Happy business seller…Yes I couldn’t be happier with Merchant Business Brokers whom have just finalised the sale of my business and property. Being able to sell both the business and the property at the one time was really convenient, all handled professionally by the one company. Thank you to Shane Fox and Ian Jones for their guidance and expert knowledge of the selling process.

We can thoroughly recommend Shane and the team at Merchant Business Brokers. They have been extremely thorough and professional from the first contact. They understand the process and protect business owners from unnecessary interruptions and tyre kickers.
Their contact with both seller and buyer is exceptional.

When I decided to sell my business, it seemed to be a very daunting process until I went and met with Ian Jones. He made the whole process so easy and was fantastic to work with. Professional, organised, hardworking and friendly. Ian went above and beyond what was necessary and I would highly recommend him without hesitation if you are thinking of selling your business!
