Insider’s Guide To Houston Matchmakers [Including The Cost!]

Debating which Houston matchmakers can help you find your perfect match?

Narrowing down all the options can be tough - but not for you! This insider’s guide has the 5 best matchmakers in Houston, so you’ve already got a shortlist.

Starting with...

Sameera Sullivan, Sameera Sullivan Matchmakers

Matchmaker Sameera Sullivan

This elite matchmaker grew up in Sugar Land. Even though her matchmaking service is based in Portland, she takes on clients living in Houston as well. Originally called Lasting Connections, Sullivan has since rebranded her matchmaking service to reflect her name.


Sullivan describes her clients as men who are “elite, with high net worth and very busy lives.”


Women can join the database of Houston singles for free. Matchmaking services for men range from $45,000 to $250,000+. The final cost depends on whether or not you want date and relationship coaching as well.

What To Expect

Sullivan only works with a handful of paying clients each quarter. Men are matched with eligible women in the their database. Because Sullivan typically takes on clients who are willing to travel to meet compatible matches, they may not be local.

Sullivan and her matchmaking team also approach women at local events and sports games, and even places like Starbucks if there’s someone who seems to match your criteria.

Jill Kelleher & Amber Kelleher-Andrews, Kelleher International

Jill and Amber Kelleher

This mother/daughter matchmaking combo is based in San Francisco, but they offer dating services in Houston as well.


Marriage-minded men and women.


$30,000 to $300,000+. The price increases as you add more locations to your search.

What To Expect

Clients get paired with some of the 50,000+ singles in the Kelleher International database, or with Houston singles recruited by your matchmaker.

When she identifies a compatible match, you and your match will get a description of each other via phone. If both people say “yes”, phone numbers are exchanged.

All memberships come with 13 months of “active” search time, as well as 12 months' worth of “hold” time.

Janis & Carly Spindel, Serious Matchmaking

Carly Spindel & Janis Spindel

Another mother/daughter matchmaking duo, these two are based in New York City. Serious Matchmaking has an affiliated office in Houston as well.


Men seeking “The One.”


Women can join the database of eligible Houston singles for a one-time “interview” fee that ranges from $250-$1,250. However, an interview doesn't guarantee you’ll be matched with any of the paying male clients.

Membership packages for men who want to work with Carly cost $25,000-$350,000. Working with Janis ranges from $50,000 to $1,000,000 - making her one of Houston’s most legit millionaire matchmakers.

Membership contracts also include a signing fee, which starts at $65,000, as well as a finder's fee of the same amount. The signing fee is due up front. You'll pay the finder's fee if you date one of your matches for 12 months, get engaged or begin cohabitating.

What To Expect

Male clients can generally expect 12 matches over a year’s time. You’ll also spend quite a bit of time getting to know Janis and Carly, whether that’s via home visits, over a meal, or on the phone.

That's so they can get a better understanding of you, your relationship goals, and what type of person you're looking for in a long-term relationship. It’s a very private matchmaking service, so your matches won’t know your age, last name, or occupation prior to meeting you.

April Davis, LUMA Luxury Matchmaking

April Davis LUMA matchmaking

Formally called “Cupid’s Cronies”, LUMA's dating service is headquartered in Minneapolis. It has 16 other locations around the US, including a team of Houston matchmakers.


Both men and women, typically single professionals, can join as paying clients.


A passive membership is free, but only means your profile gets included in the pool of “matchable” Houston singles, You may or may not ever be paired with anyone.

A basic membership costs between $5,000 and $10,000. You also have the option to add other services, like date planning, style and image consultation, or life coaching for an additional cost.

What To Expect

First you’ll have an in-person interview to see if you’re a good fit for this Houston dating agency (and vice versa). If so, you’ll be assigned to a matchmaker who will also be working with 15-20 other clients.

Your matchmaker then searches the database for up to 40 “passive” members, and interviews the ones she feels are a good match for you. You’ll go on a short date with at least 3 of those matches, and you can exchange phone numbers if there’s chemistry during the date.

Scott Valdez, VIDA Select

Scott Valdez

Dating in Houston doesn’t have to be a frustrating experience, thanks to VIDA Select’s team of elite matchmakers!


Men and women in their 20s to 60s, seeking serious relationships.


The price of VIDA Select's matchmaking packages is highly aligned with how many hours should be utilized in the search for compatible singles. Clients can choose from 3 levels of service: Basic, Premium and Elite.

When helping you choose the right option, your matchmaker considers the overall complexity of your matching criteria, how many locations you'd like to search in, and other factors.

Basic packages begin at $995 per month. Premium packages start at only $1595 per month, and Elite options begin at $2395 per month.

What To Expect

Unlike the other elite matchmaking companies on this list, VIDA allows you to pay by the month and doesn't require a contract.

Instead, you’ve got the flexibility to meet carefully screened, high-quality matches at your own pace - whether that’s one or two a week, or a handful a month.

And thanks to our virtually limitless database of Houston singles, clients often feel sparks fly within the first couple months of service!
