Your key questions answered about our exclusive matchmaking and bespoke membership, and what makes us different to a dating agency.
What is the difference between YOU and a dating agency? We match to partner specifics and relationship goal, not a pre-set blanket number. Dating and introduction agencies often work to a pre-set number, where the goal is to reach the number opposed to "specific criteria" - we work strictly to "criteria", if you're female seeking marriage it's imperative you only meet men seeking marriage.
Why hire a matchmaker? Matchmakers are relationship experts, they spend eight hours a day ( and longer) searching, screening and selecting people to MATCH their clients. Which is no different to consulting a lawyer, a doctor, financial advisor, estate agent or any expert in their field. A matchmaker is an expert at finding partners for people, who share the same romantic vision, lifestyle, pastimes, who like you, are not willing to compromise on their values to meet just anyone single, but ‘that one person they cannot imagine life without’
How do your fees compare to other similar services? Our fees compare extremely well. Berkeley International FROM:£12,000 County Register FROM:£10,000, Seventy Thirty: £18,000 to £58,000. Sara Eden's "founder membership" FROM £25,000 which is equivalent to our top level service £9,000.
Who joins your agency? Since 2002 we have attracted, educated and successful people, from barristers, investment bankers to doctors, CEO's and entrepreneurs who live busy and rewarding lives, but, are missing that special someone to share it with. They join us to meet like minded people looking to meet someone for a committed, loving relationship.
Will I only meet attractive, successful people? YES, we guarantee you will meet attractive, educated professional people, however; physical attraction and sense of humour are sub-jective.
Can I have a FACE to FACE meeting just to ask some questions? We prefer not to, as meetings for both parties, even for chats are time consumming, and as I, Jill Rhodes Harvey work single handed, so I can work with every client, I have reserve meetings for those who have chatted initially with me about the service. I offer NO OBLIGATION phone chats with no limit on time, and decide if you would like to proceed to a face to face meeting, then fine, but if not,there is no hard sell. Most face to face meetings are between 2-4 hours.
Can I make enquiries on behalf of someone else and speak to you on their behalf ? No, this is a personal service and we only communicate with the person we would be working for. We will not enter into any third party communication at any point - the person in question must communicate with us.
Does age or height make a difference? The honest answer is yes it may do, but this is NOT down to the service, it's merely a reflection of how men and women select partners. Height: men under 5'8" and women over 5'8" may experience a few people less open to meeting them, but this is not set in stone, but it would be unprofessional not to cover it.
I'm of a specific religious faith, can you match me with a partner of the same faith. No, we're not a matchmaking service that matches people based on their religious faiths - there are several agencies that do I believe, so have a look on Google.
Can you definitley find me a partner, I have very specific criteria? We wouldn't answer yes or no before we had a chat with you, as we need understand what you mean by "very specific ". Let us have an informal chat and we can take it from there.
Do you accept International clients? Yes we do, but we only work with those we feel we can help, not everyone would be accepted. We only cover France, Italy, Spain, Baleriac Islands, Portugal and Switzerland.
