Finding a home in Los Alamos is hard.

Finding a great realtor is just as hard. Trung took the time and made the drive (multiple times) to Los Alamos to help us find our home. His professionalism and loyalty to his customer is impeccable. It made our home buying experience easy and stress free. I would highly recommend him to anyone who is looking to purchase a home.

He took the time to help find property while be knowledgeable about the pros and cons in the area. He assisted me with researching property requirements and people that would begin the building process. I would highly recommend him as he is professional and most importantly available.

Sandy was such a pleasure to work with and we were so grateful for all of her help.

My husband and I recently moved from Colorado and Sandy came recommended to us from family. We were not familiar with many of the surrounding Santa Fe areas and Sandy was willing to show us neighborhood after neighborhood and give insight which was extremely helpful. What my husband and I appreciated most about Sandy was her professionalism, kindness and knowledge. We felt very confident having her alongside us in this process. And we never once felt pressure from Sandy, which we really appreciated! After working with Sandy for about two months, we purchased a beautiful piece of land and studio in Glorieta and couldn’t be happier with our decision. Sandy worked quickly and efficiently to make this deal happen and we’re forever grateful for that. We highly recommend Sandy as we know she will assist you in finding the right place!

Trung has been a true professional and a man of his word.

He has always made us feel like we were his top priority and never wavered.

We first learned about Sandra through her successful sales in our rural development between San Marcos and Cerrillos, and we are very happy to have met her.

She first helped us sell our home in that rural neighborhood; her services included working with an existing tenant, prepping the home for showings, and selling it within a week of listing. We began a search for a new home and immediately turned to Sandra again for a fun, easily managed, adventure over several months looking at homes from Lamy to Los Dos and many in between. She easily worked with our undefined goals and helped us see opportunities while refining those goals. Once we purchased a new home, we again engaged Sandra to sell our townhome in South Capital. The sale went swiftly and smoothly. From the initial idea to buy and sell our homes through ensuring all closing and post-closing activities were completed, Sandra fulfilled her role and consistently beat our expectations—three times in less than a year!

On vacation in Santa Fe, we had begun thinking about buying a vacation home.

Within 24 hours of meeting Sandy, she helped us to refine our wish list and had appointments for us to see properties. Not only did Sandy work tirelessly to manage the whole contract process but she went above and beyond by helping us with details not relevant to the sale. You will be in capable hands working with Sandy!

Sondra helped tremendously in selling my atypical mountain home.

Made sure everything happened on schedule and we stayed on top of the important stuff. Wouldn't have happened without her! When you're ready to move, call Sondra.

Jim Girard

Sondra is professional, punctual, and proficient.

She knows her stuff and has a good sixth sense for navigating the real estate waters if things get tricky. She was available whenever we had questions, filed the necessary paperwork promptly, and always kept us up to date about where we were during the buying process. She made my family’s first-time home buying experience a memorable one, and I feel incredibly grateful that she was the realtor to walk us through such a life-changing experience. She’s a gem!

Dudleys, John and Sonja

Trung and his team helped me sell my beautiful home in Albuquerque, NM.

Given all the craziness and complications with my move, Doan & Associates of Equity New Mexico took care of everything with regards to getting our home being prepped for the sale and got it sold in 1 day! It was a totally hands-off and stress-free experience for me, which I highly appreciated. He was always very responsive, transparent and made sure we remain educated on next steps, every step of the way - so he managed our expectations very well! Given that I met Trung through a friend and it was the first time we worked with him, I am SO glad I trusted him and his team with our home sale! They have been fantastic all the way! I would highly recommend Trung, his team and community of contractors! If you want a smooth and easy transaction.

Pat G Trujillo

I am absolutely thrilled that I chose to work with Sondra a second time.

The twists and turns of life sometimes leave a person in a quandary, and this was certainly what happened to me over the last year and a half. I moved to Santa Fe in 2018, after 50 years in Pennsylvania. When I decided to start looking for a realtor, Sondra was recommended to me by a friend. Sondra did a GREAT job helping me find a sweet little condo that was the perfect fit for my needs and my budget. I purchased the condo in Feb 2020 ...and then the governor shut everything down a month later due to covid. There is much I love about living in Santa Fe, but the isolation and changes in employment & recreational activities made it clear to me that I wanted to move back east to be closer to family and friends. Since Sondra had done such a great job for me when I was buying, I called her to discuss my interest in selling. She was honest and transparent about the financial risk of selling only 13 months after purchasing. Sondra did a great job advising me about whether to spend any more money on upgrades to the condo. She tactfully dealt with some challenging buyers and situations. Her communications were always clear and timely. Sondra did a PHENOMENAL job negotiating offers on my behalf, which ended up netting me way above my investment!! This was an unbelievable result! Sondra is an intelligent woman who brings a broad spectrum of life experiences and human understanding to her work. She has an amazing ability to truly listen, tap into her intuition and reflect back to you what she hears and perceives. She knows what she is doing and has a great work ethic. I cannot give enough thanks and praise to Sondra for her knowledge and hard work!

