Testimonials for Mark Petersen


I could not have asked for a better result when selling my business. Mark Petersen  was direct and to the point at every step of the process. He gave me excellent advice and kept me up to date with every development while selling my business. Because of him, I received the full asking price and I am now able to move on. I have recommended him to others, and they too are now using him to achieve the same result.

We are writing to show our sincere appreciation for the excellent work you did selling our business. Your professional manner, which you displayed right from the start with our first meeting with you, could not be faulted.   You recommended “Sale by Set Date” – You had a PLAN of how you were going to sell the business, kept us informed at every step along the way, and followed through with it perfectly resulting in an excellent outcome for us at the end.  Your trustworthy manner made us feel the sale was “safe in your hands”.  

 Our business was an unusual business and you had it sold in 16 weeks and even after the contracts were signed you were still taking enquiries just in case.  You worked hard to sell our business, you were always punctual, respectful, polite and sensitive and brought definite potential buyers. You advised us when you felt we needed it, explained things as required and showed patience with us.  You took meticulous pride in how the photos and website presentation was carried out and wording thereon.

 Once again Mark, thanks very much for all the hard work and we would have no hesitation in recommending you to anyone who is contemplating selling their business, which we have already done and you have managed to sell it aswell.

Wishing you well in all future sales.

 In December we purchased a business through Business Sales Australia. The broker was Mark Petersen.

We had been looking for a business for 8 months and had numerous dealings with business brokers. The quality of business brokers is varied. Most brokers do not respond to requests for information and do not follow through on what they promise to do. It is very frustrating.
Mark Peterson, on the other hand, was in a totally different league. From the beginning he was extremely professional and built a strong rapport. He always did promptly what he said he would do and he never failed to call back quickly if we left a message. He was prepared to go the extra mile if needed.
Mark offered us support by connecting us to professionals who helped us navigate the purchase. His recommendations of lawyer and finance broker were very good and gave us confidence to proceed on our first business purchase. We were purchasing in a different state to our home which presented some barriers too. Mark was able to help us negotiate those barriers.

At one point we walked away from the business for a few weeks and pursued other businesses. After a month Mark followed us up and was able to re-engage us in negotiations. He was not pushy but was able to build on the rapport he had already established.
Mark worked very hard to get this sale. He was in regular communication with us and the seller helping us to negotiate the terms of the sale. We do not believe that any of the other brokers we had experience with could match his commitment and focus. His involvement was a crucial part of the success of the deal. We highly recommend him to anyone looking for a business broker.

Testimonials for Trevor Berry



“ Trevor approached us in 2010 at the height of the Global Financial Crisis to ask if we were considering selling to which I indicated we were and if he thought he had someone we could certainly discuss further. He replied that he didn’t have a buyer but if we worked together and did the right preparation and presented the business in a professional manner the buyer would come. The banks were tentative the buyers had large amounts stripped from their wealth so it was an uphill battle for such a large facility 983 units, but he kept updating the information as the business continued to grow. Fast forward January 2011 Cyclone Yasi arrives and flattens the economy yet again until mid-2012 and then the economy rebounds the occupancy grows by 30% the information is continually updated and then the buyer arrives as Trev has said.” Trevor as you know we settled the sale on the 20th December 2013 just before Christmas and I just want to thank for your unwavering commitment we know it was a long road but the results justify the efforts.
