A few years ago I knew I needed a public relations company for my personal brand, for my company brand and for my food truck business. Who do you trust with curating, expanding and caretaking something like that? I have dealt with hundreds of flacks and media moguls over the years and had always been impressed with Rebecca Brooks whenever I had the opportunity to work with her. After a year-long search and interview process we handed every aspect of our PR business over to The Brooks Group. Smartest decision I have made in years. They are hands-on, always available, connected, smart, aggressive in the best sense of the word and a delight to work with. They have elevated my brands exposure, reputation and value? and the entire team at Brooks have become invaluable day to day working members of my organization.

"I liken The Brooks Group team to Charlie's Angels. They're a dynamic group of women who can go a million miles an hour, have real conversations, get the job done and offer a personalized approach to PR."
--Chef, Television dynamo, Author
Rebecca Brooks and her team are like family. When the Brookettes make a call to media, media answers because they're genuine and sincerely passionate about the brands they represent. Their personalized, human approach to PR is what makes them the best in the business. All in all, they're Bitchin'!

Up until I started working with Rebecca and the Brookettes, only my mother and wife would talk about me with such passion! Before I knew it, these ladies knew more than most people about chocolates, my industry and my brand. I don?t see myself succeeding without the PR savvy of Rebecca and the Brookettes. They are a dedicated group that work diligently and are persistent with a dash of charm, a sprinkle of grace, a pinch of finesse, a bushel of good humor and when you mix all these qualities, your result is complete success. Merci Rebecca and the Brookettes, now lets go fishing!

I entered into my relationship with BG as a true skeptic and cynic. It took perhaps 2 weeks for me to have mind totally changed with the outstanding work BG did. They were efficient, strategic, aggressive, productive, professional and effective, and did it all with the most pleasant attitude/personality ever!I cannot say enough about BG; I recommend them without hesitation or reservation. LOVE!

The Brooks Group is a PR powerhouse! I?ve owned multiple businesses and have never encountered a company that does everything they say?and more. We hired The Brooks Group at a critical point in my career. I was at the point where it could take off, or possibly fade into the mass of other TV personalities. They instantly put me everywhere I needed to be, including The Dr. Oz show Martha Stewart Radio, multiple nationally syndicated TV appearances, and all the right online sites. It is easy to say, "I can't afford PR," but truth is if you want to succeed, you need to be top of mind to the public. I?ve learned that I can't afford not to have PR, but it needs to be the right company. That company is The Brooks Group. Every employee takes ownership of their client?s brand. They are hard-working, creative and tenacious. Call me any time for more details.

Rebecca Brooks and her eponymous super-squadron of amazingly talented, passionate, driven, and nurturing Brookettes are an incredible team! I feel enormously fortunate and grateful that they craft the powerful foundation of the face of PR for my brand. The Brookettes have a comprehensive, unprecedented understanding of PR that transcends traditional media - this is a dedicated corps of experts and innovators with the extraordinary knowledge to lay a roadmap for strategic success sustained by invaluable placements on the forefront of news, business, entertainment, lifestyle, communications, social networking, and more. Plus, the level of professionalism and commitment that they offer clients (I can attest to this wholeheartedly!) is a rare gift in this industry. Thank you so much Rebecca and the Brookettes!
--Actor, Teen Chef
The Brookettes understand Hospitality! It's very refreshing, being a restaurant guy all these years, when you come across people who really get it. Rebecca has strategically positioned me as the face of my families company and in no time they've had me flying all around the country for press opportunities. I have worked with other PR companies and what Brooks delivers far surpasses anything I've experienced. Most importantly we have fun together, get the job done and laugh...a lot. I see a long future ahead, unless they fire me, because I am here to stay.

