Recommendations for Businesses in Albuquerque

People and companies I trust and respect. 


My husband, John Cummings, provides financial services specializing in life insurance and retirement planning. After more than 20 years with New York Life, John works with Mass Mutual.

Call John to discuss your financial strategies for retirement or analysis of your insurance portfolio.



Tye Hardison has provided many of the pictures on this website.  He is a natural at capturing the best pictures and his prices are more than reasonable.  Tye has taken my family portraits for years, and he has taken Athletic Touch Therapeutic Massage staff pictures as well as many wedding photos of our friends and family.

Tye's Photography has been providing event, portrait and wedding photography services in the Albuquerque since 2005. He has a passion to capture your moments telling your story through timeless images. He offers reasonable rates for every kind of occasion. 



Dr. Eric Zhao is brilliant and creative. He has helped my family and clients with knee, back and head pain, throat infections and calming a panic attack. We trust and adore Dr. Zhao and his incredible gifts in acupuncture and herbs. Dr. Eric Zhao 3737 Eubank Blvd. NE Albuquerque, NM 87111



Also, I recommend Larry Marrich for "no-nonsense" Chiropractic care. "I have been trusting Dr. Marrich to straighten my body for more than 20 years, from sports injuries and during 2 pregnancies. He uses traditional chiropractic adjustments, and I recommend him for neck, back and hip pain, and/or headaches." Dr. Larry Marrich 3401 Carlise Blvd. NE Albuquerque, NM 87107




I recommend Robert Younger for specific chronic pain relief. "Robert has been working on a chronic hand pain I have in my right hand, and I am very happy with the results. He shares space with Dr. Larry Marrich, so I have an adjustment right before I see Robert. It has been a career saver so far." Robert Younger, 3401 Carlise Blvd. NE Albuquerque, NM 87107



We get our hair cut with Juan Carlos Montoya at his salon, Brinwood Hair Management.  He is amazing with hair.  He listens.  It's quick & a good price.  My kids have asked to get their hair cut more often! They love him, too.



Savva Biller


Savva was the UNM Men's Soccer team goalie coach, the goalie coach for several club soccer organizations and gives private training sessions.

​"I highly recommend Savva to coach your kids and teens as a goal keeper. We have practiced next to each other for years at Academy Hills Park in Albuquerque. I coach my kid's soccer teams right next to where Savva gives private goalkeeping lessons. He coaches kids of all ages in goalkeeping, and also in shooting for forwards and midfielders. My kids both love Savva and enjoy working with him."


This is the breeder from whom we bought our Golden Doodle. We love our puppy! He's hypoallergenic and great with our kids! My son is allergic to dogs, and Fred does not bother him a bit. My son is 12 years old, and he pulls on, tackles, hugs and kisses Fred. The Taos Dood Ranch puppies are gentle and patient. I highly recommend them. Taos Dood Ranch Stefany Sanders 26418 US Hwy 64 Taos, NM 87571



Dawn is by far our favorite groomer!  She is awesome with dogs, and she is gentle, loving and patient with our beloved Golden Doodle, Fred.  Appointments are always within the week; she gets him in & out while doing an outstanding job with the quirky parts, like his eyelashes, nails, and paw webbing. I can't recommend her enough.

505-200-9837  ask for Dawn, tell her Fred's Mom, Ruth sent you! :)
