|"I have been doing home shows affiliated with Marlene Thorne now for twelve years. The shows are complete and the advertising is extensive.
I have come to consider Marlene as a friend because she is always in the aisles either greeting the vendors or taking care of what needs to be done. She cares about how we are doing and actually stops by your booth to see how the show is going. If there is a concern, she will address it quickly and always is looking for ways to make the show better. Marlene takes the time to get to know her vendors so she may help us get the most out of the show.
I will continue to do all of Marlene’s shows in my local area because of the time, expense and heartfelt effort that she puts into each of her events."

"My team and I have been in the home show for the last year and a half now and each time we participate it gets better and better. A greater variety of vendors, more foot traffic, better promotions and even more advertising and publicity. I know for a fact, that bringing my business here has helped us leverage ourselves in the market place. That's amazing, considering we are experiencing the worst economy since the great depression and California real estate has been hit hard. In turn we have grown in agents, sales and profit. Like our governor likes to say we'll be back."

"I have known Marlene Thorne for about 20 years. In that time she has worked with us on our advertising in the home shows. We have special requirements for our booth and she has been extremely helpful in making sure our needs have been met.
I have seen her make sure that the other exhibitors were satisfied with their booths and that the advertising for the shows goes according to her plan. She has been very aggressive in getting customers through the doors.
Marlene is the kind of person I enjoy working with because she has our business in mind. She is more than a business associate, she is a personal friend.
Thanks again for all you have done."
