Maison Communications co-founders Tania and Henrietta

Property and lifestyle firm Maison Communications launches

Former LUCHFORD APM board director Tania Thomas has joined forces with Henrietta Harwood-Smith to launch property and lifestyle agency Maison Communications.

Thomas spent seven years as LUCHFORD’s head of property and was a board director for over five of those. Before that, she was head of residential PR at estate agent Knight Frank.

Her past client work includes corporate and consumer representation for Berkeley, Finchatton, British Land, Grosvenor’s London Estate and Oliver Burns.

Harwood-Smith has 10 years’ experience in the property PR sector, working as an account manager at LUCHFORD APM and then as senior PR manager at Hamptons International.

She set up her own consultancy in 2014, working with clients including estate agents Humberts and Marsh & Parsons, and buying agency Harringtons.

“We set up Maison to provide the highest level of PR support for our clients,” said Thomas. “We love what we do and enjoy ‘being on the front line’ both pitching to the media and advising on a more senior strategic level.

“Our aim has always been to run a tight ship with a select group of clients to ensure they get maximum nurture, service levels and access to best-in-class contacts.”

Harwood-Smith added: “It felt like there was a real gap for a PR business who focused not just on property and interiors but the main elements associated with ‘living’ such as health and wellness.

“Nowadays, our clients want to partner with likeminded brands and influencers who both inspire and connect with their target audiences. Maison was born from a genuine energy to create something a little different.”
