Associate Broker, Sotheby’s International Realty
Host of the “All Things Real Estate” Radio Show
December 6, 2020
The “All Things Real Estate radio show airs this Sunday, December 6 (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 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 St. Nicholas Day-inspired discussion of real estate, community, and holiday issues.
December 6th is St. Nicholas Day, which is derived from Nicholas of Myra, who was a bishop in 4th century Greece. He was known for selling off his own items and then giving the money to the poor. He would commonly leave coins in people’s shoes and dedicated his entire life to serving people who were sick and suffering. The creation of the legend of Santa Claus can be traced back to St. Nicholas.
Stephen’s, A Consignment Gallery Review:
In the spirit of the story and actions of St. Nicholas, Rey and Stephen Etre will discuss not only the value of Stephen’s, A Consignment Gallery as a great destination for holiday gift buying but also the fact that the gallery–as part of the Santa Fe community for nearly 40 years–has a proud tradition of “giving back” to Santa Fe, including the support of local charities, as well as cultural and educational organizations. In response to the current state-mandated health order due to coronavirus, the gallery is offering a safe and socially-distanced “private shopping” experience to consumers during the holidays (go here to make your own appointment). Stephen’s gallery brings more than 14,000 square feet of gallery display space, providing a wide variety of unique items, including furniture, antiques, art, estate items, jewelry, and home accessories. The team at the gallery has a deep commitment to building local, and sustainable community relationships. For more than eleven years, Stephen’s gallery has served as one of the major corporate supporters of ATRE and has committed to returning to this role in 2021.
Lucky Dog Hi-Fi & Technology Solutions Report:
Danny Muller, co-owner of Lucky Dog Hi-Fi & Technology Solutions, will offer his thoughts on the show’s St. Nicholas theme, especially as his company is offering a new retail location that can be a destination for holiday gift-buying. Danny and his colleagues bring not only experience in offering a range of hi-fi products and services to their clients, but also entertainment-related knowledge working for, or owning record stores, night clubs, production companies, and recording studios. Danny will also update the audience about the ways that his company operates safely for its clients, in the ongoing coronavirus environment. Danny will share information on how he and his business partner, Truewill Mashburn, specialize in providing residential and commercial custom technology solutions to their clients. The different backgrounds of the Lucky Dog team contribute to a unique end result: their ability to customize their clients’ home for audio, A/V, home automation, networking, and home lighting based on their particular specifications and circumstances. They understand how architecture, design, engineering, acoustics, and technology can all work together to craft a certain outcome. Since January, Danny and Truewill have served as ATRE corporate supporters and show commentators, offering information on how their firm brings custom technology solutions to homes and businesses. They will be returning to ATRE in 2021 in their commentator roles.
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 the listings offered to home buyers by his Sotheby’s International Realty broker colleagues. Rey will also remind the audience on how the company is offering safe and secure processes for all home buyer and seller clients, as we all continue to deal with the impact of coronavirus in our lives, and work.
In the second hour of the show, join Rey for two very special interview segments.
Preview of “The Kaye & Lee Show”
Joining Rey for the first half of the program, are his Sotheby’s International Realty Associate Broker colleagues Kaye Theimer and Lee Bowers, who are known by their clients as Santa Fe lifestyle real estate specialists. Starting in January 2021, “The Kaye & Lee Show” will offer news, information, and interviews on Santa Fe culture and style, that will be offered during the first Sunday of each month that the ATRE program airs (1-2 pm Mountain Time). This Sunday, Rey will discuss with Kaye and Lee their approach to hosting this new one-hour broadcast, including the experiences and talents that they bring to their real estate business. Kaye, is a Ph.D. child psychologist, a former professor at the University of Tulsa and the University of California, Santa Barbara, and a professional operating a private practice. Her people skills are her strength and passion. She is a strong listener, thinker, and communicator. This translates into being a compassionate woman. These skills are instrumental to address and solve the challenges of the real estate adventure. She has owned a home in Santa Fe for thirty years and has lived in the city full-time for the last three. She and her former husband developed resort properties all across the country from Beaver Creek/Vail Colorado, Montecito, California to Charleston, South Carolina. Lee brings her knowledge of the Santa Fe home market, and as a lifelong professional artist and designer, she has the creative eye to locate the perfect dream home for her clients. Her 25 plus years in business gives her the skills and talent to negotiate with confidence and integrity for the best experience for home buyers and sellers. She appreciates her discriminating clientele and provides them with exceptional personal service.
Paul Weideman Shares His Editor & Writer Experiences
For 23 years, Paul Weideman has worked for the Santa Fe New Mexican newspaper, serving as Editor of the monthly Home/Santa Fe Real Estate Guide magazine, as well as a staff writer on Pasatiempo, the paper’s weekly arts magazine. On Sunday, Rey will explore Paul’s 35 years in journalism, including the November 2019 publication of his book ARCHITECTURE Santa Fe: A Guidebook. The 242-page book includes a short, illustrated history and then detail photos and captions for 114 of the city’s architectural resources. Over the years, Paul’s Home magazine entries have won four times in the National Association of Real Estate Editors’ annual journalism awards, for “Best Newspaper Real Estate or Home Section.” An important factor in the awards was the fact that the magazine has all local content. Besides Paul’s stories, there have been up to a dozen columns every month that are written by Santa Fe people, covering real estate and mortgage matters, as well as interior design, gardening, feng shui, water conservation, and architecture. Paul’s grasp of the Santa Fe real-estate scene is especially told by one aspect of his career with the magazine: From March 1999 to December 2020, he has interviewed 176 local brokers for his Realtor Profile series. Paul, who was born in Indianapolis and has lived in New Mexico since 1992, has won numerous other awards during his more than three decades in journalism.

