If I could give a perspective client any advice, it would be, "Keep it local" and "Ask for Brian Judson"!
Thanks again for all your help! Prior to meeting you, I had contracted with a "national" agency. They sent someone out to talk to me, and gave me a valuation that blew me away. They made all sorts of claims about an outreach to returning military persons who are itching to buy businesses like mine, a nationwide advertising campaign, etc. they gladly accepted my $10k check that evening. All they did was place an ad on their own website, and on the rare occurrence that someone would click on my ad, they sent me a letter and told me to reach out to this "buyer". Most would reply back that they had no interest. Many never replied back at all. This went on for 4 years! I was expressing my displeasure with them to another business owner who confided in me that he too was trying to sell, and his experience was quite the opposite. He gave me your contact info. I hesitated at first because if a national company wasn’t working, what could a "small" local company do for me? Your confidence in your ability to help me was inspiring, but I was still hesitant. I explained how I felt "screwed" by the other company. Rather than feel offended by my feelings about Brokers, you heard me, and made me an offer I would have been a fool to reject. It wasn’t overnight, but you did find a suitable buyer and put together a deal I could live with. You did ALL the leg work, unlike the national company that played no part other than an internet ad. If I could give a perspective client any advice, it would be, "Keep it local" and "Ask for Brian Judson"!
You truly were amazing to work with and nothing but a delight!!!
I had the good fortune to engage Brian and his company in seeking out a potential buyer for our company. We were extremely impressed at his professional approach and keen attention to detail which ultimately resulted in the sale of our company. I would HIGHLY recommend Brian and his team should you be looking for an exit strategy for your business. You truly were amazing to work with and nothing but a delight!!!
Brian Judson was a breeze to work with.
Brian Judson was a breeze to work with. He was very hands-on and incredibly helpful, walking us through each step of the process. He was always reachable and responsive and has gone above and beyond to welcome us into the small business community in Savannah. We learned from a previous transaction how important it is to have a knowledgeable and experienced broker in these negotiations and Brian's expertise served us well.
