Testimonials & Recommendations

 Tony “gets it ” when it comes to manufactured housing. He has worked or been involved in almost all phases of the business. Best of luck to Tony in creating more awareness and understanding in this often misunderstood industry.

First Guaranty Mortgage Corporation have been developing our presence in the manufactured home market, growing steadily for 4 years into a good stream of business. Since we began working with Tony Kovach and his MHProNews.com team at the first of the year, our manufactured home business has doubled. Besides benefits from advertising, Tony also made numerous introductions of our team to manufactured home professionals that resulted in an ever faster pace of growth. Our growth means the industry’s sales have grown too; this has been a win-win for our clients and all involved.”

“Tony, Soheyla and their team are always my first call for getting the word out about Legacy Housing’s manufactured home shows.  They are excellent at promoting to our targeted industry audience and it shows every time in our post-show attendee analysis. Thanks team MHProNews.com! You Rock!”

“Introducing Tony and what he has done for our firm with his marketing could be summed up with a single word: “Impressive!”…Tony’s efforts resulted in a documented increase from some 2 new inbound calls a day before he started to over 10,000 new inbound lead calls in a single year at that same location. No others…in our market had such a result…Tony accomplished this with the marketing budgets he inherited.”

Tony was utilized as the primary means to promote the 2011 Louisville Manufactured Home Show. As a member of the Show Committee and parent body presenting the Show, I can say we received tremendous value for the monies spent with Tony’s firm. He was enthusiastic and very creative with the promotional aspects and follow up after the Show. I would recommend consideration of his services to MH professionals

Tony and his company are leading the way for manufacturedhousing to enter the 21st century. He and his staff have put together remarkable educational programs and marketing that are ahead of the time and benefit the industry greatly

Before we accept a dime from a client, or take a new client on, we first have a conversation. We reserve the right to decline clients, and politely turn down possible client work every year.  Why?  

In part because we know from experience that some clients – if they aren’t truly committed to making necessary adjustments that a SWOT analysis will uncover – aren’t always prepared to make a change. Without a willingness to change, there are no improved results.  That’s stating the obvious.

We’d rather say no to a client than take one on that we can’t help them earn far more than the investment in our years of proven services.

Let’s tell you something that ought to be obvious.  Telling the truth properly works.  We don’t think that you have to spin or exaggerate in order to attract and sell more customers.  Be candid about your weaknesses as well as your strengths.  We’ll show you how to make your strengths stronger, and how your customers will gladly accept your weaknesses, because there are no perfect people, companies. products. or services.

We believe that if you target better qualified customers, you will still get those more marginal buyers too.

From before 2000 and since, a consistent pattern of success in projects from border to border should tell you this.  You can make us your first call or your last call.  But if you are serious about business development services and/or consulting, you can’t go wrong by having a 15 minute preliminary call with Tony.  Email tony@MHMSM.com or call 832-689-1729.
