most exciting thing about real estate is finding the right property for
the right buyer", says Lynn Graves, broker and owner of Sun Country
Realty in Roswell, NM.
independent broker for over twenty years, Graves prefers an individual
approach to real estate, consulting with his clients to pinpoint their
specific requirements, then discovering a way to make their dreams come
true. "What I like to do is find out exactly what a person
wants, what they need, and finally, what they can afford. Then I
focus on what we can do to make all those things come together in a property
that works for them."
and raised on the Graves Farm in Roswell, Graves pits his familiarity with
the area into providing clients with the tools necessary to making an
informed and comfortable choice of lifestyle, business, or
investment. "I've been here all my life", he says.
"I know every aspect of Chaves County, every country lane, every area
and neighborhood, good, bad or indifferent.
Graves, with a background in farming, a college degree in animal sciences,
and a long-time commitment to the East Grand Plains Volunteer Fire
Department, believes in giving to the community. He's served as a
member of the Elks Club for 30 years, the Chamber of Commerce, and is past
president of the Roswell Red Coats, the branch of the Chamber that
welcomes all new businesses to the area.
Community awareness touches all aspects of Sun Country Realty's approach
to real estate in Chaves County. Graves takes values, wants, needs,
and economics into consideration at all times. "We have an up
and down economy as oil and gas fluctuates, but the basis here is in
agriculture; that's always stable. We have a steady, slow growth in
this area and that's attractive and comfortable in the long haul."
many realtors, Graves prefers to keep his listings small. "I like to
list a few, sell those, then list some new ones. I don't like to
have more than I can personally give my full attention to at one
time. I'm not in this for the money - I'm in real estate for
adventure of making the deal. It makes me feel great to see a person
connect with a dream."
help those selling their property connect with those dreaming of one,
Graves focuses his advertising to primarily local sources, employing the
resources of the Roswell Daily Record, the Homes and Land brochures
provided by the New Mexico Real Estate Association, the Real Estate
Channel on the Cable One Network, and the Internet.
"A cup of coffee and a friendly chat is probably the best tool I use
in my business", Graves says. So if you're looking for a
