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.

David Bentley is definitely your archetypal classic all positive biz. broker. Selling a business can have its moments, yet David was never negative and quite the contrary he was"the eternal optimist." Experienced in seemingly every aspect, he inspired confidence and was always just a call away. Another thing was that he always followed up on every detail and that's important. I would have no hesitation recommending David as a real professional in the game.
Dion worked with us as first business buyers exceptionally well. Over the course of the transaction, Dion kept us informed every step of the way. He was very responsive to questions and provided guidance as required for us as novice buyers. Dion's service was beyond expectations and we would not hesitate to recommend Dion or Verified Businesses’ brokers to anyone thinking of buying or selling a business.

Many thanks to Craig Campbell of Verified Businesses. We would highly recommend him to anyone considering selling their business in the future. Our business was a unique kind of retail enterprise, which is not for everyone. Other brokerages on the Coast simply failed to sell our business, as they did not take the time to understand its special features, and its ‘normal modus operandi’, which are key to communicating the benefits of owning and running a business such as ours. Craig bought us several qualified buyers in a timely manner, which led to us finding the right buyer. He negotiated the deal for us, put together the contract and helped us through to settlement day. In the end, everything simply worked out and we could not be happier. We are now able to move on with the rest of our lives. Thanks for your great service, Craig.

He told me that he'd been selling businesses on the Sunshine Coast for 20 years and that he had "the runs on the board". That was the main reason why I chose David Bentley to sell my ladies fashion boutique in Noosa. I've sold several businesses of my own but this sale turned into the most convoluted and complicated transaction, for various reasons. His experience, determination and dogged persistence is what kept this sale together. I gladly and willingly give this testimonial to David. He obviously still loves the thrill of the chase, even after 20 years. After seeing him in action, I now realise that he earns every cent of his fee. Use him! You won't regret it.
