Maria Chrissovergis and team has helped Artisan Homes tremendously in all areas of our PR and marketing ventures. Along with aiding in design elements of our website, marketing collateral material and visual branding. MCPR has helped us in spreading the true meaning of Artisan Homes to The Florida Times Union, Amelia Island Chamber, Residentnews.net and more to come in 2018.
As one of Northeast Florida’s premier local home builders, we greatly appreciate the assistance and expertise from MC Public Relations and Marketing and look forward all future projects together.

I can say, 110% certainty, that Maria, Jennifer, Anastasia and the rest of the MCPR team are patient, enthusiastic, and knowledgeable. Their guidance helped me take my online and social media marketing to the ‘next level’, and without their help, I can honestly say that I would have been lost. Highly recommended!
Recently I had a competing builder visit one of our models and he loved our magazine. He asked how come they didn’t have something like this and I replied, because they don’t have MC PR & Marketing! Being a boutique custom home builder, it’s necessary to have a team that gives you every essential part of public relations and sometimes on a moment’s notice. I can’t tell you the times I’ve sent a request late one day and find the beautiful results waiting in inbox the following morning. This is the kind of quality service you can expect with MC PR & Marketing. You couldn’t ask for a better agency to partner with.

…Our experience working with MC Public Relations & Marketing has been nothing short of phenomenal. From discussing branding and marketing strategy, to sales training and event coordination, every element of our campaign was handled perfectly, so much so that after going “live” in April, we signed our first three clients before the end of the month. Maria and her team are an essential, integral part of our continued success (sometimes we forget she’s not an actual employee of Aria Homes!), and we are grateful for her keen eye, expertise, and unwavering commitment to our growth and success.

As someone who has an extensive background in marketing and advertising, I am pretty selective when it comes to hiring an agency to represent my listings. MC Public Relations & Marketing is delivering incredible results. People continue to make references to my real estate listings and a lot of the buzz is being generated from my social media marketing which MC Public Relations & Marketing is handling. They have incredible sense of how to market, where to market and what to market. And the results show, this team is exceptional!

It has been a pleasure working with Maria and her marketing team over the past few years. The MC Public Relations & Marketing team of highly motivated and talented staff have created some of the most productive and successful digital and print media for our projects that I have experienced in years.

Maria and her team’s combined knowledge and experience in real estate public relations, marketing and sales puts them in a unique position as a PR and Marketing agency.
