Testimonials

I spoke to John a few years ago and when it was time to sell, I immediately reached out to him. We listed and sold in a very short period and he had the perfect buyer ready to go. As we approached settlement, the buyer communicated to me that they were in the process of purchasing another business with a different broker. The buyer was highly impressed and appreciative that our transaction transpired so quickly and seamlessly. This was down to John’s efficiency, management and expertise. John was outstanding and an absolute pleasure to work with. He achieved a phenomenal price, and an amazing result! John Kasapi receives another Benchmark Business Sales Review.

I can now see why John Kasapi is the best business broker in the country. He it truly outstanding at what he does and how he delivers amazing service. It is impressive to see how easily he made the sale go so smoothly. His pro-active approach was refreshing – not once did I have to ring him to find out what was happening with the process. He would even call me to touch base if he didn’t have an update – just to keep in touch! I’m also buying another salon business at the moment though a different business broker and I can see the difference between the two is so wide. I have dealt with a few different business brokers over the past few months, and some have actually lost their client a potential sale due to lack of communication. I still have not completed the other business purchase yet which was started 6 weeks before this one. I can understand that John really has the process down pat and just makes it so easy to move through the many steps that need to be completed. When I am ready to purchase another business in the next 6 months I will not hesitate to work with John again. Thanks John! John Kasapi receives another Benchmark Business Sales Review.

Des Pawelski , 12 Aug 2020 I have been in business for 51 years as cladding contractor with up to 100 employees who work in a factory and on larger commercial building sites. Two years ago I reached the stage where I felt that I should look to sell the business and started meeting with business brokers who advertised in the newspaper’s classified and on Google. None of the brokers seemed to genuinely understand my business or how to find a buyer. Late last year a competitor from another state phoned and said that he was interested in selling his business. He mentioned talking with a broker who was putting together a number of similar contracting businesses to sell to an investment group. Soon after, I was in contact with Ian Haggerty of Benchmark Corporate based in Queensland. From the beginning Ian was very professional and in every conversation he demonstrated his industry knowledge and expertise as a broker. Ian took the time to understand my position and then pointed out the advantages and pitfalls in selling my business. We discussed a marketing plan along with an Information Memorandum showing what the business had done in the past, the future potential and the asset/liability position. Things were looking promising. An advantage of the Benchmark organisation is that they have over 65 brokers operating throughout Australia and a huge buyer data base of potential buyers who have looked at businesses they had for sale in the past. From this pool we soon had prospective purchasers looking over the business, some expressed interest, others thought that the type of business was too hands on for them as every contract we perform is a bit different. In February the COVID virus struck causing major delays on a number of our larger projects, which caused significant cash flow issues. Things were looking grim and my hopes of a sale started to diminish. I consulted with a liquidator over insolvency concerns and administration was recommended (my cashflow had halved). Selling my business now appeared impossible - the employee accruals from long serving workers was a significant problem. I informed Ian that I had sought the advice of a liquidator and was intending on placing the company into administration. Ian strongly advised against taking such drastic action and recommended an immediate consultation with ReGroup Solutions, a firm of Turnaround Practitioners. Ian had worked with the ReGroup team previously and gotten excellent results. ReGroup Solutions provided excellent financial advice and guidance and I was able to regain control of trading operations. I then contacted some local businesses (who Ian had contacted previously) and was able to inform them that the crisis situation had been resolved and I was now able to continue trading whilst exploring offers for a sale of the business. Out of the multiple enquiries Ian received, we were left with two companies with serious offers on the table (despite this being around the time of the COVID virus outbreak). Ian collaborated with ReGroup Solutions and set about negotiating with the interested parties. Due to Ian’s involvement and assistance from ReGroup Solutions, we finally agreed a fair market sale of the business and the majority of employees jobs were saved. Ian went beyond the call of duty and negotiated a very reasonable two year consultancy position with the purchaser.   With the pandemic, these are very turbulent times. If you are concerned about succession or looking to sell your business, then I highly recommend Ian Haggerty from Benchmark. Ian is extremely adept at strategically managing the negotiations, assessing the genuineness of prospective buyers and then closing the best deal for his client. Ian’s approach was professional and he maintains strict confidentiality throughout. Ian understood the opportunity and potential for my business and then presented this to prospective buyers in the best light. Thanks Ian and Benchmark.

"Thank you, John, for getting my business sold. John had a buyer straight away to Purchase our business. The process did take some time going through leasing which painfully long. The shopping Centre took 8 weeks to process the application and then with the Covid 19 we nearly lost the buyer but John was straight on to it making the necessary call to The Centre to make sure The buyers were approved. To finish off we settled the business the same day salons got told to close. Remarkable effort during these crazy times." John Kasapi receives another Benchmark Business Sales Review.

