We would like to take this opportunity to recommend Mr. John Brogan of Acquisition Experts. Within one month after signing the contract with Mr. Brogan he contacted us with an offer. By the second month the business was sold. Mr. Brogan’s interpersonal and communication skills are second to none. In a very stressful time in our life he handled everything for us in an efficient and professional manner. We highly recommend Mr. Brogan to any future clients.”

After working with you, I trust you implicitly and have the utmost respect for you. You are ethical, professional and committed to providing the best service you can for your clients. I am happy to refer others to you who may be interested in buying or selling a business. I know without a doubt they will be in good hands.”
Dale Armor (from Acquisition Experts) was helpful, knowledgeable, accessible, responded to my requests promptly and, most importantly, thought and responded as a businessman. I would highly recommend Acquisition Experts LLC to anyone who is considering the purchase of a business.”

Dear John, I would like to thank you for your assistance in helping me sell my pest management company, and for your assistance in drawing up the sale contract and at closing. My company is just a one-man operation, but I believe you gave me as much consideration and effort as you would have given a million dollar operation. Your professionalism and expertise was outstanding – rare commodities these days – and I appreciated your dedication to finding the best deal and the best buyer for me and my company.”

Dear Bob, I wish to thank you for the professional manner in which you successfully marketed and sold my business. It is without reservation that I would recommend your service to anyone in the area selling or purchasing a business. I appreciated the way in which you spent time working with me answering all my questions, providing advice on the contractual arrangements of the sale and staying in constant communication throughout the process. I would be happy in recommending your services and that of Acquisition Experts to anyone. You made the process painless! It has been a pleasure working with a true professional.”

When my business partner and I began exploring options to sell our environmental consulting firm we were totally in the dark. Fortunately, we were referred to Ken at Acquisition Experts, and we couldn’t be more pleased with the outcome. The sale of a niche consulting firm presented numerous challenges. Ken quickly educated himself on the nature and profitability of our operations, client base, and exit objectives. He produced a number of potential buyers and was able to set the foundation that ultimately allowed the selected buyer to secure a SBA loan. His understanding of the financial complexities of buying/selling a business and his ability to read people’s intentions was amazing. He is a consummate professional with great people skills and can diplomatically convey realistic expectations to both the seller and buyer. These skills are essential to reaching the compromises necessary to successfully culminate a deal.
With Ken at the helm, we were able to navigate uncharted waters and reach a retirement port-of-call very much to our liking. I would highly recommend Ken and Acquisition experts to anyone who is interested in buying or selling a Florida business.”

Ken arranged the transition of my current practice from the previous owner. Ken`s contribution to the smooth transition was tremendous; he helped me understand the dynamics and the elements to look at when buying a medical practice and was both honest, professional, but also a great teacher in this tricky field. He was available to answer any questions I had and was always responsive to our needs. He even calculated a projected P&L for the first years of the practice after the transition, which turned to be accurate. I can responsibly say that Ken is among the most professional and accurate persons I have ever worked with. His integrity and availability are exemplary. I would highly recommend him.”

When we were in the market to purchase our restaurant, Bob Leone sold it to us. When the unthinkable happened and tragedy struck, he stood by us and sold it for us.
Those two sentences don’t tell the whole story – they can’t. Mr. Leone is a dedicated, honest salesman with a wealth of business knowledge, sales experience, integrity, honesty and not a small amount of heart. He believes in the product he sells – otherwise he wouldn’t be half as good at what he does – but he also believes in the people behind each transaction. He pays attention to his clients’ needs whether they’re potential buyers or hopeful sellers, frequently understanding his clients’ needs far better than they themselves do.
I really am having trouble coming up with something that adequately conveys not only my satisfaction with Bob Leone’s work but also conveys my genuine gratitude and respect for a man that really does go above and beyond what anyone has a right to expect.
If you’re considering selling your business, please also consider contracting Mr. Leone to sell it for you. If you’re curious about the man trying to sell you a business you have your eye on, know that he will take care of you.”

