Spencer, Thank you for your great help in selling our business. Every day I wake up with a woo, woo we are retired! We had no idea all the details it takes for a successful transaction. I appreciate all the time you took during and after the sale to answer all my questions and concerns. Best wishes, Pat

Sean and Dustin handled a business sale transaction for me in 2019 and helped see the successful completion of the sale. In addition to the knowledge, support, and oversight throughout the escrow process, they have continued to be available for questions after the completion. Business sales are complex but their experience and calm demeanor helped guide through a successful completion. If you are looking to sell your business, speak with Sean and Dustin. You will be glad you did.

Thank you so much for all your help during the sale of my medical billing business. I was truly blessed to be introduced to you back in 2016, but wasn’t quite ready to sell at the time. Patiently you checked in with me every year until the timing was right for me and my family.
Through all of your patience, knowledge and kindness I experienced beyond exceptional service. I wish everyone could have the support from a broker that I experienced from you. I truly love my business and staff and wanted the best person possible to take it over, which you were able to find for me. Now I can start a new chapter of enjoying the rewards from all of my hard work over the years.
Words can’t fully describe what a professional and kind gentlemen you are. I am confident that you will be a blessing to many others. I was VERY lucky to have you in my life during a very stressful time.

Sean and Dustin at First Choice Business Brokers were recommended to my wife and I, five years ago, by a friend who used them to sell his business. We contacted them just to get a valuation of our business for future sale. We were very pleased at the time with their professionalism and responsiveness. When we got ready to retire earlier this year, we did our due diligence and interviewed another two brokers as well. What impressed us about Sean and Dustin years earlier, along with their concern for our confidentiality during the process, made First Choice, the easy choice.
Within two days of the listing, we had interest. Another two days and another buyer met with us. Within 23 days, we had a qualified cash offer, giving us almost everything we wanted. This was very surprising, as others in our Franchise had waited 12 to 18 months to sell their stores. All the way through the negotiations, and Escrow, Sean and Dustin kept us informed and coached us through the closing.
We highly recommend Sean and Dustin to anyone getting ready to sell their business.

“I had listed my business for sale with another broker for six months that was hard working and professional, but produced only unqualified buyers. I contacted Sean and Dustin at First Choice Business Brokers and what a difference! Sean and Dustin took the right approach that marketed my business correctly from the start. They found a qualified buyer within days from a resource of buyer contacts that they had on file. I received the price that I wanted and the process from start to finish was very quick and smooth. They were always available within a short period of time to answer my questions and coach me through completion. I would highly recommend Sean and Dustin to anyone looking to sell their business. Thanks again Sean and Dustin. I am sure you will have continuous success with your knowledge, confidence, and professionalism.”

Sean & Dustin,
I wanted to thank you both for helping Ann and I value, market and sell the business. Your knowledge of business valuation, was the first draw for us to work with you and First Choice Business Brokers. You could see the potential and desirability of our niche business and within days of marketing had several leads and began making appointments with potential buyers. Ann and I were impressed, and knew that we had made the right decision to list the business for sale, and in choosing you and FCBB to represent us. Once we began to meet with potential buyers, your communication and responsiveness were most appreciated, we never felt in the dark. During negotiations, you seemed to tailor each response to the personality and characteristics of the potential buyer, and always being straight and clear with your answers. We quickly had offers on the business and once we had accepted one, you and your team quickly opened escrow and closed the sale within 1 month! We still cannot believe how smoothly the sale went and how satisfied we were with the entire transaction! Thank you to both of you, and the FCBB team!

“It really feels like you found the perfect buyers. Feels like long lost friends spending time with them. We’re all so grateful to you and everything you’ve made happen. Your communication skills are amazing. You always stepped in and made sure we understood each other and you were never scared to step into the fire and redirect the conversation to a place where we all felt heard and understood. I could never have done this without your guidance or support and I know the Buyers feel the same way. You made all this possible and we talked tonight about how we’re all going after our big dream – them doing what’s best for their family finding a way to work less and afford a better future for their children and Larry and I are going after our free spirited traveling dream. We’ve all put everything on the line and we’re so excited for the next chapter. I’m just really happy and grateful. It’s happening exactly the way I hoped. Thank you so much for everything you’ve done (especially the stuff I had no idea you were doing) that made this deal go through and all of us moving closer to our life purpose. Truly, Thank YOU!!! You really made a huge difference here. I will forever be grateful for your caring and support through all of it.”

