What Customers Have to Say about Carrie…

We could not be more happy with how easy Carrie made our move to a new state. She made buying a house easy and walked us through every step of the process.

My property was listed with two other realtors over a period of six years and Carrie sold it in three months. She knows her market and was an absolute pleasure to deal with. I will list other property with her in the future.

Carrie was wonderful to work with. If there was something higher than a “5” of a this rating of 1-5, she would have received it. (Rating of 5 was “excellent” in all criteria.)

We had a very good experience with Carrie. We were First time Home Buyers and she really held our hand through the whole process. We had been searching for a home for over a year, so you can imagine all the homes Carrie had to show us, but she stayed patient with us. She held our hand through the whole process.

I would recommend having Carrie Montoya-Pegg as your realtor. When we knew we were moving out of state, we set up an appointment with her. Carrie is very efficient. Communicates through phone, email, and text regularly regarding how home showings were reviewed. Carrie took over caring for our house inside and outside, since we lived a few states away. She knew who to hire if there were any issues that needed to be fixed. She immediately notified us when the house needed snow removal, lawn mowing or any cleaning. Our house was vacant and sometimes a vacant house does not show as well as a furnished home. Carrie gave us ideas and different options for staging the home.
Carrie is very pleasant and honest realtor. We thank Carrie for all the time she spent taking care of our home and communicating with us regularly.

Carrie Montoya-Pegg was so helpful and receptive with our needs in looking for a home in Los Alamos. She was very detailed in her work once we made our choice which made the process to closing very smooth. We really appreciated that special attention she took in explaining all paperwork in a new state. Not one question was unanswered if when we thought of one. If you are looking for a realtor with patience and understanding while looking for their next home you can rest assure they are in good hands with Carrie and her team at ZIA Reality!

Carrie Montoya-Pegg went beyond the call of duty to get a piece of property sold for me. The property had been for sale for approximately 3 years and Carrie had it sold within months of taking the listing. There were a few issues with it but she stayed the course and helped me get everything settled so the sale could go through. I couldn’t have done it without her and would highly recommend her services to anyone who is looking to sell or buy.
Thanks Carrie for hanging in there.

Carrie is fantastic! She kept us informed and guided us through the entire buying process with ease. The issues that occurred that were within her control were resolved efficiently. Our process took almost a year to find our match. Superior service before, during and after the sale!

My wife and I have been looking for property in Flagstaff, AZ., Durango Co., Pagosa Springs, Co, South Fork, Co., Ft Garland, Co, Crestone, Co. and of course Jemez Springs, NM. We have dealt with many realtors looking at homes at each of these places but we would like to state that of all the realtors that we saw, Carrie was the best. We truly wish that it could have worked out that we found something in Jemez Springs but those things happen. Carrie showed us a lot of properties on the first trip and was there for us when we wanted to check out properties on the second trip. She walked us through the in’s and outs of home buying and really knew what we were looking for. Unfortunately the ideal homes that we wanted to look at the last trip had contracts on them the day before we were to arrive. Carrie still made sure that we were able to see another home that day that the wife and I did not think was big enough but wanted to still take a look at it anyway. She was there even though she knew that there was a slim chance we would buy the small home. She continued suggesting other options and was ready to take us to any home that we could find.
I would recommend Carrie highly as the go to realtor in the Jemez Springs and surrounding areas. She was warm, personable and friendly and we felt as if we were working with a very dear old friend to try to find us a home. If the home we have chosen in Crestone Co doesn’t work out for us, she will be the first one we call to find us a home in Jemez Springs.

Sincerely, Ron and Pam Hooker


Our family was new to the area and Zia Realty Group made our home buying process a success. Carrie Montoya-Pegg facilitated the entire process and made the experience an enjoyable one. We found Carrie to be very knowledgeable about the Los Alamos area, the housing market and the pros and cons of each property that we viewed. She was always available to answer questions promptly. In addition, her support did not end after closing. She has continued to answer questions about the local area and provide recommendations for service and maintenance companies. We are really enjoying our new home and would like to thank Carrie and the Zia Realty Group for their outstanding service. Thank you!

