What Othes Say About Us

Just as a picture is worth a thousand words, so is every client testimonial.

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.

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.

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.

Carol Schneider
buyer and seller

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.
