Faces of Weston with Iliana Cardentey of Title Authority
Posted On December 13, 2019 Posted By: Jason Tiemeier

Buying and selling a property takes time and involves many different people such as real estate agents, buyers, sellers, mortgage brokers but also a title agent.  But what does a title company do?

Title companies play several key roles in common real estate transactions. Title companies generally act as the combined agent of the insurance company, the buyer, the seller, and any other parties related to a real estate transaction, such as mortgage lenders. The title company reviews title issues, insurance policies, facilitates closings, and files and records paperwork.

Recently we sat down with Iliana Cardentey of Title Authority to learn more about her company, how she got started, why she chose Lakeside and what she enjoys doing when not working. 

Tell us about your company and what you do?

Title Authority is a bilingual South Florida Title company that specializes in real estate closings, title insurance, title searches and escrow services. Our goal is to provide quality customer service at a competitive price.

How did you get started in your industry?

I became a Licensed Title Agent 18 years ago. I wanted not just a job, but a trade where I could help individuals reach the American dream. 

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

Our personal touch of going that extra mile to make sure that the transaction closes.  Whether it is at a Starbucks Coffee Shop, a Senior Living facility, or on the hood of a car, we will make it happen.  We take the initiative and get it done. 

Where do you see your business in 5 years?

In the next 5 years, I see myself revealing the grand opening of two additional offices in Miami-Dade and Palm Beach County and to become a very successful female entrepreneur.

Tell me about yourself?

I was born in Havana Cuba in 1967. I am the youngest of 3 siblings. I left the Castro regime in 1969 with my family and was raised in Paterson, New Jersey.  At the age of 13, I moved to Florida with my family and have been here since then.  I graduated from Hialeah Senior High School in 1985 and attended Miami Dade Community College after graduation like most graduates. I attended Florida International University afterward to obtain my Paralegal Certification. I worked at numerous different jobs from Retail Stores, Fitness Centers and a personal injury firm. It was not until I was exposed to the Real Estate Industry that I knew what I enjoyed and what I wanted to do. Especially educating individuals on what I know best. Which is Title. 

When the market crashed in the year 2008, I attended Keiser University and majored in Health Services Administration. I was not sure if the real estate market would ever be the same and wanted to prepare myself for the worst. I negotiated Short Sales for a while until I finally was able to return to what I enjoyed and did best. Using my knowledge and experience as a Title Agent to close transactions and manage many offices. I worked at many different agencies and law firms and took a lot of abuse from bad employers and hoped that someday I would be able to open my own. That dream came true in August of 2019. After all these years I finally accomplish the dream I had for such a long time. My very own agency. 

Other than work, what are you passionate about?

I work as a volunteer for the elderly. Also, spending quality time with my son and elderly parents.

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

I enjoy reading romantic novels and espionage and military-science novels. My favorite authors are Nicolas Sparks, Tom Clancy and Danielle Steele.  And by the way one of my favorite places is Disney World in Orlando.

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

We choose Lakeside Executive Suites for the location along with the concierge-like services they provide which allow for a happy work environment.

Time Management Tips to Help Your Grow Your Business
Posted On December 12, 2019 Posted By: Jason Tiemeier

Effective time management is, arguably, the single most critical skill you can cultivate to advance your business objectives. If you are not managing your time well, there is little chance you will hit your marks either in the office or away from it.

No matter who you are and where you are at in the journey of life, time is of great concern. Existential arguments aside, nobody has more time than the next person, and there’s really nothing you can do to get more of it. However, there are ways you can manage the time you have to make the most of it.

Time Management Tips for Business Professionals

There are lots of habits you can cultivate to make your time more productive. Here are a few of our top tips to get you started:

Time Management Tip #1: Meditate, Exercise, Me Time

Every morning before you dive into your work, take time to balance yourself with 20 minutes of meditation or vigorous exercise. Go for a run, have a workout, take a shower, and get ready to rock the day. Your mental focus will be heightened, and your energy will be focused, and you’ll be prepared to hit the ground running.

