All Things Real Estate: - First Hour September 30, 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 hour of the show, join Rey and his guest co-host, Bonnie Davis, Professional Community Association Manager of Westgate Properties, LLC, and their guests, as they mark an event in U.S. sports history that sets the theme for the program.
On September 30, 1927, at Yankee Stadium in the Bronx, New York, Yankees slugger Babe Ruth belted his 60th home run of the season, breaking the record of 59 he set in 1921. This record of home runs in a single season of Major League Baseball would stand until 1961, when Roger Maris—also of the NY Yankees—hit 61 home runs.
Given that the expression "hitting a home run" means that you do something that is very successful—and in the spirit of Babe Ruth's achievement—the show’s discussion will focus on how real estate professionals are always hoping to attain this goal for their buyer and seller clients.
Real Estate Brokers and Their Clients: Rey will share some observations on how “hitting a home run” for home buyer and seller clients requires the need to address numerous issues to ensure a successful transaction. Rey will also offer his weekly “Rey’s Real Estate Recommendation,” which is designed to make the home buying and selling process a bit easier and more enjoyable for consumers.
Community Association Management Update: Bonnie will offer her thoughts on the theme of the show, including how she, as professional community association manager, works hard to achieve a “home run” for the residents of homeowner (HOA) and condo (COA) association neighborhoods. Bonnie will also update the audience on current issues that residents within HOA and COA communities are facing at this point in 2018. In addition, Bonnie will review the elements of the second hour of the show when she and her guests will address the elements of budgeting in community associations. Based in Santa Fe, New Mexico, Westgate Properties specializes in the management of multi-tenant commercial properties and homeowner associations. Their goal is to promote community through highly responsive management with the aim that quality of life, quality of work and the value of one’s real estate investment is improved.
The Club at Las Campanas Report: Al Antonez, the General Manager and COO of The Club at Las Campanas, will join Rey in a conversation about the ways he and his team strive for the goal of “hitting a home run” for the members of The Club. Al will also review 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 has and will continue to showcase throughout the rest of the year. This includes a series of special lectures and presentations of renowned business leaders, music performers and authors, The Club is known for offering an extraordinary setting to enjoy an ideal life in Santa Fe. As one of the nation’s most regarded country club destinations, The Club was not only recognized as a Platinum Club of America for 2014 - 2016, it is also known for its deep commitment to the people and environment, as well as programs that help to make Santa Fe a better community. The Club’s amenities include two championship Jack Nicklaus Signature Golf Courses; a well-equipped fitness center; tennis and spa facility with seven synthetic clay courts; one of the finest equestrian facilities in the Southwest; and, the casual and fine dining provided at The Club’s Hacienda Clubhouse.
Open House of the Week: Rey will review the attributes of 1433 Seville Road, with his Sotheby’s International Realty broker colleague KC Martin. This lovely three-bedroom residence is located on a fully enclosed acre with lush, irrigated gardens, featuring solar electric for the entire property; an updated heating system; a light and bright living room with a gas fireplace and a huge picture window; and, a raised formal dining area, and chef’s kitchen with a large Farmhouse sink and stainless appliances. The home is located right in the middle of Santa Fe, yet offers a tranquil setting, feeling like the countryside, with easy neighborhood walking and a nearby trail which leads to the Santa Fe Botanical Garden, as well as being minutes to all shopping, hospital, and freeway access.
In the second hour of the show, join host Bonnie Davis of Westgate Properties, LLC, and her special guests as they feature a discussion on community association budgeting and other current real estate issues. Bonnie’s special guest, Kevin Brennan of Brennan Tax & Advisory, will review a variety of matters associated with creating an effective operating budget for a community association, including developing line items, historical trend versus zero based budgeting, replacement reserves, and receivables. In addition, Bonnie’s regular content providers will join in the conversation:
