"Joe should be called Super Joe! Mr. Fabulousity! I’ve been in the fashion industry for sevenyears, working in Miami and New York, consistently searching for male models with specific characteristics. From Miami to New York, these models remain difficult to obtain.
We posted an ad in November 2011. Several agencies contacted us and several models were interviewed, none met our requirements. Disappointed, we re posted the ad. The next day, Joe contacted us, informing that had the requested models. To our surprise, Joe delivered exactly what we requested, we felt that he read our mind and understood our needs.
In early 2012, a client needed a model at the last minute with requirements that I believe were impossible to obtain in such short time. We sent Joe a text message in the morning, by 4pm he got us the model.
In march 2012, same problem occurred, Joe once again came to the rescue.
The customer service, professionalism and attention to details provided by Joe are like no other. His models are kind, fun, well educated and most importantly: they work fabulously. Joe, you truly are the best in the business. "
