Small Businesses Can Now Turn to AllOffice.Space for El Paso Office Needs

Small businesses and entrepreneurs looking for office space in El Paso can connect with AllOffice.Space to find exactly what is needed.

El Paso, TX, USA — Many small businesses and startups often have a hard time finding the small space they need to launch their company. AllOffice.Space connects property owners and those looking for small spaces. The new real estate office in El Paso is the latest addition to a growing number of locations around North America. This newest location is located in the Wells Fargo Plaza, 221 N. Kansas Street.

“We looked at El Paso and saw the area is growing. We especially saw how this border town is welcoming new businesses to the community. The combination means new business owners are headed there,” said Chris Allen, Director of Sales & Marketing for AllOffice.Space. “It’s just a natural fit for us.”

Starting a small business from the ground up has enough headaches, he said. Finding a place to conduct business should not be one of those problems. However, many startups find real estate companies and landlords are simply not willing to take a step out on faith and lease to an untried business concern.

AllOffice.Space connects small office space to the people who need it. Mr. Allen said this can be a freelancer, a small business that has just started, but needs more room or someone with a business idea who needs a place to work away from the house.

“A lot of businesses started at someone’s house. Apple started in a garage. But even Steve Jobs and Steve Wozniak needed a true business address,” Mr. Allen said. “AllOffice.Space does not want anyone to have to work out of a garage forever. We believe small businesses deserve a professional address. That address can be enough to change a maybe into a yes when trying to line up business deals.”

Many of the spaces AllOffice.Space lines up are already furnished. Some allow a new business to bring in what is needed. The whole idea is to match an entrepreneur to exactly what he needs to be a success.

“We know business does not move on a 9-5 schedule. That’s why our offices are open 24/7/366. We put Feb. 29 in there for Leap Year,” Mr. Allen chuckled. “When you are ready, we are ready.”

AllOffice.Space Opens New West Coast Location

San Diego, CA, USA — Already well-established in Toronto and New York, AllOffice.Space is pleased to announce their newest facility in San Diego, Calif. This represents their first foray into the west coast, with additional expansion planned in the near future.

AllOffice.Space is an office leasing specialist company. They specialize in small businesses and startups that are looking for an office but cannot afford the rent or lease in a full building. The company offers flexibility in size and leasing options to suit almost any sized business.

“We were born out of necessity. Large cities have premium prices for office spaces and locations, so many smaller businesses are out of luck when trying to establish themselves or work with clients and the public. By offering a physical office they can work from, businesses are able to grow and flourish,” said Chris Allen of AllOffice.Space.

The San Diego location is the first of what the company hopes will be many on the West Coast. It has been a work in progress for some time but now the company has a solid foothold and ready to serve more clients.

“We knew the West Coast had plenty of options available for us, but we could not find the perfect location. This particular space came available in San Diego, and we took it as quickly as we could. Now that we have established ourselves firmly in California, it is only a matter of time before we can expand further into other states. AllOffice.Space is eventually looking at a location in every state in the union,” continued Allen.

The San Diego location is at 350 10th Ave. San Diego, Calif. Interested parties looking for the perfect office for their business should visit the website.

“We can schedule an appointment to walk through our facility in San Diego as well as answer questions. We can also discuss our other locations if there is interest in them as well,” said Allen.

Banks Tighten Commercial Real Estate Lending and Interest Rate Hikes Are on the Horizon Says the Fed; Opens Window of Opportunity for Alternative Financing

Ascend Capital Partners steps in to fill the void, says Managing Partner Eric Fedewa.

Washington, DC, USA — Federal Reserve Bank Chair Janet Yellen testified that the Fed will likely continue its plans to implement federal funds rate hikes and balance sheet normalization measures in order to gradually raise short and long-term interest rates.

This, along with the May release of the Fed’s senior loan officer survey, highlights a “closing window of opportunity for affordable financing from commercial lenders,” according to Eric Fedewa, Ascend Capital Partners Managing Partner. The senior loan officer survey indicates that there will be a tightening in traditional lending practices for the commercial real estate sector.

