With years of experience in residential, multifamily, commercial and investment real estate, Elisa Cárdenas brings to the table a proven track record of outside-the-box thinking and championing the most advantageous solutions for her clients. Her strong sales and client service background in residential real estate eventually led her to commercial real estate at Colliers, where she has thrived as a client-relationship specialist in a variety of commercial transactions. As part of the Colliers team, Elisa has worked on transactions across every sector of the market during particularly challenging times and still managed to create and harness opportunities for her clients.

She represents clients outside of New Mexico from coast to coast, combining her love of travel and her love of real estate. Her diverse real estate experience makes her an ideal broker to understand your business’s unique needs and find the right solutions for you.
