Hi Paul,

Right from the first meeting with Russel and Paul 3 1/2 years ago, dealing with PBS has been very smooth sailing. My business is a business that could really only be sold to a niche market, with a buyer with the same skill set as me, so we knew that it would not be an easy process and possibly a very long process (especially given the economic downturn). Paul was very thorough in preparing a report that was very accurate and looked so great that it made me want to buy my business myself! The report was updated regularly. 

Paul gave me lots of advice but was also happy to listen to, and act on, any ideas that I had regarding the sale as it is was such a specific business type. Throughout the process he learnt a lot about my profession and actively tried to find solutions to help the sale progress. Each time a prospective buyer was introduced it was great to have Paul there to liase between the two parties and also to guide us during each step of the process. Each week Paul would ring me to update me on any developments that had occurred, even on the queit weeks when nothing had happened. 

Confidentiality was a huge issue for me and Paul was very mindful of this reinforcing it with each person who enquired. I even asked him to dress more casually when he came for a meeting at the premises as my clients would ask questions if they say someone in a suit - He happily obliged and wore jeans!

Once we had a buyer secured Paul was still just as attentive to both the buyer and me. I have found that with selling houses etc, once the deal is secured the agent suddenly doesn't care. Paul was not like this - he cared right through to the end.

Thanks Paul and PBS for everything you did to help me. I will not hesitate to recommend you to anyone who needs a business broker.

Once sold, we were surprised to see how easy the ownership transition was with PBS looking after all legalities ensuring a smooth transition from one equity owner to the other. We have no hesitation in recommending Russell and PBS for business sale transaction and thank the team wholeheartedly for their support through the sale process. "

"We searched for the best Business Brokers in Perth to sell our business, that we had worked so hard on and invested 9 years of our life, growing, and improving our thriving Tourism business. We were recommended to Performance Business Sales. We were impressed from the outset. Russell was extremely professional, the marketing material we had to complete prior to listing was challenging, but we got there, and in just a few short weeks we had a sale. Great job, we will always be grateful. "

"To whom it may concern

Having recently sold my business through Performance Business Sales and in particular Graham Nankivell, I feel obliged to commend them for their professionalism and commitment.

I originally placed my business with another business brokerage. After some weeks, I was disappointed by their attitude and approach, especially as the number of potential Buyers contacted was pathetically small, with no sale resulting.

Fortunately, a colleague who had sold a business his business through performance Business Sales, recommended Graham to me.

The difference between the two companies was obvious - Performance Business Sales gave a realistic valuation, detailed glossy full detailed report and constant enthusiasm, while the previously employed broker presented half a dozen low quality photos and several pages of text and lost interest after the first few weeks.

The effort put into compiling the report was largely responsible for the sale of the business. The enthusiastic approach was unfaltering and there was never a doubt the business would sell.

I have no doubt at all that Graham's very professional presentation and correct valuation/data sold the shop. Unlike the other previous Broker, Graham kept me informed and up-to-date constantly.

Graham displayed amazing patience, persistence and diplomacy. he was able to smooth "ruffled feathers "and continue negotiations regardless of how challenging the problem appeared. he would be in my opinion, be second to none in negotiating skills.

I thoroughly recommend performance Business Sales to anyone wishing to sell their business. "

"The old saying "third time proves it" has never been more true! The sale of the national and international franchise rights for Housework Heroes is the third business for which we have engaged your services as business sales agent. On each occasion we have accepted full price offers. Each sale has been handled in a professional manner and has achieved a timely sale to an appropriate purchaser. The Performance Business Sales system, including the Business Report, is the best alternative for those considering selling a business. The system works!"

"My wife and I used the services of PBS for the sale of our company, WPA Cleaning. The main thing that impressed us was the easy friendly use of the services. We were always given updates on progress and out of hours response. Easy to find and park when we went to their offices. The settling agent they use was also very easy to use.
