February 21, 2021
The “All Things Real Estate radio show airs this Sunday, February 21 (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 a discussion of real estate, community, and business issues, inspired by a historic event.
136 years ago, this Sunday–on February 21, 1885–the Washington Monument was dedicated in Washington, DC, one day before George Washington’s birthday. At the time–as the tallest building in the world, at 555 feet–the monument towered above the city, serving as an awe-inspiring reminder of George Washington’s greatness, embodying the awe, respect, and gratitude the nation felt for its most essential Founding Father.
In honor of this occasion, and on the heels of the celebration of President’s Day on February 15th, this Sunday’s ATRE show will address the importance of leadership in real estate, community and business work.
Stephen’s, A Consignment Gallery Review:
Rey will speak to the role that Stephen Etre plays as one of Santa Fe’s recognized business leaders. Rey will also invite Stephen to reflect on how his gallery has been a popular destination with homeowners, buyers, and sellers, as well as real estate professionals, for nearly four decades. This will include a conversation about the gallery’s proud tradition of “giving back” to Santa Fe, including the support of local charities, as well as cultural and educational organizations. This is reflected in the gallery team’s deep commitment to building local, and sustainable community relationships. Stephen will also remind the audience on 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 show’s leadership theme, and also offer a review of the successes association members have enjoyed since the start of 2021, as well as what is on the agenda for the first half of the year. This review will include a summary of the unique ways that association members 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. 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 282 Calle Juanita with his Sotheby’s International Realty broker colleague Darlene Streit. Going to the show theme, Rey will also review the leadership role that Darlene plays, as a highly successful real estate broker. Darlene will also share how she continues to pursue COVID-19 safe and secure procedures with her home buyer and seller clients. Regarding Darlene’s property–this is a two-bedroom, 2.5-bath contemporary home, plus casita, located in Santa Fe’s Historic East Side. With clean, crisp lines, a strong emphasis on geometric shapes, and a simple color palette, this light-filled residence is ideal for art collectors and devotees. An open floor plan design allows for a welcoming feeling, especially when entertaining guests. Urbane architectural features include clerestory windows, moveable floating walls, concrete floors, and a sleek, stylish fireplace. The Chef’s kitchen is appointed with Wolf appliances, including an induction cooktop, convection steam, and standard convection ovens, Wolf microwave, Sub-Zero refrigerator, an island, and access to a spacious pantry and laundry room with lots of extra storage. The master suite has a super large dual closet with built-ins. The casita offers private, flexible space for guests, or to be used as a studio, or office. An eco-friendly landscaped courtyard provides outdoor space for relaxing and dining al fresco. There is a two-car attached garage. This is an incredible opportunity to own a recently built home (2017) so close to the Santa Fe River, Monsignor Patrick Smith Park, and the galleries and restaurants of Canyon Road.
In the second hour of the show, join Rey and his special guest Gregg Antonsen, Qualifying Broker and Senior Vice President of the Santa Fe brokerage of Sotheby’s International Realty. Rey and Gregg will discuss a variety of issues, including:
- The importance of leadership in real estate work.
- The successes of the brokers of Sotheby’s International Realty in 2020.
- The state of the real estate market in early 2021.
- Observations on how home buyers, sellers, and brokers adjusted to the impact of coronavirus in their lives and work.
- Review of new types of home elements that buyers are looking for as a result of coronavirus.
- Reflections on societal/economic issues impacting the market in 2021.
Gregg has served in his role at the brokerage since 2011 and brings more than 30 years of real estate experience to the radio show’s conversation. As manager of three offices, associate brokers, and staff that comprise Sotheby’s International Realty’s presence in Santa Fe, Gregg fully understands the important role that home buying and selling plays in the economy, both locally, and across the nation.
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
Since 2009, the “All Things Real Estate” (ATRE) radio show has offered air time to a variety of Santa Fe non-profit and community organizations. Representatives from organizations are able to use the ATRE program to share news and information with northern New Mexico residents about their services and activities. Over the years, some of the highly-regarded non-profit organizations featured on the ATRE program are: Cornerstones Community Partnerships; Think New Mexico; Las Campanas Compadres; the Santa Fe Concorso; Kitchen Angels; Creative Santa Fe; Dollars4Schools; and Youthworks. Senior Officers of the CHRISTUS St. Vincent Regional Medical Center, have also served as commentators on the program. In addition, Santa Fe Mayor Alan Webber—who has offered commentary on the show since first elected in 2018—speaks to the programs, events and community activities important to the residents of the city. In 2019, the Town of Taos collaborated with ATRE, in a year-long information series—sponsored by the Taos Ski Valley—called “This Is Taos.” Designed to offer useful information about this historic northern New Mexico community, the monthly show earned high marks from the public. Among the companies and non-profit organizations joining in supporting this monthly show series were: Taos Mesa Brewing; the Taos Center for the Arts; the Taos Arts Council; the Taos Gallery Association; the Taos Opera Institute; as well as Taos Behavioral Health, the Strong at Heart, and Taos MainStreet Accelerator projects.
