Far Exceeded Our Expectations

“Working with Tom and Dave at BMI was a real pleasure.  They were reasonable, realistic, supportive, and most importantly, knowledgeable about our business and our industry.  Selling a business, and especially a family business, is complex.  BMI far exceeded our expectations in the way of buyer interest and service and their integrity in doing so was unparalleled.”

Glad that we trusted Cliff Panneton from BMI

Cliff gave a lot of good advice to follow, including how and what to invest my time in, what to spend money on wisely, and how to train my employees to work more independently.  This is what I am most thankful for.  Business advice that I can take with me no matter what I do in the future. As far as the sale goes, Cliff was always available and answered any calls promptly.  He explained everything thoroughly and clearly.  I am glad that we trusted Cliff Panneton from BMI.  Because of Cliff, we were able to profit from the many years of hard work invested into the bakery.  We would definitely recommend Cliff for anyone trying to sell a business of any type or size.

In A Very Difficult Market BMI Was Able To Obtain Two Very Good Offers

When we decided to retire, I tried unsuccessfully to sell my commercial printing business myself. In a very difficult market BMI was able to obtain two very good offers for my business. The transaction was complicated, but BMI worked closely with everyone to get the deal done. I highly recommend Tom Kerchner and Dave Clark at BMI when you need to sell your business.

I Would Highly Recommend Dave Clark and Tom Kerchner

I want to acknowledge the efforts the BMI group made to assist me in selling my recycling equipment company. They brought several qualified buyers, and from beginning to end, were there to manage the process so I was able to remain focused on my business. They handled themselves in a professional way throughout the engagement and guided me every step of the way, through to the closing. I would highly recommend Dave Clark and Tom Kerchner at BMI when you want professional representation selling your business.

It Was A Pleasure Working With You

I wanted to write this letter to thank BMI for all the hard work throughout the sale of my business. It was the first time I had been through the selling process and you made sure I fully understood each step along the way. Selling my business was one of the biggest decisions I had to make and represented the culmination of many years of hard work. When it came time to select a broker it was very important for me to have a large degree of trust, knowledge and professionalism. From our first meeting I felt confident BMI could deliver on all three. BMI qualified potential buyers accurately to avoid wasting anyone's time and when the eventual buyer of my business came to the table, I knew he was carefully interviewed and was really the right type of buyer for my company. In the future, when the time comes once again to sell a business you can be certain I will call BMI first. In addition if I ever know anyone else in need of an honest professional business broker I will send them to BMI. Thanks again, it was a pleasure working with you.

I Would Recommend Tom And BMI For Any Commercial Transaction

Mr. Tom Kerchner and BMI facilitated the purchase my company made of an existing water/fire/mold mitigation company. His organization, timely communication and follow up in all aspects of the transaction made the purchase and transition seamless and problem free. I would recommend Tom and BMI for any commercial transaction.

Tom Is The Type Of Person We Would Want Selling Our Business Someday

Our experience with Tom Kerchner was as a business buyer. The best way to sum up our experience buying from Tom is that he is the type of person we would want selling our business someday. He is bright, positive, insightful, patient, creative, resilient and has a strong follow-up and follow-through. He is a high integrity guy who shoots straight and nudges you along the way without driving you off with a hard sell. There is much to consider when buying or selling a business. The broker is in most cases the first voice and face of the business. Tom understands that responsibility and lives up to it thoroughly.

We Were Very Impressed With BMI’s Work Every Step Of The Way.

BMI Mergers & Acquisitions handled a recent sale of our information management business. We were very impressed with BMI’s work every step of the way. They prepared a marketing book which represented our company well, they pre-qualified all of the prospects that we met with, they gave us guidance on what information to prepare, and they stayed in constant communication with us and with the buyer throughout the entire process. BMI’s specialized knowledge and experience were essential to us completing the sale and ending up with terms that worked well for all parties. On a more personal level, Dave and Tom are pleasant, professional, respectful, and truly a pleasure to work with. Jeff and Sheila O'Connell

Dave And Tom Did A Great Job Marketing The Business And Finding Several Very Well-Qualified Buyers

I decided to sell my successful IT Staffing company in early 2013, and engaged BMI Mergers & Acquisitions to handle the process. BMI Mergers was referred to me by a friend who utilized their services on the purchase side of a business in the past. I had a unique set of circumstances, in that I am relatively young and wanted to stay with the acquiring company to continue my career. Dave and Tom did a great job of marketing the business and finding several very well qualified buyers that I had a chance to meet with and interview to find the best match. They represented my business well, helped me through the selling process from beginning to end, and worked with me as I was deciding what opportunity was best for my future. The sale went through to a very solid company and the entire process took a little over six months. I would recommend BMI Mergers to anyone wanting professional representation when selling their business. They have a great deal of experience and handled every issue that came up. I thought the deal that we finalized was fair for everyone and I was very pleased with the results. Mike Russo, Diversified Technical Solutions, Inc.
