CLIENT TESTIMONIALS 


"I decided to sell my restaurant business and contacted Jim Goodwin of GMO who promptly arranged a meeting to discuss my business needs and the current market conditions.

From the very first instance, I was confident in Jim’s experience and had no hesitation in planning the preparation of my business for sale. Most important to me was professionalism and honesty in achieving an outcome and Jim never failed to deliver this along with the GMO team. Regular communications and updates were quickly arranged via marketing and GMO’s business network.

Jim successfully sourced and negotiated an interested buyer to achieve the best financial result for us, and continued to support the process as an integral conduit between buyer & seller.

Overall, I could not have been more pleased with the services delivered by Jim Goodwin and the GMO team. My business was sold and settled within the expected time frame.

I have no hesitation in recommending GMO due to the professionalism, integrity and hard work of Jim Goodwin and his team.  Thank you, and every success for the future." 

 Stephen Scaffidi  - Owner, Sentinel Bar and Grill


"I would hesitate to call Jim Goodwin a "broker". Whilst I know that Jim's business model lies in buyers and selling businesses, my experience of him was more that of a consultant, or business advisor.  Over the course of many months, Jim and I discussed our requirements, looked in depth at various businesses, until a suitable one emerged. Once my wife and I had decided to move forward with that business, Jim shepherded the process calmly, dispassionately and smoothly. The seller was happy, we the buyers were happy, and the business has remained stable to slightly up in the immediate aftermath of the sale.  I would recommend GMO, and Jim in particular, extremely highly."

Ian Thubron - Buyer: AsiaStrategies


“Very professional and competent level of service. All Jim’s experience gained over many years being used to get the transaction happening and then kept it moving to settlement.”

Mark Gatty - Seller: Jackson Paving


“We give our highest recommendation for the efforts of Jim Goodwin and Tony Batista in the sale of our business. Jim and Tony handled the process with the upmost professionalism and integrity. We have happily recommended GMO to other people who may be considering their business.”

Kamran Nowduschani & Louise Gordon, Sellers and Founders of Fiori Coffee


“We have recently purchased a business through Jim Goodwin at GMO.  Jim was at all times professional and meticulous in his attention to detail and his friendly, patient and approachable manner helped make the experience a relaxed one. We would definitely recommend Jim’s services.”

"Recently we sold our business through Vijay Bhuva at GMO. Vijay visited our office many times in order to immerse himself into our business.

Each and every time we found Vijay to be polite and exceptionally professional as he developed an in-depth understanding of how our business actually worked.

This is an important factor when selling a business as Vijay was able to assess potential clients particularly to see if they price matched and answered their questions well before bringing them to us.

Vijay also set up a few meetings as we were lucky that there were a number of buyers interested and we were able to ascertain which would be the most suitable.

We also found that Vijay had a world of experience and with people and other businesses and guided us on a number of occasions".
