To Whom It May Concern:

I recommend Michael Hubsmith at Sunbelt Business Advisors to owners considering the sale of their business.

I had the opportunity to work with Michael when he was representing the seller and I was representing the buyer of a telecom business. In our discussions, he displayed his knowledge and expertise in negotiation and conflict resolution. The transaction was complicated, and he acted as a good partner throughout the process to help us complete it.

I hope to have the opportunity to work with Michael again soon.

I can’t be more pleased with the work that was done by Sunbelt on getting my deal closed. They truly listened to what it was that I wanted to come out of the transaction and made it happen. I would confidently recommend them to anyone else looking to sell their business. Michael Hubsmith and team are the best out there.
