Eleganza/ WildTimes lower rates ... Asservissante/GG/AE raise them...
It seems like the Escort world is splitting into two camps.
Eleganza, after trying for a couple of months with high rates at $200 - $240++ per hour, is now running specials at $160 per hour.
WildTimes a new agency is charging introductory rates of $130-$140.
On the other hand other agencies like Asservissante, Good Girls and Angel Escorts, have raised rates in a bid to attract better girls.
Who is right?
My feeling? Let the market decide. Let the top SPs charge more, and the regular girls charge lower rates.
But what I have noticed is that a the quality of the girls at lot of the agencies that charge lower rates has been comparable, if not better than the more expensive ones.
It's not necessarily correct to say that the top sps get higher rates. There are many factors involved, and one of them is that lower rates often means a girl will work more, and higher rates means a girl might work less. I once knew a girl who was extremely popular at one of lower end agencies. She decided to leave that agency one day to join one of the higher end agencies at the time ($300/hour, $450/for 2 hrs). She returned to the lower end agency a month or two later. Her reason? She wasn't getting many calls at the high end agency. She was making more money working for $160/hr (at the time) and she wasn't spending the entire evening locked up in a minivan or in an office with other girls who were constantly complaining because they weren't getting enough calls. Job conditions were better at the lower end place, and she didn't mind making a bit less money (and sometimes more) in order to be in a happier working environment (which included not having that boss not sexually harrassing her all the time like the other boss).
And indeed, the market will take care of itself....
p.s. And quite often, higher rates might also mean the agency owner takes a bigger cut, and it ends up that the girl doesn't make that much money in the long run.

The better agencies know how to price their ladies and use a multi-tiered approach. The girls who get more bookings, charge a higher rate. It is that simple. Martin Of XXXtase has been doing it for a long time, Eleganza followed suit and now more recently Mike of GG has done the same. Girls offered on specials usually are not booking well or need more bookings than what they are getting. Otherwise they would charge a market rate.
I recall Martin of XXXtase pricing Brittany (circa 2010) at the then HDH price of $200 per hour with a minimum 2 hour booking, when all the other ladies were $180. This was before Brittany ever saw one client or booked one client. It is because he knew HDH when he saw it. She only worked for a few weeks and did not have many clients before she left. I was fortunate to have met her, one of the very few privileged ones to do so. She was the best looking escort I have seen in Montreal in the past 7 years.
In other cases, when a lady starts booking up, her price point gets increased. This is determined by demand for the services and manifested in booking out a day in advance. The agency MUST increase the price when a girl is getting booked out in advance. It is plain stupidity and economic insanity not to.
Martin of XXXtase is the rare owner who could predict demand before a girl even started working for him. Had he been able to hang onto Brittany she would have been wildly popular.

Yeah I remember Martin (XXXTase) did that with Beverly (now with GG) too, he charged $200 when all his other girls were $180.
She was worth it.
But frankly, I am not sure that all of the girls are.
Like Doc says, I suspect that a lot of the agencies that charge those high rates, have girls sitting around turning their thumbs in Tim Hortons all night...
I spoke to few girls at $180-200 and they were sitting in car waiting for calls...recession and market dictate price
We have decents girls at good price lately..Enjoy while it last
Personally 180-200-220 and even to the 240 mark(with CIM included in the price) usually don't change who i am gonna book. There may be exeptions if im short a bit, for exemple having only 440 in the pockets and i want to book 2 girls, then i got to pick one at 200, not more if i want my 240 one too. But usually that price range is ok with me. But when you go in the 300 or 2hours minimum range, then its a big think about it. If the girl is really that hot i may be willing to go to 300(did in the past) but i don't think i would afford many repeats anymore at that price. More like i want to satisfy myself and thats it.

This is definitely a big factor. A number of ladies have described this including one of the best known Montreal escorts of all-time. She left Asservissante to become an HDH elsewhere and was harassed and coerced at the latter agency, then returned to Asservissante because it was far better to work for a good man like Martin who had treated her very well and honestly at a lower rate.

We put volunteering ladies with no current appointments online and starting at a minimum bid of $80 we give you 15 minutes to make the highest bid and send her right over to the winner. GFE guaranteed.

It's a far better approach if it matches up with the proven quality of the ladies. I don't mean that you necessarily get less quality at lower rates, but in my view the ladies being priced higher should have an established reputation.
