This weekly radio show features host and Sotheby’s International Realty’s Associate Broker Rey Post (NM REC License #45660), as well as variety of special guests who offer news, information and commentary on current real estate, business, and community issues, important to home owners, buyers and sellers.
The “All Things Real Estate” (ATRE) radio show meets the standards established by the New Mexico Department of Health as an “essential business” (real estate-related and radio service), as defined in the state’s March 23, 2020 public health emergency order relating to the presence of coronavirus. As such, ATRE is committed to bringing timely and informative content to the public from some of the nation’s best business, non-profit, community, and real estate leaders. The guest commentators on this week’s show are emblematic of the quality of professionals who have helped to make ATRE a destination that people from all over the country turn to each Sunday.
In the first hour of the show, join Rey and his guest co-host John Grisak, the owner of three roof restoration companies, including Fix My Roof, LLC, and their guests, for a special discussion that relates to an historic event.
On July 12, 1954, President Dwight D. Eisenhower proposed a committee to develop a plan for our nation’s interstate highway system. In what many consider to be the greatest public works project of all time, the national highway system was eventually authorized by Congress, with its construction ultimately linking our entire nation, and touching the lives of every American citizen. For this Sunday’s ATRE show—and as a metaphor for this historic occasion of 66 years ago—Rey, John and their guests will speak to how we all are trying our best to “pave” a new road for ourselves, as we deal with coronavirus, and other matters impacting our lives at this historic point in history.
2020 Roofing and Home Maintenance Update:
John Grisak, President of Fix My Roof, LLC, will speak to not only the theme of the show, but also how he and his work team continue to address the social distancing needs of our current circumstances, as they bring services to their clients. John will also review roof restoration issues important to the residential and commercial clients he serves, during the summer months. In addition, John will update the audience on not only the cutting-edge procedures and products that his company uses in roof restoration, but also the services offered by his other companies—Fiddler Roofing NM, and Zia Roofing. Fix My Roof, LLC, is committed to restoring existing roofs for a fraction of the cost of roof replacement while maximizing a positive impact on the environment by embracing environmentally responsible practices and educating the greater community about environmental stewardship. Headquartered in Santa Fe, John’s three roofing companies have completed both residential and commercial jobs in Santa Fe, Los Alamos, El Dorado, Albuquerque, Rio Rancho, Cochiti, Las Cruces, Alamogordo, Silver City, and many more locations. John, a long-time supporter of “All Things Real Estate,” has returned to the radio show in 2020, as one of the program’s most trusted content providers.
Santa Fe Vacation Rentals, LLC, Update:
Donna Jones White, Owner and Qualifying Broker of Santa Fe Vacation Rentals, LLC, will offer some observations on the show’s theme, and also remind the audience about her company’s role in maintaining a collection of rental options for not only vacation guests, but also those who choose to come to Santa Fe and are seeking a furnished 30-day or long-term unfurnished property.

Rey’s “Real Estate Recommendation”:
Rey’s weekly real estate recommendation will offer information on the ongoing efforts of Sotheby’s International Realty to address the needs of home buyers and sellers, as the coronavirus situation continues. Rey will also share some thoughts on an ongoing element of teamwork, that he and all of his broker colleagues subscribe to. Specifically, that the marketing and administrative staff at the Santa Fe office of Sotheby’s International Realty are offering an even greater level of professional assistance to the company’s brokers and clients, during this exceptionally challenging period of time.
Broker Reflections and Property of the Week:
Rey will review the attributes of 14 Brahma Lane with his Sotheby’s International Realty broker colleague Drew Lamprich. Rey will also ask Drew to reflect on how he pursues his work, while continuing to deal with the impact of coronavirus. Regarding Drew’s listing—he wants to introduce The Shadow House, located in Santa Fe, and the winner of six AIA regional awards: Intellectual, contemporary design by architect Antoine Predock playing on the relationship between light and shadows to create an ever-changing interior mood. The 24-foot-high entry features a massive suspended glass cube, accented by ribbons of light from long, slender skylights, glowing fiber-optics at night. A tiny portal beams in light to signal the winter solstice in the entry tower. Anchoring the house, a unique water feature courses down a 24-foot x 30-foot gently sloping courtyard of ancient Chinese pavers and evokes the sound of a mountain stream. A central 80-foot hallway, eminently suitable for artwork, leads to a large glass door framing Chicoma Peak to the west. The spacious living / dining room highlights the interplay of light and shadow, faces the courtyard water feature, and has a striking fireplace, flanked by two tall glass display cases. Adjacent to the kitchen is a multi-purpose den leading to the upper end of the courtyard and thence to an outside patio. The kitchen is the epitome of form + function, with a central stone island and complimented by a spacious butler’s pantry. The master bedroom suite has an ingenious master bathroom with custom basaltina tub and built-in reclining chaise, and is privately located from the guest suite. The essence of the interior, including a Zen courtyard facing the tatami alcove off the master bedroom, appeals to those with a contemplative, academic side. The private, wood-lined office has a full bathroom and walk-in closet, adaptable as a third bedroom. Superb attention to detail and choice of materials is evident throughout the house—from the patinated copper wall along the entry corridor to the guest suite, the overhead louvres along the central hallway oriented to give maximum light in winter and minimum in summer, Philippe Starck steam shower with glass surround.
In the second hour of the show, join Rey and his guest co-host Kevin Skelly, Graduate Master Builder and Principal at home construction firm K.M. Skelly, Inc., for a continuation of the first hour theme of how we are trying our best to “pave” a new road for ourselves, as we deal with coronavirus, and other matters impacting our lives at this historic point in history. Kevin will speak to how he and his home design and construction team are continuing in their client efforts, while observing social distancing requirements dictated by our current health situation. Also included in the conversation will be an update of Kevin’s roster of residential building projects in 2020. K.M. Skelly, Inc., has perfected a strategy that concentrates on customer service and quality products by giving attention to the details in every project. Kevin Skelly is a Certified Green Professional and a Graduate Master Builder with over 35 years of industry experience. Living in Santa Fe for more than 20 years, Kevin has developed a love for Santa Fe “style” that incorporates simple lines and reflects the landscape’s natural beauty. Accepting a limited number of projects each year, K.M. Skelly, Inc., is able to build a lasting trust with every client, transforming their visions into reality. Kevin, is continuing his commentator role in 2020 on the “All Things Real Estate” radio show, offering his valuable and well-regarded observations on a variety of home construction issues.
ATRE Marked 11 Years Of Airing On June 7, 2020
