The old adage that finding a life partner is difficult has been supported by an increased demand for dating apps and matchmaking services. For anyone who has experienced the matchmaking process, finding a person to date is time-consuming and challenging.
Cinqe Matchmaking – led by power duo Erica Arrechea and Annie Garmendia — has disrupted the market to enable busy singles to find matches who suit them while guiding them to the first date and help them thrive beyond.
“We have a team of exceptionally talented matchmakers, each member bringing a diverse skill set to the trade,” Arrechea told California Business Journal. “Having a strong and experienced team is crucial to the success of any business, and we work hard to cultivate a team set to redefine the matchmaking industry.”
The Cinqe Matchmaking team consists of seven women who prioritize bringing together the largest network of high-quality singles with background information, delving into personal interests and outlook on life to ensure their matches rest solid common ground during the first date and beyond.
“Cinqe is an unrivaled singular brokerage that provides a haven for matchmakers truly feeling at home,” Arrechea says. “Such an environment is essential to nurture talent that can establish a platform that allows for growth and sharing of expertise, which building blocks are essential for our clients to receive outstanding customer service.”
Unlike traditional agencies, Cinqe’s business model fosters and promotes the individual brands of its matchmakers, encouraging them to engage in personal development to empower their success as they embrace their unique voices and style.
“We are a brokerage that exclusively has the best dating experts in our elite circle with exceptional talent and unparalleled expertise,” Arrechea says. “I like calling Cinqe ‘The Sanctuary for Matchmakers.’”
This line of work is a suitable career change — for anyone. Arrechea believes that unique individuals can blend matchmaking with their existing career experience if they want to pursue a new venture.
“We created matchmaker mavericks who receive the backing of a robust brand, expert public relations operations, and tailored marketing strategies to help them set up a rewarding and fulfilling career,” Garmendia says. “Helping our team build their brand is key to their success, which benefits our clients in their partner-seeking challenges.”
Arrechea and Garmendia banded together based on their shared vision to create the most sought-after matchmaking agency that embodies women’s empowerment and celebrates genuine connections. Their experience fuels Cinqe.
Arrechea, well-known as the Single Billionaire’s matchmaker, is an entrepreneur with a background in tech investments. She describes herself as a “shark in the business world with a cool girl personality” who is also “fluent in billionaire language.” Garmendia is a world citizen of British origin with a finance and technology background and particular expertise in start-ups.
As matchmaker businesses pop up in a maturing but yet unsaturated market, the powerhouse leading duo of Arrechea and Garmendia says only a sliver of these businesses perform at the high level.
While California has 1.5 million real estate agents, only a few matchmakers are active in the region.
“New and innovative players have the potential to do well in the market,” Garmendia says. “With the right approach and focus on providing high-quality services, matchmakers can stand out and flourish.”
Cinqe’s leadership team are thought leaders in the dating market, which gives them a unique position for finding singles.
“Our matchmakers are the stars of our company — our partners work toward helping our elite clients find the best possible matches,” Arrechea says. “We provide exceptional services to high-end clients looking for long-term relationships via personalized experiences with a matchmaker who understands their needs and desires.
“Striving for a great customer experience, our matchmakers are present from the initial consultation to the final match by offering coaching services 24/7.
Finding the perfect match is not only about attraction but sharing interests, values, and goals in life. “Finding a life partner is a daunting challenge, but it does not have to be,” Arrechea concludes. “At Cinqe, we understand our clients’ challenges and we develop unique solutions to help them find the perfect match. We personalize matchmaking services and we make finding a life partner as seamless and stress-free as possible.”
