The Business And Law Of Real Estate

The United States real estate market has been both a storm and a gold rush. And there are few states in the country that are as intense as California right now.

With demand increases and inventor squeezes, prices have been increasing at a rate that could make any buyer, renter, investor, or landlord take action.

The Business Of Real Estate

Real estate is an exciting but grueling business.

Forbes reports that the average number of takes it takes for a home to close from listing to sale in Los Angeles is 36 days, which has decreased by 28% over the last year. The average number of days it takes for supply to rise up has been 1.9 months. The median sale price of Los Angeles homes has risen by 11% over the last year to $945,000, while inventory declined by 41% and new listings decreased by 15%.

Letters Hanging On String

The average number of days on the market for homes in San Diego is 8 days, nearly half that of last year. The median house sale price in San Diego is $826,000, an increase of 17% from last year, while the number of new listings has decreased by 9% year-over-year.  

The median house sale price in San Francisco is $1.3 million, an increase of 10% over the last year. The supply of homes in San Francisco has declined by 30% over the year and the average number of days on the market has decreased by more than half.

Real Estate Agents Find Ideal Opportunities And Negotiate Win-Wins

The purchase of a property is almost always a significant milestone, whether the property was purchased to live in or as an investment. The work of a real estate agent involves more than finding listings and showing properties to prospective buyers or investors. The purchase of a property is ultimately a matchmaking game that involves large sums of money. The duty of a real estate agent to the seller is to find a buyer who is willing to offer the best price under specific payment terms. The duty of a real estate agent to the buyer is to find a property that meets the client’s specifications and budget. The process can be extremely stressful for both the buyer and the seller, which is why the best representation is an agent that can take on the stress of the process, allowing their clients to enjoy a streamlined experience. 

Real Estate Lawyers Defend Your Best Interests

While working with an experienced real estate agent is crucial in real estate negotiations, working with a real estate attorney is just as important to finalizing the closing. The duty of a real estate attorney is to represent their client’s best interests in the closing of the property while preparing and reviewing the relevant and necessary documents.

It is important to seek representation through a real estate law firm in Orange County, where the average property is of high value. With so much money at stake, no real estate transaction should ever be finalized without legal guidance from a firm like Burris Law. If you are seeking the guidance of a real estate attorney, you can give them a call today.

Supercharge Your Life At Home

The World Health Organization defines burnout as “a syndrome conceptualized as resulting from chronic workplace stress that has not been successfully managed”, characterized by
“feelings of energy depletion or exhaustion

“​​It’s not a temporary affliction: It’s the millennial condition. It’s our base temperature. It’s our background music. It’s the way things are. It’s our lives.”

How Millennials Became The Burnout Generation, Anne Helen Petersen

Why do so many of us feel burnt out? Millennials report that with the popular rise of entrepreneurship and social media, the resulting “hustle culture” has created a distortion of reality in which work is a neverending priority in life. This has put many under the pressure to constantly work without taking breaks.

Millennials are keenly aware that time is the most precious and non-renewable resource that we all have. Everyone is in search of more time because there simply isn’t enough to check off everything on our daunting to-do lists. Everything in our day-to-day lives feels like a race against time.

If you already have good productivity and time management habits in place but still feel overwhelmed with a neverending to-do list, it might be time to consider supercharging your life with some time-saving hacks.

Biohacking Can Increase Productivity

The self-improvement aisle at the bookstore is filled with productivity books on how to accomplish more in less time. 

Popularized by renowned self-improvement experts Dave Asprey and Tim Ferris, biohacking is a popular trend among Silicon Valley folks and technology enthusiasts who have a curious and keen interest in self-experimentation.

One of the first biohacking techniques to gain mainstream traction was bulletproof coffee: a blended mixture of hot coffee, grass-fed organic ghee, and coconut MCT oil. Bulletproof coffee lovers claim that the blend provides sustained releases of energy from the caffeine from the coffee and the ketogenic effects of the fats. 

Synthetic Grass Saves Homeowners Time And Money

From self-driving cars to life on Mars, Elon Musk is a technology entrepreneur and business magnate known to work between 90 to 120 hours per week. Hustle culture glorifies ridiculously long working hours by pointing to entrepreneurs like Musk—if he can run multiple successful tech companies, who is to say that their workload is too much to handle?

