I met with Broker Vasilis Georgiou, of Crossroads Business Brokers. Because I was still undecided at the time of our first meeting, I asked that he kept our conversations confidential. I immediately felt comfortable with Vasilis and trusted him so much that I listed the business within a few weeks. He handled things very confidentially, which is essential in preserving the business during the sale process.
Vasilis knew exactly where to position and advertise the sale in order to attract good buyers. Because we were a part of a franchise system that has extremely high qualifications for its owners, Vasilis screened all interested parties and only presented to us qualified buyers. All told, we received 3 offers and within 3 months of listing, we had a Letter of Intent and were in serious conversations with qualified buyers.
The due diligence process was intense, there were lots of reports to prepare for the buyers, which is normal for any business sale. Vasilis was there every step of the way to guide and help us. Every time there was a bump along the road, he was there to help… to cheer you on….to get the process going without being too emotional! He took a lot of the inquiries and calls from the buyers, so we didn’t have to be interrupted much. He was always reachable even while on vacation. After another 2 months, our business was sold! We were very happy with the quality of our buyers and the ROI on the business.
If you are looking to sell your business, I highly recommend Vasilis Georgiou of Crossroads Business Brokers, especially if your business is in healthcare. He knows this market very well and he has the right knowledge and temperament to see you through the process.
