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 special event.
October 17, 1965, was the final day of the 1964/1965 New York World’s Fair, staged in Queens, New York City. The Fair was dedicated to “Man’s Achievement on a Shrinking Globe in an Expanding Universe,” offering a showcase of mid-20th-century American culture and technology. The event had 140 pavilions; with 37 nations hosting their own; and 24 U.S. states (including New Mexico), and drew a total of 51 million attendees.
According to nywf64.com people remember how much the Fair represented an era to millions of Americans. This theme, 56 years ago, spoke to a time when the possibilities of the future looked so bright, and seemed to be just around the corner.
Marking this occasion, Rey and his guests will discuss how the theme of the 1964/1965 World’s Fair, applies nicely to the good works and optimism of those who work today in real estate, business, and community organizations.

Broker Reflections and Property of the Week
Rey will review the attributes of 108 La Loma Plaza with his Sotheby’s International Realty broker colleague Katherine Blagden. Rey will also ask Katherine to reflect on the state of the real estate market as we continue through the fall season. Regarding Katherine’s listing–Located in the La Loma Plaza historic district and walkable to everywhere in central Taos, this two-bedroom, one-bath adobe was built circa 1795 and is on the National Register of historic places. Portions of “Casa Grantham” may date to the establishment of the original Taos Plaza. Perhaps Kit Carson hung out here! Entering through a blue gate and into a private walled front courtyard with a huge ancient shade tree, one enters another era with the thick adobe walls, wide plank floors, ancient vigas and roughhewn split cedar ceilings, sweet nichos and kiva fireplaces. This special home is authentic and classic old New Mexico. The main bedroom is large and has lovely views to Taos Mountain as well as a cozy gas fireplace for heat. There is a large closet/laundry area adjacent and a full bath. The second bedroom would also make an intimate study or office with bookshelves. This leads into the living room with a corner kiva and access to the sweet eat in kitchen with a very special tiny fireplace by the dining table, butcher block counters, gas stove and access to the large back yard with plenty of room to add a garage or casita. The back yard is South facing with some more mountain views, and a small storage shed that is attached to the house. Truly a Taos treasure of a home!

Besides reflecting on the show theme, Ned will also share an abundant amount of information on a variety of insurance related matters of importance to home owners, buyers, sellers and renters.
