"The necessary experience to achieve the best outcome" - Paolo

The following testimonial is given freely and without coercion of any kind…….

After making the decision to sell my business, which I had spent the last 5 years building up, it was important that I found the right business broker to help me find the most appropriate purchaser.

I researched the different broking firms until I had 3 possible candidates and then further researched the individual brokers. After taking the time to interview each potential broker, I had no hesitation in contracting Paolo Delmonte of Barkers to represent my best interests.

The thing that impressed me with Paolo right from the start was his ability to listen. First of all, he listened carefully to really understand what my business was all about and, secondly, as to what was important to me in respect to the required attributes of any potential purchaser.

Paolo impressed me with his innate ability to readily understand my perspective and the market in which we operate. Given his accountancy background, he was also able to appreciate the financial aspects of my business and therefore he could confidently explain the intricacies of it to any potential purchaser.

One comfort for me, was Paolo always made himself available to answer any of my queries as we navigated our way through the sale process. He quickly identified the best way to attract potential purchasers and within a very short time, had solicited a large amount of requests for information. He then went about filtering “the chaff from the hay” until he had a handful of pre-qualified purchasers, which he then presented to me for assessment.

After assisting me with this selection process, where the “right” purchaser was identified, Paolo then took care of drawing up the Sale & Purchase agreement and then oversaw the legal process until we first had an unconditional agreement – followed finally by settlement.

To anyone who is considering selling their business and doesn’t have the time or skill necessary to do any of the above, then I have no hesitation whatsoever in recommending Paolo Delmonte to assist you. Not only will your stress levels be severely reduced, but you will have someone working for you who will take the time to understand your circumstances, will constantly look out for your best interests and who has the necessary experience to achieve the best outcome.
