    Booking: Eleganza vs. Devilish?

    Let me start off by saying that my best and most memorable experiences have been with Chris and Devilish.

    Having said that, it somewhat pains me to post my experiences, but I think it's important enough to share...

    Arriving in Montreal with a party of five other guys, we initially weren't sure how open everyone would be to getting an SP of their own. Initially, we had a pretense of a toy show in the bachelor's room, followed by those that so chose getting "private shows" of their own. With this in mind, I called Devilish at 1 pm. Chris answered the phone, and I was honestly surprised to hear him answer, and hear him answer so early in the evening. I told him what our situation was, and he seemed like he understood exactly what kind of situation we were in. He advised me to call back after 3:30 so that he would know exactly what kind of lineup he would have available.

    Shortly thereafter, in talking to the group, we became aware that no one was squeamish and that everyone wanted their own SP. However, they all asked me to handle the booking...

    I called Devilish back at 3:30, 3:45, 4:00, 4:30, and 5:00. Each phone call went straight to voice mail. I left messages on three of the calls, specifically recalling our earlier conversation and stating that our plans for the rest of the evening were on hold and contingent upon our scheduling of the SP's for that evening.

    I never received a call back or anything other then the direct to voice mail.

    I had actually booked Leah of Eleganza for myself much earlier, before my comrades revealed their true colors and stopped pretending to be prudes. Joe was answering the phone for John, and was very helpful. Even more, I wanted Leah's first shift for two hours. He told me she was starting at 7:30, but since she was booked at 9:30 already, he could only give me an hour and a half. Very reasonable, considering he could have just booked the two hour appointment and made up an excuse as to why she was late for her 9:30. I decided to try calling Eleganza for my five other friends. Not only was Joe able to help book everyone a visit that evening, he was able to book everyone at around the same time, so that we would still have the remainder of our evening free together.

    In addition, Joe gave me a call and let me know that Leah was running slightly late. I mention this because I understand and accept that girls running late are part and parcel of this game, but I've never gotten a call from Chris to let me know that the girls are slightly behind schedule. I certainly don't EXPECT the call, because I ASSUME the girls will probably be running late, but it's nice when the call is there.

    Let me also say that this was my first real experience booking with Eleganza.

    Everyone had a wonderful time.

    I never did get a call back from Chris. In fact, the next night, we were looking for some more appointments, and I called Devilish again... same result. Straight to voice mail.

    Which leads me to wonder... did Devilish fall victim to what plagues so many successful small businesses? That is, the inability to adapt to rapid growth, yet maintain the same quality that made them successful? I sure hope that isn't the case, because the Devilish girls I've booked have always said how much they enjoy working for his agency. Now, if the phone lines could just keep pace with the demand...

    Question Odd!

    Do you think it is possible that he took your request to be a crank call? I don't know just how busy Devilish is these days but with the recession your group would have meant a tidy little profit all around. Hard to imagine passing that one up in these times of recession. But, on the other hand he might have left a little sticky for whoever was taking over the phones while he handles the GOF business and that person simply ignored it. Whatever the reason, perhaps with a large order like that it was worth following up on. I suspect he just might post here in answer.

    Sadly, it`s not odd. The girls normally start at 7 to 8pm on average. They don`t know who will be working and don`t answer the phones unless they know they have girls working.

    Maybe that`s why Chris brought back Billy for daytime.

    Talking Maybe I can help shine a little light!!!! ...

    Afternoon Gentlemen;

    I am not familiar with this precise example of what happened with The Devil Himself, however what I can say is that Chris loves what he does very much, has an incredible reputation for customer service (in which I pay very close attention to his teachings to be able to offer you all the same), appreciates and values ALL of your business very very much.

    As Rook guessed (and darn well I might add Rook!), I am back and here to stay. The lines as of 7am to 7pm MON to SUN 365 days a year (yes im part machine!!) will be open and we as a company assure you and all other faithful Merb readers that ALL of your daytime requests, calls, questions and of course rendez-vous will be a stress free and very pleasurable experience.

    And or course, if I have the evening lineup at the time that you call inquiring about the night, can happily book your evening date as well!!!!

    I hope this helped...

    Cheers!

