Recently, I teased about a very big announcement, and I won’t keep you in suspense any longer. Many of you already know that we have spent this year “remaking” TKA. We’ve hired new talent—agent Nephele Tempest, who runs out west coast operation; Samantha Jenkins, our office manager and bookkeeper; Julie Ramsey, our Marketing Manager; and Elaine Spencer, who is coordinating our submissions department. All of these talented women have taken our agency to a record high in sales for 2005, and have helped streamline our entire operation.

Now, it’s time for even bigger news: Today I write you from my desk in our brand new office space! TKA has acquired a beautifully restored Craftsman bungalow, and our entire east coast team moved in over the weekend. As I glance around I see a perfectly appointed space filled with mission-style furniture, as well as beautiful rugs and antique bookshelves. So, at last, we finally have a perfect work space to take our agency team—and the clients we represent—to the next level of greatness!

We plan to take some photos this week so we can share a peek at our new agency home. We’re all very proud that we’ll be caretakers of such a fine historic property, and of course we anticipate nonstop inspiration, too.

Thanks and onward!

Congratulations to all of you. I love the Craftsman style.

Does Nephele get lonely out in L.A.?

Enjoy your new space, Deidre. You deserve it!
