Core team.

Simon Bucktrout

Simon has been working in Advertising and Design since 1996. His career began in Scotland working in editorial design. In 1998, Simon set sail for America. He landed in Florida, which he found to be much sunnier than Scotland. So he stayed and worked in advertising agencies on brands like Cunard, Swiss Air, Marriott, Hops, Caterpillar, Devil Rays, and Sports Authority.

If there’s one thing Simon has perfected in his 20+ years in advertising and design, it’s knowing his audience. He’s created award-winning work for people wanting to take a cruise, book a hotel room, rent an apartment, attend a sporting event or travel to a new destination.

Through a variety of these hospitality-related experiences, Simon has developed a keen sense of understanding the prospect mindsets, positioning the location and creating identities, websites and advertising that are both relevant and distinctive.

Brent Bamberger

Brent is the resident Yankee on the team. Born in ‘Merica, and raised on terrible TV ads, Brent started his copywriting career in high school writing ads for local businesses. His career began in earnest in San Francisco at Anderson & Lembke advertising (Now McCann) writing for such clients as Revo, Autodesk, Microsoft and Red’s Java house (wait, you haven’t heard of Red’s?!). Like any Bay Area person in the early 2000s, he joined a few dot-com companies and spent a decade running marketing departments for Cision, MobiTV, TigerText.

In 2011, after this client-side foray, he decided it was no fun being the bad guy and decided to return to the long hours, poor pay and soul-crushing critiques of agency copywriting life.

We give your property a promise people can live with.
