8 Local Experts Share Why They Picked an Office Suite Style Environment to Grow Their Business

An executive suite setting is an all-inclusive office space that provides everything your business needs without any of the hassles, from fully furnished spaces to coffee and meeting rooms.

Many people have started out in their living rooms or at the kitchen table, but with time, their businesses grew and they needed a proper setup while others have more space than their business can accommodate. That’s when an executive office suite environment is perfect for the business. So whether you are looking to have a dedicated office or looking to reduce the costs of your office operations, an all-exclusive office environment would be a perfect fit. They allow the clients to share the overhead costs, which are associated with the upkeep of the offices with the other occupants who use the same office space.

Here are 8 small business experts weighing in on why they chose to use an executive office suite environment for their business instead of a traditional commercial space:

Denise Zirker (Broker) rare Properties

We chose an office suite environment because we were a small business at the time. The phone support and professional environment were important for setting the image that we wished to convey to our clients.”

rare Properties is a full-service boutique Real Estate Brokerage specializing in the marketing of residential properties in the Triangle Area. For more information please visit rareproperties.biz or call 919-576-0345.

Jim Quinn (Executive Vice President) LSQ Funding

“I chose an office suite environment because of the location. It’s near my house and provides everything I need such as amazing and talented office staff.”

LSQ Funding provides specialized accounts receivable financing to growing companies. They offer competitive rates, customized financing arrangements and personal service to help improve your profitability and financial security. For more information please visit lsq.com.

Jay Alderson (Property and Casualty Specialist) MetLife Auto and Home

“The reason why I decided to open my Insurance Agency in an office suite style environment was because of the location and the cost.  Having a suite saved me a ton of money out of pocket by having all of your services included at a low monthly cost and I did not have the upfront expense of purchasing office furniture and equipment or hiring staff.  Having a Suite has allowed me to spend more money on marketing, which has allowed me to grow my Insurance Agency by leaps and bounds!”

MetLife, Inc. is a leading global provider of insurance, annuities and employee benefit programs. For more information please visit jalderson.metlife.com or call 919-714-7282.

C.J. Meese, Business Development Associates Inc.

“The value of an executive office suite environment is you only need to invest in the amount of space and the number of services you need to grow your business.  Additionally, first rate executive suites offer attractive conference rooms so you can look truly professional when meeting with clients at your office.”

BDA works with owners, senior executives and Board members of companies who have made a deep and lasting commitment to enhance their company’s performance (and therefore, shareholder value), and who understand the value of engaging an experienced and objective outside advisor who can facilitate the achievement of their desired objectives.

So if your company is ready to prepare a strategic business plan, obtain capital to enable growth, transfer ownership via a partial or complete sale of the business, make an acquisition, undertake a valuation — or if you need interim C level management — we would like to talk with you about how BDA can assist you with those issues.

For more information please visit bdainc.biz or call 919.714.7289

David Crump, Employee Benefits Consulting Co.

“We chose an office suite environment initially for location when it first opened.  We have stayed because of the professional atmosphere and the level of competency and customer service that has been afforded to us.  We have found that the staff of the office suite has gone out of its way more than a few times to accommodate our needs as they have come up.  It was important to our business to have a staff that was professional, courteous and helpful.  An office suite environment is a great place do business.”

Employee Benefits Consulting Company provides superior consulting services from Group Benefits Plans for businesses, Solutions for small businesses to Individual Services such as Health, Life and Dental Insurance. For more information please visit ebcc.us or call 919-714-7424

Lauren Massie, Simply Taxes

“I chose an office suite style environment to give a big office feel for my small business.

The tax specialists of Simply Taxes are available year-round and are dedicated to simplifying the tax preparation process for individuals and small business owners. For more information, please visit simplytaxesllc.com or call 919-792-8511.

Philip Massey (President) Massey Consulting

“We are a professional services consulting organization, so most of our time interacting with clients is either at their site or done via GoToMeeting or something similar.  An office suite environment enables us to have a business address and location, but not have the overhead of a traditional commercial space.”

Accounting software is the specialty of Massey Consulting. We are certified, recognized experts in each of the software solutions we offer. For more information, please visit masseyconsulting.net.

