I would like to extend my personal gratitude and appreciation to Jess and Susan Anderson. They have been in the entertainment business for over 35 years, and their integrity and work ethic definitely equate that of 35 years worth of hard work. Thanks to them, I have been inspired to follow out my life long dream of acting and filmaking. And under them I have had the magnificent pleasure of already having my first spot on a national television show airing Fall of 2018 along with publications in; The Lakelander Magazine, Polk Life Magazine, Focus Magazine, and Sophisicated Buyer after only a few months with them. Their enthusiasm for their talent is shown in their seemingly, never ending dedication to finding you projects accompanied by their contagious optimism and love for who you are. Not only that, but also during times of financial crisies, their patience with, and willingness to help lessen my stress was a tremendous show of character and I shall forever be grateful to them for their understanding. For that and so much more, I respect and appreciate Jess and Susan for what they do and how they do it. They are, simply put, the most generous and supportive individuals I've ever had the pleasure of working under. Any and all persons trailing eyes upon my words who are interested in, or are afraid to take that step towards what you believe to be your dream - please, I encourage you to make that leap. And do it with Jess Anderson Model and Talent Agency. I did. And I'll never regret it.

Susan and Jess Anderson have really work with me from day one. Susan and Jess have selected and promoted me for many different projects. I am very excited that today I went on a commercial audition for a very large business called "Worx" This is a power tool company and I also met and worked with on this commercial set a top rated national casting director!
Susan and Jess have worked with me through phone calls, e-mails and one on one office visits. They truly make me feel like a family member in their business and not just another customer. I am amazed with how professional they are in all areas of representation of me. I am very excited with my future with Jess Anderson Talent and Model Agency because I know Susan and Jess are 100% backing me. I highly recommend anyone that wants an agent that will promote you and back you to contact Susan and Jess. I am so happy that I made the decision to make Susan and Jess my agents :)

LISTEN UP! I came back to edit this review. I spoke to the owner one on one today on 06/30/2017. The owner and i were able to clear up a misunderstanding. My contact info was wrong on my part hence no phone contact or email contact. Today i was given info to have my child on current data base. This data base will help the industry know of my daughter Harvieanna Stevens. If you have any concerns reach out to the owner. The owner is very concern about his clients and will take the time to help resolve your concern. Thank you so much Jess Anderson Agency!!!

Jess Anderson Talent Modeling Agency is the best choice I made this year 2017. Susan handles the business side with integrity, efficiency, and professionalism. Jess handels the customer service side. He always picks up the phone to answer questions and handels situations with ergentcy, wisdom, and kindness. As a team they are very powerful and deserve the best that life has to offer. Im truly proud to have them represent me as an actress and model.

There's no possible way I can share everything that Jess and Sue have done for me in the few months that I have been with them. For starters, I have NEVER been in this business and with NO experience at all I have done PAID promo work for Big Lots, been on casting call in Miami, print work in WInter Park and have had availability requests from the Netflix show "Bloodline" sent to me three times in the last two weeks. I have been submitted for commercials and most recently Publix. Also was selected to be in a reality type show in LA (chose not to do it) Oh, and I am an average guy, a 48 year old widower with two children. I would have NEVER guessed to be doing this in 100 years. I also will NOT use another agency because having owned my business for 14 years I know what true professionals look like and that's Jess and Sue. Their heart and soul is in this and it shows in the way they take care of details and in the way they make me feel like I am their only client. One of the many details that I am impressed with is that they give you the tools to be successful and they associate themselves with quality people to help you get to where you want to go. Oh, and there is NO such thing as a two minute phone call with Jess. Even if he has 100 phone calls to make I NEVER once have felt hurried. They are the ONLY choice you need to make if you are looking to get into the business or you are looking for true professionals with a genuine personal side. In addition to them on a professional level, they are extraordinary people and I am humbled that they represent me.

Jess and Susan are terrific. I was very skeptical going to meet with them at first but they helped me break out of my shell. They make you feel like part of the family. I am very happy that I signed with them. I have done a commercial through them and have gone on numerous auditions. After every audition Jessica calls to see how it went. I am really happy that I found their agency.

Jess Anderson Talent & Modeling Agency is professional and knowledgeable providing continual opportunities for career growth. Jess & Susan are both very friendly and helpful. They keep you aware of all upcoming talent searches that may interest you and provide all the necessary information and support needed to get you through the auditions. Since being with Jess Anderson Talent & Modeling Agency I've had multiple opportunities to meet with major Casting Directors. I had the privilege of photographing for bookholder.com and will also be pictured in 4 area magazines in the new year! I would recommend Jess & Susan to anyone considering pursing this line of work.

As a mother you are always looking out for the best interest of your child. Jess Anderson modeling was one of the best things i could of done for mine. With an extremely professional attitude and hearts of gold, working with them has been comforting, knowing what good hands my son is in. They have already gotten him jobs with Disney and Magic Kindgom and print work with many popular magazines such as Sophisticated Buyer and Polk Life. I would recommend them highly to anyone of any age!

