Williams Square of Las Colinas, TX, Executive Suites Team Room for 8 People

In real estate on July 24, 2012 at 9:25 pm

Copy and paste information about this center: The business center in Las Colinas Williams Square is in a landmark building located in the planned mixed-use development of Las Colinas. It is the home of the largest bronze equestrian sculpture in the world, which can be seen from the business center’s floor-to-ceiling windows. The Mustang statues in the building’s courtyard are one-and-a-half times lifesize and are a well-known tourist attraction. The private La Cima Club on the 26th floor is the only location in the Metroplex where both downtown Dallas and Fort Worth can be seen. Many Fortune 500 corporations and companies have headquarters or operations in Las Colinas, and this address is one of the best known and most prestigious.

There are private offices available as well as big team spaces.  For example, there is a large team room available, furnished for 12 people.  At $4180 per month, this is a great deal considering the amount of capital expenditure a company of 12 would have to outlay to open and furnish an office for 12. This setup is complete and ready to go, a team of salespeople or telemarketers could get going in less than 48 hours.

For this team space or other private offices at Williams Square in Las Colinas, please call or email us at 800-773-8092 or inquire@officeblvd.com

TriWest Plaza – ClubCorp Building, Executive Suites, Great Value in Dallas

In Uncategorized on July 12, 2012 at 10:20 pm

This office building is located in North Dallas on 635 near I-35.  It’s a nice high rise with great views of the city.  Plenty of free surface parking too.  There is also a health club called Club Corp, which gives free health memberships to tenants.  This is great for someone who doesn’t have time to go to the gym.  Now you can go to the gym, take a shower, get dressed and go to work in the same building.

This center is managed by General Manager, Debbie Richards. Debbie is a very hard working manager, and she will give you a sweet deal on an office if you are serious about leasing.  She has single offices as well as large mini-suites available.  Price-wise, in comparison with other Executive Suites in Dallas, her prices are more favorable.

The only negative that I see about the center is that currently there is construction along 635 to expand the freeway, which may turn someone off who is driving by.  This does not affect getting in and out of the center.  The back road, Forest Lane, which leads to both I-35 and 635, takes you right to the parking entrance. Also, the construction will not last forever.  If you can withstand the construction, you will get a great deal on a Class A office.

If you would like a quote on an office or schedule a tour, please call JC Nguyen of Office Boulevard. Cell phone is 214-435-8623 or email jcnguyen@officeblvd.com.

Virtual Office, Why Do I need One?

In real estate on July 7, 2010 at 5:26 am

In this blog, I’d like to focus on virtual offices, pros and cons,  and what to look for when you are searching for a virtual office for your business.

First off, let’s look at what a virtual office is and what it does for you.  Essentially, when you are leasing a virtual office, you are not leasing a physical office space in an executive suites.  Instead, you are paying for services that the executive suites offer you, and at the same time, giving your customers the appearance that you do occupy physical space.  I hate to use the words “give the appearance”, but the reality is, that is what you are doing.   Face it, office space is expensive, and if you are a struggling business or a startup, it’s hard to shell out $500-$1000 for an office every month.  All your customers see is your business address, and if you are not there 90% of the time, then a virtual office might be your best option.

Let’s highlight the virtual services that are offered through professional executive suites.

  • A professional mailing address.  This is most crucial since it identifies your business with the professional location and allows you to collect mail and packages at this location.  The cost for this service range from $50-$100 per month.  Sure you can go out and get a PO Box and pay $5/month, but let’s not fool anybody here, you should never use a PO Box as your professional address.
  • Personalized Answering Service.  This is an option  that you do not have to take, but it’s a great benefit to your business.  The cost for this service is anywhere from $50-100 per month, and what you get is a live receptionist who answers calls in your company name during business hours.  The calls then goes to a voice mail and you can choose methods of getting alerts, or you can choose  for the call to transfer instantly to your cell phone, home phone or any phone you designate.  This last option does have some added costs, but well worth it if you are in a business where you cannot afford to miss any calls, and adding a receptionist to your front line only makes you look better.
  • Conference Room Access – This is also optional but this option is fantastic if you need to meet with clients once in a while.  The cost ranges from $25-$50 per hour and what you get is a nicely furnished conference room to meet with that important client from out-of-town for an hour.  If you think you will need more than a few hours a month, consider prepaying for  a conference room package.  For example, at Premier Business Centers, you can rent a conference room anytime during business hours for $35 per hour.  At the same time, you can prepay $160 per month and get 16 hours, that works out to $10 an hour!  A nice savings if you know you will need to use quite a few hours of conference time each month.  An important note: conference time cannot be rolled over, this is not a cell phone plan, people.

Let’s look at the pros and cons, in bullet points.  If you have any questions, feel free to call me anytime.

