3 Best Raleigh Matchmakers (And How Much They Cost)
You’ve decided to hire a personal matchmaker - now you've just got to narrow down your options.
Our team of matchmaking experts has created this guide to help singles in Raleigh find the best matchmaker.
With our industry experience dating back to 2009, we're well acquainted with the major - and minor - players. We’ve written 200+ matchmaking service reviews, leveraging our in-depth knowledge of the industry and keen understanding of what clients value most.
From how much they cost to how long they’ve been in business, this list of the 3 best Raleigh matchmakers will help you find the perfect one for you!
A high-end matchmaking service with an extensive reach, Enamour is perfect for accomplished singles who want a tailored approach to finding their ideal partner.
Enamour clients are typically successful, well-traveled, highly accomplished singles in their 30s+.
Matchmaking service begins around $20,000.
What To Expect
You'll meet matches carefully selected from Enamour's curated, invitation-only database, or identified via the extensive network of scouts. Enamour's team also uses high-tech recruiting methods to pinpoint compatible singles from a wide variety of offline and online sources.
Before being presented for approval, every potential match is carefully vetted via an in-person or video screening process. Your matchmaker will get to know you during the information gathering phase, using those details to ask all the delicate questions that get at the heart of long-term compatibility.
And after each introduction, your matchmaker will follow up with both you and your date. This feedback not only gives you valuable insights into your dating journey, it also helps your matchmaker fine-tune the match selection as needed.
In addition to matchmaking, Enamour offers complementary services such as personal styling, professional photography, coaching, and image consulting.
Founded in 2009, VIDA Select's matchmakers can help singles dating in the Triangle area or throughout the Carolinas.
VIDA’s dating pool is virtually unlimited, which means you’re not limited to meeting singles from a small Rolodex like you would be with some other Raleigh matchmakers. That’s why the average VIDA client starts exploring a promising relationship within the first couple months of service!
Both men and women can become paying clients. A VIDA client is typically successful, career-minded, and seeking a serious relationship and/or marriage.
VIDA Select offers a spectrum of matchmaking packages across 3 levels of service: Basic, Premium and Elite. Basic packages start at $1195/month, Premium options begin at $1795/month and Elite packages start at just $2595/month.
And unlike the other professional matchmakers on this list, VIDA doesn’t use lengthy contracts. Instead, you pay monthly, for as long as you’d like your matchmaker to actively search for your ideal partner.
Package cost highly correlates with the total number of hours that should be dedicated to finding perfectly compatible matches for you, so factors like your list of "must haves in a match" are taken into account.
Because you’re not committed to a long-term contract, you can pause, end, or restart your matchmaking service as needed.
What To Expect
To see if VIDA is a mutual fit, simply schedule a quick, free, and confidential phone call with a matchmaker by clicking here.
If you’re selected as a client, the next step is a more detailed interview where your dedicated matchmaker can get to know you and your idea of a perfect partner.
She’ll then find highly compatible singles, and you’ll review photos and a profile of each one. You can pre-approve all your matches before a date is scheduled, so every person you meet has soulmate potential.
Simona Fusco, Perfect 12
She’s not a Durham native, but Simona Fusco offers her elite matchmaking services in the Raleigh-Durham area. A model and actor who discovered she also has a talent for professional matchmaking, it’s no surprise she’s based in Los Angeles. She launched her company in 2005.
The women she takes on successful men in their 30s to mid-60s, and women in their 20s to 50s.
It’s free for women to have an “Affiliate” profile in Fusco’s database, however, there won’t be any guarantee of being matched with a paying client. All affiliates must be interviewed and pass the screening process.
Men start with a $2,500 initial consultation and have 3 membership levels to choose from. Fusco’s pricing is confidential, but you can generally expect to pay somewhere between $25,000-$250,000, depending on your relationship goals and criteria.
What To Expect
Paying clients are matched with some of the 200,000 or so “Affiliates” in Fusco’s rolodex, or with compatible singles identified by her team of recruiters. If you purchase a higher level package, you can identify the cities you’d like to date in, and her scouts will get to work.
