"I had another mergers & acquisitions broker do a valuation of my company. His evaluation was not what I had hoped for so I decided not to sell. I mentioned this to a friend who told me I should contact Gregory Kovsky of IBA. I contacted Mr. Kovsky and his valuation came in $1,000,000 higher. That was enough to convince me to go to market. We went to market and within a few months we had multiple full price offers and sold the business for full price. Gregory Kovsky did an incredible job. While I had bought a number of businesses in the past, this was the first business I sold. Gregory did a great job of holding my hand, keeping me calm, and giving me sage advice throughout the sale process. I have unconditionally recommended Gregory to friends and recommend him to anyone interested in selling their business"

"On behalf of my partners and myself, I wanted to take the time to thank you for a job well done. We are very pleased with the professional representation you provided us throughout the sale process. The fact that the other mergers & acquisitions firms we contacted required a large deposit and what appeared to be an open checkbook before they would assist in selling our company was very disconcerting to us.
Your unique approach of no money down, only selling a small number of businesses a year, and only the ones that you felt you could assist with was exactly what we needed to set our minds at ease. We are very pleased with your efforts.
Your knowledge was quite useful when questions arose and was always very timely. The manner in how you presented options and negotiated on our behalf was professional and I never felt we had made the wrong choice selecting you and IBA."