Ken is an outstanding business partner. We worked together on a very large complex medical practice acquisition. Ken represented the buyer professionally, providing excellent counsel to his client, and was open with a great understanding as to what we were looking for. Ken worked closely with me to meet both the needs of the client and the bank. Ken is very professional and knowledgeable in acquisitions in the healthcare industry and presents well in the medical community. I look forward to working with Ken on future acquisitions.”

We hired Ken Elkin to represent our company as a business broker. Ken evaluated the business, came up with a marketing plan, and put a valuation on the business. He met with us several times and explored several different options for us. Ken exceeded all of our expectations and was successful in selling our company at a fair price and good terms. I would highly recommend his services to anyone.”

Dear Dale, We just want to let you know how much I appreciate the work you did for me on the sale of C&H Trailer. It appeared on a number of occasions that the sale was dead, yet you were able to revive it every time. I believe that your dedication to your clients and your knowledge of financial lending practices were what kept the deal going.
I thank you for your dedication, personal attention to my desires, your knowledge of commercial sales and your willingness to keep trying when most others would simply give up. You came highly recommended to me by a friend of mine whose business you sold a few years ago. I will continue to recommend you to anyone I meet who is either looking to purchase or sell.”

Dale, Thanks for all you help in making today possible. I know it was not easy to finally bring this deal to the closing table but your persistence and positive attitude made all the difference. Thank you for your professionalism, attention to detail and your integrity. I look forward to dealing with you in the future on anything that we can help each other out with.”

Throughout our three month closing process, Dale (from Acquisition Experts) helped facilitate every stage of the negotiations. Without his advice and knowledge, I question whether our deal would have come together. I wholeheartedly recommend that anyone seeking to buy or sell a business in the Treasure Coast area should involve Acquisition Experts LLC in the transaction.”

It is with great pleasure and assurance that we would highly recommend Dale Armor (from Acquisition Experts) as an honest and reputable business broker. Dale was very instrumental in the sale of Brazilian Limousine Service, which involved organizing information from both parties, lawyers and accountants.

Dear Bob: Violet and I are writing this letter to express our gratitude for all of your efforts in our business endeavor. Your knowledge and skills are what guided us in the right direction for acquiring the right business for us, and we couldn’t be happier.
As I am now the proud owner of Comfort Solutions, you have far exceeded my expectations as a business broker. This business venture has been a long road from beginning to end, and you have been there to provide the reassurance I needed. Your patience and wisdom were extremely helpful while dealing with an obstinate seller. The willingness you put forth to help me through a difficult and lengthy SBA loan process is greatly appreciated. In the eight months since I purchased this company, business is up over 30%, and I owe it to you.
Our entire family cannot thank you enough for your guidance, which has changed our lives. If you ever are in need of a recommendation, please do not hesitate to contact me, or have your clients contact me. I am looking forward to seeing you in the near future. Good luck to you.”

Dear John, I’d like to take this opportunity to convey my sincere appreciation to you and your entire organization for the superb guidance and assistance given to me over the last year as we collectively worked to sell my 14 year-old business.
When we first meet, I was very much unsure of what was involved in valuing the business, or even how to go about marketing and locating prospective, qualified buyers. Your steady hand went a long way in ensuring that both Buyer and Seller obtained a mutually fair and satisfying price.
I am very grateful for all that you’ve done, and hope that you have many years of success going forward. If I can be of any assistance, please feel free to call me anytime.

To whom it may concern: My family and I contacted John Brogan of Acquisition Experts, LLC after we received news that my father had passed away and left us with a small business that we had no idea how to manage. John immediately recognized our need for not only for a broker, but for a guide or mentor through this difficult and confusing time. Very quickly, John was able to analyze my father’s business and come up with not only an estimated value, but he offered multiple options of how to proceed. After my family and I decided that the best course of action was to offer the business for sale, John jumped into action, explaining each step of the process as well as going over every single word of any paperwork we encountered. Within less than a week, John had multiple credible offerors scheduled to meet with us and again continued to mentor us on decisions and through the selling process.
I trusted John and he delivered. I have no doubt, without the professional help of John and Acquisition Experts, LLC, my family would have gotten nowhere near the volume or magnitude of offers that we received. Thank you for helping us through this difficult time.
