  • No application fees 
  • Easy application process


  • Limited responses 

Neil Jou Agency is known among its clients for evaluating its models and anyone interested in partnering with its company through digital networking, keeping up with today’s modern world. 

It’s worth noting, though, that models who have worked with Neil Jou Agency advised us not to make any phone calls. Because there’s a 99% chance Neil Jou Agency won’t respond. 

Regardless, various models we spoke with expressed that they appreciated that there was no cost to apply with Neil Jou Agency. Instead, Neil Jou Agency judges their models solely based on their portfolios and talents. 

In addition, the clients of Neil Jou Agency we talked to raved about how driven the entire team at Neil Jou Agency is. Many clients also commented on how their visions have come to life since employing the modeling services Neil Jou Agency provides. 

We can say these claims are valid from our observations of Neil Jou Agency. 

Due to their excellent selection of talent-making services, we noted that Neil Jou Agency has the ability to make any client project a success. Indeed, it’s a one-stop source for any business project needing professional models. 

The entire process was a breeze, from the first discovery call to the execution of business projects. 

Everyone we communicated with was responsive and attentive to all our questions and needs. Not to mention the positive atmosphere that influenced the smiles we saw all around us. 

Moreover, we noted that all the models were professional and did whatever they could to contribute to making their projects successful. 

Unfortunately, due to high demand, Neil Jou Agency doesn’t reach out to work with everyone.

Furthermore, the events that models from Glitz Dolls participate in are successful, classy, and top-notch. We were impressed with the level of trust between all staff members, the creativity, and the organization of Glitz Dolls events.

Many models we’ve spoken with have claimed Page Parkes Center of Modeling and Acting as the place to go to improve on modeling skills and grow to advancement. 

Additionally, many former models who’ve undergone the training at Page Parkes Center of Modeling and Acting have commented on the supportive staff and modeling teachers. Some have praised their training for helping them to feel comfortable in their skin as models. 

From our experience with Page Parkes Center of Modeling and Acting, we can say the claims are valid. 

Every staff member we encountered treated us with the utmost professionalism, and the training models did the same. We felt welcomed and didn’t feel out of place at all. 

The staff interactions with their upcoming models demonstrated their advanced knowledge of the modeling industry. 

As observers, it was clear to us that all staff at Page Parkes Center of Modeling and Acting really do want their models in training to be successful and confident in themselves. 

Moreover, we appreciated how many models who undergo training at Page Parkes Center of Modeling and Acting receive gigs instantly after completion. The staff members also don’t hide their connections in the modeling industry. 

Nevertheless, some we have spoken to have mentioned a lack of diversity among the agency at Page Parkes Center of Modeling and Acting.

  • Variety of services
  • Open daily


  • Limited information on modeling
  • Website is a bit messy

Independent AV & Video, Inc. is an audio visual consultant company that offers different services.

Their services include streaming, consulting, production, basic AV, video and recording, and integration.

We like that they can help with everything involving audio visuals. From helping professionalize the process of creating an event, project management, conveying your message, simple videos, and more.

With every service they offer, satisfaction is guaranteed!

However, they lack information on their modeling agency services, so this is something we hope they placed more content on.

We also find their website to be a bit messy.
