By Rey Post
Associate Broker, Sotheby’s International Realty
Host of the “All Things Real Estate” Radio Show
January 17, 2021
The “All Things Real Estate radio show airs this Sunday, January 17 (12-2pm Mountain Time) on Santa Fe’s Talk 1260 AM KTRC and 103.7-FM, and streams on SantaFe.com, as well as via the “Listen Now” link at ATREradio.com.
This weekly radio show features host and Sotheby’s International Realty’s Associate Broker Rey Post (NM REC License #45660), as well as a 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” (radio/media services), as defined in the state’s March 23, 2020, and November 13, 2020, public health emergency orders 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 Stephen Etre, owner of Stephen’s, A Consignment Gallery, and their guests for an “inaugurating the New Year”-inspired discussion of real estate, community, and business issues.
On January 20th, in Washington, DC, the inauguration of Joe Biden will mark the commencement of his four-year term as the 46th president of the United States and Kamala Harris as vice president. Since 1937, the presidential inauguration has taken place at noon Eastern Standard Time, with the recitation of the presidential oath of office, being the only component in this ceremony mandated by the United States Constitution. Though it is not a constitutional requirement, the Chief Justice of the U.S. Supreme Court typically administers the presidential oath of office.
The ongoing presence of coronavirus will alter the ceremony, to foster a safe and secure approach to bringing the new president and vice president into office. Given the significance of the occasion, today’s show will offer reflections on how Americans are inaugurating 2021, in our work and personal lives.
Stephen’s, A Consignment Gallery Review:
Besides speaking generally to the show theme, Stephen Etre will also use this program to discuss the range of activities that he and his staff will be pursuing in the New Year, as they serve their clients. This will include a conversation about the gallery–as part of the Santa Fe community for nearly 40 years–and its proud tradition of “giving back” to Santa Fe, including the support of local charities, as well as cultural and educational organizations. The team at the gallery has a deep commitment to building local, and sustainable community relationships. Stephen will also remind the audience how he and his team continue to practice social distancing procedures, to make shopping at the gallery, as safe and secure as possible. Stephen’s gallery brings more than 14,000 square feet of display space, providing a wide variety of unique items, including furniture, antiques, art, estate items, jewelry, and home accessories. For more than eleven years, Stephen’s gallery has served as one of the major corporate supporters of ATRE and has returned to this role in 2021.
Santa Fe Area Homebuilders Association Review:
Miles D. Conway, the Executive Officer of the Santa Fe Area Home Builders Association (SFAHBA), will speak to the inauguration theme, and also offer a review of not only the successes association members enjoyed in 2020 but also those that they will be pursuing in 2021. This review will include a summary of the unique ways that they are advancing the elements of Santa Fe home construction, in our coronavirus influenced economy. Miles will also highlight some of the public events the SFAHBA hopes to stage in 2021, as well as other important initiatives that he and his home building colleagues have on the agenda for the New Year. For the 11th year in a row, the SFAHBA is continuing as a supporter of, and content provider to ATRE in 2021.
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 608 Griffin Street with his Sotheby’s International Realty broker colleague Roberta Lowe. Rey will also ask Roberta to reflect on how she continues to pursue safe and secure procedures in her real estate work while dealing with the ongoing coronavirus environment. Regarding Roberta’s property, which is co-listed by associate brokers Matt Sargent and Paul McDonald–welcome home to this delightful condo just six blocks from the historic Plaza, in desirable Griffin Park Condominiums. With Saltillo tile and hardwood flooring, 18-foot ceilings in the living room, and a corner Kiva fireplace, this charming home has all of the classic features that define Santa Fe style. The spacious and bright master bedroom has a large walk-in closet, direct access to the full bath, and sliding wood door panels that overlook the living room. The generous guest bedroom has a balcony that looks out onto some of the other well-kept homes in the compound, providing a historic Eastside ambiance, with great proximity to downtown. The kitchen has hardwood cabinetry, Talavera tile countertops, a wine cooler, and ample storage and workspace. The dining room adjoins a generous outdoor space with a high privacy wall. This home can be purchased as a turn-key option with a tasteful furniture and art package available.
In the second hour of the show, join Rey for a special interview of the Mayor of Santa Fe, Alan Webber. Rey and the Mayor will continue the theme from the first hour of the program, of “inaugurating our New Year,” speaking to the issues important to the residents of the city as we begin 2021. Becoming the 43rd mayor of Santa Fe winning with a landslide victory on March 6, 2018, Alan is known as a successful entrepreneur and author and has considerable experience in local, state, and Federal government activities.

- Successes in Santa Fe in 2020.
- Update on the city’s efforts to address the ongoing Covid-19 challenge.

ATRE Moving Towards 12 Years Of Airing On June 6, 2021
In June 2009, the inaugural broadcast of the ATRE program was aired. Since then, the show has aired on more than 600 occasions, mostly in a two-hour format, with nearly 2,700 guest commentators coming from Santa Fe and national real estate, business, governmental, entertainment, and community organizations. Though Rey created the show and has hosted just about every 1st hour (and many of the 2nd-hour broadcasts), a number of professionals have served as special guest hosts for many of the 2nd-hour broadcasts of the show. Rey is honored that ATRE has been embraced by the listening audience, with people in Santa Fe, throughout New Mexico, and across the country selecting the show as a destination each Sunday. He is also very appreciative of the program’s corporate supporters, broadcast professionals at Hutton Broadcasting, and the marketing team at Sotheby’s International Realty, for all that they have done to make the show a success.
ATRE Wins National Award
In January 2020, RISMedia—the leading information and news provider for the residential real estate industry—named ATRE as one of their “2020 Newsmakers.” Cited as a nationally-recognized industry leader, ATRE and others were characterized by RISMedia as “making a difference in the real estate and homeownership sectors, and whose actions have a far-reaching and profound impact on the real estate industry.” ATRE won in the category of “Trendsetters” in real estate, with information on the roster of award designees at https://rismedia.com/2020-newsmakers/, and ATRE recognized at https://rismedia.com/newsmaker/?id=429. Rey is honored to be a recipient of this special award and thanks all of the professionals who have helped to make ATRE a destination that people go to each week since the show first launched in 2009.
Giving Back to the Community
