Past, present, fu­ture


This is the first of a se­ries of ar­ti­cles ex­plor­ing the past, present, and fu­ture of our City Dif­fer­ent, beg­ging the ques­tion, “Howare we go­ing to leave Santa Fe for fu­ture gen­er­a­tions to en­joy job op­por­tu­ni­ties and the qual­ity of life unique to our area”?

What­makes this city dy­namic? What makes our City Dif­fer­ent? Santa Fe is a his­tory-rich, world-renowned epi­cen­ter for art, ar­chi­tec­ture, cul­ture, cui­sine, and out­door ad­ven­ture. It is also the home of 84,000 in­di­vid­u­als, each with his or her own per­spec­tive and role. In this se­ries, Santa Fe Reál, wewill ex­plore the in­tri­ca­cies of our beloved city and sur­round­ings, its his­tor­i­cal roots, its ever-evolv­ing re­al­ity, and how each of us can be in­volved in de­vel­op­ing its fu­ture.

Most cities are de­fined by their ma­jor em­ploy­ers. The lead­ing em­ploy­ers in Santa Fe, as the state cap­i­tal and cul­tural des­ti­na­tion, are gov­ern­ment and com­bined hos­pi­tal­ity in­dus­try ser­vices, but also grow­ing start-up tech com­pa­nies, ex­pand­ing med­i­cal ser­vices, and a ro­bust film in­dus­try. Cur­rently many par­ents en­cour­age their chil­dren to leave Santa Fe. This is hugely neg­a­tive. As a com­mu­nity, let’s turn this around. Among the top­ics we will ex­plore:

• Work force hous­ing and hous­ing choices

• Job op­por­tu­ni­ties for the gen­er­a­tions, and vir­tual work­places

• Bal­anc­ing his­toric preser­va­tion with green build­ing

• Gov­ern­ment and pri­vate de­vel­op­ment ini­tia­tives, for ex­am­ple Me­owWolf • Out­door ad­ven­tures and preser­va­tion • Com­mu­nity in­volve­ment and phi­lan­thropy • Multi-gen­er­a­tion hous­ing • Our ex­pand­ing Santa Fe Air­port • So­lar and re­new­able en­ergy • Ren­o­va­tion vs. new con­struc­tion As real-es­tate bro­kers, we in­ter­act with many dif­fer­ent groups of buy­ers and sell­ers. This ar­ti­cle in­tro­duces Mil­len­ni­als— their needs, con­tri­bu­tions, and as­pi­ra­tions, and how they bal­ance bud­get and life-style in the search for work-force hous­ing, whether pur­chased or rented.

The Mil­len­nial gen­er­a­tion, those born be­tween 1980 and 2000, is de­fined by their com­ing of age at the turn of the cen­tury, but more poignantly by the in­ter­net be­ing in­tro­duced in their for­ma­tive ed­u­ca­tion. One of the bet­ter-known Mil­len­ni­als is Mark Zucker­berg, co-founder of Face­book, de­vel­op­ing a so­cial plat­form that has con­nected all gen­er­a­tions. Bring­ing the fo­cus closer to home, we will fea­ture prom­i­nent, suc­cess­ful Mil­len­ni­als in our com­mu­nity in fu­ture ar­ti­cles.

Mil­len­ni­als are the first gen­er­a­tion to em­brace the tech­no­log­i­cal world. As the world grows more global, peo­ple be­come more con­nected, but they also yearn for a sense of unique con­tri­bu­tion to their com­mu­nity. This is what mo­ti­vates in­di­vid­u­als to great­ness.

We want to hear from you what is im­por­tant to you. What are you in­ter­ested in learn­ing about?

We bring a new look to real es­tate to help in­te­grate you within our com­mu­nity.
