Welcome AvenueWest Northern Colorado!

AvenueWest Northern Colorado, a franchise of Denver-based AvenueWest Global Franchise, opened its doors on November 1, 2013 and is owned and managed by Deb Salek.

AvenueWest Northern Colorado connects private landlords with business travelers in need of full service corporate housing.

AvenueWest Global Franchise has been tapping into the emerging trend of departing business executives who are finding both financial freedom and life balance through franchise ownership. Deb Salek was a former senior level analyst with Qwest Communications and now owns her own AvenueWest franchise. Deb’s exit from corporate America is a developing national trend. Her first step was to decide to leave her office job. She built a successful residential real estate business as a broker associate with RE/MAX, which provided the flexibility she needed with her two young children. Then Deb and her husband, Todd, chose to relocate to Fort Collins, CO, a city they found as the best compliment to their quality of life vision. When looking to target the relocation market more specifically, Deb found AvenueWest Managed Corporate Housing to be an exciting opportunity which taps into both her corporate and real estate experience as she looks to build a long term sustainable business.

“Fort Collins offers this amazing quality of life and energy that is fueling growth and causing a positive relocation trend for the city. With a diverse blend of corporations, Colorado State University, state of the art hospitals, government entities and a burgeoning craft beer industry, Fort Collins economy continues to strengthen. Fort Collins is also in the midst of a hot housing market with property inventory at a premium so it may take people several months to find a new home, and short-term housing presents the best solution during that transition.”

Salek continues: “The people that stay in our AvenueWest properties prefer to have the amenities of home and appreciate that it is a less transient environment than what they would find in a hotel. The cost to stay in an AvenueWest property is also typically less expensive per night than staying in a hotel. There seems to be a demand from every corner: corporations, visiting professors, medical personnel, the oil and gas industry, tourists, and so forth. I see the real opportunity as being with the individual homeowners who want to offer their furnished homes as corporate rental properties. They will have the ability to work with us to capitalize on and profit from the growing need for temporary housing solutions in the area. It’s exciting to be able to help owners develop their investment properties.”

"I see the real opportunity as being with the individual homeowners who want to offer their furnished homes as corporate rental properties." Like at the Mason Street Flats in Old Town, for example.

Kimberly Smith, the CEO of AvenueWest Global Franchise, says that opening an office in Fort Collins has been on her wish list since the day she started her managed corporate housing business in the LODO area of Denver some 14 years ago and a priority since launching AvenueWest Global Franchise in 2010. “An executive who wants a furnished property with all the creature comforts of home and high-end furnishings will have a strong preference for AvenueWest’s corporate rental properties over a transient hotel setting or other generic apartment rentals. With Deb’s knowledge of the area and industry, AvenueWest Northern Colorado now offers the kinds of rental properties required by discerning executives. It also offers the opportunity for private landlords to earn greatly increased rental income on their properties.”

To offer your property for rent through AvenueWest Northern Colorado, or to find a property during your temporary stay in the area, contact Deb Salek at 970-797-3099 or via email at: DSalek@AvenueWest.com. AvenueWest Northern Colorado connects private landlords with those in need of corporate housing. Corporate housing is defined as fully furnished rental apartments, homes or condominiums offered for rent on a short-term basis, usually for one month or more.

Welcome AvenueWest Phoenix!

Phoenix, AZ, Corporate Housing, Short Term Housing, Relocation, Real Estate, Investment Owners

Meghan Hartman, the owner of the AvenueWest Phoenix.

AvenueWest Phoenix, a franchise of Denver-based AvenueWest Global Franchise, opened its doors on October 1, 2013 and is owned and managed by Meghan Hartman,

a long-time real estate and franchise executive. AvenueWest Phoenix fosters the connection between a private landlord of a rental property offered as a short-term, furnished rental with those in need of executive housing such as a traveling business executive, relocated family, traveling professor, athlete or actor and even someone in need of temporary housing during a medical treatment.

