In the beginning of 2019, my business coach introduced me to Jay Offerdahl at Viking. We did a call and he suggested for me to get my business evaluated to see how it was performing. He offered to do one for free. He was easy to work with and provided tons of great information free. He didn’t try to push his services on me or trying to sell me anything. Later in the year I decided that I wanted to sell my business to be able to spend more time with my kids while they were still young. I instantly thought of Jay because was a great trusted advisor with my free valuation. I called Jay and he referred me to Greg White. I sure am glad he did.
Greg was awesome to work with. He is the most honest and dependable person I have ever met. A few times I was waffling on what I wanted to do. Greg advised me to wait if I wasn’t 100% sure. Most others in that position would have encouraged me to sell, but Greg always put my best interest above his own. Greg took care of all the details. He sent me exactly what I needed to do and coached me through doing it. We listed the business in January 2020. I received multiple full price offers in the first week.
The most important thing to me during this process was to find the right type of buyer. I wanted someone who would be compatible with the team and would keep the family focused culture. Greg took this very seriously. He didn’t waste my time with anyone that wasn’t a good fit. He talked to a hundred people, but I only had to talk to 5. Once we accepted an offer the real work began. I had no idea how many steps there were in selling a business. Greg managed the transfer process and kept us on track with weekly calls and checklist. He personally handled many calls and emails with vendors to help keep me focused on running my business and not having to spend all of my time on selling the business.
Greg’s and Vikings’ professional network was key to getting my deal done. They have great relations ships with attorneys, bankers, and all needed vendors. My deal would have falling apart a few times if it wasn’t for Greg and his network.
I highly suggest anyone interested in selling their business reach out to Greg and Jay. They will tell you honestly where you stand and help you get the full asking price and best buyer for your business. When I sell my next business, I will be calling Greg again.
