What People Are Saying About Brian

by Ray Gutierrez on Casa Encatada Realty - Brian Stenum
Bought Land in Taos

I worked with Brian Stenum for over three years looking for real estate. Brian showed me many homes and was always helpful with any questions I had. I have worked with over five other different realtors and Brian is the only one who did not pressure me into buying anything unless I wanted it. Brian was dependable to always answer any questions at any time including weekends, early mornings or late in the evening. If I had any interest in a home all information was gathered for me and I was able to view the home as soon as I wanted. Brian helped me find 2 acres of land in Taos which I purchased and can now build a home. Without Brian's help I would have never been able to purchase land in Taos. My name is Ray Gutierrez born and raised in Taos, NM and I highly recommend Brian Stenum as your realtor. He is the best at what he does!

Brian is a No-Pressure Guy, which I liked

I bought a chalet in Taos Canyon recently and and viewed many other homes prior to my purchase.

Brian was no-pressure, amicable to showing me the homes I wanted to see, responsive, communicative, a negotiator, and most of all, a great real estate adviser.

Brian earned my trust early-on in the home-buying process. He knew what to do and when to do it (along the timeline starting from offer to close) and is obviously dedicated to the real estate profession.

My uncle had initially recommended Brian and I will recommend Brian to my family and friends. He was always on my side, and by my side as an adviser. I would use him again and again in the future.

Thank you so much Brian for a smooth transaction based on your plethora of experience in the RE industry. Best real estate agent in Taos, if you ask me.

First home purchase in 44 years, Los Cordovas area.

I experienced a certain amount of stress and nervousness in pursuing a home purchase. I did not have a very good idea of what I was looking for. Once I started working with Brian Stenum, I soon found myself more at ease with the process. When I had questions or concerns about various properties and they could not answered on the spot, Brian found the answers I needed to make good and comfortable decisions. When I did find the right place, there are so many steps, the details. Brian provided a list of those items with a projected time line. The closing process went so smooth, I was very impressed. I am in my new home, warm and cozy, and it is due to Brian's quick responsiveness and knowledge of details and process. I would and do recommend Brian to those who ask about my home purchase experience. I can not say enough good things.

Bought and Sold and Bought Again

We again this winter had the good fortune of working with Brian to reach our goal of retiring to Taos. After our prior effort to build our dream home fell through, Brian took the time to learn our needs and wishes to help focus our renewed search effort for either land or a home. He took our list of potential lots and homes and added some of his own suggestions. As always, Brian was prompt, extremely thorough in his preparation and had packets of information available on each location we saw. His comprehensive knowledge of the area and the market really helped us in our evaluation.

As it turns out the last home on his list ticked all the boxes and was perfect. We closed this month. Throughout the offer/acceptance/closing process, Brian was always helpful and his guidance was invaluable as it had been 30 years since we last bought a home! He kept us informed as each milestone was approaching, provided whatever documents were needed and helped us resolve whatever issue came up.

We would highly recommend Brian for your real estate search in the greater Taos area.

Bought and Sold with Brian

We have used Brian several times over the years, most recently with a sale in 2018. Brian was always well prepared and facilitated the transactions diligently and professionally. He made sure all the paperwork was in order and, since we are not local to Taos, made sure everything was available for us to sign in time for closing. During our "scouting" visits, Brian has always been a gracious host and willing to spend whatever time we needed to see available properties. His knowledge of the area and the market has been very helpful as we navigate finding our perfect retirement home in Taos. We will be working with Brian again and highly recommend him.
