All Things Real Estate: - Second Hour September 16, 2018

All Things Real Estate - September 16, 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 guest co-host Scott Robinson—Branch Manager of theGateway Mortgage Group—as they mark a special anniversary and how it applies to the practice of real estate.  
September 16 marks the 236th anniversary (1782) of the first use of the Great Seal of the United States of America. The Great Seal is the official emblem and heraldic device of the United States of America, adopted by our Continental Congress to represent our nation. The Great Seal was intended to demonstrate to the world the ideas and values of our Founders and people, including love of freedom, virtue, honesty, courage, and sacrifice. 
In the spirit of this historic occasion, the theme for the first hour of the show is: real estate professionals recognize that the ideas and values represented by the Great Seal, contribute greatly to why people pursue the American Dream of home ownership.

Real Estate Broker Update: Rey will offer some thoughts on how he and his real estate broker colleagues embrace the tenets associated with the Great Seal and how they can contribute to the real estate buying and selling process. 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.

Gateway Mortgage Group “Home Buyer Tip”: Besides offering his thoughts on the Great Seal-inspired theme of Sunday’s show, Scott will provide his regular mortgage tip that can benefit home buyers who are purchasing a property in collaboration with a lender. The Gateway Mortgage Group is one of the largest privately held mortgage companies in the country, doing its entire mortgage servicing in-house. This business element is important, since it means that Gateway’s customers work directly with them until the time their loan is paid.

Scott Robinson, NMLS 202265, is a licensed Branch Manager with Gateway Mortgage Group, located at 502 West Cordova Road, Suite 1, Santa Fe, New Mexico 87505.

Open House of the Week: Rey will review the attributes of 3174 Viale Trisana with his Sotheby’s International Realty broker colleague Bob Cardinale. In the popular and elegant, gated Villas di Toscana, this three-bedroom and striking two-story Tuscany-style home offers a large cook’s kitchen, stainless steel Viking appliances, lots of counter and cabinet space, a beautifully landscaped yard—which is walled and bricked—and Sangre de Cristo Mountain views. The home’s location is close to the Santa Fe Community College, as well as excellent shopping and restaurants, along with easy access to downtown Santa Fe. 

In the second hour of the show, join Rey for a very special interview with the Mayor of Santa Fe, Alan Webber. Becoming the 43rd mayor of Santa Fe—winning with a landslide victory on March 6—Alan is known as a successful entrepreneur and author and has considerable experience in local, state and Federal government activities. Alan worked as the Editorial Director of the Harvard Business Review; ran for the Democratic nomination for Governor of New Mexico in 2014 (finishing second in a field of five candidates); and in 1995, co-founded the technology business magazine, Fast Company, where he was named Adweek's Editor of the Year in 1999. Alan happily acknowledges his fortunate place—joining many others in Santa Fe—as a proud father and husband.
In the third of a series of quarterly interviews in 2018 on “All Things Real Estate,” Rey will engage Alan this Sunday in a discussion of a variety of issues, including:
—Impressions of the future of the city, eight months after becoming mayor.
—The expectations of residents with their local government.
—Success with stated goals since becoming mayor.
—Special rewards and unexpected challenges encountered while serving the city.
—Thoughts on the city's youth as they become community leaders and future home buyers. 
—Importance of real estate to the economy of Santa Fe, as well as the housing needs of all residents.
—Santa Fe's role with our nation and world.
