"It is with pleasure that we provide Gary England with a letter of recommendation regarding the professional service he and his team delivered to us in our recent acquisition of a childcare centre. The directors of Kippmere Pty Ltd met Gary earlier in 2008 regarding the purchase of a childcare centre in Cairns. Gary represented the vendors as their selling agent and also displayed a great deal of commitment in offering his assistance wherever possible to ensure we were kept informed and up to date at all time. Gary is a person who is committed to achieving successful outcomes. He has a ‘can do' approach and we felt the entire transaction from start to finish felt seamless. We would no doubt recommend Gary to any prospective vendors and/or purchasers who were after an agent with great business acumen who is professional and honest in all of his business dealings. "

"Again we write to thank you for the great service offered to us during our recent purchase of Leaktech Australia. After we sold our former business using your company, we didn't even bother to look anywhere else when we decided to buy again. As you know, we have previously used another “high profile” Sunshine Coast broker to sell a business and we therefore have a direct comparison. In reality, there are limited comparisons as dealing with you is quite stress-free. No high pressure to buy. No pressure to hurry. That is what buyers want. Naturally with all business purchases, some difficult moments arose during the negotiations prior to contract signing but we felt those issues couldn't have been dealt with in a better fashion. Your assistance during the Due Diligence period was also invaluable. It appears that your assessment of Leaktech Australia, was very accurate and we have definitely bought a quality business which is obviously the market leader. Thank you again and feel free to use this letter as a testimonial if you wish. "

"Thank you for all your assistance with the successful purchase of my new business. It has been a year since I first walked into your office to enquire about buying a business. In all that time you have provided a consistently high level of service and assistance to me as a prospective purchaser, as well as encouragement when I was struggling to find the right opportunity. When you listed Enzed you were acting on behalf of the vendor, however you continued to assist me through the process and your support and knowledge was integral to me successfully completing the purchase. During my search I had contact with most of the business sales agents on the coast and you are the stand-out business for service, quality of information and knowledge of the market. I have no hesitation in recommending you and your team to anyone looking to purchase a business on the Sunshine Coast."

“We are delighted with our purchase. The conduct of you and your team was impeccable. Your professionalism and ethics were evident from the outset. You were most informative at our inspections and had a thorough understanding of the business you were selling. The road from signing a contract to settlement can be a stressful one, however your negotiation skills meant that all issues raised, were dealt with decorum and in a timely manner. We are thrilled with our purchase and would highly recommend you to anyone looking to purchase a business.”

“We are pleased to provide this letter of recommendation of the expertise and services provided by Harvey Weyman-Jones and his team. As first-time business purchasers, we were reliant on Harvey's understanding of our needs and requirements in support of our change of lifestyle decision. His professionalism, knowledge and personal approach throughout the purchase process were invaluable as was his network of business associates who also provided friendly and efficient service. It is inevitable that buying a business will always be subject to risks and anxieties, but in our recent experience these were minimised as a result of the honesty and integrity of Harvey Weyman-Jones.”

“As both a purchaser and a seller, both Barry & I would like to thank you all for the exceptional service you have supplied. After having purchased the business twelve months ago (Coastal Physiotherapy) our other business in the mean while had doubled its turnover, which had meant all of a sudden I had double the work load in book work. Not planning to sell until we retired but realising it was all getting too much we decided to call you and get a rough idea of what it was worth. To our surprise the market was very strong and looked like we had a good chance of selling reasonably quickly and for more than we expected. We didn't hesitate to list it with you as the sole agent as we knew it would be presented in a way that was very attractive to any future buyers. Well they proved that their reputation was again exceptional and had a buyer within one to two weeks of the advertisements being published. Again we thank you all for your great effort and would recommend to anyone thinking of using you to give them a go, as you won't be disappointed with their honest & very enthusiastic approach.”

“I originally purchased Kerada Tubestock Nursery through you in 1999. My first contact with you was when I came to Queensland to inspect the property and business. My family and I were in the process of migrating to Australia from South Africa on a 127 business visa and the purchase of the right business to ensure we received permanent residency in this country was of paramount importance to us. I was particularly impressed with your professional manner in regard to explaining valuations, sale process and contract procedures – especially as I was new to Australia. The sale was actually negotiated while I was back in South Africa and you were able to formulate a deal whereby the then owners would remain to manage the business until our family was able to move to Australia. Gary and the other members of your team stayed in contact over the years and my son actually attended a seminar on “Increasing the value of your business” last year. When the decision to sell came (we are relocating to Victoria) I naturally contacted you to arrange a valuation and discuss a suitable marketing strategy. The professional presentation of our business and property was first class and you located a buyer within one week of listing and successfully negotiated our desired sale price. The sale settled at the beginning of this financial year and we are now able to plan our future ‘down south'. I strongly recommend you to anyone wishing to sell or buy a business.”
