What does the future look like for your company?
“The construction industry is stronger than it has ever been. Home ownership has been and will always play a pivotal role in the ideal of achieving the American Dream. With the tightened lending parameters for builders and firm qualification standards for home buyers, I do believe that the current boom in the real estate market is built on a firmer foundation than that of markets past, which will lead to a steady and paced growth.”
Why did you choose to move into Novel Coworking?
“We chose our office space in Dallas for its central location and easy access to the design district, and its ability to grow with my company. We spend a great deal in business identification, and it’s a great help not to have to move from our location when we need to add staff or increase square footage.”
Have you done business with any of the other companies at Novel Coworking?
“Yes, my first week here I met a real estate broker whose office is next to mine. We were able to network and will be working together on future projects. She also was able to sit in on a board meeting with my advertisement firm and added valuable advice which we will be using in our upcoming commercials.”
What’s your favorite business travel destination?
What advice would you give someone who wants to start a business?
“Save, save, save, and deliberate, deliberate, deliberate before you spend.”
How did you navigate the transition from startup to growing company?
“Diversifying types of customers and sources of revenue we seek and adding credit lines before we need them.”
