This year marks the 20th anniversary of AvenueWest Corporate Housing, Inc., an award winning Colorado based business that has shown staying power by finding real estate and lodging solutions for customers in the economic ups and downs of the last 20 years. Founded on the principles of service, quality and choice, AvenueWest Global Franchise now has 15 local real estate franchise brokerages and just launched AvenueWest Canada to further its North American expansion.
In a world before AirBnB, AvenueWest saw the business potential for residential rentals, and today is the leader in the furnished residential monthly leasing and real estate business development. AvenueWest Corporate Housing started as a small real estate management company but quickly grew to the largest provider of corporate housing rentals in Colorado. Driven by the development of new ideas, meaningful innovation and vision for corporate growth, in 2010 AvenueWest Global Franchise, LLC was launched, enabling the national expansion of the AvenueWest Managed Corporate Housing business model. In 2018, AvenueWest Global Franchise, LLC,was named a Colorado Company to Watch, acknowledging the drive, excellence and influence of AvenueWestas a growing company in the state. Colorado Companies to Watch honors second stage companies that develop valuable products and services, create quality jobs, enrich communities, and create new industries throughout Colorado.
A recognized leader in the industry, AvenueWest was awarded the Corporate Housing Providers Association’s (CHPA) prestigious Provider Company of the Year Award, in 2019 AvenueWest was short-listed for the international Serviced Apartment Provider of the Year Award, in 2018 Think Realty Magazine awarded them the Industry Influencer award and they have been listed for 3 consecutive years on Inc Magazine’s Inc 5000 list featuring the country’s fastest growing businesses. AvenueWest’s CEO, Angela Healy, states that there are two secrets to the company’s success. First, we work hard to run AvenueWest as a team and develop a place where our employees enjoy coming to work, take pride in what they do and create lasting solutions for the tasks at hand. Secondly, Healy adds, that we believe in doing business the old-fashioned way, person-to-person with high standards for customer service. “We are able to offer relocated or traveling professionals more than just a temporary place to call home; we also help them get to know and love their new city like we do. So many of our customers come back to us time and time again because they know they can depend on us for reliable information about the city they are relocating to.”
Mrs Healy stated, “The AvenueWest Managed Corporate Housing business model works and there is proven national demand for the unique rental properties only offered through AvenueWest, but the real estate property management business model requires state specific real estate licenses to operate in each state. With a strong focus on quality and consistency, the AvenueWest business model began the evolution to a franchise model that developed locally owned and operated real estate brokerage offering managed corporate housing as a business lodging solution. Creating a franchise business varied significantly from the development of a real estate brokerage offering furnished monthly rentals. The new model had to develop training and systems that could expand and replicate what had been primarily done just through the development of key employees. Today there are 15 locally owned AvenueWest franchises located in 7 states. Current AvenueWest offices are located in Atlanta, GA – Boulder,CO – Colorado Springs, CO – Dallas, TX – Denver, CO – Denver South / DTC – Fort Collins, CO – Phoenix, AZ – Las Vegas, NV – Sacramento, CA – San Francisco, CA – Scottsdale, AZ – St Louis, MO – Tucson, AZ & Toronto, Ontario Canada. Today, AvenueWest still has the same mission statement it started with in 1999. “We can best serve our tenants and property owners by always improving the quality of everything we do as a team. We are committed to the process of becoming a continuously self-improving organization.”The AvenueWest franchise business model is different than the standard McDonalds as we work together on innovation. Part of the value of our franchise program is that innovation not only comes from the top down but also from the bottom up. We believe, and have demonstrated, the value of working with each franchise to best understand the innovations they make everyday and the Global Team works hard to disseminate these ideas as best practices for the benefit of all offices. Together we achieve more, together we grow more, and together we innovate more.
AvenueWest Managed Corporate Housing marks its 20th year as a premiere network of locally owned and operated real estate brokerages that offer fully furnished and comprehensively serviced residential properties for corporate rentals. Located in twelve cities, AvenueWest and its network of brokers offers different residential properties that include single family homes, condos, lofts, and townhomes.
One of the advantages of renting through AvenueWest is that brokers in the network are able to accommodate a wide range of pets. The reality is that a good number of business travelers that need to be gone for an extended period of time naturally want to bring their pets along. Finding comfortable accommodations that accept pets can prove challenging in some instances. AvenueWest strives to minimize complications associated with accommodating pets in a corporate rental situation.
