I found Katrina to be knowledgeable, organized, thorough, and her follow-up was excellent. She was a pleasure to deal with and I would recommend her highly

–Brett Coleman, Owner
Mercedes Benz of Reno

Katrina is a very professional tenacious lady. Does everything she says and much more. A very positive experience.

–Stan & Lynn Kinder Former President & Vice President
Sierra Chemical Company

Katrina demonstrated at every step of the way thorough knowledge of her business as well as her technical expertise. Her patience as well as tenacity was helpful in establishing very early on a relationship based on mutual trust and respect.

–Terry Vander Ploeg, Heinz Roesch,
Dave Ogren Buyers & Seller
– Omed of Nevada, LLC

Your hard work, professionalism, and tenacity really made this deal happen. I know it was not an easy accomplishment. Every step you were great from the start with prospecting to the end when all of us got a little impatient with the demands of others, your patience and expertise really paid off.

–Mike Winkel, former owner
Sierra Freightliner

As a CPA, I spent over 30 years in mergers and acquisitions for public and private companies and certainly recognize technical expertise and a professional job “well done”. Katrina exceeded my expectations in all areas.

–Burt Koenig, President
Mountain Papa, Inc.

You and your staff have probably added 10 years to our lives. I believe in these uncertain times it was an excellent job all around. I will continue to send you leads on anyone I hear that’s interested in buying or selling.
