"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."

Michele Taylor  Make-Up Artist & Stylist

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.

"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!”

Tristyn Kendall  Model

My daughter was very shy before enrolling at Hoffman. The Preparatory Course has built her confidence and improved her public speaking ability. It was a great experience and she is looking forward to the Professional Course!

Kaliey Smith

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!

Melanie Jondle

Hoffman International’s Kids Klub program has been a wonderful experience to begin my daughter’s modeling career! The professionalism of the staff has been wonderful and they were eager to teach her the industry at her level. She has learned how to present herself in a more polished way, brushed up on her manners, and learned how to walk on the runway. She really had fun while learning!

"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.”

Barry Shapiro  New York Casting Director

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.

Carley Muff

Hoffman International Model & Talent Agency is absolutely the premiere Agency in the Midwest. Our two children have amazing opportunities and bookings, caring & professional staff & excellent classes. We LOVE Hoffman & all the wonderful people that make things tick there.

Amy Heithoff

"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.”

Angela Moorhouse  Model

“Hoffman talent is always prepared and extremely professional!!”

Heather Laird  Film Commission of Greater KC

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.

Julie Schroeder  Mother of Model

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.

Ashton Royer

“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.”

Cynthia Garner  Mother of Student

“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.”

Elizabeth Souder  Mother of Model

“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.”

Dan Hollinger  Kim Dawson Agency/Dallas, Texas

I have learned through my Hoffman courses that your first step, whether it is on the runway or in daily life, must always be taken with purpose. This experience has allowed me to also see others embrace themselves in a positive way while growing their confidence.

Kyndra Duncan

Hoffman International is a great place to learn and grow both personally and as a model. I have taken the Full Men’s Course which provided invaluable information and was well instructed by experienced talent.

Ryan Cashatt

The Professional Course at Hoffman International gave me knowledge I did not expect that will stay with me in my professional and personal life.

Joseph Lambert

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.

Makennah Whightsil

My daughter has taken the Full Course at Hoffman, several continued education classes they offer, and attended AMTC. It only takes one experience with Hoffman to realize their high standards and how much they care about the personal growth of each student. If you are fortunate enough to grace the Hoffman runway, the skills for future model jobs will only be a fraction of the sophistication, confidence and self awareness you will gain. This new insight will enhance every aspect of your life. Becoming a professional model isn’t necessarily the goal, but becoming the best possible version of yourself that will take you further in life both personally and professionally will be the result.

Abbi Stremming

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!
