Our Origin Story
As life-long geeks and serial entrepreneurs ourselves, we know all too well the struggles that you go through while growing a business (and trying to hide your pocket protector). You're overworked, understaffed, but still want to grow. We knew there had to be a better way.
Through our experience as successful business owners and our partnerships with leading software providers, we've fused the power of technology and human ingenuity to deliver the next generation of sales and marketing solutions for fast-growing companies that are ready to invest in the next level of their own success.
The Geekly methodology and our team of certified HubSpot Geeks systemize your operations and put your marketing on autopilot so you can spend less time working in your business and more time working on your business (or better yet... watching superhero movies with your pocket protector on full display).
Our origin story began when we were an industry-niched process and marketing automation company known as RentBridge. This is where we cut our teeth helping real estate, mortgage, and property management companies grow and scale their businesses through the use of HubSpot and our proprietary software. In our first few years, we focused solely on the housing industry while we honed our powers and developed methodologies that have helped our clients succeed through the use of marketing & sales automation, SEO, inbound marketing, pay-per-click ads, website design, and all the tools within the HubSpot ecosystem.
Over time, word of our clients' success spread. As with every hero's journey, RentBridge responded to the call to serve industries far and wide. Just as our favorite mild-mannered reporter takes off his glasses to become the caped crusader, RentBridge shed its housing identity to become Geekly Media, the most powerful marketing agency in the world (not overselling at all 🙄). Our mission, and we chose to accept it, is to help businesses from all industries to find the same success our clients have achieved from the beginning.

Senior Vice President
When she's not crushing goals at work, you can find her burning calories on her Peloton, diving nose-first into a good ol' printed book, or getting lost in the world of trashy reality TV. Outside? She loves walking her rescued fur baby Zoey and her fluffy bichon-pom mix Oliver, and perhaps indulging in some retail therapy.
Food choices? Think brussel sprouts and pizza! (By the way, she's campaigning to make chocolate and sparkling rosé official food groups. Who's with her?)
Her favorite places on earth? Anywhere her husband is... plus Italy, Paris, London, New York. Yeah, she's got a flair for the iconic!
HubSpot Implementation Consultant
Erin Kasmarick is the HubSpot NINJA, Team Worrier and Project Manager at Geekly Media. Erin started working with RentBridge (now Geekly) in 2018 after working with HubSpot users as a freelancer before coming on full-time. She was named one of the top 1,000 HubSpot users in the world and has seven years experience with the platform.
“I love the people that work here at Geekly Media. It’s more like a family than it is a workplace. Everyone here works hard and supports one another. There is truly not another team like this one. Oh and I get to use HubSpot everyday!”
Erin lives in the frozen foods section of the United States with her husband and two beautiful daughters. When she’s not using HubSpot at work, she likes to visit her parents in the Florida Keys and enjoys sweet treats.
HubSpot Solutions Architect
Jessie Gillan serves as our Solutions Architect, which is our Geekly way of saying she strategizes better ways to utilize Hubspot for continued growth for our company and clients. Before she found her way to (what we feel is) the best marketing agency in the world, she worked at Stark Carpet as their CRM Manager and Sales Analyst. She also served for almost 14 years as the head of marketing, data, and eCommerce for a modern and contemporary art auction house.
As a Geek, she likes the creative spirit of "figuring it out" and the strong lady leadership in the company. In her spare time, Jessie likes to read, make art, learn to juggle, and lay in her hammock (perhaps all at the same time). You might also find her in one of her favorite places, either Portland, Maine, or near any lake, enjoying tempeh and mashed potatoes with her 5-year-old son (Louis) and two cats (Sylvia, 17, and Clementine, 2).

Geekly Media Account Manager
Emily Gessel is an integral part of our team as an Account Manager, claiming to be 110% a Geek (we agree). Before joining Geekly Media, she was nerdish in the FinTech space and worked across several fashion brands to grow their digital footprints.
She loves that Geekly Media is a group of hard-working, dedicated, tenacious digital experts that raise each other up. It's an incredible team that works closely together to ensure we deliver nothing but polished work that we are proud to stand behind.
