Pavel has over 40 years of real estate experience and is licensed in 4 states.
Born in Prague, Czechoslovakia, Pavel is multi-lingual, a licensed pilot and certified ski instructor and most importantly Realtor, Builder/Developer. He began his Real Estate and building career in 1973 in Michigan, where he built more than 300 custom homes near Ann Arbor and Detroit. After moving to Southern California, he also practiced real estate and later was employed by J.M. Peters Company, a prestigious Newport Beach-based residential developer of high end homes.
Pavel's extensive knowledge and experience provide a solid foundation for Dreamcatcher Real Estate Companies and Dreamcatcher Building Services, Inc. Now, Dreamcatcher has become the #1 Boutique real estate company with a small but high powered and competent cadre of experienced real estate professionals who frequently outperform the franchised big guys who staff 3 times the number of Realtors.
This can be partly attributed to a unique work philosophy that entails strict emphasis on impeccable service to clients while not solely focusing on the monetary aspect of the business. Pavel’s expertise, coupled with a creative vision of Taos's future, became the driving force behind Pueblo de los Sueños (Pueblo of Dreams), a completed and sold out condominium project on Kit Carson Road. The project's success led to Suenos del Canon Condominiums, Casa Encantada Condominiums and Suenos de la Loma. Dreamcatcher Plaza, Taos's first premier Office suites, is the home of Dreamcatcher Real Estate Co., Inc. and is also the reflection of Pavel's vision for new development.
In 2001, the Mayor of Taos appointed Pavel to the Town of Taos Planning Commission where he is still the Vice-Chair as well as he is a member of the Historical Preservation Commission. These positions serve as the public’s acknowledgment of Pavel's commitment to the preservation and enhancement of the town's uniqueness, and his integrity. Pavel is credited with the highest residential sale to date, ($2,400,000) and with having single-handedly sold "Ski Rio", a 2700 acre Ski Area and snowboarder paradise and The Latir Ranch, a 6000 plus acre ranch and hunting retreat, to date the largest commercial/ranch sales in Taos Co. With such a track record spanning almost 2 decades in Taos, choosing Pavel to represent your real estate objectives is more than just a safe bet that you will receive the highest degree of competence and knowledge of the Taos area real estate market.
In closing, no matter what brings you to Taos, Pavel & Dreamcatcher Real Estate is your first friend ready to not only welcome you but who will deliver while making your experience a joyful journey.
Melody has an accounting and business management background and was a successful business owner, of a security service in Indiana, for over 20 years. She fell for Taos years ago after backpacking, on vacation, in the Sangre de Cristo Mountains and decided to move permanently. It was her home-buying experience here that also prompted a career change. "I knew my new home the minute I saw it. It had the character and feel I was looking for. There are no cookie-cutter homes in Taos; all are unique, with architectural design and construction distinctive to Northern New Mexico.”
As the Vice President of Dreamcatcher Real Estate, Melody manages and directs the company's marketing and brand imaging. She is most proud of her initiative on this recently redesigned and acclaimed website. Seller's and buyers alike appreciate its design, content and functionality. In addition to traditional marketing avenues, Melody is continually researching the best venues in which to market Taos properties. "No longer will an ad in the local paper sell your home. We need to think outside the box and focus on global marketing."
Melody’s enthusiasm for her profession, plus an eye for detail, will make your home-buying or selling experience enjoyable and successful.

BALTAZAR THE GREAT R.I.P.
Once upon a time, I was down on my luck, cold, hungry & really scared. Thru no fault of my own and despite my devilish good looks, I had hit the skids, and it wasn’t long before I ended up in a shelter for the down & out…... Just when I had given up almost all hope, my Mom & Dad saw my cute smiling face on www.petfinder.com .
Now, I am Baltazar the Great! I am top dog at Dreamcatcher Real Estate. Please let my Dad (Pavel Lukes) or my Mom (Melody Lukes) do for YOU what they have done for me…find you a warm inviting shelter..a place to call HOME.
When they do help you find your special home, they will donate $200 to Stray Hearts Animal Shelter in Taos or to the Wildlife Rehabilitation Center to help provide for my brothers and sisters in fur.
We handle each client individually, taking time to learn about your particular needs and your vision of owning or selling property in this extraordinary region. We are licensed in New Mexico and Colorado.

They fell in love with the vast mesas, mountain ranges, rich history and culture, and the unique and beautiful architecture. They knew they were home. Originally from North Carolina, Julia’s professional background is a menagerie of childcare, food service, professional baking, and sustainable agriculture.
When she’s not in the office answering phones and emails relating to Dreamcatcher Real Estate you can find Julia in her studio doing what she does best: designing and creating high quality leather purses and accessories for her company Sissipahaw Leather Co. (www.sissipahawleather.com) that she started back in 2011. In her free time she enjoys exploring the Land of Enchantment, and practicing an Ayurvedic lifestyle paired with Ashtanga yoga.
