The postponed 2020 Summer Olympics (due to the COVID 19 pandemic), is an international multi-sport event, now scheduled to be held from July 23rd to August 8th in Tokyo, Japan. Olympism–highlighted in the Olympic Charter–has three core values: excellence, friendship and respect. Olympism also promotes, among other things, teamwork and education, with an eye towards building a better world.
In the first hour of the show, Rey and his guest co-host Miles Conway, Executive Officer of the Santa Fe Area Home Builders Association (SFAHBA), and their guests, will speak to how Olympic values can inspire the day-to-day work activities of real estate professionals.
The SFAHBA’s “Haciendas, A Parade of Homes” Tour:
Miles will apply the show theme to the staging of this year’s edition of the “Haciendas, A Parade of Homes” tour, being staged August 13-15 and 20-22 . Join the Parade to experience Santa Fe Style, and see some of the very best homes built in our nation. Witness in-person the cutting-edge design, old-world craftsmanship handed down through generations, and the innovative use of materials that continue to make homes constructed in Santa Fe famous. This world-class event, spread over two long weekends in August, is a must-see! Professionals in design and construction, green builders, architects, next-generation innovators, and visitors from around the world look forward to attending this summer’s Parade event. On August 15th, the ATRE show will return to the Parade–postponed in August 2020 due to COVID-19–by airing a remote broadcast from one of the featured homes in this year’s event. That show will feature a number of special guest commentators, including SFAHBA members, as well as real estate and business professionals, and community leaders. Rey is proud of the fact that the SFAHBA has been a supporter of, and content provider to the ATRE radio show for the past 11 years.
Stephen’s, A Consignment Gallery Estate Sales:
Rey will ask Stephen Etre, owner of Stephen’s, A Consignment Gallery, to reflect on the “Olympic quality” nature of one of his gallery’s most popular events: estate sales. These well-regarded events attract consumers from all over the region and underscore why the gallery has become a popular destination for nearly four decades, to not only those who own, buy, or sell homes, but also all of those who practice real estate as a trade. Rey and Stephen will also discuss 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’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.

Broker Reflections and Property of the Week
Rey will review the attributes of 0 Rio Grande Adobe Home with his Sotheby’s International Realty broker colleague David Cordova. Rey will also ask David to reflect on the state of the real estate market in July, as well as other elements of marketing a home in our current environment. Regarding David’s listing-–Located near Taos, and close to Velarde, New Mexico, is this secluded adobe estate near the Rio Grande in El Guique. The property is nestled within the spectacular landscapes of the Rio Grande River valley and the volcanic Black Mesa plateau. The 1.1-acre property is fenced and gated, and bounded by the Acequia del Ancón irrigation ditch. Fully landscaped with a grass lawn, fields of ivy, mint, and herbs, rows of evergreens, ancient box-elder, locust trees, and mature fruit trees, all served by sprinkler and drip irrigation systems. The two side-by-side houses were built around 1750, for members of an extended family, and have been restored carefully to maintain the integrity and beauty of the original adobe architecture, while incorporating modern and extensive restoration. Each house measures close to 1,800 square feet with thick adobe walls and 10-foot-high ceilings formed by original vigas, and wood floors throughout both houses. The houses can be configured in a variety of fashions. Presently the main house comprises a large eat-in kitchen with an additional seating area at the corner fireplace, a spacious dining room with large windows overlooking the lawn, a living room with traditional fireplace and banco, and a large bedroom. The second house contains a vast artist’s studio, a library with kitchenette and dining area, and a guest bedroom. The entire property is fenced for complete privacy. This is an artist’s dream! A must see!
In the second hour of the show, join Rey and his special guest, Abenicio Baldonado, Think New Mexico’s first ever Education Reform Director. Abenicio grew up in Las Vegas, New Mexico, where he is a proud graduate of Robertson High School. He earned a BA in political science and Master of Public Affairs degree from Highlands University. Abenicio went on to teach government, economics, and history in a public New Mexico charter school, and later chaired the governing board of that school. He previously served as an Ethics Officer for the Secretary of State’s Office and as the Legislative Liaison at the New Mexico Public Education Department under both Republican and Democratic administrations. As Think New Mexico’s Education Reform Director, Abenicio will focus full-time on developing and advocating for state and local education policies that will improve the outcomes of New Mexico’s public-school students. He will also work to ensure that the voices of New Mexico’s students and their families are heard in the policymaking process. Rey will explore Abenicio’s work agenda at the non-profit, including his plans to work with the New Mexico Public Education Department to find a path for including financial literacy in the state’s high school performance standards. In this project, Abenicio will also advocate for the enactment of legislation to elevate financial literacy from an elective to a graduation requirement.
