The Short Version: In 2003, Orly Hadida, also known as Orly The Matchmaker™, was featured in the Guinness Book of World Records as the world’s most expensive matchmaker. Top professional athletes, CEOs, and other elite clients are more than happy to pay. Orly’s exclusivity and boutique-style services (she doesn’t rely on computer databases but her own well-honed intuition and understanding of love) make her one of the most sought-after dating and relationship experts in Beverly Hills as well as across the globe.

When you’re a celebrity, professional athlete, or multi-millionaire CEO and the world’s eyes are on your love life, it can be challenging to connect with someone on a real, meaningful level.

That’s why many of the most elite singles use professional matchmakers to find a match. Not just any matchmaker will work, though. These singles need discreet, customized, and high-quality services.

Orly has been a professional matchmaker for more than 30 years.

Many turn to Orly The Matchmaker, who’s so exclusive that she was listed in the Guinness Book of World Records in 2003 for being the most expensive matchmaker on the planet. Her methods can be considered unique in today’s age of computer algorithms (because she doesn’t use them), and she 100% guarantees results.

“I am a third-generation, high-end, international one-on-one matchmaker. For 30 years, I am the only matchmaker in the world who handles only the 1% of the world’s multi-millionaires and billionaires,” she said. “Most of my top clients are celebrities, royalty, and top movers and shakers of the world. These top-of-the-line singles do not go online to look for their soul mate.”

She Ensures You’re Matched With the Crème de la Crème

The first question many people may have when they hear about Orly The Matchmaker’s Guiness Book of World Records status is: How expensive is the most expensive matchmaker in the world?

There are four levels of membership that potential clients can choose from. The least expensive is Orly’s Gorgeous Ladies National program, which costs $100,000.

“You will receive one year of unlimited introductions to legitimate women who are, on a scale of 1 to 10 with 10 being the best, perfect 9s. These successful ladies have jobs ranging from physicians to attorneys to business and entrepreneurial professionals,” Orly said.

“They are well-traveled, well-groomed, feminine, down-to-earth, natural, and romantic. Through our rigorous screening process, our women must be healthy and fit, non-smokers, don’t drink heavily or use drugs, and hold a college degree and above,” she continued. “These special ladies are ready and focused on having a monogamous relationship and will relocate for the right man.”

For $200,000, Orly’s clients will receive even more of an international reach:

“You will receive over a year of unlimited introductions to legitimate women who are, on a scale of 1 to 10 with 10 being the best, perfect 10s,” she said. “These women are true dream dates — stunning inside and out. They are the crème de la crème: beauty queens, models, actresses, and high-profile women. Your search will be ultra-customized. You will be able to choose any ethnicity and background, including but not limited to American, Asian, European, Russian, and Latina. You will have the luxury of pinpointing the exact age, features (hair, eyes, skin color), and personality you desire.”

This membership package includes unlimited photos and detailed background information on each match. Orly does all the work for you: She will make phone calls, plan dates, and arrange follow-ups.

Lastly, there’s a two-year package that costs $500,000 and is called Celebrity Introductions, or you could sign up for a $1 million lifetime membership.

Another way Orly helps her clients is through an advice blog on her website. For example, common complaints she hears from men is that some women gossip too much, wear too much makeup, or are too jealous. Men, meanwhile, can get better results by presenting themselves with confidence, dressing well, being aware of their body language, and making an effort to be witty, Orly said.

“Women love a man who is intelligent and able to make them laugh. If you can do that, you’re halfway there. Take time to practice witty banter with friends and family. It may feel weird or uncomfortable at first, but repetition can help make delivery easier in those higher stress moments,” she wrote in an article. “Also, remember, don’t force witty or playful conversation. Be present in your conversation, and keep an open ear out for moments when you can interject a little humor.

A Personal Service That Brings People Together More Organically

This kind of specialized service isn’t something where Orly relies on a computer database or an algorithm. Instead, she uses her years of experience in the dating industry to really find out exactly what her clients are searching for.

“I follow my gut/intuition. There is no online or computer matching,” she said. “I do one-on-one personal touch like the old days.”

Because Orly has been based in Beverly Hills, California, for decades, her network has expanded internationally and is filled with some of the most desired singles. She’s been featured in countless newspapers and television shows over the years (including being called “the Rolls Royce of Matchmaking” by CNN), and her reputation for success is what makes it easy for her to connect her clients with the people they want to meet.

Orly has been recognized by numerous media outlets because of her unique work.

“She draws from a large, yet select, group of serious marriage-minded men and women who seek mates with impeccable backgrounds, as well as compatible lifestyles, careers, values, and goals,” according to Orly’s website. “In the internet-driven world of the 21st century, with hundreds of online dating and introduction services, Orly still performs her magic without any computers or high-tech gadgets, preferring to spend time with each client on a one-on-one basis, in the old-fashioned tradition of matchmaking from the heart.”

In addition, Orly conducts serious background research on every client and potential match. She said it’s important to elite singles not to date someone with a criminal background, for example, that could possibly damage their reputation.

Orly Knows How to Cater to Discerning Men and Women

If Orly sounds like the right matchmaker for you, the first step is to go to her website and fill out her pre-interview questionnaire. It will only take a few minutes or so.

In this simple online form, potential clients are asked about their annual income, net worth, age, astrological sign, hobbies, educational level, life goals, what they would offer a mate, personality style, and much more.

Once the questionnaire is submitted, Orly will review the answers and determine whether she’s a good fit for your needs and whether you’re a good fit for her services. That is, if she doesn’t think she can help find you the partner of your dreams, she won’t waste either of your time. That’s because she guarantees success.

The important part of the process is to honestly and realistically determine and share with Orly your idea of a perfect match.

“If I decide to take you on as a client, there is no way I will not find what you are looking for,” she said. “I only introduce soul mates to one another. I am not a dating service, not computer matching. I am a high-end marriage broker.”
