Below is a testimonial from a client who worked with the Pleasanton, CA Murphy Business Brokerage Firm to sell a business

I just wanted to thank you again for the work you performed in helping us sell D2P Ventures, Inc. last month.

Your professionalism throughout as well as your aggressive approach to bringing in prospective buyers made all the difference. Your pre-qualification of buyers allowed us to relax and we were able to focus on the other important criteria when negotiating with a buyer. As you know, though we talked with about ten buyers, we were able to sell to the second person you brought in. This was beyond our expectations as was how quickly the sale happened given the complex nature of our operations.

Finally, the credibility using a broker gave us proved exceptionally important. We had tried to sell if for a while, but the truth is, they simply did not take the opportunity seriously and immediately tried to imply that our numbers were not very good. In contrast, your knowledge of the M&A market permitted the right type of presentation and positioning of the company - highly profitable and worth every penny!

We are now able to move on to new opportunities knowing that the business is in good hands. It could not have happened without you. Best of luck!