    Billy

    If we are specifically talking about Eleganza vs. Devilish/GOF, I have to disagree with you. I have booked girls several days in advance with Eleganza only to find out the day of my appointment they weren't working. This is no fault of John at Eleganza, but there is no doubt with me that this happens more with Eleganza than it does with Devilish/GOF.

    You are comparing apples and oranges unless you have special connection with Devilish/GOF and can pre-book in advance. On pre-booking alone a thumb up to Eleganza and a finger to Devilish/GOF even though these are all top agencies in Montreal.

    Nugie's experience with his special request is not a good indication of the performance people can expect from these agencies in general. Most calls to these and other agencies are not group bookings.

    well, i can't comment on pre-bookings, because i only do same day bookings, and this is old news, since i hadn't used eleganza recently. but back then... say, 1 year ago, i saw a lot of develish girls and verry few from eleganza, despite the fact i was calling eleganza twice as much as develish... the girls at eleganza never seemed to be available. so i eventualy gave-up trying... maybe things have changed, or maybe with prebookings, eleganza ARE reliable... but for same day appointments, at least in the past, it always was a near impossible thing...

    I'm not comparing anything, the title of the thread is Eleganza vs. Devilish and I specifically replied to panthere's post. Nothing more to it than that.

    I think the two agencies take different approaches when it comes to booking. Eleganza is more like 80% pre-booking and 20% day-booking, therefore you won't have too much luck when you try to book the girl the same day. Devilish, to my understanding, is quite the other way around, therefore if you prefer booking the girl the same day, you will be much more successful.

    Btw, I suggest we change the topic of this thread to "Booking: Eleganza vs. Devilish" since this thread is pretty much all about booking. Other aspects of the agencies such as services etc. are not involved in this thread.

    Just for clarification from my original post:

    With both agencies (this time), it was a same-day request. The only time I've ever tried to book someone more then a day out was the Legendary Marie-Eve.

    I doubt that Chris thought it was a prank call, because I told him I was surprised to hear him answering the phones again. He replied that it's been about a month now, and I told him it was nice to have him back.

    Now, when I called either of Devilish's numbers, I didn't even get a single ring: it went directly to voice mail, almost as if the phone was turned off. This led me to believe that either the phones were dead (unlikely), or, there were multiple people already on hold at both lines (very likely).

    However, when I called Eleganza, not only did Joe answer, but his girls were also all available. I don't say this to promote Eleganza, but out of surprise that their stable had plenty of openings, while Devilish's phones were (I assumed) so busy that they couldn't even answer the phone.

    As I stated earlier, I honestly haven't booked that much with Eleganza, so I don't know if there's a general difference (besides the $20) between an Eleganza girl and a Devilish girl. However, considering how in-demand Devilish girls can be, and how much easier it was to book (at least those two nights) with Eleganza, that $20 difference might be totally worth it...

    Is there something I'm missing as to why the E girls were ready and willing and the D girls were probably overbooked to high heaven (or hell, as it were)?

    Thumbs down And the Oscar goes to Devilish

    But I have a few words for Elegenza :

    1- Provide access to Merb members to your PM Box.
    2- Over the years should of learned a thing or two from Chris when it comes to exposure and visibility.
    3- Making contact in business should always be a priority along with people skills. John is an acquired taste that often provides frustrations to potential clients.

    Devilish bookers are the best in the business hands down.

    There never was any suspects at Devilish .

    Wink I like apples, I like oranges

    What is strange about the initial post is it talks about the kind of event I'd always consider Devilish to perform best at: a same-day booking for a "semi bachelor party" followed by individual "ad hoc/ dates".

    Seems Joe is getting high points for Eleganza when he is manning the phone lines. It also says something about the state of affairs that he was able to arrange so many same day requests for girls, at the same hour .

    I call Devilish mostly on impulse these days, because it seems many of their girls also work "on impulse". I have to say that over time, I have done quite good with Devilish with a wild same-day romp with a single girl and a few sizzling duos...

    What Eleganza seems to deliver better is the "dream girls", girls you are willing to see more often and control your "impulses" until they are available on pre-booking.

    This thread illustrates how quickly things change on this scene, at only two of the good Montréal agencies vying for an ever larger portion of the "market".
