      Client Testimonial

      Margaret Rose | Owner 

      Neuse Realty, New Bern, NC

      June 2016 - September 2017

      Latisha Grady is a focused and dedicated problem solver. We are particularly appreciative of her success in solving a technical interface issue between our website and new regional MLS software in the summer of 2016. She remained upbeat and undeterred until all of it worked correctly...we were in awe.

      Client Testimonial

      Laraine Mark| Owner 

      Mark Realty Group, New Bern, NC

      July 2016 - September 2016

      I learned about Latisha after she gave a digital marketing presentation at my real estate office. My experience with Latisha has been exceptional from beginning to end. From her setting up my site, to creating social media accounts. Latisha is very strategic. Her efforts introduced me to a local area blog and now I'm a regular real estate contributor for that site. I did not expect this as part of her services. She consistently exceeded my expectations.

      Client Testimonial

      Crystal Nichole

      Crystal Nichole Styles, Raleigh, NC

      December 2016 - February 2017

      Working with Tisha by far exceeded my expectations. After working with a few other content writers and strategists - being referred to Tisha was a Godsend. Tisha was the first and only strategist that didn't present me with some templatized questionnaire to complete about business vision, etc. I mean, if you are having difficulty articulating yourself in writing, then why send a client a form asking them to write? Tisha ACTUALLY got on the phone with me and heard my passion. She listened to the words I was not saying! She was able to capture perfectly my voice and produced a bio and service page that were clear, concise, and authentic as well as did some tweaking to my landing page. All I can say is, SHE GETS IT!
