All Things Real Estate: First Hour - November 4, 2018
In the first hour of the show, join Rey and guest co-host Al Antonez, General Manager/COO of The Club at Las Campanas—and other guests for a special pre-election and the ending of Daylight-Saving Time-inspired discussion of business and real estate issues.
The U.S. 2018 midterm elections will be held on Tuesday, November 6, 2018. All 435 seats in the U.S. House of Representatives and 35 of the 100 seats in the U.S. Senate (including one in New Mexico) will be contested. In addition, 39 state and territorial governorships (including the race in New Mexico), as well as numerous other state and local elections will also be contested. In addition, there are a number of ballot measures being offered that will impact the lives of most home owners, buyers, sellers and renters.
Prior to the elections, on Sunday, November 4, Daylight-Saving Time (DST) will end at 2 a.m., meaning that clocks need to be turned backward by one hour to accommodate a return to Standard Time.
Real Estate Broker Update: Rey will offer some thoughts on the importance of participating in the midterm elections by casting a vote that each registered voter in the nation has the constitutionally-granted right to exercise. The outcome of the elections will impact issues important to every home owner, buyer and seller. Rey will also reflect on what it means to all consumers to gain an hour of time, as Daylight-Saving Time ends.
The Club at Las Campanas Report: Al Antonez will join Rey in a discussion of the importance of voting during the midterm elections, as well as the value of having an extra hour of time on Sunday to enjoy all that Santa Fe has to offer. Al will also offer a review of the amenities The Club offers to its members; the activities The Club is pursuing at this point in 2018; as well as the range of unique events it will continue to showcase in the New Year.

The Club’s members formed the Las Campanas Community Fund in 2003 to do even more to address the vital needs in the area. This endowment fund, which is administered in partnership with the Santa Fe Community Foundation, has grown significantly since its inception and provides annual grants to a range of non-profit organizations in the Santa Fe area.

Rey’s “Real Estate Recommendation”: As has been the case for the past month, Rey’s weekly real estate recommendation offers some specific thoughts on the importance of voting during this year’s midterm elections. Though early, as well as absentee voting options are about to end for New Mexican residents who are registered to vote, there is always the choice of voting on election day, Tuesday, November 6. Participating in the electoral process is the most direct way for home owners to have influence on who serves in local, state and Federal government positions.
