“Margie and her team deliver on their promises. Their impressive contributions over the past 15 years to McShane Communications have ensured our clients receive responsive, professional public relations services.”
Owner, McShane Communications
“Working with Margie and her team at Martin Communications was a great experience. They are always professional, well organized and available at a moment’s notice. Our challenge during a real estate downturn was to create not only confidence in our product (Waters Edge high-rise, luxury condos) but in the real estate market as a whole. Margie’s relationships with the media helped us launch a PR campaign that created awareness and third-party credibility to reassure homebuyers that purchasing real estate during the downturn was a smart move.”
President, Stingray Asset Management
