About Joe Grady
Joe Grady, an Albuquerque native that was involved in the adobe construction business for many years before relocating to South Florida in 2004. My wife Lauri is a Louisiana native who moved to Albuquerque in 1986 and now works as a health care consultant. We have two sons who both went to middle school and high school in South Florida. The oldest is now a law student at the University of Mississippi and the younger is a senior at Wagner college in New York.
Joe Grady purchased this House in 2016
Why Joe Grady chose Rio Grande Blvd
We purchased this property for the location mostly, since it was close to the rio grande Bosque area, but also because there was a 100 year old adobe house that had been occupied up until a couple of years before we saw it. It had a good foundation and for the most part had stayed dry while it had been occupied. Whether it was smart to salvage the original house or not we used those existing walls and roof heights to design and build the additional square footage. We used all adobe walls and parapets on the new building areas similar to what had been used on the original structure and tied in the old building with new foundations and adobe buttresses. This kind of construction is not totally common but if you do see it usually it is in this part of Albuquerque (North Valley) or in Santa Fe and northern New Mexico. When we talked about where we would want to build if we ever had the chance to come back to Albuquerque it was always the North Valley.
What makes this House unique
Great location for walkers and bike riders - the pathway adjacent to the house goes directly to the Bosque nature trails. There are three bicycles in the garage for easy riding. There are also two good restaurants within a 5 min walk, flying star is open for all meals, el Patio for lunch and dinner. Both have beer & wine. Old town is a 10 min drive straight up rio grande blvd. I-40 is also right down rio grande and the rest of the city can be accessed easily. If you don’t want to leave that is also a comfortable option, very private outdoor area and very peaceful area.

Can’t wait to come back!
Beautiful home! Joe is a excellent host! My wife and I stayed with your kids, the entire family loved the property inside and out. The house is located in a very private area with other nice houses around you so we felt very safe. Also, One block away so easy walking distance there is a great Mexican and pizza restaurant that we ate at and loved. The outdoor space with hot tube and grill were perfect for cooking and hanging out in the afternoons. We can’t wait to come back and will definitely stay here again anytime we are back in the Albuquerque area.
Great host, beautiful property
Joe was an excellent host. We had a unique situation and he was so accommodating. The house is beautiful and the yard is meticulously maintained. Full cable package w/ movie channels and Netflix was a major bonus.

Beautiful, Upscale home in a quiet neighborhood
The home was beautiful both inside and out. The neighborhood is quiet and private and very convenient to old town and other Albuquerque attractions. Great restaurants such as Los Poblanos are within a mile or two. Master Suite is very large, with a huge walk in closet and beautiful large bathroom. I highly recommend this home for your trip to the Albuquerque area.
