Placitas Real Estate

Placitas Real Estate

Who better to explain why Placitas is an excellent place to live than the people of Placitas. For some it is the calmness, for others the closeness to hiking trails. I’m sure most of them would agree that the weather is just perfect, four seasons without harsh extremes.  The views are excellent.  Many homes look north toward the hills and mesas, all the way to the Jemez range and the Sangre de Cristo Mountains north of Santa Fe.
