I love coworking.
I was recently leaving the location in Brooklyn, New York.
It was December 31, 2022 at about 2 AM.
I wanted to quickly mention something.
It’s not a big deal.
I just want to cover myself.
I always treat everyone at the coworking with the utmost respect at all times no matter what. That includings staff, building staff, etc.
When I was leaving tonight the front door to the building was locked like it always is late at night.
I looked over at the door person and he said and motioned for me to unlock the door and let myself out.
I didn’t really feel comfortable unlocking the front door, but of course I wasn’t going to make a big deal out of it so I said thank you, have a great night, and I let myself out.
I’m a New York State licensed real estate broker.
I’m 46 years old.
I’ve been in real estate for twenty years.
I would never touch the lock on the front door of a building unless I was instructed to by the building staff.
I’m just thinking in terms of someone from the management seeing a security video of a person unlocking the front door from the inside.
If the doorman wasn’t there it would be a security hazard.
Additionally, if someone unlocked the front door of the building from the inside without the door person’s instructions that would be disrespectful and of course I would never do it.
In addition to being a polite and respectful person in general, I look at things through a real estate lens.
I might lease out a floor in the building to a client one day or something like that.
I would never burn any bridges with any landords or management companies in New York or anywhere for that matter.
Just wanted to mention it.
I love the location in Brooklyn, it’s one of my favorite.
Thank you and have a great day. .
