We love our clients and it shows.

Don't just take our word for it, read what a few clients say about working with us:

Randall Dobbs, CEO, Community National Bank

Community National Bank Logo"I have known and worked with Susan Farb Morris since 2002. She was hired as a consultant based on the recommendation of I.W. Marks with IW Marks Jewelers. I have not regretted a minute of our association. She has been instrumental in assisting our bank develop and market programs like Piggy Banks on Parade (a tool to teach young children to save), the child ID kit program where the bank and Bellaire Police Department have finger-printed over 500 children to date (a program designed to assist law enforcement in child abduction cases), an annual blood drive, and the fire prevention week poster contest. She has done a remarkable job getting the name of Community National Bank seen and heard through the local media-television, radio, and print. I am proud of our association and look forward to a long and beneficial relationship. Thanks Susan."

- Randall (Randy) Dobbs, CEO, Community National Bank, Bellaire, TX

Joe Pogge, President, Strike Marketing Group

Pogge Marketing Group Logo"Professionalism, detail, creative, follow-through, relationships and most importantly success would be the most direct adjectives that I can attest to the work description of Susan Farb Public Relations. I had the distinct opportunity to hire Susan for the PR needs of Houston radio station Mix 96.5 fm in the early `90's and recommended her PR services to the Art Colony Association for their PR needs with the Bayou City Art Festivals in 2003 -- both organizations reaped the benefits of her diligent work, media coverage and team effort in creating huge marketing wins. In today's world of clutter, bombarding advertising messages and changing technology, it is refreshing to know that Susan is on my team in delivering a message to the right demographics on time and with a high return of interest for the products/events that we are marketing."

- Joe Pogge, President,  STRIKE Marketing and Past President, Art Colony Association Board of Directors/Bayou City Art Festivals

Wayne C. Meyer, Vice President/General Manager, Firethorne

Firethorne Logo"I have been in the land development and real estate business for 30 years and worked with many of the so-called top PR firms. I can say without reservation that Susan Farb is without question the absolute best! She works with us consistently to do the things we need while minimizing the cost to us and yet getting us exposure in the media frequently."

Lidya Osadchey, CEO, ESCAPE Family Resource Center

ESCAPE Logo"As a nonprofit organization, ESCAPE Family Resource Center is very judicious in its budgeting for PR, marketing and development. Working under a tight time constraint as well, Susan Farb Public Relations rose to the occasion, generating media and public interest in ESCAPE “Dad’s Count” classes as a pre-Father’s Day publicity opportunity via traditional media, social media and SEO optimization. The firm’s PR and optimization efforts generated measurable results in terms of increased awareness for our “Dads Count” and “Building Confident Families” classes. The website activity on our LearnToParent.org website was up by 50 percent over the same time period in 2008. ESCAPE values the firm’s continued counsel; Susan Farb Morris is always on her toes so that we respond to pertinent local and national news stories that help position ESCAPE as parenting experts in the prevention of child abuse and child neglect."

- Lidya Osadchey, CEO, ESCAPE Family Resource Center

Barry Goldware, Chairman & CEO, Sun & Ski Sports

Sun & Ski Sports Logo"We hired Susan Farb Public Relations on a project basis to promote our new e-commerce site, as well as a homeless shelter's warm clothing drive and December holiday product placements. While Sun & Ski Sports previously focused its marketing budget on advertising, we immediately saw the value of the editorial coverage the firm secured for us. SF/PR's very first placement was a home-run -- a full-page color spread about our e-commerce site in the Sunday Houston Chronicle business section. Knowing the value of a full-page in terms of advertising dollars, as well as the Sunday business demographics, I could see the intrinsic value of a story like that. Sun & Ski Sports' PR coverage has been consistent month after month, in print and electronic media, positioning Sun & Ski Sports as the premiere 'go-to' adventure sporting experts that we are. We have been extremely pleased with the Susan Farb Public Relations' results. Susan is outstanding at what she does in addition to being very well connected to the Houston media landscape."

- Barry Goldware, Chairman & CEO, Sun & Ski Sports adventure sporting outfitter (retail and online)

Tom Forrester Lord, President, The Housing Corporation of Greater Houston

Housing Corporation of Greater Houston Logo"We’ve turned to Susan Farb Public Relations over the past 15 years to handle the public relations for groundbreakings and grand openings for our low- to middle income housing developments, both new construction and redevelopment of historic buildings. While we don’t have a big budget, Susan Farb Morris is able to work with us to create high-quality events that are meaningful to our target audiences -- our financial partners (corporate and government agencies and their spokespersons/representatives), our residents and, of course, the media. Whatever the project, Susan is totally hands-on, from developing the event concept and theme, to writing outlines and speeches, to securing media coverage for our non-profit organization. She is a team player who enjoys immersing herself in our work and our cause. Susan’s creativity and enthusiasm and passion for her -- and our -- work carries through to her relationships with the media. She has secured significant media placements for us on local television and radio news, newspaper, including impressive city desk/Metro and editorial page coverage in the Houston Chronicle, and in housing industry trade publications."

