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!).
EXECUTIVE VICE PRESIDENT, PŪRWELL
We have relied on Durée & Company to assist us in our marketing and public relations efforts as we launched our brand. Knowing this first year can be a critical time, Durée and her team have helped unearth opportunities in this competitive space and have landed us coverage in local and national publications. Her team works diligently to address our needs and offer solutions for increased brand exposure. This partnership has been beneficial to our company and we would recommend her services to anyone looking for a solid PR strategy that makes an impact. Thank you, Durée & Company!
Shareholder & Attorney, Bryant Miller Olive P.A.
I resisted the whole idea of engaging a public relations firm for our law firm. I didn’t think we needed it and it just didn’t feel right. Within weeks, Durée & Company showed me how wrong I was. They invested a lot of up-front time getting to know us and tailored their services to our sensitivities and needs. At the same time, we learned from them how we could benefit from public relations services in ways we never imagined and with which we were totally comfortable. Durée & Company has found opportunities for us we never would have known about without them. They have enhanced our practices and provided experienced, solid advice. They have been there for us days, nights, and weekends. With Durée & Company, we made a wise investment. We also made good friends.
MARKETING MANAGER, COOPER’S HAWK WINERY
Working with Durée & Company has been a remarkable experience. I cannot stress enough how much we value and appreciate Durée and her team’s efforts in our newest restaurant opening. We seek to partner with a local PR firm that are experts in the market, well connected in the community, and have the experience necessary to react quickly to rapidly changing trends – and the team not only brought these qualities, but an enormous energy, detail, and innovation to every project. They were able to help increase our media exposure significantly in the South Florida market, and effectively get us published in a variety of news outlets. In addition to their professionalism, they are just plain fun to work with and we’ve had an extremely successful opening of our newest winery & restaurant!
VICE PRESIDENT OF BUSINESS DEVELOPMENT, VERITAS FARMS
Durée & Company has become our trusted PR partner and has been a proactive advocate for not only our company, but for the industry. The team at Durée & Company always has our best interest in mind and works proactively to secure opportunities for Veritas Farms on a local and national level. We have put forth a number of business objectives that have been met through a myriad of media opportunities. A recent win on a national business network was truly impactful for our company and reflected in our bottom line. We thank Durée and her team for their concerted efforts and for always being available when we need them.
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.
FOUNDER, MLE LAW
Smart, aggressive, dynamic and everything in between, Durée and her team are my number 1 asset! They’ve provided more meaningful exposure for me in 6 months than I’ve achieved in 16 years. In short, they’re worth every penny and then some! Oh, and they’re just plain good people. For me, there’s no better in the business!
President, Marker Construction Group
Durée & Company has been instrumental in getting us extensive press and exposure, not just as a company but as individuals. We have received press in a number of leading publications, including the Miami Herald, Forbes and FOX Business. Durée & Company has also helped us achieve notable awards, including the South Florida Business Journal’s 50 Fastest Growing Companies and Influential Business Women of the year. We are so appreciative of their efforts and the results they have achieved for us in a short amount of time.
Ballon Development Consulting
Durée & Company’s commitment to excellence, creativity and out-of-the-box approach has set a new benchmark in providing results-oriented campaigns for any industry. With over two decades in pre-construction luxury developments, I understand the importance of engaging the right PR firm to create outstanding media opportunities in this very competitive space. Durée & Company exceeded my expectations when the firm was engaged to be the exclusive PR firm for both Hemisphere Sales Group and our client, Sabbia Beach. Securing two magazine cover opportunities in less than a week and creating newsworthy stories, Durée & Company successfully created a media campaign that put Pompano Beach on the map. President Durée Ross’ innate ability to manage any challenge, and the personal interest she takes with all of her clients, go above and beyond public relations. I regard Durée & Company as the best of the best, and highly recommend Durée and her team to achieve success for any project or company.
Executive Director, Parkinson’s Foundation
On behalf of the Parkinson’s Foundation we would again like to Thank You for helping to make this event outstanding. Your attention to detail and the support to our foundation is very appreciated and not only helps us raise money for research and hopefully a cure in the near future but enables us to provide the local Parkinson’s community with the finest wellness, support and educational programs. Thank you again for helping us make a difference.

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.
Beatriz “Bibi” Lucki
CHIEF MARKETING & COMMUNICATIONS OFFICER, SAPOZNIK
Selecting the right PR agency was a critical component for our 30th anniversary milestone year. We needed guidance regarding the overall plan for the year. Durée & Company was able to develop the strategy and execution to effectively communicate and promote our 30th anniversary. They are a very dedicated, hardworking team of professionals that were committed to our success. Knowing that they were as passionate as we were about our efforts, made Durée and her team a very valuable asset to our company.
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.
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 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.
THE HOPKINS TEAM
Durée & Company has helped my team and me immensely. They are a full service marketing and PR firm that goes above and beyond to help their clients reach new levels. I am proud to say they are part of my real estate team and they have my best interest at heart. I highly recommend using their PR Agency and give them 5 stars.
