All Things Real Estate - February 18, 2018

This weekly radio show features host and Sotheby's International Realty's Associate Broker Rey Post (NM REC License #45660) and a variety of special guests offering the best news, information and commentary regarding every aspect of today's real estate market.
In the first hour of the show, join Rey and his guests for a President’s Day-inspired discussion of “leadership and inspiration” in real estate.

Real Estate Brokers Are Leaders: Rey will speak to the concept that the value of leadership in the practice of real estate is in reality becoming the very best version of one’s self. It is recognizing that—no matter how successful one becomes—becoming an even better leader requires a degree of added studying, reading, learning, asking for support and seeking wisdom at all times. Rey will review how real estate brokers embrace these techniques to improve their own leadership credentials, while bringing inspiration to the work that they do with home buyers and sellers, as well as others who play a role in any transaction. Rey will also remind the audience of the important role that the real estate community is playing in the aftermath of Hurricanes Harvey, Irma and Maria. As an example of the real estate community’s commitment to providing assistance, the Realogy Charitable Foundation, a 501 © (3) public charity, was established as Hurricane Harvey approached Texas in late August. The foundation is continuing to raise funds, delivering 100 percent of the proceeds to the American Red Cross to directly help those affected by the storm (go to: events.org/hurricane to contribute). Realogy is the parent company of Sotheby’s International Realty, Inc.

Scott will also provide his regular mortgage tip that can benefit home buyers who are purchasing a property in collaboration with a lender. The Gateway Mortgage Group is one of the largest privately held mortgage companies in the country, doing its entire mortgage servicing in-house.
