About Anthony

While his range of expertise over the years has spanned a number of business sectors, since 2000 he has specialised in the childcare sector in which he is now the acknowledged industry expert. This level of expertise and success has established Anthony's credibility in the childcare industry which has owners approach him again and again as they either expand their businesses, or sell their business to retire or move into other market sectors.

As an expert broker, Anthony offers business owners a no-obligation appraisal of their business, and in many instances also suggests sensible alternatives to improving the operating efficiency of a business. This in turn gives rise to a business which is more valuable and easier to sell when the business owner is ultimately ready to take the business to market.






“I have sold a number centres through Anthony over the past 4 years.  Each sale was different as each centre was different and each time the appraisal price was achieved.  Anthony carefully selected qualified buyers that he believed were a good match to our centres and he and his assistant, Angella, were helpful throughout the process to both us and the buyers, making the process as efficient as possible.  Selling a business can be stressful and at times, feel invasive, but Anthony's no nonsense manner made us feel that we were in safe hands.  Ultimately, Anthony gets results, fast, with minimal stress or uncertainty, which all vendors, buyers and brokers want!  It’s a win win win.”

“When it came time to sell my centre I was aware that Anthony had 20+ years of skill and experience in selling childcare centres.  I also wanted to ensure discretion and felt confident that Anthony had the systems in place to ensure this, as well as a handle on the current market.  From the first appraisal meeting to start receiving offers took just 4 weeks!   Anthony had buyers at the ready which made it all very easy and achieved a premium sale price. The whole process ran very smooth.  Anthony and Angella always replied to my queries promptly, confidentially and with a positive attitude.”

"Working with Anthony Gilbert has been a very positive experience. He has understood our vision  very clearly and helped us find the perfect starting point to our journey. We bought our first childcare centre five years ago with his support and guidance,  Anthony has always given us the confidence that he is working for us. He offers ongoing support and we have often turned to him for advice on various situations. His many years of experience in the industry and his knowledge on different aspects of the business has supported us through our journey too.
We recently also sold off a business through him. The process was well drafted, very methodical and once again, very professional and seamless."
