After three decades in the industry, we've heard some familar refrains from our clients. We form a partnership with our clients with a commitment to the integrity of the data and each project's success. Here's more of what our clients have to say about PMD Advisory Services.
PMD has done several studies for us and each one has been useful, professional, informative and complete. Their work has been an absolute necessity for our future planning. I’d like to single out Maryann Timon for special praise. As our CFO of 20 years put it, ‘she has been the single best consultant that has ever walked thru our front door’. She has brought exceptional organizational skills to the tasks we asked her to do, has been thorough and insightful as well as a pleasure to work with. I wish I could hire her to work with us on a full-time basis.
PMD supported our strategic planning efforts with a particular focus on market demand and consumer input regarding senior living options. Their Market Feasibility Analysis and Consumer Research Study provided us with the qualitative and quantitative market information necessary to support our strategic planning initiatives. Their market research was instrumental in educating our Board regarding specific market issues and consumer expectations. PMD consultants were professional, responsive to our needs, and a pleasure to work with.
From my first conversation with PMD Advisory Services through delivery and presentation of their research, PMD’s professionalism and thoroughness was top-notch. I could not be happier with the work that PMD's team delivered.
PMD has been a valuable resource for Emerald Communities throughout the growth of our Emerald Heights campus. They've also helped us explore other opportunities to expand our mission. It’s been a great working relationship, with outcomes that prove their expertise.
I have had the opportunity to work with Michael Starke and PMD Advisory Services on several different projects in two different organizations. Their work is thorough, thoughtful, incisive, and extremely helpful. From the research itself through the reporting and presentation to both board and management staff, PMD’s work has been on time and on target. I would not undertake a major project without their involvement. I am happy to recommend them to my colleagues.
The folks at PMD are professional and accommodating. Above all else, it's a pleasure to work with them. I look forward to a rich and collaborative partnership with them for years to come.
PMD Advisory Services has provided great service to our organization. The statistical data they deliver has been an invaluable part of our decision-making process. The market insights we've gained from their consumer research have been "the icing on the cake."
PMD always delivers their recommendations with the bigger perspective in mind. They don’t just tell you what you what they think you want to hear, but instead provide honest, straightforward feedback and recommendations on what the data shows is feasible for a community’s success. I never want a firm to overstate a market and PMD never does that.
