Testimonials

“We very much enjoyed working with Brent Bungard from Arthur Berry & Company.   Brent was focused, informed and professional in working with us to sell our business and property.   Brent was concerned with helping us find the right fit and maximize the value of our sale.   He was patient and knowledgeable, always available and ready to answer any concerns.   We would definitely go to Brent again if we had any property to sell in the future.”
– John Turner, Turner’s Sportfair and Turner’s Lounge


“We just completed the sale of our business for about $850,000.   We had asked that the sale be handled discreetly. Brent Bungard worked with us as we had requested, visited our business physically, helped us along in the process and kept us informed every step of the way from start to finish.   The journey was good, the destination was satisfying.   I had the business for sale with another broker for about one year before Brent got involved and during that year we felt that the broker did not help us in any of the ways that Brent did.   Brent went hunting for prospective buyers, advertised in areas I’d never heard of, promoted our business in every way possible and kept promoting our business with anyone who showed interest in it.   I know that this isn’t true, but Brent made us feel like we were his only client as he worked the sale and as he kept us abreast of his progress continuously.   I would recommend Brent to anyone wanting to sell their business.”
– Joe and Sherry Chapman, Konkolville Motel

“Dear Brent (Bungard): I wish to express my appreciation for your success in selling the liquor license when we closed our hotel. You obtained a good buyer who proved to be well qualified to have the license. You handled our special needs very professionally.”

“We would recommend Arthur Berry & Company, and especially Bill Spofford. Bill put a lot into this project over an extended period of time and was most helpful in suggestions to improve our chances of selling.   He was very helpful in explaining how the process worked, what we needed to do at each step and what everything meant.   We never worried that confidential information wouldn’t be handled properly.   He always put us first in times that it would have been in his best interest to do something differently.   Bill was available at a moment’s notice, whenever there was a conflict or question of any type, and very good at helping to resolve anything that came up.”
– Ron Grover and Kevin Hicken, Sellers of Shortstop Market


“To Whom It May Concern: I would recommend Ron Winkler of Arthur Berry & Company to be your selling agent.   He is a very personable and professional man.   He conducted the sale of my Commercial building in a professional manner and answered any questions I had.   He traveled from Boise, Idaho to Burns, Oregon (200 miles) when I was to meet with the buyers.   I appreciated that extra time that he put in.   I would not hesitate to have him as my agent again. “
– Patricia B. Wagner, Burns, Oregon


“Dear Dave [Norris]: I wanted to write you and let you know how impressed we were with the professional way you helped us sell our business.   It was always a pleasure working with you and your attention to the details helped us to feel completely comfortable with the whole process.   We were particularly surprised at how many people you brought over to see the business.   You gave the business excellent exposure and we felt that your fee was well worth the work that you did.   I would highly recommend Arthur Berry & Company if you are either selling or buying a business.   Without them, I’m sure we would not have got such a good price and found a suitable buyer to take over a cherished business that we ran for 20 years.   Thank you and let me know if you would like me to talk with any of your prospective business sellers. “
– Jim and Cindy Sparling, Cartridge Connection


“This [valuation report] looks great.   I can see arguments both for higher and lower valuations.  Your conclusion seems quite reasonable.   A few more years of solid performance and it appears we will reach a very different conclusion about our worth.   Your report is not only very informative and helpful, but also a shot in the arm.   Thanks again for your thorough, professional work and rapid response.   I look forward to our paths crossing again.”
– Jon Moses, Principal & CEO, MD Review


“I wanted to take a moment to thank your company and specifically Lenny Nelson for his diligent efforts in assisting me during my recent quest to purchase a homeowners association management company.   I found Lenny to be persistent in his pursuit of a company that would fit my needs, but at the same time always careful to put my interests as his client first.   His honesty and “tell it like it is” attitude were refreshing and a pleasure to work with.   Although our efforts to purchase a business ultimately did not come to fruition, it was time well spent as I have found in Lenny a trusted ally and a solid resource.   I will not hesitate to utilize your company and Lenny in the future should I again have a need for business brokerage services.”
– Tim Dublin, Boise, ID

“As co-owner of a $30M food processing sales company, I was extremely impressed with the creative and professional manner in which Art Berry generated three “competitive bid offers” which resulted in a very positive outcome in a difficult sale of 50% of my company…”

“I would like to thank you for your services in the recent sale of our business, Foot Solutions of Idaho Falls.   The Arthur Berry Company was recommended to us by a friend.   We are happy to say we were not disappointed.   Your agent, Bill Spofford, was very thorough in the initial assessment of our business.  ….I give my highest endorsement to the Arthur Berry Company for anyone considering buying or selling a business.”

“Mr. Berry, I would first like to congratulate you and your company on an excellent web site – it has been extremely useful in getting a handle on how to assess the worth of a company. Thank you for your help.”

“…This sale/purchase has been like pulling teeth as we’re sure you will agree. Your firm, yourself, your office staff and especially Mr. Ronald Winkler, remained professional, helpful and ethical throughout this ordeal, which was the main reason we stayed the course and saw this through. We truly appreciate all the effort you put forth for us and our corporation. Mr. Winkler especially deserves special mention. From day one, he conducted himself in a totally professional and ethical manner. He represented your firm in an exemplary manner and was totally straight-forward and honest and never once did he insult our intelligence or try to guide our decisions by giving us ‘legal advice.’   He simply told it like it was. Without your reputable firm behind us, we would have thrown up our hands in disgust and declared a ‘sale fail’ and walked away. We are confident we will be successful in our new business.”
– Stanley and Suzanne Schoonover, SASSE Inc.


“When a former college marketing professor lists a business, what does he hope to receive from the broker?   Answer: Exactly what we received from Arthur Berry & Company!   From the outset, I was impressed with (Art Berry’s) analysis and valuation.   Your packaging of the business created a very professional image, and your advertising was right on the mark.   Furthermore, you delivered a qualified buyer within 60 days and stayed close to the transaction right through to the closing.   I don’t know what else one can ask for…   Thanks for the great service.”
– Walt Bader, The Bader Company
