Help us help you...

You're sitting in your office and the phone rings, security just noticed a huge flood in the garage and it looks like one of your pipes are broken.  As you're giving directions to contain the damage, there's a knock on your door and you're told that you were double booked and have 2 different companies waiting in the lobby to meet with you.  Your cell phone starts buzzing and your boss is looking for a metric report on tenant retention based on recent program efforts.  Meanwhile you have snoozed your Outlook calendar alerts for the 22nd time noting that budgets are due next week, contracts with the new landscaping company are due tomorrow, there's a birthday celebration for Miss Susie in the office who's turning 50 today, and the new tenants on the 18th floor are moving in on Monday.  When your email ding goes off with yet another message, you're ready to throw your computer out of your window...but when you read the message and see that it's your favorite tenants in Suite 806 and they just had UPS come through their office with their cart and took out a chunk of the wall, you give a sigh of relief.  This is an easy one.  You click "Reply", type in a quick sentence, "Not a problem.  Contact Duggan and Associates and they'll take care of the wall," and then click "Send".  Easy peasy.

While we can't write your budgets for you, and we haven't yet delved into the world of plumbing to fix the broken pipe in your garage, we can be there for your tenants directly when they need work done on their suite (we can also help Miss Susie finish her birthday cake if you'd like).  We can meet with your tenants to discuss paint and wallcovering options, we can suggest the best products for their space and needs, and we can take this "to-do" item off of your list so that you can focus on whether a pie chart or a bar chart is going to be the best way to illustrate those new tenant retention efforts.  Let us handle the painting, it's kinda what we do. ;-)


Duggan at the Runway

Perhaps you've heard the name, "Silicon Valley South" thrown around a bit lately?  If you don't make it south of Marina Del Rey often, then you may not have seen the ENORMOUS amount of construction going on down in Playa Vista right now.  There is literally an entire city being built simultaneously behind the main road throughout this once empty wetland.  The "Silicon Valley South" nickname is a spinoff of the Silicon Valley and the neighboring Santa Monica area currently dubbed as "Silicon Beach," due to the vast number of tech companies that have moved into the area.  In Playa Vista, new office space is being grabbed up by tech giants like YouTube, Microsoft, Google, and Yahoo, allowing them easy access to digital Hollywood.  With all these new businesses in the neighborhood, new housing and entertainment naturally follows.

Amongst the numerous new housing and office developments going up in this new West L.A. community, Runway at Playa Vista is the anchor of it all.  Named after Howard Hughes' private airplane runway that this mixed-use development is being built on, Runway will contain 11 acres of restaurants and bars, retail shops, beauty and fitness venues, a movie theater, grocery stores and banks, in addition to the expansive living and work spaces.  Runway at Playa Vista is going to be on everyone's radar once complete in mid-2015, and Duggan and Associates is proud to be working with Austin Commercial to help bring the vision to life.

Runway at Playa Vista is a project that Duggan and Associates is extremely proud to be working on.  We have over 20 painters on-site painting interior and exterior walls and panels with Sherwin Williams paints, applying wood finishes, floor coatings, and concrete sealers.  As Playa Vista grows into a bustling community with the Runway at its center, we'll always know that the first layer of paint was applied by Duggan and Associates.


Duggan and Associates and Har-Bro are teaming up to throw a party that's sure to be talked about around the water cooler, and you're going to want to be there.  Make sure this date is on your calendar, and email to RSVP and ensure you are notified about any updates and/or changes.  Official invitations will be emailed and posted next month.  This event is open to all Property and Assistant Property Managers.
