Great experience during a very dark time in my life. Always positive, very dedicated and organized. If you want to get the job done, go with the team at Sachs 5th Real Estate & Auction!

—Todd Butler - (Testimonial to Deanne Watkins)

Let me start by saying Sachs 5th Real Estate and Auction are superior at what they do. After having a death in the Pinatafamily and named executor to settle my parents Estate. I traveled to Belen, NM and called several Estate Companies, they were the only ones to reply and not only did the owner and what I consider her best associate show up, but they handled everything.
Deanne took on the project, and project was putting it lightly! There was a new challenge monthly, weekly, daily, but Deanne handled or assisted me at every turn, and being from another state (Arizona) with assets also in Texas it wasn't easy. Deanne made it seem easy and took a lot of the burden off me. I would highly recommend Deanne to anyone looking to buy, sell, or settle an Estate. She is a true professional and goes well beyond the extra mile…
Thank you Deanne and Lorraine for everything!

—Brandon Montano - (Testimonial to Deanne Watkins)

It was amazing to work with Deanne during the home buying process. She is very responsive and quick to book Brandon Montanoviewings of new homes once they hit the market. She has a great understanding of the Northeast Heights area and had valuable insights on the different neighborhoods we viewed. She is also very professional and isn’t afraid to pick up the phone and call listing agents to learn more information on each property. Deanne is very knowledgeable of the home buying process and answered any questions I had throughout the experience. I ultimately decided to pursue the purchase of land instead of a home, but Deanne continued to go above and beyond in helping me secure the property. She worked fast in submitting an offer and was a great facilitator between all entities involved in the purchase. I have already recommended her to others entering the real estate market and will continue to do so. Deanne was an absolute pleasure and I am very thankful for her help!

- (Testimonial to Deanne Watkins)

All I can say is Wow! Deanne was above and beyond any expectations we ever had. Not only did she allow us to send her address we considered but she also found us numerous listings that were in our check list of things we wanted for our new home. 5 Days after working with her we were under contract with our dream home. She was extremely fast and precise with her paper work and dead line if not always 5 steps ahead of us. Even took the time To take us house to house for days to open houses. Never once felt a nudge of irritation from her, instead excitement and optimism. She was so professional and passionate about real estate. Truly she was heaven sent and a dream to work with. Even our lender said she was very fast and professional. I've heard horror stories from friends who worked with other company’s different agents who did not have the amazing experience we had with Deanne. She communicated proficiently and was very open and honest about everything. Thank you Deanne for finding us out dream home!

— Jessica Lynn Frederick - (Testimonial to Deanne Watkins)


From start to finish, Deanne was integral in the sale of my old home and the purchase of my new one. Deanne sold my house in ONE day for top dollar. The quick sale of my house allowed me to jump into the fire of the “sellers” market. Full blown terror should have overtaken me, but with Deanne walking me through every step it was actually enjoyable.

Deanne is responsive, professional, patient and a heck of a negotiator. The home I purchased was on the market for one day. Literally ONE day. Deanne immediately called and got the first showing time. I was up against multiple other offers, most of which were higher than mine. She presented my offer and single-handedly secured my offer as the accepted offer.

Deanne loves what she does and it shows. My heartfelt thanks for everything you have done.

— M. Rita Jaramillo, MPA - (Testimonial Letter to Lorraine Sachs Garcia)

Just a note to let you know how much I appreciate your hard work these last several months as we worked to sell Bernard Home Soldour family's house located at 603 Bernard Avenue in Belen, NM. It was a process filled with twists and turns for both sellers and buyers. In the end, we were able to complete the process with each of us feeling like we'd gotten the best deal possible. We were especially pleased that our house sold in just nine days and we received the full listing price!

Because selling a house is a complex process, I want to highlight a few areas in which you exceeded the requirements stipulated in our agreement:

1) When I began looking for a Realtor, it was important to me that the person we chose had an appreciation for the house, neighborhood and community. Your immediate assessment told me that you appreciated the qualities of the house and were aware of the sentimental value that it held for our family. You were also aware of the challenges, but were never discouraged. Most importantly, you were confident that you could sell it!

2) Upon learning of the concerns outlined in the inspector's report, you immediately gave me the name of a reputable licensed contractor who could complete the necessary enhancements and repairs. True to your word, he was skilled, flexible and affordable. Your knowledge of the insurance industry was also invaluable to me as I worked to settle a claim for some of the required repairs.

3) Lastly, I appreciated the team approach that you use in your company. You and your team worked seamlessly to provide answers to my questions and address the many details involved in selling our home. This was especially helpful as I was out of town for much of the time. You were my eyes and ears and I appreciated the keen oversight, practical interventions and timely updates.

Thank you again for your outstanding service. Simply said… You are the very best!



— Stella Renteria - (Testimonial Letter to Lorraine Sachs Garcia)

My property was located in Veguita and wasn’t by all means very marketable, since my two story 3,240 sq ft Carson, Veguita New Mexicoproperty was surrounded by homes of different types of construction to mine. Plus, there was a burned down home across the street. I had tried numerous Realtors® with no luck. As soon as I contacted Sachs, Lorraine was very energetic and assured me my house will be sold. “Get ready to move; start packing.” And she was right. Her professionalism and energy was not to be reckoned with. As soon as my house was put on the market I had appointment after appointment to view my house. She always worked with me in scheduling appointments, sometimes three a day. Her acknowledgment of offers and dealing with brokers shined out. She was always looking out for my best interest. As offers started coming in she would go over them with me and would follow up with the brokers. My home sold within 3 months after trying to sell my house for over 5 years. Lorraine is an outstanding Realtor® who really cares and gets to know you and makes you feel comfortable, knowing you have her on your side. I can’t stress enough the wonderful experience I had working with Lorraine and her professionalism, energetic genuine personality she brings to her job. GREAT KNOWLEDGEABLE, PROFESSIONAL, ENERGETIC, CARING PERSON YOU ARE LORRAINE. THANK YOU!!!

— Ed and Jacque Leonard - (Testimonial Letter to Lorraine Sachs Garcia)

When we were ready to sell our house in Belen, New Mexico, I approached Lorraine Sachs Garcia. I Arnold Palmer Testimonialhad known her for a few years through our Toastmasters Club. She was very efficient. She knew what she was doing. She had the house appraised, went through the house with us and gave us ideas of what we might do to improve the house for presentation. Basically, she told us that we didn’t have to do much. She sent in a photographer and quickly listed the home. We only had to show the house a few times before we had a buyer that loved the home and made us a good offer. When we knew it was going to be a VA loan, we were worried about what they might demand. The couple were so eager to get the house that they made few demands. Lorraine suggested we have the roof looked by our insurance as there had been some minor hail damage. The buyers did not ask this of us, but Lorraine suggested we be proactive and do it anyway. It turned out that our insurance agreed that the roof did need to be replaced. Lorraine knew a roofer who could complete the job before the close of escrow. That job was completed the day before we closed. Often when people want things to happen in a tight time frame, whatever can go wrong does. In our case, whatever could go right, did. It was a faith building experience.
