In that time period, she has become one of the highest producers in the city and has been ranked as one of the Top 5 Santa Fe Realtors for the last 5 years. She is known for her focus, dedication and expertise in the field.
Stephanie is a naturally self-driven person and has great passion for giving exceptional service and creating results. Working with Stephanie is an exciting experience and one that is packed with honesty, humor and momentum. When working with Buyers, she understands how competitive the Santa Fe market has become and is masterful regarding negotiations and multiple bidding situations. When representing Sellers, she is known for her creative marketing, exceptional communication skills and uses her knowledge of the market to price effectively but aggressively.
She began her very interesting life in the government suburbs of Washington, D.C. As a young girl, she developed incredible discipline while training for years as a competitive figure skater. As a teenager, her focus turned towards the theater/arts, eventually getting a BA in theatre from Indiana University and becoming a world-touring musical theatre actress. Both of these disciplines took courage, focus and inner strength. She has carried these attributes into her real estate career and it is evident in her performance.
As Stephanie’s success has magnified, she has expanded her “One-woman-show” to a team! Team Duran/King! Her business partner of 4 years, Juli King, brings an added set of skills and another layer of support. Amanda Morris has also joined Team Duran/King as their full-time, licensed assistant. Kathy Martinez is the team’s transaction coordinator and keeps all contracts moving in a timely manner. Stephanie credits a large part of her success to this incredible team.
Stephanie first fell in love with Santa Fe in 1994. From Day #1 in Santa Fe, she knew that she had found ‘home’. 25 years later, she is still in awe of Santa Fe’s ever-present beauty, diverse community, incredible art/music/food scene and appreciates its very accessible mountain trails for skiing, mountain biking, and hiking! She believes that The City Different absolutely has something for everyone.