ReGroup Solutions , 12 Aug 2020 Ian’s client was a director who had been in business for 51 years as cladding contractor. The Company had up to 100 employees working from owned factory premises and on-site at large commercial building sites nationally. The Director had been thinking of succession and made contact with Ian to investigate the sales potential of his long-standing and reputable business. Unfortunately, the COVID-19 crisis struck and the Company’s supply chain was severely impacted. The Director sought the advice of a registered liquidator, who recommended external administration. The Director’s hopes of achieving a positive sale quickly diminished and the position with the bank meant there was now a serious risk he would lose his family home.  Operating nationally, Benchmark has a huge database of prospective buyers and Ian had already generated significant genuine interest by drafting an impressive Information Memorandum and selectively negotiating with several key interested parties. Ian was concerned over the liquidator’s advice to his Client. The Director was being pressured into placing the company into voluntary administration (which Ian could see was premature and too drastic). Ian had identified his Client’s potential and felt that any insolvency procedure would unnecessarily destroy the company’s goodwill and asset values.  ReGroup Solutions would like to give a huge thanks to Ian for referring his client, the Director, to us for a second opinion. After conducting our preliminary analysis, ReGroup Solutions advised the Director on his capacity to utilise the ‘insolvency safe harbour’ under section 588GA. The new legislation, effective since September 2017, provides directors with protection from insolvent trading personal liability whilst they explore a range of restructuring and turnaround strategies. This enabled the Director to continue trading his business so that a ‘going concern’ sale could still be actively pursued by Ian. This meant Ian could still maximise the outcome for his Client by continuing his strategic negotiations.  ReGroup Solutions provided initial crisis management advice and then proceeded to investigate the various restructuring and turnaround options with the Director. The insolvency Safe Harbour provided the director with breathing space and enabled Ian Haggerty to continue his negotiating with key interested parties. The team at ReGroup Solutions worked closely with Ian Haggerty throughout the entire process – despite being an extremely complex matter, made worst by the COVID crisis, we’re delighted to say that Ian successfully negotiated a tremendous outcome for his Client!   Ian lead the way in agreeing a sale of his Client’s business, assets and the large factory premises. This not only meant the majority of workforce kept their jobs but the indebtedness to the bank could also be fully satisfied. The Director’s home was no longer at risk and Ian’s Client stands to walk away with potential surplus of $1.5m. The deal stands to return 100c in the dollar to trade creditors. Ian even secured his client a two year consultancy position with the purchaser - and at an exceptional rate! Ian’s Client can now take a well-deserved step back, with his impeccable reputation intact.   On a personal level, it was an absolute pleasure collaborating with a skilled negotiator such as Ian. The very purpose of the insolvency Safe Harbour is to help the director find a ‘better outcome’ for all stakeholders by utilising a skilled team of professionals. In this particular case, Ian was able to get an outstanding outcome for his Client on multiple levels. This was despite the extremely difficult and volatile market conditions.  Congratulations to Ian Haggerty on what has ended up being a landmark Safe Harbour win for his Client!

Tom Calderwood , 10 Oct 2019 Thank you Troy Foran for the determination and professionalism with the regards to the sale of my business  The whole process was daunting to me in the beginning and I was not confident that I would get the outcome I wanted. Appointing you as my broker was certainly the right decision. You kept me apprised of any developments and updates and was always very flexible time wise in meeting with potential buyers and myself. You never intentionally got my hopes up ("There are no guarantees until the money's in the bank" you would say). As it turned out there were complications with a purchaser who signed an agreement however never honored it. You immediately went straight back to work and revamped the ad for our business and generated a tonne of new interest which resulted in a new purchaser within only a few months. Thank you for your professional service and I would certainly recommend Benchmark to anyone intending to sell their business.

We have been very fortunate to have IAN SALTER from BENCHMARK BUSINESS SALES & VALUATIONS handle the sale of our business. Ian is to be commended for his professionalism and integrity in negotiating the sale of a complex business. He managed the entire sales process efficiently and competently and in doing so achieved a very satisfactory result. Ian, Thank you for your perseverance and patience. We are confident that other clients will also benefit from your expertise and we thoroughly recommend you. Ian Salter receives another Benchmark Business Sales Review.

"We received a post card in the mail and I was initially skeptical of this as it said that John had someone wanting to buy my business, however I gave John a call and he appraised the business and he said his buyer was keen. Within two days we had done an inspection and I received an offer. At the start I wanted to be in control but quickly discovered that I needed to leave it to the expert. John was a master at getting the job done and managing the process until the very end. I am extremely happy, I got a fantastic price, smooth quick sale and I got to stay on as a hairdresser with the new owner. It was truly the result that I didn’t even contemplate was possible until I spoke with John.

