Max Sanchez



is the type of person who is energized by action and doesn't believe in wasting time. In those rare times when Max isn't working, you won't find him sitting around watching TV. Instead, you'll find him outdoors, swimming, taking photographs, or rising early for one of his favorite hobbies, fresh and salt water fly fishing.

HE APPROACHES his career with the same intensity. As one of the top-producing Realtors® in Albuquerque, Max is a dedicated professional. He usually arrives at the office before other people have had their first cup of coffee and leaves work long after the typical 9-to-5 day is over. But what drives Max to work so hard is more than mere habit -- Max is truly committed to helping others achieve their goals.

MAX SANCHEZ & TARPONMY CLIENTS don't hire me to sit behind a desk all day and talk about real estate," he says. "They hire me to go out and get the job done for them. That's a responsibility I take very seriously." Max's dedication to this community and to those who live here goes deep. For him, Albuquerque is more than just a place to live, it's a way of life. That's why it's so gratifying to him to help others achieve their home buying and selling dreams.

FOR OVER 40 YEARS Max has been doing just that. His dedication, knowledge,and expertise have earned him the respect of other industry professionals. But it's his personal approach and true commitment to putting his clients' needs first that keep them coming back to him again and again.

"MY PHILOSOPHY is simple," he says. "I really treat my clients the way I would want to be treated myself.. Simple, yes. But for Max, the basics --professionalism, integrity, and a straightforward commitment to putting his clients' needs first -- are what matter most. He sees himself not as a salesperson, but as a counselor. He provides the facts and information his clients need to make the wisest decision about their most important investment -- their homes.

WHEN YOU'RE READY, to buy or sell, call on the professional who doesn't rest until you get the results you need.
