Another great happy hour at the only gay members only club in Albuquerque. Guests are welcome the 3rd Friday of the month. It’s a great opportunity to meet other people and maybe join the club.

NOTE: It’s easy to join a Yahoo Group. Just visit Yahoo.com, go to the Groups section, look up the group you want to join and send in a request.

We have now worked with Talia three times as a realtor and we could not be more impressed! We never want to use another realtor as Talia is knowledgeable, ethical, patient, flexible and helpful!She’s kind and straightfoward, she tells you exactly what you need to know when navigating the market and the sometimes maddening process of buying a house. She is completely on top of things, so I never had to worry that something wasn’t getting done or was late. She makes buying a house so easy, she will at times actually hold your hand, if you need it! She’s also fun to be around which is so important for those many hours of looking and looking at houses and properties.
