There are a few general categories of matchmaking or dating services in Phoenix (or any large city):
- “Elite” matchmaking services
- Standard matchmaking agencies
- High-volume dating services
Elite – While we don’t particularly like the term, “elite”, these services are boutique and offer bespoke engagements at premium retainers ranging from upper 5 to lower 6 figure fees. Typically this kind of engagement is somewhat open-ended with longer terms available. They also often involve NDA and confidentiality agreements so as to cater to high profile clients.
Standard – Standard matchmaking agencies are geared to offer standardized services and fewer custom capabilities. Often, these services involve limited personal engagement and very limited expertise. Few standard matchmaking agencies offer psychology-based evaluations and tend to focus on simple compatibility metrics.
High-volume – High-volume dating services are a step above a dating site. They offer a semblance of a personalized process but generally do not employ experts with training or expertise in relationships. The recommendations are based on software or templated approaches. These services are not recommended for finding long-term matches and most measure success simply on whether you have a good couple of dates.
Roughly 90% of the agencies who advertise online fit within the standard or high-volume category.
Sameera Sullivan’s service fits primarily into the first category. While there are opportunities for lower touch engagements, Sameera has a history of working with only a small number of clients at a time so as to give them the highest possible level of attention. Additionally, with Sameera’s service, you don’t just benefit from an expert matchmaker, but also a team including psychology and relationship professionals.
Most of Sameera’s clients are high net worth or professionals at the top of their games. They’re successful businessmen, CEO’s and CFO’s of Fortune 500 companies, surgeons, investors, and others in highly demanding careers. Most of Sameera’s clients are over 40. Her team works with straight and gay men, both looking for monogamous relationships. Sameera’s clients and female members are all very selective.
