Taos is a town in the north-central region of New Mexico in the Sangre de Cristo Mountains and incorporated in 1934. Other nearby communities include Ranchos de Taos, Cañon, Taos Canyon, Ranchitos, El Prado, and Arroyo Seco. The town is close to Taos Pueblo, the Native American village and tribe from which it takes its name.
Beginning in 1899, artists began to settle in Taos; six formed the Taos Society of Artists in 1915. In time, the Taos art colony developed. Many paintings were made of local scenes, especially of Taos Pueblo and activities there, as the artists often modeled Native Americans from the pueblo in their paintings. Some of the artists’ studios have been preserved and may be viewed by visitors to Taos. These include the Ernest L. Blumenschein House, the Eanger Irving Couse House and Studio—Joseph Henry Sharp Studios, and the Nicolai Fechin house, all of which are listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Influential later 20th-century Taos artists include R. C. Gorman and Agnes Martin.
The Taos valley, Rio Grande and Taos mountains provide many opportunities for recreation, such as fly fishing, horseback riding, golfing, hot air ballooning, llama trekking, rafting, mountain biking and more. In the winter many people come to Taos to ski. Wheeler Peak, at 13,161 feet, is the highest peak in New Mexico. The Taos area has four ski areas – Taos Ski Valley, Red River ski area, Sipapu (ski area) and Angel Fire ski area. Other winter activities include hot air ballooning, horseback riding, snow-shoeing, cross-country skiing, ice skating, ice fishing and snowmobiling.

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.
Cathy is absolutely a joy to have as an agent. She was patient to my questions and showing as many houses as it took to find the "one", and was super responsive. When she didn't know an answer, she always followed up. She was interested in what my family's needs were, and even went the extra mile to make a connection for my teenage daughter! I highly recommend her to both locals and newbies to the Santa Fe area.
