We would like to take this opportunity to thank both yourself and your team for the efficient and friendly way in which you handled the sale of our business.
We can now start to enjoy retirement.
Paul & Margaret Ballard (Ex Serenade)
just a few words of thanks for the service we received from you whilst you were selling our business you and your staff were excellent in all ways !
Mel & Yvonne Bishop
I just wanted to send you a quick email to thank you for all your help during the recent purchase of Chewies.
We commenced trading from yesterday and are very happy in our 'home'.
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 Office
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.
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.
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.
Now 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.
Having 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!
From 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 price. Within 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 information.
My 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
I 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.
