Thousands of businesses for sale are represented by over 1000 business brokers that are members of this Association.

I wanted to take this opportunity to say thank you for all of your help to make my business acquisition possible. I think that you would agree that this transaction was very challenging but your honest and
realistic approach help to keep the lines of communication open for me and the seller to work through the obstacles both large and small. Although you represented the seller, I trusted you and felt that we could discuss issues and you would give me solid unbiased advice. If there is ever a time in
which you would like to use me a recommendation, please feel free to do so.
My sincere thanks,
David C. - President
