Dan has played one of his favourite sports - soccer since the age of 6. As a teenager he played at a state level and represented Australia in 1997. He also volunteers as a soccer coach for disadvantaged youth players and he is about to commence his 5th year coaching soccer for Sydney University.
“When I ask a room full of people why did they get into business? I always hear answers like, I just simply love my job or I love the people I deal with or I wanted the freedom to be my own boss. I almost never hear anyone say they got into business to make money. The truth is there is so much emotion involved around business that everything can become personal. This is the exact reason why buyers and sellers need a professional perspective from outside their emotional circle. Your broker must have experience in your sector AND in running business.”

"I didn't think our café in Dee Why would sell, but Dan went the extra mile with the sale. Managing to overcome a number of difficult problems and pushing it though in time for Christmas. Just wanted to say thanks to him and LINK, Dan really came across as a strong broker and has done an amazing job which deserves a mention."
- Daniel O’Connell
"After being unsuccessfully listed with a local broker for a 12 month period I contacted LINK via their website (and several other brokers in the Sydney region). I chose LINK as the response was the most professional and within 24 hours. Original contact came from a manager who after some pertinent questions quickly and efficiently allocated an appropriate broker to us who understood our business. That was in October 2014 and we settled early March 2015. Our broker, Dan Levitus, worked very closely with us requesting relevant information to put together a package for marketing and prospective buyers. He always kept in contact during the period where he was sourcing and working with prospective buyers, keeping us informed all the way. The ground work he undertook I believe was essential to our successful sale, as he could qualify serious prospective buyers due to his now extensive knowledge of our business. This leading of course to a solid sale for us. Dan was always available for any queries from the first day to after settlement and has also followed up after the sale to ensure all is going well. Thanks again Dan I have already recommended you to other businesses."

"Dan Levitus provided a high level of professionalism, great industry knowledge and excellent communication during the sale of The Schnitzel Kitchen in Crows Nest. Overall it was a great experience working with Dan. The business was listed with another broker for several months without any leads at all but Link Business, in conjunction with Dan looking after the listing, was able to sell almost immediately once I listed with you."
- Adam J Gerondis, The Schnitzel Kitchen
"We recently worked with Dan for the sale of our business (a cafe), and were incredibly impressed with the speed and competence in which he found us potential buyers. Dan has a hardworking, can-do attitude and was willing to go the extra mile to ensure the sale went through. Dan was proactive and forward thinking - he has a wealth of knowledge in his field which meant he gave sound advice we felt secure to follow. We highly recommend Dan and would use him again."