The State Of The Real Estate Market October 22 2020

The State Of The Real Estate Market
              By Rey Post
Associate Broker, Sotheby’s International Realty &
Host of “All Things Real Estate” Radio Show
            October 22, 2020

 

In spite of the challenges we are facing in our COVID-19 world, real estate stands out as one of the strongest elements of our economy.

To illustrate this reality, Dr. Lawrence Yun, the Chief Economist of the National Association of Realtors (NAR) recently stated, “Home sales continue to amaze, and there are plenty of buyers in the pipeline ready to enter the market. Further gains in sales are likely for the remainder of the year, with mortgage rates hovering around 3%.” Dr. Yun further observed last month, that existing homes sales across the U.S. recently hit the highest level, since December 2006.Rey Post Santa Fe New Mexico

Dr. Yun also noted that the need for housing will grow even further, especially in areas that are attractive to those who can work from home. NAR highlighted—in its August 2020 Work From Home Counties report—that remote work opportunities are likely to become a growing part of the nation’s workforce culture. Dr. Yun believes that this trend will endure, even after a coronavirus vaccine is available.

Going to Dr. Yun’s observations, there is clear evidence over the past eight months, that people living in high-density urban settings, are seeing destinations like Santa Fe to be more attractive for home ownership. Beyond the architectural, cultural, art, food, sports and environmental attractions of our community, many people living in larger cities are simply looking for more wide-open space to work in, and raise their families.

Santa Fe has always been a place that consumers have found desirable for second home ownership. But the impact of COVID-19 in our lives and work, may accelerate the purchase of permanent residences in our city among people from our active real estate “feeder” markets (Texas, Colorado, California, et al.), as well as from other regions around the nation, as well as from overseas.

To this point, and as reported by the Santa Fe Association of Realtors (SFAR), the overall volume of home sales in the city rose by 24%, or from $313.3 million in 2019, to $389.5 million in the 3rd Quarter of 2020. The association’s 2020 President, Susan Orth, recently observed that “The Santa Fe housing market surged in both sales and prices during this quarter, following weak sales in the 2nd Quarter of 2020, due to the COVID-19 pandemic closures.” She further noted that, “The data demonstrates the robust strength of the Santa Fe housing market, even with historically low inventories, and the growing desire to acquire a home oasis in the pandemic era.”

To underscore these statistics, Gregg Antonsen, the Qualifying Broker of the Santa Fe operation of Sotheby’s International Realty, advises that our company—as the real estate market leader in Northern New Mexico—realized a home sales volume in the 3rd Quarter of this year (despite a huge drop-off in April/May due to COVID-19), that exceeded the company’s sales volume in the 3rd Quarter of last year.

Beyond Santa Fe, M. Steven Anaya, the Chief Executive Officer of the New Mexico Association of Realtors (NMAR), stated in this third quarter report, that to date New Mexico’s real estate market seems to be on track to maintain its 17% contribution to the state’s economy in 2020. He further observed that the economic impact of a home sale is not limited to just real estate related industries.

Anaya notes that expenditures related to a home purchase (such as furniture and remodeling) make up roughly 6.4% of the total economic impact of a home sale. Plus, there is a multiplier effect to account for the fact that income earned in other sectors of the economy as a result of a home sale, is then re-circulated into the economy. Additional homes sales also induce added home production. Typically, one new home is constructed for every six existing home sales.

