Client Feedback


    We have used IBA to sell two marine industrial companies. The business values and professional representation received from IBA were exceptional. IBA would be the only company we would call to sell a business

    Retired owners of Elmore Electric & Eltech


    Gregory Kovsky was referred to me by a business appraiser because he had past experience in my industry. Along with this, his great referrals, all around business knowledge, confidence and calm demeanor made me feel comfortable enough to choose him to broker my business. During the sales process, things can get a little stressful and Gregory always seemed to be available to answer my many questions to help put my mind at ease. When Gregory gave me advice, he always backed it up with reasons why he was advising me that way and I really appreciated that.

    We used IBA and Gregory Kovsky to both buy and sell businesses and have the most successful transactions ever! All the bases were covered and both parties were completely satisfied – none of the “after-market” hassles. We are very confident in IBA’s abilities and ethics.
