My peerspace experience with Suki and her team was nothing but exceptional. From the start Suki was jumping through loops while out of town to make everything happen for my booking. From day one setting foot on the location I was greeted by there property manager James. Who gave us a complete site tour the day before. Was fully prepared and walked us through. Also allowed us to give him any and all suggestion on room changes and what not and that he would take care of it before the day of the shoot. But the house being so incredible already, there wasn’t much to change. On shoot day, James was ready to go even though we were extremely early. He even helped us unload our gear as well as load our gear at the end of the day. I’ve been renting from Peerspace for a long time, specifically LA but I’ve never got a site manager like James as helpful and down to help us get that money shot at whatever it took. He’s was there and ready to assist at any demand we needed for the full day. To finish this off, the tight schedule we were on would not have been able to be completed without Jame’s helpfulness on site! I hope to rent this space out again, there space offers more rooms then I ever imagined. Thanks James and thanks Suki, you both were fantastic.