But NMAR’s Anaya also observed in his report that the tight supply of homes for sale in our market has contributed to rising prices. In their recent report on the state of the market, SFAR revealed that median home prices in Santa Fe have grown by 16% from $396,500 in the 3rd Quarter of 2019, to $461,500 this quarter.

As NAR’s Dr. Yun notes, “Housing demand is robust but supply is not, and this imbalance will inevitably harm affordability and hinder ownership opportunities. To assure broad gains in homeownership, more new homes need to be constructed.”

In fact, research by the NAR indicates housing affordability is weakening as prices continue to surge. The jump in home prices of 11.7% nationally in August was way above family income increases of 2.2%. The lowest-on-record 30-year fixed-rate mortgage helps offset some of the high home prices, however affordability is a concern across the nation.

Creating affordable housing is something that real estate professionals, government and business leaders realize must be addressed, especially given the strain that COVID-19 has placed on our economy, and specifically the job market.

At the same time, the robust real estate market we are enjoying in Santa Fe and around the U.S. is clearly benefitting our local and national economies, while also providing a pathway for those who have an interest in, and capability to purchase a home.

Buying a property requires you to be financially sound and truly prepared to own a place you want to call “home.” Beyond all the financial elements associated with actually buying a home, you will also be liable for property taxes, insurance, maintenance, and repairs.

One positive note, is that mortgage rates are extremely competitive and at historically low levels, and this will most likely remain the case through the end of 2020.

With all of my home buyer clients, who come to me with their interest in a property purchase—with a desire to use a loan in the process—I always recommend that they initially meet with a mortgage professional. This first step allows them to determine what they are qualified to buy, based on their financial situation. Doing so also allows me, or any real estate broker, the ability to zero in on the home options that meet a buyer’s needs, and desires.

It is also recommended that you make sure you have enough money saved to cover around six months of essential living costs, once you make your down payment and pay closing costs on your mortgage.

And if you are planning to move from one jurisdiction to another, you need to allocate funds to pay for the cost of moving. But if you’re able to do all of your packing, as well as some or all of the transporting yourself, it’s far more affordable.

Of course, in our coronavirus world, you’ll need to use safe and secure health practices in your move, plus you will need to make sure that you follow COVID-19 related rules established by each state, should you be traveling between jurisdictions (e.g., the need to self-quarantine upon arrival; etc.).

Lastly, because of the presence of coronavirus, real estate professionals are using a range of technology tools to make the exploration of home options by buyers very doable in a safe process. Virtual tours using special elements allow home buyers the chance to see homes in a 3-D format, which was not often used by brokers during our pre-COVID-19 days.

These tools provide buyers with a method for narrowing the homes they are most interested in, thereby reducing the need for in-person tours, as they search for the perfect property.

Like every other professional operating today in the home buying/selling process, real estate brokers are using strict protocols for making the in-person viewing of homes as safe as possible (e.g., small groups of people to tour homes at one time; face mask requirements at properties; availability of hand sanitizers at homes; etc.).

Similarly, title companies, which handle the final step of closing on the purchase of a property, are using creative processes for accomplishing this task with little to no direct person-to-person contact (e.g., “drive through” document signing from your car; etc.).

Home inspection professionals are also providing their critical services to buyers (and sellers), while also keeping their clients at a safe distance from the actual inspection process, sharing pictures and written reports of problems discovered via electronic means, minimizing in-person communication.

My “All Things Real Estate” radio show website (ATREradio.com) provides a roster of real estate professionals who follow all required COVID-19 measures that meet the rules established by the State of New Mexico. In addition, these are some of the very best practitioners of all parts of the real estate purchase and rental process, and are regularly offering commentary on a variety of subjects important to consumers during our Sunday broadcasts.

I hope that this information is useful to you as you explore the opportunity to realize the “dream of home ownership” in Santa Fe. I’ll be offering you additional observations about the real estate market and the home buying/selling process on a quarterly basis in 2021. Also, we invite you to join us each Sunday (12-2pm Mountain Time), as we air the “All Things Real Estate” radio show on Santa Fe’s KTRC (1260-AM and 103.7-FM), as well as via streaming on SantaFe.com.

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, for a discussion of the gallery’s annual “Fall Sale” event, being staged on both Saturday and Sunday. Rey, Stephen, and their guests will also note a historic event occurring this Sunday, as another theme for the broadcast.

