Elite Personal Search Review

Elite Personal Search

WHAT THEY SAY: Elite Personal Search is North America's largest and leading relationship company. We have arranged over thousands of successful introductions.

WHAT WE FOUND: Fully screen members. 22 years of successful introductions. Exclusive selection of singles in your city. Personalized and confidential service. All members are prescreen by them, including a background check for safety. Their matchmakers match based on compatibility and core values. You will receive a personal matchmaker and confidant with whom you can consult on a one-to-one basis.
At Elite Personal Search they start with compatibility first and foremost. They match you with people with whom you share similar lifestyles, attitudes, values and goals to ensure that your relationship will have a solid foundation that goes deeper than just chemistry and attraction. This will improve your chances of having a long-lasting relationship.

You will receive introductions to new, per-qualified matches every 30 to 45 days or less. Your encounter begins with an introductory phone call to discuss the details of where and when you are going to meet. After your first date, Elite Personal Search will ask for your feedback, and in return, offer their suggestions which may be helpful to you. At the same time they evaluate your comments to better select your next match.

Additionally, if your first date went reasonably well, Elite Personal Search recommends that you meet for two or three more dates. Although you are meeting people with whom you share common values, it may take some time to get to know if your relationship has potential.

The Elite Personal Search Process starts with a potential Member calling an Information Specialist and making an appointment for an interview with a Program Director, or by completing the initial Member profile form on their site. An Information Specialist will setup an appointment for you to visit with a Program Director at an Elite Personal Search office near you. The interview process is an in-depth evaluation where you decide if an Elite Personal Search Membership makes sense for you.

After becoming a member of Elite Personal Search you can expect the following:
A private consultation where you will meet with your personal Matchmaker. At this consultation your Matchmaker will get to know you better and will develop an understanding of the special qualities and personality you seek.
Next, the matchmaking process will begin and you will receive instructions about connecting with the unique and exciting people that you will be introduced to. You will be matched with individuals that are balanced and counter balanced with your Key Core Compatibility Analysis TM as well as your physical criteria, personality requirements, hobbies, interests and much, much more.
You will receive valuable feedback after each match in order to continually improve your dating experiences.
As an Elite Personal Search Member you will be in complete control of your Membership as you pre-approve each and every referral before they are sent to you.

WHAT YOU'LL FIND: A matchmaking service with a very personal touch. Each member is personally screened and with a background check. Private consultation with your own personal consultant. Matching is done by a consultant using your Key Core Compatibility Analysis as well as other criteria you request. You pre-approve each referral before they are sent to you. Elite Personal Search will ask for feedback after each match to improve your dating experience and to improve your next match.

Message: ZERO STARS for these losers!!! Those who posted 5-star reviews have clearly been planted by the company itself.

I signed up with Elite at the end of April 2012. I paid $2500, thinking that it was time to step up my game from internet sites, and pay a little more for what I thought would be more personalized service and a greater pool of high potential dating candidates. I was absolutely hoodwinked! Bamboozled!

After my initial interview with Tina Lynchard and a few follow up calls with Summer Johnson, I received one match who wasn't remotely what I had asked for. Despite that, I decided to be open and agreed to a date; he did not. That was disappointing but I'm resilient and knew it was his loss given I'm a pretty cute, funny, successful career woman, and an overall great date :-). Now I realize he must have been one of the guys to whom Elite must have given a complimentary membership and who was probably on his 20th date because there are no men in Elite's database.

After having received that one match, Elite basically went silent. I received a couple of phone calls from Summer and Chalene (a manager who responded to one of my complaints/ requests for refund). After that, absolutely nada. Not only has Elite not initiated any contact with me, it has refused to respond to any of my calls!! This was a tough lesson to learn for me, but I take comfort in knowing that I'm a good person, and good will continue to come my way, even if it's not in the form of a few dates via Elite. Similarly, karma is an absolute B!... and these fraudulent folks at Elite are going to have to deal with the negative consequences of their irreputable behavior at some point. The universe doesn't like ugly. LMAO.

Message: This company is a scam. They make promises they don't keep - matches every 30 to 45 days, NEVER return phone calls or emails. High staff turn over. Buyer beware.

Message: I don’t know how they always manage to set me up with such great girls. But they do. I’ve been a member for exactly seven months during which I have had some great experiences. The first girl I dated actually became my girlfriend for about a month and a half. She and I weren’t so great at organizing things so we always had our match maker arrange the dates. We never got a refusal from her or never once were we forced to set things up ourselves because of lack of cooperation on the match maker’s side. Eventually we broke up, but I accept full responsibility for that. Everything this company does is great and I know that as time goes by each date will get better and better and the girls will be more perfect than the previous one. I’m not married yet but I think it’s safe to say that after dating the first girl for six weeks, my chances of happiness will rocket sky high with the work of this service.

Message: Here's my story.

After my divorce three years ago, I wasn't at all quick to get married again and was very unhappy. I got over it pretty well but still wasn't too thrilled about the possibility of me being alone forever. With that, I checked out this company. Lesa in the San Francisco office was extremely welcoming and sweet. Not in the way that gives you the impression that she was only interested in your money. That alone gave the will to sign up and pay the fee. I spoke with her for about three hours during a very comfortable interview. I told her all about my divorce, about my ex-husband and about the guy I wanted to meet. I told her about my childhood and about how I grew up. She even offered me coffee, cake, and other really good snacks. As I left, she patted me on the shoulder and said "I'll find you someone whether you like it or not". I left with a huge smile on my face.
About a week or so later, Lesa called me with a whole list of guys she found on her records that fitted my requirements pretty well.
The first guy, Brian was great. He was smart, tall, dark skinned and very good looking. We had a great time but still, we weren't for each other. Lesa called ME literally the next day ready to hear the feedback. Now that's good service. Anyway, she set me up with three more great guys who also weren't for me but she did her job very well. I went out with the next guy (Gary) two weeks later and he was perfect. The date lasted seven hours. Lesa called me again the next day with great news. Apparently, he really liked me and wanted a second date. Lesa set us up again a week later. Well, we eventually got married. It's crazy how a year before all this I was going through a really hard time and didn't want to get re-married at all. Now I'm married to the greatest guy ever.

Message: I was actually happy with the price of this service. I thought it was going to cost me much more.

Anyway, I signed up with them a little less than a year ago and I kid you not, the first girl they set me up with was the one. We dated for eight and a half months before deciding to get married.
Before I signed up with them I dated tons of different girls for six years.

This service changed my life instantly. My wife and I tell people all the time how amazing and successful they are.

Message: The company has a great reputation the Los Angeles community. I was a member for a 3 year period before getting engaged. I know around a dozen other members, all of whom are more or less happy. It seems to me that these bad reviews are coming from a very little number of disgruntled members. I think every large company has this issue.

Message: This company has a bad reputation, there are complaints everywhere. They promise things that they can not deliver, but will take your money anyway. Their contract is so airtight you will never get your money back.

Message: This actually works. I was doubtful at first due to my natural stigma against paid matchmakers. After reading some reviews I gave it the go. Boy does it work, a lot more productive then friend to friend recommendations

Message: I wouldn't trust the better business bureau. It is not a government agency. In fact it is a pay for play organization, as I found out with my own company.

I had a great experience with this firm. They were very helpful, friendly and I had a great repore with my Matchmaker. At first things were a bit rocky, I was very picky, but after listening and taking some advice I had a great time. I learned to be more open and found a really nice guy. I don't know where it goes from here, but that is really up to me.

Message: I think that any service could have disagreements with customers, especially in the dating and romance industry. The best bet is to check with the Better Business Bureau before signing any contracts.
