The Taylor Johnson Team

Telling stories, solving problems, building relationships, having fun. This has defined Taylor Johnson as a trusted public relations firm to the real estate industry since 1977. Taylor Johnson represents a number of highly regarded developers, brokers and service firms within the world of real estate. Its philosophy of quality over quantity and of putting clients first has resulted in a number of long-term partnerships, including the company’s very first client, a 38-year relationship. Over the course of three decades, Taylor Johnson has produced hundreds of successful campaigns involving a variety of marketing disciplines. Today, the company is focused primarily on public relations, social media and event marketing.

“Successful PR comes down to delivering the right message through the right medium at the right time,” says Emily Johnson, president of Taylor Johnson. “The end product can take a variety of forms, from an article in the newspaper to a word-of-mouth campaign. And unlike advertising, publicity bears the credibility of an implied endorsement from an objective third party, designed to build brands, raise awareness and increase profitability.”

“One of the things I love about Taylor Johnson – as do our clients – is that many of our associates have been with us for several years, which adds to our family- oriented culture,” said Kim Manning, vice president of Taylor Johnson. “With 11 associates and a deep bench of senior staff, we can easily accommodate our clients’ growth and needs for extra resources. All of our account executives have extensive experience in media relations, journalism and/or real estate. There is no B team.”

TJ TALK, the company’s popular e-blast that shares the top real estate news of the day, industry events and job openings, is a must-read that can be subscribed to from the company’s website. “TJ TALK is a great example of what differentiates Taylor Johnson,” said Abe Tekippe, senior account executive at Taylor Johnson. “Not only are we a PR firm that helps real estate companies tell their stories through new and established media channels, but in building up our TJ TALK following, we have also created a platform that helps our clients reach a highly targeted audience of real estate professionals across the country.”
