You have just taken the first step to buying your new home—congratulations! There is hardly a way to describe the amazing feeling that comes with waking up in a brand new home, realizing that the walk-throughs, inspections, paperwork, and all the other work related to home buying is done, and that the home is finally yours!

Regrettably, the process of buying a home can scare off many individuals and families from realizing this American dream. While relocating can be stressful, having a knowledgeable, local real estate broker, like myself, can make home buying a very rewarding experience, turning an American dream into an American reality. Feel free to browse my website for a home or property that you are interested in, or give me a call and I can help with the search!

As a licensed REALTOR®, I am able to offer the greater Albuquerque area, and the Placitas, NM communities a higher level of home selling expertise than other real estate professionals that have not received a REALTOR® designation.

Part of my real estate sales duties as your broker will be to market your home by adding it to the regional Multiple Listing Service (MLS), a database of properties that brokers use to list homes that are for sale. My strategies also include leveraging technology, the Internet, and my broker network to market your home locally, and all across the country. Once an interested buyer contacts me, I will consult with you, and will personally handle the negotiations on your behalf.

Artsy… Smartsy.


Placitas is nothing less than an Arts Mecca! A large number of our residents are involved in various forms of arts and crafts, and proudly display their art at the many art venues in Placitas and our neighboring town of Bernalillo. In the spirit of our artistic community, the Placitas Community Center offers ongoing art classes for all ages!

This popular event is the weekend before Thanksgiving, featuring NM artists and craftspeople. It’s housed at the Placitas Elementary School, Anasazi Winery, and the Big Tent. There is also a group of Placitas Only Artists that exhibit at Clear Light Cedar Company the same weekend. All venues are in the Historic Village of Placitas.

Happy Clients!



There were a lot of complications in this closing. If it were not for Sandy Poling “going the extra mile,” it might not have happened in a good time frame. She was a wizard at solving problems, and as tenacious as a little bulldog about getting the thing done. Thank you, Sandy, for making an extremely stressful time for me a little more bearable.

Sandy is a gemstone in our community! It’s frustrating for many to see the influx of those whom have no heartfelt investment in the area, and see real estate exclusively as a for profit industry. Sandy has been here for decades, and as a result is truly rooted to the heart of our community’s history and clearly committed to its future. I selected her specifically for this reason, and she did not let me down. This was not a big sale for her (hardly) and yet I know without a doubt that I was treated no differently than a high-dollar client. Heart matters. Community matters. And Sandy epitomizes both.

We are so very glad we had Sandy as our Agent. She always had our best interest in mind. She always encouraged us when we were not encouraged. She’s smart and told us all we needed to know about selling our house. She was upfront with us. She would call us a lot with any information we needed to know. She was behind us all the way. We love her! And I tell all my friends about her and La Puerta. You all really work for your customers. Thank you, Sandy, for all your hard work to sell our “former” house. Keep up the Good Work.

– Mickey & Mary Johnson


Sandy was wonderful to work with. Bill and I enjoyed her professionalism and interest in our home search. We very much wanted to buy and chose before Christmas — a mere two weeks — and Sandy did it!! She excels at all levels of the real estate business. Many, many thanks to Sandy!

– Bill & Carolyn
