"Your access to qualified buyers and your management of the sales process was excellent."

I want to thank you for your wonderful representation for the sale of my company, Odyssey Development & Resorts.

I know conclusively that this transaction would not have been consummated without your guidance and tutelage along the way.  As expected, there were many twists and turns along the way and your help in navigating those times was critical.  Very important to me, was the fact that you have developed a valuation method for resort properties that makes sense to both buyers and sellers.  Valuations of resort properties has long been very difficult given the uniqueness of resort properties and their ownership structures.  Your legal background was also useful in interpreting the many legal documents involved in the transaction.

Your access to qualified buyers and your management of the sales process was excellent in my opinion.  From the initial listing to transaction close, we were able to accomplish this in approximately 10 months.  This is remarkable given that I had seven different operating entities, each unique and with their varied ownership structures and individual financial statements.

I am most happy to talk with anybody that would like to inquire further about my experience with you and your team.

"I cannot say enough good things about SVN | Northco."

We entered into an agreement with SVN | Northco to list our management company, the Blue Heron Restaurant and thirty-two condominium units we owned at the Wild Eagle Lodge. SVN put together a wonderful Investment Memorandum that they sent to individuals and companies throughout the United States. They worked very hard, were quite imaginative, helped with business plans and even banking relationships. They did a spectacular job that ended up with a successful sale that benefited both buyer and seller. I cannot say enough good things about SVN | Northco, Frank Jermusek and his very professional and hard-working staff. I would be very happy to be associated with them again in the future.
