The Neighborhoods of Santa Fe

Oshara Village – The Neighborhoods of Santa Fe, New Mexico

Oshara Village – The Neighborhoods of Santa Fe, New Mexico

This morning, I toured the new, energy efficient homes in Oshara Village. This neighborhood is located next to the Santa Fe Community College and close to the mall we call Santa Fe Place, the rodeo grounds and the Genoveva Chavez CommunityCenter.

It is a 470 acre mixed-use, “walk able” community and a template of New Urbanism for “green and sustainable” living. The Oshara Flea Market is every Sunday from 9:00-2:00, weather permitting, and it rivals the old Tesuque Flea Market in its size and offerings and fun.



Michael’s Minute of Real Estate

It’s getting to be harvest time here in the Rockies and I’m reminded that it’s not what we have but what we enjoy that constitutes our abundance.  These next three months are a sprint to the finish and a time to reap the rewards of tending and weeding.   Prices are adjusted, homes are handsomely staged, interest rates are unbelievably low and it’s the most beautiful season in Santa Fe.
