Our Janie Gilmore-Daniels organized a beautiful holiday party for kids at a Title 1 school. Presents were hand-pick and delivered, a feast was brought and shared, and even Santa made an appearance! All of us at Vista Encantada were honored to participate! Here are the precious hand-written thank you notes we got from all the kids. So sweet!!
New Mexico beats the national average for women-owned businesses…and Vista Encantada is ranked among the top 50 in the state!
According to Albuquerque Business First, New Mexico has a higher percentage of women-owned businesses than the national average. In their article, “The Opportunities and Challenges for Women-Owned Businesses in New Mexico” (Sept. 2-8, 2016, Vol. 23, No. 28), they cite that women-owned businesses make up for 39 percent of all businesses in New Mexico, compared to the national average of 35.8 percent.
Vista Encantada is so proud to make “The List of Women-Owned Businesses”, ranking #30 in 2015 (based on gross New Mexico revenue). Founded in 1999 by Kurstin Johnson, Vista Encantada has retained its heart and soul as a boutique real estate company, where our customers are treated like family. With only 12 employees, our 2015 gross revenue was stated as $1.38 million.
We are grateful for the many customers and brokers who have helped us attain such recognition and success!