If we can put a man on the moon, we can create a lawn that you never have to water or mow. Artificial turf is quite popular in Orange County, as homeowners want a luscious, uniform green lawn without spending the enormous amount of time, energy, and money required for lawn maintenance.

Read Stan U.‘s review of NoMow Turf on Yelp

The most time-consuming parts of maintaining a lawn are regular watering and mowing. If your schedule is already jam-packed, installing a synthetic lawn will allow you to cross one big thing off your to-do list so that you can use that time on relaxing and recovering from burnout. 

Homeowners of any age can benefit from synthetic grass, especially senior homeowners who may not have the physical mobility required for the physical labor of lawn care. 

NoMow Turf installs beautiful landscape artificial grass for putting greens, pets, sports fields, schools, front yards, backyards, and more. 

Plumb Job

A few months back, I started noticing something strange on one of the central columns of my home. The paint was beginning to crack and peel, but only on one corner facing the back of the house.

Initially thinking nothing of it, I determined it was a problem for tomorrow and that I’d just re-paint it later. Fast forward a week and the problem seemed to be getting significantly worse.

I took a putty knife to start removing the paint and instead managed to take a good chunk of the drywall off as if it were wet cardboard. That’s when I knew the problem was way, way worse than I thought.

I immediately called a local plumber to come and give it a look and anxiously awaited the few days until the appointed time. That time came…and then went, without even a phone call to explain why they never showed up.

The next plumber I called did manage to show up, and then promptly told me that there was a leak in the pipes but he can’t go any further without calling in an asbestos team due to the age of my house. He just so happened to know a guy who ran such a team…who would have charged me thousands for even showing up. Next!

The next plumber told me that there was nothing wrong – the drywall was probably just old! I couldn’t believe my ears. He was in and out of the house in ten minutes.

At this point I was in full-on panic mode. The plumbers I was calling either didn’t show up, didn’t know what they were doing, or were just straight up trying to scam me. I wasn’t sure how long I had before the water damage would turn to mold, and none of the options seemed appealing

That’s when a friend recommended California Plumbing from San Diego to me. She showed me their Yelp page and I was immediately intrigued by their rating and the pages on pages filled with reviews like these:

I’ve used California Plumbing in the past and I have to say there professionalism and work ethic is outstanding.  Nestor is an amazing plumber, by far the best.  He came to replace my toilets and in no time at all everything was done perfect. He replace 4 toilet, not an easy job but was completed in such professional manner.  He hauled the old toilets away too! I absolutely recommend California Plumbing for any plumbing issues, don’t for get to ask for Nestor! Thank you!

Yvonne L., Yelp Review

We had a bathroom faucet that needed to be replaced. The catch was that is was a pedestal sink and very tricky to replace.  Aaron at California Plumbing was quick to get back to me on Yelp and super responsive with messages. He sent Devan to my home the next day to do an estimate and actually Devan ended up doing the replacement.  Devan was extremely polite, professional and courteous as well as super knowledgeable.  Our faucet replacement was a pain but you wouldn’t know it by Devan’s personality and demeanor.  Great guy who even took the time to ask me how my day was going, all while in the midst of a complicated faucet replacement.  We have more faucets that need to be replaced so we will be having California Plumbing back to do those faucets as well and hopefully we get Devan again as he was wonderful!  Great service and very reasonable prices.  I highly recommend them!

Marianne G., Yelp Review

Not only have they been far more responsive and friendly during our calls, they successfully diagnosed my problem within twenty minutes of arriving to my home. As it turns out, some renovations I had recently got done had shifted one of the tubs in the bathroom right above the column, so water was leaking through the cracks in the grout and was slowly seeping to the lower floor.

Needless to say, I’ve been suitably impressed by California Plumbing and can give them a hearty recommendation. If you’re in need of some expert plumbing and just can’t seem to find a solid company to do the work, do yourself a favor and get the guys at California Plumbing to come out.

Getting Ready For The Cookout

As I type this I’m watching the birds are beginning to raid my woven flower planters for nesting material and that can only mean one thing – spring is right around the corner! That means sunny days here in southern California and planning out your newest home renovations.

For some of us, that time could not come soon enough. A wet early winter caused a lot of damage to the remaining grout and mortar in my aging hardscape out back, and I’ve been chomping at the bit to start a full renovation of the yard.

