"Living in my safe zone for 52 years was very comfortable, but also very crippling. Because of this journey I have been on through Hoffman, the invaluable lessons learned in the classes, and my ongoing association with this incredible agency, I feel like I have a pulse again. I can honestly say it has been a life-changing experience.”
"Hoffman International has been my family for over 20 years. Without Kim Hoffman’s support and belief in me, I would not be the make-up artist & stylist that I am today. She helped me attain my very first Hallmark job 15 years ago, and I’m still working for them today! Because of Kim, MANY doors have opened for me through the years, including working on the Dr. Oz Show. Kansas City is VERY lucky to have such a well-respected modeling and talent agency that not only books talent regionally, but also signs talent nationally and internationally."
My experience at Hoffman International was exceptional! I learned so many things I use everyday such as walking with poise, public speaking, dining etiquette, and taking care of myself properly.
Hoffman International is truly a great place to improve yourself, whether you are involved in modeling or acting. The instructors strive to make every class benefit you in everyday life.
Hoffman International is the embodiment of professionalism and class. Their courses cover the entire spectrum of the industry with an exceptional attention to detail. Through their first-class tutelage and continual support, Hoffman facilitates the development of invaluable skills and genuine confidence necessary to reach one's full potential.
Hoffman has taught me many life skills, a rarity in today's society that I will forever use. Not only did they focus on the outside of a person, like skin and nails, but every person at Hoffman also asked questions about who I was as a person. Hoffman has offered me many beautiful opportunities and I will be forever grateful.
“Hoffman International is known for finding some of the most beautiful models within the Kansas/Missouri region. Due to the leadership and developed eye of Kim Hoffman and her wonderful staff, Hoffman Agency continues to remain one of the top regional agencies within the United States. We are proud to work with Hoffman Agency and to call Kim a friend.”
My class experience at Hoffman was excellent. Not only did I get to meet many new girls who I can now call friends, but the instructors really helped me gain self-confidence.
I have to admit I was a little unsure about having a daughter enter into the "modeling world". I quickly realized at Hoffman those fears were unfounded. While at Hoffman, my daughter has gained the skills she needed to be successful as a model while, at the same time, shaping her character, teaching her what it means to be a professional in all she does, and has impressed upon her a need for integrity in everything. I have seen her stretched and incredibly challenged and yet her confidence has soared. I call that an amazing success story.
I am convinced no matter what my daughter does in life, the personal, inter-personal and communication skills she has learned will be invaluable. I wish I could have all seven of my children go through the class for this reason alone!
"My daughter Sydney has been with Hoffman Agency for six years and, since her start at age 4, knew she wanted to model. The classes and teachers are outstanding and, with the assistance of the friendly, helpful and encouraging staff at Hoffman, her dream has become a reality. Since Sydney's journey began with Hoffman, I have seen lots of wonderful changes in her and at Hoffman Agency. I am excited about what the future holds for Sydney and look forward to the upcoming years with Hoffman.”
As a professional model on the local, national and international level, I can truly say that I trust Kim Hoffman with my career. Kim is well known across the industry for her eye for scouting talent and bringing them to the next level. The Hoffman staff members are not only amazing business people, they are like family to me. I recommend Hoffman International to any individual looking to get into the modeling and talent industry. Your career dreams might come true with Kim Hoffman by your side.
"After completing the Full Course at Hoffman, I gained the knowledge and confidence to achieve success in all types of modeling in the Kansas City market. I have been fortunate to appear on magazine covers, book runway shows, and be featured in print ads, catalogs and commercials for companies including Wal-Mart, Sprint, LG Google, Pac Sun, Tiffany & Co. and CVS Pharmacy. Thank you, Hoffman!”
"We have been affiliated with Hoffman since 2001. Both of my young sons, at one stage or another, have booked jobs with clients including Hallmark, KC Parent, Sonic, Applebee's, Tide, Hostess, Sprint & KS Dental Public Health. We have always felt very comfortable and at ease at Hoffman and, while everyone there is terrific, I've become particularly fond of Cara Price. Cara has always made each of our experiences amazingly stress-free. THANK YOU, Hoffman, for giving my boys such great opportunities.”
