Top List: 5 Best Minneapolis Matchmakers (Includes Cost!)

Single in the Twin Cities? Working with a Minneapolis matchmaker is one of the best ways to meet highly compatible people. Plus, it’s a lot easier than online dating because all the screening is done for you.

Minneapolis Matchmakers

But with so many options to choose from, hiring the right matchmaking service can be tricky. This guide to the 5 best Minneapolis matchmakers makes starting your search easy!

Matchmaker: April Davis

Minneapolis matchmaker April Davis

Company: LUMA Luxury Matchmaking

Cost & Contract

$2,800 - $100,000 for a 6-month membership, with a one-time option for pausing your service for one month.

Clientele

LUMA’s services are designed for busy “professionals, executives and millionaires” who are looking for a serious relationship. Most clients are in their late 20s to 60s.

Previously named “Cupid’s Cronies,” LUMA expanded to include 40 offices in 17 states. The home office is just west of Minneapolis in St. Louis Park.

What To Expect

A boutique matchmaking service, LUMA's matchmakers only work with a limited number of clients - often around 15 - at a time.

Prospective clients can join the database for free, but that doesn't come with any proactive matchmaking services. Singles in the database only get chosen if they happen to meet a client's criteria.

As with most elite dating agencies, the process starts with an initial screening interview. During this talk, you’ll decide if LUMA is the right Minneapolis matchmaker for you (and vice versa).

If you decide to join, you’ll sign the contract and discuss the particulars of your membership package. Factors include the scope of your search, the personality traits and physical characteristics that you're looking for in a match, etc.

You’ll then be matched with members in LUMA’s database. If you opted to pay for the additional “Personal Search” option, you'll also be matched with singles either scouted by your matchmaker or identified as a potential match through LUMA’s extended network.

Dates take place either in person or via video call, After each one, both halves of the match call the matchmaker with feedback. This gives you the chance to get any pertinent feedback on how the introduction went. If you and your match feel like you clicked, you need to exchange contact info during the date.

LUMA Matchmaking offers additional services such as dating coaching, an informational interview where your matchmaker has the opportunity to learn more about you, and personal styling consultations.

Matchmaker: Kailen Rosenberg

Minneapolis matchmakers Kailen Rosenberg & Andrew Hansen

Company: Love Architects

Cost & Contract

$5,000 - $100,000+, contract required.

Clientele

Love Architects accepts both men and women as paying clients. They generally help successful, accomplished singles looking for “The One.” Headquartered in Minneapolis, Love Architects also works with singles in 29 other cities around the US.

What To Expect

A matchmaker and life coach for over 20 years, Kailen Rosenberg co-founded this exclusive Minnesota matchmaking service with her son, Andrew Hansen. He also co-founded AH Love Design, a division of Love Architects.

Potential clients start with a pre-screening, which costs $25. According to their website, these Minnesota matchmakers donate that fee to the Ronald McDonald House.

If the matchmaking service seems like a good fit on both sides, the next step assesses your relationship history and goals, what type of person you’re hoping to meet, etc. The assessment fee is $1,000 if you work with Kailen, $500 if you work with her son.

Matchmaking packages can include a local, national or international search, with the price going up accordingly. Each client gets a customized search, so the cost of your particular package depends on all the factors discussed during your assessment.

Matches come from within the Love Architects database, and also via scouting. Depending on your membership package, you can also meet singles at events hosted by Love Architects.

$25,000 - $1,000,000, clients sign a 1-year contract.

Clientele

Per this mother/daughter matchmaking duo, the typical Serious Matchmaking client has a net worth of over $10 million and an annual income north of $1 million.

These elite matchmakers generally only work with men as paying clients. Women can join the database for $250, but must first pass the rigorous screening process. Serious Matchmaking is based in NYC, but they have a presence in the Twin Cities area along with several other major cities around the US.

What To Expect

Janis and her daughter Carly Spindel have been matchmaking for over 25 years. Potential clients meet with either Janis or Carly and discuss everything from relationship goals to past dating history and current lifestyle.

If both you and your matchmaker decide the service is a good fit, you can expect to meet at least one match each month for the duration of your contract. The scope of the search and other details vary according to the details of your contract.

You'll either meet matches pulled from the Serious Matchmaking database or introduced to women the matchmaking team scouts on your behalf.

Matchmaker: Susan Trombetti

National matchmaker Susan Trombetti

Company: Exclusive Matchmaking

Cost & Contract

$7,500 - $250,000+, contract required.

Clientele

As implied by the name, this upscale matchmaking service caters to professional, affluent singles seeking similarly accomplished matches. Like Janis Spindel, this elite matchmaker is based on the East Coast. Susan Trombetti calls Maryland home.

But Trombetti’s national presence includes Minneapolis/St. Paul, making her a Minnesota matchmaker worth checking out. Trombetti generally works with men seeking long-term relationships.

What To Expect

The first step in the matchmaking process for prospective clients involves an initial screening. A screening costs $500 in person, or $350 if done via video chat.

If you decide to hire Trombetti as a matchmaker, you’ll work out the details of your contract, including the scope of your search for matches, your ideal partner criteria, etc.

Matches are curated from the Exclusive Matchmaking database, or could be scouted in your area depending on your membership package. After each introduction, you can call your matchmaker to discuss feedback as to how the conversation went. If needed, you can opt for dating coaching.