Since I bought my home several years ago, I’ve slowly been renovating it room by room, getting the inside updated from 70’s chic to a tasteful contemporary. All the while, I’ve been unhappily watching my yard go from bad to worse as old, poorly constructed hardscape crumbled and unsightly spruce trees killed any competitor I dared plant on their turf.

I decided long ago that we would need to tear everything down in the yard and start from scratch. It’s going to be a long, hard job, but I can already imagine living it up during summer with that gorgeous outdoor kitchen and garden.

The only question left is: who do I trust to implement my vision?! Well, it’s not much of a question, since I already know the answer: Torrey Pines Landscaping!

I’ve had my eye on them for a couple years now as I’ve been scanning local home and garden publications looking for inspirations. I saw one of the most beautiful yards I’d ever seen in one issue of San Diego Home&Garden and new that whatever company had built that was the official king of outdoor kitchen construction in San Diego. As it turned out, it was one of Torrey Pines’ latest endeavors.

If you don’t trust me, just take a look at some of their reviews:

Torry Pines Landscape Company Was highly recommended to us. If you want the best this is the company to use. When we met the owner Harry, we immediately felt very comfortable working with him and his team. He is extremely knowledgeable, many years of experience, passionate and has a great personality. We had a lot of fun working with him. His team is top-notch. Lei, his Architectural designer and John, his Supervisor were excellent. Always available, very professional, and dedicated.

It was impressive to watch how hard and efficient his crews worked. They were always accommodating and helpful. Harry and his team have high standards and want the customer to be happy. We at all times were welcome to share in choices and decisions. So ultimately, we now love our new courtyard, hardscape, landscape and driveway. We enjoyed the journey and are thrilled with the results. It filled our expectations and more.

We are so pleased with the “re-boot” of our landscape and extremely happy that we chose TP Landscape to plan & design and then execute on that plan. We also decided to stay with them for our weekly maintenance as well. We couldn’t be happier with the level of detailed planning, support and responsiveness we received throughout the 3 month process and the professionalism exhibited by the entire staff!!  Thanks Harry and team….it looks even better now three months later!

The Multipurpose American Home

For a long while, most would imagine those with powerful and glamorous careers as people who would wake up, get dressed in expensive clothes, order an expensive coffee, and drive to work in an expensive car before finally arriving at a luxurious high-rise office building located in the core of a fast-paced city.

But today, people are seeking different kinds of career luxuries. Instead of status symbols and paycheques, people want freedom and flexibility in their professional lives. Commuting is out and working from home is in. Money can certainly buy you fancy clothes, coffees, and cars, but it can’t always buy you the comfort of working in your pajamas or spending more time with your friends and family.

Woman in White Sweater Sitting on Bed

Over the last few years, cultural shifts and historic events have changed the desires and values of the average American office worker. Life is short, and people have decided that vanity and consumerism don’t contribute much to one’s ability to live a good life. 

The home is now the office, gym, bar, and mall. We can work at home, work out from home, party at home, and shop at home. People first began spending more time at home because we had to social distance, and now we spend most of our day at home because we want to. Why go outside and mingle when you can stay inside and isolate?

In many ways, we are returning to our roots. People are realizing that their homes have so much more functional utility than they had ever considered before. In addition to being convenient, doing everything from home can save a significant amount of time and money. Remote work has literally redefined what work-life balance means to us.

It’s easy to ignore your chores when you are constantly on the go. But now, even though our lives haven’t gotten any less busy, it’s much harder to ignore the dishes piling up in the sink or the sound of creaking floors when you spend most of your day actually inside your home rather than running out of it.

Environment shapes our daily routines and habits. Every human has a finite amount of willpower, which is why we need to create spaces that are conducive to our productivity and happiness. If you love to work and play at home, then it’s in your best interest to have a regular home maintenance plan. 

In many parts of the United States, pests are a recurring problem throughout the year. Hiring a termite exterminator is especially important in Glendora because of the density of colonies in the area. Moreover, termites are especially problematic for homeowners who work from home, because they do more than just give you creepy-crawly goosebumps—they can literally devour your floors and walls.

We recommend that homeowners protect their homes with annual pest inspections. Moreover, if you have an infestation, professional extermination is usually the safest and most effective treatment. Skipping inspections or attempting DIY treatments can allow the pests to continue damaging the home, which will only cost more money and cause more headaches in the long term.

