Deb's Home Recycling (aka Residential Resale)

By
Real Estate Agent - Realty Pro Albuquerque
My blog is as much about a philosophy of life and living as it is about real estate as a business. E.F. Shumacher subtitled his book SMALL IS BEAUTIFUL "Economics as if People Mattered" In the real estate industry we realize that people matter and that where they live matters. We now also have a larger responsiblity, I believe, to get them to consider HOW they live. Everyone in the developed world using less energy and resources makes it possible for those who have access to neither to experience a better life and to make the difference between their being able to having a roof overhead or not or for their children to eat or not.

For anyone thinking about moving to the Land of Enchantment, I have good news for you. Albuquerque is a city working hard to be green (I think the mayor is trying to get into a competition with Rocky Anderson up in Salt Lake City).

 I went to a meet-up group today at one of our two remaining independent bookstores. There is a group that meets there every Saturday afternoon to knit and/or crochet. In the course of the conversation one of the other group members who is the same age as I am made a comment about how the last ti...

  I've decided I love working with relocation buyers. Usually, they are looking because they really need to buy now. The actually listen when you explain things to them about the town or neighborhood--unless they have lived in the area before and then they want to know what is the same and what h...

It's Earth Day 2008. Clearly, we need to make it at least Earth month but I guess we will take what we can get in terms of focusing people's attention. I was astounded to read about the lake in Greenland that disappeared in 90 minutes. The entire lake drained through the glacial ice in about nine...

Okay, here is one for the casual fans among us and the fashion mavens too. Same TIME magazine article as the last tips:1. Wear "vintage" clothing. What they suggest is not just hitting the Goodwill (although there are those among us who love to do just that) but also to donate your clothes to org...

 Just reread an article about some of the things that make New York City one of the "greenest" cities in the country. There isn't a lot of new construction there. There is great public transportation and driving is a nightmare--even the mayor takes public transit to work.  Most people do not live...

 We all feel overwhelmed or discouraged at some time in our lives. If we try to live in awareness, we can see these moments approaching and do something creative before we are driven to change simply because it is too painful to remain stuck where we are.I recently attended a business development...

 I was musing the other day about small space living. A friend who lived i a 25 foot fifth wheel trailer for a couple of years pointed out that it really felt like he had much more space because he spent so much time outdoors. Another small house (650 square feet) dweller said that just having a ...
