She gets on a client’s wavelength quickly and knows what they want in a perfect match.
Susan loves what she does and finds her career to be very personally rewarding. She said “We change people’s lives. Whatever is important to a client becomes important to me. Our clients are not looking for a surface relationship; they want one with depth – a real connection.” Susan and her team helps her clients find that initial “spark” for the right romantic connection – and keep it going.
She knows her clients well and only recommends compatible matches so they do not waste their time. Susan believes in quality introductions and is proud of her firm’s success. All of her clients can get a date – but have come to The Modern Matchmaker to meet the right date. They are selective, value their confidentiality and want a committed relationship. The Modern Matchmaker is the premier resource for dating in Pittsburgh.