"I have had a very long relationship with Hoffman International. Everyone from the staff at Hoffman to the talent they represent, are very professional. When I am booking talent, I always know that things will be taken care of and that every detail is tended to with great attention and utmost customer service. I can trust that their models and actors will arrive on time and fully prepared for the shoot ahead. Hoffman knows what they are doing, and I love knowing that I can always count on them to deliver.”
"I have worked with Kim Hoffman for nearly 20 years and have found her to have impeccable taste in talent, whether it is a model or an actor. She is also very loyal and wonderful to work with.”
One of the things I really liked about the Hoffman International classes was getting to practice what I was learning each week. From the photo movement lesson to the acting class at Wright Laird, I was always receiving guidance from professionals to better myself. The agency's staff comes together to make each class interactive and realistic for each student so they're ready for anything.
I have been with Hoffman International for two years and am so grateful for having started with such a great agency. I was always prepared when I walked into a booking because Hoffman does such a great job through their classes at developing the model to be professional from day one. Plus, the Hoffman Team is extremely knowledgeable in the modeling industry and has helped me go from working in Kansas City to Dallas, and now New York. Their professionalism, knowledge and constant support have made me very proud to call them my Mother Agency!
Hoffman International gave me the skills to succeed through training and strong encouragement. I used to believe I could never be a professional model or actress until Hoffman gave me a chance to shine. I cannot thank Hoffman enough for the experiences I've had.
“Hoffman talent is always prepared and extremely professional!!”
Walking into an audition with Hoffman confidence is worth so much to us! Kali walks in standing proud and tall because she knows what to expect! I was amazed at the kids who had no idea what company they represented and moms answering cell phones and taking videos of their child. Kali may never land a commercial but she feels so good after each audition because she went in prepared and carried herself like a little professional model.
When Cara Price scouted me at a local fashion show in the summer of 2014, never in my wildest dreams did I imagine to be signing with the agency that would guide me to achieve the VIP Choice Award for the Overall Female Adult Lifestyle Model at AMTC Shine Summer 2015. As an aspiring model under 5’8,” most would think I was ‘too short’ to be a model. Since I signed with Hoffman International I decided I wouldn’t let my height limit my career. For the last six months, I have been training to be a better model and actress. This summer I put my skills I have developed at Hoffman International to the test, and I was able to meet with the world’s top modeling and acting agencies. Along the way, I have made such a warm and loving family in Hoffman International and met some of the most talented people I have ever seen at AMTC. The large investments in time, money, and energy were well worth the experience I have had this week. I can’t thank my parents enough for all they have put into me, and Kim Hoffman enough for coaching me to the top.
My daughter attended the Personal Development Class at Hoffman. I am very grateful for Hoffman International for hosting such a class! My daughter was excited to attend this class and learned more than I could have imagined. I am glad that I signed her up. Thank you Hoffman International.
"As a photographer, it makes my work very easy when agents are on point when it comes to communication. Cara Price is great when answering my questions and concerns or assisting with any issues. Hoffman International has one of the most professional sets of models in the Kansas City area. They arrive very composed and prepared, and always bring their portfolios or comp cards. I always look forward to meeting and working with their talent.”
“Hoffman International and staff are absolutely wonderful. They are working with my son, Samuele, teaching him the essential skills required to make it in this industry. I see him growing each week with the confidence required to compete in this industry. Thank you, Hoffman International.”
“My daughter did not participate in a lot of activities and was incredibly shy and self-conscious when she walked through the doors at Hoffman a few years ago. The results were amazing. She has had numerous modeling achievements, but those pale in comparison to the agency’s role in teaching, leading, and exemplifying to my daughter what confident, strong women can achieve if they are committed and work hard.”
"I took a leap of faith in pursuing a modeling and acting career, and it has turned into an amazing journey with Hoffman International. I have been blessed with so many wonderful opportunities because Kim and her staff have shown such kind and loving support and provided impeccable training. Hoffman is truly part of my family and I am forever grateful.”
"The staff at Hoffman International is always SO kind and helpful! You may be nervous about something, but once you walk in the door, you are warmly welcomed and all of your needs are quickly addressed. I am very grateful for such a supportive staff!”
