"After 23 years of owning and operating a large service company I was burned out and ready to move on. Luckily, I met Edward Valaitis. A few months after we put it on the market a buyer expressed interest

"After 23 years of owning and operating a service company I was burned out and ready to move on. Luckily, I met Edward Valaitis. A few months after I put it for sale with Ed a buyer expressed interest in my company. The buyer was very demanding, had many questions, and required a lot of information from me. Not only did Ed work endless hours as a liaison between the buyer and me, he helped me put the buyer’s requests in perspective and work through his demands. Ed always had a positive outlook and kept things moving forward. He was supportive and thoroughly understands that selling a business that you built from the ground up is an emotional experience".
