Veronica Gonzales

I am Veronica Gonzales and after more than 14 years of serving as an Associate Broker in the Albuquerque Metro area, I understand that my business success is attributed to my commitment to providing outstanding customer service to my clients and customers by making their best interest my priority.  I have built my reputation on professionalism, integrity, market knowledge, continuous education and the employment of professionals in the industry to assist me in the marketing and successful closing of each transaction.  

I am experienced in all price ranges and have assisted over 350 families in purchasing and/or selling real estate.  Furthermore, I have demonstrated effective marketing techniques, negotiating skills and achieved sales in the top 10% of our market which has earned me the following designations: "Certified Luxury Home Marketing Specialist" with "The Institute for Luxury Home Marketing", "CRS -Certified Residential Specialist", I am a member of the "ALC" - Agent Leadership Council for Keller Williams in NE Albuquerque and a qualified member in "New Mexico Select" and "Elite 25" Realtors.  I understand that the industry continues to be increasingly internet driven and I am committed to utilizing cutting edge technology and marketing methods to ensure that my clients are receiving the highest standard of service and results that they would expect from a professional real estate broker.

Thank you for this opportunity to earn your business.  I look forward to providing you with the information and resources you need in order to make the important decisions during your real estate transaction.  I have energy, enthusiasm and experience working with Buyers and Sellers, referrals from my colleagues and it would be my pleasure to serve you.


"VERONICA WAS FANTASTIC! Veronica is a "gym friend" of my mom's and I was nervous about using her. Her being in the Elite 25 and me being a first time home buyer in below $150,000 range, I figured I'd treated like some "second class" buyer. NOT SO!!! Up to $350,000 price range in Albuquerque is really hot right now (selling in 24 hours or less), so one has to move fast. She kept on top of all the new listings in my price range, found time in her busy day to see houses I was interested in the same day they listed, several months later, I AM A FIRST TIME HOMEOWNER!! GREAT WORK VERONICA!! " -Brandon D.

From there Ann, her husband and two daughters transitioned to Albuquerque in 1976 and then Corrales in 1979.

Ann, a gregarious, personable person, has divided her time between making people happy with new homes and giving back to her community. "I find it easy to sell the Corrales lifestyle since I enjoy being a part of every phase of it." A past president and board member of Corrales MainStreet Ann co-chaired the Quilt & Wine Fair and chaired the Economic Development Committee.  Ann helped put Corrales on the map as a desirable place to buy a home and live by being named 19th out of the "100 Best Places to Live" by Money Magazine." My two proudest moments were when I received Governor Richardson's 2008 MainStreet Leadership Award and Corrales received the Money Magazine designation."

As Chairman of the Mayor's Comprehensive Plan Review and Revision task force Ann used her real estate background to help draft new ordinances and revise old ones to make the Village a better place in which to live, purchase a home and do business.

The rich history and culture of the Village attracted Ann to be a docent at Casa San Ysidro Museum and the the Old Church where she could demonstrate the educational and cultural aspects that make Corrales such a wonderful place to live.

Along with being involved in business, government and cultural entities of Corrales, Ann also participates in the Kiwanis Club doing service projects for children and the community and networking with business owners.

After spending many fond years in Corrales Ann feels that the Village needs a brokerage with a thorough knowledge of Corrales-the history, terrain, culture, traditions and ambitions. "No one knows or can sell Corrales better than Ann Taylor."

Ann is a former director of the GAAR Board of Directors and a graduate of GAAR's Leadership Program. She has served as a Sales Manager for several builder-developers and presently specializes in residential and land sales.

"I am a customer focused Realtor dedicated to achieving results and providing exceptional service. 90%  of my business comes from happy past customers and friends who respect my ethics, experience and dedication. If you are in the market to buy or sell a home, I will put my 29 years of real estate expertise to work for you! My goal is to make every move a smooth move and to have every customer experience a "wow" transaction."