Emily is a Gym Geek and enjoys getting a good sweat in at Hot Yoga. She also enjoys keeping up with her garden, the outdoors, and feeding the bunnies in her backyard during dusk. Her family is super important to her, and her Dad will always be her best friend and hero.
When asked about her favorite place on earth, she gurgled something about being a fish in a previous life, as the place she enjoys most is the beach and the idea of eating sushi for breakfast, lunch, and dinner.
SEO Content Editor
Mikki Neri is the Khaleesi of Quickbooks, Keeper of the Accounts Payable. She has been described as a sleuth and solves accounting problems that nobody else can seem to solve. Before making the switch to Geekly Media, Mikki worked in a restaurant. She prefers working at home rather than in the office because her pajamas are much more comfortable (Girl, don’t we know!).
Mikki loves working at Geekly because she feels like she belongs (It’s because she does). She also believes the wit, the energy, the geekiness of the people at Geekly Media feeds her soul.
In her free time, Mikki loves to play Call of Duty (and just shoot things in general) and work Sudoku puzzles. She represented her home country of the Philippines in international Sudoku competitions, which is probably why she’s so good at solving accounting problems. Although Mikki has traveled to some of the best places on earth, nothing compares to the beaches in the Phillippines, she said. Her favorite foods are pizza and chicken wings (the perfect combination). Mikki lives with her two Golden Retrievers, Orie and Yellie, and loves to vacuum dog hair every single day. Her favorite piece of advice is “keep a lint roller in the car.”
Digital Marketing Assistant
Digital Marketing Assistant
Ella Pa is a developer and a custom HubSpot integrations Geekster. She fell in love with computer programming in college, and before becoming a Geek, she developed websites for companies across the world.
She said she loves working at Geekly Media because of the chance to learn new things and the great brainstorming sessions (we have a lot of brainpower at Geekly!).
“I like my work, and I think I’m lucky to work on different projects for our clients,” she said. “Geekly Media also allows me to take care of my three little kids while still growing professionally.”
When she’s not designing and solving complex HubSpot issues for clients, Ella enjoys spending time with her family and playing board games with her children, including Monopoly (which she claims to be unbeaten). She also likes to travel, read, meet with friends and visit some of the beautiful ancient castles and palaces of Ukraine. “It’s interesting, and I’m grateful to be a part of it. I hope to show it to our children one day.”
Her favorite place on earth is the Dniester River’s shore near Bakota. She loves sushi and can’t believe it took her so long to discover this deliciousness. Plus, she loves to teach her children to cook some of the best Ukrainian cuisines.
Junior Marketing Assistant
As one of our two favorite “Erins,” this Erin is a junior marketing assistant for Geekly Media and has been with us for more than two years. Without her experience and expertise, blogs would go unpublished, videos would never see the light of day, and many critical tasks would fall by the wayside.
Before Geekly Media snagged her amazing talent and hardworking approach to everything she does, Erin was a virtual assistant for a drop-shipping business and Australian property management companies. She also worked as a call center agent before her five-year (to date) work as a virtual assistant.
Erin enjoys being part of the Geekly Media team because it’s a fun working environment (obviously). She enjoys that everyone is nice to each other (for real, we really are), and there’s room to grow in her role and within the company.
In her spare time (and when she doesn’t have many chores to tackle at home), she and her partner of seven years (Kurt) go for walks, take photos, and enjoy eating out. They also enjoy staying home, binging great TV shows, sleeping, eating Ramen (while trying not to eat bacon every day), and playing with their three cats (Derpy, Clengcleng, and WoaWoa). Erin is also looking forward to adding a Bully to their fur-family, which they plan to name . . . Ramen.
Junior Marketing Assistant
Joanna Estabillo is a marketing and HubSpot assistant (mini-NINJA) for Geekly Media. Before joining the Geeks, Joanna worked as a customer service representative and a quality specialist. She loves working at Geekly because of the opportunity to learn new things and hang out with awesome people (For real, though, they are a great bunch of people).
When she’s not helping clients, Joanna likes to watch anime series and online window shop. She’s also teaching herself how to play piano, so ask her to play Rocket Man by Elton John next time you see her. She is a self-proclaimed introvert and is perfectly happy spending a quiet evening at home eating anything with shrimp and sipping on a fresh green mango shake. Joanna also takes care of her two dogs: Blacky, because he’s black, and Teachie, because of the song “Teach Me How to Dougie,” (What?) but also answers to “Beachie,” especially if there’s food involved.
