Valenti International: The Art of Matchmaking

Love has been in the air at Valenti International for 27 years. Using her strong intuition in business, personal connections and philanthropy, Rancho Santa Fe-based Matchmaker Irene Valenti has made more connections than she can count.


The concept of matchmaking brings with it a certain mystique – and many people are curious about how the process works. The Valenti Experience does not involve computer surveys or texting.  It is deliberately low-tech and traditional.  There are no emojis and you don’t swipe right. "This is not a dating service,” says Ms. Valenti. “It’s a serious business.”


The professional Valenti matchmaking team, including on-staff psychologists, meets and gets to know each client personally.  Each client’s preferences, personal tastes, traditions, core values, and character-- as well as romantic compatibility--are synthesized into Valenti’s unique matchmaking formula. The Valenti Experience is designed for those with busy, successful lives who are now ready to invest in their personal success.


The process begins with a getting-to-know-each-other session. During this time, clients not only gain insight into themselves, but also decide whether Valenti International is the right fit for their needs. Contracts are custom tailored to the client’s individual goals and expectations.  Valenti does not offer cookie cutter services or pricing. The process is exceptionally personal – with an unbreakable commitment to every client’s privacy.


A professional administrative staff, including an in-house concierge, is on hand to help clients throughout the matchmaking process. Details are planned and organized by the Valenti staff.  Even details like selecting the perfect table at the perfect restaurant and sending just the right flowers are not overlooked.  A client’s request is never more than a phone call away, and someone on staff is always available.  Many clients have unfettered access to Ms. Valenti herself - including phone calls on Sundays. Almost 100% of Valenti’s business is through referrals from clients.  “Clients become like family to us, and we are with them every step of the way. It is our deep understanding of each client’s unique story that has resulted in countless lifelong partnerships,” says Valenti.


The company attracts a clientele of exceptional individuals – they are attractive, successful in their own right and hail from all 50 states and around the globe. With 27 years of successful matchmaking under their belts, the Valenti team believes that the more you have to offer, the harder it is to find that special relationship. Ms. Valenti adds, “Our services are unique and may not be the right fit for everyone, but very often we are referred to friends of clients who find that we are just what they have been looking for.” Ms. Valenti understands that finding love is today’s world is becoming more difficult than ever, but she believes there is someone for everyone.  Never give up on Love!
