Maybe it really is the best of times and the worst of times
Denver, CO (PRWEB) July 23, 2009
For Lynda Thompson, the fast-paced daily routine at her expanding concierge service seems conspicuously at odds with gloomy media stories about economic recession.
In fact, since its formal launch in January her Denver agency, Let's Concierge it!, LLC has quadrupled its staff and doubled its office space just to keep pace with a growing client roster -- compelling reasons for Thompson to wonder if truer barometers of the overall economic situation aren't being overlooked.
A former real estate agent whose own exit from the local housing market now seems prescient, Thompson has been able to use a client base built up over years in real estate to launch what has become an economic anomaly. "Maybe it really is the best of times and the worst of times," muses Thompson. "While there's hardly a day I'm not reminded of old friends in the real estate industry trapped by a housing downturn -- I'm continually awed by the strong demand for follow-on services from all those new home owners that the housing bubble created."
Thompson's concierge service provides expert assistance in arranging everything from grocery purchases to landscaping help, as well as things like attending service calls and running errands. As many clients are new to the Denver area, the extensive contacts of a former real estate professional are of value -- as is the time freed up in their own busy schedules.
The affluence of many clients in her portfolio, furthermore, might suggest that more economic activity is going on among business movers and shakers than is reflected in official economic statistics. "For me, the wind from the deflating housing bubble is definitely filling new sails. By moving to accommodate new homeowners' evolving needs, I've been able to quickly build some gratifying business momentum," says Thompson. The current economic doldrums, in other words, have definitely not becalmed all Denver boats.
