Meet our Team

Team Duran/King has been one of Santa Fe’s top 5 producing real estate teams for the last 5 years and with a combined 25 years of experience in Santa Fe’s real estate market, they bring incredible value to their clients! Team Members: Stephanie Duran and Juli King/ Lead Partners, Amanda Morris/Licensed Assistant. Representing Buyers: The repercussions of Covid-19 were felt in Santa Fe with a major influx of Buyers. When people realized that they could, for the most part, work from anywhere, the floodgates opened for Santa Fe because of its Southwest mountain/resort town appeal. Due to the lack of available inventory, Team Duran/King had to sharpen their aggressive negotiation and bidding war skills! In 2020, they helped and are helping many buyers realize their dreams of living in Santa Fe and their tenacity and dedication to their Buyers has been proven invaluable. Representing Sellers: Covid-19 brought many challenges for Sellers and Team Duran/King reacted with new marketing strategies: Walk-through, narrated videos, 3-D virtual tours, virtual open houses, the utilization of social media and targeting via social media! Their motto is ‘Energy begets Energy’. They do not wait for the Buyers to happen upon one of their listings, they have a proactive approach and their sold listings for 2020 are a clear indication that their proactive approach works! . Working with Team Duran/King is a proactive and professional experience.

Member of The Master’s Circle

Stephanie Duran has been expertly representing her real estate clients in Santa Fe for the last 20 years. In that time period, she has become one of the highest producers in the city and has been ranked as one of the Top 5 Santa Fe Realtors for the last 5 years. She is known for her focus, dedication and expertise in the field.

Stephanie is a naturally self-driven person and has great passion for giving exceptional service and creating results. Working with Stephanie is an exciting experience and one that is packed with honesty, humor and momentum. When working with Buyers, she understands how competitive the Santa Fe market has become and is masterful regarding negotiations and multiple bidding situations. When representing Sellers, she is known for her creative marketing, exceptional communication skills and uses her knowledge of the market to price effectively but aggressively.

She began her very interesting life in the government suburbs of Washington, D.C. As a young girl, she developed incredible discipline while training for years as a competitive figure skater. As a teenager, her focus turned towards the theater/arts, eventually getting a BA in theatre from Indiana University and becoming a world-touring musical theatre actress. Both of these disciplines took courage, focus and inner strength. She has carried these attributes into her real estate career and it is evident in her performance.

As Stephanie’s success has magnified, she has expanded her “One-woman-show” to a team! Team Duran/King! Her business partner of 4 years, Juli King, brings an added set of skills and another layer of support. Amanda Morris has also joined Team Duran/King as their full-time, licensed assistant. Kathy Martinez is the team’s transaction coordinator and keeps all contracts moving in a timely manner. Stephanie credits a large part of her success to this incredible team.

Stephanie first fell in love with Santa Fe in 1994. From Day #1 in Santa Fe, she knew that she had found ‘home’. 25 years later, she is still in awe of Santa Fe’s ever-present beauty, diverse community, incredible art/music/food scene and appreciates its very accessible mountain trails for skiing, mountain biking, hiking! She believes that the City Different absolutely has something for everyone.

Juli began her journey in Spring, Texas and first fell in love with Santa Fe as a young girl when her family would travel to New Mexico.

For 20+ years, Juli was the manager of the Cantina at La Casa Sena, hiring singers, writing and directing shows and serving as the Events Coordinator for both La Casa Sena and Rio Chama Steakhouse.

Now a Santa Fean for 27 years, Juli can use her knowledge of this beautiful town and her deep ties to the community to help you find your Santa Fe home.

Amanda moved to Santa Fe in 1993. She grew up in a military family and lived in many locations, but when she landed in Santa Fe, she knew she’d finally found her “hometown”. In choosing a career in Real Estate, she follows in her mother’s footsteps, also a very successful real estate agent.

She also has an innate knowledge of Santa Fe, it’s little hidden gems as well as it’s broader appeal as a mecca of art, fine dining and spiritual wellness. She has a great attention to detail and can quickly adapt to any situation, which lends itself to assisting the team with everything from staying on top of contractual deadlines, to online marketing, videography and client relations.
