High Wire Helicopter Flyer YouTube


I hope you enjoy this YouTube of a crew working on high tension power lines near the Petroglyph National Monument in NW Albuquerque.  

This took place near our home so when I saw the action I grabbed the camera  and enjoyed the skill and precision these guys must live by daily.  No mistakes allowed in their line of work.  I bet the pay is phenomenal and the life insurance just as much so.  The guys on the tower didn't slow their pace at all, it was non stop from the … (57 comments)

And Then It Happened…. An Unexpected Call From John G Johnston

We all have those days when we’re a tad overwhelmed by all the things real estate and life can bring in a day.  Monday was certainly one of those days for me.  My mind was rushing in multiple direction, I had two places to be and the interstate was a mess and I was feeling agitated and  frustrated.
Then it happened!  An unexpected call from my friend and Westcliffe REALTOR® John G. Johnston.   John’s upbeat, laid back persona was just what I needed as a finale … (42 comments)

I took a new listing today in my PJ’s

Yesterday morning was a first for me after 14 years in the real estate business I took a new listing today in my PJ’s.  Now this may be the norm for some but certainly not for me.  I was expecting a slow day and was preparing for a trip with my wife the following day.  I was in my home office buttoning up some details when the doorbell rings, I was expecting a neighbor or a door to door peddler so PJ’s were appropriate.  

When I opened the door it was … (116 comments)

Got NM HUD Realtor®
Have you got a NM HUD Realtor®?  Many of today’s savvy home buyers and real estate investors are taking a serious look at homes made available by the government agency US Department of Housing and Urban Development or HUD.  HUD offers some excellent properties that run the full range of price, area and overall condition.  Many times buyers think of a “HUD” home as a negative or some stereotypical home in shambles or unstable communities.  The fact is a HUD home is simply a property that has been foreclosed on due to an unpaid FHA mortgage. … (27 comments)

Albuquerque Realtor John McCormack Brings Buyer

7215 Sol Poniente NW Albuquerque NM 87120

I received a sign call on a Sunday morning wanting to see one of my listings within 15 minutes.  I told the caller I could be there in 20.  After meeting and showing the home they decided it didn't really fit their needs.  They were going to go looking around some more.
I carefully explained to the home buyers they did not need to drive all over town looking for those For Sale signs.  After explaining how they could simply share with me exactly what … (47 comments)

Do You Need A Realtor When Working With A New Home Builder

Some may think they don’t really need a Realtor® when working with a new home builder.  The truth is you really should use a professional Realtor®.  Builders hire their own personnel who happen to be real estate agents and not always Realtors.  Their sales people represent guess who...the builder.  
You need your own representation to assist you in making certain the custom or planned community home builder meets all contract obligations, time-lines and fulfills promises.  You want to be assured short cuts are not taken, inspections are completed and … (60 comments)

How Do I Find A Good Mortgage Lender In AlbuquerqueMany first time home buyers and even seasoned home buyers may ask “How do I find a good mortgage lender in Albuquerque?”  It’s a great question with a multitude of possible answers.  You might search online, read the home seller magazines, let your fingers do the walking or just call one from those billboards hanging around town.  I’m not necessarily applauding any of these techniques.Finding the best loan officer for you and your specific needs is very important and should not be taken lightly.   One of the best ways to find a … (34 comments)

So what's in a name like John McCormack anyway?

Over the past 50+ years I have enjoyed the same name, yes the same one my parents decided to crown me with although from what I understand it took a few days after delivery to come up with such a unique name like “John”.  I like my name just fine and have no plans on changing it although my wife does call me Mac and my AR friends call me Q.  John is not often misspelled although I have seen is spelled J.O.N maybe for those that didn't fare so well … (72 comments)

This last week I discovered that I have yet another hat to proudly sport in my collection of real estate hats.  I now have a Pest Control Hat!  Indeed I discovered this new hat and talent while taking a second peek at a home with my awesome clients who recently put the home under contract.  The home is vacant and has been for a good while.  During this visit I noticed a “Snap Tail” Lizard adorning the wood floors of the family room.  How how this fierce lizard made his way into the home is beyond me but I do know … (33 comments)
