space: How Can An Employee Scattergram Help Your Office Search? - 05/12/10 06:09 AM

Maybe you've heard of the term Employee Scattergram or maybe you haven't, but in your search for new office space knowing where your employees live in relation to your office location may be one of the most important things you know.  I've heard it said that "the drive to work is the number one reason why many people quit their jobs!"  Having a quick commute to work can be just as an important fringe benefit as health benefits or retirement savings.
The way an Employee Scattergram works is fairly simple:

space: Make Sure Your Michigan Mover Has A License! - 09/30/09 05:34 PM
If you're planning to hire a moving company to move you within the state of Michigan, make sure the company you choose has a license from the Michigan Public Service Commission (MPSC). Recent changes in state law now require all intrastate household goods movers to have a license or "operating authority" from the MPSC. An intrastate mover is defined as one that operates only within the state. You can tell if an operator is licensed by looking for the required MPSC numbers and current year decal on the side of the truck's cab.
The new state law has a number of … (2 comments)

space: What is a Lease Restructure? - 10/17/08 06:35 AM
The idea of a lease restructure is fairly simple:
Assume that you have 4 years remaining on your original 10-year term lease. Your original lease was most likely structured with an annual increase based on yesterday's lease rates. If you were to sign a lease today in most cases it would be lower than what you are currently paying. We would build leverage by placing your existing space on the market for sublease, examining less expensive options and approaching your landlord to restructure your lease. During this lengthy negotiating process with your landlord we would also approach several outside landlords to … (0 comments)

It's a simple question.
Is now the time to invest in Real Estate?
Top athletes know when its time to renegotiate their contracts.  Stock brokers know the best time to buy quality stocks.  Oil companies know the best time to tighten the surplus and raise prices.  Gold refineries know the best time to buy used gold.  and the best poker player knows when to push all in... Think about it.  Now is the time to invest in Real Estate.  Is it really going to get worse or are there bountiful opportunities right in front of your very eyes?

space: "GREEN" Buildings and Sustainability - What Is It All About and What Does It Mean To Me? - 06/11/08 04:41 AM

Architects draw plans and contractors build buildings, but neither really controls what goes on there. The power of the bank account puts the owner in control of every project. With constantly increasing energy costs along with many other factors more owners are investigating green buildings for themselves.  Green is everywhere today, and is becoming an integral aspect of business strategy, from corporate philosophy to marketing tactics.
A recent national survey of the commercial real estate sector revealed that nearly two-thirds of respondents allocated funds to green initiatives, while the majority said their sustainability investment would increase in 2008. So let's … (0 comments)

By Al Uszynski

The public's impression of sales professionals is enlightening, and disheartening. During my time as a professional salesperson, I've heard some interesting opinions from a variety of people.
One I'll never forget happened during a visit to Cornell University where I was conducting job interviews for sales positions. I remember the candidate who told me, "To be good in sales you have to be good at bull-s----ting your customers." I was surprised to hear such a dumb statement from a job seeker, never mind an Ivy Leaguer.
