Tony's testimonial

"We first contacted Tony in February 2020 and immediately from the first phone call it was clear Tony would take ownership of the sale and manage the various challenging stages involved in selling a business. 

Within 2 weeks of having the business listed with ABC, Tony presented us with our first offer.  We were delighted with the price and the pre-screening process.  Unfortunately Covid-19 impacted our ability to close that sale but within 2 weeks of being at Level 1 we had two more offers in writing and sold and settled the business on the 1st July 2020.  Having come from a background in Corporate Sales, I can assure you selling a business is complex with multiple levels of objections to navigate. Tony did an amazing job for us tackling all the challenges we faced and keeping us informed through the sale process.  He is honest, a highly experienced person who is well known in the Waikato Business Sector and worth every cent of the commission we paid. 

Thanks Tony for allowing us to get on with our new life ventures, couldn’t have done it without you."

Gail Hellyer – Waikato Insulation

"I first met Tony when he introduced himself within my business asking the question would I be keen to sell as he had a number of clients on his books, wanting to get into the health and fitness sector.  At that time my club was approximately a year old and after some discussion and review from Tony, we determined that a little more time was required to continue to grow the membership base to a level that made the business a more attractive investment.

Tony kept in close contact over that next phase of growth and once we determined we were ready to go to market, Tony had two offers on the table within one week.  Within two months, the new owners had taken over and we could sit back and reflect knowing we had achieved something really cool, building a club from scratch, making a good profit and more importantly we had achieved what we had set out to do within that short two year timeframe.

I have no hesitation in recommending Tony to anyone who is considering selling their business, he was friendly, passionate, professional and made the process so easy.  18 months later Tony still checks in to see how we are going with our club and our plans for the future, this is a great sign of his character which we appreciate and welcome it."

Tony Tracey, Flex Fitness – Hamilton CBD

"Tony Begbie of ABC was recommended to us when we decided to sell our family business of 31 years.

Tony gave us exceptional service from our first contact which was open, caring and professional, to signing on the dotted line.  Trust  and honesty is the most important aspect of any sale especially with regards to selling or buying a business, and feeling comfortable with your agent.

We totally recommend Tony Begbie, his knowledge across so many business categories and ABC‘s commitment to Vendor and Purchasers was exceptional."

Peter & Stella Gordon – Te Rangiita Store & Caltex

"Tony and the whole team at ABC made buying our first business a breeze. Tony was happy to chat through all of our questions, and provided great advice on what due diligence was important to undertake. We’ve been incredibly happy with our acquisition and look forward to working with both Tony & ABC again in the future."

Alex Mark – Sportsfuel

"I was referred to Tony from a prior satisfied client, and yes I could see why they felt comfortable recommending him. From my initial phone call to Tony right through to after I was paid for my business, I was treated with professionalism, courtesy and felt at ease that Tony cared.

Tony demonstrated that he cares for the Seller, the buyer and the sustainability of the business that is being sold. I have no regrets listing with Tony and never once did I have any concerns about the fee paid for the successful sale of my business.

Tony Begbie is the first and last man you should speak to when listing or purchasing a business, this Man knows his craft and knows it exceptionally well. I have recommended Tony to a number of people and will continue to do so.

It’s as simple as ABC when you buy and sell with Tony Begbie."
