About Lester

When selling your business, you may well be selling an enterprise that you’ve spent many years building up and you now recognise that it’s time for someone else to take over the reins and put their energy and enthusiasm into it.

Having trust in your Business Broker is crucial for the sale of your business; believing he is the right person to represent you and your business is everything. Getting the best price, paying attention to detail and having respect, integrity and professionalism in all aspects of the transaction must be a given.

I can offer all of these qualities with confidence and assurance.

Preparing your business for sale is something I do. Understanding what a buyer is looking for is crucial in the sale of any business and with my existing network and database, I am able to get results that speak for themselves.

At the 2018 ABC Business Awards, Lester was awarded the ABC Trusted Advisor of the Year, and has been awarded the Auckland Salesperson of the Year in 2018 and 2020.

Lester's testimonial

"We recently engaged with Lester de Vere as the broker for a business we were interested in and ended up buying.

Lester was fantastic to deal with and he worked hard to bring both parties together to facilitate a successful transaction. He also extended advice once we had the business under contract to ensure a smooth transition. It was clear Lester was invested in the process and our/the business’ ongoing success.

I also know the vendors of the business are happy with his services as he got them a relatively quick sale for the full asking price. So, I can only thoroughly commend Lester both to sell and to purchase a business.

Proud new owners of Apex Fencing"

Bart Muylle - Purchaser APEX Fencing April 2023

"Our company was looking for an IT type business to complement our existing portfolio.  Lester de Vere from ABC Business Sales was approached as they listed such a company for sale.  In a prompt and thoroughly professional manner Lester introduced us to this business, all aspects of the business were presented. We later decided to put in an offer to purchase.  Lester informed us of the process including the fact there were multiple offers on the table and fortunately for us ours was accepted.  All through the due-diligence phase Lester kept us informed and even at the 11th hour when there was a minor glitch that required legal definition, Lester came to the rescue!  We were impressed with Lester’s diligent approach throughout the process right through to settlement, it was a pleasure working with him and I would recommend to anyone buying or selling a business to approach Lester de Vere at ABC."

Andrew - Nappies Direct

"We can’t thank you enough for selling our business! 21 years is a long time owning a stressful business. However, it was the quality of the person in you that made the process that much easier, your people skills and professionalism are second to none. You deserve every cent you receive.
Thanks forever!"

Geoff and Mandy - Splash Dive

"Lester was really helpful with mediation, trying to make sure the seller is looked after/happy and not just trying to sell the business for whatever to get a commission, and finding buyers very quickly for all of my business sales."
