“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.”

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

“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.”
