Many apologies for taking so long to get in touch.
Robert and I would like to extend our sincere thanks for all your
hard work in selling Broadland Stainless on our behalf.
We have never sold a company before and it was very reassuring to
be expertly guided through the whole process from start to finish. Your
knowledge and advise was greatly appreciated throughout and we cannot speak
highly enough of your company.
Thank you, once again, and we would not hesitate to recommend you
to anyone looking to sell their business.
Just wanted to say thank you to you and EM&F Group for doing such a great job and putting the deal together to sell our business.
Mark I appreciate the attention and
support you gave us.
Big thank you Mark!

Hello Michael, Kathie and Amanda
Just to let you know the sale completed today.
I would like to thank you all for the professional service you
offered and all that you did to help the sale progress to a swift conclusion.
Lee Wenzel - Previous owner, From The Heart, New Milton, Hamphire
We used EM&F S&W Wales Ltd
by recommendation and are so glad we did.
Mark was very informative and kept
us up to date on the progress of the sale. Although we were informed it could
possibly take a while to sell due to the time we decided to put it on the
market, it sold within 3 days to our surprise.
The sale sailed through in
time for our future plans. I would highly recommend Mark of EM&F S&W Wales Ltd for anyone planning to sell their business.
Thank you Mark & all at

We were happy with the service you provided in placing the Hair Salon for
sale and achieving a happy outcome. You made every effort in putting potential clients in touch with us

Dear Mrs Carr
Just a short note to thank you and your staff for your assistance in dealing with the sale of the above property. I would like to say that from when we first published the property and business back in 2004 and the subsequent leasing of the premises in 2011, right up to the recent sale to Mrs Turner, we have been very pleased with the service we have received from your office and indeed your good self, and we would have no hesitation in recommending your agency should such an occasion arise in the future.
I would like to say a big thank you to you for the great job you have done in getting this over the line. We have had our tetchy moments but throughout you have been the ultimate professional in what turned out to be a tricky little transaction.

Vic's fish and chips is now open and running with the purchase of The Saucy

We are writing to express our grateful thanks for all
your assistance and attention to detail whilst helping us to sell our Bed &
We did originally place the sale in the hands of 2
other Agencies but neither of them displayed the same courtesy and
professionalism that we received from yourselves.
It was a particularly difficult sale and we appreciate
that you kept us updated at every stage of the process and were quick to inform
us of any details that you felt we should be made aware of.
Thank you for all your help.

It is our
pleasure to write this Testimonial for Mr Andrew Hadley, we listed our shop with Everett Masson & Furby Anglia. Throughout all transactions and
negotiations he has been professional, friendly and supportive. He has offered
advice when needed, kept us up to date with progress and guided us through the
sale of our shop. Andrew definitely made the whole experience operate as smoothly as
possible and with the least amount of stress. We would have no hesitation in
recommending him as an excellent real estate agent to anyone considering
selling their commercial property.
We have recently sold our newsagents business thanks to Keith Bentley and EM & F of Southport.
We had excellent service from EM & F from start to completion, Keith being always available to advise on all aspects of the complexities of business sales.
He gave us a fair and realistic appraisal of the value of the business - no wildly exaggerated claims of what may be obtained.
He ensured only serious prospective purchasers seeking our type of business contacted us - no time wasters.
He was excellent at negotiating on our behalf to agree a figure acceptable to us - no ''take any offer'' to make a sale.
After the sale was agreed Keith kept in regular contact to oversee it through to completion.
To anyone looking to sell their business we can 100% recommend Keith Bentley and EM & F of Southport.
Mr & Mrs A Pearson - previous owners Village News, Orrell, Wigan
again I would like to thank you on the professional service that you have
offered in securing the sale of my business, this the second time I have used
your services and on both occasions you have worked diligently . Many thanks
wanted to send you a quick email to thank you for all your help during the

I just wanted to drop you a note to thank the team at EM&F for
your hard work and support in the successful sale of Green Hammerton Post
We were delighted with the level of interest generated through your
marketing from serious buyers and your support in agreeing a fair price for the
business. Following on from this, the whole sale process was handled
efficiently and professionally and your support and advice during some
difficult negotiations was very much appreciated.
I have no hesitation in recommending you to other business owners
considering the sale of their business. Having experienced other sales agents
as a buyer of this and my current business, I think it is vital that sufficient
emphasis is placed on the experience and personal service provided by EM&F
when compared to certain other agents. This can make a significant difference
to both the buyer and seller and affect the chances of a successful sale.
Many thanks once again.
Mr Michael Rogers - previous owner Green Hammerton Post Office, Green Hammerton, North Yorkshire
At last! The sale of the shop
completed on Monday - just shy of a year since Jason first viewed it!! I can't
believe it's taken that long but it's a relief we've finally got there.
Thanks for your help and guidance
in the sale of the shop.
Mrs T Plank - previous owner Nutmeg, Petersfield, Hampshire
We would like to thank you for your excellent
handling of the sale of our Post Office, which took longer than it should have,
due to the technicalities involved, and the delicate negotiations between
ourselves and various potential purchasers.
Without your help, we are convinced that the sale
would not have been realised.
We have dealt with other transfer agents in the
past, but found that the personal attention given to us by Mark Harrison was a
refreshing change from some of the larger companies, and would recommend anyone
trying to buy or sell a business to try E M and F.
Mr Hadley provided
an excellent service in arranging for the sale of my late husband's
business in a sensitive manner at a difficult time . The service was
professional in its efficiency and promptness with regard to documentation and
advertisement and in assisting with making sensible and pragmatic
decisions about various options open to me.
I would recommend
Mr Hadley to others who would wish to find a service of this kind.
Susan Clarkson - previous owner Doctor Motor, Peterborough
the dust has settled after the Lease of our property we just wanted to drop you
and Keith a line to say a big thank you. It was the second time in two years we
have used your expert knowledge and guidance and we have appreciated all you
done for us over and above what we would expect. The advice Keith gave us
regarding the value of the Lease was very much appreciated as it secured an
agreement we did not expect. Best wishes to you both for the future and we will
not hesitate to recommend you to our business friends.