I first met Carrie when I was finishing up my final semester of college. She patiently listened to me as I rambled on about my hopes and dreams of home ownership, and gave me all of the details on the most inexpensive properties in Los Alamos that I thought I might be able to afford. It was at this point that I realized there was something special about Carrie. It was of little consequence to her that I didn’t have much money, or a steady job; She wanted to help me realize my dreams. For that reason, I made plans to look her up when I had graduated and returned to Los Alamos.
Fast forward three months. I had just graduated, was newly employed and ready to take on the world. I got in touch with Carrie, and we began the house hunt in earnest. She guided me through the process of loan application and pre-approvals, which would have been totally overwhelming on my own. She listened to my thoughts on my dream house, and took me on several tours through town to see if we could find it. I would like to note that the time spent driving around was quite fun; Carrie is a great conversationalist, and there was not a dull moment throughout the whole time we spent looking at houses.
Just one short month later, I had finally found the perfect house in White rock. There were inspections to be done; Carrie took care of it. I had questions about the results of the inspections; Carrie sat with me while I talked to the inspector, to make sure everything was as it should be. I was ready to make an offer; Carrie talked me through the pros and cons, and helped me make a deal that was in my best interest. There were issues with the house that needed to be looked at by professionals; Carrie scheduled all of the appointments and met with the contractors when I was unable to make it. When it came time to make an offer, Carrie helped me craft an offer that helped me beat out another interested party while still getting a great deal for myself.
On the last day of our business relationship, Carrie was there to see me sign the closing statements on the house. Another important note here: The lease on the house I was staying in while I was house hunting was cut short by a few days, and Carrie helped me move the closing on my house forward a few days so that I didn’t end up homeless. The process was seamless and I have now spent 6 happy months in my new residence! Since then, I have recommended Carrie to every one of my acquaintances who were looking for houses, and I highly recommend her to you. It will be the best decision of your home buying experience!

Tim Schollenberger, Extremely Happy Homeowner


I’m writing to express how pleased I was with Carrie’s service at Zia Realty Group in assisting me with the purchase my new home last October 2014. Being a first time home buyer, I felt confident in Carrie’s ability and knowledge to assist me in this overwhelming process. Carrie was professional and reliable and made this a pleasant experience for me. I recommend Carrie’s services to others in the future for those who are in need of selling/buying a home.

-Sincerely, Kelly Nasise

“Both Carrie and James showed considerable patience, and gave us a considerable amount of their time. They helped us sort through many houses, to help us find a house that well met our needs.”

Zia Realty Group made our first time buying process a success, we could not have asked for a better team of professionals to work with. Carrie Montoya-Pegg made the entire process seamless.

Our questions, whether by phone, email or in person were answered promptly and we never played the” waiting game”. Carrie made sure we understood the documents we were signing and walked us through each step. We love our new home and we can’t thank Carrie and her team enough for the excellent service they provided and making our home buying process simple and fun. Thank you!!!

-Sincerely, Chris and Jeanette Rondeau


We were very pleased with the time and effort Carrie put into helping us find and purchase our dream. Without Carrie’s help we would have been lost and increasingly frustrated with the purchasing processes. Carrie was very knowledgeable and we couldn’t have asked for a better realtor. Thank you Carrie, once more, for helping us get our home!!!

Carrie Montoya-Pegg helped me achieve something I always wanted – a beautiful home that is just right for me. She has energy, good ideas, wonderful contacts, and incredible attention to detail and organization. She carefully walked me through every piece of paper, patiently answered questions, and worked tirelessly and with great integrity for the sellers and for me to “make it happen.” If you are looking to buy or sell – you need to contact Carrie. Working with her and the Zia Realty Group was a wonderful experience.
