Ian MacLachlan

I wanted to give you and your company, Business Team, a letter of recommendation for assisting in the sale of my business. You worked hard and did not give up. You brought me a number of prospective buyers and lots of good advice. Your team members were tirelessly finding prospective buyers for me to meet with. I was pleased with the outcome and the hard work it took to find the right buyer for me as I had requirements that were not just monetary.

Thanks so much

Sincerely,
Jane Groner
Founder of Pacific Placement Group


I just wanted to drop you a quick note to say thanks for your efforts over the past year. When we first met in February of 2002, you gave me a probable scenario of who would buy my business, how long it would take, and how much I could expect to sell it for. It appeared as if you were looking into a crystal ball, because you were correct in all cases. Your company did a great job with my greatest concern, letting the buyers know we were for sale without letting our competition know. The Sale was kept quiet up until the Very end.

Both you and Richard made the transition process very easy. Elaine was always on top of the details. Toni at Commercial Escrow was a pleasure to work with and made the paperwork part of the sale very simple.

Now that the sale is public, I have had people ask me how we found the buyer and how we advertised. I explained that your company took care of everything. I have given your name out to several people already. You may be getting some calls.

Thanks again Ian for delivering what you said you would.

Best Regards,
David L. McCoy, Former Owner Compass Rose Yacht Charters, LLC


It has been over a month now since my business, Flexstar Technology, was acquired by the Audax Group. After completing my transitional duties, I have been enjoying my days at home with my wife, improving my golf game and I have also been reflecting upon the service and professionalism demonstrated by you and the team at BTI.

As you know, I have been involved in the sale or purchase of Flexstar on five separate occasions. Perhaps more so than some of your other clients, I am very acquainted with the process including the stress and aggravation that accompany it. Selling a business is a lot of work; not an easy task, BTI produced a continuous stream of buyers. We were under an LOI with Golden Gate Capital and then the eventual buyer, Audax, practically since the start of our engagement agreement.

Throughout the transaction, I appreciated your calm and steady demeanor especially at the eleventh hour when what appeared to me to be a fatal development occurred. You remained convinced of the value of Flexstar, and you brought me several million dollars more than I had anticipated

Thank you again for all of your efforts. Should you need a reference please don't hesitate to contact me.

Sincerely,
Eric Vergari
Former President, Flexstar Technology


When it came time to sell my electronic waste recycling company, PC Recycle, I contacted the broker who had sold a similar business I owned in Seattle a number years ago and he referred me to Ian and Business Team. (incidentally he was a former Business Team employee).

We soon had a number of interested buyers from within the industry but the eventually buyer, outside the industry, was a former client of Ian's who agreed to pay my asking price (actually paid me a little bit more) and the transaction closed in two months. Ian, with the assistance of Marion (Business Team transaction manager) presented the deal to a number of SBA lenders and was able to find the one bank able to overcome a major challenge (Buyer's net worth exceeded SBA guidelines).

Ian was very helpful in the negotiations from start to finish and I can heartily recommend him to any business owners planning to retire.

Sincerely,
Farhad Saifyan, Seller

Linda Lu

To whom it may concern:

I am writing this letter to serve as a written recommendation for Linda Lu of Business Team Brokers.

We decided to put our business up for sale in late 2017. We had a lot of employees and vendors that we worked with. Therefore, I wanted the business to be marketed appropriately while at the same time keeping the sale confidential. As this was my first time selling a business I was apprehensive regarding the process. I needed someone professional and trustworthy who I felt could get the business sold quickly and efficiently. After interviewing 3 agents I decided to go with Linda. I felt she was knowledgeable, honest and had good communication skills. From the beginning Linda kept an open line of communication and always kept us updated. She was always available to talk when I had questions.

I stressed the fact that I wanted to keep the sale strictly confidential and only information given to qualified buyers who had the cash and experience to purchase. Linda delivered on this. All buyers were qualified financially before the information of our business was given. All meetings with potential buyers were done after hours per my request. After 3 buyer meetings and approximately 5 months on the markets Linda and her team found us a suitable, well qualified buyer. For a business of our size 5 months was a quick turn around time.

There were hiccups along the way as the buyers were from out of state. However, with Linda’s professional guidance she pulled the deal through. I am so grateful for having a great business agent like Linda on our side. I would highly recommend Linda to anyone who is considering buying or selling a business.
