“If you had not stepped in to guide me, I must admit that I probably would not have closed the sale. Of the many attributes you offer, I am impressed with your knowledge of what it takes to be a good intermediary. Your skills mean so much to the person you are working with because you are direct, and you have the passion it takes to be successful in this business. I recommend you to anyone, client or colleague, anyone who works with you is very fortunate.”

“You had something to do with the success of Imagine Home Interiors. You connected us with Bob. He connected us with Cindy and Rotary international in Durban South Africa, and I visited them while we are there.
That led to our picking botanicals in one of their gardens, which led to our botanical picking project in Ghana, which is one of my next trips.
So thank you for the connection, and Bob has become a very, very good friend over the years. I played tennis with him twice a week when he was in Seattle and now he stays at my place when he comes to Seattle. Thought you’d like to know that. Thanks John, you’re a good guy. You like to make connections and make this world a better place.”

“To reiterate, the benefit of having someone like you to bounce ideas and issues off has been invaluable to us. Your insight and business acumen has allowed us to see through the clutter invariably present in a business sale and ask the truly pertinent questions. I believe Deborah and I made better decisions as a result of your involvement in the process. Thank you and regards,My interests were your interests, my concerns were your concerns, and in the end the team approach contributed to closing what I regard as a fair and equitable deal. The ability to have you available to use as a sounding board to toss things around with when things got tense and emotional in the negotiation process proved to be an added benefit for me.
Should a person be committed to purchasing a business, I would without hesitation recommend that they work with you.”

I recommend John without reservation to others who want improved results.”