Finding Good Help

When most people think of security guards, they tend to think of harmless oafs that you see patrolling the mall or driving around parking lots late at night in cars designed to look like police vehicles. In short, poorly paid shlubs with no real authority, unable to do much more than scare young teenagers and report to the police when actual crimes take place.

These types of guards are common in lower end retail outlets and strip malls and serve as a very basic barrier for theft in locations where most theft can result in, at most, a few hundred dollars worth of product being stolen at once. The story changes drastically in higher end locations and businesses that handle large amounts of cash as part of their everyday activities.

Guards that work in these locations are often armed and present a much more serious, dangerous figure. That air of authority and the pistol on their hip act as a much higher level of deterrence for the businesses they help protect.

Despite the increased danger they present, many armed security guards receive only basic training during their accreditation process. Businesses hire them specifically as a deterrent, but this lack of training can make a bad situation far worse if an emergency situation does arise.

Guards that haven’t been properly trained to handle a variety of emergencies are liable to make some very poor snap decisions that can lead to unnecessary injuries or deaths of not just customers, staff, and criminals, but themselves as well. A stray bullet can even hit unaware passersby on the street going about their day.

While horrific injuries and deaths are bad enough on their own, this is also a highly destructive lawsuit that can take down your business waiting to happen. Customers, employees and even the criminals themselves can successfully sue your business if it’s found that the security guards you hired acted improperly during the situation, not to mention the premises liability that is laid on your shoulders in the case of an injury.

If you work in industries that carry a high risk of being targeted by criminal activity, the risk for this kind of liability rises precipitously. Cannabis retailers, for example, deal almost exclusively in cash and have a product that sells very well on the street. This makes them an attractive target for thieves and robbers, which requires them to elevate their security systems and staff.

Though many dispensaries contract out their security personnel from professional staffing agencies, they can’t depend on these companies to train their guards for situations that are unique to the industry and the geography of their storefronts. Specialized professional security firms like Cannabis Compliant Security Solutions can provide industry-specific training for guards that can make the difference between everyone coming out of a dangerous situation safely or not.

CCSS security guard training involves drilling your security personnel in observing suspicious behavior on and off-premises and responding to a variety of situations that may arise during day-to-day operations. They also provide a comprehensive plan for your security system so your security personnel can operate in tandem with your regular retail staff to protect your product, your customers, and your business from both internal and external threats.

Owning a cannabis dispensary in the Bay area is a tough enough job as it is without the constant gnawing anxiety about whether your security guards are properly equipped and trained to handle the growing number of threats lurking outside your doors. Give yourself some peace of mind and contact CCSS today to ensure your staff has the systems and knowledge they need to protect themselves and your business.

On The Home Stretch

The face of logistics has changed rapidly over the last two decades with the meteoric rise of Amazon and other online retailers. Neighborhoods that previously only saw USPS trucks rumbling through their streets are now visited by Amazon vans and even private passenger cars stopping by multiple times a day to deliver one package or another.

This step of the logistical process, where smaller logistical vehicles take packages from a distribution center to your doorstep, is referred to as ‘last-mile delivery’. Despite the relatively short distances involved, the potential for these vehicles to be involved in an accident or experience criminal activity is arguably higher than those of long-haul trucking. You’re more likely to get in an accident within 5 miles of home than over long distances, after all.

With greater risk comes a greater need for insurance, so if you are planning on operating a last mile logistics service, you need to begin researching what types of policies you’ll need as soon as possible. Last mile insurance providers run the gamut of cheap to expensive, but good brokers like SWAN Insurance can assess your business’s needs and get you the right policies without the fuss.

SWAN Insurance has been providing solid, affordable insurance policies for logistics companies and contractors all over San Diego for years, and has a sizeable number of testimonials from their clients that attest to their professionalism and reliability:

I’ve been working with Chris and his team for over one year and two months. My first insurance for my business. He always makes time for my questions or concerns.

No matter how small or tedious and responses are always timely.

Chris and Anna are very professional, polite, hard-working people, and patient. They do their best to provide the information needed. Very well organized. For my business, this is more than fine. I don’t even want to change my insurance because I don’t think I will find someone better than Chris and Anna. Excellent customer service!

I would strongly recommend Swan Insurance because of its quality service, full transparency, ease of doing business, and most importantly reliable. Happy with SWAN INSURANCE!!!

