IPS Realty:

Public Relations & Strategy

Helping a Detroit real estate company become known

Brent Maxwell, Managing Director of IPS Realty, has wisdom about Detroit residential real estate and the city’s rebirth. In decades of working toward building real estate investment in the city of Detroit, as well as real estate management, his company IPS Realty has become expert in identifying neighborhoods on the cusp of rebirth and doing what it takes to make it happen.

Your People LLC began working with IPS Realty in 2016, writing weekly blogs to share Brent’s unique perspective and expertise, and pitching media on the compelling stories Brent could share about Detroit’s rebirth. In the midst of Detroit’s resurrection from a city with a national reputation for doom and destruction to a city exemplifying entrepreneurship, possibility, and a new way of urban living, Brent Maxwell and IPS Realty’s voice were welcome and fresh, needed in a landscape known for its hardy exterior.

Our work together has ebbed and flowed as needed, adding business development guidance to the mix and securing great exposure for Brent’s infinite wisdom about Detroit. We are honored to work with such a visionary, sharing good stories about the city we love for all the world to see.

Your People landed Brent Maxwell, IPS Realty, on Detroit Wants 2 Know to speak on building real estate investment in the city of Detroit.
