“Valarie recently assisted in the updating of the IFMA Richmond website. This was much needed, and Valarie did an awesome job of consulting with the Board throughout the process until the final product was user-friendly, current and professional. Also, she kept the process on schedule. Great to work with, and I would strongly recommend to others. Brian ” Brian Workman – Richmond Chapter of IFMA Board Member – Sponsorship

"Thank you to Valarie Blaes for working with Engineering and Testing Services, Inc. to design a new and innovative website and an online social media strategy that includes mobile, Linked In, Facebook, Twitter and Google Plus. Valarie sets expectations from the get-go and takes a great deal of time up front to understand the role that she can play in maximizing her work with an organization. She is professional, thorough, smart and creative and keeps the process on point and on time. She is trustworthy and straightforward with her proposals and recommendations, and we felt that the value of service she delivered was worth the money we invested! We will continue to work with Valarie in other areas to maximize our understanding of the impact our online marketing can have to promote our business and grow revenues." Colleen Nabhan, President, Engineering & Testing Services, Inc.

“I am confident to recommend Valarie as a first class business marketing consultant. Time and time again, Valarie’s research and assistance with proposals, helped my company pursue and retain valuable clients and projects.” John Rimbey, Supervising Engineer / Senior Associate, Syska Hennessy Group

“In late summer 2013, I engaged Blaes Communications to begin working with me to develop & launch Facilities Bullpen's new website. I felt very comfortable and at ease working with Valarie as she was a terrific listener, extremely responsive to my ideas and suggestions, but quick to offer advice (such as beginning with a mobile device friendly theme format) and needed technical expertise. Valarie took basic business content provided and ran with it, minimizing the amount of work I had to do for a successful launch, truly making it a user-friendly and efficient process. This was extremely important as client project workload left me very little time to spend on the effort. Valarie also handled all of the interaction with my domain/web hosting provider, and implementation was very smooth. Since the launch, I've continued to utilize Blaes Communications to handle ongoing website maintenance. I'm 100% pleased with the attention and urgency with which she has handled these matters. I wholeheartedly recommend her services.” Rick Hughes. Principal/Project Manager, Facilities Bullpen

"Valarie got us into Social Media with inventive and creative advice and knowledge of this new way to reach out to our market...her assistance has greatly increased our presence in the professional design services marketplace. We would highly recommend her services to other design professionals." William Henry “Harry” Harris, AIA, Owner & President, William Henry Harris & Associates, Inc.
