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 homeowners, 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, for a special discussion that includes an acknowledgement of a national observance occurring on September 13.
This Sunday is National Grandparents Day, first declared a national observance in 1978, by President Jimmy Carter. Grandparents Day honors the love only grandparents can provide to children, and is an opportunity to treasure that connection and spend some quality family time together. These caring and patient people offer more than just a generous dose of love. Grandparents also provide an abundance of wisdom, guidance and stability. Though there are clearly health-related challenges among the elderly during our Covid-19 experience, many publications observe that grandparents are playing an even larger starring role in multigenerational home life these days.
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 September and going into the fall and winter. 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 Insulated Foam 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.

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 480 San Antonio, Unit #C with his Sotheby’s International Realty broker colleague Tim Galvin. Rey will also ask Tim to reflect on how coronavirus has impacted his personal life, and real estate work. Regarding Tim’s listing–this fine residence in the San Antonio Compound is located in the Historic Eastside of Santa Fe, and is close to everything, but quietly tucked away off of Acequia Madre. This three-bedroom, two-bath adobe and frame construction home, by respected builder Jay Parks, has never been offered for sale, and blends timeless Santa Fe charm with modern amenities. The home includes numerous features, including seven fireplaces, hand-troweled plaster walls, coved ceilings with vigas, beams, and corbels, arched doorways, nichos, rustic antique doors, skylights, tile and hardwood floors (no carpet), A/C, radiant in-floor heat, and a two-car attached garage with ample guest parking. The great room includes an impressive fireplace and access to covered back portal area with its own fireplace and room for entertaining. The kitchen offers top-of-the-line stainless steel appliances, a cozy corner fireplace and a casual dining area with French doors to the front entry courtyard with fountain, fireplace and BBQ. The master bedroom includes a retreat area, en-suite bath with walk-in closet and access to back portal area. The two guest bedrooms are separated from the master for privacy. This home has it all, location, adobe construction, plus Santa Fe style with modern amenities.
