What Our Clients Say…
I would like to start off by saying “thank you” for all of your help and guidance with the sale of my 3 custom accessory outlets. I feel without your support and direction, I could never have received the selling price that you brought to the table. Every step in the sales procedure was overseen by you personally, allowing me to concentrate on running the 3 businesses, which were still in full operation.
From the very first step in the sale process, evaluating what price we should ask for the sale of the 3 businesses, you carefully and accurately helped make those decisions not only easy, but more importantly, beneficial to me, the seller. You understood all of the intricate details of selling a business and used that knowledge to procure a timely sale of the business, while ensuring the seller receives the highest sale price obtainable, with all points being considered. The entire experience from beginning to sale, not only happened quicker than anticipated, it brought more than expected and caused very little intrusion, with regards to the ongoing operation of the 3 businesses.
I would strongly suggest to every business owner interested in selling their business to acquire your help in that endeavor. I know that you will make that entire experience not only much easier, but much more rewarding at the closings’ sale table. Your help in this field is invaluable.

After meeting with you the first time, I could see your level of commitment would be different. After months of hard work and dedication on your part, you brought me not one but TWO acceptable offers! Your unbiased advice during the selection process was also commendable. You made sure the client and I felt comfortable moving forward without pressure to sign the deal. The result was total success!
In short, you made a very delicate and often invasive process, a very tolerable challenge. Your tenacious, organized and professional style is exactly what we needed to sell these product lines at a more than fair profit. I think you have definitely found your calling. I would highly recommend anyone who is thinking of buying or selling a business to use Capital Business Solutions above all others. Thanks again for a job well done!

We were impressed with your explanation on how you determined the value of our Cafe and your marketing strategy in listing the Cafe for sale. It was important that we sell the Cafe for its value and not just for the equipment, as so many past business brokers had recommended. Our Cafe had value in not only its equipment, but also in its 10-year reputation in the Metairie community.
We were very impressed to learn within one week of signing the listing agreement, that you had found a buyer. This was not just any buyer that many past business brokers had brought to us with offers that were not worth entertaining, but instead, a buyer who offered the value of the Cafe and they were good people who we were excited to have become tenants of the building.
Our experience with your organization has changed our negative perception about business brokers. We would be more than happy to recommend your services to any of our fellow colleagues and any person who is looking to sell their business for its value.

Here's my interpretation on how this business was sold in spite of a difficult situation: Michelle Seiler is a true professional who controls every detail of the process. She is present at all prospective buyers/owner meetings. She does a great job of evaluating the price of a business, qualifying buyers and having them sign the confidentiality agreement. You will never meet a non-qualified buyer. Her office staff does a good job administratively, as Michelle is always working with her clients. They do a good job packaging and presenting the business so that it is user friendly for clients.
Michelle will do whatever it takes to work for you. She has been to my house four times, and even to my hospital bed! She works when the job demands it without thought to her personal time. You will come first! During the many times I was in the hospital, she kept me positive. She always kept promoting my business with such a positive attitude.
I have spent over twenty years as a corporate executive, training leaders to be all they can be. Michelle is the best example of excellence I have seen in action.

In March of 2010, we met with you and immediately knew you were the person we could work with and would sell our practice. We appreciated your honesty, professionalism, knowledge of the industry and desire to help us be successful. We felt you were truly focused on our goals at the same time trying to find a buyer that would meet their needs as well as ours. In a little less than eight weeks, you sold our business at a rate that was even higher than the listed amount. The process was handled with expertise and ease and covered all the bases such as: valuing the business, completing the listing agreement details, communicating the process, launching to numerous websites, qualifying/finding the right buyer, securing the financial deposits, arranging the attorneys/legal transactions to finally closing the sale. In addition to your efforts going above and beyond what was expected, your staff was also extremely professional, courteous and efficient.
In closing, I wanted to thank you for all your hard work and effort. I know at times I was difficult to deal with due to my “seller’s remorse” as you would say; however, your encouragement really helped me adjust to the transition. I also appreciate your efforts to continue checking on me and the buyer even though the business has been sold since May 20, 2010. I would recommend you and your staff at Capital Business Solutions to anyone in the future. My only suggestion to them would be – “Make sure you are ready to sell because it will happen with you.”

I am sending this letter to thank you again for the superb job you and your staff did for me in the recent sale of my business.
At the age of 63, I decided to retire after 24 very lucrative years in the publishing industry. During that time, I published a wedding magazine four times a year, in addition to two large bridal shows yearly. You negotiated a very satisfactory price and kept the sale in the forefront of your attention. The result of this effort was a multitude of meetings with perspective buyers in a relatively short period of time and a consequential sale in a very reasonable time frame. Your diligence and attentive efforts have resulted in my retirement proceeding as planned. The efforts of you and your staff have made it possible for me to enjoy a very comfortable retirement.
If I had to do it over again, you would be my only choice to handle the promotion, price negotiation and sale of my business. Thanks again for a fantastic job!
