Scott's testimonial

"Greg and Scott assisted us in purchasing a business in 2022. We had identified a business we were interested in, and Greg and Scott worked on our behalf to put together a deal with the business owners. We found Greg and Scott to be both thorough and professional, displaying attention to detail and indeed the perseverance that really helped the sale reach the conclusion we were happy with. I am pleased we engaged with Greg and Scott to make this happen."

Leonard Gardner Director - Fosters Construction

"We appointed Scott to list and market our Taupo Service station in 2021. We were very happy with how he dealt with all of the enquiries received, and he eventually found us the right buyer. He worked hard and communicated well throughout the sale process. His knowledge and experience was vital in ensuring the sale was completed, and everyone was happy."

Kelvin and Miriam Bradley - Caltex Taupo

"Scott was a pleasure to work with during the recent sale of our Hire and Water services business. He understood the requirement to find the right type of buyer at the right price and did a fantastic job of matching us with the perfect purchasers for a stress free win-win outcome, which is what you hope for when selling a business."