Sharon Sweitzer

Has lived in Albuquerque most of his life and is extremely knowledgeable of the local area.

My family has been working with Sandra Sunderlage for a few years.

We originally met buying a house. From the first time we met we were treated with total respect, her attention was always in our favor and her concerns were always for the clients. We were so impressed with her professionalism and caring attitude we asked her to sell our house. The house was under contract within a week. Her advice prior to putting the house on the market was invaluable. She knew what to fix, upgrade, and when to put it on the market to get the most out of the sale. If we ever buy a house in NM again, she will be our agent.

Tony and Nicole Barsic

When my husband and I retired and moved to Santa Fe, we wanted to quickly started looking for a home to buy.

An acquaintance of ours introduced us to Sandra Sunderlage. We were told she the best broker in town. And they weren’t kidding. Sandra is the hardest working broker we’ve ever worked with. Within a couple of hours of our first phone call, she sent us lots of listings. Clearly she listened carefully to our needs. There wasn’t one house that was out of our budget or inappropriate. We never doubted her sincerity - she really wanted to help us find the perfect place. And she did. If you are, or know someone who is looking for their next home, call Sandra for help. She will not disappoint!

Sondra, You Rock!

While I was born and raised here in Santa Fe, My husband Max and I have been living in Malibu. He was the President of The Cheesecake Factory. Upon his retirement, we moved back to Santa Fe, a couple of years ago. Recently, our son wanted to purchase a home here in Santa Fe to be near us. Living here, we decided to handle the search and facilitate the purchase. Sondra consistently sent us daily updates on what came available. Never pushing, but always putting stuff in front of us to see. She sent us exactly what we had asked to see. Once we made an offer, her work continued to be meticulous, carefully working on every detail of the buying process, setting up the schedules, and giving us dates and times to make sure we did not miss anything. She coordinated and explained every detail throughout the whole process. At closing, she came with us to the escrow office, ensured all details were checked, and always looked out for our best interests. We would highly recommend her to all family and friends.

Alexis and Max Byfuglin

Working with Sondra was an absolute pleasure.

Moving to Santa Fe from Minnesota was stressful, as was the seller's market, but she helped keep us calm & focused. Her dedication to helping us find our 'forever home', and getting all the T's crossed & I's dotted during the negotiation & closing process was more than we could have asked for. Sondra always answered any questions quickly & clearly, & gave us so many extra tips about living in Santa Fe (particularly the Eldorado area). We would recommend her to anyone looking for an agent, and are elated & proud to call her a friend!

Tess Morgan

Always returns calls and is fast at working on all my needs.

John Chavez

“Thank you so much!

I knew you were the right person for the job. You were incredibly professional and made this process much simpler than I anticipated it could possibly be. Thanks again, you’re truly the best!”

Ryan Benhunin

We feel very fortunate to have had Sondra recommended to us as newcomers to the area- many thanks to her for helping us find and purchase our first home in Santa Fe!

Her tireless diligence in assessing our needs and patience with the sales process during these challenging times made the experience a pleasure. Having a trusted liaison working with us made all the difference. Sondra Tudor Santa Fe Real Estate is all we needed to know when shopping for real estate in Santa Fe!

Dave an Lyn Bos

Special thanks to Sondra Tudor for a relentless effort and for fighting furiously for me to get the home I wanted while it was also the home many others wanted.

Today I got my keys. Couldn’t have done it without you. What an amazing person to have in my corner. The All Blacks need you in the scrum because you’re the best fighter there is. If you want to win...you pick Sondra first. Period. Drinks at my bar, Sondra?

Philip Martony

With this note, we want to let you know what a fantastic job Sandy Sunderlage did listing, marketing, and selling our home at 8 Don Jose Loop and how happy we are we chose her to be the Realtor to sell our home.

