Al and Sherry Evans
"This letter is in praise of Lynn and Ken and their assistance in our home search in ABQ. I (Sherry) began with Lynn a year ago-She spent a great amount of time showing me properties. (I especially appreciated that she'd previewed each one!). She did not diminish in enthusiasm when my choice "did not work out" just 2 houses before signing a contract. So for the year internal, she continued to update and keep in contact - always professional, enthusiastic and upbeat. She is unmatched in her grasp of her dedication of her profession. I would rcommend her (and Ken too!) in an instant...in fact I already have! Thanks Lynn and Ken for all(including waterings & pulling weeds!) you have done for us. You will continue to remain on our "friends" list!!"

"Placitas Houses Sell, With Help 
Word zipped through Placitas like a flash flood after a sudden storm. Aware of my community involvements and great affection for Placitas, neighbors far and wide were astonished that I sold my house. 
They also were astonished that anyone was able to quickly sell a house in this market, so let me tell you how I did it, step-by-step. 
1. Know that you want to move, not that you have to move or should move but that you WANT to move. 
As much as I love Placitas, and I've been here almost 15 years, I totally knew that I had changed and wanted to be close to my great job and all the activities in Albuquerque. 
2. Find the right realtor. 
Mine is Lynn Koch who showed me land in 1988, and finally sold me property and participated in my house's design and construction. Her team now includes Ken and Diane, which gave me three people who did the work of five. I was lucky. 
3. Create a strategy. Price it right, de-clutter, set up the open houses, and notify your friends. 
Lynn listed my house according to the price per square foot that was selling. She did a whole analysis. Out listing price was about 3% below the appraisal done 18 months earlier. 
After de-cluttering, I hired Placitas experts Sonya Coppo and Anne Vigneri to stage and feng shui my house. Let's talk serious de-cluttering. They were wonderful; it looked fabulous. 
After doing everything right, my friends sold my house. They took action after receiving my emailed intention. One friend thought my house might be perfect for a friend of her friend (three degrees of separation). She was right. 
4. Do magic. The buyer was interested but hesitant. Several folks suggested releasing rituals; I did them. After the third time my boss suggested burying St. Joseph upside down, I did it; a day later I got the offer 
Did I get my asking price, no, but I got about 92% of my asking price. I knew that I wanted to move into my new life and knew the buyer would love the house, so I'm happy. 
You'll see me around visiting with friends, and at meetings and events for the Optimist Club de Sandoval, Jarineros, and at church. I still love Placitas, I just don't live here anymore.
