Stephen - Builders of Fine HomesVery few house builders have a reputation comparable to Perth-based Stephen for design excellence, quality craftsmanship and outstanding service. This family firm was established in 1935 and the firm’s philosophy has remained unchanged: insistence on the highest standards.

With developments throughout Perthshire, Fife, Angus, Grampian and the Highlands, Stephen and its sister brand Stephen Country Homes are not just creating homes but building dreams.

What we’ve done…

Grainger PR’s relationship with Stephen dates back to 2009 and, not surprisingly, there has been a lot of great news to shout about!

Not only do I focus on their new developments and show homes but the many incentives which Stephen is offering to help prospective buyers onto the property ladder, or attempt that second rung.

Publicity has ranged from radio and TV to regional, local and national exposure, including articles in national property supplements and magazines.

I also produce the content for the firm’s quarterly e-newsletter and assist with the firm’s social media strategy.

What they’ve said…

John Stephen, Managing Director, said, “Since making the decision to co-ordinate our marketing activities which included the appointment of a dedicated PR agency, we have benefited from a significant increase in media exposure. Grainger PR has worked closely with us to ensure our PR strategy aligns with our other marketing collateral to ensure a consistency in communication. Web news items, e-newsletter, advertising editorial and social media comment are all part of the communication mix Claire handles effectively on our behalf.
