When we acquired the Century 21 franchise for NYC, our first priority was brand recognition through Public Relations. After meeting with several firms, we knew Kreth had the vision and industry connections to promote our brand and agents alike. I knew we had an uphill battle to create buzz around a brand that is so well known throughout the country, but had little brand equity in NYC. As a result of Kreth's efforts, Century 21 NY Metro, has quickly become one of the more visible and quoted brands in our market.
Century21 - NY Metro
Kelly Kreth will make you a star! She should actually be an Hollywood agent. She is quirky, intelligent, charismatic and looks like a cross between Lucille Ball and Debra Messing. Kelly could run for President and win if she wanted too (maybe that's a little far fetched, but you never know with Ms. Kreth.)
Her marketing techniques always incorporate out-of-the- box, thinking, which sets her aside from other publicists I've worked with. She creates ideas instead of waiting for them to happen. Kelly Kreth is in a league of her own and you just might see her on the Walk of Fame one day!

From putting a failing company on the map, to making a little star shine big and bright, Kelly Kreth can perform magic. Kelly can really make something out of nothing; she made Dwelling Quest the talk of the town in its early stages. After Kelly moved on, Dwelling Quest literally disappeared.
I am in the beginning of my career & although I do well, Kelly makes me better. My name, my face, and my written reputation precede me. I am shocked by other agencies trying to recruit me, telling me we can meet somewhere private so no one recognizes me going into their office. Kelly is a designer, an artist, a creator of perception.

Says Matthew Haines, founder of PropertyShark.com, “Kelly
got us in the New York Times not once, but twice on the same
weekend, in the real estate section as well as the front page
of the business section! Since then it has been a whirlwind
tour of the journalism world, with visits to every major publication
in New York City and beyond and many of the minor ones. Every
week PropertyShark is in the press. Before we hired Kelly
we were mentioned in the press maybe three times in the previous
David Schlamm, president of City Connections Realty, agrees,
“Kelly has been very instrumental in getting the PR
we needed for our new business model. Her relationships and
connections to the press/media have gotten us more press than
we ever imagined. She is also instrumental in designing all
of our marketing tools from our website to our recruitment
brochures. We are very happy to have her working with us and
look forward to a long lasting relationship.”
"Kelly Kreth is a born communicator. She understands
how to listen to
clients, and she also has an intuitive understanding of how
effectively work with the media. Add that to the fact that
all-around delightful person, and you have the makings of

Strategic Partner of Kreth Communications
"Having been so lucky to have worked with Kelly at
both Dwelling Quest and now at City Connections Realty, I
can vouch for her effectiveness in getting prime placements
for not only our agency, but for also for specific agents.
She ascertains the expertise of each agent and actively works
to find them a "niche" and prime opportunities to
participate in the press.
Efficient, accurate, funny, intelligent and someone who really
enjoys of her work, Kelly has directly effected my bottom
line in a positive way. "

Through a combination of creativity and knowledge of her
trade, Kelly Kreth was able to create unbelievably successful
results in a short period of time. It was a pleasure to work
with someone as laidback and easy to get along with as Kelly.
I have been paying attention to how the media industry works
for years, and I feel like I have a pretty good handle on
how it runs. This being said, by the end of the first meeting
Kelly and I had, I learned more about what really makes the
media industry tick then I had in the past 10 years.

I am obsessed with Kelly Kreth! Her innovative ideas and
spunky style make her a true original! From the moment we
began working together, I felt like I was her most important
client. She’s always calling me to brainstorm new ways
we can make me more visible. Through these sessions with
Kelly, I have received some great press that have lead to
me getting more clients.

Kelly Kreth has been AMAZING. She has helped us with the launch of CellularRE by getting us the instrumental PR that we needed to introduce our company to the Real Estate world. Shes knows everyone to know in the New York Real Estate world and has been incredible to work with. We couldn’t have gotten our company off the ground without her knowledge, consulting and creative imagination. I look forward to working with her for many more years.