On October 18, 1954, Texas Instruments announces the Regency TR-1 Transistor radio, making it the first commercially sold transistor radio, selling in significant numbers to people all over the world. With the transistor radio–no matter how isolated you were–music and world news suddenly became portable. It is also claimed that the device helped to further the rock n’ roll music revolution. The anniversary of the transistor radio reinforces another ATRE show theme this week: the value of radio as a medium for sharing news and information with consumers.

Stephen’s, A Consignment Gallery Review:

Stephen Etre, Owner of Stephen’s, A Consignment Gallery, will speak from the floor of the gallery, as he and his team stage their annual “Fall Sale” event. For decades, this event has attracted consumers from all over the country to the more than 13,000 square feet of gallery display space, providing a wide variety of unique items, including furniture, antiques, art, estate items, jewelry, and home accessories. Most of these items are offered to homeowners, buyers, and sellers at reduced prices during the two-day affair. Stephen will also remind the audience that–especially during this popular event, and as we deal with the presence of coronavirus–he and his gallery team are practicing social distancing procedures, to make participation at the event, safe and secure for all their clients. Stephen’s gallery–which has been a part of the Santa Fe community for nearly 40 years–is proud of its mission 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. For more than eleven years, Stephen’s gallery has served as one of the major corporate supporters of “All Things Real Estate,” and has committed to returning to this role in 2021.

Lucky Dog Hi-Fi & Technology Solutions Report:

Truewill Mashburn, co-owner of Lucky Dog Hi-Fi & Technology Solutions, will not only offer his support for the success of the “Fall Sale” at Stephen’s, A Consignment Gallery, but will also reflect on the show’s theme of marking the anniversary of the creation of the transistor radio. To the theme, Truewill and his team bring not only an experience in offering a range of hi-fi products and services to his clients, but also entertainment-related knowledge working for, or owning record stores, night clubs, production companies, and recording studios. Truewill will also update the audience about the ways that his company fully operates for its clients, in the ongoing coronavirus environment. Truewill will share information on how he and his business partner, Daniel Muller, specialize in providing residential and commercial custom technology solutions to their clients. The different backgrounds of the Lucky Dog team contribute to a unique end result: their ability to customize their clients’ home for audio, A/V, home automation, networking, and home lighting based on their particular specifications and circumstances. They understand how architecture, design, engineering, acoustics, and technology can all work together to craft a certain outcome. Since January, Truewill and Daniel have served as ATRE corporate supporters and show commentators, offering information on how their firm brings custom technology solutions to homes and businesses.

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.

Rey will review the attributes of 93 County Road 120 with his Sotheby’s International Realty broker colleague Lois Sury. Rey will also ask Lois to update the audience on how she and her team are offering safe and secure processes for her clients, as we continue to deal with the impact of coronavirus in our lives, and work. Regarding the property, it offers rural living at its best: privacy, peace-and-quiet, surrounded in beauty with views to the west of the Jemez mountain range and Chicoma Peak. The home is also conveniently located in La Mesilla, close to the Black Mesa Golf Course, and only 25 minutes to Santa Fe and 40 minutes to Los Alamos.

This weekly radio show features host and Sotheby’s International Realty’s Associate Broker Rey Post (NM REC License #45660), as well as variety of special guests who offer news, information and commentary on current real estate, business, and community issues, important to home owners, 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” (real estate-related and radio service), as defined in the state’s March 23, 2020 public health emergency order 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 John Grisak, the owner of three roof restoration companies, including Fix My Roof, LLC, and their guests, for a special discussion that relates to an historic event.

On July 12, 1954, President Dwight D. Eisenhower proposed a committee to develop a plan for our nation’s interstate highway system. In what many consider to be the greatest public works project of all time, the national highway system was eventually authorized by Congress, with its construction ultimately linking our entire nation, and touching the lives of every American citizen. For this Sunday’s ATRE show—and as a metaphor for this historic occasion of 66 years ago—Rey, John and their guests will speak to how we all are trying our best to “pave” a new road for ourselves, as we deal with coronavirus, and other matters impacting our lives at this historic point in history.

