Meet the Team

Each of RCT’s founding partners has earned brand equity as individual realtors over several years. The combination of each broker’s individual equity is a key asset and a powerful competitive advantage. 

Our team is led by seasoned and successful professionals who know the Santa Fe market and all its distinctive and charming neighborhoods and nuances. We believe that the personalities of the brokers can make all the difference in the world. Real Estate transactions can be stressful, so we look for opportunities to make your transaction easier and your time with us more pleasant.
