A selection of feedback from our past clients
“I approached Scott Devereux of One Business Brokers after receiving one of his mailout letters which had piqued my curiosity, and arrived at a point where I was considering selling my business. I engaged Scott shortly after a preliminary meeting, at which I was impressed with his advice and his candid no nonsense knowledge on business sales. I found this refreshing and rare as I had had discussions with other brokers prior to this.
Scott knew exactly what his approach to my ultimate success would be and quickly implemented a strategy to attract quality potential buyers – and indeed I discovered later had an extensive database of contacts and the ability to add plenty more. True to his prediction we had a succession of quality approaches and a firm offer within 6 weeks of going to market. Impressive work in my book.
Unfortunately (through no fault of Scott’s) our buyer fell over and he quickly went in search of another. More quality approaches and in a relatively short period we had another firm offer which was confirmed, and settled quickly and efficiently.
I can only commend Scott for his diligence and tenacity in his approach to finding a buyer for my business. To have two quality offers within that period was certainly quicker than I expected, and was a very professional effort.
On a personal note I have also gotten to know Scott well and would say that he is a likeable, honest and trustworthy person. I would have no hesitation in recommending him and his team if you are considering selling a business. In my business experience of some 30 years it’s refreshing and rare to find someone like Scott who knows what it takes to nurture business relationships and can progress tentative enquiries into hard and fast sales.
Good luck Scott, in all your future endeavours”
MICHAEL JENNINGS – WINSULATION
“We engaged Scott from One Business Brokers to sell our business and we were very happy with his diligence and persistence in seeking every avenue available to achieve our goal. The way he conducted himself throughout the sale process and after, has been very professional and at the same time, he has shown a genuine interest.
We would have no hesitation in recommending Scott to anyone wishing to sell their business.”
GRAEME & YVONNE CROW – FAULKNER REMOVALS
“Midway through the sale of our business, my husband passed away. This was a devastating and confusing time for me, especially when I hadn’t been involved with the sales process before. I was suddenly responsible for the sale of our business and also having to deal with the loss of my husband. I found so much comfort and support from Scott’s assistance, guidance and direction on both a professional and a personal level. I found Scott to be open, honest, and equally importantly, available when I needed him the most.
Scott’s service was great – but his integrity and trust was perhaps most important. Scott’s straight forward advice paved the way for the successful sale. I have no doubt I would have struggled to complete the sale without the knowledge and dedication of Scott. Now the sale has been completed, I am forever grateful to Scott for his dedication to the sales process. I have no hesitation in recommending Scott to any future clients.”
MICHELLE MARK – FOUNTAINHEAD ORGANIC HEALTH RETREAT & EDUCATION CENTRE
“I have owned and operated many businesses for over 40 years and after reaching the age of 65 I decided it was time to move on, slow down and sell my 15 year old business. Scott showed three interested parties through in six weeks and we had a signed contract within eight weeks, which went unconditional 30 days after.
If you have a business to sell contact Scott Devereux of One Business Brokers – a true professional. I’ve read many referrals over many years and really never believed one of them. Trust me this one is “TRUE”.
TONY WOODARD – HAMILTON AUSTRALIA
“Having not heard of Scott and One Business Brokers before, I was unsure of what to expect from him (and his services). When I first met with Scott, he promised quite a lot. In fact, he promised so much I was a little concerned he couldn’t deliver on them!
But let me tell you – how wrong was I! Scott delivered on every one of his promises. His follow through was excellent, and he did exactly what he said he would. It’s a breath of fresh air (and very rare) to find an advisor today who does exactly what they say they will do. This is even more relevant considering how difficult, stressful and complex multi-million dollar business transactions are.
Scott used his resourcefulness, hard work, diligence, and determination to find buyers, qualify and canvass those buyers and get my business sold in the shortest period of time at the highest price.
Scott had a zen-like calmness about him during very tense negotiations, which I have absolutely no doubt contributed to the overall success of the sales process – and ultimately resulted in my business being sold.
His, energy, drive and determination helped solved problems which needed solving. He took the initiative to make things happen and get my business sold very quickly.
Through engagement with Scott, I was able to achieve a great price for my business and, most importantly, protect the value of my business which I have worked so hard to build up over the past 18 years.
Even his after sales service blew me away. This was just yet another example of his ethics and values he holds so very close to his heart.
Scott is a truly exceptional broker.
The whole experience of selling my medium size business has been excellent. I would absolutely recommend Scott and One Business Brokers to any prospective sellers.
Scott, I urge you to encourage any business owners who are considering engaging your services to contact me directly, so I can detail to them my experiences in dealing with you when I sold my business. They won’t regret it!”
BRENDAN HOGAN – PRIMARY MUSIC INSTITUTE
“I highly recommend One Business Brokers. In my dealings with Scott, I was extremely impressed with his level of service, commitment and unquestionable dedication to the successful sale of my business. Scott has a wealth of knowledge and experience. The entire sales process was handled professionally and ethically with consistent and constant communication, ensuring I always knew what stage we were up to with the sale. Not only that, he successfully negotiated 100% of the listed sale price!
I would highly recommend you to any prospective client and will always be appreciative of your skills in achieving a great result. I would be delighted to speak with any prospective sellers who are considering the sale of their business to encourage them to engage your services. Thank you very much.”
BEN BUDGE – LIVIT HEALTH CLUBS
“Scott and his team at One Business Brokers were an absolute pleasure to do business with. He was a true professional and the whole experience was very easy for me. Without his help and guidance I truly believe that my business would be still for sale. In fact, he was extremely thorough and he had my business sold very quickly! With his expert skills in negotiation, his honest and ethical attitude towards business, it was a stress free sale.
Excellent and unquestionable commitment to service. I would definitely recommend Scott to anyone who is looking to sell and demands only the best.”
ANITA GREENSILL – D & P RECRUITMENT
“Being my first ever business sale, I was not quite sure what to expect. However Scott provided the advice I needed and unquestionable service throughout the entire sale process. From initial sign up to settlement (and after!) he was professional, constantly available when needed, and at all times ethical. When it came to business value, his background as a Chartered Accountant proved invaluable. He clearly understood my business, he matched the needs of the buyer and the seller and is an outstanding negotiator. He has a hard working demeanor and provided practical and honest advice. Selling your business is very stressful – but not with Scott. If you demand the best, engage his services. 100% positive.
I highly recommend Scott and One Business Brokers. I would not hesitate to recommend them to anyone who is considering the sale of their business. Professional, ethical, honest and diligent. Thank you very much.”
