David Screaigh and Catherine Jones from Zircom Business Brokers were engaged to sell my General Practice. Their marketing was so successful and we had about 76 interested parties.
This all happened not long after my dear husband passed away. David and Catherine not only attended to all the necessary documents they also supported me emotionally. When I was emotionally down and about to give up they encouraged me to carry on.
David and Catherine had to deal with two lawyers, three accountants, three partnership buyers, several other buyers and myself. They also attended to all my concerns and gave me advice on every aspect of the sale.
One of the most important qualities about David and Catherine is that they do not give up on a sale and focus on the outcome. They have conquered many obstacles on this sale. I really admire your continuous support and perseverance on this sale. Thank you so much for your help.
After making the decision to sell our Storage Solutions Business that we had built up from scratch over the previous 20 years, we had no idea who to contact or where to start. Fortunately, our accountant told us about Zircom Business Brokers…….. a company that sells businesses, run by David Screaigh and Catherine Jones…..Qualified Accountants and Real Estate Brokers. The fact that they could look at a sale from both sides with Accounting knowledge and Commercial and Industrial Sales Savvy, appealed greatly to us.
David and Catherine came highly recommended and we feel sure their combination of knowledge, along with their sales and communication perseverance and attention to detail, provided for a successful sale of our business.
Whilst there were many ups and downs from prospective buyers during the course of our sale, we cannot praise David and Catherine enough on their continuous efforts, incredible knowledge of the industry, their patient guidance and never giving up despite some challenging circumstances. Nothing was too hard or too difficult.
David and Catherine most definitely took all the worry and stress out of selling our business.
We certainly would recommend Zircom Business Brokers to anyone selling their business.
David Screaigh and Catherine Jones from Zircom Business Brokers undertook to process of marketing my business for the sale under a fairly tight brief. In a service business, confidentiality and trust are important; as with ensuring that the net is not cast too wide to destabilise or compromise the business. David and Catherine prepared the IM and went through a tested process including the relevant checks of prospective buyers. Their networks developed over the years proved valuable in reaching prospective buyers and bringing qualified purchasers to the table.
Understanding the need for complete confidentiality, David went over and above making himself available after hour and weekends to make it easier for me during the process. David also worked with my accountant and lawyer; and together, they formed a trusted team who represented my best interest. I would have no hesitation in recommending David and Catherine of Zircom.
Just a quick email to let you know that the Buyer is turning out to be a really good fit for the Practice and the clients. I know you mentioned how important this is in our very first phone call and emails back in October last year. Back then I realised you knew what you were talking about, but I still underestimated how important it was to find someone that was the right fit. Having the Buyer working in the office this week, I have started to appreciate how important it is to have someone who is the right fit. He knows what he is talking about and the clients like him. I’ve been joking with the girls that the Buyer is like a younger, more patient and less grumpy version of me. I really do appreciate your expertise and all of the effort you have put into this transaction. These clients really mean a lot to me. My heart and my head are both at peace knowing that you have found someone that will be able to look after the loyal clients who have made this business a success. From the bottom of my heart, I thank you for everything you have done.
My Accountant recommended to me the services of Zircom when I was considering selling my business. I could not be more pleased with the outcome.
From the beginning, the experience and knowledge of David and Catherine was evident as they assessed the business assets, client base and ultimately recommended a selling price range.
They were correct, and a buyer was found in the first month of advertising. There were some obstacles during negotiations but, again David and Catherine’s experience enabled the deal to be realised.
Their attention to detail and clear straight forward advice are significant assets not easily found.
I have already recommended Zircom’s services to three close friends and have no doubt they will be pleased with the outcome.
We were indeed fortunate to be referred to David Screaigh and Catherine Jones of Zircom Business Brokers as the people to deal with when selling an accounting practice . Right from the first meeting we felt comfortable dealing with them. Their experience working with and in our industry gave them the understanding that we were looking for the “right fit”, not just a sale. It has been a stressful time severing ties with clients and staff, but the sale process itself was handled expertly and smoothly. We are very grateful. Our very best wishes to you both.