Time Management Tip #2: Jump on High-Priority Tasks First

People tend to either do what’s easiest first or go directly to what’s most difficult. For more effective time management, use a priority system, and be sure you’re tackling those tasks first. Once you’ve got the hotlist out of the way, it’s okay to return to your easy/hard default, but you’ll never be behind the eight-ball.

Time Management Tip #3: Use the 80-20 Rule

Some people call this the Pareto Principle, but whatever you call it, the philosophy is that 80 percent of the results derive from 20 percent of the effort. The trick is to identify what that 20 percent is that’s driving the results and put the focus on those tasks.

Time Management Tip #4: Schedule Your Email Time

One of the easiest ways to tank your time management efforts is by allowing email to get in the way. While it’s important to jump on critical communications right away, try to prioritize what must be responded to and leave the rest for later. Schedule a specific time in your day for reading and responding to email and don’t get caught up in distraction.

Time Management Tip #5: Turn Social and App Notifications Off

It’s not relevant to your business objectives to know what your social connections are up to, who friended you, or what’s trending on Twitter. Turn off notifications completely during your working hours by enabling “do not disturb” on your smartphone. If you’re concerned with missing business-related calls, you can set specific contacts as VIPs, and then their communications will always come through.

Join Our Cause with Children’s Harbor; Helping Families Stay Together
Posted On November 21, 2019 Posted By: Jason Tiemeier

For the past few years, we have been working with Children’s Harbor in Pembroke Pines during the holidays. The organization provides family-oriented group homes to children and teenagers in the foster care system, helping to keep siblings together despite the family crisis.

Children’s Harbor is so vital to these children, who are often affected by the tragedy, trauma, abuse, or unfortunate circumstances that could easily tear them apart. Children’s Harbor recognizes that siblings and family members in these situations need each other to lean on.

Keeping Families Together

There is nothing more important at the holidays than family. Many of us take our families for granted, but not every child has that kind of stability.

Pregnant or parenting teens are also at risk, either of losing their children to the system or of not having the tools and support they need to be a good parent to their child. Children’s Harbor supports the needs of young mothers, too, giving them a safe and supporting network to turn to so they can finish school and go on to lead a happy, fulfilled, and productive life with their child.

In many cases, when families are caught up in the system, kids end up being removed from the home. Often, they are sent to different places, kept apart from the people who know and love them best. By keeping families together, it betters their chances of moving past their circumstances, reducing risk, and giving them the hope and support they need to carry on.

Through the organization’s efforts, 24 siblings and 12 pregnant or parenting teens will thrive on their eight-acre campus and residence. Additionally, 200 families will receive in-home parenting counseling, ensuring that despite their challenges, they have a fighting chance of attaining financial stability and going on to live a happy and productive life.

Our Contribution and Commitment to Children’s Harbor

We take our commitment to Children’s Harbor very seriously. Each year, they send us the names, genders, and ages of everyone in their residential homes. We then create a holiday tree with a special ornament for each child and teen and invite our members to choose one of them so that they can donate a gift.

We deliver their gifts by mid-December so these families can put them under the tree and enjoy the magic of Christmas as every young person should.

Charitable giving is a great way to close out the year for many reasons. Many businesses like that it gives them a break on their taxes, but the real value lies in providing hope to those less fortunate than us.

Think about how you can make a difference this holiday season. No matter what is near and dear to your heart, chances are you know of a worthy cause or a way to contribute something that will bring joy. Just look in your heart – it’s already there.

Of course, if you’re stuck for ideas, Children’s Harbor is always in need of a helping hand. Donate, become a mentor, or volunteer your time – whatever you can do, we assure you, it will be welcomed with open arms.