I opened Pip's Place The Gluten Free Cakery in May, 2012. The Brooks Group strongly contributed to Pip's serving 10,000 customers in only 9 weeks. Rebecca and her team were hard at work before our doors opened and haven't quit since. The innovative ideas and broad spectrum of publicity have been amazing. The entire team is warm, caring and encouraging. They walked through events with me providing encouragement and support. Each idea or initiated program was followed through to the very end. In a few short months The Brooks Group had Pip's publicized in top papers, blogs, magazines and TV. Rebecca is a strong leader with a tremendous team who get great results.
--The Gluten Free Cakery
I love my Rebecca Brooks and her awesome Brookettes! Rebecca is not only a cool chick to be with, but a super professional, go-getting, make-it-happen Superwoman. She listens, cares, gives and supports and the Delicious Ladies she has working with her follow right in her footsteps! This agency is truly present, gets results, and really understands me and my brand. They are smart and fierce PR. I am thrilled with them and their awesome work and look forward to a long and happy marriage!
Over the years, I have worked with several publicists which left me with a less than favorable view about PR people. Since hiring The Brooks Group, my whole outlook has changed. They truly are a gift from the PR gods. They are super professional, deliver results and extremely passionate about their clients careers. I am so happy to have them on my team and every morning I look forward to seeing what they have cooked up for the day!”
--Chef, Television Personality, Author, Entrepreneur
I had expectations of what publicity could do for me and The Brooks Group exceeded all of them. Most of all it was the personal and caring nature of the entire team that make all our projects together exciting and enjoyable.
--Television host, Travel Channel
Anyone that knows me knows that I love PR/Marketing and am pretty darn good at it. I would never work with a team who wasn't an "A" player. It is my sincere honor to be working with such a hard working team and family at the Brooks Group. It took me 7 months and 15 interviews to find the perfect place to do my PR and I can say The Brooks Group is "HOME."
Wine Library TV
"Rebecca and her team get the job done: When I thumb through magazines at the hairdresser and doctors office, I get scared because I see myself "everywhere". I would have to say my PR is too good -- I even get stopped in toilets!
The agency is filled with people you actually want to talk to and get calls from. I think that's the advantage -- there are no caricature "PR Vipers" at Brooks Group. Rebecca has become so much a part of the family, she came to my wedding -- in Italy, where "family" means family!"

"We are happy to recommend publicity firm The Brooks Group. Rachael Ray and I are co-workers of Watch Entertainment, Inc. and have known Rebecca Brooks for more than three years.

The Brooks Group was an integral part of an effective publicity campaign which helped elevate the success of Rachael and Watch’s endeavors.
Rebecca is smart, dynamic, honest and someone who takes charge of any problem and solves it. These qualities, along with her great personal and professional integrity, have allowed Rebecca to enjoy a successful career and long-lasting client relationships.

The style, professionalism and delivery of Rebecca and her team is unbelievably impressive. I have worked with many large and small PR agencies over the years and by far have never seen this level of execution and effective delivery and placement."

Every great recipe has a secret ingredient and that?s what the The Brooks Group is for weelicious.

It's rare to find a public relations agency that not only truly cares about their clients, but is so dedicated to meeting their PR needs as well. The Brooks Group and I share the same philosophy towards our PR goals: quality beats quantity and their quality of work can't be beat.
--Environmental Lifestyle Expert
"When I hired the Brooks Group I didn't have the exposure or name identity that I currently do. They worked well with my team to hone my brand identity and developed an impressive and professional press kit. With their guidance I was able to bring all the entities of my business together. They've consistently booked me on major morning, news and talk shows, as well as on covers of magazines. It's been a successful partnership, and I highly recommend Brooks Group to anyone in my position."

They¹ve gained recognition for my team locally and nationally through their excellent industry contacts. Beyond that, they are all just good people and I enjoy working with them on every level."
"It has been a pleasure working with the brilliant team at The Brooks Group for my book, Forget the Facelift. Everyone was incredibly attentive, as if I was the only client. I also appreciated the meetings, emails and calls with ideas for magazines/TV, and regular reports on all our progress, and we did make a lot of progress. I really appreciate all the help and I look forward to working with Brooks Group again in the near future."
"I was looking for PR who understood my needs as an individual and my more importantly my career aspirations as a makeup artist. Becoming a part of The Brooks Group is one of the best career decisions I have ever made. They have booked me on major Network shows and secured a ton of stories in top tier publications. Rebecca and her staff are very professional beyond belief, but most importantly they are warm and kind which is a rarity in this business. They have not been like other agencies who talk making promises but never produce. Rebecca and the entire team at The Brooks Group are 100% behind me taking my career to the next level constantly producing and executing excellence."

I've worked with Rebecca and her team at Brooks PR for years and I can say that they truly understand how to work with the media. They are professional instead of pushy, and when I have a request, they get back to me within the day. Their clients are very well served!

