As a child, my father bought and fixed up properties, then rented them out. An early memory is holding drywall along a stairwell as my father hammered the nails, the taped the seams—it was our house in Upstate NY: a 3-story 1870’s Tudor-style Queen Anne Victorian with a round tower on one side. It had been used as a Skidmore College freshman dormitory; my father bought it and moved our family of six there in the ‘70’s. I’ve marveled at unique and interesting places ever since.
Moving to Albuquerque after college, I’ve lived in all quadrants of the MetroABQ, often zig & zagging through neighborhoods just to see what can be seen. I became a realtor over a decade ago to continue doing what I enjoy.
I am a dedicated seven-days-a-week real estate professional in the top 5% of MetroABQ Realtors–I know and love the greater MetroABQ area. My office is located in Nob Hill near the Big I–-close enough to be anywhere in the city within minutes. I continually seek out the hidden gems in all areas of the city for my buyers, and I am a tireless promoter of all my listings.
My childhood home in Saratoga Springs, NY. The Metro has these types of early 1900’s homes–check out the Huning Highlands and 4th Ward Historic neighborhoods…There is a wonderful ‘Folk Victorian’ property in the Silver Hill Historic Neighborhood–a gorgeous three-story home in a neighborhood with some pretty impressive bungalows, territorial-style and pueblo revival properties.
I contribute to Habitat for Humanity Albuquerque each year by donating over a thousand dollars’ worth of left-over building/home improvement supplies to the Habitat Re/Store, which is sold at a discount, the profits used to help build homes for low-income families in the MetroABQ.
Wild Spirit Wolf Sanctuary is another favorite place in New Mexico. The Wolf Sanctuary rescues displaced, unwanted and un-releasable captive-bred wolves & wolf-dogs, providing permanent lifetime safe sanctuary for them; I sponsor at least two wolves each year and try to visit the sanctuary yearly.
Through Re/Max Select, I support a needy family each year around the Holidays from a local elementary school, providing toys and essential household items to kids and their parents who can’t afford them; this year, a child from a family I sponsored asked only that he receive a pair of shoes…Also through Re/Max, I support the Children’s Miracle Network, which donates time and money to children, providing comfort, treatment and hope to millions of sick kids.