Five Best Podcasts You Should Be Listening to Right Now
Posted On June 17, 2019 Posted By: Jason Tiemeier

Podcasts are gaining ground in popular culture with topics that range from serial murder to sex to the mysteries of the universe and beyond. But with more than 750,000 podcasts and 30 million episodes to choose from, where do you start?

To help you save time in your day in the quest for discovery, here’s our hotlist of the five best podcasts you should be listening to right now:

1.    The Dropout (news, crime, politics)

The Dropout is about Elizabeth Holmes, America’s youngest self-made female billionaire, her rise and the plunging fall that ensued after it was learned that Theranos, her disruptive healthcare tech firm, was all based on a lie. Hosted by Rebecca Jarvis, a journalist who is known for her interviews with some of the biggest names in business and technology, this podcast takes the listener on a journey through the three-year investigation and includes interviews with investors, former patients, employees, and the deposition of Elizabeth Holmes. Available on ABC Podcasts.

2.    Monster: Season 1: Atlanta Monster; Season 2: The Zodiac Killer (crime, culture)

Season one of Monster takes a deep dive into the Atlanta child murders that happened in the late 1970s and early 1980s, looking back at the crimes, the killer, and the questions that remain. In the more recently released season two, the producers tackle the Zodiac killer, who terrorized the state of California in the 1960s and 1970s, a case that was never officially solved. If you love true crime, this is a knockout. Listen on iHeartRadio.

3.    Winnetka: A Memoir (culture, literature)

Back in the 1970s, Jessica Harper was a familiar face in feature films like Dario Argento’s cult classic Suspiria, as well as Pennies from Heaven, and Stardust Memories. Rather than writing a book, she has opted to reveal her story as an episodic podcast, named for the Chicago suburb where she grew up. Discover family secrets, social unrest in the Eisenhower era, and a genuinely fascinating chronicle of her life are set against Harper’s original musical compositions. Listen free on www.winnetkapodcast.com or Apple Podcasts.

4.    Rule of Three (comedy, culture)

Hosted by UK comedic writers Jason Hazeley and Joel Morris, Rule of Three talks to comedians and people who create comedy about things that are funny to them. The breadth and diversity of guests and the stuff they get into is brilliant, and it gives us a window into how some of the most talented comics and comedic writers of our time get inspired. Listen on Apple Podcasts.

5.    The Habitat (non-fiction, science)

Somewhere between Big Brother and Lost in Space, The Habitat is the true tale of six volunteers chosen to participate in a NASA experiment who are sent to a remote Hawaiian island to live out a year-long simulation of what it would be like to be astronauts, living in a habitat on Mars. Addictive, to say the least. Listen on Spotify, Apple Podcasts, iHeartRadio, and just about every other podcast service.

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.

Five Tips to Maintain a Healthy Relationship with Social Media
Posted On March 26, 2019 Posted By: Jason Tiemeier

The rise of social media has changed the way we view the world. More than 70 percent of Americans are actively engaged on at least one social platform, but if we’re talking about millennials, that number climbs to about 98 percent.

In business, these numbers are too significant to ignore. If every customer you want to reach is on social, it stands to reason you want to reach them in that way. It’s part of your marketing strategy, it helps you generate new leads, and it’s a way to stay on top of the competition.

And what about your personal social profiles? Everybody’s got a few. The average person in the United States maintains seven social profiles. At the end of the day, that’s a lot of time spent on social. At some point, if you don’t get a handle on it, it’s going to start to affect your real-world, terrestrial life.

But how do you turn away when there’s so much going on all the time?

The truth is, turning away will do you, your relationships, your productivity, and your psyche a lot of good. The problem is, that’s easier said than done.

Here are our five top tips for maintaining a healthy relationship with social media:

1.    Schedule your daily social media time

Determine a set amount of time to update your pages, post content, and respond to messages on social. Set the timer on your smartphone and don’t ignore it when it goes off.

2.    If you really want to talk to your friend, call them

Along with being a super-computer, a CMS, and a fabulous camera, your smartphone is actually an excellent tool for making phone calls. Miss that person? Give them a call! Don’t have their phone number? They’re probably not your friend.

