Rey’s commentary will include observations on the element of broker teamwork, and the professional assistance the marketing and administrative staff at the Santa Fe office of Sotheby’s International Realty bring to their interaction with the company’s brokers and clients.
Rey’s Reflections On The Brokers And Staff Of Sotheby’s International Realty:
Rey will share his thoughts on the professional expertise, knowledge and commitment his fellow associate broker colleagues at Sotheby’s International Realty, bring as they aid home buyers and sellers. As weekly commentators on the radio show, the associate brokers of the company have played a significant role in making ATRE a success. Rey is indebted to these fellow real estate professionals, who have contributed significantly to the show’s message about serving consumers, as they explore a variety of real estate topics. Rey will also reflect on the quality of the listings that the company and its brokers offer to home buyers who wish to make Santa Fe their home.
And without the extremely valuable input of the Sotheby’s International Realty administrative and marketing team professionals, the ATRE program would not be the real estate information destination that consumers continue to choose each week, since the show first aired in the summer of 2009. And it is important to note that the corporate office of Sotheby’s International Realty has been a long-time supporter of the ATRE program.
In the second hour of the show, join Rey and his special guest, Santa Fe Mayor Alan Webber, as he attends the 90th annual meeting of The United States Conference Of Mayors, being staged in Reno, Nevada.
Besides sharing his observations on issues discussed during the annual mayor’s event, The Mayor will also engage in a discussion with Rey on a variety of issues, including:
- Observations on issues, policies, and Santa Fe city activities in 2022.
- What makes Santa Fe such a special destination.
- Addressing city real estate development and housing needs.
- Career opportunities with the City.
Mayor Webber will also share his impressions about the role that the ATRE program plays in the greater Santa Fe community, as the program marks its anniversary this Sunday.
Alan Webber is Santa Fe’s 43rd Mayor—and the City’s first full-time executive. He was elected in March of 2018 with 66% of the vote in another first for Santa Fe, the City’s first Ranked Choice Voting election. Alan ran to make Santa Fe the most user-friendly, eco-friendly, and family-friendly city in the country.
As Mayor, he is focused on:
- Diversifying the economy,

- Investing in young Santa Feans.
- Bringing Santa Fe together.
- Making Santa Fe’s way of life sustainable.
Before running for Mayor, Alan built a career in business and journalism, most notably as the Editorial Director of the Harvard Business Review and Co-Founder and Co-Editor-in-Chief of Fast Company Magazine. Alan has been married to Frances Diemoz for over forty years. They have two children, Adam and Amanda.
ATRE Marks 13 Years Of Airing On June 5, 2022
ATRE began airing in June 2009, with the show broadcasting on more than 700 occasions, as it marks 13 years of airing on Sunday, June 5th. Mostly in a two-hour format, the show has engaged in conversations with more than 3,000 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 and fellow associate brokers at Sotheby’s International Realty, for all that they have done to make the show a success. Here is a link to a press release, marking the 13-year anniversary of the program in June 2022.

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.

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.
