What They’re Saying
After doing an extensive evaluation and comparing their prior work and sale strategy to that of several other business brokers in the area, we selected CGK Business Sales to represent us in the sale of our business. Their credentials, knowledge, experience and enthusiasm about our business set them apart. They helped us understand the sale dynamics and created realistic valuation expectations. We concluded their ability to understand and promote our very successful, high growth but unusual business, would result in the best outcome. We were right in our assessment. Derik located multiple interested strategic buyers that produced more than one serious offer. The negotiations with the acquiring company were tough with some significant bumps that Greg and Derik’s experience helped us overcome. We got a great result for our employees and for the owners. We would recommend them without reservation.Bob TaylorProduct
Having never sold a business before I had no idea what to expect. We chose CGK because of their presentation, preparation and their energy to sell our business/property. Wes was outstanding in walking us through each step, offering us guidance, perspective and a sounding board when needed. There were what seemed to be insurmountable obstacles at times during this process. Without Wes's dedication, perseverance, ingenuity and his ability to work with people the sale would not have happened. I would strongly recommend Wes and CGK Business Sales. Top notch customer service.Suzanne Piispanen
I contacted CGK Business Sales to complete a valuation for my late father's business. They were extremely knowledgeable and turned around an accurate valuation in record time. They took the time to walk me through all items they completed so I fully understood how they landed on the final numbers. Also, I can't say enough about Greg. He played a huge part in me selling my father's company. He gave me invaluable contacts that were honest, forthright and experts in their fields. I would highly recommend CGK Business Sales, Greg and his team to family members, friends and people I do not know. If you need help do it right the first time and contact the right people. These guys are the right people.Kristin Chaumont
Derik with CGK Business Sales sold my business at a really good price during an exceptionally difficult time. These guys know what they're doing and know how to get a good deal. And if you're thinking about selling your business on your own, don't. You'll get a better deal and be a lot less stressed out if you go with a professional. Hire CGK Business Sales. They're the real deal.Chris H
Greg is extremely knowledgeable in the Mergers and Acquisitions space. His expertise was extremely valuable in getting a true valuation on a business opportunity. The seller and I came to a fair agreement just today and I couldn't be happier with Greg's continued support and dedication through the negotiation. There were multiple opportunities for me to make a mistake and his guidance was beyond reproach. The outcome was exactly as it should be thanks to CGK Business Sales. I hope to complete this deal and when the next opportunity arises I won't be looking anywhere else. Thanks again Greg.Darin LaFon
