Clients Words

Tell it like it is
I met Anne back in 2007 when we collaborated to create a class called Hands on Marketing for the Women’s Business Development Council.
Putting our agency experience together resulted in an exciting class for our students. What is so great about Anne is her passion and enthusiasm for the business.
She has a unique ability to relate to clients and provide real depth and guidance for their specific needs.
Anne can assess people really fast and provide real life solutions. She makes sure that everyone she comes in contact with realizes their potential, sees a light at the end of the tunnel and succeeds.
Marian CicolelloDirector, NYC Business Solutions, Next Street
Since 2000, Anne DiFrancesco has taken care of our marketing program. We’ve placed our trust in her. From the development of our comprehensive marketing plan each January, to the rollout of our direct mail campaign, the press releases, online and print ads, award submissions, special events, and much more. Anne handles every aspect of our annual program and does it well.
I can’t say this about many vendors: Hoffman Landscapes and Anne’s agency A&M Studios work together like an “in-house” team. We share the same goals and a desire to succeed. As they say, the proof is in the pudding. Through all these years, Anne’s efforts have helped Hoffman Landscapes grow steadily, even during the recession. I recommend her.
Michael HoffmanPresident, Hoffman Landscapes, Inc.
I truly can’t say enough about Anne. The energy, resources, ideas, and substance that she brings to counseling sessions with clients is really superb!