3.    Disable social notifications

Notifications are a great way to kick your social media anxiety into high gear. In your settings, you’ll find that you can disable them. This way, you can check in during your allotted time (see #1) and otherwise just get on with life.

4.    Embrace the moment

Authenticity is cool. Authenticity is all about being who you are. However, you can’t be authentic if you’re always focused on what other people are doing. Take the time to revel in your own life. Make your own moments. Because there is nothing more authentic than just being yourself.

5.    Choose your social platforms wisely

In business, as in life, there’s no point in investing time into something that you’re not going to get any value from. Having too many social profiles dilutes your efforts, and if you aren’t active on them, it could actually do more harm than good. Choose the platforms that are most beneficial to you and delete the rest.

Do you have any great tips for maintaining a healthy relationship with social media? We’d love to hear about them! Drop by Lakeside Executive Suites for a tour and get some honest-to-goodness face time.

Why Larger Companies are Choosing Coworking Spaces
Posted On March 17, 2019 Posted By: Jason Tiemeier

Since their first appearance in the 1990s, coworking spaces and shared workspaces in general, have been disrupting the way we all get things done.

The fact is, many of the world’s top corporations, GM, IBM, and Microsoft among them, are renting coworking space. In 2018, big companies like these accounted for 30 percent of coworking’s monthly business.

Here are some of the reasons why larger companies are choosing coworking spaces today:

Coworking is more cost-effective for larger companies

Per square foot, a coworking membership is far less expensive than traditional office space

With more and more of the workforce opting to work outside of the office, coworking spaces are seen as a more viable choice, financially.

Coworking memberships give companies a way to offer their employees the tools and support they need without having to allocate permanent office space, workstations, parking spaces, and so on. It is also an easy way to scale up or down as the need dictates – and you’ll never have to worry about not having enough office space – or having a bunch of empty offices.

Coworking offers a better workplace experience

Trends aside, studies show that more than half of all employees of enterprise companies are looking for new jobs. Gallup’s State of the American Workplace found that 85 percent of enterprise employees are disengaged at work.

These alarming statistics are, in part, urging large companies to find ways to offer their employees a better workplace experience. Coworking spaces contribute to company culture in a positive way and chances are, if an employee is happy in their workspace, they may stay in their jobs longer.

Coworking offers proximity to innovation

With a booming gig economy, top talent is getting harder and harder to nail down. Coworking spaces, especially those that cater to the tech sector, are a hotbed of talent, giving larger companies easy access to the innovation they so dearly seek.

The collaborative element is so prevalent in coworking spaces that it’s relatively easy to connect with talent this way. Along with the cost savings and vibrant atmosphere, it’s a way to add value without taking on the expense of recruitment and full-time payroll.

Coworking helps large companies expand into new markets

For companies looking to expand into new territory, a coworking space provides a way to establish a base of operations and test the waters quickly. Companies save time by not having to secure office space in advance, and they save money by not having to invest in technology or other office amenities. It’s a turnkey situation from which just about every corporation can find benefit.

How Coworking has Changed the Way We Work
Posted On January 26, 2019 Posted By: Jason Tiemeier

 

As remote working, freelancing, and entrepreneurship continues to strengthen the foundations of our economy, coworking has established itself as a viable way to work, build a business, meet and network with other, like-minded individuals.

How coworking benefits companies

Looking beyond the benefits to the individual, coworking is good for companies too. It has also allowed larger companies the ability to downsize, to let go of unused office space and instead provide employees with an open office environment that allows them the freedom they want while still maintaining a connection to their teams and their mission.

For companies that maintain teams in multiple cities, coworking provides them with an affordable option that makes growth possible. Maintaining coworking memberships helps companies provide their employees with every possible office amenity without having to outfit a new office and it supports profitability even during times of scale.

