Does anyone know of any real estate agents who are specializing in helping folks find liveable property and/or homes in safe haven type areas? We live in Fort Worth and would be interested in information for Texas, New Mexico, Oklahoma, and Colorado.

Yes, John. I spent 32 years in many facets of the real estate business in Southern California. I am quickly assembling information from several 'safe' areas, and will be happy to share this with anyone. This will include referrals to brokers or local folks in these areas who 'know the score'. My wife, son and I are selling our home and moving, hopefully by September. A sad (and emotional) state of affairs, but I have concluded after more than a year of research, that the risks involved in staying in a densely-populated area are simply too great. Giles Kavanagh

Please share any safe areas, especially in Texas.

I have 115 acres of land available in a rural northern Arkansas county. Land has water access due to a sizable river. Half of the land is pasture, and there is some timber also. Sale price is $1,150 per acre. If anyone is interested, please call (501) 745-8725 and leave a message. This property would be great for riding out the Y2K storm that's brewing.

John, I am the broker for Northern New Mexico Real Estate in Chama, NM. We are located 2 hours north of Santa Fe and 2 hours west of Taos. We own a 10,000 acres ranch of which we are marketing smaller sites. I just finished writing a contract for 40 acres of our ranch to a Doctor from Ft. Worth for a Y2K safe haven. He feels we have the perfect area. Please check out our site at www.nnmre.com to see pictures and area information. Please feel free to e-mail any questions.