Property Owners with Experience Renting to Pet Owners
At AvenueWest, we have identified property owners that are not only pet friendly but who have experience in renting to pet owners who bring their companion animals along on business trips. We appreciate that accommodating your pet is easier in a corporate rental when the broker and owner involved in the process already have specific experience with business travelers who bring their pets along.
These individuals understand what to expect. There are not any undue delays in educating a broker or owner in what to expect (and what not expect) when it comes to renting to a business traveler with an accompanying pet.
On an additional note, these brokers can typically provide a traveler with useful information about resources in a particular community that are relevant to pets. These can include everything from dog friendly establishments to emergency vet centers.
Pet Safety is a Priority at AvenueWest
A pet owner like yourself has a number of things to bear in mind when traveling with a companion animal. A key consideration is safety. When you are seeking corporate rental accommodations that will include your pet, you necessarily want to be fully satisfied that your pet will be safe in a particular location.
Pet safety includes everything from ensuring that there will no dangerous substances at the premises that your pet might access. In addition, you want to make certain that there is no risk that your pet somehow will be let out of the premises when you are away at a meeting or otherwise tending to business.
AvenueWest, its brokers, and owners are fully apprised of what needs to be done to ensure pet safety. Again, this stems from the fact that AvenueWest and associated brokers and property owners have backgrounds in renting to people who travel with their pets.
Not Just Dogs
The largest number of business travelers that bring a pet along typically do have dogs. With that said, dogs most definitely are not the only type of pet that need accommodation in corporate residential units. Cats are also brought along with business travelers who may be staying at a particular destination for a more extended period of time.
On our list of property owners in different cities include those that are willing to accept cats along with their humans. These are property owners that understand the unique circumstances of traveling with a cat and are not surprised by the needs of a renter with a feline.
Reasonable Deposits and Cleanup Fees
AvenueWest is associated with brokers and property owners who take a reasonable approach to fees beyond the base rental cost. For example, deposits and cleanup fees associated with a pet on the premises during a renter’s stay are kept reasonable. While it is true that something additional naturally is charged in the way of a pet deposit and cleanup fee, these are both kept at a highly reasonable level.
Maintaining reasonable pet deposits and cleanups fee is part of a larger commitment to be as accommodating as possible to business travelers accompanied by pets. In addition, and as has been noted, AvenueWest and its associated brokers and property owners understand that in the vast majority of situations, renters are accompanied by well trained and behaved pets. They realize that the typical business traveler is not going to have a pet in tow that has a propensity for damaging property.
In addition to having properties available to people traveling with their pets, AvenueWest also ensures that all laws and regulations relating to travelers with service animals are fully satisfied. The team at AvenueWest is highly experienced in finding suitable corporate rental options for business travelers who rely upon service animals.

For six years, Meghan Hartman’s career was in flux. The Global Financial Crisis ravaged the real estate industry, and Hartman, a former real estate agent, was looking to reinvent herself. Enter AvenueWest Managed Corporate Housing in 2013, and an opportunity to own a local office in Phoenix, AZ.
Ready to take charge of her career, Hartman jumped on this new business venture, with encouragement from her long-time confidant, Mark Vost, who today helps Hartman run the company’s day-to-day operations.
“As I unraveled the AvenueWest brand, I could see what a great fit it was for Meghan, and how her real estate skill-set would be an asset to her running a business like this,” says Vost.
Today, AvenueWest Corporate Housing in Phoenix is a thriving business that not only provides property management services to owners of furnished homes being offered for rent, but also provides high quality, short-term rental properties to those in need of temporary housing. Hartman says her ideal clients include traveling business executives, visiting medical professionals, and insurance companies in need of furnished homes for their displaced clients.
AvenueWest Phoenix Experiences Steady Growth
Hartman says AvenueWest Phoenix has experienced steady growth from the start, enabling her to manage seasonal swings.
“Phoenix’s rental season is busy in the winter and quiet in the summer, which can at times be overwhelming or underwhelming,” says Hartman. “We are committed to working hard year round to forge new relationships that strengthen our business so we can persevere through dramatic seasonal swings.”
Hartman says she created a medical professionals division to cater to the ongoing corporate housing needs of visiting medical professionals to Phoenix. “This has provided us with a steady stream of business no matter the season,” she says.
The backbone of AvenueWest Phoenix though, says Hartman, is the AvenueWest business model and corporate support team.
“We would not be able to do corporate housing without AvenueWest. The brand brings instant recognition and respect, not to mention a great deal of leads. We cannot give enough credit to AvenueWest’s global team and concept,” says Vost.