Seller , 29 Sep 2020 Nikki  managed to negotiate with both the buyer and Head office to get the deal to work for everyone. She systematically worked through each and every detail and kept all parties informed of all the steps along the way. I am chuffed to bits with the results of working with “Australia’s No1 Business Broker” nationally and I now I know why? Amazing service and amazing girl! I am looking forward to that beer with Nikki that we talked about and I will thank her personally then but for now, I am happy to recommend Nikki and Benchmark Salon Sales and the fabulous work that they do.

Seller , 29 Sep 2020 She was the obvious choice when I decided to sell due to family commitments and she stepped up straight away. She had a lot of the paperwork still on file and quickly moved to finding a buyer. The buyer made an offer and I accepted – then Covid-19 hit! Due to the uncertainty the buyer pulled out. Nikki advised that she would return her deposit but would speak to her when everything calmed down. Nikki re-engaged the buyer, the buyer agreed to proceed and Nikki reinstated the contract.  The outcome was that my salon sold yesterday and I am delighted. Nikki did an excellent job at keeping the buyer updated and she assessed the timing perfectly to resurrect the deal AND got me a great result too! If I had another broker working on this (with less skill and experience), I am not sure the outcome would have been the same. Delighted!

Tom Inglis , 12 Aug 2020 Belinda kept me abreast of the process, pressed me when I needed it and was integral to our business growth.

Jennifer Kennedy , 12 Aug 2020 Thank you to Belinda who is a thoroughly professional broker and a delight to do business with. We could not have done it with out her, she is knowledgeable, efficient and a very good communicator. I would recommend her as someone you can trust.

John O – Seller , 25 Jun 2019 “Sylvia has been totally professional, knowledgeable and there at every twist and turn. We had a number of problems along the way and each time Sylvia kept the sale on track and took action to get the deal done. At times our emotions got the better of us but Sylvia made us feel that we were in safe hands. Sylvia, actually found a buyer quickly for our Salon and we settled within 4 months, the purchaser is the perfect fit for my Skin Clinic, allowing me to walk away with confidence and knowing my clients will be in good hands. I strongly recommend Benchmark Salon Sales.

Gino , 05 Feb 2020 Bought the salon through Nikki a year or so ago and decided that I would go back to my old career, so contacted Nikki for her help in selling it. She helped with all the negotiations with the buyer and made the whole thing go smoothly. She sold the salon in a matter of weeks! Benchmark Salon Sales

Sam , 06 Feb 2020 Thank you, Nikki, for everything you have done in finding my salon for me. It only goes to show you how good you are when I am already on the phone looking for my next salon to buy and came straight to you. You have sent me some further salons and taking your advice as always. Yes, I look forward to our next deal.

Maria , 06 Feb 2020 Clyde thank you for your amazing work! If I didn’t have a heart attack yesterday I never will!! This was absolutely such hard work for you and I really appreciate it. Merry Christmas and best luck for the future.

Albina Jakini , 06 Feb 2020 Thanks Clyde for everything that you have done, You were there at every step to smooth out any rough times so that I could settle on the business. You knew what was happening every step of the way to guide me through what needed to be done. There were definitely a few times that I wasn’t sure if it would happen. Thank you for your help and support good working with you. Thanks again for your efforts!

Chris , 06 Feb 2020 I have always wanted to buy this salon and Nikki made it possible. At first, I was reluctant to share any personal details with Nikki but once I met with her, I instantly trusted her and opened. She helped me from start to finish and even pushed hard at the end when I wanted the salon to settle at a certain date and she promised she would make it happen. She did. She is a strong woman, working to help other strong women to achieve their dreams!

Peter , 19 May 2020 I engage the services of Nikki to help me find a hairdresser to buy my salon. Nikki found a great candidate and worked with her, the management agent and landlord to reach an amicable agreement for the lease. I am happy to say that this is the second time I have dealt with Nikki and she has delivered a quality service each time. Good luck Nikki with your next deal and all the best.

