All Things Real Estate: First Hour - November 11, 2018
In the first hour of the show, join Rey and guest co-host Stephen Etre, Owner of Stephen’s, A Consignment Gallery, and their guests for a discussion of timely business and real estate issues. The show will also mark the celebration of Veterans Day, an occasion that always occurs on November 11 and honors our nation’s veterans for their patriotism, love of country, and willingness to serve and sacrifice for American values and ideals.
Real Estate Broker Update: Rey will offer some thoughts on the importance of Veterans Day, as well as why veterans find a career in real estate to be a rewarding pursuit and why veterans are a valuable constituency for home buying.
Stephen’s, A Consignment Gallery Review: Stephen Etre, Owner of Stephen’s, A Consignment Gallery will address the occasion of Veterans Day, as well as summarizing the success his gallery enjoyed when hosting their annual “Fall Sale” last month. With more than 13,000 square feet of display space, the gallery is well-known as a place that consumers—along with real estate professionals—have gone to for more than 36 years to find unique art, antiques, jewelry, furniture, and home accessories. Stephen will also offer his thoughts on business activity in Santa Fe as we move towards the holiday season.
Santa Fe Area Home Builders Association News: Rey will join in a conversation with Kim Shanahan, Executive Officer of the Santa Fe Area Home Builders Association (SFAHBA), regarding the theme for the first hour of the show. Kim will also address a variety of timely home-building and remodeling issues, including his take on the state of the construction industry at this point in 2018. Recently, Kim announced his plans to transition out of the SFAHBA Executive Officer position by the end of 2018. In what many characterize as an amazing 10 years since Kim went from being the association’s Board President in 2008, to assuming the Executive Officer duties, Kim noted that it “has been an honor and a privilege to serve our members and our industry on a local, state, and national level.” Kim intends to stay active as a SFAHBA builder member and will continue to volunteer on many levels. Rey will review many of Kim’s accomplishments while serving as the association’s Executive Officer, as well as obtain his thoughts on next steps in his ongoing commitment to the community. As a reminder, tune in to the SFAHBA’s weekly radio show “Green Building”—which Kim hosts—airing just before the “All Things Real Estate” program, beginning at 11 am (Mountain Time) each Sunday on KTRC’s 1260AM and 103.7FM (also heard at the same time via the “Listen Now” link at ATREradio.com).
The Northern New Mexico Air Alliance Report: Stuart Kirk, Executive Director of “Fly Santa Fe”, will discuss how this non-profit group of businesses and attractions of the Santa Fe region combine their forces to underscore the value of using the Santa Fe Regional Airport for business and tourist travel to and from northern New Mexico. Stuart will also highlight a special raffle drawing that Fly Santa Fe is sponsoring that offers a variety of gift awards, including a grand prize of airfare and accommodations for two to London! The proceeds from the drawing will be used to fund an important study being conducted by a nationally-recognized airport consulting company. The completed study will provide suggestions for developing more non-stop destinations from the Santa Fe Regional Airport, with the goal of making northern New Mexico and even more desirable destination for consumers from around the country.
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.
