Your series of Old Town Albuquerque was a great idea and well done!!!!  Thanks so much for being our guide!

Posted by DeeDee Riley, Realtor - El Dorado Hills & the Surrounding Areas (Lyon Real Estate - El Dorado Hills CA) over 8 years ago

John -- I concur with DeeDee -- great idea, well done -- and you have shared a lot of things that a normal tour guide might ignore underscoring your worth as the true source for all things Old Town Albuquerque.  Plus once someone falls in love with your city, you are the go-to real estate guy for the entire area.

You are the Q!  What a fine tour guide and as many of us as will be coming to see your lovely city in person, you wil be so busy guiding tours you won't have time for real estate...

Posted by Marge Piwowarski, Phoenix AZ Horse Property, LLC (Phoenix AZ Horse Property) over 8 years ago

Gorgeous photo's of a lovely town!  John, you are definitely the local expert - no wonder you are the real estate professional of choice in Albuquerque!

Folks that knew diddly about New Mexico before your blogs can no longer whine about lack of knowledge. Keep the conveyor belt of local sizzle, wide and handsome, drop dead gorgeous stills coming to breathe life in to your area of the blue and green spinning marble.

Love Albuquerque.  Keep up the good work.  By the way, I sold a "Yard Long" in my antique shop the other day.....and guess where it is headed?  The cross-stitched piece that says, "Home Sweet Home" will be hung on a wall in Albuquerque!

Lovely photography. Makes for a great 'arm-chair' tour of Old Albuquerque. You go above and beyond in showing your attention to detail. You are the man to call for Albuquerque homes for sale!

That mosaic is such a work of art.  You don't see too many of those up here.  Beautiful pictures - you have put Albuquerque on my list of places to visit!

Good afternoon John, please...don't let the tour end.  You should showcase something once a week.  There is so much to see from your beautiful city.  Do some more shots with the chiles.  I love the colors and how they are hung to dry.  Great series and I have enjoyed it so much.
