Guiding Principles: “Be daring, be different, be impractical, be anything that will assert integrity of purpose and imaginative vision against the play-it-safers’, the creatures of the common place, the slaves of the ordinary.” -Cecil Beaton
Why AvenueWest?: “We chose AvenueWest because they provided the business sense, business structure, and name recognition we needed to create a stable footing for our company.”
When they aren’t working: “We enjoy spending time with our two boys (9 and 3), working out, looking at real estate, and spending time with friends and family on game days.”
Denver, CO & Atlanta, GA – November 21st, 2013 – AvenueWest Global Franchise today announces the opening of its latest franchise location, AvenueWest Atlanta located at 5905 Atlanta Hwy. Suite 101. AvenueWest Atlanta connects private landlords with business travelers, or relocated families in need of full service 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.
AvenueWest Global Franchise has been tapping into the emerging trend of business executives who are finding both financial freedom and life balance through franchise ownership. Jennifer Haigler, the owner of the AvenueWest Atlanta office, along with her husband Rory, came to the realization she needed the flexibility, provided by AvenueWest, when one day she realized she didn’t even know what her young son was wearing to school that day. Jennifer, a veteran of the corporate relocation industry and a licensed Certified Relocation Professional (CRP) says: “It was a profound moment in time for me as I decided I needed to do something to bring some work/life balance back to my existence.”
AvenueWest’s approach to Managed Corporate Housing is an exciting opportunity that taps into both Jennifer’s previous relocation and corporate housing experience and Rory’s real estate experience as they look to build a long term sustainable business. The Haigler’s say Atlanta is the perfect place to set up a corporate housing shop.
Jennifer continues: “Many relocated families and professionals as well as business executives would prefer to stay in our AvenueWest properties since they provide all the amenities of home. Our properties are in real residential settings instead of the more transient environments found when staying in hotels. The cost to stay in an AvenueWest property is also typically less expensive per night than staying in a hotel.”
The Haigler’s officially opened the AvenueWest Atlanta office on November 21, 2013. Rory Haigler adds: Atlanta’s real estate market is currently booming, but there is a shortage of homes available for sale in the metro area.
“There seems to be demand from every corner: As the economy continues to strengthen, more and more people are relocating to Georgia and Atlanta in particular. As of August, Atlanta’s employment grew by 57,100 (a 2.4% increase)! Atlanta’s diverse economy generates a constant flow of people moving into the area to find a new home, and short term housing presents the best solution during that time of transition for relocating families, individuals and executives alike, especially since the homes on the market are being snagged so quickly,” stated Rory.
“Individual homeowners and investors alike who want to offer their furnished homes or condos as corporate rental properties will have the opportunity to make additional revenue in today’s economy. By partnering with us and using our proven Managed Corporate Housing system, we can both benefit from the growing need for temporary housing solutions in the area. It’s exciting to be able to help owners develop their investment properties and turn them into major profit centers,” added Jennifer.
Kimberly Smith, the CEO of AvenueWest Global Franchise, says that opening an office in Atlanta is the latest step in an aggressive expansion plan that the company initiated in July of this year. To have an office in Atlanta has been on Kimberly’s 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.
“AvenueWest’s privately owned properties offer more choices to today’s executives or relocated individuals who want a fully furnished property with all the comforts of home, high-end furnishings, and many times, amazing amenities over standard corporate housing rentals or extended stays,” says Smith. “With the Haigler’s knowledge of the area and the local real estate, relocation, and corporate housing industries, AvenueWest Atlanta is uniquely positioned to offer the kind of rental properties required by discerning executives and individuals and families who are being relocated to the area. It also offers the opportunity for private landlords to earn greatly increased rental income on their properties.”