When I first spoke with Jess and Sue Anderson, they made me feel like I had known them my whole life. They are two of the nicest people I have ever met as well as two of the hardest workers I have ever met. They have helped me in so many ways. Since I got to know Jess and Sue a few months ago they have given me many opportunities to pursue my dream. I recently was given the opportunity to be a part of the Netflix Series Bloodline. I have also been given the opportunity to be seen in four local magazines and newspapers that will be coming out soon as well as a sports line in Miami. This would have never happened if it were not for Jess and Sue. I can say for sure that these two wonderful people want to see you succeed and will do everything they can to help you be successful.

Jess and Sue were nothing less than positive and friendly. They pushed me with their positive attitudes to take steps to further myself within this competitive industry. I have only been with their agency for a short period of time and they have done a lot. I have recently been a principal character in an up coming series on Netflix and just finish a photo shoot, having a principle role with the Publix training team. I had a wonderful experience. Thanks Jess and Sue for all you do!

My wife and I have been working as actors and models with Jess and Susan Anderson, and our experience with them has been absolutely remarkable. We have appeared in two episodes in the popular television series Graceland, and in four episodes in the to be named Netflix series coming out in November. Both of which were filmed in Key Largo, Islamorada, Key West and Homestead, Florida. In addition, we landed principle roles in the film produced for the Palms of Largo (Regal Palms and Sabal Palms) which are upscale retirement communities located in Largo, Florida. Both Jess and Susan are honest, credible, respected and highly professional. It has been a blessing to us that we met Jess and Susan, and that we made the decision for them to represent us in the acting and modeling profession. We love them and consider them as members of our family. Their reputation and professionalism are beyond reproach, and it has been our honor and extreme pleasure to work with them. We highly recommend them to anyone who has the work ethic, desire and aptitude to be successful in the acting and modeling profession.

The Jess Anderson Agency is more than just another model agency. It's an agency where the minute you walk in the door, you are made to feel like you are the most important person in the world to them. You feel like part of their family. They work tirelessly on your behalf to insure you get the best possible jobs available. My daughter and I just finished working on a Publix Training Video where we played the principal roles. I was so pleased that I was able to work with my daughter. It was an incredible experience! Jess and Sue also adhere to the highest standards in the industry. If you are looking for an agency, please do not hesitate contacting them!

They have over 30 years of wisdom working and representing every type of person in the business. They have been nothing but encouraging and an extremely positive support system! I was booked after only days for an FBI agent role in the TV series “Graceland” which is currently shooting in southern Florida and aires on the USA Network! Shortly after, I got booked to work at Disney! I recommend them to everyone because I feel confident and trust that they are always looking for my best interest above their own! Simply put- you need to go with people that will care! Off to bed :)

I have been in the modeling business for a little over 13 years now, and I have never worked with nicer and more caring people! After I signed with Jess Anderson, I got my first paying job only 2 months later on a new TV series being filmed in south Florida! It was such an exciting experience, and I couldn't have done it without them. They take care of everything for you. They took my pictures and had my new comp cards made within the first month, then after that I'm getting emails by the week of jobs that are interested in me! I would highly recommend this family owned talent agency. They know what they are doing, and make you feel special!!

I am so glad to have met Jess and Susan of Jess Anderson Talent and Modeling Agency, I have been working with them for less than a year so far and I have already started pulling in jobs through them such as a Brighthouse commercial, an audience participation on the TV show La Voz, and my most recent and best opportunity yet I have recently started working on the hit show Graceland where I am working as an ongoing character and working directly with the stars of the show. This has truly been a fruitful opportunity for me. Jess is always helpful and caring by helping you get amped up for each job.

It has been a blast working with The Jess Anderson Talent and model Agency. Within a month I was booked on the new USA T.V. series "Graceland" as an FBI surveillance crew member. I've been on several auditions and have a meeting coming up with one of the biggest casting agents in the country. The best part is, working with people as down to earth and that truly care about you as Jess and Susan. Since day one they've been right there, whenever I need anything. I would recommend them to anyone looking to get into the business. Thanks again Jess and Susan!

I've worked with this agency since for a long time and if jobs are available and you fit the bill, your photo will be submitted. While the photos and comp cards are an investment, my son landed a job about a month after he was photographed that paid $900 for 3 days of work with Walt Disney World Orlando. He also did a local commercial. Recently, my younger son landed a commercial for Legoland which is bound to give him great exposure. Maximize your modeling and acting potential; Jess Anderson can work for you, too!

It has been a pleasure working with the Jess Anderson Talent and Modeling Agency. I have known Jess and Sue since June 2012. They are very real people, super friendly and easy to work with. They have given me great direction and guidance in the modeling and acting industry. I had the awesome opportunity of being cast in the New Fantasyland Disney 2012 grand opening commercial which was an incredible experience. I have been on several other auditions and hope to continue my career working alongside these two amazing professionals. I give them a 5 star rating. They are a great agency!
