I have a VERY bad experience with Stuart Hill and Real-clear Communications. I foolishly prepaid a great deal of money  him by check for branding and marketing work. After a week he had not delivered a postcard for open house and stood me up for the follow up meeting without a call. He rushed and tried to catch up but forgot that he was not providing a logo. The work was very bad. I issued a stop work and emnd for refund. He stopped answering my calls and to date has not responded to an email. I have since investigated his website and the work he has put on his site was lifted from artists on Behance.com Two of the artists responded and stated they do not know him and have contacted him to remove their work from his site.

It is my belief based on my experience that he deliberately set out to defraud me and he has done this to other agents who he has targeted. A similar experiencby another agent is outlined on Rip Off report. He targets agents through email bombing and then calling. DO NOT PAY HIM ANY ADVANCE FEES DO NOT TRUST HIM. IF YOU HAVE BEEN A VICTIM CALL ME AS I AM COMPILING EVIDENCE AND TOGETHER WE CAN STOP HIM

As Noted by Denise Lones, My work, Vargas Creative Group, Inc as well as that of The Lones Group is being used to market Real-Clear Communications without our authorization. I was fortunate to have had someone forward me an email they recieved show my work beign passed off as their own. Til this day they, Real-Clear.com, continues to use work they did not create.

Cynthia;

We are the branding and coaching company whose copyright was and is still being abused by Stuart Hill and Real-Clear communications. We produced all of the branding present at the Real-Clear website branding portfolio. We are not affiliated with Real-Clear.com. We did not authorize their use of our materials. We learned that they had ripped-off all of our content from our branding portfolio from another company, Vargas Photography, that was also being ripped-off.

All of their example websites that they show at their website were actually created by Quantum Net Visions, not by real-clear.com. We emailed Quantum Net Visions to let them know about that back in January.

We have heard from other companies whose works were being used without permission too. If ANYONE else reading this has been taken in by Stuart Hill and real-clear.com, we would love to hear from you and you can email us at support@thelonesgroup.com or call our office at 360-527-8904.

In answer to John Whitely I would be interested in seeing the website or work provided. I am curious you have no history and appear to be new with no profile information. With all due respect can you provide proof you are a legitimate poster and agent. Thank you

I have used them - I don't know about Stuart Hill Designs but Stuart Hill himself has visited my office several times. They were quick and Stuart was knowledgeable. I'm pleased with the branding package I received.

Sounds like a few of the companies I have dealt with in the past.  If it is like those, they commit to put you on a paid ad service on Google under certain key words that you only will have (supposedly), such as "Homes for Sale in ______."  Problem is that you don't show up nearly as much as you thought and if you have any very minor computer experience you can get a better result doing a Google ad campaign yourself.

Never heard of them.  I always google the company names before doing anything.  You are right to check with other people in the field.