I worked with Sean and Dustin to sell my business. It was an excellent experience. They did not rush through the financial statements but helped me to accurately reflect my business and its earnings. They took their time to go through all facets of selling the business, always maintained confidentiality and diligently worked to find a financially qualified buyer. Within a couple months they produced a very well qualified buyer. From that point forward they helped negotiate the price, terms and really helped both parties overcome the small problems most deals encounter. Both of them were polite, professional and got the job done. I sincerely believe the price I sold the business for would have been much less without the proper preparation and advice Dustin and Sean guided me with. I would use them again in a heartbeat and would recommend them to anyone who is considering the potential sale of their business.
Mr. Rooter Franchise
Our experience with you has been nothing less than delightful and profitable!! Thank you for making the sale of our business such an easy and fun experience. Your energy, knowledge, and expertise caught our attention right away, and it carried through the entire transaction. We couldn’t be more pleased and look forward to working with you again!
Thank you so much!!!

It was Great dealing with both Dustin & Sean, They made the purchase transition very smooth and they stayed on top of things since day 1. I will definitley recommend them to other people.

Erez and I would like to thank you personally for successfully completing the sale of our business. You were very professional and friendly throughout the whole transaction and made us feel as comfortable as possible with selling the business that was a major part of our life for the last 5 years. Like we mentioned several times, it almost seemed “too easy” although I am sure in the background there was much more, and for that we would like to thank you both. We hope to do business with you again in the future.

George and I want to thank you both for the amazing job you did representing us in the sale of our family’s business. When my uncle called me into “yet another meeting” with a business broker, I expected the same sales pitch we had heard from the previous handful of brokers we had met with. What we got instead was a stress-free detailed plan of what you were going to do above and beyond simply listing our business and praying for calls. Before I knew it, you had TWO qualified buyers bidding against one another to acquire our stores! Your energy, professionalism, and knowledge made the entire process smooth and comfortable for everyone involved. Not to mention the great position you helped me land with the new owners! I will recommend you to everyone I know who is interested in selling their business. You guys are without a doubt the best business brokers in San Diego.

Sean & Dustin worked extremely hard in marketing and selling my business. They were professional throughout the entire process. I greatly appreciated the fact that they did not pressure me into accepting an offer that was lower than what I wanted. I always felt like they were working in my best interests. I would definitely work with them again.

Do not let the young faces fool you. Sean and Dustin are the best in the business. I had been trying to sell my postal store business over the past year and a half using three different business brokers with two different companies. Those other companies had garnered some interest, but could not consummate an adequate deal. I retained the services of Sean and Dustin and within one month, my store was sold for a fantastic price. They offer so much more than the other business brokers in San Diego that I had dealt with. From negotiating the new lease for the buyer to mitigating any concerns from all parties involved, Sean and Dustin exceeded all expectations. In business, we know that the ultimate compliment is referring well qualified professionals to our friends and business partners. I have already referred Sean and Dustin to two of my business friends. Do not waste anymore of your time with another business broker. If you want to sell your business, talk to Sean and Dustin and let them handle the rest. They will tell you upfront what you need to provide, an accurate ballpark of what they can sell your business for, and make sure that a deal will be consummated once an agreement is reached. I will only use them in the future for any business broker needs. I cannot thank Sean and Dustin enough.

