Are you a baby boomer or in a category that classifies you as a senior and thinking of relocating? Or retiring? Or both? Make your next place of residence Santa Fe.
I am Anthony Atwell and I am a Senior Residential Specialist and Certified Residential Specialist and I’m ready to serve your lifestyle needs and to field your many questions regarding lifestyle choices in the most beautiful city on Earth — Santa Fe, New Mexico.
Let’s start with one of the main reasons you’ll love living in Santa Fe. It’s the literally endless number of activities. They are as unlimited as the beautiful places to see in the region. Few places on the planet are more fun than Santa Fe, and few places are more serene. The area has a beauty and stillness found almost nowhere else.
Need special financing for your new home? I can help.
Do you have special health care needs or have someone in the family in need of health care. I can help you with doctors, hospitals, alternative care, home care, assisted care, hospice care and more. Some of you will need close access to these to support your daily lifestyle. Others of you don’t need care that close and can live in the area and not necessarily right in Santa Fe. Many beautiful homes can be found within a 20-minute commute of the city.
Many relocating in Santa Fe will move here with a parent and a separate living situation will be required. This is an area I can help you with, too.
Once you find that special home in Santa Fe, the one that is perfect for now, you wonder if it will be right for you when you’re no longer able to get around as you do now. It leads you to question if the home can be prepared for that time of your life. That beautiful home that is perfect for now can be made perfect for then. This, too, is an area of my expertise.
Whatever your needs, I am here. I am your Senior Residential Specialist and my training will help facilitate your changing needs in the Santa Fe real estate marketplace.
First let me help you move to Santa Fe. Once we’re done with that, I’ll give you a tour of the many activities, arts, music and associations in Santa Fe. On this post you’ll also find health help, media information, home remodeling and repair help and more.
