I have been with the VanDyke Agency for four years. Jana is the hardest working, most loyal agent in this business. She sends me out on every audition for which I am a good fit, and continues to do so to this day even though I have not earned her much in the way of commissions. She wants all her talent to succeed, and arranges special classes with top instructors on acting, auditioning, script reading. She even has an annual barbecue to make sure we're well fed.

I love Jana!!! She represents my 3yr old son and at the time that I submitted him to her agency he was one and she did not represent children that young. However she was blown away by his personality not to mention he is incredibly handsome:) I got a very good vibe from Jana in the beginning but there was one particular incident that reassured me my child was in the best hans in this industry. He was up for a role that would have potentially been very lucrative for him and Jana. However the nature of the role was one that I was not comfortable with and niether was Jana. So we turned the role down, after turning the role down Jana reached our to me and told me how proud she was that I stood my ground and stuck to my morals. You dont find that often in this business. I am forever grateful for her!!!!

The Jana Van Dyke Agency has represented me for years and I'm proud to be apart of this agency! I've seen how this agency has grown over the years and Jana has made herself and the agency known in the east coast. Jana is one the nicest agents I've ever met. She's very professional and cares a lot about her talent. She's very down to earth and I feel that I can always be myself whenever I'm around her. Jana is very hardworking and has a great reputation in this industry. I'm happy to be apart of a wonderful agency. I'm happy to know that Jana cares about me as her talent. Jana is the BEST!

In this business, there are no handouts. You have to earn your keep. Having an Agent that keeps it honest with you is important. JVA is that. Straight up no filter. It's impossible to please everyone, true. But Agents are only suppose to do 10% of the work, the other 90% is on you. If you work hard and keep busy, things will come to you no matter what Agency you are with. Also, I know that when JVA gives a compliment, they mean it. With anything its important to look at yourself before pointing a finger. All-in-all, at this Agency you have Justifiably Vibrant Actors (JVA).

When I moved back to Atlanta from LA i tried submitting back to my old agent who did not accept me back. Jana welcomed me with open arms and in the past year...I have booked FIVE amazing jobs and one of them recurring on an upcoming ABC show...I must say...I was hesitant at first but after she saw my talent and BELIEVED in me ... I felt that if I could in the door (an audition) I assured her that I will book...and low and behold...here I am now...she's sweet and spiritual too...and her team works hard!!!

Last year when I decided to change agents, I did my research and talked to fellow actors about their agents. While we have some great agents in Atlanta, I chose The Jana VanDyke Agency because almost everyone I spoke to raved about Jana and her team. So far, I have not been disappointed. I get TONS of auditions (I recently had three in one day) for major films, commercials, and television shows filming in Atlanta. Jana truly does care about her talent and the entire agency feels like family. The Jana VanDyke agency is not the biggest in town, but I am very happy with my relationship with them!

If you want an agent who is passionate about you and your success, Jana VanDyke is the woman! She is a person of exceptional character and integrity, and I totally trust her. Moreover, she works long hours for her actors and gives us everything she possibly can. I celebrate Jana VanDyke and feel so blessed to be on her roster.

I love Jana Vandyke and Chris, these are the hardest working agent's I know. I have worked Broadway/ movies/ tv. I have worked all over,and they are so polite and understanding to actor's. ps the vandyke agency is all about great talent. I'm sorry this person had a bad experience, but Jana is so down to earth where you can just pick up the phone and call her.

Jana has been my agent for about three years, and I have to say that I feel very fortunate indeed. She's extremely hard working,always submitting me for projects, and when I phone or go in to say Hi,I don't have to worry that she doesn't remember who I am!! I have to hold up my end as well, in terms of always studying, improving, and having a professional attitude, but I feel that I'm part of a team, and we all want to succeed. And that is something that I'm proud to be part of. Jana is not only a terrific agent, she's also a genuinely nice person, someone I really like and can relate to. So if you want someone who knows the business, will work hard, and is also fun to hang out with, then I highly recommend Jana!

I have been signed by various agencies since I first started acting in 2005. JVA is the only agency that has ever managed to get me paid work. Jana was the agent that got me my first Principal role in a commercial. She also got me my first national commercial. She was also responsible for getting me the role that made me SAG eligible.

I have no doubt this "so-called" truth teller person did not tell the whole truth. I've been with far too many agencies that are the epitome of their story. Jana is Nothing like this person described ... NOTHING! Her agency is only one of three SAG Franchised Agencies in the state, this is no small feat my friends. I was apart of Jana's talent pool BEFORE she got that Franchise. I sincerely doubt the truth person left the agency of their own free will, I assure you they were dropped for a reason. I have no doubt they also have an axe to grind. Mark my words.

Jana has never ignored me and always knows exactly who am I when I speak to her. I don't live in Atlanta. I'm lucky to see her smiling face once a year at the JVA picnic but she always knows me, she may not be able to name all of her talent but she knows each of us. I have never found a more caring and honest agent in the business. If you are willing to go the extra mile to make your auditions and show up on time for work, she is always behind you 100% and she will fight for you like a lioness when she feels you are being treated unfairly. It may take her a while to get to know you well but she always recognizes your face. Just make sure she sees your face and gets to know you. Be a can do type of person not the simpering I can't type.

I am happy to sign my name and answer any questions from any one with a different view point. Jana is the BEST Agent I have EVER met, barr none.

For the person who made the previous comment, all that I have to say is that the reason why you had this experience is because you are NOT professional at all. You probably did not take your career seriously, were probably not training and just felt like you needed someone to hand you something. Jana is a HARD WORKING agent. One of the hardest working agents that I have known since being in the business for 30 plus years. She cares about her people and her reputation. I am sure that your departure from her agency was not by your own choice, but your lack of your professionalism and not doing what you are suppose to do . You have to work just has hard as she does to really succeed in this market. She REALLY works hard and CARES for her clients and has a great reputation in this market. She is the very best there is, and a class act.

Plenty of perversion and sewage in the acting "business," and particularly in the casting end of it, but if one seeks an agent with actual class and grace, with whom one would feel comfortable leaving one's child, Jana Van Dyke is the sole source provider in the Atlanta market.

I have been with The Jana VanDyke agency since they became SAG franchised, but I know Jana from way before. I have dealt with many agents throughout my career and don't know another agent who is more professional, or works more than Jana VanDyke. And for the Icing on the cake, She is also the nicest to work with. I Love Jana VanDyke and the entire staff at The Jana VanDyke Agency.

I am not with this agent anymore (since 2012). It wasn't totally all negative, but this agent will ignore you, make you feel like you've done something wrong if you dare to contact her and rarely if ever responds to emails or calls. So if you want an agent who ignores you...well, you've found her.
