Dennis at American Business Acquisitions went above and beyond to steward my business through the arduous sales process. He put my business in front of targeted buyers and eventually found the perfect match. In addition, he helped me find an excellent lawyer to represent my business. It's hard to convey just how hard he worked to close the deal, but as an example, even at closing he went to our business warehouse with clients and stayed with them for hours into the night for due diligence. I highly recommend ABA.

I worked with Dennis at ABA on acquiring a business about 3 months ago. Dennis was very proactive in my effort to acquire my first business. He provided a lot of insights into owning and operating, what to be careful about, and strategies to take the business to the next level. A great person to work with.
