What our clients are saying 

"If you need a Business Broker who genuinely cares and keeps constant, honest contact Kevin Lovewell is the one you want to speak to.

I highly recommend Kevin Lovewell at Negotia Group. The process of selling our business has been a long and eventful road. There have been scenarios and queries thrown at us by purchasers that we didn’t see coming, and Kevin had an answer or resolution for all of them. 
The transition of enquiry to contract then to settlement requires a momentous amount of due diligence, most of which was completed before the business was put on the market making the sale processes stress-free and streamlined.

Our business was our life for many decades and Kevin showed the passion, interest and enthusiasm we didn’t expect from a Business Broker. He cared. Kevin called us weekly with Market updates or contract information. Even when nothing eventful was taking place, he still
called to check in.

If you’re thinking about selling your business or finding out what it’s worth, pick a Business Broker and Company who care about your business and its people. Kevin of Negotia Group ticked all the boxes for us."

“Now that all the dust has settled and we are slowly adjusting to this new reality, Ron and I just wanted to take the time to thank you so very much for all that you did to make the sale of our little business a success. We appreciated your attention and replies to our emails and phone calls. Thank you for your patience in explaining what was going on each step of the way.

Although we know that this is your line of business and we paid you for your expertise, we just wanted to say that the whole experience was a pleasant one and we are so grateful that we found you to help us.

Thank you to you and the team there at Negotia.”

I just wanted to let you know how much we appreciated your work in helping us sell our business. We very much needed your knowledge of the process involved and you helped us successfully navigate a long and at times complex job.

Thanks, and Well Done.

"Over a considerable period of time, while looking for prospective purchasers, and then supervising the process of actual change of ownership of our business, Graham was supportive and helpful.

As a professional, he steered us through the minefields of current legislation and legal requirements. Advising calmly and concisely, or recommending other professionals for specialist roles.

He acted as conduit between purchaser and seller, including lawyers and accountants, taking the personal time-consuming hassles out of the whole process.

I couldn’t have started on this process without Grahams help, and certainly would never have completed a satisfactory sale without him.

I can unreservedly recommend Graham to you, for sincere, professional, honest and clear-cut advice. And a great result."

“After spending many months, time and money trying to sell my business it was a welcome relief when I discovered Graham Long. The support and advice which was available was instrumental to the sale of my business. Graham Long was, in a word, unbelievable. He demonstrated his experience and knowledge of everything from valuations to marketing and ongoing advice. The manner in which he conducted business was efficient and professional at all times. In contrast to other business brokers, the cost was fair and reasonable and the service was second to none, he went above and beyond what was expected.

I would more than recommend using Graham and his business to anyone looking to sell their business!”

Peter B.

“I asked Graham Long of Negotia Group to undertake a business valuation for me to ascertain the value of my business. The Report was to have two purposes;

To indicate the market value of the business for shareholders; and

To form the basis of planning the future direction and strategies for the business.

The Report was a complete assessment of the physical nature of the business, its financial information and the present state of the Small to Medium Enterprise market. It fulfilled both its purposes from my point of view.

I would recommend Graham Long as a capable business valuer, especially in the Small to Medium Enterprise businesses.”

"We had been in business for approx. 4.5 years and while we were growing and making money, I had up to that point had basically no idea about financials or marketing. It was time to actually feel in control. Kevin has helped me double the size of our business in 2 ½ years. I’m much more confident in my decisions and the daily running of our business. PLUS, I can see past tomorrow. He has helped me set goals and achieve them.

He has helped me manage some really difficult business decisions in the last 9 months. Using his advice and guidance but giving me the confidence to approach these tasks in my own style. Business doesn’t have to be a MAN’S WORLD.

The thing that I like the most about my time with Kevin is, he makes me accountable. Sometimes you need a push in the right direction. We can do it for our employees but it’s much harder to do it for ourselves.

For anyone sitting on the fence thinking about getting yourself a Business Coach/Mentor, get out of your own way! You DO have the time. It WILL help you to grow your business."
