The virtual office business model is such a practical and cost effective alternative to traditional office space, it is just a matter of time before it changes the Queens office rental marketplace forever.
Queens, NY (PRWEB) April 18, 2012
Virtual office services and serviced office space are quickly becoming a favored alternative to traditional office space in Queens, New York, according to Jack Blumner, Executive Director of the Executive Office Center at Fresh Meadows, New York.
The Executive Office Center at Fresh Meadows, which opened in October of 2011, is the first such office center to open in the borough of Queens, and has already attracted over a hundred tenants and virtual tenants, said Mr. Blumner.
"I am a personal believer in the virtual office business model for businesses," said Mr. Blumner. "It is such a practical and cost-effective alternative to traditional office space, it is just a matter of time before it changes the office rental marketplace forever."
"Queens is a latecomer to the virtual office concept," said Mr. Blumner. "It's somewhat surprising, considering the fact that the idea has been around for a while, and that it's such an important component of the marketplace for office space in Manhattan. I believe that the economy of Queens, which consists primarily of small businesses, makes the virtual office model particularly relevant."
Over 100 companies have joined the Queens Executive Office Center since it opened last year. "Nearly 40% of the firms are attorneys," said Mr. Blumner. "They are the ideal candidates for this type of office space. A lot of them don't really need full time office space, just a place to meet an occasional client. We have quite a few social workers and accountants, as well. But the rest of the companies span the spectrum from environmental consultants to real estate brokers."
This past week, the Executive Office Center was joined by the Law offices of Heath Goldstein & Caitlin Donahue, Expert Elevator Corp, Best Senior Home Care, the Eilav Law Firm and Lynx Electrical Corp.
"The beauty about affiliating with the Executive Office Center is the bang you get for your buck," said Mr. Blumner. "When you rent an office at the Executive Office Center, your monthly rent covers all of your expenses, including telephone and internet service, utilities, cleaning, lobby reception and telephone answering. If you don't need an office on a full time basis, but only for part time or occasional use, you can become a virtual tenant of the Executive Office Center for as little as $39/month."
"When I started out in business 35 years ago, I wish I could've opened an office in Queens for $39/ month, and look like the consumate professional," said Mr. Blumner.
