I recently sold my business through Sunbelt Business Brokers. A business associate, Chris Enright, knew I was planning to retire in the next couple of years. Chris was making a career change to become a business broker and approached me to see if I would be interested in signing up with the brokerage he had chosen to work with. I’ve known Chris and his family for a number of years and knew that if he said Sunbelt and Joan Young were reliable people, then I could trust them. Chris has proven himself to be honest and reliable throughout the years I have known him.
The sale of my business was, I think, relatively complex and required extra communication and activity to see the process to completion. Chris and Sunbelt rose to the occasion at every step. They brought me multiple buyer offers, helped me through the buyer selection/vetting process, helped me prepare and move through the due diligence process and worked with me from beginning to the end. Communication was always prompt, discretion was respected throughout and help with some complex issues were there when needed.
I would definitely recommend Chris and Sunbelt. I actually have recommended them to three different friends and business associates already and would recommend them to anyone wanting the professional help a business sale requires. Sunbelt helped me find a qualified buyer, reach a price that was satisfactory, and complete an agreement that makes me confident as I transition from a business owner to a mentor and ultimately to retirement.
I might add that Joan also recommended an attorney, Brad Bosomworth, who she has had clients work with and he was an important factor in facilitating the process and making sure I am protected after the sale. During the sale, it was necessary to work with our county on some zoning issues and Chris went out of his way to help with this process. I am available should someone wish to speak to me about the selling process from my perspective.
