With over 28 years of experience in the real estate industry, I began as a qualifying Broker in a Family Real Estate Company in the NY, NJ, PA area. I quickly excelled in the business and was the top Broker in that TriState area. I was recruited to a business brokerage company in Maui Hawaii, and ventured into commercial real estate. Since then my expertise includes selling residential and investment property as well as land. I owned and actively managed a survey company in Santa Fe NM for 7 years. Since 2006, I have been a licensed associate Broker in Santa Fe and currently hold a top position in Keller Williams Santa Fe and the multiple listing service.
My focus in the real estate industry is to provide personalized and informed assistance to each of my clients, whether they are buying or selling a home. I recognize that finding the right home or selling a house is a personal journey, and I approach each case with sensitivity and realism. I educate my clients on relative market value and the limitations of this small market. In Santa Fe, there are many micro markets, and I offer customized tours to help clients understand how they can get the most value for their investment.
In addition to my expertise in real estate investment, I provide comprehensive analyses on income-producing property. I believe in helping clients make fully informed decisions and am a great problem solver. My passion for the art of real estate is evident in my work, and I excel in selling properties that other Realtors have failed to sell. I am adept at addressing potential objections and turning them into positive features for the right buyer. I am also an expert in staging and writing about properties.
Outside of real estate, I am passionate about a range of interests, including environmentalism, health and diet, and the arts. I am an accomplished painter and previously drew charcoal and pencil portraits on the Santa Fe plaza for five years. I also have experience in construction and have recently completed a duplex remodel. I provide extended stay rentals that are furnished and include utilities. These rentals are ideal for people who want to spend time in Santa Fe while they are considering moving to the area or shopping for a home.
As a parent of a 23-year-old, I am proud of my passion for education and sent my child to Santa Fe Waldorf School from K-12. In my free time, I enjoy playing the drums, quilting, gardening, and cooking. I am a member of the Santa Fe Quilting Guild and have two Maine Coon cats, as well as a love for dogs.

We first met Anna at an Open House she organized. At that time, we were looking at houses with the idea of purchasing in a couple of years. After a friendly conversation, Anna suggested that she understood our plan and would be happy to show us houses that might meet our desires with no pressure or obligations. Within weeks she found the perfect home for us at which point we decided to change our minds and move forward. In order to realize the purchase, we decided to sell our condo. Thanks to Anna's professional approach and attitude, we ended up closing both transactions within days of each other. Because of Anna's commitment to her clients, she becomes more than just a realtor. She becomes a friend!

Anna Vanderlaan is the consummate real estate agent: knowledgeable, focused, tireless and responsive. We found and closed on our home because of Anna. She simply is the best.

Anna listed a property for me and was very responsive throughout. She was careful to make sure that I understood everything along the way. She was efficient throughout the process, gave me good advice on what needed to be done to get the property ready. She provided advice regarding strategy at each phase of the negotiation process.

Anna was always working to show us houses we had located as well as those she felt we might find attractive. You could not have a better advocate. She made certain that all requirements, legally and for us personally, were meet.

Anna was very professional from the beginning, providing her credentials and track record for sales in the Santa Fe area. She had a clear strategy for selling, demonstrated knowledge of the housing market in my neighborhood, and was responsive to my calls and questions despite her busy schedule. It is no wonder that she came highly recommended to me.

Anna was our buyer's agent for 2 properties within the past 6 months - an investment property and a primary residence. Her experience and deep understanding of variables in the local market were instrumental in finalizing negotiations for both properties. She readily provided local references for inspections, funding options and insurances. I found her to be patient, responsive, respectful and supportive throughout both transactions. Anna is currently acting as listing/seller's agent for our prior primary residence. I would not hesitate to recommend Anna to friends and family interested in buying or selling real estate in Santa Fe, NM.

She has advocated for these two inexperienced sellers far better than we expected or deserved. After our house had been on the market for over a year, she took over and sold it in six days. We've never met in person, but wife and I both love and appreciate her. James T Adams

Anna facilitated the purchase of a short sale for me - not the easiest or fastest option for a real estate purchase - but she saw it through to it's successful end. I would highly recommend Anna Vanderlaan for her pleasant, professional expertise.

After purchasing several lots and a pending home through Anna...we would highly recommend her. She is easy to work with, professional and considers her clients as friends. You can't go wrong with the qualities that she brings to the table as a realtor.

Anna helped us locate a trustworthy plumber and painting crew that performed some necessary facelifting of the property and house prior to being listed. She has been very professional in her approach to us. She is very easy to talk to, and has been a big help to us as we deal with the various issues of being out of town owners trying to sell our property in a slow market.
