Buyer

Ricky's service is impeccable! He's very attentive to detail and ultra responsive, has extensive knowledge of the area, and is an adept negotiator. Right from our first meeting we knew we were in good hands. Now we have a new house and a new friend!

Valdez T.

We were working with Cathy long distance from Colorado which was a bit of a challenge for us. We were also working with a lender that made our lives miserable. Cathy on the other hand was very responsive and a gem to work with. We would highly recommend her.

Buyer

Cathy was great! She was very professional and yet personal. She had to work around our crazy schedule and all our crazy requests. She helped get us the house of our dreams. I would call on her again and will definitely be recommending her to friends. Thank you Cathy!

Buyer

Cathy was great to work with. She was careful, patient and very understanding of my process. It is so important who you choose to work with when doing something as life-changing as buying a new home, I trusted Cathy to guide me through this and I am so happy that I did!

Buyer

Ricky took lots of time walking us through entire home purchasing process, which we really appreciated as first time home buyers. We promptly received responses to our questions, and were able to get many viewings at relatively short notice, and on weeknights to accommodate our work schedule.

Buyer

Cathy is a total boss who you’d be lucky yo have in your corner. She helped us, as first time buyers, navigate a challenging buying process with humor and grace. We can’t imagine a better partner in the process and have already recommended her to several friends. If we ever buy or sell again, we’d work with her again in a heartbeat.

Ward F.

Ricky has been a wonderful help to us through the whole process of viewing properties in Santa Fe. Once we found a home we liked, he patiently guided us through all the paper work and made sure we understood each step and what our options were. We always look forward to our visits with Ricky - his smiling face and positive attitude make working with him a pleasure!

Seller

Cathy is amazing. I live out of state and recently sold a property left to me by my deceased mother. It was difficult, both emotionally and logistically - particularly during this time of Covid. Cathy was a true professional and helped guide me through every step of the process. I can guarantee that anyone who has the privilege of working with Cathy will be more than happy.

Seller

Ricky and his team did an excellent job in listing and selling my home. He is knowledgeable about the Santa Fe area and market and was always available when I had questions. Ricky and his team were very helpful in facilitating the selling process and assisted in many things that I could not do long distance. Ricky is the best realtor I have worked with in Santa Fe and I would highly recommend him!

Buyer

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.

Susan

Cathy is very thorough, knowledgeable and professional. She did a lot more than we ever expected (or had the right to expect) from a realtor. We truly appreciated her attention to detail and timeliness keeping us informed every step of the way which was invaluable since we live out of town. Her follow-through was exceptional. And, oh yes, she is steady not pushy as well as bright and cheery, a unique combination.

Buyer

My husband and I were connected with Cathy through Zillow and we couldn’t have gotten more lucky! Cathy treated us like family. She was always quick to respond to calls and texts, helped us navigate our new home town and most importantly helped us find the perfect home! Her expertise in the real estate market is unparalleled. We would recommend Cathy and her partner Ricky to anyone looking for a home in New Mexico!

Allen S.

Working with Ricky was just a wonderful experience for my wife and me. He was impressively knowledgeable about Santa Fe, home construction, and the purchasing process. Since we were new to the Santa Fe Area we had many questions which he patiently and concisely answered. Over the span of 30 years we have purchased and sold homes on both coast and in the Mid-West. Ricky was by far the best realtor we have worked with.

Buyer

My husband and I loved working with Ricky Allen and his wonderful team of professionals! We were first time homebuyers and he couldn't have made our experience any easier or more enjoyable. Every step of the way, he and his team guided our transaction, educated us about our options and negotiated a reduced price. He saved us as much money as possible and was always available with time, humor and knowledge. I would especially recommend Ricky for new buyers and people looking to relocate to Santa Fe.

Cathey H.

Cathy Griffith made our home buying (and selling) experience pleasant and efficient. She has consistently been engaging, helpful, efficient and eager to please. There was no question that she couldn't answer, no request that she didn't deal with swiftly and appropriately. She is a real pro who works hard to find excellent properties to show to her clients, and she knows how to negotiate with potential buyers (and sellers) to create a contract that is a win for all parties. We liked her instantly and consider her a friend!

Cozy S.

Working with Ricky and his team is a joy. Ricky is friendly, knowledgeable, energetic, committed and great at his job. Nothing falls through the cracks. He is on top of the purchase process and in fact secured a signed contract in just over 12 hours for my purchase of a beautiful property that had multiple offers. Ricky is meticulous in client representation, a professional who listens well and provides a steady hand through to closing. Ricky's responsiveness and reliability are rare qualities that build trust and create a great working relationship. Highly, highly recommend Ricky Allen.

