“I wish to thank Karl most sincerely for the great effort and skills that he demonstrated in the pre and post successful sale of the Hydraflow Industries business.

It was a very professional and meaningful approach to all of the factors and details required and for which I am truly appreciative. As such I would have no hesitation in recommending his services to any potential business seller or even a buyer as well.”

Kevin Anderson – Hydraflow Industries


"I can highly recommend Karl for selling a business.
Having not sold a business before, Karl made the process less of a challenge than we expected. The advice he provided was invaluable and his support was exceptional.
Karl worked hard to find us the right potential buyers with the help of smart marketing which produced genuine interest and offers resulting our business selling much quicker than we anticipated."

Mark Little – Parsons Electrical


"Having never sold a business before, we were unsure of what to expect. Karl made the whole process very easy from start to finish, handling all aspects of the sale in a way that represented our business in the best light to potential buyers, and giving us good advice along the way based on his relevant experience.
Within a few weeks, the business was sold and we couldn't have asked for a smoother transition to the new owners.
The whole process turned out to be easy and a lot less time consuming and stressful than we had anticipated, due in the most part to Karl."

Jessica and Liam Donaldson – Betsy Cafe


"Karl knew the type of business we had right from the start and the people who were likely to buy it. He knew how to market it and wrote it up extremely well. His advice on the media options proved to be right on the nail. In a very short period of time we had two excellent offers, one of which we naturally accepted.

Throughout the whole process Karl kept us in touch with everything. Overall it was a much less stressful experience than we imagined at the start.

Karl is well recommended."

Lindsay and Ron – Plantwell Garden Services


"I’d been to numerous seminars on selling businesses but got confused by all the jargon. Karl was recommended by our accountant and from the first meeting, I felt at ease with him. He was focused and enthusiastic and within a month the business sold. Karl has great experience and dedication to achieving results – I would recommend his services to anyone."

Colin & Lynette Kenchington – Doors 'R' Us Limited


"Having grown the business beyond our expectations we decided it was the right time to test the market for potential buyers. To do this we wanted to engage with someone who had the right skill set to achieve a positive outcome. Karl’s approach was professional and reassuring, giving us confidence, he was the right person for the job. He detailed his approach and put together a comprehensive marketing plan which brought several buyers to the table, resulting in a successful sale at a value we are really happy with. If you are looking to sell we would definitely recommend Karl."  

Mahendra Dahya – Venttech Limited


“Karl was instrumental in helping us sell our business. He did a very good job of keeping all parties informed and as a result the business sold in an exceptionally short time frame. We would definitely recommend Karl”.  

Virginia and Paul Green – Tawa Mower and Heating


“Karl was very easy to deal with and made things very clear for us when selling our business, talking us through the entire process start to finish. It was unbelievable how quick he got the business sold and how it made the experience stress free! I recommend Karl he is an expert!”

Stephen Blowes – Primed Plumbing


“Right from our first phone call and then initial meeting with Karl we felt comfortable that he was the person to sell our business.  We figured if we would buy a business from him then others would also enjoy his honest but friendly approach.

What we enjoyed most was that he became excited about the opportunity that he had to offer someone and he could see real value in what we had worked so hard to build over 10 years in the business.  It was like he was one of our staff / part of our team from the outset.

He gave us his true opinion in how best to market the business and we agreed with him in that you can’t sell a secret, so a full marketing campaign was undertaken and we were delighted with the final video presentation and the wording he used to best describe the opportunity he was selling.

It didn’t take long and he had several interested parties and a sale was imminent.  Karl took all the stress and hard work out of what we thought was going to be a long and time-consuming process.  We were able to just continue on in our day to day running of the business with minimal interruption and things continued to run smoothly.  Surprisingly it wasn’t the scary, negative process we thought it would be and a lot of this we felt was down to Karl’s ability to handle the sale in the manner that he did.

We wouldn’t hesitate in recommending Karl to anyone considering putting their business on the market now or in the future.  We highly recommend just having a chat to him.  He will put you at ease. We decided to move forward with our sale much sooner than we initially thought we would because of Karl’s great skills and attributes and we are so glad we did.”

Ben & Yvette Peterson – KiwiSpan Wellington & Kapiti


"I highly recommend working with Karl Jenner if you want to sell your business.

Thanks to his support we made a swift and lucrative sale. He was really easy to work with and he made the process clear and simple.  I've no hesitation in recommending him."
