I was born and raised in New Mexico and I have worked in Placitas for over 25 years being involved with real estate on many levels, working with developers, homeowner associations and water cooperatives. I have been a volunteer of the Placitas Chamber of Commerce for more than 13 years.

I have a deep desire and am motivated to by a desire to provide my real estate clients with a pleasant and efficient real estate experience culminating in a happy and satisfied client.



We’ve had the pleasure of working with Annette Ackerman, owner of La Puerta Realty, on several of our real-estate transactions including our personal residence and summer home as well as our investment property. After several attempts with other Realtors, Annette was the one able to facilitate the sale of the first home in our investment property, a 13- lot subdivision. Annette was the only Realtor that truly understood the local market and the area. Annette was up to speed on new businesses moving into the area, road construction improvement initiatives, local school information and priced the home accordingly. Annette is innovative as well. With the improvement in the local housing market, Annette brainstormed with us to look at other options to complete the build-out of our small subdivision. Annette suggested approaching another builder with a strong local presence and established name brand to market our lots and build on them. Annette’s initiative has been instrumental in getting our project off the ground, lots sold and homes built. Saying that Annette is a pleasure to work with is an understatement. Annette is hardworking, intelligent, personable, caring, and a true professional that we consider a friend. We strongly recommend Annette to anyone buying or selling a home or other property.

Since moving to the Albuquerque area, my wife and I have bought and sold several homes, fourteen separate real estate transactions in total.  Annette Ackerman has been our Realtor for the last three transactions, a purchase and subsequent sale of a home in Placitas, and the recent purchase of a residential building lot in our favorite neighborhood.
No other real estate agent comes close to Annette’s honesty, integrity, experience, and professionalism.  Annette is a tireless worker, as evidenced by her late-night and early morning emails with updates or responses to our questions or concerns.  Annette is a real estate professional who is truly there to represent you and your interests throughout the buying and/or selling process.  It is without reservation that I recommend Annette to all, including friends, family, builders, and developers.
