My son Luke has been signed with Adele for about 5 years. It is surprisingly easy to get all kinds of jobs with her system. In the early days before her Facebook postings they called us for jobs for him...with the Facebook posts you get to see what is available and pick what you want to try to qualify for...there is nothing easy about this business and it's not an instant catapult to fame and fortune, but Adele does a great job to get you into doors you would not have had access to. She only gets paid if you get a job and that makes her a gem! Highly recommended!
Our family has been with Adele for a little over 6 months and we couldn't be happier. Adele is SUPER THOROUGH and pretty strict because SHE KNOWS WHAT SHE IS DOING. She knows what it takes to make it in this business and she expects her clients to take her advice always. TRUST HER. Since working with Adele for half a year, my girls have worked everything from fit models to tv series and film, and now have a great start in their college fund. THANK YOU ADELE!!
My family has been a client of Adele's for over 30 years and have had nothing but wonderful experiences!!! Her office is on the first floor of a home on Staten Island not in a basement. Which is completely irrelevant anyway since her office is her domain not her client's except for their initial interview. Keep in mind she is a TALENT agency not modeling so not every child selected is going to be gorgeous or "cute" (not everyone on tv or in print is attractive model material !!! ) It's a lot about personality !! There are times in the industry when there may be a lot of work that fits your child's profile and then there may be times when there isn't so patients is key! In my experience Adele's priority are her clients. I have had nothing but positive, memorable experiences over many years! She has been in the business for a long time and knows what she is doing.
Adele's Kids is professional as the big guys, but small enough that you feel like you are getting personal service. It is located on the first floor (not basement like a previous poster wrote) of a multi family home. the office is not huge, but we never fealt cramped. It was very nice and comfortable. I was actually impressed that they didnt feel like they needed to waste money on making it a million dollar office. I now understand why...their work speaks for themselves, they dont have to sell themselves. While waiting, I did over hear Adele (who personally interviews all prospective clients) decline 2. Unlike a previous poster wrote, she does NOT accept everyone. We were lucky enough to be accepted. Rememeber, its a TALENT agency, so just because someone is not that cute and is accepted, does not mean they accept everyone. That person could very well have a unique talent. Adele offered us to buy her book which she said explains everything you need to know to be in the business, both for the parents and the kids. It was WORTH EVERY PENNY. It literally explains EVERYTHING you need to know from A to Z! Every single question I ever had or will have is addressed in this book. I think other agencies should sel it too. I was fully prepared for every audition and job we went on, and even let a few mothers who I met at jobs read some sections, as they were lost and realized I knew what I was doing thanks to the book. At first we didn't get calls, but after about 3 weeks we got "the call." Although we didn't get the job, bcz we went on the call we started getting more calls. On our 3rd try, we booked a job. We have been booking jobs on average about once a month since. Adele's office staff is always available for a call with any and all questions, and even Adele herself, makes herself available if I need her. I know they are small, but they do the job and do it right, and get me as much jobs as I can handle so I have no complaints. I am an actual client so all I can say to the negative reviews below is that they either are competitors of Adele's or they are upset bcz their kid had no talent and was not getting jobs. Adele, we love you!

I sent my daughter's pictures to the agency and of course she was called in for an appointment. The office is in the basement of a house on a street in Staten Island. When we arrived I was told to read a notice and asked to wait. We waited for about a half hour and in that time about 6 kids were seen. Some cute ...some not..but guess what they all were ""accepted"". How do I know? Every parent came out with the $40.00 book under her arm! Amazing, that we have so many talented kids on the Island! Anyway, when my daughter's turn came we went before Adele. She asked my daughter a few questions and guess what?? She was accepted too. The thing that really turned me off was a girl about my daughter's age was ""interviewed"" right after us and Adele said the ""exact"" things to her! Anyway, I didn't buy the $40 book and we opted out! Come on when I saw that she did not turn away one child I was very leery. She probably survives on the money from selling that book!

Very happy to have worked for Adeles. They are very down to earth.. not hyped up. They offer you legitimate work with tv or film and pay a fair salary. All the time I have had professional hair and make up and careered food sets. Its been a wonderful experience and great for your career in acting, modeling with out all the non personal hyped agencies that could care less about you. Adeles is great.

i signed my daughter up n she didnt get any calls! we already told her that she had made the cut to go further and she was very dissapionted. i have to give this place a 4 out of 10 because the agency i had no problem wit it its just they nevr keep their word and i was very angry with them. i even sued them and won 6.3 million dollars. Never use this agency. Ever. Thank you for reading this review.
