We can help get answers to all your relocation questions.


Morningstar Legacy, the brokerage, was created in 2015 with a specific goal in mind:  To deliver the best possible service to buyers, sellers, landlords and tenants.  We have succeeded in our mission and we are proud to serve the residents of Las Cruces with all of their real estate needs.

The vision for Morningstar Legacy remains steadfast in delivering service with excellence and leaving behind a long trail of satisfied customers.  The reviews are all 5 stars and Erika’s clients are not only surprised by her dedication but by her efforts to go above and beyond the call of duty.

If you have real estate needs such as buying, selling or property management needs please call Erika Okinga and give her the opportunity to interview with you. You will not be disappointed by her outgoing personality, her integrity and her professionalism.

Erika Okinga is a driven perfectionist who lives to deliver the best possible service. Erika the Mom has raised a successful young man, and as a Property Manager she set records managing Casitas owned by investors at Morningstar. Now, Ms. Okinga is the Supervisor of the current property manager, the licensed Broker who has listed single-family homes and Casitas for sale or rent and assisted tenants and buyers find their dream home. Erika has approached each of these opportunities with exactly the same approach: she won’t rest until she has learned the best way to do it and is relaxed only when the required skill sets are mastered.

Delivering Exceptional Service to our Clients

In California, Ms. Okinga worked closely with several real estate appraisers. After moving to Las Cruces, she obtained a New Mexico Real Estate License in 2009 – adding a Qualifying Broker license, and SRS (Seller Representative Specialist) and RENE (Real Estate Negotiation Expert) designations. In 2015, the owners of the 1st Valley real estate group agreed that Ms. Okinga should open a new brokerage; and Morningstar Legacy was launched. Looking back, Erika reflected: “I have been working diligently on building a solid reputation for this business by selectively working with buyers and sellers in and around the Las Cruces area. Along with my sales expertise, I also offer 11 years of experience in property management.”


Her clients agree: “Erika was recommended by a friend. She was easy to work with, helped us hone in on a good selling price, suggested any staging we should do, and presented our house well in all advertising. Bottom line we were under contract in 19 days. She was very organized and make sure everything moved along smoothly to a final sale. I would and have recommended her to some of my friends who are putting their houses up for sale.” And her other reviews on Zillow read very similarly.


Erika has yet to have an unsatisfied client – the result of her drive to provide unparalleled service – and many of her former clients are now good friends. Her Zillow reviews are all 5 stars. When Morningstar Legacy adds the broker(s), they will have a Qualifying Broker who will expect the very best effort from them; and they too will provide the best quality, professional service.
