Kitchen rends and lumber futures: The lowdown in Albuquerque’s Real Estate market 
(Transcript Snippet): “Tego: Let’s talk about kitchen to real quick. Oh, I, I brought up the wrong wrong chart. What did I do with it here? Did it go here? It went. Okay. So I love this the headline on this story, it was kitchens you know, stirring the pot COVID customer desires reveal, and then the S the sub-headline was something like spoiler alert, kitchen offices are out, which is interesting. And I, I know some people like them, but for the most part, kitchen offices are out. Cause now everybody just wants their home office.
Tracy: Well, and they want space. They’re tired of being in the kitchen altogether. Right. We need to move around. Plus, you know, kitchen office kind of leaves a mess.
