AUDUBON SOUTH VALLEY

BERNALILLO COUNTY, NEW MEXICO

Unique Places worked with the National Audubon Society to transfer a 35-acre irrigated farmland property located in the South Valley of Albuquerque, New Mexico into their ownership.  A generous supporter of Audubon donated the property and significant water rights to Audubon with the intent of preserving the open space and agricultural values of the land.  Unique Places ensured the property was successfully transferred in December of 2016 to meet the financial and tax considerations for the donor.

The next phase of the project included ensuring the permanent conservation of the farmland and to sell the property.  Unique Places worked with Audubon to develop permanent deed restrictions over the property and to ensure it was marketable and functional as a working farm.  Once the deed restrictions were in place, our local real estate expert, Terra Alta Real Estate Services, succeeded in brokering the sale of the property in May of 2017.

In a matter of six months Unique Places transferred, transformed and liquidated a real estate asset to the benefit of the National Audubon Society.
