Office Sweet Office. It's small, it's ugly, but it's mine.
After a summer of conducting business out of my mother-in-laws basement, Starbucks, and the public library, I finally have an office to call home office.
With all the positives it's easy for me to overlook the ugly color of the building (which I will repaint this spring) and the fact that the interior needs a little spritzing up.
The next big step is to get that secretary I've talked about for 2 or 3 years. I hired one and she quit before she started because she didn't like the interior colors of the office. This despite the fact I told her she could pick new colors and I'd paint!
I thought the colors were a little loud myself but I kind of like them and now that I've added some "stuff" like desks and bookcases I'm rather pleased. The pic to the right is the reception area that eventually will have a receptionists/secretaries desk.
I'm located on BROADWAY, how cool is that! In Minot Broadway is thee main Street with the heaviest traffic. I've already had more walk-ins in a month then I had in a year in my old location. I'm not knocking the old location, how great was that to be in a movie theater, across the street from a big park, and also on a main arterial of the City?
I'm far from finished with my office project but here are a few more pictures. The pic's include my desk as well as the desk for my personal assistant, my conference area for when I'm meeting with clients and viewing MLS listings, and the play area for kids to run wild while Mom and Dad look at listings with me. In the play area I need to and have removed most of the "junk" and to restock the office with a toy-box and kids furniture.
After spending the summer in my mother-in-laws basement because I lost my home, my office, and my rental property in the flood that destroyed 1/4th of our City this place really looks beautiful to me. Once again it's a joy to actually "GO" to work and to have a place for friends and clients come and visit.
Oddly enough despite the tragedy that struck our City and my family personally 2011 was the best year I've had in business. 2011 was full of blessings thanks to all the kind people who let us know they cared, many who never met us, but all eager to help out those in need because of the tragedy that struck our City.
