I enjoy introducing Albuquerque's unique and vibrant qualities to the world. Albuquerque's homes are as diverse as it's culture, and I love helping people discover the wonderful lifestyle that having a home in Albuquerque affords. Welcome to my blog!
I spent the last few days cleaning out my home office/office location and my kitchen pantry. All totally related items for me. I found something super simple and useful to help me stay organized.   I wear a bluetooth headset and keep my iPhone connected.  As I'm clearing out a drawer, or going th...

Part of being a good real estate practitioner is to KNOW YOUR RULES.   While I sold Albuquerque real estate for years without having served on a committee or visiting a Board meeting, I was probably walking a tight rope when it came to properly practicing real estate. Some mistakes that I see eve...

On January 30, 2009, the Public Service Company of New Mexico divested itself from the gas service portion of the utilities service, and now you are the unfortunate customer of Gas Company of New Mexico. Please know that you retain the same account number for BOTH services, even tho they are now ...
Good news, just in! Stats for home sales: Home resales posted the largest monthly increase in at least 10 years last month as first-time buyers rushed to take advantage of a tax credit that expires this fall. This is the fourth straight increase on home sales.  Although the median price is down, ...
Amazing how different each appraisal "issue" is turning out to be. In one instance, for instance, yesterday had an appraisal done on a 2 bedroom property, unique for the area.  Appraiser saw the subject property at 11:00, and the appraisal was finished and delivered back to lender, meeting purcha...
