The Short Version: When Alessandra Conti and her sister, Cristina Conti Pineda, co-founded Matchmakers in the City, they had one goal in mind: to help create lasting love connections from coast to coast. Working between Los Angeles, New York City, San Francisco, and DC, the duo has paired clients — from the Hollywood elite to high-profile Manhattanites — with partners perfectly suited to their lifestyles. In addition, for those who need guidance on navigating today’s dating scene, Alessandra and Cristina’s hands-on coaching sessions deliver the toolset you need to find, attract, and build long-term, successful relationships.
Alessandra Conti and Cristina Conti Pineda have been matchmakers since their early days of playing in sandboxes and climbing on jungle gyms. The sisters found that they had a natural talent for making their friends’ childlike crushes transform into something real.
“We’ve been matchmaking before it was even socially accessible,” Cristina said. “Our first real match between our friends was in second grade.”
Their enthusiasm, passion, and instinct for love connections have catapulted them into a global brand sought after by elite New York socialites and the who’s who of Hollywood.
“We became incorporated six years ago and started in LA with two matchmakers,” Alessandra said. “We now have four matchmakers and an incredible staff that supports everything we do.”
With headquarters in Los Angeles, the duo’s agency, Matchmakers in the City, serves thousands of clients coast to coast from offices in New York, DC, and San Francisco. The idea behind this wide dispersal was to directly deliver the hands-on, in-person matchmaking magic of the Conti brand to clients in their own backyards.
Recognized as certified relationship experts by The Matchmaking Institute and Dating Experts Bureau, the Conti sisters consider themselves old-fashioned in today’s high-tech dating culture.
“We get the movers and shakers and people who are in a great place in their career,” Alessandra said. “But they don’t want to be swiping through thousands of people on a hot-or-not market.”
Clients can rest assured that this team delivers on its expertise in reading body language and identifying personality types to match their ideal profile.
“It is a calling, and we feel like we were born to do this,” Alessandra said. “We couldn’t imagine doing anything else.”
Alessandra and Cristina’s dating coaching is an engaging, one-on-one experience for clients to discover new tools and ways to release old, ineffective dating habits.
“We’ve helped hundreds transform their love lives through coaching by focusing on sustainable change,” Alessandra said. “All coaching sessions are personalized to target a client’s past problem areas and develop a plan of action for future relationship success.”
The Conti sisters have created flexible coaching packages to serve the needs of many clients. For $190, you can speak with these dating experts for an hour every month. A bundle package of 10 hourly sessions is $1,810, and four hourly sessions are $680.
Alessandra or Cristina can assist clients who are new to coaching or may need refreshing dating tips with a one-hour session at a rate of $200 or a 30-minute session for $100. You can select any of the options directly from their website, and choose a convenient date and time.
Financial Adviser Danielle shared her success on the sisters’ Testimonials page.
“I was really hesitant to use a matchmaker at first, but I am so glad that I took the plunge,” she said. “My date coaching sessions have changed the way I approach dating in my everyday. The personalized attention the matchmakers gave me has been amazing. I am being approached by more men in my everyday life and have more prospects than ever.”
To add to Danielle’s success, she said she recently got engaged and has plans to wed in the near future.
Becoming a Bachelor or Bachelorette member can happen in a few simple steps. It takes two minutes to create a free profile. The information provided is kept 100% confidential and is intended for the matchmakers’ eyes only. Within 48 hours, a team member will arrange a time to meet.
According to Cristina, the best way to keep in touch with your Matchmaker is through the Matchmakers in the City App (MITC).
“The app connects you to your very own certified personal Matchmaker,” she said. “Clients can enjoy a free meeting with their matchmaker via Skype.”
This session allows you to choose a membership option that’s right for your needs and budget. Basic Membership begins at $100, and Priority Membership ranges from $1,850 to $25,000.
“One of the many perks of being a member is connecting with our team of experts,” Cristina said.
The team is made up of hand-picked photographers, body language experts, date coaches, and stylists who are ready to help transform you from the inside out. This critically acclaimed team has been featured in major media outlets, including Vanity Fair, Essence Magazine, MSNBC, The New York Times, The Oprah Winfrey Show, Elle, and Glamour Magazine.
The all-inclusive membership package comes with face-to-face time with each match.
“We’ve met all our clients in person,” Alessandra said. “We do background, social media, and sex offender checks.”
Members appreciate this important safeguard that ensures all potential dates are carefully vetted. The matchmakers handle the hard work so you can enjoy all the perks of getting ready for your next date.
Matchmakers in the City boasts relevant articles and hot dating tips for men and women to use daily. Discover best dating practices, advice on sex and sexuality, and how to take baby steps in a new relationship.
Alessandra and Cristina’s most popular articles are also shared on Elite Daily, YourTango, Guest of a Guest Dating, and Fox News Channel. You can also be part of their thriving social media community on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.
“We love hosting the Matchmakers in the City Podcast,” Alessandra said. “It’s a way for us to tell our secrets about love and relationships to our most dedicated and new followers.”
Each week, listeners can tune in to hear the latest ways to take their relationships to a new level of love. The Conti sisters cover every topic — from first date dilemmas to moving out of the friend zone and vacation romances.
In addition to personalized coaching, hosting a podcast, and being professional matchmakers, the Conti sisters are breaking new ground in other areas.
“We’re both in the process of launching a date cleanse in the next few months,” Cristina said. “This is a 40-day cleanse for women who agree to stop dating for that time so they can heal and find the right man.”
This cleanse deepens the internal transformation for clients who experience the benefits of their dynamic coaching styles.
“I’m working on a program called Dating Like a Lady Boss,” Alessandra said. “We work with so many lady bosses that I knew there was a need for it.”
Lady bosses is Alessandra’s term for highly driven, successful women who are game-changers in their professional careers but need that extra support in finding love. She anticipates this workshop to be available for new and returning clients in 2018.
Matchmakers in the City is ready to guide you right into the arms of that special man or woman you’ve been yearning to meet. Due to the high volume of membership applicants, Matchmakers in the City will only charge you a $100 processing fee if you’re selected. And clients have found the duo’s energy and dedication to service is worth every penny.
“When you’re a Matchmaker, it’s not all positive,” Alessandra said. “It can be a rollercoaster of experiences because finding love for someone can be really difficult. But when you love what you do, and when you’re good at it, you can reap the benefits of all our hard work. We do this for love.”
