Real Estate News

Smith Real Estate and Property Management, 505 W. College Ave. in Silver City and with an office in the Mimbres, is growing. In the Silver City office, Smith has added two new associate agents, Mark Kycia and Missy Bunker, in recent months. There's also a noteworthy new sign out front and the whole building is undergoing an extensive facelift to reflect its vitality. In the Mimbres office, Darla Osborn has been added as a new associate broker. Silver City, 538-5373; Mimbres, 536-3870.

Business is good for Garland Real Estate, with an office at 2970 N. Main St. in Las Cruces, another in Alamogordo, and perhaps one opening in Silver City before long. Jaylen Garland recently registered her business in Silver City to do business here, and confirms she's got her eye on the town. "Silver City has always been a place we've wanted to get into. One of my associate brokers, Albert Madrigal, splits his time between here and there (Las Cruces and Silver City). We opened an office in Alamogordo last year and we do a lot of work in Deming, too, so we're kind of Southwest specialists." Garland says she is excited about the Silver City real estate market, and increased activity in the town is what's behind her desire to open a new office in the town in the foreseeable future. 524-7266.

Smaller and better?

It's not your imagination! The width of the Silver City Daily Press has shrunk. In early February, the paper switched to newsprint that produces a paper one full inch narrower, making it the size of the Sun-News. A contact at the Daily Press says the decision was made for a variety of reasons, including price and availability of newsprint plus the move to a new printer, Signature Offset in Las Cruces (which also prints Desert Exposure). Calls to Tina Ely, publisher of the Daily Press, to inquire whether the printing change means the paper will be selling or has sold its own press equipment and what this might mean for jobs at the paper, were not returned. Founded in 1935, with a heritage that goes back to 1873, the Daily Press is one of only a handful of remaining independently owned dailies in the state, and Ely is the third generation in her family to serve as publisher.



Going, going, gone...

Sav-On Drugs, 1306 N. Hudson in Silver City, has gone out of business.

Ditto for High Desert Furniture and Way Out West Decor, 2900 S. Highway 28 in Las Cruces.
