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.

Clientele

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

Cost

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.

Clientele

Marriage-minded men and women.

Cost

$25,000 to $150,000+. 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

Professional matchmakers Janis and Carly Spindel

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

Clientele

Men seeking “The One.”

Cost

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.

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.

Clientele

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

Cost

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.
