What do our clients say?
At EMF we believe that a satisfied customer is the best business strategy of them all.
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.
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.
We 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.
We would also like to wish you both a Happy and Merry Christmas and Happy New year for 2015.
I 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.
I 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 .
This 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 others.
I just wanted to thank you and your team for all your efforts in getting my business sold.
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.
Thank you! Very professional!
Many 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.
