Santa Fe is a place of beauty and culture! You might be thinking of a home where the best dining, skiing, golfing and sunsets are within easy reach of your back door. A place where you can own a secluded retreat or a vacation getaway that could someday be a great place to retire. Or perhaps you're thinking of a place that trails only San Francisco among U.S. metro areas in percentage of households headed by same-sex partners. Whatever your aspirations, Banham & Associates can help make your dream of living in Santa Fe a reality!

Mark did an excellent job helping me find my ideal house in Santa Fe.

Cynthia L - Santa Fe, New Mexico: 2017-08-17

Mark is wonderful to work with and made the process so very easy. We lived out of state when we were looking at houses and he was very accommodating to our schedule. He helped us find our dream home quickly and was there for every question we had every step of the way.

Daniel M - Santa Fe, NM: 2017-08-15

Mark took the time to listen to my needs and put together a list of potential homes for my review. I flew into SFe for one day to view homes. Mark was organized and obviously he listened to me. I found the house that I needed and the whole process was streamlined and efficient.

Brian C - Santa Fe, New Mexico: 2017-08-15

Mark is an excellent realtor - one of the best I've ever worked with. He takes time to thoroughly understand your needs and he supports you throughout the entire transaction and beyond. He's easy to work with and extremely well-organized. He is an expert in the Santa Fe real estate market and will make sure you get exactly what you're looking for.

George F - Panama City, Fl: 2017-08-14

Mark's website is very professional and keeps a non Santa Fe resident informed on locale happenings.

Tom J - Santa Fe, New Mexico: 2017-08-12

Mark knows the Santa Fe market extremely well, allowing him to guide us to homes that were of interest to our needs. We have made two purchases using his services. Our first included a 1031 exchange, a contingent sale, and a lease back to the seller. Mark handled these complications with ease and assurance. This and our second transaction were handled by him while we were still living in California, and both closings went off without a hitch. Our relationship with Mark did not end with the close of our sales. He has been generous with his time and knowledge of the Santa Fe area, and has introduced us to many of his friends in Santa Fe, which made it easy for us to settle into our new community. You cannot go wrong using Mark for your next transaction.

Mark is a consummate pro. He knows the market intimately, and working in tandem with Philip Ross, he made the whole experience of looking for our new home a wonderful one. He's knowledgeable, smart, and a great guy. I highly recommend him!

Met Mark one time while we were in Santa Fe. He was very gracious to show us around Santa Fe and has kept us current on what's going on with his newsletters

Mark G - Apollo Beach, Florida: 2017-08-11

I contacted Mark prior to a trip that we took to Santa Fe. We were deciding whether Santa Fe was a good fit for us. Mark was extremely helpful and showed us some properties within our price range. He told us what living there was like, and even invited us to a Friends of Dorothy gathering. He was honest, friendly and very professional. I wouldn't hesitate in using Mark's real estate services.

Eric L - Santa Fe, New Mexico: 2017-08-11
