Testimonials

It can be a good thing when people are talking about you. Really. In PR, it’s great. Just see what our clients have to say about Durée & Company. (Aw shucks, we’re blushing!)

John R. D’Eri

CEO and Co-Founder, Rising Tide Car Wash

“Over my 25 years of being a successful entrepreneur, I never hired a public relations firm. Based on my recent experience with Durée & Company, that was a mistake. When I created the social enterprise Rising Tide Car Wash in 2013, I made a clear decision not to use conventional advertising to power it, but rather to engage earned media to drive consumer awareness. In order to build this high profile, we needed top-notch PR talent. That’s what we got with Durée & Company. A good PR company gets you press, but a great PR company like Durée & Company teaches you how to handle it, and guides you through the process to get the best results. Durée takes a great interest in the success of our business. She is a fully integrated part of our management team, and there for us 24/7. This extra effort translates into exceptional results. Her intimate knowledge of our goals and strategies enables us to get the very best results from earned media and community outreach.”

Jacob D. Steiger, M.D.

Facial Plastic Surgeon, Steiger Facial Plastic Surgery

“I have been working with Durée for close to a decade. She is thorough, responsive and extremely effective. Through the continuous growth of my practice, including the launch of my 5,000-square-foot facial plastic surgery and aesthetic medical center, she has always provided my practice with unparalleled PR and marketing services. Durée & Company is an exceptional boutique PR firm that sees the entire picture, and knows how to achieve spectacular media coverage for its clients.”

Eris Thomas

MBA, CEO, Coral Gables Executive Physicians

“Working with Durée & Company is a pleasure. The team is extremely adept at providing our concierge medical practice with media coverage where we need it, and when we need it. The Durée & Company team is very professional, results-driven, and there for us 24/7.”

Arianne Glassman

President, rAv Communications

“Although having known Durée and her company’s business reputation for some years now, I recently had the opportunity to hire her firm to assist with PR and promotion throughout the launch of a client’s new restaurant. The D&C team is not only professional and skilled – with a real pulse on what interests media and news makers – but share an enthusiasm and personal interest in their success and delivering an “on brand” message. They have a high degree of integrity, are open and honest, and proven time and again to be a valued member of our team.”

Bryan W. Knicely

Executive Director, Coral Springs Museum of Art

“It has been a wonderful experience working with Durée & Company. Their team has been essential in focusing our advertising and marketing efforts from a more historically random approach to a streamlined process, which has opened many new media venues and coverage for the Museum. The Durée & Company team have an extensive skill-set, and they have been able to assist our internal team in ways we hadn’t even thought about. Their creativity and expertise have helped us to raise the bar and push the envelope in ways that assisted our staff without creating additional work. Excellent job!

Michael J. Pike, Esq.

Pike & Lustig – Turnpike Law

“I have known Durée for over 20 years.  As a legal professional, we are always in need of fresh public relations and marketing ideas that reach our client base.  Durée & Company has always been there, day and night, for our law firm in an effort to expose our client base with up-to-date news on our cases.  Rarely do I find someone awake and working during the hours I work.  However, Duree has been there by our side catering to our after-hours business requests.”

Nicole Roope, Senior Director of Marketing

BRAVO | BRIO Restaurant Group

“I have had the pleasure of working with Durée & Company since 2008. They have proven themselves to be an integral part of our day-to-day activities even though they are in South Florida and we are based in Columbus, Ohio. That said, they are tremendous communicators, diligent, organized and a priceless asset to our company. True business partners in every sense of the word, we see the positive impact they bring to our restaurants located in Florida through the positive media attention, PR and event opportunities presented to us and the follow through on making sure everything we do is promoted to the fullest. I can’t thank Durée and her team enough for all they have done and continue to do for us. They are great ambassadors for our brands!”

Andrew J. Garnett, President/CEO

Special Needs Group/Special Needs at Sea

“Prior to working with Durée & Company, we would spend money on magazine ads. We really did not see a return on our investment. Choosing to redirect our budget towards the PR services provided by Durée & Company was the best marketing decision we have ever made. Durée’s company has gotten us the television, newspaper, magazine, and local organization exposure we had yearned for. We feel that the money spent on Durée & Company’s services has given us an exponential return on our brand recognition. Money well spent.”

Alex Rodriguez-Roig, President

Boys & Girls Clubs of Miami-Dade

“Durée & Company are true professionals. They have great knowledge of the PR world and always have great ideas on how to make it work for their clients.”

Barbara Schechter, Executive Director

Heart Gallery of Broward County

“Durée & Company has done more in three months to raise awareness of foster care adoption than the Heart Gallery of Broward has been able to do on its own in five years. The mission of the Heart Gallery is to let people know that there are foster children living in our county who need adoptive families. Durée started working with us just in time to cover our 100th adoption. The media coverage that this story received was beyond what we could have hoped for. Not only was our coverage in-depth and high-visibility, the sheer volume was greater than all of our cumulative efforts since our founding in 2007. Durée has given us great insight about how to position our message to impact all audiences. She has also stayed on top or even ahead of every potential accomplishment or event that we have done and brought them to the attention of the community. She has so many good ideas that it’s often hard to keep up with her!”

Carmen Ackerman, Project Manager

Riverwalk A&E District

“I have had the great privilege to work with Durée & Company for more than two years. Every single member of this firm is bright, engaging, creative and committed to exceeding their client’s expectations. Having been myself in the field of public relations and marketing for nearly 30 years, and working at several agencies throughout that time, I am well versed in what characteristics separate one agency from the next. I am pleased to share that Durée Ross and her team have a superior work ethic and complete understanding of the media and how to best leverage those relationships to deliver their clients maximum results. There is never a time that I, or any member of my team at the Riverwalk A&E District, make a request of the agency and are met with anything other than a positive, can-do attitude. The agency has delivered results for me at every turn and their enthusiasm toward helping me promote our cultural destination is exhilarating. Durée Ross and her team of professionals are among the finest in our industry. I look forward to having the pleasure of working with this amazing group for many years to come.”

Frances Herrera

Frances Herrera Interior Design

“Durée Ross and her team deliver! Having used her services for my Interior Design business, she has set a new bar for what I consider service excellence. The amount of exposure she creates for my business which moved from New York City far exceeded my expectations. She definitely means what she stands for which is “under promising and always over delivering!” Not only is she professional and creative, but also caring and a pleasure to work with.”
