Below are a few testimonials to whom Acquisitions Unlimited, Inc. has provided our services to over the years.
“We retained the services of Jan Fowler and her team at Acquisitions Unlimited to sell our business, a 30 year old wholesale equipment distributor located in Tampa, Fl.
“Jan and her team did an excellent job of packaging, marketing and selling our company in a very short time to the first buyers who saw it.
“Through the process she was diligent, responsive and highly experienced in her field. Even though the transaction was fairly complex, we never asked a question that she couldn’t answer. She has an excellent grasp of the contract negotiation, SBA financing and follow up after the sale.
“Jan guided us through the process, kept it highly confidential, and smoothly managed all the ups and downs.
“Bottom line, within only 6 months, from start to finish, she and her team had found the buyers and we closed the deal.
“All of us here would highly recommend Jan Fowler and Acquisitions Unlimited to market and sell a business.”
Allen Brokaw – Payless Equipment Corp.
“Jan Fowler of Acquisitions Unlimited, Inc, acted as our M&A Advisor on the sale and merger of our company, CCE Services, Inc., a telecom design engineering company, in Tampa, Florida. As a result of a significant marketing effort, Jan introduced us to our eventual buyer. The transaction took over a year to close from that initial meeting. Through it all, Jan was patient, competent and a hard worker who really knew the process. She had our best interests in mind at all times. She knows how to get a transaction closed and still keep everybody happy. It is my belief that if it were not for Jan’s constant involvement and support on every level this deal would not have occurred. I would highly recommend Jan Fowler and her team at Acquisitions Unlimited to anyone who is planning to sell a business.”
Scott Biron – CCE Services, Inc.
“When I met Jan Fowler in 1993, Acquisitions Unlimited was representing the seller of the business I was purchasing. She managed the sale/purchase in a very efficient manner and I was grateful to be working with a true professional who understands how to put a deal together. The sellers were difficult at times and I give Jan credit for keeping the transaction on track.
Nine years later when I decided to sell the business, I hired Jan and Acquisitions Unlimited to market the business and procure a sale. Once again, I was impressed by the professionalism of the service. Through the efforts of Jan and her company, a qualified cash buyer was found and the sale completed without a hitch. The buyers have become friends and I occasionally consult with them regarding the business.
I would not hesitate to work with Acquisitions Unlimited again should the opportunity arise.”
Bob Crawford – Mail Marketing, Inc., Clearwater, FL
“I have had the pleasure to work with Acquisitions Unlimited, Inc. on two separate occasions and have been very pleased with the professionalism and conscientiousness that Jan demonstrated.
Jan’s knowledge and ability to keep everyone on task even under the most stressful of circumstances were invaluable in assisting us to achieve our goal and obtain our desired sales price. I would recommend Jan and her staff anytime.”
H. Lee Stiles, Stiledge Investment Corp.
“Having had my business for twenty-eight years, it was a very serious consideration when I decided to retire.
I talked to several business brokers, but did not feel comfortable with their approach.
When I met Jan Fowler, I was very impressed. She was very honest and straight-forward. She understood my concerns in finding a new owner that not only would continue my success, but also be a good match for my long time employees.
She handled all things with the greatest of confidentiality and was very professional. Jan brought me three potential buyers and all of them made an offer.
I was able to select the best person to run the business. Throughout the entire transaction, she was a great help and made everything easy. I would recommend Jan to anyone that is selling his or her business. Thank you.”
Gail DeCroes – Sun Personnel Services West
“Our Corporation contracted Acquisitions Unlimited, Inc. for 6 months. During this time, they utilized several different types of media
platforms. Our business had exposure to both regional and national newspapers, as well as the World Wide Web. Acquisitions Unlimited also kept in close contact with both perspective buyers and our corporate officers. In our opinion, this business agency went above and beyond.”
Thomas Hodges – Palm Harbor Natural Foods
“I have worked on two separate transactions with Acquisitions Unlimited. On the first transaction I enlisted Jan and her team to locate a real estate business of a specific size in a particular geographical area. In a very short time frame she found just what we were looking for at a price we were willing to pay.
On the second transaction we were sellers. We were not in the market to sell at the time but Jan approached us with a qualified buyer and an offer that made sense for all parties involved.
Having a background as a CFO of public companies and having completed numerous mergers and acquisitions over the years, I found Jan and her team to be as competent and professional as many Wall Street investment banks in acting as an intermediary between buyer and seller. The Acquisitions Unlimited team is knowledgeable, persistent and I would recommend them to anyone who is in the market for a business opportunity or exploring exit strategies.”
Michael E. Hayes – Westshore Management, Inc.
“Thank you again for a job well done. Sure was frustrating at times, but you stuck to it and I appreciate that. I surely will recommend you to anyone that may need your services.”
Steve Sichel – ABC Home Medical, Tampa, FL.
“Jan is THE quintessential professional in all of her endeavors. She came to me many years ago, bringing with her the deal from heaven.
We have worked together on numerous projects through the years since that time and I have come to trust and rely on her as one of my most important advisors.
Jan is not just on time but is always one step ahead. Her creativity in structuring deals is amazing.
There are not enough superlatives to recommend Jan Fowler for any need you may have whether as buyer or seller.
She has become one of the folks who I owe any success I have experienced in the last two decades, to her experience, professionalism and guidance.”
“Within one month of taking the assignment, she found a buyer who was interested and who soon purchased the business at a price I found extremely agreeable. As with any business sale, this one involved considerable negotiating with a very astute buyer. She handled all the negotiating for me in a very professional and financially rewarding way – keeping all the parties happy, but not losing on price. I highly recommend the services of Jan Fowler and Acquisitions Unlimited, Inc.”
Ron Chabot – Past Owner of John’s Foods for Health
“You made the transaction run smoothly and made us feel you had our best interests at heart. We feel the negotiations went so smoothly because of your past experience in handling title insurance company sales.”
Carole Van Dusen – Independence Title Co., Inc.
“I would certainly recommend you and your company to someone with a business to sell. With the unique situation we presented you, you and your company came through with better than flying colors. Again, thank you for the first class job you did.”
David Epstein – State Janitor Supply
“You worked hard to find the right buyer to meet our objectives. Over a period of several months, you managed to market the company without our customers, employees and suppliers becoming aware of a potential sale. Thank you for all your hard work.”
Larry Edger – American Realty Title Agency of Florida
“Jan is an extraordinary woman with a zealous love for living and a ‘no holds bar’ perspective on success!
She is an expert resource for brokering your business; she is well informed and very intuitive.
When selling my business, Jan was there for me, even when I wasn’t, literally finding me in the middle of the Caribbean when opportunity knocked!
Jan is a net-worker at heart, connecting people to people, and the care she shares is genuine.
I feel fortunate to know her and you will too.”
Meg Hogan – GC Designs, Clearwater, FL
