“I had two business transactions with Richard Flask:”

  1. “After interviewing several business brokers, we chose Richard to list our business. He made this transaction happen. Richard qualified the buyer before any negotiations took place, and Richard secured a good price for our business. The transaction was smooth and painless.”

  2. “The most recent transaction was the purchase of a business, and Richard was the broker we selected to handle it. There were a few complications that arose from the negotiations that had the potential to end the sale. However, with Richard’s skill and demeanor, he was able to overcome the complications with both parties and the deal was completed.”

“I would not hesitate to choose Richard Flask for any future business transactions. I have total confidence in his ability.”

“It has been a month or so since escrow closed on the business purchase and I wanted to take a minute to thank you for helping me work through my first acquisition process. First, this transaction would not have occurred if it was not for you. We had a deal constructed in less than a week and I believe that was in part due to your honesty and integrity with both parties in the process. You were always available for questions and personally kept both myself and the owner moving on key tasks to close the deal quickly.”

“Most importantly, it comes down to trust and integrity. I felt very comfortable with your style, your communication and your energy from the day I met you, and that feeling strengthened as we corresponded through the sales process. You should know that if I buy another business or sell this business, you are my only choice to represent me in the deal.”

“As for any future customers, I hope they have the pleasure of working with you, as I know you will execute and perform as you did on this transaction”

Your thoroughness in screening and pre-qualifying buyers saved time and kept the excitement in the process of selecting a buyer.

Being convinced that you were on our side, protecting our interests, greatly diminished the stress associated with selling a business. You made selling the business a breeze!”

So, I really appreciated your advice and counsel on how to get the most value for my business, as well as your involvement with the buyer, escrow office and lenders to move the process forward as rapidly as possible.”