a sudden bereavement on Christmas Day, I inherited my husbands business, a Newsagents/ Convenience Store that had been in the family for almost 64 years. Entering
the shop on Boxing Day was a rude awakening, as I had no previous experience. I
continued with the business and put it up for sale. After unsuccessful
attempts I contacted the National Federation of Retail Newsagents (NFRN), who
suggested I contact the North West Office of EM&F Business Transfer Agents. I wish I had engaged this company in the first instance!
the first contact with Mr & Mrs Bentley, I was confident that I would not
experience the difficulties I had encountered with previous Agents. They
understood my remit of finding the right person and a realistic selling
a day of signing my contract with them I had viewings. They
acted as mediator between myself & prospective buyers, relieving
me of the complexities of negotiating by making things simple with intelligent
remit was a tough one, as I was selling a family business with staff in situ, Mr
& Mrs Bentley were very thorough in their research for prospective buyers, they
found me the perfect person and a sale was agreed. The transfer & transactions again were conducted to relieve me of any pressure. What
was encouraging is they kept me informed by constantly updating on the
progress, which I found essential and a relief for decision making. Their
advice and knowledge was an intricate part of the service offered
have highly recommend Mr & Mrs Bentley, EM&F business transfer agents to
other colleagues and would encourage anyone who is thinking of selling their
business, to give them a call.
We would like to thank you guys in the
operation of sale of the business,it has been our desire for sometime to own a
shop,and finally we found,what we think to be a goldmine of a business.
would also like to thank Mrs,Riley and her family in being patient and helpful
along of the sale and we wish them all the best for the future.
would also like to wish you both a Happy and Merry Christmas and Happy New year
hope to speak to you soon as now I understand what it takes to own your
business.Once again many thanks for bringing this business to our attention.

found Keith & Ann to be incredibly helpful in selling my business , any
question I had they dealt with. They
used the experience they have acquired to help me for which I was extremely
grateful . In
fact due to Keith I actually got a better price in than I expected .

is the second time we have used EM&F and Mark Jameson when selling a
business and again have been pleased with results. An honest and realistic
company that carry out their business with real humans in mind, we found the
level of service and involvement a real asset when selling a family business.
We would be happy to use EM&F again and would certainly recommend them to

I just wanted to thank you and your team for all your efforts in getting my business sold.
Peter Silley - previous owner Purdy & Tully, Paignton, Devon
I recently had an exceptional experience when using EMF Group to sell my business. Once a suitable buyer had been found - in our particular case the perfect buyer - everything ran more than smoothly and I was extremely impressed with not only the ample amount of communication between myself and the agency but attention to detail throughout. In particular I was highly impressed with the proactivity of the agency and would not hesitate to seek advice from them in the future.
Terry Drew - previous owner Specialist Automotive Ltd, Bury St. Edmunds, East Anglia
Roy Wainwright - previous owner Reepham Sweet Shop, Reepham, East Anglia
thanks for all your help selling the business. I found you very easy to deal
with throughout - you made the whole process extremely simple and I am clearly
delighted to have sold so quickly. Unlike some other companies, you were
realistic about the company value, and didn't promise the earth. Instead, you
gave me a realistic valuation (which was clearly correct, even if I didn't want
to hear it!), and managed to attract serious buyers. You knew when to be more
involved, and when to take a back seat, and as a result the process has been
extremely smooth from the start.
James Gray - previous owner Canterbury Marquees, Kent
I have found Mark and EM&F to be thoroughly professional and helpful throughout the sale of my business, from valuation to completion, Mark was in constant communication to keep me informed and helped to take the stress out of the sale process. He offered excellent advice in terms of valuation and we achieved an acceptable offer very quickly. Highly recommended.
Stuart Loversidge - previous owner Newsbox, Bognor Regis, West Sussex
you for assisting me with the sale of my business. I am aware that without
your professional service it could have been a much more complicated and
potentially stressful experience. I am pleased to say that
everyone is happy! I would have no hesitation in recommending you or your
company to anyone in a similar position to myself.
