Testimonials

  • …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. I am most appreciative of the team’s complete understanding of the real estate business including, both the new homes and existing home sales and marketing. 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.

    We are thankful for their creative ideas and most of all for the success we have experienced on our projects. We look forward to a continuing relationship as we bring new projects to the market.

  • We had tried two previous marketing/PR firms while trying to gain traction with our two new home projects.

    One was a high end Ponte Vedra Beach new home community and the other was an exclusive Waterfront Home project. In short order Maria and her team identified the task, recommended a unique and different strategy then what we had tried before.

    The stand alone websites for each community were eye catching and easy to navigate. The traffic her team had visiting our websites was nothing short of phenomenal. Their ability to review the sources of the traffic and best strategies to generate more traffic from their weekly analytics meetings was nothing short of brilliant.

    One quick story that more than paid for all of her services was the advertorial she wrote for us and was printed in the Florida Times Union. It was a Grand Opening story for the last phase of our waterfront community. One of our buyers literally walked in with the article in hand and bought one of our $1M by the end of that weekend. True story and one I retell anytime someone asks if her services are worth the investment.

    Do yourself a favor and at least interview her and research how she can make you more money than the way you are currently approaching your marketing.

    Maria and her team made it so easy. Call her today!