With these factors in mind, Fedewa said Ascend Capital Partners can fill some of the void in traditional financing for commercial real estate by offering financing alternatives such as inexpensive institutional debt, bridge financing, and equity.

“The Fed’s May report concurs with the tightening trends we’ve been observing this year in traditional lending for commercial loans. The need for alternative financing is clear,” said Fedewa.

“The tightening of traditional lending sources comes at an inopportune time for investors as the new administration is trying to heat up the U.S. economy,” said Fedewa, noting that a tightening of monetary policies on behalf of the Fed could raise lending costs for alternative and traditional lenders alike.

“The strengthening economy is creating demand, yet traditional financing practices have tightened. Unfortunately, the window in which alternative lending sources can provide inexpensive financing could be limited as potential Fed rate hikes loom on the horizon,” he said.

Ascend Capital Partners has expanded its financial service offerings and added several new offices with strong teams of financial experts in prime market areas.

“We’ve expanded our Washington, DC area headquarters and are adding offices in Boston, New York City, Sarasota, Florida, Austin, and San Francisco. We’ve added new professionals to the D.C. team who are all top performers in their fields and can provide a broad range of services to our present and prospective clients,” he said.

“We’re not only assisting our customers with financing, but we also offer consulting and strategic advisory services,” said Anne Brensley, an attorney by trade who heads up the firm’s advisory business:

Brensley has been successfully facilitating financial deals, directly providing equity, and consulting on complex real estate matters for the past ten years.

“We’ve been able to assist in changing government attitudes towards projects, walking developers through rezoning issues, and helping owners ‘right-size’ their capital structure. Ascend has seen an unaddressed need for bridge funding with EB-5 projects, and we’ve helped our clients utilize an array of specialized funding vehicles to get their projects completed,” she said.

Ascend Capital Partners provides financing options as well as advisors in several different areas of the commercial real estate financial sector.

For instance, Fedewa and Jud Villa worked together in Florida funding commercial loans. Villa is also an expert in single family home, “fix and flip, and fix and hold” deals. “We have so many ways to assist our borrower/clients, but helping them make smart choices and matching them up with financing,” said Villa.

Rob Merkle and Vince Lane round out the Ascend commercial real estate team. Lane has been a real estate developer, and also has expertise in high tech and international business. He splits time between Austin and San Francisco. Merkle heads up the New York City office, where he has worked for years and overseen billions of dollars in deals in and around Manhattan.

In college, Merkle played football for The University of Notre Dame. He said: “I know about teams, and this is a great one. We cover some of the most dynamic markets in the country, and our people are aggressive and seasoned professionals.”

“In markets like San Francisco and Austin, there’s a huge need for the type of innovative and alternative financing that Ascend offers. Banks are not lending, but we’re picking up the slack,” said Lane.

“We have sources which include debt funds, private equity, hedge funds, and our own managed funds,” said Fedewa. “With our decades of expertise, we will assist in finding the most efficient capital stack for your project.”

Richman Signature Properties and Laurel & Wolf Unveil 2017 Trends for Apartment Interior Design

richman-signature-properties-logo

Designed Model Homes at Aurora in Tampa and Parc at White Rock in Dallas Offer Glimpse Into Trends, Including Individualism, Simplicity, Refuge From Tech.

laurel-and-wolf-logo

Greenwich, CT, USA — Today’s millennials and Gen Xers are forgoing home ownership and flocking toward apartment rentals in record numbers. And while they’re doing so by choice to maintain their flexible lifestyles in live-work-play environments, they are not willing to sacrifice on style. Historically, apartment communities have shied away from allowing residents to individualize their apartments through painting and other customizations, but Richman Signature Properties (http://www.richmansignature.com), a leader in luxury rental communities with properties throughout the U.S., is doing just the opposite. In fact, the company has teamed up with leading online interior design service Laurel & Wolf (http://www.laurelandwolf.com) to create chic interior design options curated specifically for this demographic.

