Sallyanne Louisa, founder of Harper Stein boutique dating consultancy, tells The Resident why UHNW gents are queuing to invest healthy six-figure sums in her expertise
Anyone who is anyone in wealthy dating circles has heard of Harper Stein, the boutique dating consultancy founded over seven years ago by Sallyanne Louisa. The mother of four and pioneering businesswoman helps UHNW (ultra high net worth) gents find true love. Her unrivalled success gives her possibly one of the most intriguing and exciting jobs in London.
But even if you are an eligible bachelor looking to invest in true love, she’s quite often fully booked, which is testament to her success rate. But what really sets Harper Stein apart from the myriad of London dating agencies is the level of exclusivity and commitment to success for each and every member.
Only taking on a select few clients at a time means that the team are able to dedicate a lot of expertise to meeting, profiling and personally introducing great matches. Additionally, Harper Stein use trained relationship psychologists to ensure that members get the best service they can – it’s not just left to chance with this luxury dating service.
‘Gentlemen of a certain calibre want to meet a genuine partner in a dignified and private way. We make that happen,’ says Louisa. ‘Our members are very successful, ranging in age from 40-80. Some are very well-known, others not-so, but they are all intelligent, sophisticated, authentic and, most of all, time-poor. Above all else, however, they are ready to invest wholly in a long-term relationship.’
It seems that these eligible bachelors don’t have time to waste and certainly won’t partake in the showcase that is online dating. But how can they justify the cost of Harper Stein?
‘For these men, they already consult the best experts in business. Their private-life is treated no differently,’ says Louisa. ‘If anything, it is more significant because until they find someone special to share the luxuries of wealth with, it can all feel a little worthless. We leave no stone unturned until they are happily settled down.’

In profiling, Harper Stein unravels everything about their members’ relationship ideals and question it, so they can ascertain exactly what is actually important.
‘All of our gentlemen are over 40 but are very varied in personality and sentiment,’ says Louisa.
‘Something that is similar, though, is that they have all worked very hard and really are enjoying the fruits of their labours. It really is very important to them to share that with a genuine partner who is readily available to enjoy it with them. If someone is focused on work and works long hours then that would often pose a problem.’
And all the single the ladies? Can they join too?
‘Ladies membership is entirely complimentary. There is absolutely no cost and we have many wonderful resources for women to enjoy, but we don’t proactively search on her behalf,’ Louisa explains.
‘If you are a genuine single lady who is looking for a life-partner, we would love to hear from you to find out more about you and your relationship ideals.’
What is perhaps most resonant is that these gents are not looking for the next supermodel, or someone many years their junior, as some might expect.
‘Ladies of all ages, from many backgrounds with different interests and their own life-stories seek the Harper Stein expertise,’ says Louisa. ‘If we know of a gentleman whom is a great match for you, either now or in the future, we will make an entirely complimentary introduction.’