– Matthew Murdock, Google Review

Chris has been absolutely fantastic to deal with at Swan Insurance.  I received notification 2-3 weeks before my Workers Comp was supposed to renew that my carrier no longer accepted my market.  My General Liability rep gave me Chris’s number and within a week he not only had quotes for me but the rate was lower than the previous carrier.  Chris and Swan Insurance was an absolute Godsend to me.  I would highly recommend them.

– Kaylene J., Yelp Review

At first I had some difficulty getting communication from some of the representatives. However, that quickly changed for some unknown reason. In a society where customer service is on the decline, it’s obvious that it is still important to the people of Swan Insurance. They clearly explain the policies but I don’t feel oversold or over insured. They are quick to respond to any inquiries my employees or I have and they patiently follow up on pending policy matters, even if we are slow to decide on which policy to go with. I’ve come to appreciate their service and support

– Kelan W., Yelp Review

Commercial delivery vehicles are far from safe out there on the mean streets, so it’s absolutely imperative that you get your vehicle and your cargo the coverage they need to be fully protected from the dangers drivers will face out on the road. If you’re in San Diego, that means giving SWAN Insurance a call today:

Energy-Efficient and Eco-Friendly Kitchen Improvements

Functionality and design may have always been top considerations for homeowners, but today, eco-friendliness and energy efficiency are becoming the top priorities.

From the materials used in the build and design phase to the long-term sustainability and energy conservation of appliances, there are many ways to improve your kitchen to make it more environmentally friendly.

Low-flow faucets

Did you know that low-flow faucets can substantially lower your kitchen’s water usage? The best part is that you will hardly notice the difference. When buying faucets, look for “water-saving faucets” or those with an adjustable flow rate. Environmentally friendly models can significantly reduce water usage within your home.

Smart kitchen appliances

Not only do old appliances make your kitchen look outdated, but they also consume more energy. Upgrade your dishwasher and refrigerator to Energy Star certified models that will preserve electricity and water. Skylights, ventilation fans, kitchen hoods, and ceiling fans are a few other items you can add to your list of ideas for energy-efficient kitchen improvements.

Kitchen Remodeling Contractors

In some cases, changing appliances will require changing the structure of the space. This can be a great opportunity to change the floorplan in a way that opens up space and maximizes your interior square footage. The Best Kitchen Remodel requires the best contractors and designers, and Inspired Remodels has been known for just that. They are licensed remodeling contractors, based in Orange County, California, who showcase proof of their incredible renovations on their website. They offer full interior remodeling and custom carpentry, which is often necessary to change your kitchen into a more energy-efficient or eco-friendly configuration. 

LED lighting

There are a few different levels of energy efficiency in home and kitchen designs. One tiny step that homeowners can take towards a greener home is replacing their light bulbs. Make the change today and replace your bulbs with energy-efficient lighting that uses Light Emitting Diodes (LED) lights that can also last longer. Due to the popularity of LED technology, regular light bulbs are in the process of being phased out and likely won’t be available on store shelves in the near future. They also work better for accent lighting, which looks stunning, instead of general or ambient lighting. For a more modern look, consider track lighting on the ceiling or under your kitchen cabinets. If you have any specialized cabinetry in your kitchen, these types of lights can really accentuate the architecture and design.

Potted plants

Potted plants are nature’s gift to homeowners, especially for those days or seasons when we can’t go outside to enjoy nature. As working from home grows more popular than ever before, many employees are finding themselves working from the kitchen table or kitchen counter. The time homeowners can now save without having to commute to work offers a bit of extra time to plan and execute renovation plans. Houseplants can completely transform and refresh any space. If you aren’t an experienced plant owner, be sure to thoroughly research the care requirements for the plants you intend to give a home to. Each plant requires a different amount of water, nutrients, sunlight, and soil. 

Dogs Offer Comfort and Companionship to Isolated Humans

The pandemic has placed many under ‘work from home’ orders, and many have experienced an unprecedented form of modern-day isolation. Perceived isolation can have a significant impact on one’s life and well-being. A demanding job can be fruitful for employees: the pressure of working to meet challenges motivates growth and resilience. Nonetheless, jobs that demand too much from their workers may lead to high stress, which can exacerbate mental illness and physical symptoms. 

