Queens, New York (PRWEB) January 04, 2012
The Executive Office Center at Fresh Meadows, once home to First Choice Real Estate, Inc., the top residential real estate company in Queens for over a decade, is ready to become the real estate center of Queens once again, according to Executive Director, Jack Blumner
The Executive Office Center at Fresh Meadows is the premiere Queens executive suite center, offering serviced office space and Queens virtual office services. Only a year old – having celebrated its first birthday in October – it has already attracted nearly 100 tenants and virtual tenants, including 28 law firms. Now, it has opened up the building to real estate brokers, as well.
“Queens realtors have been struggling to pay the rent since the downturn in the real estate market began six years ago,” said Mr. Blumner. They’ve been hurt by the recession more than anyone else. Now they have an option that they didn’t have before, and it’s one that fits there needs perfectly.”
“When you rent an office at the Executive Office Center at Fresh Meadows, your expenses are a fraction of what they would be in a traditional office environment,” said Mr. Blumner, “and you are ready for business from the moment you turn the key and open the door to your new office. There’s no need to do anything but roll up your sleeves and get to work That's because everything is already in place for you.”
“Each tenant has an individual office, but all share a common receptionist and lobby/waiting area, conference room and cafeteria. One monthly fee covers all expenses, including lobby reception, telephone answering, internet, utilities and cleaning. And If you don’t need an office on a full-time basis – and most realtors don’t – you can become a virtual tenant at the office center for as little as $39/month,” said Mr. Blumner.
Steven and Jack Blumner are the former broker/owners of First Choice Real Estate, which occupied the office building from 1990, the year that it was built, until 2004, when it was sold to NRT, Inc. NRT, the largest real estate company in the United States, added the firm to its Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage group, but company gave up the Queens location after five years of battling a difficult real estate market. The Blumners converted the 10,000 square foot office building into an executive suite center after Coldwell Banker moved out.
“The Queens office building was the central hub for real estate sales in the borough for over two decades,” said Mr. Blumner. "It would not surprise me at all to see it become a major real estate center once again."
“It should be the natural choice for any real estate company seeking market penetration in Queens. Thery would have virtually no set up costs, and could be up and running in a matter of days, said Mr. Blumner. “Any broker, for that matter, would be wise to capitalize on the long history of the building as a real estate center.”
“Our virtual office services are also ideal for independent real estate brokers who work out of their homes. They could use the office and meeting rooms on as need basis, and have the most professional business address in the borough. It is also the perfect place for realtors who would like to go into business for themselves and earn 100% of their commissions,” said Mr. Blumner.
“Several independent brokers have already signed on at the Executive Office Center, and we have been speaking with some prominent players, as well,” said Mr. Blumner. “We presently have 28 law firms affiliated with the Executive Office Center. I would be willing to wager that there will be at least as many real estate agents operating out of this office within a year’s time.”
