Andrew Zimmern

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.

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 do not 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!

The Brooks PR team has shown us the following essential 3 criteria: 1. Polished representation. 2. They are proactive. 3. They get results. What I appreciate most is there are no empty promises made. They continue to impress us with consistent deliverables and an eye for detail. We are lucky to be represented by a team of such talented individuals.

The Palm Restaurant Group

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.

Every great recipe has a secret ingredient and that's what the The Brooks Group is for weelicious. I didn't understand what PR could do for a growing company until I met Rebecca and her tireless, passionate team. They are on top of every detail, always follow through, never take no for an answer, treat every opportunity with the greatest of care and are damn good looking, to boot! I'm so lucky to have them in my life. They rock!

Rachael Ray

"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!"

Ingrid Hoffmann

"Hiring Brooks PR has been one of the best and most strategic moves in my career. They have booked me on the most important Network shows and secured stories in top magazines around the country. They have brought my career to another level.

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."

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."

Dr. Jennifer Ashton

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!

Jeffrey Saad

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!

Cat Cora

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!”

Pip's Place

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.

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.

Jackie Warner

"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."

All of our PR needs are being met. I feel lucky to have their representation."

"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."

Ashunta Sheriff

"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."
