Beginning in 2001 with one office in Chicago, Centro Media has quickly grown into a highly reputable media company providing media management software with 11 offices around the United States and Canada. Established in March of 2011, Centro’s Washington, DC office has thrived, growing from 2 people to 16 with continual expansion each year. Centro chose AdvantEdge West End to establish their DC office knowing that AdvantEdge would work with them to expand into the 16 employee operation they occupy today.
Within the first year Centro’s employees expanded into two offices and have continued to grow each year. Centro’s DC office now consists of 7 offices and 16 employees with extra workspace for colleagues visiting from other branches. Instead of choosing to sublease office space in Washington, DC, Grace Briscoe and her team opted for a more flexible approach through serviced office space. With the uncertainty of how the DC office would perform Centro needed to keep liability and overhead costs low while preserving options for future expansion. Discussing the search for office space Grace recalls, “It’s been an incredible advantage to have so much flexibility as we grew our team in the area. Revenue growth and the headcount needed to service that revenue can be difficult to project long term, especially as we launch in a new market, and the ability to scale our facilities along with our team has definitely enabled our growth. Starting with a small team, the ability to have space that could grow with us, without being locked into a traditional commercial lease for 5+ years has been a huge asset!”
Grace and her team also value the on-site assistance that AdvantEdge provides in addition to Class A workspaces. Reflecting on their experience with the AdvantEdge Staff, Grace said, “The AdvantEdge team is amazing. They always make sure all of our employees have everything they need and they are always accessible and ready to help.”
From small administrative tasks to large construction projects, AdvantEdge clients have the flexibility to adjust their workspaces and business services to accommodate every stage of growth. Without the burden of multi-year terms and inflexible workspaces, businesses can grow at the rate that is right for them. Backed by years of industry experience and on-site support, AdvantEdge works with each client to provide everything they need while keeping options open for potential growth.

LogicNets was founded in 2004 and by May 2010 the team was running out of space in their original location and looking for new offices. As a temporary solution, LogicNets moved to the 4th floor of AdvantEdge's Chevy Chase location for the summer. The summer came and went, the team continued to grow, and they decided to stay with AdvantEdge.
Since they were staying, the team added color to their space by having one wall of each of their offices painted bright orange in a nod to their founder's Dutch background.
Eventually outgrowing their original space, the team moved to their own private suite. They continue to add offices as the company grows, and you can always identify them by the bright orange walls in their space.
LogicNets is a software company and their expert system software lets businesses capture decision-making processes without writing a line of code. Their platform instantly converts knowledge into scalable, online applications that can be shared by staff, customers, and partners. While the LogicNets team are experts in software, they know AdvantEdge's expertise is in customized office management and trusts them to maintain their offices, phones, and Internet access so they can focus on their software and customers.
LogicNets’ customer base includes such high-profile organizations as Ford Motor Company, Ingersoll Rand, CBS, Fox Networks, Illumina, and NASA.
Offering the first online expert system that businesses could customize to fit their unique processes, the LogicNets team originally used their platform to create and deliver very large and sophisticated custom solutions, automating a wide range of business processes. In recent years, the company has taken its substantial portfolio of decision support applications and packaged them to provide industry-specific solutions in four focused areas:
With this focused approach, LogicNets continues to grow and they plan on staying with AdvantEdge. They even talk about eventually taking over a whole floor. "A sea of orange walls," jokes Ferwerda.

West End Strategy Team offers a full range of strategic communications services and has proudly called AdvantEdge Business Center’s 1250 24th Street, NW location home for the past 9 months. What distinguishes West End Strategy Team from other prestigious communications firms in our nation’s capital? Their growing staff (11 full-time employees and 2-3 seasonal interns) works together to identify their clients’ audience while honing both message and strategy to secure targeted traditional and online media placements.
Since their launch last year, AdvantEdge has worked closely with Matt Dorf to ensure a seamless transition from his former space in Woodley Park to his new “home” in the heart of the West End.
