MacConnell Research Services was incorporated in Atlanta, Georgia in 1982 by its founder Joy MacConnell Peters. She led the organization until her retirement in 1998. Upon her retirement she asked Terri (Calcaterra) Clark to return from 3½ years of mall management with a major marketing research organization. During Terri's time at the major marketing firm she moved the organization that was ranked in the bottom five to one of the top organizations right behind Mall of America.
Terri worked with MacConnell Research from 1986 to 1995 and has worked in the market research industry since 1971. She has been an active member of the National MRA for many years.
Terri is assisted by a talented staff of market research professionals, several of the team having been with the firm for the entire time Terri has led the company. Her husband, David, is the firm’s business manager, and oversees the financial affairs of the organization. Jeff Frazier has had 13 years of management experience with MacConnell Research. He returned as pre-recruit manager after 3 years with another major marketing research organization.
Suffice it to say, MacConnell Research has a wealth of experience to offer our clients. In the real estate field, it’s “location, location, location” that matters. Our belief is that what matters in our industry and our firm is “service, service, service.”
Our motto is “Field Work at Its Best.” We wonder what happened to the adage, “The customer is always right!” Our job is to give you, our client, what you want, when you want it, the way you want it. Our objective is to serve you.
