CORE Acquired by a Strategic Buyer

Mike Wheelock & Nacia Dahl of Sunbelt Business Advisors represented CORE Respiratory Services of Minnesota when they decided to sell their business.

As the Buyer, Chuck Stadler Jr., the President/CEO commented: “Mike is someone with a great understanding of the process of buying and selling a business, especially when there are extenuating circumstances (what deal doesn’t have those?). It quickly changed to a more hands on approach with the encouragement of Mike, I flew out to the twin cities to meet Mike, Nacia, and the CORE team.”

If you are a business owner thinking about selling your privately-held small business or a buyer looking to buy a business, these guys are top shelf professionals. Billed as the largest business brokerage in the world, Sunbelt has a full slate of businesses for sale. They have a process that is time-tested and allows both seasoned and rookie buyers to succeed in getting to the closing table with a business owner. Because of their size (worldwide exposure) they have access to thousands of business listings and an equal amount of buyers.

If you’re a business owner, they do all the heavy lifting, screening buyers and helping you achieve maximum value in the least amount of time. These things do take time!

As a five-time business owner myself, working with a broker has many advantages: both as a seller and a buyer.

Conveniently located just behind Brookfield Square mall, their office is professional and offers an atmosphere that is highly confidential; all meetings are held behind closed doors.

Josh C. – Owner, Culver’s Painting

“We worked with Ed and his team to sell our (residential and commercial painting) business. They were extremely knowledgeable and determined in helping us meet our goals. We highly recommend Sunbelt.”

Andy I., Elk River, MN – Promotional Products

“I was very pleased with Peggy (DeMuse) and your staff. It became apparent right away that you had the resources not only to sell my company, real estate, and assets, but you had the expertise to organize the process with all the documentation, experience, knowledge. I never ever had the feeling that I was alone in the sales process.

The best thing is that the new management is what I had asked for. I feel that Peggy and the Sunbelt staff thoroughly listened to my wishes and found exactly who I wanted.”

Mark S., Milwaukee, WI

“The Milwaukee office of Sunbelt Business Brokers was far and away the most proactive firm I dealt with in my year-long search for the right business. I was impressed by, and appreciated the energy every one of their people put into helping me find the business, and just as importantly, put into helping with due diligence and moving through closing.

Sunbelt’s experience and advice was invaluable, and the network of professionals they introduced to me will be a big help moving forward.”

Stephen S., DDS and Tami J., Office Manager – Albert Lea Dental

“Working with Sunbelt Midwest Business Advisors has been beyond a positive experience. Slater and Krivo are so easy to work with. They are professional, efficient, and you always know the priority is you, the client. They keep the process positive and help you with every step along the way.  They far exceeded our expectations!”

Bruce B., Las Vegas – Architectural Firm

“Your Confidential Business Review for us is a real masterpiece. Everything there was useful and nothing appeared to be missing. It pre-answered every single question we could think of. This is just the sort of information that I would hope to see when we get packages from Intermediaries. In fact, I would say it is the best package I have seen, after looking at quite a number from various sources.”

Jim G., Milwaukee

“The ease of knowing that there was a real organization worrying about selling the business allowed me to operate my business and continue to grow and prosper. Once the buyers were on board the real help began. The counseling that was provided was second to none and that really helped speed us through to closing.”

I was looking to sell my business and interviewed three candidates to manage my sale. After considering all three, I was most comfortable with Mike Slater at Sunbelt. Mike was very helpful in and understood the complexities of selling a healthcare business.Her worked with both myself, and the buyer to educate us of the process and what we should expect as the transaction progressed. Both the buyer, and I were very impressed with the communication throughout the transaction.Mike assisted the buyer in obtaining necessary fund needed to facilitate our deal. All around, I would rate Mike Slater and Sunbelt a solid #10!James MileyFormer PresidentSymphony Senior Services, Inc

Randy Krivo is the consummate professional. His dedication and attention to detail are second to none. He is very organized and has a calm yet motivating demeanor. He worked closely with us through the entire transaction and was always available including evenings and weekends. From the evaluation process to the closing of the sale we knew Randy’s expertise in the optometric industry made him the right person for the job. His ability to collect, analyze and present our financial data was instrumental in creating value and interest in potential buyers and bankers. We actually had 3 interested parties within a month of listing our business which resulted in a full price offer. Highly recommended!

Selling a business can be a daunting task. Keith did a wonderful job establishing an asking price for the business, qualifying potential buyers, setting ground rules for professional communication and ensuring the deal made it to the finish line. We appreciate Sunbelt's professionalism and willingness to keep goodwill even when we backed out of a couple deals that weren't quite right.

Recently worked with Peggy Demuse to sell the company I had held for 30 years. At first I was simply impressed. Then a glitch came along at closing, as they often do. The way in which Sunbelt took care of me is simply not heard of now days. I found myself going from impressed to OVER THE MOON AMAZED. If you are the President of a company, spinning in your chair, wondering "what's next", call her. Thank you team Sunbelt

Sunbelt and Lisa Meyer did a great job helping me buy my new business. Lisa's expertise in guiding me through the process was instrumental in a smooth transition. Their finance department made the process simple of getting a loan. If you are looking to buy or sell a business in the future, I would strongly recommend Lisa and Sunbelt.

Trustworthy, dependable, reliable, determined, knowledgeable, confident and effective. The successful decision to sell my unique family business was only possible with help from the most incredible team I could have ever asked to know. Matt Schroder and Jeff Mills changed my life. Finding an ethical broker team to guide me through unknown waters was an experience I will never forget. Worry-free retirement here I come. My deepest thanks for always going above and beyond, because that's just how you two do.

Sunbelt is by far one of the best in the industry! Their brokers are on point and they get the deal done. I was looking for a new business and closed the deal within 4 months. I recommend talking to Brad Peterson if you are looking to buy or sell a business!
Keith Payne did a phenomenal job in managing our acquisition deal. He kept us updated and handled the details and changes we encountered in a timely and professional manner. I would highly recommend Keith and his office!

My wife and I read about Sunbelt Business Advisors in the May issue of Insurance Minnesota and decided to give Keith Payne a call. After meeting Keith and deciding the time was right, we listed our agency for sale with Sunbelt. We have been happy with that decision.Sunbelt and Keith assisted us every step of the way from valuing our agency, advertising the prospective sale, helping us interview interested prospects and working through all details of the final sale. At the end of the day, we felt that Sunbelt offered us the expertise we needed in order to market and sell our agency to the right buyer at the right price. Our experience was very positive and we are comfortable giving Sunbelt, and Keith, our highest recommendation.
