“As a first time buyer, Provest was very helpful.  The initial company I was considering got sold before I was ready to act.  About two week later Provest called me with a new opportunity and we progressed through the process.  They responded quickly to questions and in some cases provided me with information before I even asked.

 The deal is closed and I can honestly say that I was very pleased and if I ever consider another acquisition, I will call Provest.”

“I cannot thank the professionals at Provest enough for the time and effort they took with me and my employees.  Bob and Aaron reviewed and analyzed my company in great detail to ensure that before marketing my business that they could clearly represent my company.  The time they took preparing my business for sale made the whole process work smoothly, with the end result of a quick sale.”

Provest Properties Inc. helped to sell our business within 4 months.

We had discussed selling our business for about three years.  We looked at the usual prospects of family members, existing employees and competitors, but were unsuccessful in finding potential buyers.

We had been contacted by a number of business brokers, but did not feel comfortable with any of them until we met Aaron Delidow and Robert Hochwalt from Provest.  They were very professional and knowledgeable on selling and buying all types of businesses.  They helped us evaluate our business and explained the selling process in simple but logical terms.  They generated a comprehensive Confidential Preliminary Evaluation and listed our business at no initial cost.

We signed the listing agreement at the end of January, 2012.  They brought three groups of prospects to look at our business in February, and we received an acceptable Letter of Intent to purchase in early March.  With their expert help, the closing of the sale was in the middle of May.

The entire process was quick, painless and most importantly profitable.  We highly recommend Provest Properties Inc. for anyone looking at selling or buying a business.

I began working with Aaron Delidow and Bob Hochwalt in the spring of 2008 and have continued our relationship to this day. Both my business partners and I were working for a fortune 100 company and wanted to go out on our own, which we did with the help these two gentlemen. Their expertise in deal structuring, financing, and “partnership” relations are only a few areas that aided us on the purchase of our current business.

After the purchase of our business Bob and Aaron have continued to consult with us on matters related to long range planning to include our exit strategy. The result of their guidance and our dedication to success has been not only personally rewarding, but from an exit strategy perspective, one that will someday be very financially rewarding. Their diverse knowledge base, as well as their long-term dedication to this business has been a significant factor in our success.

I cannot speak more highly regarding Bob Hochwalt, Aaron Delidow and their firm, Provest. I worked with Bob and Aaron to purchase a company during a very challenging time back in 2008. I am certain, that without their help and perseverance, this transaction would not have gone through

Their firm provides incredible support, consultation and excellent guidance through the entire acquisition process and beyond!
