REALTOR PROFILE

MEET

STACEY BLISH PIÑON INVESTMENTS: A FAMILY AFFAIR WRITTEN BY LAURA BULKIN

to business sales. I gained a breadth of experience in all these roles, but real estate as well as a return to Taos was always in the back of my mind. So in December of 2019, I packed my car to the gills, and departed frigid Maine for home. I worked at Taos Air while studying for my real estate license and reacquainting myself with Taos and the many outdoor activities it has to offer. While also conveniently socially distant, this past year I’ve been enjoying hiking, swimming in the rio, mountain biking, and playing pickleball and tennis. I am a regular on the pickle ball court Tuesday and Saturday, and let’s not forget Margarita Monday Women’s Tennis Club.” Her real estate studies prepared her to step into the family business. “My dad [realtor Evan Blish] started Piñon Investments of Taos in 1984. This evolved into a successful real estate business while he also worked winters at the St. Bernard in Taos Ski Valley. I always admired his knack as a people person and the balanced lifestyle he had created for himself. As a kid, I would go to his office and pretend to work, and always loved joining him for the occasional showing. Once I got my real estate license in July of 2020, we hit the ground running. We work together pretty much every day, and yes, this does include weekends and nights. He’s deemed us a father-daughter team, and I’m soaking up all I can, observing his diligence and the genuineness he always carries. Walking into the office, you might also find my mom there doing the bookkeeping or my little dog Stevie, snoozing away. My family has become my quarantine pod, as we work, cook, dog walk, and ski together.” We asked Stacey about upcoming projects that especially excited her.

Stacey Blish has traveled the world, but Taos real estate was always in her blood, and has now brought her back to become a force in the business.

“We work closely with Max Edelman, a very talented builder who was born here. Max has been building houses in Taos for more than twenty years. He is a master of his craft, so be on the lookout for some of his new houses soon to be on the market. Beausoleil is another project that I am excited about, it is an upcoming development in Des Montes off the Hondo-Seco Road. This project contains high quality home sites, a prime location, and amazing views.”

“I was born and raised in Arroyo Seco. I loved growing up here, but I craved change and wanted to see what else existed beyond Taos. I bounced from a small school in Florida, to a Greenpeace Internship in San Francisco, to a semester abroad in Brisbane, Australia. I eventually landed back in New Mexico to complete my bachelor’s degree at UNM in Albuquerque. The following seven years were spent in Denver, CO, and Portland, ME, where I tried out lots of jobs including an environmental auditor, server, property manager, flight attendant and most recently business

She spoke about the future of Taos real estate. “With more people working remotely, I see Taos continuing to be a soughtafter place. The quality of life is high here, and so it is easy for me to promote a Taos lifestyle. Amidst the pandemic it’s certainly been challenging to build rapport with clients, as we currently stay distanced, wear masks, and drive separately to showings. I look forward to the day we are through this, and can interact in the car and the office, and meet up at local favorites like El Conejo or Medley.”

Taos Real Estate Market Report

Š Peter Lora of the Lora Company

Full Year January - December 2020

The pandemic in 2020 added an incremental wave of buyers to a market that had been steadily gaining momentum for the past several years. The market is expected to remain strong in 2021. Call me for a free market analysis of the value of your property, and a consultation about the selling process. SINGLE-FAMILY HOMES - Sales of single-family homes–by far the biggest segment of the market–were up in every month this year except January and May compared to the same month in 2019. Unit sales for the year were 24% above last year’s pace; dollar sales were 29% above. The supply of homes listed for sale is nowhere near adequate for buyer demand, which spiked this year due to the Covid-19 pandemic. Prices are rising at an accelerated rate. CONDOS - Demand has also increased. The lack of inventory is even more acute than for homes, and this was a limiting factor on sales: unit sales for the year were down 9% from 2019. Prices are rising in this market segment, too. Median and average prices were up 25% and 11%, respectively. As a result, total dollar sales were only 1% below last year even with unit volume down 9%. LAND - Unit sales finished the year down 7% from 2019. The land market hasn’t recovered from the real estate recession the way the residential market has. The cost to buy land and build a home has for years been substantially greater than the price of an existing home. Covid-19 has had a major impact on supply chains, causing building costs to jump even more. However, with residential inventory very limited, some buyers will opt to buy land and build. Recently, there has been an increase in the number of pending land sales. We expect 2021 sales to be up.

ENCHANTED HOMES CXXXVII


Mattress Mary’s Mountain Lifestyle has a variety of items to furnish your “mountain lodge” in light, luxury, and style. Since folks have been staying closer to home throughout the past year, being comfortable and cozy inside has never been more important. Robyn Pincus, Mountain Lifestyle’s manager, shared her selection of furniture that contribute warmth to every room.

SLEEP

ENTERTAIN

The Urban Rustic line by Horizon Home showcases their “mixed media and distressed look.” This queen bedframe features a tall headboard and two drawers at the foot. A matching dresser and nightstand are the same luminous gold and russet hues. Iron hardware looks forged in a blacksmith’s shop, while copper pulls add a contemporary touch.

