About Brian Stenum and Taos Real Estate Info .com
Brian Stenum was raised in the mid-west in Iowa but moved to and has lived in New Mexico since the early 1980’s. He studied engineering in college and worked for most of his career in the high-reliability electronics manufacturing industry in positions like production manager, manufacturing engineering, contracts manager, and vice-president of operations.
The opportunity came up in late 2004 for Brian to take an early retirement from the electronics manufactured industry. Brian invested in several rental properties in the Roswell New Mexico area in early to mid 2005, and decided to pursue schooling to obtain his New Mexico Real Estate broker’s license, which he obtained in December of 2005. Brian worked in real estate in the Albuquerque area throughout 2006 until he and his wife moved to the Taos New Mexico area around the end of September of 2006.
Since moving to Taos, Brian has helped numerous sellers and buyers with the real estate needs. Serving all of Taos County and western Colfax County, including not only the immediate Taos area, but also the communities of Angel Fire, Eagle Nest, Red River, Questa, Penasco, and all areas in between.
Brian prefers to work primarily with buyers looking for a home or a plot of land in the area. He has worked with a wide variety of buyers, from low to high end buyers, from off-grid to high-luxury seeking buyers, from buyers looking for small lots to ones looking for large acreages for their animals. He has worked with buyers who decided to purchase the first and only home they looked at, to buyers who looked at over 50 homes and land parcels before deciding what to buy. Brian is patient with his buyers, and has a penchant for all the details required to get his buyers through their real estate search and purchase processes, as is evidenced in the high rating reviews from his clients.

Brian works as a owner/partner and 1 of 3 Qualifying Brokers at Casa Encantada Realty located at 107 Plaza Garcia STE B, Taos, NM 87571-6256, in the Taos Historic District just north of the center of Taos. The office is set up so that each Qualifying Broker handles all of their own transactions from start to finish, including showing properties, writing up offers for buyers, and coordinating all activities for the buyer from contract signing to closing. This alleviates the issue of trying to find the right person in an office who knows what is going on with a buyer’s transaction, and speeds the communications between all parties with an interest in the transaction.
Brian prides himself on his availability and responsiveness, and he always tries to answer his phone when it rings or to return messages as soon as he receives them. If he doesn’t answer, it’s only because he is either on another call, or he is in a situation where he is unable to answer, such as in a meeting, driving, or with clients. But he will immediately check messages when he is freed up from these situations and he will get right back to you.