We’ve sold four homes over the decades (Michigan, California, Michigan, and here) and by far, Sandy is, without a doubt, the best Realtor out of the four. It was refreshing to have a Realtor who told us what we could do, what she could do, not what we or the realtor couldn’t do. It was wonderful to finally have a Realtor who believes in bringing together willing buyers and willing sellers instead of getting between them. Without Sandy’s expertise, her significant experience, and good instincts for rural properties such as ours, we would not have been able to go on the market as all the other agents we’d been in contact with prior to Sandy, disagreed with our proposed listing price and didn’t find much value or have much interest in the outbuilding. …Sandy called us immediately. Her first question was, “Tell me about the outbuilding.” At that moment, we knew we had the right Realtor for our property. She is the only Realtor who expressed any interest or curiosity about the outbuilding or thought there was any value to the outbuilding. Not only did Sandy think our proposed listing price was more than a fair price for the property, she thought the property might be underpriced and recommended listing it higher.

Stan and Sandra Bies

Such an amazing and easy experience to purchase our home from Trung!

I would definitely recommend him to anyone who is interested in purchasing a house for their family. He was always will to go the “extra mile” for us.

Jose Benevides

It was so easy working with Trung over the past 8 months looking for a home in Los Alamos.

This was our first home buying experience, and we were unsure how things would go in this competitive market. We were able to find a home perfect for us in a relatively short time frame, thanks to the diligence of Trung and his team. Trung was extremely helpful and answered all of our questions every step of the way. Communication was excellent, and Trung was very easy to talk to and understand. He is knowledgeable about realistic offers on each property, while making sure we were within our comfort level. We would definitely recommend him and his team for your realty needs!

After a lifetime of involvement with real estate transactions; as individuals, corporate officers and professional fiduciaries, we can say without qualification that Sandra Sunderlage is the most competent and effective Realtor we have ever encountered.

Sandra is persistent, tenacious and hardworking. Sandra’s professional and educational background in design compliments her work as a Realtor and gives her a competitive advantage over others in her field. One outstanding trait is that she listens carefully to what you are seeking and consequently is able to locate a home that meets your criteria rather than what is simply available. This is the essence of ethical selling. In our case, Sandra found a home that exceeded all of our expectations. She worked tirelessly for us for over a year. During the purchase transaction, it was evident that she was a skilled negotiator and zealous advocate, all the while maintaining a cordial and professional demeanor. In our view, her knowledge of the Santa Fe real estate market is exceptional. She understands value as well as price. Sandra is an upbeat person; a delight to work with and always available. Sandra does her own work and does not rely on a cadre of minions to do the work for her, which is often the case with high profile Realtors. If you are interested in results, Sandra is the person you want. Virtually any one would be well served to employ her, either as a buying or listing Realtor.

Paul and Janis Roller

We have had the most blessed and fortuitous first-home buying experience in Santa Fe with Sondra—It could not have gone more smoothly and beautifully!

Even in a crazy market, we were able to make a competitive offer through her sage advice and find the home that was perfect for us—beyond what we imagined. We felt secure that Sondra always had our very best interest at heart and she intuitively grasped our needs and what we were looking for. She brings much heart and interpersonal skills and intuition-- as well as tenacity and focus-- to what she does. She’s a true gem! We are over the moon with how our deal went and with how Sondra guided us every step of the way and was so available, persistent, and “on it” with every detail. We consider her to be a blessing in our lives in finding and securing our very first home in Santa Fe—and a friend for life as well! I’d recommend her without hesitation to anyone looking to buy or sell their home!

The Ferraros

Sondra always gave me information and added confidence to feel sure about moving forward and was never shy about getting what we needed when we needed it to get the job done.

My Santa Fe real estate story started in March of 2021 when I bought my first investment property here. I worked with the listing agent on that one and decided to keep working with him to find another to buy. But after several months of trying and failing to help him understand what it was, I needed and feeling very frustrated, I decided to look for someone that was a better match for me. I had called Sondra months earlier about a listing she had for sale and didn't end up buying that one at the time, but our brief interaction left an impression on me. When it was time to seek out a new agent, she was the person I called. Lucky me! Sondra proved to be the responsive, assertive, straightforward, and generally lovely agent I was looking for! Long story short, a few weeks later and I was buying a second property in Santa Fe. Sondra asked questions, and we talked a lot until she understood what it was I needed in an investment property. She gave me information and added confidence to feel sure about moving forward and was never shy about getting what we needed when we needed it to get the job done. I totally enjoyed working with Sondra and look forward to our next transaction. Or our next lunch or tea outing. (She's also just a really great person to hang out with. 😃)

After 20 years of dealing with Realtors and Property Managers, both professionally and privately, we were very lucky when a Buyer introduced us to Sandra.

It was her diligence that made the deal go smoothly and come to a successful conclusion. Since then, we have used Sandra for all of our real estate needs and will in the future. It is not just her total professionalism that impresses us, but her candid views and sincere advice. Sandra’s total commitment to seeing the job through with grace and style is a pleasure and rare quality in the real estate field.
