Feature Story with Returning Client, Amir Ali

This month, Intelligent Office of Alexandria is pleased to introduced our returning client, Amir Ali, who is an insurance consulting executive and owner of The Insurance Samurai. With decades of experience in insurance consulting, we are excited to share Amir’s story of how he got started in the insurance industry, what he enjoys most about what he does, our client relationship, and how he uses his expertise to serve the community.

As an insurance consultant, Amir specializes in corporate insurance, commercial property, and casualty insurance, and employee benefits. He got his start in the health insurance division of New Your Life in 1995. He then went on to work for an insurance brokerage firm; and January 2002, Amir started his own firm.

One of the things Amir enjoys most about insurance is the ability to help small business owners protect their businesses and their financial stability. Without insurance, many companies would not be able to provide their services, especially if they are doing business with municipalities. “Being able to provide that level of assistance is a great feeling,” says Amir.

At Intelligent Office of Alexandria, we also feel good when our clients are successful. According to Amir, the ease of doing business with us is what he enjoys most about being a client. As a former virtual address client, Amir left the area back in 2013. When he returned and started a new firm, Amir reached out to us; and we immediately got him set up again with our virtual address service. Amir chose to use our services again because he prefers talking to and knowing the people with whom he does business. “Having someone local to talk to and deal with is much easier!”

As a way of giving back to his local community, Amir speaks at financial seminars and sits on local panels for the DC Mayor’s Office of African American Affairs, conveying the power of life insurance and how detrimental it can be if you do not have it.

IO Alexandria Story Featuring Corey Tisdale, Owner of Tisdale Law Firm

Corey Tisdale is the owner of Tisdale Law Firm, a boutique family law and criminal practice based here in our Intelligent Office Alexandria office space. We sat down with Corey to learn more about his law firm, his approach to the practice of the law, and how Intelligent Office Alexandria has supported the growth and operations of his business.

The Tisdale Law Firm focuses primarily on family law, including divorce, abuse, child custody, and support disputes; while also handling abuse and neglect and guardianship cases for the City of Alexandria. Additionally, Corey has a passion for adoption and surrogacy. He views it as a special area of law in which he can help create positive outcomes by building families and placing children in loving homes.

In his family law practice, Corey thinks of himself as the person to bring focus back to the reasons why his clients are going to court. His goal is to help his clients make sense of what is best for them in the long term, especially when children are involved. He provides guidance and perspective to the situation, relieving stress along the way. Ultimately, Corey is focused on a holistic and mindful practice of the law. Given the nature of family law, the Tisdale Law Firm seeks to provide comfort and help to clients during a very difficult time.  

Formerly a Judge Advocacy General attorney for the U.S. Army, Corey decided he wanted to create his own business. Starting a business can be an overwhelming venture. However, working with Intelligent Office Alexandria has allowed him to grow his legal practice at his own pace. At first, all he needed was an address and hourly office space; but as his business grew, Corey realized that it would be more cost effective to have his own office.  This allowed him to grow into his space because he did not have to take on any debt and his expenses were not higher than what he could afford. Most recently, Corey added on our phone services. He can be on a call with another client or in court and his calls will be answered. Hearing a human voice and having a receptionist to alleviate stress for his clients is invaluable. Plus, having his own office space and someone to answer his calls allows him to mimic that of a large firm.

During COVID and this time of social distancing, Corey has enjoyed coming to his office, seeing the smiling faces of our staff, and interacting with others on a daily basis. Being in the office has also allowed Corey to find new business opportunities, grow his personal wealth, and talk with other professionals whom he would not have met otherwise. On a personal note, Corey is addicted to Peloton and enjoys riding every morning before he starts his day.

Meet Our Client: Next|Move Nation's Capital

Throughout the pandemic, Intelligent Office Alexandria has remained steadfast in our services and commitment to our clients. Now more than ever, we stand by our clients and their business needs. A good example of our commitment to providing stellar client-focused virtual services is our recent relationship with Next Move|Nation’s Capital. We met with Jared Lilly, a licensed Real Estate professional and a partner at Next Move|Nation’s Capital, to learn more about the company, how he got started with them, and what he enjoys most about working with Intelligent Office Alexandria. Here’s what we learned:

Licensed in 2011, Jared Lilly is a native to Northern Virginia who moved to Keller Williams Capital Properties as an independent agent. After three years with a small team, he decided to partner with Jordan Stuart, owner of The Next Move Network, a network of real estate professionals catering to the sports and entertainment industry, to create a local footprint for clients here in the Metro DC area. They formed Next Move|Nation’s Capital, which serves as a blueprint for several new franchises, including locations in Denver, CO – Next Move Mile High, and the beginnings of Next Move Peachtree in Atlanta, GA. Next Move|Nation’s Capital’s mission is to assist people in buying and selling real estate. Serving all clients across the board, they sold a listing for $5.6 Million and just this month, they closed on a piece of land in Stafford for $85,000.

Although these two listings were on opposite ends of the spectrum, Jared and the Next Move|Nation’s Capital team are always focused on taking care of people and their real estate needs. They have two agents who are licensed in VA, MD, and DC, and two agents licensed in VA and MD, respectively. They operate across the entire residential real estate spectrum, helping with all types of transactions. In 2019, the company did over $40 million in sales, which accounts for just under 100 properties and rentals. This year, Next Move|Nation’s Capital is expected to surpass $50 million in sales.

When Jared came to us, we knew we could help Next Move|Nation’s Capital build their identity and provide the type of customer care that they needed for their clients.  As a former tenant in a different office space, Jared valued our phone system as the biggest catalyst in his decision to switch to Intelligent Office Alexandria. Next Move|Nation’s Capital operates at all hours of the day and it was important for clients to be able to reach them or to leave a message. Our receptionist services have become invaluable to the nature of their business.

As a team, Next Move|Nation’s Capital is focused on giving back to the community, hosting toy drives to benefit Children’s Hospital, and visits with Santa at Mount Vernon RECenter during the holidays! On a personal level, Jared and his family spend their free time attending NATS baseball games, sponsoring local Little League, and remaining active together. Intelligent Office Alexandria is happy to support Next Move Nation’s Capital’s commitment to their clients and to their local community. Who do you know that is thinking of selling this year? Give them a call!
