The beauty of Taos and the surrounding areas have made my life here a happy one. I would like to share that happiness with my clients to help you discover the joy of the Taos mystique yourselves. I will educate you about the Taos area and the Taos real estate market so you can make an informed decision regarding your purchase here. I believe my integrity, knowledge and caring will make your real estate experience here as comfortable and fun as possible. Your best interests are my highest priority. I promise to go the extra mile……and dogs are always welcome!
Just a little about myself…...I came to the Taos area in 1975 mainly due to my love of skiing and higher altitudes in general. Skiing has always been a passion of mine since my college days at the University of New York, College at Cortland where I majored in Elementary Education and signed up for a skiing class. Taos Ski Valley is rated as one of the top 10 ski areas in the world and it is truly awesome and fun……and always challenging! Some days spent there are as good as it gets!!
The other seasons are wonderful here also as you might imagine. I have always loved the outdoors and the mountains and rivers near Taos are really great for hiking with my dogs and friends after the snow stops falling. The blue, blue sky and the pure white clouds make your heart soar…..not to mention the amazing sunsets we are famous for! I also love the fiber arts that are so prevalent in the Southwest. I wove rugs and pillows in the quaint village of Arroyo Seco (on the way to the ski valley) for several years and thoroughly enjoyed it. With the real estate market booming in Taos, I don’t have much time to weave anymore but am always looking for new designs and color combinations.
These days I find myself looking for houses and land that please my clients and that is a full time job! I look forward to meeting you and finding you that perfect property that you just know is out there somewhere. Let the treasure hunt begin…
My clients refer their friends to me on a regular basis knowing that I will take excellent care of their needs.
Elizabeth Joy from Taos says:"I cannot recommend Sholan enough, as a realtor and a compassionate, truly caring person who will go the extra mile and uncover every detail, and be a true ally for all of your real estate needs. As a Taos local of 30 years, she is knowledgeable and familiar with the entire county. As a patient, calm and heart-centered individual, I trust her implicitly. Once in a while, you find a person of ethics whose heart is in the right place, and whose mind will tackle all business issues with infinite wisdom and patience. Sholan is such a person. She is fun to be around. Her gut instincts are right, and she has the knowledge to carry those instincts out for you. You are fortunate if you have found her! "
Nina Anthony from Taos says:"Thanks for all of your help. I really appreciated your time and tenacity. Especially since it took you away from potentially profitable situations. Thanks again for your help and please feel free to drop by for a visit. "
Ellen Shiever from Montclair, NJ says:"Thanks so very much. One of the nicest things about the time I've spent in New Mexico was getting to know you you. You are such a kind and generous friend and I hope we can get together the next time I'm in Taos. I love the condo!! "
Ron and Gay Rakosky of New Orleans and Taos say:"Sholan is a joy to work with; her honesty and willingness to go the extra mile are exemplary."Gene Hauber from Cincinnati and Taos says:"This is to wholeheartedly endorse Sholan Chambers as a realtor. I live in Cincinnati, Ohio (and now Taos!). After visiting Taos annually for several years, the winter of 1997-98 found me in a position to finally buy a house there. I had known Sholan for several years through a mutual friend and I naturally turned to her as my realtor. Sholan and I talked at length about what I wanted in a house. Sholan sent me the property listings for all the agencies and kept me apprised of new listings. In February of 1998, I came to Taos for five days to look at properties. Sholan had arranged for me to see every single house on the market in Taos that would potentially meet my requirements. I fell in love with one of the houses and before I left Taos she and I drafted an offer. She also arranged a meeting for me with a mortgage broker to secure financing. As offers and counteroffers flew through the fax machines in the next few days, Sholan was invaluable in the financial negotiations. The Seller and I settled on a price that both of us were happy with. Sholan continued to provide much needed support. She referred me to a local insurance agent and skillfully guided me through every step through the closing. Since I was1500 miles away, this was both necessary and reassuring. Even after closing, when her job was theoretically finished, she continued to provide services for me. In summary, I cannot speak highly enough of Sholan. She is a wonderful and diligent realtor who listened to me, helped me, and went the extra mile for me. "I look forward to meeting you and working with you to find the property you desire. Even if it does take me a few extra miles!
