“We had been thinking about selling our 30+ year established business for some time, but weren’t sure about how to go about it. We chose to have Centurion 7 list it for sale and oversee the marketing.
We are very pleased with our decision…the business got a “full price” offer within the first month! Rhett handled the entire process, setting up meetings, negotiating the financing, and advising all the parties to the deal. We closed the sale and can honestly say we were satisfied with the professionalism and guidance of Rhett and his company.”
John and Janette Farewell, Superior Equipment Repair, Inc.
“Rhett and Centurion 7: thank you for all your professionalism and patience in getting our deal done. It has been a very good experience working with you and I’m sure we will be in contact for future investments.”
Sean Pourvakil, Integrated Design and Fabrication
“I’ve run a successful construction company for a couple decades. It was getting time to wind things down when Rhett convinced me I had a viable business to sell. I signed up with his company and in a few weeks there was a good offer and we opened escrow.
There were some difficulties with the buyer at the outset, but Rhett made sure we did what was necessary to keep it legal and safe for all the parties involved. We were able to resolve the issues, successfully.
He is a true professional and I would readily recommend his company to anyone interested in selling a business.”
Frank Welch, CEO, TF Welch Enterprises, Inc.
“To whom it may concern:
My wife and I recently purchased a business under the brokerage of Rhett Kniep with Centurion 7 Business Advisors.
This was a difficult transaction as our purchase required us to perform a 401k Rollover for Business Startup (ROBS) transaction as well as gain additional funding from a lender. The first lender after several months would not agree to the transaction and declined our loan. Rhett was able to convince the small business owner to continue to work with us while we secured other funding.
An adjoining piece of property also had to be closed on 2 months prior to the predicted close date for the business to accommodate another owners 1031 transaction needs. Rhett played a key role in working with us and the property owner for completion of this transaction.
When near complete a potential environmental issues arose with the planned business purchase. Again the owner could have pulled the deal as other cash offers were available. Rhett was able to convince the owner to stay in the deal and complete with my wife and I.
I would recommend Rhett for the purchase of or sale of a business in the future.”
