I would like to take this opportunity of thanking your staff for the undivided attention you gave me throughout the whole process. I am absolutely clear that I made the right choice to use First Peninsula ahead of the other options.Your direction and control was first class and I am convinced the deal that was made, executed and completed would not have had the value that it did having been not for you. The cost of your services reflects the time and dedication and was justifiably well spent. Anyone contemplating using your services should do so without hesitation. Once again, thank you.

I wanted to drop you a line to say how happy we have been with your management of the sale of our company, for obvious reasons we were very concerned that customers and competitors did not know we were selling and I am delighted to say that this has been achieved.

For a sale of a business the size of ours we felt that we would have to endure many months and several potential buyers before finding the right person for the business, however through your screening process we ended up meeting and accepting an offer from the first buyer introduced to us. I know that they themselves felt that you had worked hard to help them, we have achieved the full asking price and were kept well informed by you throughout the funding and transfer process. We are now enjoying working with the buyers to help them get going.

Both my wife and I would like to say thank you for the high quality, hard work, considerate and attentive way you have dealt with this matter, we would advise anyone in the same position that you truly understand what it means to sell a business.
