Since joining LINK, Anika has proved that she is a capable, experienced, and professional business broker, always striving to represent her clients and LINK with professionalism and credibility and not shying away from hard work.

To date, she has negotiated great outcomes for her clients in a wide range of industries – especially those in Services, Manufacturing and Engineering, including some complex multi-million dollars business sales.

Prior to becoming a business broker, Anika was ‘on the ground’ as an experienced business owner of some 20 years and the firms she owned included boutique firms of just 5 staff and larger concerns ranging up to 120 personnel.

Being some-what independent and entrepreneurial Anika understands the time, energy and resources invested in your business and the importance of a sale treated with utmost professionalism.  Thus, Anika is BIG on personal service, working with satisfying buyers and sellers alike.

Adaptable is what makes Anika a great business broker – a fast learner and great at defining what is important in a transaction.

When you talk to Anika – you can tell she is from South Africa. She and her husband John have been settled in Christchurch for some years now, enjoying New Zealand’s tranquillity and beauty.

 

 

"Anika Gamba managed the sale of our business in an efficient and friendly manner which resulted in a quick result. We were kept up to date with what was happening throughout… she's definitely knows what's she's doing! We were especially impressed with how Anika managed privacy around the sale. This was particularly important to us and she managed it very well."

"I found Anika Gamba to be very responsive, prompt and up front with information. She kept us up to date with progress and provided whatever information we needed throughout the process, so we knew where we stood at all times. Anika was pleasant and very easy to deal with, always ringing back, we weren't left waiting for long periods of time… she was very proactive in her approach to managing the sale of the business and the process was very straightforward with Anika.

We would highly recommend Anika Gamba and we have already referred her services to others since the sale of the business."

"We met Anika Gamba from LINK Mid-March 2020 and were sold. Anika won our trust and confidence immediately. She worked hard to understand our business and its place within the business sector, then worked even harder to present these benefits to a purchaser.  It was important to us that the sale was a win for both vendor and purchaser, and that fitted well with Anika’s approach.

She bought 11 times the number of interested parties to the table versus the previous agency we listed with and prepared 5 offers.  Even while under offer Anika had back-up offers in place.  These results were extraordinary given the escalation of Covid 19 during this period. Anika is one heck of an agent!

We found Anika to be a genuinely hardworking and honest broker with excellent communication skills, please make the time to meet with her.  You will not regret it."

"Anika was so easy to deal with, she is friendly and approachable and we felt we could go to her at any time with any queries we had.  She was also super professional, was quick and efficient, and her communication throughout the process was fantastic.  She made the business selling process a lot easier than we had anticipated.  We wouldn't hesitate to use Anika again in the future, and wouldn't hesitate to recommend her to anyone considering selling their business."

Testimonials

"I found Anika very professional with regards to negotiating the deal for us.  There were times when I felt frustrated about the level of information, she would provide but from the vendors point of view she was doing her job and not giving anything away she shouldn’t in the way of information. Therefore, I would recommend her to any vendors wanting to sell their business as she certainly has their best interests at heart."

"I can highly recommend Anika as she managed the (sale) process conscientiously, diligently and with dogged determination in a pleasant and supportive manner. It is useful to have her motivation assisting both sides of the deal to help them through the long, rigorous periods while they still have to do their day jobs. 

What we liked the most, working with Anika, was her diligence in managing the process and maintaining forward momentum toward a conclusion.  She kept in touch with both the vendor and purchaser, checking for issues and overcoming them early or calling them out for the other party to attend to. 

The major benefit in using Anika, was having a conscientious advocate managing the process and ensuring forward progression to an outcome. Another significant advantage was that she worked with the vendor to prepare their business and the information required to sell it.  This effort also included supporting the vendor’s motivation to sell and helping them through what must have appeared to be an arduous and long DD period. 

Well done, Anika thank you again for your very helpful and useful support!"

"We used Anika Gamble from Link to sell our pregnancy testing of livestock business in Taranaki. 

We found Anika to be very helpful in every aspect of the sale.  She gave us advice on matters that we had never encountered before and virtually held our hand through the entire process from start to finish.  Anika is very professional but at the same time very approachable and friendly.

We highly recommend using Anika and the company she works for to anyone considering selling their business."

“I have been lucky enough to use Anika’s business broking services on two separate occasions now. Once to sell my business and secondly to purchase a new business. In both situations I have found Anika to be approachable, open, honest and professional. The sale of my business was complicated and protracted and Anika managed the process incredibly well. The purchase was a much smoother scenario that Anika managed very efficiently. I would highly recommend Anika to anyone wanting to buy or sell their business… you will not find a business broker more professional and hard-working than Anika Gamba.”

"We would highly recommend Anika Gamba from LINK Business Brokers to sell your business for you. Anika conducted the sale process professionally and was always positive that she would find the right buyer for our business. Her willingness to follow up every lead in order to find that person was exemplary.  Friendly, confident and very knowledgeable in selling businesses, Anika guided us through what was a totally new experience and never gave up that she would get that result for us.  The fees charged were extremely reasonable and the marketing levels were many and varied so that we could choose what we were comfortable with. LINK Business Brokers are a very professional organisation that get the results you want."

“We couldn't be happier with Anika's service. We were totally at ease having Anika handle the sale of our business.  Once she had the required information from us, she handled everything from then on and we were more than happy to let her do so.  We completely trusted Anika and felt she really had our best interests at heart, Anika even got a higher price for us than what we were anticipating. 

We wouldn't hesitate to recommend Anika to anyone selling their business, she is highly professional and a pleasure to deal with.”

"Anika took the time to understand our business. She showed good to great brokering and negotiating skills on our behalf. During a reasonably unstable “buyers” market, Anika was able to create opportunities and interest for our business.

LINK had an extensive network of potential buyers for our business, and each opportunity was vetted carefully before presenting to us. This ensured our time and energy during the sale and purchase phase was directed at qualified and business ready operators.

Anika showed great flexibility and loyalty to us during the sale process, even calling in on progress while in South Africa on Holiday."
