Who we are

Elite Private Search is a boutique-style matchmaking service representing successful men and women in Chicago looking for their ideal match. All matches are hand-selected for our clients and we take care of arranging all the details.

Founded in 2009, Elite Private Search has been matching high quality, relationship-minded couples for almost a decade. Our Elite Bachelors and Bachelorettes have lives filled with friends, family, career, and travel. They also seek a successful and fulfilling love life. They are motivated to find a partner and interested in the highest level of personal attention. That’s where we come in.

We do 2 things: personalized matchmaking and arranging incredible first dates.

We recruit candidates specifically for our Elite clients by attending local events, utilizing social networks, hosting parties and meeting with referrals to find quality matches for our Elite Bachelors and Bachelorettes. Our approach to matchmaking is very personalized and great care goes into every match we create.

We want to learn more about you and the qualities you seek in your ideal match so we can coordinate an incredible first date. To get started, we encourage you to fill out a confidential profile.
