Taylor Johnson Public Relations

For more than 40 years, Taylor Johnson Public Relations has been sharing the stories of Chicago’s most vibrant real estate companies and noteworthy individuals. Led by Emily Johnson — whose mother, Deborah Johnson, founded the business in 1977 — Taylor Johnson has cemented itself as the city’s premier public relations firm for real estate companies. Clients of Taylor Johnson enjoy frequent media placements in local and national print, digital, television and radio outlets, and see their brand recognition strengthened even further through the firm’s thoughtful content, social media plans and event services.

Taylor Johnson’s clients include some of Chicago’s most pioneering and prolific real estate developers, homebuilders and brokerage firms, including Baird & Warner, Related Midwest, Fifield Companies, Lendlease, The Habitat Company, Draper and Kramer, Lexington Homes, Belgravia Group, M&R Development, M/I Homes, Downtown Apartment Company, and Optima Inc. The public relations firm also represents businesses in other disciplines connected to real estate, including architecture, interior design, urban planning, construction, property management, finance and law.

“By focusing exclusively on real estate, Taylor Johnson has acquired deep industry knowledge and built excellent relationships with the media outlets that matter most to our clients,” says Johnson. “As a firm rooted in public relations, we believe that a company’s messaging and narratives are best delivered through reporters, whose third-party endorsement of a project or idea resonates as authentic and credible. But we also share stories of leadership, challenges and successes through social platforms, sponsored content and our own industry newsletter, TJ Talk.”

Taylor Johnson’s staff includes senior-level writers and media relations executives with backgrounds in real estate, journalism, law, public affairs and marketing communications, along with experienced social media strategists and event planners. While all of Taylor Johnson’s clients are working on projects in Chicago, many are busy outside the Windy City, highlighting the company’s work in metro areas such as Los Angeles, Dallas, Phoenix, Miami, Denver, New York, St. Louis and Washington, D.C.

“It’s a privilege to work with visionaries, planners, creators and marketers who are building the future of Chicago and who have helped establish it as a place that so many people and businesses want to call home,” says Johnson. “As our clients expand their portfolios here and throughout the U.S., we look forward to many more years of collaboration.”
