It’s been a pleasure working with Mike Van. I was too involved in my business to have the ‘skill set’ to sell it. Especially in dealing with an employee purchase. I am so pleased with the way he handled negotiations, documentation, and financing. I could not have done it myself. I couldn’t be happier.
CBS sent deals over that are spot on for what we are looking for. The team at CBS is sharp and understand the requirements as well as the process.
This transaction was very complex and yet John seemed to stay on top of things by making sure all parties were doing what they needed to do to keep the process moving along.
Thank you Josh and Michael… the offering book you prepared about the company we purchased accurately conveyed the great opportunity it truly is and answered many of the questions early on that I might have had. The investment meets all of my criteria.
We elected to work with your firm because of your strong track record and your reputation as trusted M&A advisors. We were not disappointed!… You truly helped us achieve our goals.
Efficient! Listener! Communicator! Those are the words that I have been using to describe Bob as our business broker!… Because he was so efficient in finding the right buyer for our sister company, we asked him to find potential acquisitions for us too.
The sale of our business involved some very difficult and lengthy legal negotiations as we dissolved a partnership. It was very frustrating for us but our agents Gary and Josh didn’t panic… Without them, we wouldn’t have gotten the deal done. A very professional team.
While our business had been on the market for a couple of years, it only took 2 months to sell after working with Michael and Karen at Creative Business Services.
John Foster took the time to sit down and help us put a realistic value on our business and property. It was less than a year and the business was sold and we were able to retire. The transaction went off smoothly and professionally.
Mike Van kept the buyer, bank and lawyers on track to get this complicated deal done to everyone’s satisfaction.
Thank you Bob for your guidance, counsel and advice during the acquisition process and through the closing. Your expertise was very valuable to both parties, Buyer and Seller.
Great experience working with Josh…He handled all the details including putting leases in place for current tenants to satisfy bank requirements. Professional and transparent each step of the process.
