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.

When I decided to sell my business, South East Trading, I had no hesitation in calling Brett as he was the broker that sold the business to me nearly 5 years ago, and being so familiar with it, I knew he would be the right man for the job. From our initial meeting, Brett was confident about all aspects of selling the business and was confident he could get the result we wanted. After a relatively short time, we had a number of inspections which resulted in a number of offers but only the one buyer was successful. Throughout the contract process, Brett kept myself and the buyer well informed of what was happening and assisted from start to finish with professional and astute knowledge of the process. I would certainly recommend anyone looking to sell or buy to meet up with Brett.

Well done, David Bentley! I was very happy with the professional way in which you handled the sale of my mechanical repair business in Noosa. The first buyer you brought round to inspect my business ended up buying it. There was the minimum of disruption and everything went like clockwork from start to finish. I couldn’t be happier and will gladly recommend you to anyone who needs to sell or buy a business. Good luck for the future!

I have been working within the Automotive business for many years and have been looking around for a suitable business for a while. I contacted David Bentley by phone after seeing a mechanical repairs business advertised on the Verified website. David responded quickly and promptly to my enquiries and I went to contract after inspecting the business. I have never before purchased a business in Australia, so the process of buying a business was a bit foreign to me. I was very impressed with the way David handled the whole buying process. He recommended a very good solicitor and finance broker to me and between them and the bank, we settled the transaction on time with the minimum of problems. I’ve now got David looking for another mechanical business.
