All Things Real Estate: First Hour - August 12, 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 and second hours of the show this Sunday, join Rey Post and his guests for a remote broadcast of the program from 36 Plaza del Centro in the Las Campanas neighborhood of Santa Fe. This is one of the special homes available for the public to tour as part of the 26th annual “Haciendas, A Parade of Homes” (Parade) tour, sponsored by the Santa Fe Area Home Builders Association (SFAHBA). This nationally-known event offers tours of 14 of the finest new construction or total remodel properties built by some of Santa Fe’s best home contractors.
36 Plaza del Centro is an ultra-contemporary, open-concept and horseshoe-shaped custom residence, with innumerable custom features—from the doors and horizontal-grained Echo Wood veneer cabinets, to multiple water features, extensive metal work, and an indoor/outdoor banco piercing a wall of glass. The natural siting of this home, coupled with 10-foot sliding doors and multiple outdoor living spaces, captures beautiful Sangre de Cristo and Jemez mountain views for miles.
The Parade tour—running August 10-12 and August 17-19—gives the public an opportunity to not only see this exquisite property, but also the 13 other entrants in the event. In addition, the Parade provides consumers with the chance to meet face to face with home builders, architects, landscape architects, interior designers, and other home-construction professionals. Tickets for the entire event are only $15 and can be purchased at the door of any of the Parade homes. Please consult the free Parade magazine for tour details—available in many stores throughout Santa Fe—as well as being on-line at SFAHBA.com.
For the eighth year in a row, the “All Things Real Estate “(ATRE) radio show has been asked to broadcast from select homes during the two Sundays of the Parade. Besides airing the program from 36 Plaza del Centro this Sunday, ATRE will also broadcast for two hours on August 19 from the “Grand Hacienda” winning property (location announced on August 14 at the SFAHBA gala dinner).
Rey is honored to have been asked by the SFAHBA—for the third year in a row—to serve as one of the eight judges of the homes competing in the Parade. Serving in a group with three other judges, Rey and his colleagues toured specific Parade homes on August 7, offering recommendations to the SFAHBA for the various awards that they give to Parade participants competing in the event. Rey brought his experience as a real estate broker to the judging exercise, while others who served as judges included well-respected home builders, architects, interior designers and business leaders from the Santa Fe community.
SFAHBA Tour: Joining Rey to kick off the two-hour broadcast this Sunday, is Kim Shanahan, Executive Officer of the SFAHBA. Kim will offer commentary on the mission of his association, the elements of the Parade, the home builders involved in this annual competition, as well as highlights of the homes being offered to the public for tour. As a professional home builder by experience, Kim will also offer his thoughts on the qualities of 36 Plaza del Centro.
Prull Custom Builders: Throughout the two-hour ATRE broadcast, several members of the team that designed, built and then furnished this custom property will join Rey to offer commentary on the “story” that speaks to the how this custom residence became one of the entrants in this year’s Parade. William “Will” G. Prull, President and Partner/Owner of Prull Custom Builders will review how he and his award-winning team created the overall construction plan. Joining Will in the conversation will be renowned architect Craig Hoopes, Principal at Hoopes + Associates Architects, for a discussion about the design he created for this stunning property. Also offering commentary is Kurt Lauer, Project Supervisor at Prull Custom Builders; landscape architect Solange Serquis, Principal at Serquis + Associates; and interior designer Paul Rau, Principal at Paul Rau Interiors. As a special element to the conversation, the owner of the property will offer thoughts on the home design and building process.
Business and Organization Leaders Offer Parade Commentary: Two highly regarded business and community leaders in Santa Fe will join Rey to offer their own observations on the qualities of 36 Plaza del Centro, as well as the important role that the Parade plays in the Santa Fe region: President of Fix My Roof, LLC, John Grisak and Al Antonez, General Manager/COO of The Club at Las Campanas. Both John and Al have been guests on the ATRE program during previous Parade events, providing valuable historic context to this major event.