Seller

Ricky truly understood the magic of this property and was able to convey that to the potential buyers. He scheduled multiple open house events and kept interest building through the winter months. In the end, he found the one who fell in love with house and worked with us through the closing process, making it as smooth as could be expected with a 70+ year old house. It was not a "top-of-the-market" property, but we never felt that higher priced properties were getting more attention than we were. We would highly recommend Ricky and his team in any real estate transactions you may be considering.

Buyer

We were so lucky to come across Ricky's name before being in Santa Fe to look at properties. From the first time we spoke he was professional, friendly, and genuinely interested in our story and helping us find a dream home. We were really taken care of between him and his team as they scheduled us many visits to properties, had lots of helpful insights to Santa Fe and the real estate market, and then were very responsive as we put in an offer and went through a challenging transaction! It was really easy to trust Ricky's guidance, which was crucial as we are fairly new to buying real estate and were not in Santa Fe throughout the transaction. We are so grateful for Ricky's help, knowledge, and negotiation skills!

Mark T.

Ricky and associates have gone above and beyond in helping us purchase our house in Santa Fe. We have just closed on our house (May 2019) and we did so within 21 days. Somehow, Ricky brought all of the various parties together and finalized everything without a single problem. The minute after we closed, my wife and I just breathed a sigh of relief and commented on how easy it was buying a house more than 1800 miles away! Ricky's knowledge of the market and the Santa Fe area were both very helpful in making our final decision. Ricky and associates were involved in every step of the process and they followed up with numerous emails in order to finalize everything in a neat and timely manner. Thank you Ricky for you consummate professionalism but most of all, thank you for caring.

Buyer

I worked with Cathy for five years. Until the day came we finally found the perfect place. My daughter was diagnosed with brain cancer, and at the time we looked for a place she would be comfortable and feel free as she reached heaven. In the interim, she passed, but yet for my two other daughters, we still found the place of refuge we so seemed. We became friends, she answered me even way past her time of work should be over. I cannot recommend the realtor enough, I found her through Zillow, but after a time she became my friend, knowing what I needed and finally, we found this place. Here in Santa Fe, to be, to see the sky, to see the blue and orange skies, to be closer to heaven here in Santa Fe, she guided me every inch of the way. Thank you? With all my heart. Me and my daughters, Xavia, Luna, and in Heaven Zamora Moon.

J. Collins

Finding Cathy Griffith to help with our Santa Fe home search was a great gift! In this market, her knowledge and perseverance helped us find and buy the perfect home for us.

Ricky and Cathy both assured that all the details were taken care of at every step of the buying process. Add to that a strong knowledge of the local market, immediate responsiveness to our concerns, and a caring, friendly approach to customer relations.

J & R

Cathy was an absolute joy to work with. Her knowledge of the market, amazing people skills, and negotiation smarts ensured that we were able to buy the house we wanted in a very competitive market. Cathy has a wonderful, upbeat energy, and she was there for us at every step of the transaction and beyond. I cannot recommend Cathy highly enough. J & R, Albuquerque.

Norm A

Ricky is on top of his game as a great realtor. He’s highly responsive, smart, genuine, pleasant, tenacious, and pragmatic. He found the perfect home for us in Santa Fe and negotiated an equitable price for us. He literally responds within minutes of being asked a question or to address a need. He knows the greater Santa Fe area extremely well and can recommend the ideal neighborhood/setting for his clients. We highly recommend him.

John

Each step of the way, Cathy proved accessible, knowledgeable, helpful, diligent, reliable, and simply there for us. From phone calls to FaceTime to Zoom sessions to video texts, she opened the door to our new home, showed us the future, and enabled us to confidently close the deal, without our leaving Houston. (The pandemic prevented travel to New Mexico.) Even after the sale, she went the extra mile, literally, to check on the house as severe cold weather descended on Santa Fe. She earned each star—all five—and our gratitude. We look forward to thanking her in person one day soon.

M. Portmann

We started our search for a Santa Fe property without knowing anybody in the Real Estate Business there and could not have found a better qualified than Cathy Griffith. Lucky us! She managed to give us a good sense of the local real estate market, immediately understood what we were looking for as far as price, style, location, etc. is concerned and once we were prepared to travel from Florida to Santa Fe set up a concise viewing schedule that was very successful. Her expertise and guidance throughout the process up until closing was excellent, very efficient, and she did all of that with a lot of humor, patience and warmth. We can highly recommend her services.

I have worked with RIcky Allen and Cathy Griffith on five transactions now in Santa Fe, ranging from commercial to retail to residential. Both of them are simply outstanding. When it comes time to do a sixth transaction I'll go back to them again. No higher praise is possible.