DINE

The Chambers Creek dining table by Emerald Home Furnishings will lend charm and hominess to any eating area. Seating six or eight with a leaf, it is constructed of pine with an oak veneer that appears shaped by the elements, sanded and polished to a soft glow. Matching high-backed and captain’s chairs are upholstered in a camel faux leather. This is the perfect line for an open floor plan, with complementary coffee and end tables to adorn the living room.

3

Play a chilly day or evening away with a game table by Rustic Log. This manufacturer builds rustic log furniture for every purpose, but their game table is one of a kind. Made of dead-standing aspen sourced in the Rocky Mountains, this table glows with a high gloss finish. A chess/checkerboard is burned into the center. Each of the seats around this hexagonal table has a recessed cup and felted poker chip holder.

FAMILY AND LIVING The barndoor TV console by Sunny Designs is constructed with iron hardware and a honey colored stain overlaying weathered wood. Sliding doors hide shelves on either side; square cubbies form the space below an open shelf in the center. This piece could easily transform into a bar; each cubby can hold a bottle of wine or spirits.

EVERYWHERE The obvious addition to transform any room from chilly and dim into a welcoming ambiance is a freestanding fireplace console by Legends Furniture. These electric, ecofriendly, and energy-efficient fireplaces (mostly made in the U.S.) provide a soft, continuous fire – with or without heat – enjoyable year-round. Stylings and finishes range from modern to rustic.

2020 REALTOR of the Year Pennie Wardlow

For Pennie Herrera Wardlow, serving her community is a private matter. She is hesitant to let on that she helps the less fortunate whenever she can, and dedicates time and resources to animal health and welfare. Her quiet sense of duty and public service have led the Taos County Association of REALTORS® to name Pennie the deserving recipient of the 2020 REALTOR® of the Year Award. She raised money and contributed her time to distribute Coats for Kids. She volunteered at the Residential Treatment Center for seven years, her service extending to all areas of the centers outreach. She served on the Taos County Protest Board hearing tax complaints. Recently, when the coronavirus took us all by surprise, she worked with pet food suppliers to get food to folks who couldn’t afford to feed their pets, much of the cost coming out of her own pocket. Former New Mexico Attorney General Gary King appointed her to the New Mexico Animal Cruelty Task Force, and Governor Bill Richardson asked her to be on the Animal Shelter Board setting standards for all shelters in New Mexico. She is always willing to go that extra mile to make sure that all the parties to a real estate transaction are treated with respect and professionalism. That, and so much more, is why we are delighted to name Pennie Herrera Wardlow the 2020 REALTOR® of the Year!

FEATURED HOME

it’s always been an entertainer’s home.

Don’t be fooled by the majestic stature and celebrity affiliations. Hacienda de Viernes is a friendly place with home at its heart. Setting aside the beautiful landscaping with its abundant wildlife and scenic views, the peace and tranquility thanks to solid adobe construction inside and out, ample guest accommodations and grand gathering spaces – it’s the warm and welcoming nature that makes this the ultimate entertaining home, an identity that has manifested over a century and a half and continues to grow. Just like any Taos personality, Hacienda de Viernes has quite a story to tell. “The main thing about this house is it’s always been an entertainer’s home,” said Century 21 Award Broker Debbie Friday Jagers, whose family has owned the property since the 1970s. She recalls the starstudded celebrations overlapping with special occasions mingling with joyous family milestones that punctuated her own life here, and she has also gotten to know the history of her childhood home, revealing a tale of stunning transformation since its humble 19thcentury beginnings in what is now central Taos.

Larry and Judi Friday, past owners of Hacienda de Viernes.

The one-room hunting cabin, built in the late 1800s, had grown to a four-room house by 1924 when it won the hearts of an Oklahoma family who welcomed the opportunity to escape their home state’s heat and work on their cool New Mexico summer home. The hacienda began to take shape as new rooms were added to accommodate the Brandenburg family. According to Debbie, one of the defining features of the home is the regal dining room that was developed specifically for Barbara Brandenburg’s wedding to John Brenner in 1951. “This dining room was built for the wedding reception, and the two-car garage was converted to become this huge kitchen,” Debbie said, adding that Barbara Brandenburg-Brenner herself has a collection of happy memories of events and entertaining in the home and describes it as the perfect venue even back then. “Barbara remembers it was always about parties, having people over.”

Also during the Brandenburg era, a new threecar garage was built, with a wood-burning stove installed to keep the cars warm. It was not long ago that Debbie learned the identity of the home’s next owner. “A woman was outside taking pictures, and she said, ‘I grew up in this house,’” she said. The woman turned out to be the daughter of renowned bronze artist Malcolm Alexander, who purchased the home from the Brandenburgs in 1960. “She told me they’d invite their friends from the Pueblo and have big parties that lasted for days, until they all fell down.” But the life story of this fun-loving family estate is not without its tough times. After Alexander sold the property to a local hotelier, it became a rental. Abused and broken when Larry and Judi Friday first laid eyes on it, there was little sign of the light and love that had so recently filled this home. Nevertheless, they must have recognized something worth rescuing, and in 1972, the house of Friday embarked on its new life.

Hacienda de Viernes, circa 1940.

