“Rhett sent me a letter/flier introducing himself and his business. I had already thought about selling my company at some point but after reading his letter it got me thinking and not long after I reached out to him. We scheduled a meeting and he described the process of selling a business and the costs associated with it. I was very comfortable with him and after contacting a couple other business brokers I decided Rhett and Centurion 7 was the right fit. He was very professional and extremely knowledgeable throughout the entire process. He told me that roofing companies usually sell fairly quickly and he was right. He valued my company and got the price that he promised me. It was no time before I had 2 interested Buyers and the company was sold as quickly as I could have expected. The entire process was straight forward and less work, on my end, than I had imagined. Thank you Rhett for everything. I will refer you to every friend/acquaintance I come across that is interested in selling their business.” Tony Faryniarz, Nor Cal Roofing, Inc.

“I wasn’t aware of what selling a middle-market business entails or how much work it actually takes. We were referred to Rhett by a very prominent businessman in our area and couldn’t have been happier. Rhett’s knowledge helped us through the entire process, from valuing our business, structuring the deal, tax consequences, conference calls, negotiation between buyer and seller, navigating the escrow… Rhett was there to assist all the way to closing and beyond. Thanks for all your hard work, Rhett!” Jerod Meents, MarkSYS, LLC

I signed up with his company and in a few weeks there was a good offer and we opened escrow.

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, TF Welch Enterprises, Inc.

“Dear Rhett and Centurion 7, Selling our company was a massive undertaking, and more complicated than I would have expected. Having you and your team on board throughout the entire process was crucial to our success.

“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. When near complete, environmental issues arose with the planned business purchase. Again, the owner could have pulled the deal as other cash offers were available but Rhett was able to convince the owner to stay in the deal. I would recommend Rhett for the purchase of or sale of a business in the future.” Ken Rasmussen, Grover Beach Tool Rental
“Hey Rhett, Just wanted to say thanks for all the help in acquiring Rocklin Glass and Mirror. It was a time constrained process that we never could have done in the time frame we needed without your help. You answered all of our calls and texts no matter the time or day. Having never been through this process before we were a bit overwhelmed at times. But you kept it all going smooth from the beginning to the final signing. Thank you again for all the help.” Barry & Sharon Grafe, Rocklin Glass and Mirror, Inc.
“Rhett, as you said ,all sales are different. Some are easy and some are not. For me not selling a business before I had nothing to go by but I think you earned your keep on this one. Good job!” Jerry Fratcher, Fratcher Auto Body, Inc.
