Speakers: Cindy and Wayne Minks
Cindy and Wayne Minks: We saw Avenue West as a vehicle to help us accomplish our goals to create a lifestyle, a retirement and a legacy that we can leave for our children.
Cindy and Wayne Minks: So what I love about being an Avenue West franchise owner is that there's already systems in place of how to do things, accounting of work how to do things. So you don't really have to invent the wheel, everything is done and there's a good team behind us that are in the background working and doing the marketing and PR work so you can concentrate on the day-to-day business
Cindy and Wayne Minks: own hometown. And and one of the ways that it's really changed our life is through the relationships that we developed with professional bankers and mortgage people and things like that who have been there to help us to secure our own future through the acquisition of our own portfolio of short term rentals.
Cindy and Wayne Minks: What do we do better than anybody else? Frankly, we do everything better than everybody else. We do corporate housing better. We do short term housing better. We do customer service better than anybody else. We answer calls, we take care of issues. We have a very quick 24 hour, "get back to it" service. Unless we have an emergency then we're right on it. So when it comes to corporate housing and short term leasing AvenueWest does it better than anybody else.
Cindy and Wayne Minks: Well, it's been a long journey Wayne and I were the first franchise owners with Avenue West in Colorado Springs. So we've seen a lot of changes, a lot of growth and it's been a great journey and a great opportunity for us to learn to work with groups and other franchise owners and we all pull together and be successful.
Cindy and Wayne Minks: We had a goal to acquire 12 properties and we have 11. So we, we've almost reached our goal. It's been a great opportunity for us and it's allowed us to create like a lifestyle, a living, a future and a legacy. And so it's been an awesome journey
