Did you know that more than 63 million people are residents of communities with a homeowner’s association? That means 24 percent of U.S. homes are in community associations. This month we had the opportunity to learn more homeowners associations by talking with Troy Modlin.  From Troy, we’ll learn about his company, his background and why he chose Lakeside Executive Suites.

Tell us about your company and what you do?

Troy’s Property Management Group is a property management company the focuses our attention on homeowner associations and condo’s.   Part of the management includes payables, receivables and monthly financials, in addition to managing all of the independent contractors that the community hires.

How did you get started in your industry?

I started in 2006 working out of Cooper City.  TPMG was started in February of 2014 managing 4 HOA’s in Weston that I currently continue to manage.  After moving to Weston in 2004 a friend of mine asked me if I would be interested in property management since, he worked for a company.  Our conversations sparked my interest.  Once I began working in management, I was immediately approached by many different associates & vendors about starting my own company.  I was told on numerous occasions that what I was providing to my communities is special and stood out amongst the competition.  After many years of encouragement and small loans from my father and friends, I took a leap of faith and purchased the accounts I was managing from my old company.  In addition, I was able to retain the employment of my assistant Tina Franco who also took a leap of faith to follow me in my endeavor.  Since 2014 I can honestly say that each day is a blessing and I have never been happier.

What is something about your business that most people do not know?

Most homeowner’s living in a community do not realize that management is not the enemy and work at the board of director’s direction.  At TPMG we strive to provide personal communication with everyone.  We do our best to provide a human voice and interaction with the homeowners on a daily basis.  As the owner of the company it is my goal to provide solutions to issues and communicate them to the owners and the Board of Directors.

Where do you see your business in 5 years?

Our goal in 5 years is to be able to provide the same high-quality service as we do today without diluting our core mission of serving the communities in Weston and the surrounding area.

Tell me about yourself?

I was born in NYC and grew up in Great Neck, Long Island.   I am very proud of my background of being a graduate from Boston University and attending New York Law School.  I live in Weston with my wife Tammy and my two boys Charlie (15) and Shane (10) who have gone to school in Weston.  I am also a proud member of B’nai Aviv and served on the Board of Directors for five years. 

Other than work, what are you passionate about?

I am passionate about my children and my family.  My oldest son is a freshman at Western High School and is the clean-up hitter on JV.  As a former Division 1 Baseball Player at Boston University, it makes me very proud that he chose to follow in my footsteps. 

What types of activities or hobbies do you enjoy outside of work?

Most of my activities outside of work involve my kids.  We love to go fishing and do watersport activities.  Every Sunday you will find me playing Basketball at B’nai Aviv.

Why did you choose Lakeside and how has working here helped your business?

There were several options I looked into before deciding on Lakeside Executive Suites.  However, I was sold the first day I came here to visit a friend of mine here.   The very friendly receptionist answered all of my questions and provided amazing energy and customer service.  That person was Ysel Hernandez.  Why do I continue to appreciate Lakeside?  Simply because it is like a family atmosphere that is close to home.  Anytime I have a question or issue, the staff has a solution. 

The Many Benefits of a Standing Desk
Posted On April 29, 2019 Posted By: Jason Tiemeier

Standing desks are becoming more common in the modern workplace. Employees love them because they alleviate the monotony of sitting all day, and employers love them because it keeps their workforce happy and healthy.

Let’s look at some of the many benefits of a standing desk:

1.     Sitting for long hours is bad for your body and mind

It’s been proven through scientific study that a sedentary life can promote atrophy – not just in the muscles, but in the brain as well. The best way to avoid the damage is to avoid sitting for long periods of time. Even if you’re tied to your workstation all day, a standing desk allows you to change it up, adjust for different heights, and generally keep your blood flowing.

2.     Standing desks may reduce the risk of chronic disease

Some of the medical issues that standing desks can help to prevent are obesity, diabetes, and heart disease, simply by raising your metabolism. One study concluded that standing while you work can actually add two years to your expected life span.

3.     Standing desks may help you lose weight

The number of calories you burn in a day working at a standing desk is significantly more than it would be if you were sitting. Depending on your gender and how much lean muscle mass you already have, you could burn up to .2 calories more per minute. Hey, it’s probably not a substitute for the gym, but every little bit counts!

4.     Standing desks reduce back pain

Lower back pain is the scourge of anyone who works at a desk all day. No matter how perfectly engineered your ergonomic chair is, you are at risk for muscle aches, bulging discs, and more. Most of this pain is caused by postural stress, which can be alleviated by standing. An adjustable standing desk allows you to position yourself optimally so that you can avoid low back pain. A 2014 study showed that people who suffered from back pain noticed a 32 percent improvement after using a standing desk for just a couple of weeks. Another study showed that upper back and neck pain were reduced by more than 50 percent.

5.     Standing desks improve your mood

People that use standing desks tend to be happier, healthier, and less stressed-out than their chair-bound counterparts. Movement itself can be beneficial in boosting energy levels and attention-span, but it translates to a better quality of life overall.

6.     Standing desks boost productivity

If you’re used to sitting at your desk, you might be concerned about how it’s going to affect your productivity if you change things up. The truth is, if you feel better, you’re going to have greater focus and work more efficiently, which means your productivity will get a boost.

What’s the Difference Between a Dedicated Desk and Coworking?
Posted On April 16, 2019 Posted By: Jason Tiemeier

With all the flexible office options available, you might be wondering what the differences are in each program and, ultimately, which one is right for you. If you are trying to decide between a dedicated desk and a coworking membership, we’ve put together a handy guide to help you make your choice.

Coworking: pros and cons

Coworking features an open-office environment and amenities like business-grade internet, copy machine, printers, and complimentary coffee and tea. You have 24/7 secure access, so you can work whenever you want, and on-demand amenities like meeting rooms and administrative support are available to you if you need them.

Coworking pros

  1. Coworking is affordable. You can join for the day, week, month, or you could purchase a long-term membership for access to the space and all its amenities.
  2. Coworking is flexible. You have complete freedom to come and go as you please or even discontinue your membership if you’re not going to need the space for a while.
  3. Coworking supports your business growth. If you need to hire new employees, you don’t have to worry about outfitting a whole new office for them. Your coworking space allows you to scale up or down as needed.
  4. Coworking is collaborative. Whether you find talented people to help you grow your business or connect with others who need your expertise, it’s a vibrant and creative environment that can help you get where you want to be.

Coworking cons

  1. Little to no privacy. Coworking is an open-office concept, so if you need to make a lot of phone calls or require quiet to do your work, you might not have much control over the situation.
  2. You have to take your stuff with you when you leave. Since you are sharing a space, you don’t leave your computer or other work items behind, which might be an inconvenience.
  3. Lots of distractions. If you are easily distracted, a coworking space might encourage your procrastination.

Dedicated desk: pros and cons

Still unsure? Let’s take a deeper dive and look at what a dedicated desk can offer:

Dedicated desk pros

  1. You have your own desk. You have your own storage space, and you won’t have to pack up your computer when you leave. If you prefer to work with multiple screens, this is great news.
  2. Professional business address. A dedicated desk comes with access to our business address, which can be used on all your printed and online marketing collateral.
  3. You can personalize your workspace with photos or desk amenities.
  4. You have access to all the benefits of coworking, with an additional layer of features.

Dedicated desk cons

  1. Potential for distractions. You are still in an open office, so the tone in the room can change quickly as people come and go.
  2. You are stuck in one place, looking at the same view every day.
  3. Dedicated desks are more expensive than coworking.
