"You're a SUPERSTAR VoiceOver Artist! It was great working with ya on the new TV spot for ORECK!" —Dylan Dawson, Producer, Script-to-Screen, Inc.

“Wow. I've directed a lot of VO in my time. One time Scott Rummell nailed it. One time Hal Douglas did. Pretty much you are the only other one that gave me exactly what I wanted in your first read. Thanks Mara!" —Jeff Keels

"I have had the pleasure to work with Mara Junot on several projects for The World Bank. Each time we have been delighted with the timeliness of her work, and most importantly, her commitment to getting the appropriate intonation for the content. My prior experience with voice talent was always in-person at a local Philadelphia studio. I was concerned about working with talent procured through the internet and by not being present to check the recording in real-time. However, Mara's absolute professionalism on all levels, and has proven my fears to be unwarranted. I recommend Mara Junot without reservation." —Candace Roberts, President, Quantum Think Corporation

“Mara’s voice truly is unique, superbly professional, and her skill and range is ridiculously awesome!” —Mick Lauer, Co-founder of ArtistUpgrade

“…I fell in love with her voice from the first time I heard it. …She has that 'it' that not just anyone can bring to the microphone… I expect [the] best work and I have never had to try very hard to get it from Mara. Mara is a solid professional who has batted 1,000 for me at Charter Media and Comcast Spotlight.” —Delton Perrodin, Producer, Comcast Spotlight

“Every time I hear one of Mara's auditions, I wonder, 'Is there anything she can't do??' This woman is the 'swiss-army knife' of voice-over!” —Jim Stanley, Audio Producer, Earworks Media

“I needed a voice over that was very distinctive, Mara fit the bill. She is extremely gifted and talented. Her professionalism is superb.” —Kenneth Cooper, President of Rumae Natural Skin Care

“Mara paints feelings with her voice, facilitating the conjuring of scenarios in the mind's eye of the listener.” —Randy Orgeron, Art Reproductionist at Color Simulation Service

“Mara is a perfectionist with incredible talent... Her turnaround time was astonishing. We plan on using her again without hesitation!” —Alastair Halliday, Principal Creative, Slim Kiwi™

"Mara Junot is going to make somebody A LOT of money. Mara is an excellent on-air talent. She understands how to adapt to different formats very well. STAR MATERIAL!!" —John DeLise, Operations Manager/PD/AM Show Host, Sunburst Media

"You have been really great to work with. You've made it easy to do business over the internet!" —Isaac Burrows, XO Consulting Corp. and CFO Financial Group

Hey Mara,

I thought payment was released to you automatically as soon as I approved the files on Tuesday. Obviously I was WRONG! I was wondering why Voices.com kept showing the job in progress. I'm not all that familiar with the working aspects of Voices.com yet. I apologize once again.

Anyways, I'll say again that it was pleasure working with you! You have a MILLION DOLLAR VOICE!

Cheers,
Maurice

Mara was absolutely stellar. She did a near perfect read, over 10 minutes long, and was extremely gracious and timely with the few change requests we had. She's got a terrific intuitiveness in her reads, and she comes across as a vibrant, authentically enthusiastic narrator. She's pitch-perfect.

We will absolutely recommend Mara, and be happy to work with her again. She's most highly recommended!

It is always a pleasure to work with extremely talented (and intelligent) people. Mara is one of them. She understands clearly what is required but best of all she throws in something extra giving us lots of choices, wonderful choices that is! Mara is our secret ingredient to our projects. Okay, now, it's not a secret anymore.
