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.

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 the next in a series of broadcasts that addresses the ways that those who work in real estate, other businesses, or community organizations are pursuing their lives and professions while dealing with the current coronavirus situation, as well as other current issues. The show’s theme will speak to the rights that people in our nation enjoy, as represented by the flag of the United States. This Sunday marks the annual celebration of Flag Day, first officially and nationally observed by law in 1949.
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.

Rey’s “Real Estate Recommendation":

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 1474 Bishops Lodge Road with his Sotheby’s International Realty broker colleague Drew Lamprich. Rey will also ask Drew to reflect on how coronavirus has impacted his personal life, and real estate work. Regarding Drew’s listing---located on nearly an acre beside the Big Tesuque River, this property---a short drive to downtown Santa Fe---is steeped in the history of the Old Spanish Trail. The original adobe home has been transformed and expanded, and new structures have been added, resulting in an enviable compound consisting of the main residence, a garage, a studio, a private office, and a guesthouse. No expense was spared in selecting the finishes, from the diamond plaster walls and the handsome flooring to the distinctive accents in the baths and kitchen. A glorious light pervades the interiors of the main house, which features two bedrooms, two baths, a living area, two dining areas, a well-equipped kitchen, and an outstanding entertaining portal overlooking the river. On the other side of the compound, a newer structure offers a two-room art studio, a wine cellar, a study, a bath, and a two-car garage on the ground level along with guest quarters—romantically perched amid the treetops on the upper level—that include two bedrooms, a living area, and a bath. The property enchants with its thoughtful landscaping and a path leading to a bench by the river. Beautiful and private, this is a rare opportunity not to be missed.
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 Flag Day-themed discussion, offering commentary on the impact of the ongoing coronavirus situation, and current issues facing our nation. 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.

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.
