Find out what satisfied Business Vendors and Business Buyers have to say about us

What do our clients say?

At EMF we believe that a satisfied customer is the best business strategy of them all.

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.

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.

Hi Andrew

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'.

Hello Gilly

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.
