WHAT IS REL?
Richard Easton Limited is an exclusive matchmaking service. Try to imagine a private membership wherein every member is personally screened to be the very best in appearance, personality, education, values, and career; then imagine that every member is looking for the same thing: a monogamous romantic relationship. That’s REL.
WHY SHOULD I JOIN A MATCHMAKING SERVICE?
None of our members have difficulty meeting the opposite sex. Attractive singles meet people every day. It’s not about dating. It’s about a worthwhile relationship. If you’ve been looking for The One, then you know the best men and women are not hanging out on barstools or dot coms. The finest people prefer to be introduced by people they know and trust. That’s where we excel. We have personally introduced hundreds of happy couples.
WHERE ARE YOU LOCATED?
We are headquartered in Greenwich Village, New York and Berkeley Square, London. From these two strategic locations, we serve nearly 3,000 members in the US and Europe.
WHAT IS THE MEDIAN AGE OF THE MEMBERSHIP?
The median age for men is 40. The median age for women is 32. Men range in age from 25 to 67. Women range in age from 22 to 54. What is the optimum age difference for men and women? You tell us. We are happy to introduce the people you want to meet.
WHAT IS THE INTRODUCTION PROCESS?
After spending enough time together to know you, we will combine one part science with three parts intuition to introduce you to matches we think you will like on a physical, intellectual, and emotional level. We have been known to knock it out of the park on the first try. If we do not, then we will continue to define and refine your tastes until we get it right.
WHAT IS THE DATING PROCESS?
Every time we sense chemistry, we call each of you to describe the other. If we get the green light from both of you, we will obtain your availability and arrange your date for you. No phone tag. No hassle. We run a full service concierge, so you do nothing but show up for your date and have fun.
WHO IS ON YOUR TEAM?
We are a team of eight. Our bios and photos are on the Team Page. All staff were selected by Richard Easton for all of the qualities we seek in our membership, and the diversity of expertise necessary to complete any well-rounded team.
WHAT ABOUT CONFIDENTIALITY?
Confidentiality is our highest priority. We run an entirely paperless office. All information is stored on proprietary software within a closed system. We do not share your information with anyone except your dates, and even then we do not give out last names, email addresses, or employer information. Many of our members are very high profile individuals.
WHAT IS THE MEMBERSHIP FEE?
Women who are accepted into our club are guest members and do not pay any fees. We serve the women in our membership at our expense. Men who are accepted pay a fee according to bespoke membership. We are happy to discuss our fee options in person.
WHAT ARE NEXT STEPS?
Let’s begin with a conversation. We will then invite you to our offices to meet with our team. Kindly watch our About video, read this website, and then visit the Contact Page. Thank you for considering us.
WHO IS RICHARD EASTON?
A hopeless romantic, Richard was married at age 24 for 10 years and has two daughters. Career-wise, Richard founded bank EMBC in 1988, then sold the firm to a Meryl Lynch group in 1999. Richard then founded Wall Street advisory firm RJ Easton in 2001. With his busy workload conflicting with his desire to remarry, Richard decided to retain two matchmakers. Both were unsuccessful, but the experience was priceless. When he exited finance in 2007 before the crash, Richard parlayed his client side expertise to create a unique and different club—REL—for like minded professionals seeking relationships . Richard lives between Greenwich Village, New York and Chelsea, London.
