It is with great pleasure that I announce that on September 1 Group 1 Real Estate will be moving to the Spectrum Skyline at 200 Spectrum Center Drive. The building of course is amazingly beautiful and access to the restaurants and shops at Irvine Spectrum Center is fabulous. However the more important benefit to my growing little Group is access to a community. My office is located at WeWork on the third floor.
I first became intrigued with WeWork and coworking when I was living in Seattle. I learned about coworking from a friend who had a small business in downtown Seattle. She worked on the 6th floor of an office building in a shared working environment. She had access to a phone, desk, coffee, water, wifi, and power. Just as important, she was part of a community of entrepreneurs. Central to coworking is the opportunity for independent contractors, free lancers, small professional practitioners and others to be part of a work community.
WeWork is a global leader in coworking environments. Renting an office or hot desk at WeWork gives an entrepreneur or small business access to a local business community and global online community. I am sure there are a hosts of studies that show the benefits of working as part of a team while at work.
Move to WeWork and Spectrum Skyline
The decision to move was an easy decision. I was looking for an affordable way to scale my business and position it for growth. I can add agents and other brokers and they can easily integrate at my location. Naturally curb appeal was important and in South Orange, there is not a more attractive building. It is easy to get to and parking is ample. Best of all my business is within 15 minutes to Laguna Woods, Aliso Viejo, Mission Viejo, Lake Forest, Irvine, and Santa Ana.
Just as important for me, I am about to be exposed to lots of new people with great energy and new fresh ideas. There are workshops, groups I can join, and networking opportunities. Every weekday when I go to work, Coffee will be waiting for me when I walk in the door and I can have a cold beer at the end of the day, complements of WeWork.
