Savings with a View
The warm, sunny days are coming. With all this sunshine, a few things are to be expected: Instagram worthy sunsets, beach days, and complaints about hot window offices. Yep. If one of your properties includes window offices or any place that people sit in front of windows for long periods of time… someone will complain

With the Congressional session in full swing back east, there are a few issues that BOMA International is following.
