Why choose Extrapreneur? Here is what a few of my clients have said…

When we contacted Therese to sell our business, we were very apprehensive about the value and capability of the sell. She was professional right from the start. She took the time to understand our business, did a very detailed analysis of the cash flow, factory costs, customer base and studied customer feedback for our product's reputation. After the analysis, she gave us pricing options to go over and made a recommendation based on our input and her experience.

Our business sold quickly for the full asking price. Again, she was very experienced at making sure all details were in order for a very smooth closing, keeping all parties informed and up to date with the requirements for the closing. The closing was very smooth, all parties were pleased with both the sale and the purchase.
