VIDA Select (by Scott Valdez)
If you’re struggling to meet your perfect match and getting more frustrated with Bellevue’s single scene every day, VIDA Select is the solution you’ve been looking for.
VIDA’s matchmakers leverage the biggest source of eligible singles there is, which means you’re not limited to meeting people plucked from a limited database. That’s why the average VIDA client feels sparks after just 11 dates!
VIDA Select provides matchmaking services for both men and women, typically successful professionals in their late 20s to mid 60s who want to meet highly compatible, relationship minded Bellevue singles.
Clients can choose from a range of package levels and options. All prices are based in part on the number of hours that need to be devoted to your search every month, considering your match criteria, search radius, and other factors.
Basic matchmaking packages start at $1195 per month, and Premium matchmaking packages begin at only $1795 per month. Elite matchmaking service packages start at $2595 per month. With VIDA, you enjoy the flexibility of paying as you go, on a month-to-month basis.
That means you can pause or stop your service when you meet someone amazing, or if the service isn’t the right investment for you. You’re not locked into a long-term contract!
What To Expect
The decision to hire a matchmaker is a big one, and VIDA isn’t right for everyone. The process begins with a quick screening process. Next is a 20-minute complimentary consultation where you’ll learn more about VIDA’s modern approach to matchmaking.
Clients then meet with their dedicated matchmaker, who will get to know you, your dating history, your matching criteria, and more.
You can review a profile and photos of each potential match who’s hand-selected for high compatibility, so you’ll only meet people you’re actually interested in pursuing a relationship with. No more wasted time!
VIDA also offers an array of services like dating coaching and personal styling. All the expert guidance you need is right at your fingertips.
Love Architects (by Kailen Rosenberg & Andrew Hanson)
Founded in 2008, Kailen Rosenberg’s matchmaking service is actually headquartered in Minneapolis, MN. But she maintains an office in Bellevue, as well as 20+ other locations around the US.
Cost & Contract
How much Love Architects costs depends on a number of factors, like whether you work directly with her. Rosenberg’s son Andrew Hanson is the CEO of the matchmaking service, and also takes on clients.
Pricing also depends on how many locations you’d like included, as Love Architects offers local, national and international searches.
Packages range from $5,000 to over $100,000 to hire Rosenberg, or $5,000 to $50,000 to work with Hanson. A contract is required.
What To Expect
The first step is filling out the “pre-application” on the website. That costs $25, but the fee is donated to charity.
If you’re interested in working directly with Rosenberg, the next step is a $1,000 assessment. She’ll use the information from that consultation to create your ‘blueprint’ - an action plan of sorts to help you meet your ideal partner.
The assessment fee is $500 if you do your consultation with Hanson.
Matchmaking packages are customized to fit the scope of your search and other factors, and some memberships include invitations to members-only events.
Your matches are pulled from the Love Architects database and via scouting if your package allows for it. You can generally expect to meet 5 to 7 matches over the course of your contract.
Simply Matchmaking (by Ali Migliore)
Ali Migliore’s professional background is in event planning, but says wanted to be a matchmaker since she was 15. She started her own matchmaking service in 2013 at her husband's suggestion after several interviews with other dating services were unsuccessful.
Simply Matchmaking has two locations - one at 1400 112TH ave SE, and the other in Seattle. She also works with a network of matchmakers along the West Coast.
Migliore generally works with successful men as paying clients, while women pay an interview fee to be matched with them.
Cost & Contract
For women, there is a one-time $250 interview fee to be included in the Simply Matchmaking database. However, inclusion is not a guarantee you’ll ever be matched with a male client.
Simply Matchmaking cost for men varies depending on which package you choose. For instance, one package includes meeting 3 matches over the course of 2 months for $5,000.
What To Expect
For both men and women, the process starts with a 90-minute interview. Women are only contacted when the Bellevue matchmakers identify them as a compatible match for a paying client.
Men meet compatible women sourced from the Simply Matchmaking database, or via Migliore’s network connections. Introductions can be in-person or video date, and the arrangements are handled for you.
After the date, feedback is gathered from both you and the woman you met. If you’re interested in dating coaching, you’ll receive detailed feedback on how the date went from your match’s perspective.
Seattle Love Broker (Monique Le)
A former stockbroker, Monique Le designed her matchmaking service to help successful men meet highly compatible women. She also offers relationship counselling for both couples and individuals.
As the name implies, the Seattle Love Broker is headquartered in Northgate, but she works with Bellevue singles as well. She founded the service in 2014.
Le typically works with men as paying clients, and matches them with women who have applied to be included in her database.
For both men and women, the process starts with filling out a registration form online. The $25 application fee is returned if you’re not accepted.
Women then need to schedule a consultation with Le to be considered as a potential match for her male clients.
The consultation costs $100 if you do it as part of a small group, or $250 if it’s a one-on-one interview. Although she generally only takes on men for active matchmaking, women in some circumstances can pay $5,000 for what she calls “individual ongoing attention.”
For men, the package prices and options are disclosed during your initial interview. But you can expect to spend in the neighborhood of $15,000 for a 12-month contract.
What To Expect
The first step for both women and men is filling out the online questionnaire, then scheduling the initial consultation if your application is accepted.
Women who pass the screening process are added to Le’s database of potential matches. Men fill out a comprehensive questionnaire that helps Le identify compatible women.
You’ll then have a conversation with her either via phone, Skype or face-to-face, and discuss your ideal partner criteria, relationship goals and history, etc.
Introductions are arranged with matches from the Seattle Love Broker database.
