A trained art historian and a twenty-year veteran of the film industry, Cindi Osborn has curated museum collections throughout the U.S., worked as a stylist and location scout and produced award-winning commercials. In 2006, Cindi founded Mint Locations as a way to put her unique blend of industry experience and design expertise to work.
Now among the top location services in the Bay Area, Mint Locations represents over 300 remarkable homes and estates to host your very special occasion, film the next blockbuster or wrap the perfect catalogue shoot. Cindi's style, determination and integrity, along with a true joie de vivre, have made her a sought-after and trusted locations resource.
Currently she lives with her husband, a creative director, and her towhead tween son in two towns worthy of postcards - on the waterfront in Sausalito, California and in the mountains of Sun Valley, Idaho. When she's not managing Mint, she's spending time with her family and enjoying the views.
Born and bred in Idaho, Wrenn is a mountain girl with just the right amount of high altitude attitude to keep it real. She boasts a degree in Business from Arizona State, a keen eye for great style and an old soul - smarts, sass and sweets – our gal has got it all. As our Director of Operations extraordinaire, she works 365/24/7 to keep our locations locked in, our clients feeling like rock stars and our homeowners pampered – all on time and on budget.
When she’s not working (which is rare) you’ll find her - twinkle in her eye with a sunshine smile - riding the slopes with her golf swinging, fire fighting husband, or embracing all the adventure that is Sun Valley, with an Idaho potato vodka martini within reach.
Endless energy, die-hard determination, contagious candor and over the top optimism are her trademarks. Meet Doreen Cappelli, our Maven of Mintspiration is the right lady at the right time as we open the doors to our exclusive locations for extra special social and corporate gatherings. Doreen wields a cornucopia of experience to bring our vision for our Event Venues to life. Throughout her career she has been a connector with a knack for progressive and profitable relationships. Bringing together agencies, advertisers, and influencers in fresh and progressive partnerships that won the hearts of consumers from coast to coast. Now, at Mint Locations, our savvy matchmaker Doreen is the perfect partner to our tastemakers and their properties, finding the right fit for each and every occasion – love is in the air!
While she hails from Italian roots, Doreen is a California girl at heart. Equally at ease sipping wine in NorCal with her boyfriend or shopping in SoCal with her sisters, she is always in the know with who, what and wear!
We happen to be three of the best women in the biz. With decades of industry knowledge, an extensive location portfolio and award winning customer service, we promise you’ll feel right at home.
Cindi at Mint Locations did a fantastic job and made the photo shoot at my Tahoe house go off without a hitch. The house was rented for five days and when they were done they put everything back in its place, cleaned up after themselves and left the property spotless. They had a keen eye for the beauty of the house and its surroundings, and the photos in the (Frontgate) catalog are gorgeous! I am looking forward to many more transactions with Mint Locations. They are the best and so wonderful to work with. I highly recommend them!
Mint has the best caliber and selection of locations. They vet their locations, homeowners & clients so each party understands & aligns on expectations ahead of the shoot. Having successfully worked with Mint for 15 years, this thoroughness ensures a seamless photo shoot for all. Cannot recommend Mint enough.
Working with Mint on our recent Tempur Pedic shoot was a very personalized experience. Cindi works with only high-quality homes and owners that are truly interested in providing crews with great shooting experiences. We were beyond pleased with the locations we used from Mint and will very certainly be back again!
Scorpio in Corona Del Mar is beyond beautiful, even prettier in person! Mint is so wonderful to work with, I've worked with them many times and it's why I keep coming back. So helpful and accommodating and always makes the process super seamless. Would definitely recommend!
Cindi Osborn runs a first class operation, bringing in the best clients and vendors and making the process of hosting events at our property seamless and worry-free. Mint Locations is our first choice for event planning, hands down.
