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 special guests on “Super Bowl Sunday” for a discussion of critical real estate issues that will be impacted by the outcome of the March mayoral and city council elections in Santa Fe. Gregg Antonsen, Qualifying Broker and Senior Vice President of the Santa Fe operation of Sotheby’s International Realty, and Cyndi Conn, Executive Director of Creative Santa Fe, will join Rey in offering thoughts on this matter, including the encouragement of home owners, buyers, sellers and renters to participate in the upcoming elections.

2018 Real Estate in Santa Fe and Elections: Rey will offer some thoughts on home buyer and seller activity and issues that may occupy the time of consumers in 2018. He will also speak to the theme of Sunday’s show offering observations on the electoral process that voters in Santa Fe will pursue leading up to and on March 6. In addition, Rey will remind the audience of the important role that the real estate community is playing in the aftermath of the hurricanes that impacted our nation in the summer and early fall of 2017. 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 2017. 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 three storms that impacted Texas, Florida and Puerto Rico (go to:events.org/hurricane to contribute). Realogy is the parent company of Sotheby’s International Realty, Inc.
Sotheby’s International Realty in Santa Fe: Gregg Antonsen, who has been the Senior Vice President and Qualifying Broker at Sotheby’s International Realty Santa Fe (SIR) since 2011, will bring his more than 30 years of real estate experience to the show’s conversation. As manager of the three offices, associate brokers and staff that comprise SIR’s presence in Santa Fe, Gregg fully understands the important role that home buying and selling plays in our city’s economy. As such, Gregg will underscore during the show why participating in the March elections is critical to the residents of our community.
Creative Santa Fe: As Executive Director of this well-regarded non-profit, Cyndi Conn brings over 15 years of expertise in the field of contemporary art and economic development to the conversation. Given that Creative Santa Fe’s mission is to leverage Santa Fe’s unique sense of place—in an effort to reframe critical issues and drive positive change—Cyndi will underscore why the outcome of the March elections is critical to the residents of our city. On February 15 (6 - 7:30 pm) at the New Mexico History Museum, Creative Santa Fe is sponsoring the “Create the Vote Santa Fe 2018” panel discussion of the Santa Fe mayoral candidates. The "Create" initiative is comprised of people, businesses and organizations working in the creative industries in Santa Fe. Its members recognize that the 2018 mayoral and city council elections give Santa Feans the chance to discuss the strengths and challenges of our city and to debate a vision for the city in the next four years and beyond.