Hess. Maria & Vicki , 30 Jun 2020 Working with Nikki could not have been easier. She promised me she would find a buyer for the salon and she delivered! Within a short timeframe, she found a Cash purchaser, delivered an agreeable offer, put it to contract and within 3 weeks, we are SOLD! She took care of everything from landlord approval, lease negotiation and handover. She was efficient and organised plus her style of dealing with all situations matched ours perfectly, so it was seamless and never felt stressful. We were in very capable hands with an expert in her field. We got on famously together as we hit our stride working together. Excellent service Nikki, thank you and we are delighted to provide this glowing testimonial for your next client to understand what you can do for them too

Bernice , 30 Jun 2020 OMG, what a ride! In the middle of Covid-19, Nikki achieved a sale which at times, with lockdown, we thought was never going to happen. It just goes to show. Persistence can prevail even in the trickiest of markets and market was exceptional. Most brokers would have given up. Nikki, your job was to bring me a buyer. Despite the challenges of me being a first-time seller, and the market being mid-covid-19! You did it…...I believe a match made in heaven. I am excited to sell and he is excited to buy! The buyer is exceptional, it truly is a good match. I am confident that I have sold the salon in good faith, that my staff will be looked after and the salon will thrive, under the new ownership. That it will continue to flourish was so important to me. Thank you Nikki

Leeann , 30 Jun 2020 I first met Nikki when I started looking for a business to buy and she has taken care of me ever since! She has mentored me, educated me, and supported me throughout. She helped me pick the right salons to suit my lifestyle and has worked with me to develop my strategy. She achieved this because she took time to get to know me, my time limitations, and my skills & capabilities. They she found me the right fit! She has even recommended solicitors, products & staff to work with. She is really is a one stop shop of help, guidance and support and I could not have bought my 2 amazing salons without her! Nikki – you really are No1 Broker in the country and I am proud to say Angie & I now consider you a friend, thanks for being on this journey with us!

Sam & Caitlin , 11 Aug 2020 Thanks, Nikki, for taking care of me through this very tricky journey of buying a hair & Beauty business in the middle of Covid-19. We are not sure how I would have managed without your help and guidance. Here we are today the proud owners of a fabulous business and it was you that made that happen for us. It was a pleasure to work with you and I look forward to our next venture together.

Lynn , 13 Dec 2018 Amazing job Benchmark – we can now happily move on with our new-found retirement. After some ill health and moving away, I found it ever more difficult to run the salon and that’s when Benchmark stepped in to help! They set up a viewing and called a number of their buyers and negotiated everything from start to finish. Great achievement and great result. I am grateful for your help and appreciate everything you have done for me and now I can relax and let me salon go to a great new owner

Mary Kobovos , 13 Dec 2018 I have been looking to purchase a salon for number of years and after speaking with Benchmark they showed me the exact salon that suited my requirements. I am now absolutely delighted with my business and look forward in making it a success

Angela Jankovic , 21 Feb 2019 It is with pleasure to write this reference for Belinda who is assisting me with selling property on the Gold Coast. I have only known Belinda for a few months but can express my appreciation and gratitude towards the way she has assisted me through the process of selling a property. It can be quite daunting at times, but Belinda just knows how to take that pressure off you by her wisdom and knowledge of the industry. Belinda is very efficient when it comes to communication, always keeping me up to date on whatever is transpiring, which is very important to me, thus displaying confidence in her ability in selling property.

Julie Griggs , 18 Mar 2019 Benchmark were a great help in the buying process. We had to finalize a new lease which took some time however they were always on top of things and even helped get us cheaper rent from the landlord.

Melinda Luchini , 18 Mar 2019 “Benchmarks brokers experience is famous throughout the industry. We knew they specialized in salon and clinic sales, so when we were ready to sell we knew whom to contact. When we listed the salon on the market we let the broker know that we had only a few months to get it sold. They delivered a buyer and a contract almost instantly and sold it record time. The biggest concern I had was the landlord being overseas and having a strict approval process. However Benchmark managed to get the buyer approved and finalize the lease within the time frame, I now get more time with my young family. Thanks again”

Boyan Ristovski , 18 Mar 2019 Thank you very much for all you support during the process. We could not have asked for a better broker or a more patient person to deal with during the long 6 month process it took to get to settlement but we are extremely happy with the outcome.  You were always available for us and we appreciate that. Thank you to you and your company for seeing this trough to the end.

Steven Peter , 18 Mar 2019 I first came across Benchmark when purchasing the Greville Clinic in October 2018, During the negotiations for this purchase my broker displayed consideration for both the vendor and the myself, always displaying attention to detail, efficiency and a solution-oriented mindset, making the process entirely seemless. Benchmark pursued all requests for more detailed information in a timely manner and kept me updated on the status of these requests. They were extremely supportive and considerate in all areas of the business purchase and it has been a pleasure to conduct business with you.

Tracey Bond , 18 Mar 2019 “I was so pleased when I followed a recommended from a colleague to utilise Benchmark for the sale of my salon. Throughout the process I found them to be approachable and professional at all times, we overcame many hurdles in which Benchmark successfully negotiated them all. The sale of my business has been completed and I would recommend them to anyone who wants a professional service and results.”

