What others are saying about Neighbors



Rose Canfield

Owner/CRM ~ Solutions Networking Corp

I chose Neighbors Magazine to reach multiple business owners and help get the word out about the IT Services & Support we provide. I could not be happier. Working with Kate and her team has been a pleasure. From the creation of the ads, to the placement and multi community publication availability allows us to reach our target market and grow our business at Solutions Networking Corporation. I highly recommend Kate and Neighbors Magazine for all businesses looking to grow their business by reaching your target market on a regular basis.

Kate Sullivan is in the top 5% of Women Business Owners in her Networking Ability. She reaches out to everyone who needs help and connects with them in hopes of their getting more clients. She does the same in her work with Neighbors Magazine. Her customers are pampered by her, which only serves to draw new ones to her. Kate is a compassionate person, who takes the time to listen and care, there is no "big ego" with Kate, just kindness

Valerie Karpeck

As a realtor and independent contractor, I seek out the most cost effective methods of advertising my services. Through Darien Neighbors Magazine, I am able to reach my entire target market, which encompasses all 9,000+ Darien households, with one advertisement. People often stop me to tell me that they have seen my ad. I have received more inquiries based on my Neighbors magazine ad than I ever did with traditional mailings. 
I have also had the opportunity to collaborate with Kate through our work in Darien Women in Business. Through this, I have found Kate to be an individual who operates with a high degree of integrity, reliability, and energy. 
I would highly recommend Kate Sullivan and the advertising opportunities available through her company, Emerald Marketing, and the Neighbors Magazine that reaches your target market

Rob Hollis

K.Hollis Jewelers has advertised in Neighbors magazine since its first publication and it has proven to be an outstanding advertising investment for us. The publication is extremely well read because it focuses on valuable, interesting, local content about the community, its businesses, its citizens, its government and its community organizations. Neighbors is delivered to around 13,000 households in Batavia so it successfully reaches our target market for pennies per household. The people at Emerald Marketing are a pleasure to work with and have a genuine passion for their publications and the communities they serve.

Ashley Hicks

Kate has always been a pleasure to work with. She has a great personality and provides a wonderful, professional finish product with the Neighbors of Batavia. She is always willing to work with you to develop a creative new ad concept and she really helps sell your product through the magazine.

Roger Breisch

In writing this recommendation I was asked to choose 3 of 7 attributes to describe Kate & Tim Sullivan and their "Neighbors of Batavia" magazine. I am disappointed I could not choose all 7. 

The magazine they introduced to Batavia has, in a very short time, become an integral part of this community--an asset the citizens have come to rely on. Because I write an introductory letter in each issue, I know firsthand how many people read it...they stop me on the street and tell me how much they love it. 

The magazine is informative, beautiful, timely and professional. We could not find a better way for all the local governing bodies (City, School District, Park District, Library, etc.) to communicate with their constituents. The Chamber Board thinks it is wonderful.

I love working with the entire Neighbors staff!

During the course of our 25 years in business we have done very few print ads, feeling this was not the most effective use of our marketing dollars. That was until Neighbors Magazine came to Batavia! From the first time I saw a copy of Neighbors, I was very impressed by the Quality of their magazine, not to mention the fact it is mailed to every home and business in our town. I signed up for a full page ad in the first issue and our business has been in every issue since! 

More importantly than being a valuable marketing tool for my business, Neighbors of Batavia is a huge asset for the City of Batavia, including all the City, Chamber, School, Library and Park District news. 

Thank you Kate and Tim for bringing such a valuable publication to our town
