I recently used Verified Businesses to sell my business. David Bentley was my broker, he explained everything perfectly, was always available to discuss matters and action everything immediately. David is incredible at getting answers quickly and moving things in the right direction. He does not just accept someone not picking up his call - he fights to get things sorted quickly - this is great as a seller. I was kept up to date with the sale of my business regularly and was not made to feel uncomfortable when I did call constantly! He is highly experienced, and that experience benefits his sellers massively. I also had the pleasure of dealing with Dion, who was also quick to respond and keep me up to date. Overall, I couldn't be happier with the way my business sale was dealt with - my broker dealt with everything from start to finish, everything he said would happen, did. He even chased around on many matters, which saved a lot on solicitors fees. I would not hesitate to contact David if I needed to sell again, he did whatever it took to make my sale go through smoothly, going above and beyond.

We recently engaged Creina Holland, to sell our Ice-cream Bus , which was established for over 30 years at Edmundi and Fishermans Road Markets. We had worked and owned it for 8 of those years. Creina was extremely helpful and professional and was able to present us with buyers that she had already qualified as serious contenders and not just ‘’tyre kickers’' We also had other jobs so were time poor, yet she was able to factor in all this so the buyer and us we not inconvenienced. In my business, Menuart, I was aware that several of my clients had had bad experiences with either purchasing direct from the Owners, or through other brokers. Figures weren’t true and equipment not up to standard. On her guidance and advice we presented a business with true figures, charts to show highs and lows of Market trade and all equipment working and useable. Our whole process was completed expeditiously and we were then able to purchase a home from our profits, a situation we never considered would be possible. Our Buyers were given the full picture and this established a great relationship which we still enjoy. I would definitely, and do, recommend Creina to anyone who is either considering buying or selling a Business.

“We sold our business with Craig Campbell of Verified Businesses recently and we must say we are extremely pleased with Craig's service, performance and professionalism. I found that he gave us good feedback and advice along the way, and was very honest and reliable from start to finish. We had to move our business quickly and for a good price. Craig's marketing generated numerous buyers and three inspections, and in the end he negotiated us the right price for our business. We are consequently Very Happy. Settlement then occurred within a tidy time frame, and we would have no hesitation recommending him to anyone considering selling their business.

I am happy to write to pass on my thanks to Brett Barton for selling my business, Pro Computers. Brett and I have known each other for 15 years now since he had his business in Mooloolaba and I was his IT Technician. The relationship continued throughout my ownership of the business and Brett's transition into business sales. I found his knowledge and level of professionalism to be of a very high standard. His communication was second to none and I have no worries about recommending Brett to anyone who is looking to sell their business. Thanks, Brett, and all the best! Let's catch up for a beer soon.

My wife and I were looking for over a year at a suitable distribution business to buy. During that time we dealt with several business brokers in our enquiries. From the first initial contact with David we found him pleasant,easy to talk with and professional. The process Verified uses to determine the success of a business and consequently rate it is quite impressive. Every other going concern we looked at under scrutiny - eventually failed in our own check list of criteria analysis. David's business opportunity he presented us with I could hardly fault in any aspect - it was almost like he had done our own homework for us. We subsequently went on to purchase the business and are both very happy with it. With any risk capitol venture everyone should,with out fail - do their own due diligence on the potential target in their sights. Verified assisted us greatly in this exercise and I highly recommend David Bentley as a valued broker to anyone seriously looking at buying a good business.
