What others think of Grant Jacobson:

Thank you so much for the excellent job you did with the sale of our business. We felt that working with you was a real partnership and you genuinely had our best interests at heart in getting us the best possible offer for our business which you succeeded in doing! Throughout the sale process you took the time to really get to know not only our business, so you could discuss all the details accurately with potential buyers, but also us personally which we appreciated. You always kept us in the loop and responded to our calls promptly which so many people don’t do these days? You recognised that knowing what was going on was important to us and you delivered on that. We are experienced business people and to be honest had doubts as to the value a broker would bring but your experience and knowledge throughout the process was invaluable. You were an excellent sounding board and made sure we approached the promotion, sale and negotiation of our business in a way that provided the best chance of success. Your honesty and integrity is second to none and we would highly recommend you to anyone selling or buying a business.

Testimonials

What others think of Grant Jacobson:

Grant was instrumental in finding a buyer for my automotive repair shop when others had failed to do so.
He remained in constant contact with me during the complexities of selling a business this current day and age, and from time to time assisted with liason between parties who seemed to think there was no urgency attached to this sale. Also, he was kind enough to offer good advice to others when it was found they were sadly lacking. His focus on getting the sale through to a happy conclusion for both parties was obvious, and this meant that the projected timetable was achieved.
Grant has a very pleasant demeanor with a ready smile and is good company to spend time with.
I recommend Grant Jacobson.
