Keith Dowell, originally from Stephenville, TX has lived in Taos Ski Valley, NM since 1996. Prior to moving to New Mexico Keith was successful in managing various hotels in Texas, New Mexico, and California. The last hotel he managed was the Squaw Valley Inn at the Squaw Valley Ski Area in California. In 1996 Keith purchased the Powderhorn Hotel located in TSV and ran it successfully for 10 years. In 2004 Keith obtained his Qualifying Broker’s License and started Taos Ski Valley Realty so he could more effectively execute his plans to convert the Powderhorn from a hotel to condominiums which he did in 2006. This was one of the first conversions of its type in Taos Ski Valley. In addition to all of this Keith found that many of his neighbors and friends with property in the area asked if he could help them in their development plans or act as their broker in the sale of their properties. Since then Keith has become extremely knowledgeable about real estate in the area with an expertise in condominium transactions. As a resident and business leader in Taos Ski Valley and as the previous President of the Taos Ski Valley Chamber of Commerce (nine years), Keith has built strong relationships with many leaders in the area. These relationships continue to prove very valuable as Keith provides brokerage services to both buyers and sellers and utilizes his local knowledge to successfully execute real estate transactions for his clients. In 2016, Keith along with his business partner Martin Molz, became a License Partner in Engel & Völkers Taos part of the larger Engel & Völkers network in the United States and 33 countries around the world. Keith is a graduate of Tarleton State University, part of the Texas A&M system, with a BBA in marketing.