Eleni Kondo , 18 Mar 2019 To all prospective business sellers, I would have no hesitation in recommending Benchmark as your business agent. They were very professional, organise & provided a high level of communication & care. Our broker was there every step of the way through a somewhat difficult & prompt sale. I'm a former licensed real estate agent so have experience in the industry & have never had to outsource for a service I'm capable of doing but I'm very glad I did. Well worth the money. Thank you!

Nila and Bruce , 18 Mar 2019 Nila and I are very proud to endorse Benchmark as exceptional business brokers.  Their attention to detail and willingness to go the extra mile was second to none.  This was our first experience in purchasing a business and lessons learnt with the assistance of Benchmark was huge. I recommend anyone who is a novice in this world to engage their company to guide you through all the unknown pitfalls of purchasing an existing business. Thank you and I wish you all the best in the future.

Lisa Oakes , 08 Apr 2019 I got a phone call out of the blue from Clyde who said that he had a buyer and really wanted me to list my salon so that he could introduce them to my salon, it was all quite random but the timing was perfect because I was scheduled to have surgery early in the new year and would be out of action for months after the surgery. I was a little dubious that there really was a buyer, but I actually received an offer the day after I signed the agreement! Things definitely weren’t all smooth sailing though. The contract period went over the Christmas break and then the buyer had to go overseas for 6 weeks and all the accountants and solicitors were also on holidays! I thought the sale was off however Clyde was very calm and reassured me that the sale would proceed when the buyer was back from overseas, which it did. Now I can focus on my recovery without the stress of running the business, awesome job!

Keith Marshall , 08 Apr 2019 I would definitely recommend Clyde and the Benchmark Salon Sales team for buying a hair and beauty salon I initially tried to purchase another salon through Clyde but the seller pulled out of the deal and removed the business from the market. We were immediately introduced to another business which was even better suited to us. Clyde has been excellent throughout the entire process, even when I had to go overseas on business for 6 weeks during the contract period. I would definitely recommend Clyde and the Benchmark Salon Sales team for buying a hair and beauty salon.

Brad Jones , 11 Jun 2019 Emma was fantastic. She was always available and would do anything to answer questions and really went the extra mile to get the sale through. She is personable and easy to get along with and I would recommend her to anyone and would definitely use her services to sell or buy a business going forward.

Seller Sarah , 25 Jun 2019 “I contacted Nikki when I was pregnant with my first baby and asked her to help me sell my beautiful salon. She came highly recommended as my best friend’s mum also sold their salon through Nikki 6 months ago so I knew I was working with the right person. She took care of the whole sale process from start to finish and I sold my salon on the very day my baby was born! I cannot wait to start the next stages of my life and a massive thank you Nikki for taking care of everything and for minimising the stress of it all for me - allowing me to concentrate on my baby boy.

Buyer , 25 Jun 2019 “I spoke about a year ago enquiring about a hair salon in the western Suburbs. We discussed location and she told me I had just missed a couple of salons in the area now under contract. I told her what I was looking for and she promised to call me if she had the “right fit’ of salon for me. About 2 month ago, she called me and invited me to look at something. She provided all the information quickly and we made an offer. Today, I am now the proud owner of a stunning new salon and I am so delighted that Nikki and I spoke as it is just perfect for what we were looking for. Nikki, I appreciate you keeping me in your mind and matching us to the right salon. I hope to work with you again in the future”

Antionette Thorpe , 08 Apr 2019 One of the most important things I wanted in selling my business was a good tenant as I owned the building. Benchmark delivered a fantastic buyer and even arranged for me to stay on as an employee which works really great for both parties. The business was sold quickly, smoothly and for a great price. I am so delighted with the result.

Rebekah Pike , 08 Apr 2019 I was getting a bit worried about Benchmark not being able to deliver a sale for me. My lease was nearly up and I needed to get out ASAP without walking away from the business I had built up. They finally pulled a rabbit out of their hat and found a buyer that took over the business just before the end of lease and he helped them get a brand new lease and approval from the landlord. I was in New Zealand for the entire process and they went above and beyond by becoming our chauffeur and picked us up from the airport and drove us to the salon on the day of settlement to finalise the sale. A great result in the end!

Shane Ayre , 13 Dec 2018 “I would just like to say a very big thank you to you personally and to Benchmark for handling the recent and very successful acquisition of Akwa Worx & Akwa Facility Maintenance Pty Ltd to ASX listed De.Mem Ltd. The whole process was very quick and efficient and the drive from you with my instructions to do was done in a very professional manner. Once again thank you and I would have no concerns giving recommendation to any of my colleges should they wish to go forth with a sale.” Ian Haggerty receives another Benchmark Business Sales Review.

I’m happy as I haven’t had to say goodbye to the business I’ve been able to stay on and work part time for the new owner a great result for all parties

"I truly got the best service When I decided to sell I initially approached John however I decide to go with another broker but they never delivered. Fast forward another 4 years from that day and I went back to John who finally got my business sold.

