A traveling executive businessperson has few options for temporary accommodations, most often staying in hotels, extended stay suites or furnished apartments with short-term leases. While convenient, these options rarely come with up-to-date furnishings or paid utilities. Staying in a hotel also can isolate the executive from family and colleagues, and force them to order fast food takeout or from a limited room service menu. So then, imagine a beautifully designed condominium with high-end appliances, a cleaning service, a health club membership and included utilities – it’s a dream come true for the executive.

Tim Smith, president and CEO of Abundant Executive Living, found himself traveling for work as the region president for Verizon years ago and wanted to create a unique living option for someone like himself. “Working on an executive living project made sense for me since I had lots of experience with it,” says Smith. “My wife and I design these units as though we live in them ourselves, because one of the things I want executives to feel as they walk through the door is that it feels like home. We provide high-quality appliances, tasteful furniture and various amenities that differ from typical executive living.”

Abundant Executive Living strives to deliver a condominium for each client that upholds the standard of living for executives. Upon entering each unit, executives will find a flat-screen television, high-quality furniture, new flooring and fresh paint on the walls. “We set up the dining and kitchen area to be accommodating for both working and entertaining,” says Smith. “We use high-end, stainless steel appliances and other amenities to meet the needs and wants of not only the executive, but for visiting family as well. We want people to feel like they want to stay here and take their time finding a home or longer-term living option.”

The company provides condos in the areas of Fort Wayne that make people feel safe, and allow them to have a sense of privacy. “We try to go the extra mile to make people feel cared for and truly at home,” says Smith. “We think about the little details and if I would actually want to stay here, making adjustments along the way until it is just right for each executive.”

Abundant Executive Living strives to offer exceptional temporary housing to its clients. It offers six-, 12- and 36-month lease terms that range in cost from $2,200-$2,600 per month. Smith says he is considering a possible concierge service for dry cleaning and meal delivery at some point, and also wants executives to be able to network with other business people in Fort Wayne. With six available units, Abundant Executive Living is sure to grow, and may have an opportunity to create multiple units in one concentrated community. “My vision is a global vision,” says Smith. “I want people to be able to find an AEL property in all major cities. My plan for Fort Wayne is to have 15-20 units, then move to other cities like Indianapolis, Cincinnati and Cleveland.”

“AEL is a unique alternative for the business executive,” says Smith. “I think people will be pleased at what we offer to our clients.”
