Stacy Maurier, Owner and Founding Lawyer, Estate Connection, sat in front of her computer at 4:00 a.m. one October morning searching for an office to house her new law firm. With only four days to find a space, she scrolled through endless search engine listings looking for a suitable match.
“I saw a NABI ad on Kijiji and emailed them right away,” recounted Maurier. “They responded at 8:30 a.m. the next morning and said they had an office for me.”
Maurier made her way over to the NABI Campbell Centre for a facility tour and was met by our leasing and programs manager, Alyssa Tintinaglia. “I was blown away with the type of businesses at NABI,” explained Maurier. “Walking around and seeing the diverse group of people gave me a networking opportunity and I was sold once I saw the setup of the building.”
The NABI team accommodated Maurier’s short timeline by finalizing a contract the next day and quickly painting the space so Estate Connection could move in. A phone was hooked up for the team upon arrival and they had access to all the tools they needed to get started, such as Wi-Fi, photocopiers and boardroom space.
“It really saved my business because I wouldn’t have known how to service my clients if I didn’t have an office,” shared Maurier. “Really, we were able to create a law firm within four days and NABI was instrumental in that.”
Since becoming a tenant in October 2016, Maurier and her team have settled in and are enjoying some of the added benefits. Clients are impressed with the professional atmosphere in the building and Maurier has the ability to ask questions to people in similar business stages by simply walking down the hallway to one of her neighbours.
“I’ve also met independently with Aaron Budnick, Program Director at NABI and Alyssa to ask questions,” Maurier shared. “I’m amazed with the depth of their knowledge and how they’re able to point me in the right direction about who I can contact for marketing, creating a website or whatever else I need.”
