Tara Chisum | Owner & Seller Specialist
Known as a straight shooter and an accomplished business owner, I bring a strategic yet personable approach to real estate. 2017 marks my tenth year in Real Estate and the fifth year as owner of Chisum Realty Group. I’m honored to be the top Broker in town and contribute this success to my team based approach. As the Listing Specialist my singular focus is serving, educating and advocating for home sellers. Combining a strong inner drive with a passion for learning, I believe there is always room to improve. A refreshingly straight forward approach, high integrity, and extensive knowledge are keystones to my business. I love all things about the Enchanted Circle and am astounded by the beauty on a daily basis. My thirst for outdoor adventures originated in Angel Fire as a child and is currently fulfilled by skiing, mountain biking, and camping with husband John.
Kate Theisen | Seller Specialist
I work exclusively as an advocate for Sellers. I believe that the best way to assist my clients is through education and data driven strategies.
Jodee Thayer | Operations Manager
“If there’s not a system in place, she’ll create one,” is a common sentiment expressed about me by those I have worked with. Constantly on a quest for understanding and streamlining processes, the Operations Manager role is a natural fit for me. I’m a planner with a practical attitude and have over 25-years of experience in operations and management. I bring to the table expertise in project and process management and strive to continuously improve our systems and processes in order to make every real estate transaction as smooth as possible.
I’m a native New Mexican and have also lived and worked in Europe, Hawaii and Virginia. I earned a Master’s degree in Aeronautical Science while living in Europe and now I call Red River, New Mexico home (since 2010). I am an avid snow-skier and horsewoman. When I have downtime, you’ll most likely find me winding the wonderful trails of the Sangre de Cristo mountains with my horse, Fred.
Lisa Mitchell | Buyer Specialist
I work exclusively with Buyers. My favorite aspect is to educate our clients on market conditions, find the right property to meet their goals, negotiate on their behalf, and facilitate a smooth transaction through closing. I’m proud to be born and raised in Santa Fe, New Mexico. As an Air Force spouse for 27 years, I’ve been fortunate to live, work and travel around the world. I enjoy meeting people and getting involved in the community. I am an active member in Angel Fire Proud, a Village organization that keeps Angel Fire beautiful. I love the Moreno Valley and enjoy spending time fishing at Monte Verde Lake, playing golf at our beautiful mountain golf course, riding motorcycles in the Enchanted Circle and skiing at Angel Fire Resort.
Angelina Romero | Seller Specialist
Angelina is a veteran agent and former Top Producer and REALTOR® of the Year in the East Valley of Phoenix, Arizona office that she worked in. As a Seller Specialist she believes it is her duty to listen to her clients’ objectives so that she can get an in-depth understanding of their desired goals regarding the sale of their property. She works closely with her clients to ensure a smooth transaction so that they can focus on the next step of their lives. She believes in providing 5-Star service to all of her clients and is dedicated to exceeding their expectations. She is also fluent in the Spanish language.
The diversity of Northern New Mexico; its people, landscape, construction and design are what appeals to her in both business and her personal life. She serves on the Board for H.E.A.R.T. of Taos, a non-profit 501(c) 3 organization that helps women, their children and pets avoid homelessness and/or transition into temporary and permanent housing. She and her husband are also Foster Parents. A veteran traveler and Harley rider, she also enjoys camping in and around the National Forests surrounding Taos.
Pat Kroblin | Buyer Specialist
I fell in love with Angel Fire and the Enchanted Circle during my very first trip here and I just had to make it my home-which I did in less than four months! That head-snapping transition would not have been possible without Chisum Realty teamwork and my Buyer Specialist, who had the knowledge and did the research to make it all possible…and she was a pretty good hand holder and counselor at times too! In fact, I was so impressed, I joined the team! I grew up in Iowa and raised my daughter in Tulsa, OK while enjoying careers in radio, event planning, marketing and promotions. I loved my former homes, but now I wake up every morning, open the curtains to these beautiful mountains, and I can’t wait to share my excitement with you and help you to find a home in this enchanted land.
Chasity Bonney | Listing Manager
I am the Listing Manager which means, I gather all the information about your property as well as make sure all the local brokers have everything they need to show your property. I also manage showing instructions and schedule appointments to show your property. You can find me at the front desk at Keller Williams.
I am the “Mom” of the team. I am a very detail-oriented team player. I want to learn and be challenged daily. It is important for me to make sure the job gets done!
I am originally from Mora, New Mexico. My family and I spend our time between Mora and Angel Fire. We have four wonderful children who keep us busy with all their activities such as soccer, Girl Scouts, dance, skiing, fishing, dirt biking and whatever else comes along! We love the mountains and small town life!
Debra Larkin | Closing Coordinator
I’m the Contract-to-Close Manager for Keller Williams Angel Fire. I’m solely focused on making sure your transaction closes while keeping everyone well informed of the progress. As a native New Mexican, the clear, blue skies and Sangre de Cristos Mountains of northern New Mexico are part of my DNA. My husband, Mickey, and I made the Moreno Valley our home in 1973, enabling us to witness the history and evolution of Angel Fire firsthand. I enjoy gardening, camping, walking and hiking with my dog and road trips to blues concerts.
Jim Merritt | Director of Marketing
From photography, videography, to destination marketing strategies, it’s my job to make sure your home looks the best and new buyers are discovering Angel Fire, New Mexico. I’m originally from Wisconsin then attended Middle Tennessee State University, obtaining a B.S. in Production and Technology. I started my career as an audio engineer but quickly gravitated towards the camera. I moved to Colorado in 2009 where started and ran a Video Marketing company, honing my marketing and video production skills. I then found Angel Fire and fell in love with the amazing summer weather, New Mexico culture, abundant activities, breathtaking views, and downhill mountain biking! After 2 successful years as Angel Fire Resort’s Manager of Marketing and Promotion, I moved to Chisum Realty Group to be more hands on with production as well as strategy. My favorite hiking partners are my beautiful blue-eyed wife, daughter and puppy.
Sarah Bryson | Contract-to-Close and Data Specialist
I am here to help you get from contract to close on your property, whether you are a buyer or a seller. I have a Master’s degree in Library and Information Studies, so my strengths are in organization and information dissemination. I moved to Angel Fire in December of 2017 from Tulsa, Oklahoma where I worked in a Census Information Center. I love getting to know this beautiful part of the country – especially hiking with my dog.
