Chad Akenhead - REALTOR®
Favorite thing about NM? I love the diverse landscapes, culture, amazing weather, and great food. You can literally drive 30 minutes in any direction and be in a completely different part of the state! The sunsets and local craft beer are an added bonus. I'm going to have to say I love red and green equally! Depending on the food, they both have their place! Hobbies/ Passions: I have been an avid fly fisherman for the past 13 years. Backpacking, camping, and metal detecting are a few of my other hobbies. Why did you become a broker? I became a broker because I have always had a passion for residential real estate in my city. I love helping the community and being involved in people’s important life decisions! Helping an individual or a family find a forever home and create lifelong memories is a very rewarding part of this job. I also love helping people sell their homes, so they can start another life journey and making the process as stress-free as possible. I am also a local firefighter/EMT which has allowed me to create amazing relationships with the people of Albuquerque and surrounding areas. These relationships allow me to help my close friends and family achieve their real estate dreams. My specialties consist of residential home sales and purchases. Short sales and foreclosures. I have lived in the Abq area for the past 30 years and have extensive knowledge pertaining to the NE heights, North Valley, Rio Rancho, Tijeras (east mountains), and Corrals areas. Something people don't know about you? I worked for a candle company in New Mexico as a "chandler". Creating custom sand-cast candles and everything in between! Why did you choose ROC Real Estate Partners? I chose ROC Real Estate Partners because I was looking for a young, motivated Real Estate Team. A team that valued building relationships with the people that they help. I wanted that close "family" feel in my brokerage where everyone works together to accomplish customer satisfaction. This team truly is amazing when it comes to customer service and making the home buying/selling process virtually painless!