Pros

  • Low cost to get started, no overhead.  Literally, $100 can get you started
  • Professional business address
  • Receive the same services as full-time tenants
  • Flexibility to work from home, at the beach, at Starbucks or anywhere you please
  • Most offers month-to-month plans, cancel anytime
  • Most don’t do a credit check to qualify you for a virtual office.
  • On Demand conference or office rentals by the hour
  • When it comes time to lease a full-time office, you can upgrade very easily

Cons

  • Mail not accessible after business hours and weekends
  • Conference room usage is during business hours, in most cases.  Some will offer after hours if you pay an up -charge,  and possibly more charges for security.
  • If you use a lot of conference room time to meet clients or have team meetings, then you might end up paying more than a full-time office, and that’s where you’ll eat up your savings

So, now, what do you look for to make sure you are getting the best virtual office for your company?

  • Choose a physical office that is close to your home.  This will only makes thing easy for you if you need to stop by to pick up your mail, or meet with a client.
  • Pick a respectable company.  This is hard for you since you don’t know what different companies offer and how they can be part of your company growth when the time comes.  For this option, I respectably will ask you to talk to me about this, since I am the expert in this industry and I will give you hard facts to help you determine if a particular executive suites is right for you. For example, a question I may ask you is if you travel in your business and if you meet with clients nationwide or even worldwide.  This will help me focus on companies with nationwide and worldwide presence.
  • Visit the center and ask for a tour of the offices.  Don’t just show up, arrange appointments.  I do this for my clients every day, free of charge.
  • Price is not a huge concern here because most centers are very comparable in prices for virtual office.  Instead, focus on your decision on what you think of the center, the layout, the staff, and picture yourself working in this environment.  The simple reason is, every who starts with a virtual office eventually gets into a full-time office, so make sure you like where your second home is.

Here is my contact information.  If you have any questions, just pick up the phone or email me, I am always available.  I love what I do, and I love helping people find the best deals.  I will work with you no matter where you live, I have a lot of contacts and I know a lot of people 🙂 My services are always free to you, but all I ask is that you call me BEFORE you call the center manager or other search firms.  That way, I can represent you on your behalf .

Dallas Executive Suites, Getting the Most Bang for Your Buck

In real estate on July 2, 2010 at 8:59 pm

Dallas/Ft Worth has one of the best market for executive suites.  Offices are cheaper, relatively, and you get more services for your money.  Take phone and internet services, for example.  Let’s say you call AT & T to install a business phone line and High Speed internet in your home office.  Besides installation cost, your monthly cost is around $100-$120 with taxes.  Not bad.  Now let’s look at what you get for the same amount in an executive suite in Dallas.

  • Phone system with rollover line and voicemail and free local calling*
  • T-1 or T-3 internet, much faster than DSL
  • Telephone answering by a receptionist during business hours…WOW

So you see where I am going with this.  You actually save money by investing in an executive suite.  What else do you get?  I am listing these in bullet points so I don’t go on a tangent. If you have any questions, just call me.  For as low as $399** a month, here is what you get.

  • A private office with a lock and key
  • Furniture, but depending on the center, some of them has a furniture add-on for a few more bucks per month
  • Phone and internet and telephone answering, as mentioned above
  • Fax line, at some centers this is an add-on
  • Usage of luxurious conference rooms, some centers offer up to 55 hours per month!
  • All Utilities (My electric bill is over $500 in the summer at home, so do the math)
  • 24/7 access
  • Kitchen privileges, usually free water and coffee, some offer bagels and doughnuts on certain days
  • Live receptionist to meet and greet your clients, priceless for most professions.  Think about how much you would have to pay a secretary in your traditional office space.  This benefit is worth hundreds of $$$ per month.
  • Short-term leases, usually up to a year is max
  • Copy and mail center, lounges and sometimes fitness centers are benefits of an executive suite
  • A corporate feel.  Your clients are immediately greeted by a receptionist, you won’t have clients wandering down a empty hallway…terrible!
  • Most have free parking for you and your clients.  Downtown Dallas do have paid parking though, can’t avoid that.

I know I listed some benefits in there, but hey, I’m passionate about this.  I think every entrepreneur and small business should be in an executive suite, it just makes perfect sense.  Plus, these centers are great for networking, and the centers have functions where you can meet other businesses and network with them.

Now a little reason why you should let me represent you for an executive suite.  Plain and simple, I am the best. I’m honest, hard-working, and I maintain excellent relationships with my center managers so that when I call them and ask for a reduction in rent for my clients, or a little more service, more conference room time, or even free rent, they usually oblige.  It’s a little bit of an unfair advantage if you use my free service (YES IT’S FREE), but I’m all about saving money, and I will save you money.   I have a 6 yr old and a 1 yr old, I know how to get the most for my money.  Oh, did I tell you I grew up in Dallas? So I know my territory very well too.  Call me or email me your requirements and let me help you get the best deals.

