On June 6, 2021, the All Things Real Estate (ATRE) radio show is marking 12 years of offering timely real estate news and commentary to home owners, buyers and sellers in Santa Fe and across the nation. ATRE is also comprised of a website and podcasts of previous shows can be listened to here.
Launched in June 2009 by Rey Post — a Santa Fe-based associate broker with Sotheby’s International Realty® — the All Things Real Estate radio program airs live for two hours each Sunday (12 – 2 p.m. Mountain Time) on KTRC 1260 AM and 103.7 FM, and streams to a global audience on SantaFe.com as well as via the “Listen Now” link at the ATRE website. Each week, Rey hosts the first hour of the ATRE radio show, while professionals with business and real estate-related companies either host, or co-host with him, the second hour of the program.
“Hutton Broadcasting and SantaFe.com join the public in congratulating Rey and his team for consistently providing some of the best content offered on a radio show over the past 12 years,” said Scott Hutton, owner and general manager of Hutton Broadcasting. “We are proud that All Things Real Estate is one of our flagship programs, as well as being one of the most popular radio show destinations in the city. Our hope is that Rey continues to host one of the finest radio shows available to consumers.”
“Twelve years! Congratulations, Rey, on reaching another milestone,” stated Gregg Antonsen, senior vice president and qualifying broker of Sotheby’s International Realty® of Santa Fe. “The informative analysis that you and your guests provide about Santa Fe’s real estate market, as well as general news, information, and trends about our city, provides invaluable information to your listeners. I have been pleased and proud to have been a guest on your show on several occasions and have always been impressed with your advance research and preparation, professionalism and the manner in which you — week after week — provide an in-depth and authentic presentation of our city, our lifestyle and values. You are an exceptional individual at the helm of a remarkable program. Here’s wishing you all the best as you enter the next 12 years!”
“For 12 faithful years, Rey Post and his ATRE show have been a significant contributors to the real estate community in New Mexico,” stated Steve Riemann, the president of the Santa Fe Title Company, and the very first commentator on the program in 2009. “We have all learned; we have all enjoyed; we have all benefitted from the show and its varied guests. Congratulations, Rey. We are all grateful from your faithful contributions, insights, and energies!”
Since 2009, ATRE has been supported by a some of the best real estate-related companies, nonprofit groups, event organizations, and well-known businesses in New Mexico. Their representatives regularly contribute commentary to the radio show and content to the ATRE blog (roster of current supporters on homepage at atreradio.com)
Besides airing from the KTRC studio, the ATRE show has also broadcast remotely from more than 100 unique locations, including real estate broker open houses; nonprofit events and major public gatherings such as the Santa Fe Area Home Builders Association annual “Home Show” and “Haciendas, A Parade of Homes” tour; the Santa Fe Concorso rare car gathering; and locations in Northern New Mexico during the 2019 airing of the show’s monthly series, “This Is Taos.”
The ATRE program was nominated in 2011 for a Santa Fe Chamber of Commerce Business Excellence Award; was designated a national “Newsmaker” by RISMedia, the #1 source in the U.S. for residential news and information, and has been profiled in multiple media stories, as well as the corporate newsletter of Sotheby’s International Realty®.
How The ATRE Show Has Grown
The ATRE show has grown from solely focusing on real estate issues to a program that now offers timely business, community, cultural, and nonprofit commentary (always with a thread of real estate running through each broadcast). Rey and his collaborators use the ATRE show as a place to create a “story” about a variety of issues, offering themes around special calendar dates and events that enhance the show’s content for its listeners.
The radio show has been honored to feature not only some of the best in the real estate trade, but also a variety of non-real estate personalities. To illustrate the diverse content the ATRE show has offered over the years, a handful of these special radio show guests include: former CIA operative Valerie Plame; movie producer and Kevin Costner business partner, Jim Wilson (Dances with Wolves); actors starring in the movie 50 To 1 (filmed in New Mexico); former Director of the CBS News Poll, Kathy Frankovic; Indianapolis 500 race car legends Johnny Rutherford, Parnelli Jones, and Al Unser, Sr; and former National Association of Governors Chairman, Vermont Governor Jim Douglas. In addition, since he was elected in 2018, Santa Fe Mayor Alan Webber has been a regular guest on the ATRE program, offering timely information on business, community, and real estate issues important to the residents of the city.
The ATRE website and blog have also become valuable destinations for information on the radio show’s broad-casts, as well as timely real estate, cultural, and community information. The corporate office of Sotheby’s International Realty® is fully aware of the ATRE program, with the former president of the company coincidentally being at the Santa Fe brokerage office the day in 2011 that the Santa Fe Chamber of Commerce Business Excellence Award nomination for ATRE was announced.
