CBI works for the seller with the primary goal of facilitating a successful transaction. A successful transaction is doing whatever we need to do to create a win-win scenario for both the buyer and the seller. What do our buyer customers say about us?
“I would highly recommend CBI to any individual or company looking to sell or acquire a business in New England. CBI worked as the sell-side broker for a company I acquired in 2002 and I found that they played a key role in navigating what was a complicated transaction through a series of difficult negotiations, on again off again discussion, and a Seller with ever changing goals. CBI maintained a high level of professionalism throughout the process, and was tireless in their efforts to put together a transaction that was mutually acceptable to both parties. In the end, CBI’s ability to effectively communicate the Seller’s goals and needs to me, as well as my (the Buyer’s) constraints to the Seller, was the key to the transaction’s ultimate consummation.”

“We really appreciated CBI’s cool and calm manner with which they handled an unexpected, difficult situation in the negotiation phase. CBI’s highly professional and courteous approach put our minds at ease, and we were able to proceed with the closing on time and as scheduled. During our search, we had a chance to look at a myriad of listings. CBI’s listings consistently proved to be solid, well-researched, and serious buying opportunities for serious buyers.”

“I would like to express my appreciation for CBI’s assistance in helping me to purchase three quick lube businesses during the past year and a half. Over the last several years, I have dealt with numerous business brokers throughout New England, but none that I felt were able to seize the opportunities brought forth to them. Without CBI’s persistence, knowledge and creativity, it is unlikely that any of these acquisitions would have been possible. Thank you again for the assistance.”
Buyer, The Lube King
“It was pleasant and productive experience working with the brokers at CBI during the search process and subsequent acquisition of my company. CBI’s team was most attentive to all of my needs for obtaining the necessary information I needed to determine my level of interest in the companies I reviewed. Their pleasant, professional demeanor coupled with a no-nonsense approach to getting the necessary facts and details during due diligence made CBI an invaluable partner during the acquisition phase. Without reservation, I recommend CBI as the professionals you can be confident being affiliated with, whether you want to sell your company, or have prospects of buying your own business.”
Buyer, Look’s Gourmet Food Company, Inc.
“We have engaged other brokers in the area and in the future CBI will always be our first choice whether we are buying or selling. CBI works with the highest degree of integrity and has real respect for both parties’ interests all through the negotiating process. They are experienced, professional, and connected to so many people that the job gets done, and done well.”
“Last year I began to think about possible business opportunities for that point in my life when I retire from a long career at Deutsche Bank and make the move to New England on a permanent basis. Knowing that this would not become a reality for several years, you still took the time to share your ideas and present actual opportunities. It was clear that your knowledge and experience spanned a number of businesses and industries and I was surprised when you uncovered an immediate opportunity- which was just what I was looking for.
You helped me work through the numbers and do the necessary due diligence. It was a difficult process, but your negotiating skills, professional approach and tremendous intermediary network (bankers, lawyers, and accountants) enabled me to seize this opportunity and complete the acquisition.
Without your wise advice and assistance, along with that of the team you assembled, this deal would likely not have occurred. Your experience prevailed and as a result I am now a happy owner. Thanks again for a job well done.

“I felt comfortable with the way CBI explored my interests and my resources. At the end of the meeting, CBI felt they had the right company for me. When I was shown the bulletin, one of CBI’s exclusive marketing assignments, it took me 30 seconds to know it was the right business for me.”
