"I had decided some time ago that at my stage in life, I should exit the business. I had modest expectations for the sale price, given that the business had provided a good income over the years. I was dreading the sale process so decided to hand the assignment to Daren.
I entered the sale process with Daren, emphasizing with him that confidentiality was paramount. It was a given with Daren, information was tightly controlled to those who needed to know.
The sale process is well drilled and professional, the marketing machine produced enquiries very quickly.
I was pleasantly surprised at the number and quality of the enquiries, very quickly there were serious buyers to talk to.
I was very happy that we were able, in a timely manner, to find the right buyer who was a very good fit for the business. Given the quality of the buyer Due Diligence went very smoothly and to time. The business went unconditional within a month.
Daren provided value that very much exceeded my expectations, both in establishing the sale price and finding the right buyer to fit the business."

"We highly recommend Daren Leng from ABC as a business broker. Daren assisted with the purchase of our washroom services company. He provided guidance and valuable insights with regards to buying a business as we had never done this before. When it came time to sell the business, 5 years later, our natural choice was to go back through Daren. By this stage the business had grown and morphed into a multi-faceted cleaning business with three different brands. Daren worked with numerous potential buyers to explain the business and present it in the best light. We had a successful sale and transition to the new owners thanks to Daren. We appreciated Darens' knowledge from the analysis of a businesses potential, valuation of a business, marketing strategies and his ability to articulate information to both parties in a clear way. We will definitely use his services again in the future."

"In July we decided to sell our business after 16 years of ownership. After meeting with three Business Brokers all from different companies, the decision to list with Daren Leng from ABC was an easy one. Daren was the broker we most connected with, he seemed straight talking, realistic, and relatable. To say that he did not disappoint would be an understatement! Achieving an offer for the full asking price 8 days after listing the business, through promoting the business to ABC’s database, Daren was amazing. He was supportive, encouraging and informative the entire way through what was a totally foreign process to us, and we couldn’t have been happier with the outcome or with our choice of brokers. He communicated clearly and regularly and made what was a stressful process so much better in every regard. We would highly recommend Daren to anyone looking to sell their business."
