Real People Management

To Whom It May Concern:

I have found another agency about which I am also curious in finding out more information.

The name of the agency is Real People Management, and they are also based in Syracuse, NY.

Their web address is:

Tel: (315) 468-3747.

Please tell me if this agency is reputable.

Thank you,



No complaints about RPM. They claim to have been in business since 1991. But there is apparently no BBB record for them. However, that could be a good sign, since the BBB usually opens a new file based on the number of inquiries or the number of complaints.

REAL PEOPLE Management is a full service modeling and promotions agency established in 1991. We specialize in booking professional models and trained promotional talent for a wide variety of business and corporate events.

While they claim to be a full-service modeling and promotions agency, it is not clear how many of the modeling jobs they get models are print and how many are promotions. Did you see any tear sheets?

If they only get promotional work, that could explain why there were no tear sheets on the site. Promotions typically does not involve photography. Your picture does not have to be taken, for example, if you are signing people up for credit cards.

What type of jobs do you want to get? Any of these?

Beverage & Liquor Sampling
Cosmetic & Fragrance Promotions
In-store Demonstrations
Liquor & Beer Promotions
Mystery Shopping
Sign-Up / Registration / Contest Events

Back to your question. You asked if they were reputable. To answer that question you need to inquire about three things which their website lacked:

1) BBB record; 2) tear sheets; and, 3) client list.
