All Things Real Estate: Second Hour - June 21, 2020All Things Real Estate
This weekly radio show features host and Sotheby's International Realty's Associate Broker Rey Post (NM REC License #45660), as well as variety of special guests who offer news, information and commentary on current real estate, business, and community issues, important to home owners, buyers and sellers.
The “All Things Real Estate” (ATRE) radio show meets the standards established by the New Mexico Department of Health as an “essential business” (real estate-related and radio service), as defined in the state’s March 23, 2020 public health emergency order relating to the presence of coronavirus. As such, ATRE is committed to bringing timely and informative content to the public from some of the nation’s best business, non-profit, community, and real estate leaders. The guest commentators on this week’s show are emblematic of the quality of professionals who have helped to make ATRE a destination that people from all over the country turn to each Sunday.
In the first hour of the show, join Rey and his guest co-host---Steve Riemann, President of the Santa Fe Title Company ---as they mark Father’s Day. Though the first celebration of Father’s Day occurred in 1910, it was not until May 1, 1972, when President Richard Nixon signed Proclamation 4127, which declared Father's Day as a national holiday, with the first official celebration on June 18, 1972. "Let each American make this Father's Day an occasion for renewal of the love and gratitude we bear to our fathers, increasing and enduring through all the years," Nixon wrote in the document. Rey and Steve will also give some focus to the ways that those who work in real estate, other businesses, or community organizations, are pursuing their lives and professions, while dealing with the current coronavirus situation.
Steve Riemann Updates On The Home Buying and Selling Process:
Noting that the businesses of Santa Fe continue to slowly, and safely open to more consumer activities, Steve will offer an update on how he and his team members are using unique tools, and processes to meet the needs of home buyers, and sellers. Steve will also provide an update on the closing process in the Santa Fe region, as well as the state of the real estate market, and the importance of title insurance in all home buying/selling transactions. As a certified instructor of real estate in New Mexico, Steve will also offer some thoughts on why consumers should strive to partner with well-educated real estate professionals. The Santa Fe Title Company is committed to providing the best service possible for home buyers, including top notch closing services and delivering title insurance protection covering invalid liens, false claim of rights, and heirs that have not been identified, to name a few. Steve was the very first guest on the ATRE show in June 2009, and has brought a wealth of information to the program about the real estate process during his 10+ years as a commentator. He continues as a regular commentator on the program in 2020.
Santa Fe Area Home Builders Association Update:
Besides offering some observations about the Father’s Day celebration, Miles D. Conway, the Executive Officer of the Santa Fe Area Home Builders Association (SFAHBA), will also join Rey and Steve in a discussion of home construction issues important to the agenda of the members of the association. In addition, Miles will provide an update on the efforts of the SFAHBA to offer a “virtual” version of their highly popular Haciendas, A Parade of Homes tour, as well as a review of what he hopes to accomplish for the remainder of 2020, in his new role as the day-to-day executive of the SFAHBA. Raised in Breckenridge, Colorado, Miles moved to the Santa Fe area in 1995. He lives in Rio en Medio, with his wife of 22 years, Mikahla Beutler, and son Tilman. Prior to serving as executive officer for the SFAHBA, Miles had a long career with New Mexico labor unions, serving as a communications professional and political coordinator for both the public sector, and the professional trades union locals. Most recently, he was a fundraising and communications coordinator at New Energy Economy, working to bring the Santa Fe community greater accessibility to local renewable energy resources. For the 10th year in a row, the SFAHBA is continuing in 2020 as a corporate supporter of, and content provider for the “All Things Real Estate” radio show.