Marigold Lukin , 13 Dec 2018 Everything has fallen into place, I’m a very proud owner of my own salon. I’ve been wanting to own my own salon for some time but never clicked with anything. Then Benchmark contacted me about an opportunity and I grabbed it with both hands and I’m glad I did. Thanks for all your help and guidance

Harry & Manu , 13 Dec 2018 I knew we were onto something when we first met the Benchmark team.  They knew exactly what we should look at as an investment. They showed us a couple of salons but highlighted the one that they thought would best suit our needs and they are now helping me find the next one! Their knowledge is second to none and they worked through every step with you and explained it all as we went! I know that Benchmark will help us further with building our brand and adding to our portfolio. Thanks Benchmark  Benchmark Salon Sales

Amy , 13 Dec 2018 I contacted Nikki to begin the search for a salon. After speaking to Nikki about what I wanted, she called me and invited me to look at a lovely salon, she thought would be perfect for me….and it was! She showed me how to go about buying a salon and she helped me with sorting out a plan to make it work for both parties. Today, my dreams have come true with my own salon. Thank you Nikki, it is perfect for me! Thank you for all your help and making it happen!

Steven , 13 Dec 2018 I have dealt with Benchmark before when buying a salon so it was a no brainer that I should get them to sell my salon too! They dealt with everything efficiently and they practically sold the salon on the first week to one of their investors! Benchmark really proved that they are the “go to” company when it comes to selling salons – Thanks for the fast results! It seemed smooth sailing and I got a great result – all because they really know their market! I would have no hesitation in recommending Benchmark.

Dennis , 13 Dec 2018 Working away from home when selling a salon is not easy but Benchmark took care of everything. They set up viewings after hours, confirmed all arrangements along the way and liaised with my conveyancer, which helped the process. Thanks Benchmark for finding a great buyer for the salon and I can now concentrate on my other business more knowing that the salon is in good hands. Appreciate you coordinating everything! Thanks for your service

Vicki & Dea , 13 Dec 2018 Thanks Benchmark for all your assistance when we were buying our salon. Although seasoned hairdressers, we had not bought a business before and you walked us through the process step by step, answered all our questions efficiently along the way. We are really happy that we are now the proud owners of our own salon and we look forward to showing you what we have done with the place! Thanks again for your help

Jessica & Tom , 13 Dec 2018 We highly recommend Nikki Katz for a sale of the business. You know you are in the right hands selling a hair or beauty salon. Nikki knows the industry and does all the hard work for you. Even with the ups and downs you can go through selling a business Nikki will hold your hand and walk you through it

Hamish , 13 Dec 2018 Wow – what a ride Nikki! When selling my salon I didn’t know there could be so many things to work out and negotiate so a massive thank you Nikki, for keeping me on track through this difficult process. There were many twists and turns in the road but you broke them down step by step and dealt with each one as you came across it, and it worked! I am now happy to have completed the salon of my salon and I am enjoying the new direction I am moving in. Thanks Nikki for working with me through this and for achieving the best result possible!

Anne-Marie & Craig , 13 Dec 2018 My husband and I were on the lookout for a fully managed business as an investment and as a gentle entry into the small business world. We were lucky enough to come across Nikki who was extremely patient in helping us navigate the unfamiliar terms and environment. As novices in the small business world but experienced in general business we found her to be extremely knowledgeable and she answered all our queries without hesitation and with such a supportive approach. We believe she was out to represent both vendor’s and purchaser’s interests and to make the process as smooth as possible. We are very pleased to have started our journey and highly recommend Nikki as a broker

Caitlin , 13 Dec 2018 I contacted Nikki as I was looking for a second salon and enquired about one she has advertised. She discussed it with me and answered all my questions then set me up with a viewing and I knew immediately this was the “one”. Nikki helped me with all aspects of the purchase and last week I started work at my new salon. Thank you Nikki – you kept in touch throughout and today everything is sorted. I appreciate everything you did to get me my new salon

Samantha , 13 Dec 2018 I bought my salon from Nikki so it was only natural that I contacted Nikki when selling! I was on the market about a week when found the purchaser then worked with hard helping her get her finances in order and also negotiated the lease with the management agent. She took control and other than paperwork that I had to prepare, Nikki took care of everything. She also put me in touch with a great solicitor too! Nikki is now arranging the next purchase for me!

