Get to know Bernadette Parnell

As a Santa Fe native with local roots that date back 10 generations, Bernadette “knows Santa Fe”.  She loves showing off her home town and letting folks know just how special the “City Different” truly is.  Her natural enthusiasm and love of her city is evident when she speaks of the Santa Fe of today or that of yesterday. “Not a day goes by”, she says, “that I don’t feel grateful for all that Santa Fe gives to me and how lucky I am to live here”.

She is a former Bank Vice-President with 28 years of financial experience in management, lending, and client care. 

Bernadette entered the field of Real Estate in arguably one of the most challenging times since the Great Depression.  During this time she has steadily grown her knowledge and skills by utilizing her talent and professional expertise in the same easy, friendly, and professional manner she is known for.  The number of Bernadette’s completed sales of homes, land, and commercial property consistently place her among the top 10% of Santa Fe Realtors.

Bernadette is an active member of The Rotary Club of Santa Fe and the Santa Fe Chamber of Commerce.  She is a past member of many local organizations including Santa Fe Kiwanis, and The Santa Fe Fiesta Council. 

Through her past participation in Kiwanis, she helped to build and burn Zozobra, a 50 foot marionette symbolizing Old Man Gloom.  Zozobra was originally designed by local artist, Will Schuster in 1924 and has been burned annually since then to rid the city of any gloom that might befall the “City Different”.

Bernadette is a “rabid” gardener, has been married “forever” to her soul mate, Bob, has 2 adult sons, a granddaughter, and loves cooking and entertaining for friends and family. 

Whether you are looking for views of the most perfect sunset, or the place that makes your heart flutter, Bernadette can help make those dreams a reality.  She will also tell you that one of the best ways to enjoy this beautiful state is from the back of a Harley.