Issac Mizrahi Show
"I have been working in the beauty business for over 5 years and have dealt with many public relations professionals. One PR team that always stands out in my mind is Rebecca Brooks and her staff. Not only is Rebecca outstanding professionally, but I have grown to know her personally and she is equally outstanding. The Brooks Group delivers information in a timely and fresh manner. They are never overbearing, which is much appreciated as a beauty editor who is bombarded with calls, emails, and mailings all day. In addition, everyone at The Brooks Group goes above and beyond to help pull your story together—whether it's finding a statistic, locating an expert, or rushing you product. I strongly recommend Rebecca and her team; they are one of the first agencies I am always eager to work with."
"In a sentence, Rebecca Brooks, gets it!" She is a constant source of NEW, smart, and unique story ideas. You don't have to comb through her pitches looking for the point or the hook. She knows what you're looking for and always provides it with an interesting perspective. Besides being a wealth of information and experts, Rebecca is easy to work with. A consistent, reliable source, I highly recommend working with her and The Brooks Group."
"With some of the most creative mailings, Rebecca and her team of responsive and knowledgeable publicists keep my staff and me abreast of all the buzzworthy news and helped coordinate many popular contests. While most publicists take a mass-mailing approach to pitching their clients, the Brooks Group is highly skilled at matching the right product with the right magazine audience."
--Editor in Chief
"Far and away, Rebecca Brooks and her team put out the best-written press releases in the industry. On many occasions, their releases have given rise to a story in Redbook featuring, of course, The Brooks Group's products and experts. The Brooks Group has an excellent roster of clients, and Rebecca is an excellent champion for each one of them. Rebecca skillfully and successfully walks the fine line between being attentive to my needs as an editor without being overbearing. It is a pleasure to know her professionally and personally."
"I've been an editor in the industry 12 years and have worked with many public relations professionals. Why the Brooks Group stands apart: Rebecca Brooks is extremely intelligent, competent and doesn't waste editors' time with stories/products that aren't appropriate. She and her team target releases and pitches to each magazine - and it works. In addition to that, she's extremely personable - a definite must-have when it comes to effective PR professionals."
--Editor in Chief

"I rely on the The Brooks Group as a source of great products and fast, exact information. The team is well-informed on both the formulations and the various applications of each of their products, which surprisingly, is rare. Most importantly, The Brooks Group has been unfailingly patient and friendly for every request, making them a pleasure to work with."
"During my eleven years in women's magazines, I've consistently relied on Rebecca (and her team, since the agency's inception) for interesting products, interview sources--and the occasional story idea. Rebecca manages to combine a palpable enthusiasm for her clients with a rare (and highly appreciated) restraint. The result speaks for itself: an 8-year history of wide-ranging placements and particularly strong relationships with editors."
Cosmo Contributing Editor
"Rebecca Brooks and her gifted staff have their fingers on the pulse of all things beauty and style, trendy and down-home -- a keen set of eyes that make you trust what they have to say about the products they represent. One phone call is all it takes, and The Brooks PR team will serve up satisfaction on a platter -- with chips. Eat it up -- you won't find a team like them!."
"I have been working in the beauty industry for over 13 years and have met many public relations professionals, but the one public relations team that always continues to impress me is The Brooks Group. I must say that Rebecca Brooks and her team are by far the most enjoyable to work with. Not only are they attentive to my needs as an editor, but they're always thoroughly prepared with client product information and are quick to return calls. Having PR firms call on a daily basis to pitch product is not only annoying, it's a major turn-off and The Brooks Group truly knows how to get the message across in an exciting and concise way without being overbearing. They are always the first phone call this beauty department makes when researching stories or gathering product information."
"I have known Rebecca professionally for nearly thirteen years and consider her a role model for the profession of public relations. Rebecca and her team offer editors integrity and knowledge, a rare combination. I am continually impressed and inspired by her clients and the relationships she builds with them. I know I can call Rebecca for a variety of unique and cutting edge products and experts to include in a wide range of beauty, fitness and health articles. I can count on Rebecca to deliver well-written, informative press releases on her clients on a regular basis and frequently rely on her to provide additional facts and interview opportunities on the tightest of deadlines. Rebecca is well-respected among the editorial community and I am always pleased to recommend her as a publicist."