- Tom Forrester Lord, President, The Housing Corporation of Greater Houston

Nancy & Randy Bellard, Co-Owners, GarageTek-Houston

GarageTek Logo"Susan Farb PR offers great bang for the buck. When we bought the GarageTek Houston franchise we knew we had to act quickly to educate the public about the garage organizational concept to generate interest and demand for this upscale design product. Susan Farb Public Relations hit the ground running with immediate media and promotions with everything from Holiday Gift Guides to Father’s Day stories, “Houston’s Junkiest Garage” contest and hosting a New Year’s Resolution Get Organized event in our showroom with the National Association of Professional Organizers. The firm was right on target in bringing GarageTek into high-end home tours -- including a model home built in conjunction with the Super Bowl in Houston, as well as orchestrating an ultimate garage tour with the Porsche and Ferrari Clubs of Houston, plus developing a low-cost silent auction charity prize program that generated multiple sales of full-blown garage installations. Susan Farb Morris brought creative, affordable ideas to us that not only gave us high visibility in magazines, newspaper and television, but the firm’s efforts directly benefited our bottom-line sales. GarageTek’s regional sales director asked us if we could clone Susan Farb Public Relations for other franchisees."

Carol Meyer, Owner, Inspiring Movement Gyrotonics (R)

Carol Meyer Logo"I cannot begin to thank you enough for the encouragement you have given to me and the media coverage that has catapulted my business off to a booming beginning. I had no idea that the news release would have such impact! My company, Inspiring Movement, is up and running…almost literally! The day that the article ran in the Ultimate Memorial newspaper I had 29 calls and after that about 20 more. In just three weeks, I have established a client base of 18, many purchasing packages of lessons and joining my group class at Memorial Drive Methodist Church as well. I am still receiving calls and getting emails from the memorial area. I am extremely excited about the upcoming article that will be featured in the October issue of Katy Lifestyles and Homes magazine. This time I will be prepared for a flood of phone calls!
Every day I wake up excited to share this unique methodology knowing with confidence that whoever experiences it will leave feeling better. There is merit and reward in serving those in need, and I am sincerely grateful to have the opportunity that you have made possible. Thank you, my friend!"

- Carol Meyer, Owner, Inspiring Movement Gyrotonics (R)

Lucy H. Chambers, Partner, Bright Sky Press

"At the advice of a long-time friend and former White House press agent, we hired Susan Farb Public Relations to promote a speaking event for one of our authors. We had virtually no lead time, and she was able to generate press all over town and fill the event to over-flowing. We were so impressed with Susan’s creativity,  professionalism and collaborative nature that now we turn to her whenever we have PR needs that surpass our in-house capabilities. She has gotten our authors and books coverage on Fox 26 Television, "Great Day Houston" and local ABC-TV, as well as in innumerable print and electronic journals. In addition to our great satisfaction with her work, the authors who have worked directly with her have secured her services for future projects as well.  Susan’s relationships in the community are grounded in a long-standing trust of her discernment and follow through. It is a joy to work with someone with such an admirable combination of intellect and integrity, and I cannot recommend her more highly."

- Lucy H. Chambers, Partner, Bright Sky Press

Lynda Sanders, President, Marketing Solutions Company, Inc.

"Susan has always exceeded expectations. I hired her on the Sun and Ski Sports brand  and just worked with her on the month long Texas Music Festival at University of Houston.  She cares about the project and does what it takes...reaching out to her varied network and creating reasons for other people to get excited about the product or service.  She is highly creative and will dig for new angles that will pleasantly surprise and delight.  Like securing a local TV ski fashion show segment or dreaming up a facebook conductor contest with people who then promote your project... she keeps it interesting. She is a valued member of the team and has a marketing mind that doesn't quit!"

- Lynda Sanders, President, Marketing Solutions Company, Inc.

Alan Austin, General and Artistic Director, TEXAS MUSIC FESTIVAL

"Like many small arts organizations, the Texas Music Festival international music residency at the University of Houston Moores School of Music depends on our patrons spreading the word about who we are.  And like many arts organizations, money is tight.  The best investment that we have made over the last few years, however, was engaging the services of Susan Farb Public Relations.  Susan is adept at creating and developing "buzz" about whomever she represents, and she draws on her many years in the business and her wide variety of contacts (everyone is her friend!) to get the word out and develop interest for our program in the community.

Through her use of community-wide TV, newspaper, radio, and online publicity, Susan works to build relationships between the mainstream media outlets and reporters and editors outside the norm of classical music coverage, thereby creating new audiences.

Susan is also adept with social media, quickly building a fan base on Facebook and Twitter through contests and unique stories, including our first-ever "Celebrity Conductor" contest. 

Working with Susan is always creative and FUN, and we couldn't afford to have our festival without her!"
