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, for a discussion of the motivations that drive people to pursue their own real estate interests.

In June, 1854, the Gadsden Purchase was finalized by our national government. The eventual treaty that was created by this purchase was between the United States and Mexico, in which our nation agreed to pay Mexico $10 million for a 29,670-square-mile portion of Mexico that later became part of Arizona and New Mexico. The Gadsden Purchase provided the land necessary for a southern transcontinental railroad, which had a major influence on the development of real estate in our nation.
Using this historic occasion as a theme for the broadcast—especially given that it relates to land in New Mexico—Rey, Bonnie and their guests will discuss what drives people to purchase a new home.

Real Estate Brokers And Buyer Clients: Rey will share some observations on the variety of reasons that motivate home purchases among buyer clients. 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. In addition, Rey will remind the audience that the Sotheby's International Realty® brand has partnered with New Story, a non-profit organization that puts 100 percent of donations toward transforming dangerous living environments into communities of safe, sustainable homes, for $6,000 a home.

Community Association Management Update: Bonnie will offer her thoughts on the theme of the show, with observations on what she has discovered are reasons that home buyers wish to purchase properties in home owner association communities. Bonnie will also update the audience on current issues that residents within home and condo community association neighborhoods are facing at this point in 2018. Bonnie will also review the elements of the second hour of the show when she and her guests will address timely community association matters important to home owners, buyers and sellers. This month, Bonnie and her guests will offer the second part of a discussion regarding a variety of community association maintenance issues. Based in Santa Fe, New Mexico, Westgate Properties specializes in the management of multi-tenant commercial properties and homeowner associations.

In addition, Al will remind the audience of The Club's commitment to the community, as well as provide an update on special events occurring at The Club in the early summer of 2018.
