“I had the business listed with another broker for several months with no results and no interest from any buyers. Then one of your past clients suggested I list my business with you and immediately we had many interested buyers. It was wise and creative of you to bring me several offers simultaneously. I finally decided to go with the perfect buyer for my company. You got me the price that I was looking for and you were tremendous throughout the whole process. You worked diligently to complete the negotiations, the due diligence, the SBA loan, and the closing in record time! Rita, you have the “people skills” I envisioned when I first decided I was going to sell. I appreciate your honesty, experience, and diligence. You did a great job and thank you again.”
Mike Korzep
“Thank you for making such an important mile stone in my life comes to fruition. My business has been my identity for years. After spending countless days and nights building my vision, it is incredibly rewarding to find that what you have built is really worth more than you dreamed. Your interest in my concerns, as a business owner, helped me to evaluate one of the biggest decisions I would ever have to make, selling my company. I appreciate your integrity with the valuation and viable sales price a company such as mine is worth. We listed the company with every asset in mind, but you were able to maintain the gross price with validity, and did in fact, achieve that. I am happy to tell you that the transition has been successful. “
Bonnie Thrush
“For any business person selling their business, I can say without question, HIRE RITA. Her devotion to getting the job done really helped me; I am a very satisfied customer. I have no hesitation in recommending her to anyone.”
