What Bert Has To Say About Albuquerque Metro Area

Albuquerque, located at the crossroads of the state’s travel routes, is the largest city in New Mexico. Clear, sunny, dry days; an attractive mountain landscape; and a mostly healthy economy attract new residents from around the country. Not only is the physical climate excellent, but the area also has a favorable tax climate, and the state’s fiscal health is among the best in the country. The area is a center for the high-tech industry and especially research-oriented activities, centered on the giant Sandia Laboratories nuclear research facility south of town. There are over 100 mostly small- and medium-size tech related companies, and the area has experienced some vulnerability to tech industry economic cycles.
