Just look for the Red Truck!

After a long search for artists who could help us create the perfect sign, we found them!  A huge thanks to Kevin Gowdy (, and his lovely wife, Maria, for rendering a beautiful representation of our wonderful Vista Encantada Realtors, LLC!  Whenever you find someone like Kevin…not only an incredible artist, but a great businessman who is professional, kind, prompt, and right on target with following through on what he promises…you can’t help but spread the word.  Come on by sometime, and see this work of art in person!  We’d love to see you.

Vista Encantada puts on quite a party!

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!!

Vista Encantada makes “The List”…again!

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!
