Why – Testimonials

The vibe is that serious work is getting done, but it’s not stuffy or boring — to the contrary, the people are relaxed, fun to be around, members regularly get together, and bring in food or snacks to share, contributing to the “Collective” vibe that is central to the philosophy of the place; a “family” feel to the whole thing. It’s a professional, easy, friendly, relaxed place to work in. Collective Agency has contributed tremendously to my daily enjoyment as I go about my work. Highly recommended!

What sets Collective Agency apart from other coworking places are its members — some of the most genuine, open, and passionate individuals I have ever met — and the culture. We are real and a bit awkward. If I see you I will insist you join me for a beer on Fridays, unless you really don’t want to, that’s cool too.

The best thing is the community. I always felt welcome, and having friendly people around me definitely increased my productivity.

Here’s why this place is unmatched: People here will make an effort to get to know you better and there’s a culture of socialization that you won’t find anywhere else. This place gives you the most “bang for your buck” in terms of what the basic membership includes. Specifically, there are all kinds of items for sharing such as computer monitors, cords and headsets that I haven’t seen anywhere else.

Collective Agency has been a wonderful resource for me in the 3 years I’ve been working there. I’ve benefited from the community where everyone feels welcomed and empowered. I joined because I needed a place to really buckle down and get work done. I’ve stayed because it feels good to be there, I enjoy seeing the other co-workers and meeting new people, and because I still get more work done there than anywhere else.

I love it. The membership benefits are great, but most of all the community is awesome. The opportunities for socialization make Collective Agency stand out from other co-working spaces.
