With the changes taking place in the real estate industry many agents and brokerages are looking for ways to update or change their real estate offices. In some cases business models have required brokerage to cut back or eliminate larger office space while other firms have chosen to expand and grow their space. Both of these groups are faced with making changes to their physical office space.
Well known teNeues Publishing Group has a wonderful selection of books that focus on design and styling. I am a big fan of their books titled "Office Design" and "Showrooms". I love these books because they allow me to peak inside of some of the most unique and progressive spaces in the world. Most of the offices I would never duplicate but seeing such beautiful office and showrooms gets my brain thinking of new office ideas.
Some may find this as an appropriate follow up to last weeks topic: "Do Most Agents Need A Real Estate Office At Their Brokers Office?" When I posed this question my idea wasn't that real estate offices would close their doors and we would all work out of briefcases but that there have been changes in the industry that have caused agents and brokerages to look at alternative ways to operate their offices and meet the needs of their clients. "Office Designs" and "Showrooms" can help shine some light visually.
Another book that is quite impressive along the same lines is titled "Ultimate New York Design" which is also by teNeues. If you are looking for ideas beyond the traditional office these books are certainly worth a look. Here is a link to their corportate website: teNeues
