We are a national content marketing and public relations firm specialized in financial services, real estate and rapid-growth businesses.

We subscribe to a new adage: B2B + B2H. Not only are we business-to-business, we are business-to-human.  Our goal is always to bring complex content to life, making it more accessible to the individuals who read it. Strong content can influence business outcomes; to that end, our team helps your ideas come alive, and connects you with media outlets that matter to you.

No subject matter is too complex for #TeamAkrete’s 20+ person team of senior storytellers. When we write, we do so with an understanding developed over decades in financial services and real estate.  We speak your language, and will help you tell vibrant business stories rich in words, visuals and video.

Our specialization in two industries is narrow, but our services are broad.  We connect investors, customers and corporations by using strategy-shaped storytelling. Our services fall into five categories:
