ActiveRain Connection At 35,000 Feet While my wife Debbie was flying back east last week she noticed her flight mate seemed a bit down and out.

My wife explained we are in real estate, owning and operating Albuquerque Homes Realty. Her new flight friend told her they were thinking of selling a Huntsville Alabama home.