Judi and Larry, along with their three daughters, Debbie and her younger sisters Mary and Betsy, moved in and immediately started renovations, including new stucco, carpet, paint, raised ceilings and damage repair. There were also the personal touches like Larry’s flagstone floor in the living room and Judi’s new sunroom, with its Carmen Velarde fireplace, adjacent to the kitchen. They made other improvements as well, including a major renovation for ADA accessibility and enhancements to the second floor to expand the master suite, creating two new bathrooms, walk-in closets, dressing rooms, and a wet bar. The Fridays commissioned their friend and local artist Susan Reynolds to make something special of some grease-yellow cabinets by turning each wooden door into a one-of-a-kind floral piece painted with bright, cheerful colors. And they revived the spirit of entertaining, hosting events that would be the talk of Taos for years to come. Some, like the weddings, picnics, and annual holiday parties, were meticulously organized; others, like a 3-a.m. rooftop serenade and call-tobreakfast by then-local-nightclub-owner Antonio Mendoza, were as spontaneous as it gets. All were memorable. “It was always about life and love and nurturing,” Debbie said.

Additional income is also available through hunting; the owner could either sell the ranch tags or one could do their own hunting operation as well. There is a lot of exibility from using the hunting to offset ranch operation costs or for the hunter using the cattle operations or grazing lease to help pay for their hunting addiction and allow them to hunt quality big game every year.

Dolores River Ranch - Dolores CO 1,120 Acre - $2,850,000 The Dolores River Ranch located in Southwest Colorado sits on top of Haycamp Mesa offering tremendous views from various locations. Bordered on 3 sides by national forest the terrain varies from canyons marked by rock outcroppings and overhangs to rolling wildower-lled meadows with ponds and springs. There are still historical remnants from when hay was cut in the meadows. The ranch is modestly improved allowing for a new owner to mold and shape it to their vision. With an abundance of untapped potential, the ranch offers excellent hunting and recreation opportunities for those looking for the perfect getaway. 50

It added so much to the ambiance of our meal and our friendship that we loved being invited for dinner. We have other friends who did a major remodel of an old home and money was no object. They created a bathroom that had both exercise equipment as well as a fireplace. It is likely the only bathroom I was ever been in that evoked emotion. I love it. Where there is fire there is joy in my heart. A fireplace in a kitchen makes sense to me, especially because in my world folks gather where the food is. Add that charm and warmth to what otherwise makes kitchens special and I can set up shop for a long, long time. And those that make it possible to cook in it, or on it, makes it all the more special.

ROOMS WE LOVE.

BY HARVEY BLAUSTEIN

I don’t know about you but I love rooms that have live fire. While that often means the living room in most houses, creative folks with a few bucks in their pocket will often put them elsewhere as well. I have seen them in kitchens, which I truly love, master bedrooms, which we have had, dining rooms, and even saw one in a huge bathroom that my honey would never leave. I used to be a fire snob. If it wasn’t a kiva, burning wood, it wasn’t a fireplace to me. I have since learned to adapt out of necessity and now find a really good gas fired fireplace to be perfectly acceptable and, maybe, I say maybe, better. For me it was 3 back surgeries and 5 fusions later that I became enlightened. I am not a quick learner, I guess. But let’s get back to the topic at hand. Rooms I love have live fire. And it doesn’t matter to me what that room is called. There is a house on Blumenshein, in the Weimer area, that was once owned by friends. It had a fireplace at eye height in the

But let me note that kitchens are often my favorite room in a house. And while I am clearly a fire fanatic Rick, and son Max Edelman, built kitchens that didn’t need a fireplace to love. They were always large and warm and full of character. The finishes were always top of the line and their homes often sold for plus or minus $1M. They had a knack for layout and installed fine appliances and tile. I hardly ever noticed the lack of a fireplace because they were so great. Max has since moved on and I don’t know that Rick is still building. But their houses are around and if kitchens are important to you, find one if you are in the market. Frankly, I don’t require that fire be indoors. While it isn’t technically a room in the traditional sense, courtyards or portals with one work for me. Fire rings do it just as well. I remember in the days of the Haley Bopp comet. We had a fire ring in our courtyard on the east side of our house in the Cañon foothills and we had an awesome portal on the west side that looked out forever. It was a perfect vantage point to see the wonders of that rare sighting. We had friends over regularly and we’d go from one side to the other just taking in the wonders of Taos combined with the grandness of Mother Nature. That last for weeks or maybe months – I frankly don’t recall - but nothing lasts forever. While it is said that size matters – in some things – to me it doesn’t need to be grand to be a room that I love. It just needs charm and character and preferably a fire. And while kivas created by Carmen Velarde here in Taos are treasured, it’s what’s in the fireplace that counts for me. I love fire and I love the rooms that allow for it. And while I am on the topic of fire, I do prefer to have piñon burning. The aroma is something that lasts in one’s brain forever. At least it does mine. I do hope that nothing about the new world we live in, with pandemics and vaccines the subject of so much of our lives, changes tha t which makes Taos special. There are many rooms to love and I hope you can find one or more that talk to you. Harvey Blaustein is a retired attorney and local real estate broker.
