Thank you for making the process of selling my business easy for me and staying with it longer than we anticipated throughout this COVID environment. I am totally pleased with the outcome of the sale.
I would highly recommend Brent Bressler of Bressler Ventures LLC to anyone considering selling their business. In the months that Brent marketed my business, he maintained confidentiality and consistently looked out for my best interests. He kept me informed of any meaningful development or potential snag throughout the entire sales process. When there was an issue or problem, he was quick to respond and put out the fires.
I appreciate the continued follow through with the buyers during the transition phase to help keep all parties on the same page.
Job well done; I couldn’t be happier!

His attention to detail and follow-up were instrumental… Call backs and requests for information were handled promptly and courteously by both Brent and his office; not once in a very lengthy process were we ever waiting on actions or
information from them. Not only are we happy to serve as a reference for Bressler Ventures, but we also hope to secure their services again in the future.”

“Thanks for your efforts over the past year in helping sell our business. Your company did a great job in finding the correct buyer, even in the midst of the COVID pandemic. The sale was kept quiet up until the very end, allowing us to let employees and customers know of the sale in our preferred timeframe.
You made the transition process very easy, always being on top of the details and conveying what we needed to do next.
Thanks for delivering what you said you would.”

“As you know, buying a business has been an entirely new process for me and my husband. It wasn’t until we got in touch with you that we actually felt like we had someone on our side. That may sound funny since we know in this case, your first priority is in representing the seller, but we feel like you have our best interest at heart also. You aren’t just trying to make a sale. Of course, you want to get the business sold for your client, but you also want to make sure it is the right decision for us. These actions say a lot about you and your integrity. We aren’t paying you a dime, yet I know you would advise us against buying a business that wasn’t a good fit.
I hope the seller realizes how hard you’re working for him—if he doesn’t, he should. Today you hear a great deal about customer service, ironically good customer service usually just isn’t there. We are so impressed with you and the excellent service we have received from you. When I call I know that if you don’t answer the phone, you will be getting back to me as soon as possible…usually within minutes. When I request information, I know that if at all possible you will get that for me as well. Thank you for all your help, expertise, and facilitation for a very mutually agreeable transaction between us and the seller.”
— Julia & Jim Benson
“Thank you for your professional expertise in assisting me in the sale of my business. Your diligence in pursuing the right buyer and guiding everyone involved to a successful conclusion made it all happen.”
— R. C. Edwards
“You and your office followed through with everything you said you were going to do. I don’t find that to happen very often today in customer service anywhere. I was impressed with your follow through.”
— S. Bemard
“I have been very pleased to have Brent Bressler represent my company as broker. He is professional and kept me informed on a regular basis as to how the progress was going. When I received an offer and went under contract, he kept close tabs on the progress and let me know each step of the way, how things were going. I would give Brent 5 stars.”
— Stew Stephens, SB Woodworking, Inc.
“I would like to thank Brent for assisting in a quick and satisfying sale of my business. The first time I met Brent was 2007 when he sent a client that was interested in our type of business. At that point in time I was not really ready to sell. However, I stayed in contact all the years with Brent and when ready to sell he was the one I called. After dealing with other brokers in the past as they approached us with potential buyers, I can say my experience with Brent and Bressler Ventures was a pleasurable one. I spoke with Brent in November of 2013 and by late January and early February 2014 we had 4 very good offers. We closed with the one that we thought was best on March 3. Again, thanks Brent for orchestrating our sale.”
— Butch Butler, Butler Welding & MFG
“I would highly recommend Brent Bressler to anyone seeking the expertise of a business intermediary/broker. Brent’s knowledge and skill in managing both the buy side and the sell side of transactions are superior. He is extremely well-versed in various financing scenarios and works closely with his clients to help them realize their dreams, whether it is owning a business or moving on to retirement or to other ventures. Many transactions fall apart for the wrong reasons. Brent communicates directly with all the parties involved in a transaction making himself available to them to successfully expedite the process. As a lender representative, I have the advantage of interacting with our underwriters, closing attorneys, seller and buyer attorneys as well as various accountants and brokers. Brent maintains control of his transactions and is always one step ahead of the next problem. He understands potential stumbling blocks and works out several solutions to the potential problems in order to ensure a successful closing. Brent is professional, hard working and enthusiastic in his work and I find
it quite refreshing to work with him.”

“A year ago we tried to sell our business ourselves and went through a mess of waiting and paperwork, only to have the deal fall apart. Within just a few weeks you had a qualified buyer and the transaction was completed…you care more for the people than the sale…what a difference it makes to trust a professional.”
— M. & J. Richards
“Throughout the many dozens of communications we had, you brought a sincere forthright down-to-earth approach to the process…and, always in a timely manner. I especially appreciated the fact that you treated all questions with a high degree of respect and always diligently supplied answers; and that includes those from the ultimate buyer…Thank you again, Brent and be assured that I would gladly serve as a positive reference for any of your future clients.”
