We’re pleased to announce that R&J has been named to GlobeSt. Real Estate Forum’s Commercial Real Estate Influencers in Marketing and Communications list.
Awarded annually, GlobeSt. Real Estate Forum’s Commercial Real Estate Influencers in Marketing and Communications list shines a spotlight on the professionals who help to continually shape and drive the commercial real estate industry through innovative approaches to marketing and communications. The inclusion on the list acknowledges the agency’s almost over three decades of experience in the commercial real estate field and continued communications leadership on behalf of its clients during the challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic.
For almost 35 years, the agency has been trusted by the tri-state area’s leading commercial real estate firms for strategic communications and marketing counsel. Growing from humble beginnings in 1986, its commercial real estate team now comprises a highly experienced team of public relations, digital marketing, web design, and graphic design professionals united by a shared goal of making a difference for every client.

With this understanding in mind, R&J’s robust service offerings have grown to include media relations, influencer marketing, social media marketing, crisis communications, content marketing, investor relations community relations, reputation management, graphic design, email marketing, website design/maintenance and SEM/ SEO.
Along with increased capabilities, the company’s client roster has grown as well over the years to include industry leaders in development, management, brokerage services and fund management. Whether a client is looking at increasing the number of leads for a property, establishing a thought leadership position on an emerging new trend, or creating a new corporate identity, R&J’s capabilities and expertise continually help clients of all sizes and types to achieve their business goals.
“We work closely with each of our clients to truly understand their business goals and take a data-driven approach to strategy development and execution,” said Dan Johnson, Account Supervisor for R&J Strategic Communications’ Commercial Real Estate team. “This award is a testament to our team’s deep understanding of the marketplace and our ability to drive results on behalf of our clients.”