Meghan Hartman, the owner of the AvenueWest Phoenix office, says Phoenix is the perfect place to set up a corporate housing shop.

“As the economy continues to strengthen, more and more people are relocating to the Phoenix area.  Phoenix has a very dynamic housing market, and property inventory is at a premium so it may take several months for people moving into the Phoenix market to find a new home, and short term housing presents the best solution during that transition.”

“As the economy continues to strengthen, more and more people are relocating to the Phoenix area. Phoenix has a very dynamic housing market, and property inventory is at a premium so it may take several months for people moving into the Phoenix market to find a new home, and short term housing presents the best solution during that transition.” – Meghan Hartman, Owner of AvenueWest Phoenix

Hartman continued: “Phoenix has always been a destination market and we have a large number of visitors every year.  Many people want to stay in a home with all of the amenities, and AvenueWest offers the perfect solution for those who want the comforts of home rather than a transient experience at a hotel that can potentially be more expensive.”

Hartman, whose past experiences include corporate positions with a number of real estate related franchisors and owning and operating her own real estate brokerage, will officially open the AvenueWest Phoenix office on October 1, 2013. Hartman adds: the interest in managed corporate housing from corporations, investors and real estate professionals alike is exceeding her expectations.

“With such interest brewing from corporations in the entire valley, the real opportunity lies with individual homeowners who want to offer their furnished homes as corporate rental properties. They have the opportunity to work with us to capitalize on and profit from the growing need for temporary housing solutions in the area,” she says.

Energy Saving Strategies to Implement This Summer in Your Home

With the official start date of summer right around the corner, it is a great time to take actions that will greatly reduce your electricity and gas bills before it gets too hot outside. Below are some tips that can be done around your house to reduce the amount of wattage being used.

These are only a few of the many ways you can help save energy and money in your homes this summer.

These are only a few of the many ways you can help save energy and money in your homes this summer.

  •  Make sure you have a programmable thermostat and set it for 72-75 degrees when you are home and higher or off when you are gone and use ceiling fans to help cool down your house.
  • Most utility companies have a special switch they can install that will limit the use of your A/C during peak hours of the day – contact your local service provider to find out if they offer anything like this. Xcel Energy does and offers $40 off your September or October bill if you enroll in the program – it’s free and they can even install it if you aren’t home in most cases.
  • Try to air dry your clothes in the sunshine this summer instead of running your dryer.

    Try to air dry your clothes in the sunshine this summer instead of running your dryer.

    Use only the warm or cold water settings whenever you do laundry and always rinse using cold water. Line dry your clothes whenever you can. When you need to use the dryer, run full loads and use the moisture-sensor setting and always clean the lint trap after each load.

  • Only run the dishwasher when it is full and instead of using the heat to dry them, air dry them instead.
  • Be sure your unused electronics and appliances are unplugged when not in use to conserve even more energy.

    Be sure your unused electronics and appliances are unplugged when not in use to conserve even more energy.

    Turn off and unplug all electronics, chargers, appliances, lights, etc. when not in use as some electronics/appliances use energy even when not in use.

  • Replace your air filters regularly – it is recommended this is done 3-4 times per year on average.
  • Be sure there are no leaks in your home around doors or windows letting hot air in and cool air out. Install caulk and weather stripping in all problem areas.
  • Replace all of your bulbs with energy saving ones.
  • Set your water heater temperature to the lowest temperature that will still provide sufficient hot water. Turn down the water heater whenever you go on vacation.
  • The fuller the fridge and freezer, the less energy is used to keep your food cool after the door has been opened.

    The fuller the fridge and freezer, the less energy is used to keep your food cool after the door has been opened.

    Be sure your fridge and freezer settings are not too cold. The fuller a fridge and freezer, the lower the energy costs.

  • Use a microwave whenever possible instead of the stove or oven as this uses up less energy.

There are many more things that can be done to help conserve our resources but we hope that you found the above tips helpful in making your home a more environmentally friendly place.

Happy saving everyone! 🙂