Nicole , 13 Dec 2018 WOW– what a journey! I contacted Nikki 18 months ago when I was pregnant with my second child and she helped me find a buyer for my salon. I decided that I could cope and was reluctant to sell so I changed my mind! Nikki advised me that 2 kids (talking from her own experience) was a lot to handle but understood my decision. After the birth of my son, I realized that I just wanted to spend time with my young family and so my first call was to Nikki. She brought a couple of buyers through and we found the “right fit’ when Amy came along. I knew my clients would love her. Today, Amy bought my salon and I can now relax & enjoy bring my time with my beautiful children. Better still, Nikki negotiated that I still work in the salon one day a week but with flexibility! Thanks Nikki for the perfect result. I am delighted with the outcome

"Phenomenal is the word that I would use to describe John Kasapi from Benchmark Business Sales & Valuations, l originally had my day spa listed with another agent for many months with absolutely no results. I was then lucky enough to be recommended to John, in our initial conversation I had one requirement and that was for my business to be sold ASAP and gave him a deadline to get the job done within the next 4 weeks. John used his extensive industry contact list to reach out and find a suitable buyer that ticked all the boxes. Within 3 weeks he amazingly finalised the business sale. It was absolutely remarkable and I believe one of the quickest sales on record. He found the buyer, he got full asking price, we went to contract and settled within 3 weeks.

J. Hoppe , 13 Dec 2018 ” I first met Michael from Benchmark Business after I made a phone call to enquire about Benchmark Business, systems and ended up making an appointment to meet with Michael, that was in August 2013. Michael travelled from Brisbane to Toowoomba to meet with me and I was able to find out what he thought he could to sell our business and he found out all he could about our business, my husband, myself and why we wanted to sell. I was quite impressed with what Michael thought he could do to sell our business but I had to convince my husband to go with him as after having a couple of not so good experiences with other big name brokers and feeling ripped off he was very hesitant. Michael was persistent and rang me on average every two months for a chat and to see how we were going and did not pressure me at all. I got so used to his calls if he missed ringing I would ring him and touch base as I did not want to lose contact with him as I felt I could trust him to do the right thing when we were ready to list our business. Early in 2015 we were ready to list the business and property for sale so Michael came and met with my husband Graham and myself and everything went from there, there was only a small fee for the putting together of the business information memorandum for prospective buyers to view, this I felt he had done a great job putting together, the information in it was spot on. There were a few interesting enquiries and many discussions with Michael and I always felt comfortable with him and knew he understood where I was coming from so trust was growing for both of us then in the end of March and early April thing started to get interesting with lots of information going back and forth for several interested parties and by June we thought we had a buyer but then they backed away just before settlement in July, what a disappointment for us and Michael as we had worked so hard. Michael followed up with another party that had shown quite good interest and with lots more to-ing and throwing of information and much patience from both Michael and ourselves we finally got an offer we were happy with and accepted and things progressed from there and Contracts were signed and our business was sold on the 4th of December 2015. During 2015, our eldest daughter was seriously ill and I had to spend many months in Cairns caring for her, which made it very hard at times, but Michael always asked how she was and how I was coping and offered great support, this I greatly appreciated. During the time spent working with Michael over two years to achieve a successful sale, I felt we had built a bond of respect, trust and honest with each other and a friend ship had formed between us which I hope continues for many years. I am thankful I went with my gut feelings and put my trust in Michael of Benchmark Business. ” Yours sincerely J. Hoppe

Name Undisclosed , 13 Dec 2018 This is a very exciting time for us, as we have just purchased 6 new sites to add to our current portfolio and a new private product line! None of this could have been made possible if it wasn’t for Benchmark, as we had already purchased a site with them before we were on their radar.  They came to us with this opportunity and we knew it was a sound investment, yet again Benchmark stepped up each and every time when matters needed to be addressed. They assisted us with leasing and ensured that the lawyers stayed on track!! Which was a task in itself.  We look forward to working with Benchmark again in the future and would recommend anyone looking to expand their business.

Gino , 01 Jun 2018 I contacted Benchmark when I was looking for a business to run “under management” and they showed me one that had literally just come onto their books that morning that they thought would be perfect for me. Benchmark walked me through the numbers & provided comparisons too. They took time to educate me about the way to get the best from the salon. Benchmark introduced me to the current owner, who had similar skills & background, which put my mind at ease. I understand that my broker looked at the best businesses for me to run & matched that perfectly. Well Done Benchmark – you nailed the brief!

Bare Again , 01 Jun 2018 We recently sold our business with Benchmark Business Sales. They were very professional and had an excellent understanding of what we wanted to achieve with the sale and the best way to approach it. As busy professionals, Benchmark made the whole process flow smoothly and achieved the best outcome for us in a timely manner. I would not hesitate to recommend Benchmark to anyone looking to sell their business

All I need to say is that Benchmark really are the kings of salons and I felt so comfortable and at easy with them, they always kept me up to date with the whole process and went through all the steps with me.

