  • So Klose Difference

    Despite getting significant media exposure, So Klose does not advertise heavily. We simply do our jobs well, and most of our clients actually come to us as referrals. Our clients appreciate our discreet approach to matchmaking.

     

    We focus on QUALITY, not QUANTITY. If you expect to meet the one from the mass market, you may consider to quit at this point.

     

    So Klose works exclusively with tertiary educated singles (about 96% of our clients have pursued university level education). We are a small team to cater for a niche market of clients, and our clients are not handed off to junior staff or assistants once we accepted our So Klose's matching procedures are fully ISO9001:2015 certified and complied under the strictest standards.

     

    We will get to know each sincere client about their background, family, job, goals, matching expectations, relationship history and what they hope to find in their next relationship.

     

    We respect both of our eligible male and female clients who are equally committed to the matching process and financially invested, which they tend to have greater respect for each other and will have more fruitful result. This is rare in this industry that tends to focus on men. Indeed, the successful and cultured men will also value the women will commit to the meaningful and long-term relationship.
