Stephanie Duran has been expertly representing her real estate clients in Santa Fe for the last 18 years. In that time period, she has become one of the highest producers in the city and has been ranked as one of the Top 10 Santa Fe Brokers for the last 8 years. Her expertise is unsurpassed and she is known for her focus, dedication and a unique way of adding levity to the intense home-selling/buying process.
Stephanie is a naturally self-driven person and has great passion for giving exceptional service and creating results. Working with Stephanie is an exciting experience and one that is packed with honesty, humor and momentum. When working with Buyers, she feels that listening is a crucial component to finding her Buyers’ dream home. When representing Sellers, she is known for her creative marketing and uses her knowledge of the market to price effectively but aggressively.
She began her very interesting life in the government suburbs of Washington, D.C. As a young girl, she developed incredible discipline while training for years as a competitive figure skater. As a teenager, her focus turned towards the theater/arts, eventually getting a BA in theatre from Indiana University and becoming a world-touring musical theatre actress. Both of these disciplines took courage, focus and inner strength. She has carried these attributes into her real estate career and it is evident in her performance.
As Stephanie’s success has magnified, she has expanded her “One-woman-show” to a team! Her business partner of 3 years, Juli King, brings an added set of skills and another layer of support. Kathy Martinez is their transaction coordinator and keeps all contracts moving in a timely manner. Stephanie credits a large part of her success to this incredible team.
Barker Realty became an affiliate of Christie’s International Real Estate in 2013! Stephanie has embraced this partnership and successfully utilizes Christie’s powerful marketing machine, its global reach and connection to the art world. In Stephanie’s inventory of listings, any property that is listed above $1M will also be a Christie’s listing.
Stephanie first fell in love with Santa Fe in 1994. She felt that she was finally ‘home’ and has never looked back! Now with 2 beautiful sons, Noah, 19 and Adam, 16, her life has never been more rewarding.