In the fast pace of today’s advanced world, American employees are overwhelmed as work time bleeds into personal time, undeterred by any efforts. According to an American Psychological Association survey, people’s jobs are the second most typical source of stress. Sixty percent of working adults report feeling their jobs are significant sources of stress, influencing them more severely than other types of stress. Job stress is a dangerous emotional and physical response that happens when the job’s requirements are misaligned with the worker’s needs, resources, and capabilities. According to insurance analysis, forty percent of workers feel that their jobs are very stressful, and often result in illnesses and injuries. The demands of people’s careers combined with insufficient resources can lead to stress, which can substantially impair an individual’s mental health. Long hours, increasing demands, tight deadlines, and lack of social interaction can contribute to workers feeling drained, overwhelmed, worried, and negatively impact their mental health.

The benefits of owning a dog

Having a furry companion, especially during the pandemic, is a blessing. For those who live alone and without family and loved ones, a loving dog can transform the whole atmosphere of a living situation. Humans are also social beings by default. Stopping your regular interactions can be challenging at times. Dogs can play a crucial role in stabilizing our happiness while offering great companionship. The support of a furry friend can be as stress-relieving as living with a family member or friend. The dog’s companionship and the bond can make a big difference in a person’s mental and emotional health. 

Having a dog in the house can also boost your mindfulness. With the stress of isolation and work stress, activities such as meditation and yoga can offer relief during hard times. Walking, playing, or petting a dog can be beneficial to reconnecting with our bodies. 

Prioritizing your dog’s health with veterinarian care

But when it comes to your dog’s health, it’s best to always take a proactive approach to management. There are practical but straightforward steps you can take to keep your beloved furry companion happy and healthy. Visiting your vet regularly, providing proper nutrition and exercise, and maintaining a routine vaccination schedule will help your dog grow and thrive. Consult with a Cardiac Veterinary Consultant for heart health concerns, especially for aging dogs or dogs with pre-existing conditions. Veterinary care will also help protect your dog against common parasites like intestinal worms, heartworm, ticks, and fleas. The more you care for your dog, the more you will be able to enjoy life with your furry best friend. Talk to your vet today to identify the ideal prevention and treatment plan for your dog.

Getting Creative

The first truly destructive economic aftershocks of the 2020 pandemic response are beginning to let themselves be known as prices fly sky high across the board. Fuel, food, and just about every other essential consumer good’s price is rocketing upwards as global trade becomes squeezed by physical barriers and disrupted through cyber attacks.

With the price of international shipping going up, in other words, Americans are going to need to learn how to reuse and recycle current equipment, rather than depending on new items being manufactured and imported from elsewhere. This trend extends from clothing to office equipment, and it has plenty of tertiary benefits outside of just cost-savings.

The enormous cargo ships that are the lynchpin of international trade are also some of the most damaging to our planet. Each of these enormous craft is responsible for more greenhouse gasses than literally millions of cars, meaning transporting newly manufactured goods from countries like China to the United States is a singularly massive contribution to climate change. Far more than individual private vehicles and cows, which both coincidentally get far more coverage than global trade!

Buying used for items like office furniture also has the benefit of time savings – new sets often take months to complete fabrication and shipping. Used furniture has a turnaround time measured in weeks rather than months, so if you’re planning on opening up shop as quickly as possible, it’s definitely worth your while shopping for used rather than going directly for new.

Used items have a better cost-to-benefit ratio when it comes to measuring out cost savings over time – the depreciation for new items is far more steep than for used, meaning that they will lose their value far quicker than if you had purchased used. Used items tend to have far more stable and lengthy periods of valuation, so the furniture you purchased retains most of the value you paid for it even in the long term.

If you’re a southern California reader and you’re looking for solid, reliable and reasonably priced Los Angeles office furniture and Cubicles, give Creative Office Design a call. They have multiple show rooms, including ones in Los Angeles and Orange County, and offer a variety of services to go with the furniture sets they offer.

The team at Creative offers the services of their on-staff interior designers, who can help you get the most out of both the furniture set you’re buying and the space that you’re leasing. Their engineers can provide a number of different floor plans using CAD so you can choose from a variety of different sets based on how they would fit with your office’s design and décor.

Creative also offers services such as custom woodworking and refinishing, so if you already have an older office furnishing set that you don’t want to part with, you can hire the team out to revamp and repair the current set. As things get more expensive, these services may just end up saving your business thousands, if not tens of thousands of dollars in the long run.