Paulina Gutierrez is a content writer for Geekly Media with a heavy focus on making marketing talk intelligible for those who don’t speak marketing. Before becoming a Geek, Paulina taught English for eight years, teaching all ages from toddlers to adults. She also taught ballet and yoga — not at the same time, of course.
She said she loves working at Geekly Media. “Despite working remotely, I feel comfortable talking to the Geeks as if we’d known each other for longer. The conversations are filled with empathy, and collaboration happens seamlessly. I feel challenged by my job, but it motivates me to think that it will help people learn and become more successful,” Paulina said.
In her free time, Paulina tries to twist herself into a pretzel every morning with her yoga practice. “I love a good stretch in the morning and teaching whenever I can.” She also plays guitar and sings but doesn’t consider herself a “professional” musician.
Paulina’s favorite place on earth is the beach, and she goes as often as possible. But she also loves visiting the cultural areas of Mexico, called Huasteca — a mountainous tropical forest area filled with gorgeous waterfalls. “I could live there forever,” Paulina said. “Listening to the birds, drinking coffee on a terrace in the middle of the mountains.” (Don’t stay gone too long, Paulina. We need you!).
Her favorite food is Indian, specifically samosas (No, Michael Scott, not Smores). Paulina lives in Guadalajara, Mexico, with her husband and a three-year-old girl. She said being a parent is fun and crazy (sometimes even at the same time). Her dog, Nestor, completes her family and is an expert cuddler.
To us, positivity is more than just being happy. It's about standing tall against temporary defeats. It means dusting off the dirt and getting back in the game. It means getting knocked down seven times and getting up eight. That's the type of can-do attitude we bring to work every day—for ourselves and our clients.
FIO (Figure It Out)
Our mantra is "we will figure it out." We know that every problem has a solution, and we work hard until we find it. There is no guide to what we do, so we're writing it. Our motivation comes from deep inside every one of our team members. That drive cannot be stopped.
We are naturally ambitious. We reach for the stars and keep grinding until we get there. Our company's success is your success. When you win, we all win. We are competitive—almost to a fault—which can make the difference between success and failure.
When it comes to light, brilliant means very bright and radiant. When it comes to people, brilliant means clever or talented. Our team encapsulates all of it. Geekly Media is a company of sharp minds, sharp wit, and the best in the industry when it comes to breaking molds and setting new standards. We're a team of creatives who take a Geekly interest in our work.
Our commitment to excellence is really what sets us apart from any other company. We set high standards because we know we are capable of more. Our reputation as an industry leader is always at the forefront of our minds and at the heart of everything we do. When we fail, we learn and improve.
We are loyal to our company, culture, each other, and our customers. What we are building is more than just another marketing agency. We share our successes and failures. We do the right thing because it's the right thing. We are dependable and know that our teammates and clients are counting on us to do our jobs and do them well. And when our teammates need help, we raise our hands and pitch in without expecting anything in return.
Geekly's vision is to help our clients grow their businesses. We do that through expert inbound marketing, website design optimized to reach their target audience, automation, and helping tear down walls between the different departments in their companies to share data back and forth to improve the overall quality of every department. Our theory is a rising tide lifts all boats. If one unit of your business is growing, the whole organization should. That means more scalability, cost savings, and exponential growth for our clients.
As a Diamond HubSpot Partner, we create cutting-edge online experiences that elevate brands and generate conversions.
They saved the day, big time
We worked with the Geekly team on a project that had gone off the rails. They saved the day, big time. We got great creative that "wow-ed", super fast and responsive team, friendly and fun collaboration, and made new friends. We are so grateful for Heather and the WHOLE GEEKLY team! We look forward to working with them again.
Partnered with Geekly
We partnered with Geekly to automate some of our operational systems. They were able to walk us through a process and build a ticketing system and automation for our rent collections, late rent/eviction process. We were able to move one full-time employee off of rent collections and re-positioned them elsewhere in the business.
Can't say enough about Geekly. They are truly experts at what they do and have helped our company tremendously!