*$399 is the lowest I’ve been able to get.  The average in Dallas is $500-$1000, depending on size and other factors.

How Much Should I Pay for an Executive Suite?

In real estate on June 30, 2010 at 8:44 pm

I come across people everyday who are looking for office space and they want to know how much it would cost to get into executive suites. There are different factors in determining a price for a particular executive suite and I will get into that. But the common misconception is that people expect to pay what they normally pay for traditional office space, and that is just an unfair comparison. The truth is, executive suites range from $3-$10 per sqft, and when I mention that, the calculators in their brain start working overtime, and the result is: I can’t afford that! I need, they would say, 1000 sqft. So you are telling me that it would cost me at least $3000/month for an executive suite? Well, yes, if you need that much space. Executive suites have common areas that are shared by all tenants: conference rooms, reception area, kitchen, restrooms, etc…these common areas are not charged to you directly. It is built into your monthly fee. In a traditional office space, these common areas account for more than 70% of your office. So in reality, you are really paying for about 300 sqft of office space, and at $3/sqft, your monthly cost is $900…much more manageable.

Let’s first talk about the advantages of executive suites over traditional office space. I will just put them down as bullet points so I don’t get into a lengthy discussion and get off topic. If you have any questions, just contact me directly.

  • Very flexible lease terms, month-to-month leases up to one year or longer.  Traditional office requires 3-5 year commitment
  • No HUGE capital outlay to get into an executive suite versus a traditional office space
  • Pay for only the number of offices that your company needs.  If you grow, you can always add more offices when you are ready without affecting the terms of your lease.
  • All NNN costs are included.  This include utilities, CAM or Common Area Maintenance charge, janitorial and taxes.
  • Plug and play, you can move into your office the next day.  Phone and internet are in placed and ready to go.
  • Corporate feel, your clients will feel that you are in the corporate environment and may feel better about working with you.
  • Receptionist meet and greet and telephone answering.  How much would you have to pay to hire your own receptionist?  Think about this one…it’s priceless
  • One price covers all.  Know exactly how much is going out every month.

Disadvantages

  • Higher cost per sqft.  Not bad considering what I included above.
  • Proprietary phone and internet.  You cannot bring in your own system, and you pay for long distance phone usage at list price.

These are factors that will drive a price on executive suites.  Again, in bullet points

  • location, location, location.
  • window office or interior, expect to pay $100 or more for a window office of the same size vs. interior office
  • Class A or Class B
  • Availabilities at that center
  • Square footage, there is a big difference between a 150sqft office and 175sqft office
  • manager’s discretion

That last bullet point is very important, in my opinion, because a manager has to do what is best for his/her center to be profitable, so they will give the best deals to online brokers who have good relationships with them and continually send them quality clients.  Having said that, I’m going to copy and paste my last point to clarify why you need me 🙂

Work with a local, respected online broker who knows the managers and can get you better deals. These brokers are different from the traditional real estate brokers because all they focus on are executive suites. Not all online brokers are created equal. Look for one who is in the same market as you, and seems to know the managers and availabilities and specials. These are the ones who can pick up the phone to their favorite managers and get you extraordinary deals that you can’t get yourself. Their services are free to you, and in most cases, you will get a better deal. The important thing is to contact the broker BEFORE you contact any executive suites managers. This enables the broker to represent you on your behalf.

Orange County Executive Suites, How To Get a Great Deal

In real estate on June 29, 2010 at 10:56 pm

There are over 50 executive suites in Orange County, here are some things to look for when you are shopping for an executive suites.

1. End of the month deals – managers of executive suites are rewarded based on performance. That means that they have to keep their offices full or nearly full. So when the end of the month comes around, expect some specials and incentives for you to sign for the office space. This is the best time to look for office, versus at the beginning of the month.

2. Terms of lease – Never sign for a month-to-month lease. Managers are going to lease the offices to you at the market rate, which includes almost zero discounts. Most centers need a 60 days notice, so essentially your month-to-month lease becomes a 3 months lease. Instead, ask the manager for a 6 or 12 months deal. This is where free rents and discounted rates are possible.

3. Executive suites charge for services like phone and internet…per person. So an office for two is going to be more expensive than for the same office for one. If you think your partner may not be in the office much, lease the office just for yourself, then share the phone and internet with your partner. This will save you about $100 or more per month.

3. Work with a local, respected online broker who knows the managers and can get you better deals. These brokers are different from the traditional real estate brokers because all they focus on are executive suites. Not all online brokers are created equal. Look for one who is in the same market as you, and seems to know the managers and availabilities and specials. These are the ones who can pick up the phone to their favorite managers and get you extraordinary deals that you can’t get yourself. Their services are free to you, and in most cases, you will get a better deal. The important thing is to contact the broker BEFORE you contact any executive suites managers.
