She fully understood my needs as a seller and defended my interests all along the smooth due diligence process. Look no further if you're looking for a business broker. Jackie immediately found numerous high-potential buyers and advised continuously on the best strategy to achieve maximum success. She's the best and I can't thank her enough.”From Peter Vander Stichele who sold www.cooksinnovations.com
“Crowne Atlantic recently sold my 38 year old commercial cleaning company. It went under contract in 1.5 days with a full price cash offer plus a full price back up cash offer and 10 people in line to see it. Crown has this amazing data base with pre-qualified buyers with the price range and the type of business they are looking for. It went completely smooth and was a pleasant experience. Crowne is a family operation and Jackie and Lee were very personable, friendly, professional, informed and connected. They did a great job interacting with both the buyer and seller side and keeping it peaceful. They have gourmet chocolates and herbal teas and a nice environment to meet with buyers. I have recommended Crowne Atlantic to many of my colleagues and associates who are my age and will be selling their companies in the near future -- I would not use anyone else. I'm off to the beach and retired! Thanks Jackie and Lee!”From Mark Freche of National Building Services https://nbscleaning.com