When you receive a good service from a Company, you rarely feel obligated to write a thank you letter. On the other hand, when the Company goes the extra mile and provides a superior service, there is no way that you can dismiss this urge of sitting down, and giving them the proper credit they deserve. The outstanding and professional services that First Choice Business Brokers demonstrated in this business transaction is beyond what we call “good customer service.” Both the seller, and I, felt that this Business Broker had done everything possible, in a fair-and-square manner, to avoid any mistakes or delays to help completing the transaction. Without any doubt in my mind, they have surely set a higher standard of excellence that others will have to strive to compete against. Thank you and congratulations on a job well done!
Postal Annex Buyer
After trying to sell my store for several months, I listed my Postal Annex Store with Sean and Dustin at First Choice Business Brokers and they found several interested buyers right away… One of which resulted in an offer. They worked hard and coordinated many aspects of the sale to make sure that it went smoothly. Sean and Dustin were friendly, helpful and knowledgeable.
Postal Annex Seller
It was a pleasure working with you on the sale of the salon. I would recommend you to anyone who is buying or selling a business. Since I had never sold a business before I relied on you both to walk me through each step and you came through on that. I also had listed the business with another broker and was unable to find a buyer quickly and more importantly, a very well qualified buyer. Thank you for everything.
I wanted to send you a brief note to express my family’s gratitude for your efforts in closing the sale of Mandarin Garden. As you know, Mandarin Garden has been a part of my family for over 30 years and our decision to sell was really driven by my uncle’s health concerns. Given the distressed nature of the sale, the extremely limited term left on the lease and the declining restaurant operations, your ability to find an appropriate and willing buyer for our family business at an attractive valuation was truly amazing. Furthermore, you were able to find a buyer that was willing to keep my father employed as a head chef, which really surpassed all expectations we had for the sale. Without First Choice Business Brokers, and more specifically the admirable efforts of you and Dustin, this sale would not have been completed. Your ability to successfully close this sale is a testament to not only your vast network of qualified buyers, but also your business and negotiating expertise to get the sale closed. Thank you again for a job well done!

Julios and I want to express our sincere thanks to you and your team at First Choice Business Brokers for providing to us top quality expertise through the entire purchase process of Mandarin Garden Bar & Restaurant. Through your personal attention each step of the way — from the contract offer to the selling price negotiations, business research and closing — we had comfort in knowing that all the necessary steps were considered and all required actions were executed. We look forward to the next purchase. Job well done!

I am so excited about the extremely smooth sale of my business with you guys and want to express my heartfelt thanks! You two made the transaction stress free with your knowledge, communication and positive attitudes throughout the entire process!
First Choice Business Brokers will always be a recommendation of mine to whoever may be in need of a Business Broker! From the moment I made the phone call I knew I was in good hands with a reputable company when they came out to meet with me the very next day! From that day forward paperwork was signed, advertising started and my business was sold within a month!
Having dealt with other companies in the past with misinformed communication skills, I do have something to compare to and with this having been said, “First Choice Business Brokers” is a company I will boast about to all! Thanks again so much, “YOU GUYS ARE THE BEST!”
My business partner (Ranu Odedra) and I have been searching for a business investment in the San Diego area for the past 2 years and in January 2008 we came out of a very messy business deal that had left us feeling disappointed in our previous brokers’ ethics and disheartened about finding a good business.
Ranu and I met Sean and Dustin for the first time in February 2008 and initially we were a little apprehensive about their skills and experience as brokers because they seemed so young. However, within a short time of meeting them and discussing the businesses they had available on their books, we were very pleasantly surprised about how competent and knowledgeable they were about the businesses they were presenting to us.
Sean and Dustin have been very thorough and diligent in providing all the required documentation and/or information that we needed and within a couple of weeks we found ourselves in escrow and on our way to owning our first business in the US. We bought our business in May 2008 and are very happy with the outcome and the whole process that got us there, especially with Sean and Dustin’s efforts on our behalf.
Through our ongoing discussion, Sean and Dustin were aware that we were still interested in viewing and possibly purchasing other businesses and have continued to scout business opportunities for us, knowing the purchase criteria.
They recently brought another similar business to our attention which we liked and now we are in the process of purchasing it and hope to own it by October 9th 2008.
Sean and Dustin have been absolute gems to work with and are always willing to help in any way required to get any concerns or issues sorted out without fuss or bother. We only wish we’d met them earlier and saved ourselves all the stress and heartache of the previous 2 years.
We thoroughly recommend them and are hopeful to continue our collaborations with them for a long time to come.
We think both Sean and Dustin are very competent, courteous and hard-working and they have a very bright future ahead of them.
