Why Lise Knouse?

Why Lise Knouse?

I offer a passion for real estate, high integrity, a love of Santa Fe, a keen knowledge of the Santa Fe Real Estate market and excellent negotiating skills to you as a Buyer or Seller. Real Estate is about building a relationship of trust. I take that very seriously and am committed to communicating clearly and regularly with you. Above all, I will respond quickly to your needs and questions.

Whatever I choose to do, I do with passionate commitment, focus and energy. My interest in the arts and spirituality drew me to Santa Fe, with its vivid colors, glowing sunsets and unparalleled light. Every day I fall in love again with the colors, the light and shadows on the mountains, and the crystal clear air of this spectacular high desert.

Always a self starter, I have had a career as a dancer and choreographer, founding and directing a dance company and school. Later, immersing myself in motherhood, I gave birth to four children at home, studied to become a midwife, and am now a 26+ year volunteer with La Leche League. I loved home schooling my children and raised them with classical music and Suzuki violin. The wonderful benefits they experienced with the Suzuki Method inspired me to found and direct the Santa Fe Suzuki Institute for 5 years. Two hundred students and their parents came from all over the world to the Institute each summer. The multi tasking and organizational ability I learned through these pursuits, has been extremely valuable in helping my clients find or sell a home in an efficient and stress free manner. Moving is a major event. My goal is to help make it joyful.

I love music and going to concerts, the opera and talks at the Lensic on interesting subjects. My other interests include basketball games, hiking, skiing, cooking, health, reading, sewing, knitting, yoga and especially visiting with friends at one of Santa Fe’s many wonderful restaurants or cafes.

My interest in architectural design, green building methods, all the nooks and crannies of Santa Fe and a strong desire to serve others led me to Real Estate. Real Estate is a perfect match for my abilities and talents. I am people oriented, love to pull together and organize various aspects of a project and enjoy creative problem solving. Real Estate, for me, is home. Let me help you find or sell yours!

As one of the top producing Realtors in my office, I serve on the company’s Agent Leadership Council which guides the direction of the company. It has also been my honor, to be the 2016 President of the Santa Fe Chapter of the Women’s Council of Realtors.

It is a pleasure and an honor to work every day with and for my wonderful Buyers and Sellers.