President and founder Matt Dorf shares his company’s vision: “It’s not enough to secure outstanding media placements. What maximizes impact? Our next step.” His team has fostered longstanding relationships with media outlets both close to home and around the world, across multiple platforms in traditional and online media, as well as direct experience in policy, advocacy, news, fundraising, communications, federal, state and local government, and nonprofit organizations.
West End Strategy Team occupies a custom-built six-room suite, constructed to encourage collaboration and creativity among his staff. The team also relies on the business center’s amenities (conference rooms, kitchens, break rooms, professional reception service, etc.) for support and infrastructure.
As a communications firm, it was also important for Matt Dorf to maintain his company’s own identity in AdvantEdge’s shared office environment. Between the private suite’s 11-foot high ceilings, glass doors, custom carpets, hand-picked furnishings, and prominently displayed company logo, West End Strategy Team established their own brand and culture virtually overnight (the construction to customize their suite was completed in one weekend).

Since 2009 Dale Curtis Communications has helped numerous businesses and organizations by providing comprehensive public relations solutions. With a growing staff and an ever-growing list of high-caliber clients, AdvantEdge has worked with Founder Dale Curtis to bring DCC out of Dale’s home office and help maximize his firm’s professional presence. Dale opened the firm’s first private office in the spring of 2012 with just two employees, and in the time since, he has grown to a staff of five with the aid of the extensive amenities and services offered at our West End location.
When discussing how moving to AdvantEdge provided immediate benefits with his clients, Dale offered, “I’m proud to have a 'big' looking office for my small business, and I think our clients are very impressed when they visit. The staff always goes above and beyond to help us with anything we need.”
As a communications firm that knows how to throw a fabulous party, Dale Curtis Communications sees AdvantEdge as more than just an everyday office. Flexible spaces ready-made for hosting events and staff available to assist were crucial in helping Dale make the perfect impression on his clients. “AdvantEdge has always been very hospitable about our client receptions,” he says.
Not every small business has resources like event space and administrative support available on demand, so being in a shared space is the perfect environment for a firm looking to branch out on its own. Dale had plenty to say about how effective he has been in his office at AdvantEdge, “I appreciate being able to get secretarial and IT help on short notice. The AdvantEdge receptionists and office staff are friendly, helpful, flexible, and professional. I also love the easy availability of conference rooms and extra space for meetings and client visits.”
Leaving your home office for a more professional setting is a big step for any small business. With flexible spaces, ready to help on-site staff, and a plethora of amenities and services, AdvantEdge Business Centers can help you transition away from the home office without long-term liability, and give you the tools to help your business flourish.
A public relations and editorial services firm with a proven record of success, Dale Curtis Communications provides full-service support to corporate and nonprofit clients who need help honing their messages and promoting their agendas, especially in Washington, DC, and the federal government sphere.

For more information about Arqiva, their mission, or service offerings, please email email@example.com or call 202-721-8860.
Arqiva, a global brand providing telecommunications and media services to thousands of clients each year, knows how important it is to stay connected. With offices in 5 continents, Advantedge Downtown serves as Arqiva’s branch office in Washington DC providing customized IT options and on site assistance to help them stay on target. With a staff of 6 employees, AdvantEdge has worked with Arqiva to custom design an office suite solution that mirrors similar branch offices around the world. Arqiva opened their first office at AdvantEdge’s Downtown business center in the spring of 2012 and ever since AdvantEdge has provided on demand services and IT infrastructure that has allowed Arqiva to be comfortable and productive in their new space.
When discussing how AdvantEdge Business Centers works not as a separate entity, but as an extension of Arqiva’s own Washington DC team, Pamela Brinkley, Arqiva’s US Finance and Office Administrator, said, “The AdvantEdge team has been a great asset for my company and for me personally. You can always count of them to go the extra mile for you. Especially when I was out of the office for an extended period of time, the front desk staff stayed on top of everything that I had requested during my absence.”
As a telecommunications firm providing services to over 16,000 sites around the world, their DC office is complete with a private conference room and their own copy room, however, if anything goes wrong or they need multiple projects completed at the same time, the AdvantEdge team is there to lend a hand.