 

The evolution of coworking spaces

Coworking began in a tiny one-room space in San Francisco. Of course, there were precursors to it … the hackerspaces and makerspaces of 1990s Berlin came first, and then there were small business “incubators” or innovation centers that started popping up all over the world not long thereafter.

However, the first true coworking space was opened in 2005 by a coder named Brad Neuberg who was simply sick of working by himself. He was a social guy by nature, but, working remotely for his various clients was a lonely business and he felt that he would be more productive and happier if he could share his workspace with others just like him.

The idea was a bit of a sleeper, but it took off. Actually, even though the space itself was unremarkable (compared to many of today’s examples), Brad’s version of coworking was not lacking for amenities. As he shared space with a wellness center, massages and meditation were part of the picture, right from the beginning.

Many “oms” later, slowly and purposefully, coworking grew into a living, breathing thing. From such humble beginnings, his movement grew into a revolution. Today, there are almost 15,000 coworking spaces all over the world. It has disrupted the way we work, it has disrupted the real estate industry, and it has shown us how to look beyond the cubicle and forward into a world that values innovation and the power of collaboration.

Today, coworking has become an integral part of many business’ success. It provides entrepreneurs and solopreneurs with affordable options for building their companies. It supports global enterprise with a platform that allows them to scale with ease, and it is also an avenue that provides companies of any size the ability to optimize their workspaces without compromising productivity.

Getting Focused to Start the New Year
Posted On January 14, 2019 Posted By: Jason Tiemeier

We all head into a new year with a lot of goals that we are totally motivated to accomplish. Finish the great American novel. Lose 20 pounds. Go to the gym more regularly. Land more new clients. Get out of debt.

But … what generally begins with a big push generally ends up getting derailed by circumstances beyond our control. Stuff happens, after all.

So, if you’re looking back on 2018 and trying to get a handle on what you actually did accomplish, you might find that some of your plans took a left turn here and there. And there may well have been good reasons for that, so don’t beat yourself up too much.

However, there are reasons that perfectly well-laid plans go awry. Knowing what these chicanes are may help you overcome them in the year ahead. Some of the reasons you may have lost focus include:

 

Lack of clarity. Your plan may not have been executable because there wasn’t much thought put into it in the first place. Without a plan, you lay yourself open to distraction and having to jump on other priorities as they present themselves.

Solution: Map out your path to success. Put it on the schedule. Prioritize it.

 

Setting too lofty a goal. If your goal is largely unachievable by any standards, it’s not likely you will get there.

Solution: If you want to increase your business, set a realistic goal of five percent growth. If you exceed it, celebrate!

 

You’re a procrastinator. If your goal is going to be difficult and you’re a procrastinator by nature, you run the risk of putting it on the back burner only to reapply it to next year’s list of resolutions.

Solution: Break difficult tasks down into smaller chunks and work them into your workflow in a comfortable way. Each step towards your goal will help you will gain the momentum you need to crack it open.

 

Getting focused in 2019: connecting smaller tasks to the big picture

Sometimes, we announce our goals without thinking about where the whole process is going to end up several years down the line. Connecting your immediate goals to a broader vision of the future helps to keep things in perspective. The ultimate goal may be unreachable in the short-term and things may change dramatically between now and then but being able to visualize the end result will help keep you on track – even if you have to readjust for market trends and other circumstances beyond your control.

So, if the ultimate goal is 25 years from now, you’ll have to look at shorter increments of time to set milestones in between. 90-day intervals are doable chunks of time and, generally, you will be able to see energizing results based on your efforts, tweak your methodology, and move forward into the next 90 days with confidence.

90 days is enough time to accomplish a lot. It also provides a high level of clarity along with a sense of urgency. At the end of it, you will move on to the next 90-day goal with renewed purpose, taking yet another step forward towards your ultimate goal.

Do you have any tips for staying focused? We’d love to hear about them! If you are a small business owner or entrepreneur, reach out today to find out how we can help you grow.
