I would certainly recommend VR and would use them again if I had the need. They kept their promises, worked hard and sold my business to a buyer from across the country. Choosing VR was one of the best decisions I ever made with my business.
Mohan and Troy at VR were great to work with. The entire process was great. They really know their business.
Troy - thank you for all your hard work with eSupplyStore. I know we found the right buyer at the right price. I don't see how the process could have gone any smoother.
VR did an excellent job of selling my franchise. This is actually the second time that I have used their services and I have been impressed both times.
I owned the Health Gazette for over 30 years and it was important for me to find the right buyer. VR gave us a fair market value for the business and sold it for exactly that amount. I could not have been more pleased.
VR really took the time to understand my needs. I think their expertise was a big reason the transaction happened.
VR stood out from the competition. They were the best fit when it came to selling my business.
I was extremely impressed with VR. They approached the sale of my business with a very professional system. I knew my business wasn't large, but I still got a high level of service. I would certainly recommend VR to anyone thinking about selling their business.
I hired VR to sell me construction company. They worked hard through the whole process and found the right buyer. They did a great job and I would use them again.
I wanted to send a note and thank you for all your hard work. This has been a great experience and I really enjoyed working with VR.

I tried other brokers in town and they just put some ad in the newspapaer and it didn't result in much.
VR did a very good job for us. They set the price for my business, found the buyer, and worked through all the details.
Commercial Business Systems
I first used another brokerage company to try and sell my business, but it did not work. VR was totally different, very professional and they sold my business for almost full asking price.
VR exceeded my expectations in selling my online business. I got the full asking price of the business. We got several offers within the first couple of weeks. The entire process took less than 6 weeks from start to finish.
