As a Santa Fe native with local roots that date back 10 generations, Bernadette “knows Santa Fe”. She loves showing off her home town and letting folks know just how special the “City Different” truly is. Her natural enthusiasm and love of her city is evident when she speaks of the Santa Fe of today or that of yesterday. “Not a day goes by”, she says, “that I don’t feel grateful for all that Santa Fe gives to me and how lucky I am to live here”.
She is a former banker with 28 years of financial experience in management, lending, and client care. She is now utilizing her talent and expertise in the field of real estate to serve clients in the same easy, friendly, and professional manner she is known for.
Bernadette has been an active member of many local organizations including The Chamber of Commerce, Kiwanis, and The Santa Fe Fiesta Council. Through her participation in Kiwanis, where she has been a member for over 25 years, she has helped to build and burn Zozobra, a 50 foot marionette symbolizing Old Man Gloom. Zozobra was originally designed by local artist, Will Schuster in 1924 and has been burned annually since then to rid the city of any gloom that might befall the “City Different”.
Bernadette is a “rabid” gardener, has been married “forever” to her soul mate, Bob, has 2 adult sons, a new granddaughter, and loves cooking and entertaining for friends and family.
Whether you are looking for views of the most perfect sunset, or the place that makes your heart flutter, Bernadette can help make those dreams a reality. She will also tell you that one of the best ways to enjoy this beautiful state is from the back of a Harley.
