Douglas Snyder

Associate Broker - Office Manager
Ninja Selling

Douglas Snyder was born in Silver City, and his family has made their home there for over 70 years. He can speak first-hand about how nurturing the Silver City community can be. Doug’s formative experiences as a young student in Silver City schools’ music programs planted the seed for him to become a musician.


Douglas attended New Mexico State University in Las Cruces and completed his BA degree in German at the University of Texas at Austin. His original plan was to teach, but on the advice of a career counselor, he decided instead to take the plunge and live full-time as a professional musician. Douglas is proud to say he made a good living playing, writing, and teaching music for over ten years. He toured the country, recorded five albums that sold well, and collaborated with high caliber musical acts such as Chris Donohue (Emmylou Harris), Doug Fieger (The Knack), and Terry Bozzio (Frank Zappa, Missing Persons).


After a time, Douglas heard the call to live a more peaceful life and he knew exactly where that call was coming from. He moved back home to Silver City, where his parents are now his neighbors, and he now lives happily in what was once his grandmother’s house. At first, he made a living using the skills his years in the music business had given him – his knowledge of tech, and his skill and experience as a performer and as a teacher. Then, Hacienda Realty’s Qualifying Broker Blake Farley became one of his music students, and she quickly saw Douglas’ potential as a real estate broker. She knew his deep roots in Silver City and his knowledge of the Grant County community would be invaluable assets. He loves his new career.


As a trained musician, Douglas understands and values good ensemble work, so it makes sense that what he loves most about real estate is good teamwork – between real estate brokers, between brokers and their clients, and most importantly, between buyer and seller. He is proud to be a team member in the #1 real estate brokerage firm in Grant County / Silver City, New Mexico. He loves the way Hacienda Realty supports its brokers and clients, and how it conducts its business with honesty and integrity.


You’ll love Douglas’ creativity, his ability to listen, and his instinct for harmony. You’ll especially appreciate his careful, patient client service, and how he can figure out what seems complex. He enjoys his career as a real estate broker because in the real estate business, no two days are ever the same. Above all, he loves that he gets to help people come home to Silver City, because he knows the way.