“We’ve worked with Laurel & Wolf designers to uncover the top trends for apartments that feel like forever homes. It’s all part of our mission to reimagine what rental living looks like for our residents. A major differentiator of our communities is the design flexibility each property offers, not typically found in other apartment communities that have stringent rules for decorating,” said Kristen Gucwa, vice president of marketing for Richman Signature Properties. “Our partnership with Laurel & Wolf is a testament to our commitment to give our residents the opportunity to express individuality through on trend, in demand home design.”

Beyond the design insights, Richman Signature Properties is making the stylish d├ęcor options a reality for its residents. Upon moving into one of its luxury communities, residents at all Richman Signature Properties may choose to Live Prettier with a complimentary Laurel & Wolf Signature Design package (http://www.laurelandwolf.com/pricing), customized to complement residents’ individual tastes, lifestyle and budget. The service connects residents to work one-on-one with a designer entirely online.

To demonstrate the trends and showcase to future residents the stylish possibilities for their new home, Laurel & Wolf has created an entirely furnished look for Richman Signature Properties’ newly completed model homes at Aurora in Downtown Tampa and Parc at White Rock in Dallas.

Following are the top apartment interior design trends for 2017 from Richman Signature Properties and Laurel & Wolf, which can be implemented into any apartment home that needs a refresh.

A Shift in Bedroom Space
With an increase in the use of technology and the bustle of everyday life, renters are feeling the need to make bedrooms a sanctuary for rest and relaxation. Millennials and Gen Xers are moving their home offices and TVs out of the bedroom, and shifting to calming colors and monochromatic palettes. Additionally, articulating sconces are taking the place of traditional table lamps in the bedroom. They offer a more direct source of light, creating more peace in the space, and can be ideal for young professionals and couples with differing bed times.

Maximizing Style with Curated Colors
Millennial and Gen X renters are taking a page out of the history books and looking toward more classical color palettes for their homes. This year, we’ll see a rise in popularity of pairing rich pigmented tones in dusty blues and grays with hunter green and wheat accents. Warm, calming colors will be complemented by natural textures to further tie to the need for home sanctuary.

Simplicity and Originality is a Must
When it comes to millennial renters, the big trend is ‘less is more.’ There’s a desire to streamline spaces – to be uncluttered and less fussy than traditional design. For the pieces they do choose, millennials are open to spending a little more money if it makes their room stand out, especially from their friends.

In addition to simplicity, there is a renewed interest in original furniture pieces and mixing design styles to create a one-of-a-kind, simple yet eclectic look. Driven by the desire to be unique, we can expect millennials to purchase more antiques, vintage and one-off pieces over the mass-produced furniture makers.

Going Green (In Moderation)
Recently, Pantone released its 2017 color of the year: Greenery. Greenery is bright, lush and ideal for residents who want to bring that outdoor feel into their homes. While renters may feel more comfortable sticking with neutrals for wall colors, we’ll see a rise in modern takes on plants, e.g., lush terrariums to add a splash of greenery in the home, similar to the living room model found in Richman Signature Properties’ Parc at White Rock in Dallas.

“Today, millennials desire more than just a space to call home, they want to live in a place that showcases their unique tastes and draws upon their life experiences,” said Leura Fine, CEO and founder of Laurel & Wolf. “So, through our partnership with Richman Signature Properties, we are proud to be able to provide residents the opportunity to create a space that truly reflects their wants and needs – a place that celebrates their individual style.”

In addition to the online interior designers, Richman Signature Properties’ collaboration with Laurel & Wolf provides residents with expert insights on interior design trends and a collection of on-trend paint colors selected exclusively for Richman Signature Properties’ to help residents create one-of-a-kind living spaces.

Parc at White Rock in Dallas and Aurora in Tampa are part of the fast-growing upscale collection of Richman Signature Properties including The Sedona, Grady Square, and The Epic at Gateway Centre in Florida’s Greater Tampa Bay area, and Azura, Palm Ranch and Portico in South Florida.
