Here are what some of Matt’s clients are saying:

“During the sale of my business, Matt did an outstanding job from finding the buyer to obtaining proper financing to closely managing the sales transaction, you did it all with class!”

“Matt’s professionalism, knowledge, and diligence were instrumental in properly preparing me for the sales transaction. It was a difficult business to sell, and I found Matt’s approach and character never to be discouraged. I could not have done it without him.”

“Matt’s attention to detail gave us great confidence that every aspect of the complex selling process of our company would be appropriately addressed. He explained the benefits of Seller Finance which was key in selling our business at an acceptable price.”

“The details and complexity of this process was somewhat overwhelming and I underestimated what was involved in the sale of my manufacturing business. Matt managed the entire process efficiently including assisting me with preparing the business for sale, due diligence, assisting the buyer with obtaining SBA finance, to dealing with the landlord and all the escrow requirements plus so much more. It took some time but it worked out great for all involved. Matt was extremely knowledgeable and professional and with his assistance, I am now able to retire in peace.”
