This Sunday—March 1—is the first in a series of shows in 2020 that will focus on the qualities of leadership in real estate, business and community activities, that impact the residents of Santa Fe. Over many decades, March 1 has coincidentally served as a date on the calendar when a significant number of cultural, economic, political, international and sports events have occurred. Some of these special occasions will be used this Sunday, to underscore the discussion of leadership.


In the first hour of the show, join Rey and his guest co-host—Stephen Etre, owner of Stephen’s, A Consignment Gallery—as well as Domenic Etre, for a discussion of how this well-regarded Santa Fe gallery, is recognized for offering products and services of value to home owners, buyers and sellers from around the country.

Real Estate Broker Observations: Besides speaking to the theme of the show, Rey will also offer some thoughts on the focus of real estate brokers as they work with home buyers and sellers in March 2020.

Stephen’s, A Consignment Gallery Review: Stephen Etre, Owner of Stephen’s, A Consignment Gallery, will reflect on a variety of activities that make the gallery a “leader” in offering consumers unique art, antiques, jewelry, furniture and home accessories. Besides sharing his own thoughts on the qualities of leadership that successful business professionals bring to their work, Stephen will also review the gallery’s successful estate sales activity staged at properties all over northern New Mexico; working with consumers during the early months of 2020; and the mission of the gallery to “give back” to the Santa Fe community. Stephen will also highlight the gallery’s nationally-known “Spring Sale,” staged over the Mother’s Day weekend in May, which attracts buyers from around the United States and offers some of the greatest value to those who wish to furnish their home with a wide-variety of items. Joining Rey and Stephen in the conversation is Domenic Etre, the newest member of the team of professionals working at the gallery. With more than 13,000 square feet of display space, the gallery, as part of the Santa Fe community for nearly 40 years, is proud of its involvement in local charities as well as cultural and educational organizations. The team at the gallery has a deep commitment to building local and sustainable community relationships. For the eleventh year in a row, Stephen’s gallery is serving as one of the major corporate supporters of “All Things Real Estate,” with Mr. Etre offering monthly commentary throughout 2020.

Rey’s “Real Estate Recommendation”: Rey’s weekly real estate recommendation will offer some suggestions on how to make the home buying and selling process a bit easier, more efficient and less time consuming for consumers. An ongoing recommendation that Rey offers is to see his listing of a 10-acre parcel of land, just nine miles east of Abiquiu, and situated above the Rio Chama, with 360-degree vistas (for information, see the "Unique Destination" section on
