December 2013


home of the month

We are recognizing the residence at 1701 Marble NW which was recently purchased by Robert Chavez and Casey Bitting in July this year. This couple moved to Albuquerque from Colorado in order for Casey to begin a residency program at UNM Hospital. Robert’s ancestors have been in Albuquerque and northern New Mexico since the 1650’s, although Robert was born and raised in Colorado. Robert practiced endodontics on the western slope of Colorado until recently, and will be opening a dental office in Albuquerque in 2014.

While house hunting in Albuquerque, Robert and Casey took one look at the home, fell in love with it, and put in an offer that same night. They were told that it is a one hundred fifty year old adobe structure, that had been beautifully restored by a previous owner. Robert and Casey are enjoying the revitalization of the Downtown and Old Town neighborhoods with Vinaigrette’s and Monroes restaurants, Lowe’s Corner Market, and Monzano Day School being top draws for them. They firmly believe that with continued improvement, the Downtown Neighborhoods can be the jewel of the city.

The Downtown Neighborhoods Association welcomes Robert and Casey. We thank this family for choosing our neighborhood to start this new chapter to live, practice their professions, and raise their family.
