We are so glad we put our e-Learning Portal together in time for the increased demand to engage K-12 educators asynchronously during the COVID-19 pandemic. Hofbauer Consulting put together a helpful, on-brand website for users to engage with our organization while learning online. Thanks to their work, we have been able to expand our geographic reach, and also go more in-depth with clients who otherwise may not have had the resources to work with us. Also, they were very responsive to our unique needs and challenges as they came up. We couldn’t have done it without them!

 Jessica Hawthorne, Director of Programs, Virginia Center for Inclusive Communities

Hofbauer Consulting built a beautiful new website for St. Luke’s Historic Church & Museum and continues to be a wonderful partner in maintaining the site. The Hofbauer Consulting team is very efficient, communicative, and incredibly easy to work with. We have been blown away by the quality and professionalism displayed by both them and the web pages they have produced for us. Their understanding of our requests and needs has empowered our organization to put our best foot forward online, which is so important in this digital age. St. Luke’s Historic Church & Museum would recommend Hofbauer Consulting, without reservation.

 Rachel Popp, Education Coordinator, St. Luke’s Historic Church & Museum

“As a new non-profit start up, working with Greg and the team at Hofbauer Consulting put us at ease from our initial meeting. Starting with their understanding of Dignity Grows’ mission and values, to their vision, support and partnership with our team, Hofbauer Consulting created the perfect website for us, our chapters, volunteers and donors. Greg and the team go above and beyond to help us troubleshoot. They provide thoughtful and creative solutions for all our needs. We continue to work with Hofbauer Consulting to expand and create sophisticated material for our website as our organization grows. Hofbauer Consulting is committed to creatively sharing their voice for their clients and bring out the best version of our vision.”

 Jessica Slater, National Coordinator, Dignity Grows

If you’re considering Hofbauer Consulting – hire them! You will be so glad you did. You will get a great website because Greg takes the time to understand your business. He turns vague ideas into brilliant designs. His team listens, innovates, and follows through. Once my site was up, they’re still here to add new components or serenely fix my mistakes. I am so impressed by their patience and the fact they don’t speak in technical jargon. (And don’t tell Greg this, but they are much more reasonably priced than the inferior competition.)

 Jennifer Kibby, Executive Director, Allen Park MI Downtown Development Authority

Hofbauer Consulting came through for our law firm in a big way, with a site that looks and works beautifully, and the ongoing support we need to keep it working well.  The project had a clear and efficient budget; the communication and planning were easy; and we are very proud of the results.  The project was painless from start to finish.
