Working as a Business Sales Consultant for LINK, the largest business brokerage network in Australia, I assist with facilitating the sale of businesses ethically, confidentially and with the utmost integrity to connect the right buyers with the right businesses.
LINK has one of the most comprehensive and sophisticated databases of registered buyers in the country and have sold over $2 billion worth of businesses; from small retailers through to international companies. We have been tracking and analysing business sale trends for many years and are one of the only companies to conduct regular independent research to determine the motivations of potential buyers and identify the key issues that are important to your business. Using this exclusive information resource, LINK can provide significant insights into the crucial factors affecting the marketing and sale of your business.
With the right industry knowledge, my value comes by helping you step back and view your business through the 'buyer's eyes', then make any required changes to boost value, ensuring your business is sales ready.
Having sold our café in September 2017 for more than the price we were after we would highly recommend Marco Gentili who acted as our agent. We found Marco to be honest, reliable, efficient and professional throughout the whole experience. Marco worked as per our requests which included showing the café to prospective buyers as early as 6:00am on a Sunday morning and as late as 9:00pm during weekdays. He very effectively managed all stakeholders involved including solicitors, the landlord, potential buyers, the ultimate purchaser and even ourselves as the vendors as we admittedly were not easy to deal with at times. He made the sales process a very simple and fluid process. He handled all potential buyers and we did not have to screen or evaluate any expressions of interest. In the end he was able to achieve a price for us beyond what we originally asked for. We look forward to working with Marco again in the future when we look to buy and or sell our next business or businesses.
