Our company was looking for an IT type business to complement our existing portfolio.  Lester de Vere from ABC Business Sales was approached as they listed such a company for sale.  In a prompt and thoroughly professional manner Lester introduced us to this business, all aspects of the business were presented. We later decided to put in an offer to purchase.  Lester informed us of the process including the fact there were multiple offers on the table and fortunately for us ours was accepted.  All through the due-diligence phase Lester kept us informed and even at the 11th hour when there was a minor glitch that required legal definition, Lester came to the rescue!  We were impressed with Lester’s diligent approach throughout the process right through to settlement, it was a pleasure working with him and I would recommend to anyone buying or selling a business to approach Lester de Vere at ABC.

If you are considering selling your business, you need to talk to Lester de Vere. From the very start, Lester was amazing to deal with. He clearly explained the process, identified key areas of consideration for the potential buyers, as well as for us as the sellers. Lester also demonstrated amazing understanding and insight throughout the sale. I could not recommend Lester highly enough.
