We often work with clients who have previously instructed other brokers, and this was the case with the owner of New Forest Bird Foods.  Successfully marketing a business for sale is not just about putting a few ads on websites and hoping for the best!  After his 18 years of ownership, we were very pleased to find our client a local and already established business who were keen to add New Forest Bird Foods to their portfolio of brands.

“I’d been speaking with Mark for maybe 2 or 3 years prior to listing my business for sale, after having tried selling with a national brokerage which didn’t go well. They gave me an over inflated valuation of my business and very little support. My conversations with Mark showed that he was an honest man who would work tirelessly to get the business sold. He gave me a realistic valuation and we discussed my business in great detail so that he could get a thorough understanding of my operation in what is quite a niche business sector. He then used this information to fully answer the questions of interested parties without the need to keep bothering me. We had a lot of interest from prospective buyers so Mark and Sue had to work really hard to eventually find us the right buyers. I have no doubt you won’t find a better broker to sell your business. Thanks for everything.”  – Paul Matthews, former owner of New Forest Bird Foods.
