Peggy Bennett is the founder of Straight to the Heart Matchmaking, an exclusive matchmaking agency. As a native and growing up in Bellevue, Peggy has a natural instinct and passion for interpersonal relationships. Straight to the Heart brings Seattle’s busy professional singles together in a more personal and discreet way.
Prior to her matchmaking career Peggy spent nearly 20 years in the field of one-on-one consulting, coaching, recruiting, managing and styling for leading Fortune 500 companies, including Nordstrom. Her corporate experience and natural networking abilities makes Straight to the Heart a fit for discerning executives and entrepreneurs. For most of her adult life Peggy has been notably matching individuals up as a hobby. All the while, she was listening to endless stories from frustrated men and women who were highly successful in all aspects, except for when it came to finding love.
These stories, along with the joy Peggy felt when matching people up, attributed to her realizing that she needed to establish an agency that caters to those single working professionals. Thus, Straight to the Heart was born. Peggy is a Certified Matchmaker from the Matchmaking Institute of New York. This is the only school in the world authorized to issue a State Licensed certification in matchmaking. Peggy has been described as genuine, approachable, passionate and authentic. She does not believe in simply comparing two individuals’ interests from a profile. Peggy takes great pride in truly getting to know each member on a personal level. It is this genuine interest of well-being and straight forward approach with her members that sets Straight to the Heart apart from other matchmakers.
