  • Consistent

    Our properties are all Class A real estate with furnishings, housewares, utilities and expenses all included in one easy bill. The quality of our linens and towels is consistent in all our properties and regularly checked to make sure they are on par with our high standards. We have developed a standardized "kitchen kit" that is available to property owners to purchase to ensure the best quality products for our tenants. This provides a standard of housewares for all of our properties. See also our Standards of Quality in the right-hand sidebar on this page.
  • Signature Properties

    Our goal is to ensure that our clients are 100% satisfied with our properties. In order to maintain consistencies throughout our offices and the properties we offer, we have developed the AvenueWest Signature Property which provides the same minimum standards for all of these units.

    Since our product is not the typical "cookie-cutter" corporate housing unit, all of our furnishings are going to be vastly different depending on the private property owner's style; however, all of the minimum required items will be the norm across all of our properties and follow all standard corporate housing inventory requirements.

    We work with fully vetted linen and towel vendors to maintain consistency in the quality of all of our linens and towels. All of our linens and towels are checked after every tenant to ensure that they are still holding up to our standards. Any damaged linens and/or towels are taken out of our inventory and no additional costs will be billed to our clients for these items. All of our sheets have a minimum 200 threadcount. Pillows are replaced in between stays to ensure maximum hygiene. Mattress pads and mattresses are checked in between each tenant also. We have developed a standardized kitchen kit that can be purchased by our property owners to ensure the best quality products for our tenants, which can easily be replaced when needed. This provides a standard of housewares for all of our properties. Regardless if our property owners decide to purchase the kitchen kit, or decide to furnish the unit on their own, all of our housewares (i.e. kitchen items) will be matching.

  • About the Entrepreneurial

    Spirited Dallas AW Owners Who Find Passion in Managing Furnished (and Unfurnished) Rental Properties in the Heart of Dallas, Texas

    Paul Guthrie is a long-time real estate agent and property manager in Dallas, Texas. Amy Guthrie is a former technology sales associate turned marketing and sales agent. Together the couple operate and own the Dallas franchise of AvenueWest Global Franchise, a global corporate housing agency.

    As two entrepreneurial spirits, this hard-working husband and wife duo bring unique skills and energies to the "family" business. Amy describes Paul as the "nerve-center" of the business, as he runs the operations and brings the real estate expertise to the table. Paul describes Amy as the "creative one" who oversees the company's marketing and sales.

    With growth dreams on their minds, the couple learned about AvenueWest Global Franchise in May 2011 and they knew it would be a perfect fit for helping them achieve their growth goals. They quickly decided and purchased the Dallas franchise in August 2011.

    Paul says, "While my independent real estate business was doing okay, I knew it could do even better. I thought adding furnished housing to our property management company sounded like the perfect opportunity to give my business the competitive advantage it needed. I also knew it would help increase our revenue [through the addition of another income stream] over time, which I knew was essential to growing my business."

    Since starting AvenueWest Dallas, Amy says their company has gotten a "leg up" in managing their approximately 130 unfurnished and nearly 20 furnished properties more strategically.

    "Our only wish is we had more furnished properties in our portfolio. Demand is high," says Paul.

    Further, Amy says that AvenueWest Global Franchise has given their business the "tried and true" tools and foundation needed to operate more efficiently.

    "Running a property management company can be time-consuming, but with AvenueWest Global Franchise behind us, we are able to streamline many of our backend processes so we can focus on our clients first and foremost," says Amy.

    The couple also agrees that managing a growing business can be challenging.

    "Managing a slew of rental properties takes constant attention to detail and quick reactions. Oftentimes we find ourselves scrambling to fill vacancies or running amok managing client requests. It's definitely more challenging managing furnished rentals vs. unfurnished rentals, but we know it will get easier with time."

    On a personal note, the Guthries have been married for six years and work where they play. "We love the downtown Dallas area. By living here we're able to share our passion for Dallas with others and truly help them find the rental properties they need. It's true what they say, 'If you love what you do and do what you love, then it's not work.' We couldn't agree more," says Amy.