Not every business has extra administrative staff assistance on demand, or scalable rack space in the on-site server room. Choosing AdvantEdge provides back up support for businesses to help them stay efficient. When speaking with Project Engineer Keith Barton about how AdvantEdge worked with Arqiva to establish appropriate IT infrastructure, Keith said, “We installed our own IT network, both voice and data, however, storing our equipment in AdvantEdge’s LAN room provides the convenience of interconnecting with the local carriers along with providing the necessary temperature control to keep everything working.”
Branch offices don’t need dozens of employees and redundant operations positions to establish a presence in new cities. With a customized office solution that provides the aesthetic and space plan that matches your company’s identity, and the knowledge that your staff is fully supported by our on-site administrative teams, AdvantEdge Business Centers can help your business expand to the DC region with far greater ease than traditional or sublease space.
We save both time and money by working with AdvantEdge. Their staff is terrific and not having to worry about dealing with secretaries, utilities, etc., allows us to focus on our business instead of administrative issues.
We're delighted and pleased with the efficient and professional service we receive.
I have been a client since 2005 and have been very satisfied with the service that I have received. The staff is helpful and courteous and I am pleased with the professional presentation that I am able to provide to clients.
The management and staff at AdvantEdge Business Centers are awesome! Professional, courteous and efficient, they can help you with all of your business needs including receptionist/phone answering, clerical and notary services! I love working from my virtual office and my clients are impressed with the facility! I can't say enough good things about the people and the office space!
Speaking from years of work experience and renting offices in various cities, states, and countries; this is the first- and only- office space where I feel part of a valued family. Great space, great service, and great community events.
I love working with AdvantEdge Business Centers because I feel at home here. The staff is always available to help me. With at least 2 receptionists at all times there is always someone to take calls and assist with any office needs. I will remain here and hope to grow my office into a larger suite. I highly recommend AdvantEdge Business Centers.
Air Partner has held offices at AdvantEdge Business Centers at 1250 24th Street for over 3 years now and we could not think of a better place! The entire staff are dedicated to every client and truly make the work day better! Their attention to detail goes beyond our expectations and we truly appreciate it!
We love the staff and the office space. AdvantEdge has a great team!
We have been at AdvantEdge for nearly 2 years. Besides the easy turn-key no- worry operations of phones, internet, printing and copies, the real pleasure of being at this site is the staff. Friendly, ALWAYS helpful, they go out of their way to make you feel welcome. And the little (and not so little) touches, bagels on Fridays, a March Madness popcorn party, Mardi Gras King Cake flown in from Louisiana, make clients feel “Appreciated.” We feel lucky to have found this office space.
I have been here for more than 5 years and have been very pleased with my office. The staff, in particular, have always been helpful, courteous, and professional.
The AdvantEdge staff is terrific. They are professional, courteous and responsive, to both me and my guests. They all seem to know what they are doing, and if they don't know the answer to a question, they find out and respond. I am very pleased with the staffing support.
AdvantEdge is by far the best commercial property management company I've interacted with in my 22 years of business. The reception and support staff are exceptional.
I have had a wonderful experience as a client --my customers always remark on how lovely the offices are and how friendly and helpful the staff is. They go above and beyond and my business could not be successful without them.
We’re not clients- we’re family.
Thank you to AdvantEdge for helping make our events so special. I am really touched by all the extra “touches” that the staff puts into the rooms creating the perfect environment for our events. Thank you to all of the staff who helped out. What can I say, AdvantEdge is the Best!
The AdvantEdge team been wonderful to my family and me. I can't thank them enough for their place in all of our lives.
We could not be happier with the space, staff, and services provided. AdvantEdge is top notch!
AdvantEdge has a wonderful and efficient staff and a very beautiful well-kept suite. There is always a cheerful “Good morning” when you come into the suite and it’s a wonderful way to start my day.
As our business continues to grow in this region we rely on having partners who are able to be flexible and agile in accommodating our needs. We’ve been fortunate that the AdvantEdge team can match the speed of our business and they have always made sure our employees have everything they need.
I love the easy availability of conference rooms and extra space for meetings and client visits. The staff is friendly, helpful, flexible, and professional. Plus, the building is very attractive and in a prestigious, convenient location.
