"I have been aware for many years that Anthony Gilbert is the go to person in the Auckland marketplace for buying or selling a child care business. Anthony approached me about a year or so before we decided to sell our childcare business, and offered a no obligations assessment of how our business was running, compared to industry norms. I took him up on this, and he helpfully pointed out some areas of efficiency and inefficiency that he observed. He also talked about the business’s likely market value, and without any pressure let me know that should we consider selling in future, he’d be very happy to assist us. Over time, and with a number of discussions, we decided that we would be prepared to sell, but only to the right sort of buyer, and only if there was no advertising of the business throughout the market place. Anthony was very respectful of this, and prepared a confidential memorandum for promotion to his database of potential buyers. Ultimately this resulted in a sale which we were happy with.
Anthony is a no nonsense operator, who moves quickly and efficiently. We were updated regularly on the process, and felt that all likely prospects had been appropriately vetted, and were genuine potential purchasers. We were happy with the outcome, and naturally would have no hesitation in recommending his services."
