In the first hour of the show, join Rey and his guests for a discussion of how the principles of National Grandparent’s Day can be applied to real estate and business activities.


September 8 is National Grandparent's Day, which was initiated at the grassroots level by a West Virginian grandmother and her husband, who had 15 children, 43 grandchildren, 10 great-grandchildren, and one great-great grandchild. 


Among the purposes of National Grandparent’s Day (besides honoring the role of grandparents in our society), is the goal of helping children become aware of the strength, information and guidance older people can offer. The holiday also underscores the value and importance of civic engagement for all generations. 

Real Estate Broker Observations: Using the show theme as a backdrop, Rey will offer some overview thoughts on the ways that real estate professionals embrace the principles of offering “strength, information and guidance” to their home buying and selling clients. Rey will also speak to the value of civic engagement, embraced by many real estate professionals, as they pursue their day-to-day activities.

Haciendas, A Parade of Homes Overview: Laura Gallegos, Chair of the 27thannual “Haciendas, A Parade of Homes” (Parade) Committee, will join Rey in a discussion of the outcome of this two-week and nationally-known event staged in August. Sponsored by the Santa Fe Area Home Builders Association (SFAHBA), the Parade offered public tours of an array of the finest new construction, or total remodel properties built by some of Santa Fe’s best home contractors. Laura’s welcoming message, as Chair of the organizing committee, can be found in the opening pages of this year’s Parade magazine. Laura will also offer her own thoughts on the show’s theme, and its application to the efforts of SFAHBA members, as they provide strength, information and guidance to their clients, as well as demonstrating a commitment to civic engagement. For the ninth year in a row, the SFAHBA is continuing its role as a corporate supporter of and content provider for the “All Things Real Estate” radio show.