Sharon Adair (Director of Member Services) Alliance for Toll Interoperability

“The driving point for the Alliance for Toll Interoperability (ATI) as a small non-profit was the need for a professional environment in which to have meetings. The flexibility of hours, room sizes and types along the adjusted cost was ideal since we only require use of the space a few times in a year. Prior to discovering the option of an office suite, we were challenged by needing a physical address, meeting space and limited financial resources. An office suite is also beneficial as we do not have to worry over the security & maintenance of an unused or primarily vacant site. All of the small companies that we have brought to the office space in the past 2 years have gone home looking for a similar solution in their area. With the capabilities of modern technology and the increase of employees working from home or from the road, many small businesses are looking for either a physical office or virtual office option as a better fit for office needs & expenses.”

Alliance for Toll Interoperability promotes and implements interstate interoperability for the benefit of customers and member agencies. For more information, please visit tollinterop.org or call 919-441-6542.

A Virtual Office Can Add A Professional Image for Your Business!

During the initial stages of building your business, I am sure you have heard about the importance of setting up a commercial office location. A physical location that is zoned for business speaks volumes for your company and it’s operations.

If you decide to use your home address for your company, keep in mind some lenders may not extend credit to a “home-based” business. But if you are adamant about having a commercial address but cannot afford renting out traditional office space and hiring someone to manage your calls, mail, files etc., then having a Virtual Office is what you need.

Here at Executive Office Suites, we offer various Virtual Office packages to help support you and your business and provide the professional image that you are searching for. Not only do you get a permanent mailing address and business phone number, but you get 24 hour access to our services which includes 3 meeting rooms and flex office space and a virtual admin (who you do not have to pay) who will answer your calls and help with your mail.

Give your business the professional image you require to get ahead of the competition. Call today for more information or stop by to tour our facilities!

Virtual Offices: Helping Small Business Owners Achieve Work-Life Balance Virtual Office Work.Balance.Life

Spending too much time on meager tasks when you should be growing your business? Want to spend more time with the family? Running a business is tough. But happily, today’s small businesses have a whole host of time-saving tools at their disposal, and a virtual office is one of them.

“Too much work, not enough play” – sound familiar? We all strive for an effective work-life balance. Small business owners are particularly under pressure, as they are the driving force behind the business and feel they have to be switched on to “work mode” every waking minute. This can lead to unhappiness at work and stress, which can spill over into family and home life.

Happily, small business owners have an arsenal of tools available to help make their working lives that little bit easier. And a virtual office is one of them. How, do you ask? The answer is not limited to one solution, but rather, several solutions that work together to help streamline business processes, reduce workload, and keep your clients feeling like they are number 1.

Let’s start with streamlining. With a virtual office, you could opt for a professional live answering service through our team of trained, experienced receptionists. When you’re busy growing your business – whether that’s strategizing, meeting clients or marketing your brand – constant calls from your cell phone can be an unwelcome distraction. Particularly when it’s an unwanted sales call or a wrong number. At Executive Office Suites, our professional receptionists can take that distraction away from you by answering, screening and handling calls to your requirements. Just think how much time this could save!

There’s another benefit to our live receptionist service, and it’s all about image. Having calls answered by a professional receptionist can go a long way towards improving your business image. No more important missed calls, or feeling like you’re on the spot when a client calls and you can’t remember their name. Leave it to our receptionists to make sure your clients feel like they are always number 1.

Of course, signing up to a swanky business address is another way to boost your business image. You might spend most of your time working from home or on the road, but as far as your clients are concerned, that skyscraper on Avenue of the Americas is your business home. And it’s not just an address on your business card either. With Executive Office Suites, you can benefit from on-demand meeting rooms and day offices too – perfect for meeting (and impressing!) clients, and having somewhere to land when you’re in town.

Executive Office Suites at Lafayette Village is all about helping you to streamline your tasks, boost productivity and grow your business. After all, you deserve it. And with less time spent fire-fighting and more time spent focusing on the things that matter – like family – you’ll soon be well on the road to work-life-balance success!

With so much of our time being spent online, it is more important than ever to be vigilant about our privacy protection efforts.

Basic Strategies

  • Make sure sites are safe before sharing any of your personal or business information.

  • Use a privacy-oriented e-mail service
  • Use a virtual private network to hide your IP address
  • Use peer block to block known risks from ever seeing your computer
