Andrew discussed with us a range of businesses and options, and ultimately assisted us in purchasing a new business and embarking on the next phase in our business life. Andrew worked tirelessly between both buyer and seller, solving problems and eventually enabling us to reach a win-win situation and agreement on the new acquisition. Andrew assisted us right through the Due Diligence process, and ultimately to completion, often going above and beyond what you might expect of a broker. Even now it's common place for Andrew to follow the developments in the business and even to pop in from time to time, just so see how things are going. We would not hesitate in seeking Andrew out in future for both business sales and purchases. If you' re looking to buy, or looking to sell, I suggest you give Andrew a call!”
