Welcome to Albuquerque, NM

Albuquerque, NM, located in the north central part of the state, is a high desert town with high standards. Founded as most southwestern towns were—by 18th century Spanish colonialists—Albuquerque began as a small farming community and military outpost. The town was organized in a common Spanish village pattern with a community plaza in the center, and a church, government buildings, and homes surrounding it. Albuquerque’s central plaza, now referred to as “Old Town,” has actually survived over the centuries, and serves the public as a museum, center of commerce, and cultural area.

One of Albuquerque’s characteristics that make it so unique is its Spanish, Native American, and Mexican heritage mixed with the cool style of the “Old West.” Add a little modern innovation and urban flavor and you get a city that appeals to just about anyone. The real estate in Albuquerque is no different; from high class desert retreats to old town historic homes, the city has it all.
