Tremendous Success


“I really like the fact that this is not a big firm…you get more personalized attention. Sarah has a great insight into the real estate industry and this has contributed to our tremendous success with public relations. It has paid off tremendously.”
~ Darin Marques, Former Sales Consultant at Ascaya

Stand Out From the Crowd

“In this day and age, public relations is a necessity, especially for a new business.  When John and I started our law firm in July 2014, we knew we needed a public relations person who could help us stand out from the crowd.  Sarah has done that and more.  Through the past year and a half, Sarah has assisted us immensely in highlighting our strengths, legal experience, and those attributes that distinguish us from other local attorneys.  She is readily available and enthusiastic about the projects at hand – whether it be finding us the right “fit” in community organizations or giving last minute feedback on proposed advertising.”