2020 Roofing and Home Maintenance Update:

John Grisak, President of Fix My Roof, LLC, will speak to not only the theme of the show, but also how he and his work team continue to address the social distancing needs of our current circumstances, as they bring services to their clients. John will also review roof restoration issues important to the residential and commercial clients he serves, during the summer months. In addition, John will update the audience on not only the cutting-edge procedures and products that his company uses in roof restoration, but also the services offered by his other companies—Fiddler Roofing NM, and Zia Roofing. Fix My Roof, LLC, is committed to restoring existing roofs for a fraction of the cost of roof replacement while maximizing a positive impact on the environment by embracing environmentally responsible practices and educating the greater community about environmental stewardship. Headquartered in Santa Fe, John’s three roofing companies have completed both residential and commercial jobs in Santa Fe, Los Alamos, El Dorado, Albuquerque, Rio Rancho, Cochiti, Las Cruces, Alamogordo, Silver City, and many more locations. John, a long-time supporter of “All Things Real Estate,” has returned to the radio show in 2020, as one of the program’s most trusted content providers.

Santa Fe Vacation Rentals, LLC, Update:

Donna Jones White, Owner and Qualifying Broker of Santa Fe Vacation Rentals, LLC, will offer some observations on the show’s theme, and also remind the audience about her company’s role in maintaining a collection of rental options for not only vacation guests, but also those who choose to come to Santa Fe and are seeking a furnished 30-day or long-term unfurnished property. Consumers from around the globe turn to Donna’s company to aid them in finding comfortable and high-quality residences for their stays in our community. As one of the most popular commentators over the years on the “All Things Real Estate” radio show, Donna has returned in 2020 to offer her monthly observations on a variety of important Santa Fe real estate and business issues.

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 14 Brahma Lane with his Sotheby’s International Realty broker colleague Drew Lamprich. Rey will also ask Drew to reflect on how he pursues his work, while continuing to deal with the impact of coronavirus. Regarding Drew’s listing—he wants to introduce The Shadow House, located in Santa Fe, and the winner of six AIA regional awards: Intellectual, contemporary design by architect Antoine Predock playing on the relationship between light and shadows to create an ever-changing interior mood. The 24-foot-high entry features a massive suspended glass cube, accented by ribbons of light from long, slender skylights, glowing fiber-optics at night. A tiny portal beams in light to signal the winter solstice in the entry tower. Anchoring the house, a unique water feature courses down a 24-foot x 30-foot gently sloping courtyard of ancient Chinese pavers and evokes the sound of a mountain stream. A central 80-foot hallway, eminently suitable for artwork, leads to a large glass door framing Chicoma Peak to the west. The spacious living / dining room highlights the interplay of light and shadow, faces the courtyard water feature, and has a striking fireplace, flanked by two tall glass display cases. Adjacent to the kitchen is a multi-purpose den leading to the upper end of the courtyard and thence to an outside patio. The kitchen is the epitome of form + function, with a central stone island and complimented by a spacious butler’s pantry. The master bedroom suite has an ingenious master bathroom with custom basaltina tub and built-in reclining chaise, and is privately located from the guest suite. The essence of the interior, including a Zen courtyard facing the tatami alcove off the master bedroom, appeals to those with a contemplative, academic side. The private, wood-lined office has a full bathroom and walk-in closet, adaptable as a third bedroom. Superb attention to detail and choice of materials is evident throughout the house—from the patinated copper wall along the entry corridor to the guest suite, the overhead louvres along the central hallway oriented to give maximum light in winter and minimum in summer, Philippe Starck steam shower with glass surround.

In the second hour of the show, join Rey and his guest co-host Kevin Skelly, Graduate Master Builder and Principal at home construction firm K.M. Skelly, Inc., for a continuation of the first hour theme of how we are trying our best to “pave” a new road for ourselves, as we deal with coronavirus, and other matters impacting our lives at this historic point in history. Kevin will speak to how he and his home design and construction team are continuing in their client efforts, while observing social distancing requirements dictated by our current health situation. Also included in the conversation will be an update of Kevin’s roster of residential building projects in 2020. K.M. Skelly, Inc., has perfected a strategy that concentrates on customer service and quality products by giving attention to the details in every project. Kevin Skelly is a Certified Green Professional and a Graduate Master Builder with over 35 years of industry experience. Living in Santa Fe for more than 20 years, Kevin has developed a love for Santa Fe “style” that incorporates simple lines and reflects the landscape’s natural beauty. Accepting a limited number of projects each year, K.M. Skelly, Inc., is able to build a lasting trust with every client, transforming their visions into reality. Kevin, is continuing his commentator role in 2020 on the “All Things Real Estate” radio show, offering his valuable and well-regarded observations on a variety of home construction issues.

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; and Dollars4Schools. 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.
