About Us: Business, Articulated

Focused on three industries (real estate + proptech, financial services and cannabis), we are a national marketing, PR and digital content agency that goes “all-in” to help our clients grow and prosper.  A woman-owned business founded in 2011, our name – Akrete – is derived from ‘accretion,’ an accounting term for business growth.  Our goal is always to apply our marketing, communications and digital expertise to help you write your business growth story and make it real.

Our specialization in three industries is narrow, yet our service offerings are broad.  We go deep in industries, then within those sectors, we provide a full range of marketing and communications disciplines.  

Akrete is the nation’s #5 real estate PR firm; Chicago’s #14 PR firm; and a leading national agency, as ranked by O’Dwyer’s rankings of independent PR firms. For more information about our awards and social impact, click here.

We organize our services into three categories as follows: 

  • Public Relations: Full-service content strategy, public relations, media outreach and communications
  • Marketing: Content-rich marketing from collateral to ads, campaigns to conferences
  • Social Media: Content, strategy, community management, campaigns optimized for your industry

Our deep industry knowledge means we have the immediate know-how to make rapid and sustained impact for our clients. We know the terminology, media outlets, social media channels and influencers, applicable regulations and major players. From Day One, we bring ideas and options to the table that enrich your marketing and grow your business.

Real Estate + PropTech: Marketing commercial real estate (CRE), #PropTech and the built environment has never been more electric. Connect creatively using social, video and mobile-friendly campaigns.

Financial Services: Deep roots in the financial services industry help our veteran consultants connect financial institution executives with key dealmakers, investors and specialized audiences.

(NEW) Cannabis: We earned our broad cannabis marketing, public relations, social media and investor communications experience in Massachusetts, and can apply that knowledge throughout North America.
