Reasons to sell a business with Murphy of Northern California

Below is a testimonial from a client who worked with the Northern California Murphy Business Brokerage Firm to sell a business.

"This letter is to commend and recommend Greg Roquet’s services as a business broker. We just finished selling our music store (Music Go Round) through Murphy Business Brokers with Greg. When we first began speaking to Greg about selling our business, we were unsure we would be able to find a buyer with the economy the way it is. Greg has been on top of this sale all the way from day one. He found our buyer and several backup buyers, and he made sure every detail was taken care of. He constantly and consistently communicated each detail to us and always returned calls quickly. He found the resolution to each and every obstacle in a timely manner. He is kind, courteous, and fair. He is a pleasure to work with and really knows what he is doing. I know without him, this process would have been very difficult. We definitely recommend Greg’s services."
