From the first meeting with Ian, I was confident he would be the right person to find the right buyer for our family business. Clear and concise in his assessment of our business, realistic on timelines and didn’t inflate the expected sale price to hook us in. Any info we needed to know we had instant access to, interested buyers details were efficiently communicated to us and negotiation stage very smooth. Would highly recommend Ian and his team to anyone looking to sell their business. ”
