"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."

"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."
