That’s me – if I’m running a conference call, I tend to talk too much — even if we have an agenda, I wander off topic and I’m sure can be confusing to anybody on the call.  On the flip side, I have been on a call where the same thing happens and find myself losing focus and checking email…  so presumably this is happening to others, too.  We are in such a rush, we have too much on our plates, we are trying to cram in way too many meetings, every day, every...

CREW Austin to CREW San Antonio Successful Connection

Posted by on Mar 9, 2014 in Commercial Real Estate, CREW Austin, Texas |

The search for office space began around March 2013.  Through a series of CoStar office space searches and research through CREW San Antonio brokers through the CREWBiz database, I was able to identify some office space suitable for The Stone Group’s client.  After some changes in need and some added time, the CREWnection between CREW Austin and San Antonio members was successful and all parties were pleased.  Thanks to Lindsey Tucker with CBRE of San Antonio who represented the...
