With great experience as a Albuquerque Realtor and servicing all areas in Bernalillo County, I help both buyers and sellers meet their real estate objectives. I have extensive knowledge of each of the communities located in and around Albuquerque, and I will work tirelessly on your behalf to make your next High Desert home buying or North Valley home selling experience a pleasant and successful one.

For sellers, it is my commitment to help sell your home or property in a timely fashion while helping you attain the highest possible price for your real estate. If you are interested in receiving a free home valuation, I encourage you to fill out my free home valuation form.

For buyers looking for homes or other real estate opportunities here in Albuquerque or other surrounding communities, I will work with you to find your ideal home. I will provide you with all of the necessary tools for finding the right property. From free access to search almost all Bernalillo County area homes, to the ability to fill out My Dream Home Finder Form, everything I can possibly provide will be at your service. In addition, once we've narrowed down what you are looking for, we can begin the home showing process so you can get a closer look at the homes that should be a good fit. I help negotiate the best possible deal for my clients with each and every real estate transaction.

Nothing satisfies me more than seeing the smiles that come with a successful real estate transaction. Thanks again for considering me as your Realtor.

I am dedicated to making your Real Estate experience wonderful and carefree. I make a difference in transactions by acting on behalf of the client, listening to a client, providing personal attention, and my commitment to helping you buy or sell . I will help you with all your real estate needs. I serve all areas of Albuquerque, NE and NW and the surrounding areas, including Corrales, Placitas, Rio Rancho.  I specialize in helping customers on deciding where they want to live and determining what is important to them. Whether you are experienced in real estate or are a first time buyer or seller, I want to be your Realtor of choice.

Personal Background
I grew up in Irving Texas. After high school I attended Whittier College located in Whittier California where I met my husband Scot Sauder.  After living and working in the Los Angeles area and the Dallas /Fort Worth metro plex we moved to Albuquerque 20 years ago. We have loved every moment of it. We enjoy spending time outside so the Albuquerque weathersuits us well. Bicycling, 2 horses and 2 corgi's keeps us busy. The mother of two wonderful daughters; Ainsley the sports fanatic who graduated from the University of Alabama and received masters at TEXAS A & M,  to complete an internship at UCONN in the athletic department and now worksfor the University of Pittsburgh in Athletic Equipment. Heather the horse fanatic graduated May 2011 from Furman University in Greenville, South Carolina, received her Masters of Science in Mechanical Enginearing from the University of Wyoming and is currently at Iowa State getting her PHD in Wind Energy research and development; a division of Aerospace Engineering.  Both daughters found colleges by searching on (only kidding). 
Professional Background
I have been working in Real Estate 12 years, and have loved homes and negotiation my entire life.  Serving first time buyers and investors, as well as long time Albuquerque residents.  I know the city of Albuquerque and surrounding areas very well.  I believe there are different areas of town that will meet your interests.  Whether it is UNM area living, Downtown lofts, finding the right schools- public or private, land for animals or a community feel I can help you determine what is important and find it.
In 2012 I formed a Real Estate Team dedicated to helping People. 
Customers Love and Recommend Me!
I recently completed my third major home transaction with Carol Sauder and she is absolutly the finest realtor I have ever worked with.  Since 2002, Carol has represented me twice as a buyer's agent and once as a seller's agent in both roles she worked brilliantly in my best interest.  Because she is a clear communicator and terrific negotiator, I understood my responsibilities and options every step of the way.  Thank you, Carol, for making my long held dream come true.  ~Meg
