You were very responsive, quick to nip any trouble in the bud, and well worth the cost. This was a long process. But worth it because you found us the right buyer with the right motivation and professionalism we were looking for.

Thank you so much for your patience and professionalism as you worked through the selling of our business.

This was an incredibly difficult and emotional transaction but you did it with class. You picked up this file from another Agent and so we had no relationship with you, but you did all that we wanted and more.

We also understand how difficult it was working with the buyer’s agent but your professionalism allowed the transaction to continue and ultimately close.

Andrew, I wanted to thank you for offering to continue your support of my quest to find a good company. Granted, this business situation is not ideal for you, and I know that.

My partner and I recently bought a business and I can honestly say that it would never have happened without Andrew’s tireless effort on our behalf. In sum, it took almost 8 months for us to close on the deal as we were not traditional buyers and our SBA loan was not ideal. Due to this, we as buyers and Andrew as a broker had to deal with situations that many buyers do not face.

Making it even more difficult, my partner and I were both first time buyers and had no idea what to do or expect! From day one Andrew was patient and understanding without being condescending. He walked us through the process, held our hands when needed, and stepped back when it wasn’t needed. I never doubted his integrity or his ability to safeguard our confidential information. He kept himself in constant communication and kept us going even when were considering giving up.

While he was hired by the seller, we never doubted that he acted in both our best interests and never felt that he was only there to get the best possible deal for the seller, at our expense. His response time to emails and calls is extraordinary, he is highly organized and educated on anything business related and the SBA loan process, and has a wealth of resources to find answers or information.

I would recommend Andrew without reservation and look forward to working with him again in the future. Andrew is professional, thorough, organized, and accountable. From conducting a business valuation through signing escrow documents he was deeply involved in every step of the process, providing an impeccable level of service at all times. I would strongly recommend him if you are looking to sell your business.

After 10 years of owning and operating a service company I was burned out and ready to move on. Luckily I met Andrew Rogerson at a business meeting and expressed my interest in his services.

From day one, Andrew was always polite, patient, and professional. Shortly after I listed the business with Andrew a buyer expressed interest in my company. The buyer was very demanding, had many questions, and required a lot of information from me. Not only did Andrew work endless hours as a liaison between the buyer and me, he helped me put the buyers requests in perspective and work through his demands. He always kept a positive outlook and kept things moving forward. He was supportive and thoroughly understands that selling a business that you built from the ground up is an emotional experience. It helps that Andrew has built and sold his own businesses throughout his life so he can definitely relate. He also really understands “the people part” of the business transaction, not just the transaction.

Some of the amazing work that he did:

  • Andrew was there every step of the way. He set agendas, attended, and moderated all the meetings I had with the buyer which helped me feel more prepared and comfortable.
  • He promptly relayed important information from the buyer and took the time to discuss any requests and made sure I understood exactly what I needed to do.
  • He worked endlessly to answer questions from the buyer for five months without any guarantee of a sale.
  • We had lunch and evening meetings to discuss the buyer’s offer and he helped me negotiate terms.
  • He supported me throughout the process but was really there for me during the last week before we closed. With the demands of running my business, the requests from the buyer, his attorney, and my own attorney, I was feeling very stressed and felt like I was sinking. Andrew came to my office and helped me with the requests from the buyer – he even took some of the work off my hands, took it home, and worked on it.
  • He was with me to the end and attended the closing at the buyer’s attorney’s office. It felt good to have him there because I knew he was looking out for me.
  • Andrew continued to follow up with me while I worked for the buyer for the required time to make sure things were going well.
  • I always felt that he was genuine and truly cared about what was best for me, every step of the way.

In the end, my business was sold for the asking price plus three years of royalties. I have been able to move on an start a new business that is more enjoyable than my last. If I ever need to sell a business in the future, there is nobody I would rather have represent me than Andrew Rogerson. I could not have sold my business on my own.

Thank you Andrew!

Thank you for all your assistance, guidance, and patient support through this process. While I initially struggled with “paying someone to help us sell the business”–especially since the ultimate buyer was an employee–I recognize that when we tried to do it on our own first, we failed!

Thank you for all your assistance, guidance, and patient support through this process. While I initially struggled with “paying someone to help us sell the business”–especially since the ultimate buyer was an employee–I recognize that when we tried to do it on our own first, we failed!

First and foremost, your extensive knowledge of the process(es) involved in pricing, evaluating, and structuring the transaction was a huge benefit for both buyer and seller. Having tried it once on my own, it is easy to see in retrospect where I would have done things differently now that I have seen your approach.

Second, you were extremely efficient in coordinating all the various puzzle pieces to fit everything together for a successful close. I was grateful many times to know that you were working behind the scenes with all the various parties that are involved in the sale.

Finally–and to my pleasant surprise–I see that you provided an external/neutral perspective for the buyers as they went through the various emotional stages that are normal for a transaction like this. I know that if you had not been involved, much of that shepherding would have fallen to me, and I know that I would not have been able to provide the excellent advice and guidance that you provided to our buyers.

Ultimately, the deal closed and that is what was important to us, and why we sought out the assistance of a broker to begin with. When you and I first met, I recall that you mentioned to me that it takes an average of 6 months to sell a business. I think that I told you we needed to beat the average, and as I count off the months here today, I realize that we did. You are to be commended for running a smooth, ethical, and professional transaction. I would not hesitate to recommend you to another seller or buyer.

Please keep in touch; I have enjoyed working with you and expect that our paths will cross professionally in the future. Kind regards and gratitude.
