The prospectus Maine Business Brokers prepares is very professional. Some of Wall Street's biggest firms do not always prepare such a fine document.
N. Price Paschall, Partner, National Acquisition Search Service, 120 Wall Street, New York, NY From a letter written
You at Maine Business Brokers do the best offering package of any broker I have seen. As a buyer prospect, it gave me all the information I needed to decide whether or not I was interested. It saved the seller and me a lot of time. The offering package answered most questions right up front." "Without Maine Business Brokers, I really don't think I would have purchased this marina. I had a major dsagreement with the seller on price. Without the skilled negotiation by the brokers, it just wouldn't have happened." "Even though you (Maine Business Brokers) represented the seller, I found out that you were reasonable and understood what I needed to do to make it happen. There were many things to iron out before this would go forward - the agreement, the financing terms and the transition to new ownership." "You help a lot. I don't think that most people would imagine how complicated it can be, or how much you do to make it happen.
Dan Craffey, Buyer, Moose Landing Marina, Naples, ME

I was pessimistic when I asked Maine Business Brokers to help sell Spinney Creek Oyster Company in Eliot, Maine. We had lost money. I was tired of managing the business. We had few tangible assets. But they saw the potential and assembled a prospectus. They were able to lay out the cash flow and portray it as a dynamic, futuristic business.
Ian Walker, Seller, Spinney Creek Oyster Company, Eliot, Maine (now Spinney Creek Shellfish)
Maine Business Brokers is the best business brokerage firm in the country, if I judge from the very informative articles you have on your website. I am upset we can't hire you to market our business in Montana.

When Maine Business Brokers sold Aquaboggan Waterpark in Saco, Maine in 1999, it did so utilizing a new frontier in pairing business partners - the emerging corporate matchmaking sites on the Internet. Where else but on the Internet would an offshoot of an Iowa egg producer end up buying a water slide amusement park in Maine?

Like a Phoenix, Coveside Conservation Products, a leading manufacturer of wooden bird and bat houses endorsed by the Audubon Naturalist Society, rose from the ashes literally in August 1995 after in burned to the ground.
