Galisteo & Lamy
Two of New Mexico’s most stunning artist villages are Lamy and Galisteo. 18 minutes south of the Plaza, the villages of Galisteo and Lamy provide authentic adobe homes and beautiful homes with both views and acreage.
Named for Archbishop Jean-Baptiste Lamy, the Amtrak Southwest Chief still stops in Lamy daily on its run between Chicago and Los Angeles. In 1896, the Fred Harvey Company built the luxurious El Ortiz Hotel, signifying Lamy as an important railroad junction.
The Lamy Railroad and History Museum, located in the historic “Legal Tender” restaurant building, is dedicated to preserving local history and heritage, with emphasis on the railroads and their impact on the area.
Galisteo, sited in the magnificent Galisteo basin is an all adobe village of nearly 250 residents including an incredibly diverse artist community.
The annual Galisteo Studio Tour allows visitors to see inside many Galisteo artist studios where you’ll find photography, paintings, pottery and ceramic art, retablos, jewelry, bronze sculpture and weavings.
Galisteo has served as a filming location for a number of major motion pictures. Nearly all have been westerns (including The Cowboys, Silverado, The Hi-Lo Country, Young Guns and Crazy Heart), though the town also served as backdrop for fantasy blockbusters Legion and Thor.
The area around Galisteo is called the The Galisteo Basin Preserve – an ecological region of fragile beauty and diversity celebrated for its scenic, cultural, and wildlife values. The Galisteo Basin Preserve is planned to conserve and restore more than 13,000 acres of open space as well as promote thoughtful, stewardship-oriented community development.

Ricky and Cathy represented us a sellers and did a terrific job from the outset of setting the asking price, advising us as to how to show the house, guiding us through the inspection process, and finally closing the deal. They checked in with us throughout and stayed on top of things until closing. Very pleased!
Super knowledgeable of the Santa Fe real estate market. Well connected to the broker network. Depth of experience showed in everything from pricing, staging, negotiations, to closing. Truly appreciated their professionalism in working FOR us. We felt we were in good hands while both buying and selling with Ricky & Cathy. They are a team that we would work with again.
Ricky and Cathy were absolutely professional, knowledgeable, and could not have been more helpful. We recommend them without reservation. They listened to us, showed us everything that fit, negotiated carefully on our behalf, and handled the escrow and closing flawlessly.
We started with another realty group and agent team and then switched to Ricky and Cathy. In the midst of a pandemic, and the unique characteristics of our home, Ricky and Cathy showed the kind of steady hand that got the job done. Ricky listened very carefully to our needs and what we thought were the strengths of the home and then those things were highlighted in the online and printed materials, as well as during showings. Their manner was always respectful to us and potential buyers. They responded quickly to questions and concerns. I would highly recommend them for selling any property in the Santa Fe area. We are grateful for their efforts.
