improving the condition of the condo with graciousness and understanding, after ensuring the seller was fully informed of the pros and cons. I speak as the POA for the seller, who has no access to a computer at the time.
If a property needs a last minute repair, or a full landscape cleaning she knows who to call for your property sale or purchase to go smooth as possible!
Last summer my wife and I were planning a move to Santa Fe, NM. We were looking to rent a place from afar and a friend recommended we call DeAnne. We called DeAnne and she could not have been more helpful and responsive considering we were not planning on buying at that time. Long story short after 6 months of living in a condo we were notified that the owner was going to be putting the condo up for sale and was offering us first refusal. We absolutely love where we are living were interested in purchasing the condo. We instantly called DeAnne to represent us. DeAnne has been a joy to work with and considering I am a first time home buyer she has made it almost painless. DeAnne’s years of experience and intimate knowledge of the area have proved invaluable. She is so responsive and returns all calls, emails and texts almost immediately. Basically DeAnne is a very kind person who becomes a good friend representing you as opposed to just an agent. We give DeAnne Ottaway the highest of recommendations and feel she would greatly benefit you in any real estate transaction you are undertaking.
As an executor to my mother-in-law's estate, I relied on De Anne to coordinate an sell both her house and a rental apartment. She managed photo shoots, listings, inspections, open houses. Based on inspections, she had recommendations on what to address to have the most ready-to-sell property to receive the cleanest offers. De Anne made the process easy. We were thrilled with the offers and we were able to bring things to a close quickly. I recommend De Anne without hesitation.