Suzette Jones , 01 May 2018 Wow Wow Wow This process was a whole lot easy than I ever thought it would be – I listed and sold within a matter of weeks. I had heard so many horror stories but my sale was a breeze. I had been in my salon for over 25 years and it was my baby! To finally come to the decision to sell my salon was a very emotional period for me and even more of a struggle was to find someone that I could trust and understood my concerns and needs! I had to know that I was going to work with a broker who understood me and our industry and wasn’t just full of hot air and over promising and under delivers. I had done my research and couldn’t have been happier with my choice to use Benchmark, the process was seamless and before you knew it, it was SOLD!!! I was even overseas while the settlement happened, this just shows how hard Benchmark worked on getting the salon sold quickly and how well they managed the entire sale, and they really do have the contacts within the industry and get the job done. Wow Wow Wow!!!

Sarah Withers , 01 May 2018 Benchmark helped in finding our first hair salon. They have been instrumental, professional and easy to deal with.

We would definitely recommend them and for any business purchase or sale process.

Kate Mcdonald , 01 Apr 2018 I recently returned from living overseas and I knew I wanted to jump straight into running my own business. I came across an advertisement on the benchmark website and the broker so easy to talk to. He showed me a number of salons and when I finally made the decision to buy and I stepped into the business I knew It was meant to be!! We had a quite few issues to overcome but when the going got tough Benchmark was always at the end of the phone helping the process along and answering all my questions, this is the start of my business empire!!! Thanks Benchmark.

Mark , 01 Feb 2018 I contacted Nikki after finding her as the agent for many salons in Sydney. She found me a great salon that suited my needs. Nikki and I worked together from there as she broke down the information about the salon of interest. She assisted with all aspects of the purchase, despite me sometimes being overseas and in hard to reach areas. She facilitated all the negotiations with landlords and vendor on my behalf and also recommended a solicitor that she works with to help with the contract. Great salon- great job Nikki. Thanks for all your help

Magdaleine , 01 Feb 2018 I asked Nikki to sell my salon for me and what a result! I am delighted to be able to move on with all my travel plans and spending time with my grandchildren and the salon is now in the hands of a great dad & daughter team who will look after my clients well. Thank-you Nikki for taking care of everything and I wish you all the best. You really are the Queen of salon sales! Much appreciated!

Zoe , 01 Feb 2018 I had contacted Benchmark just before my lease ran out and I was planning to close the salon as I wanted to concentrate on my young family. The purchaser ended up being a customer of the salon and our broker helped get her through leasing, finance etc etc by explaining to her what was involved. The result was excellent as I have now sold my salon to a great girl and I have come out with some money to allow me to relax and enjoy my time off with my baby. Best result that could have happened. Thanks Benchmark for helping me thorough it.

Jon Collins , 01 Jan 2018 I was put onto Benchmark to help manage the salon buying sale process, I found them very helpful and driven to get the sale completed.

No-one was getting back to me or showing me what I wanted, then I spoke with Benchmark and since they were from the industry they knew exactly what my requirements were. I’ve now been able to get my first salon and kick start my business empire. Exciting times ahead thanks again."

Samantha Jones , 01 Jan 2018 I’m probably one of the happiest seller you will find! Benchmark was fanatical at managing the sale and guiding the entire process. I got the price I wanted and a quick sale. Thanks for all your efforts

Kathy Edgar , 01 Jan 2018 I bought a salon previously through a different broker, but I had spoken to Benchmark in the past and knew they had the inside knowledge and professionalism to get my salon sold.

I’m now able to make a fresh start in 2018 – Thank you Benchmark.

CJ Morello- , 01 Jan 2018 After looking at many salons with many brokers – we have finally bought a fantastic salon. Thank you for all your dedication and patience throughout.

April , 01 Feb 2017 I heard about the salon being on the market and got in touch with Benchmark. From the start, they helped me get through the maze of purchasing a salon as I was new to the Industry. They took care of everything from landlord approval, form filling, business plan and finance and finally, I am in my very own salon. They even assisted me after settlement with some maintenance issues and so I cannot express enough how happy I am to have had Benchmark in my corner! Thanks

"I went to see Keith Brewster at Benchmark in July when the turnover for our business, which deals mostly with overseas clients, had dropped by around 80%. Nine months prior to that we had signed a three year lease, so our situation was not good. As well as the lease payments, we also had the ongoing cost of maintaining the small amount business that was left. Keith gave me some hope that we may be able to dispose of the business, & set about on a very professional & comprehensive marketing programme with other Benchmark staff. This achieved quite a few enquiries. Keith kept in very regular contact with me at all times, & after any enquiry or inspection he gave me full feedback. When he found the buyer, Keith did a magnificent job liaising with buyer, seller, & lawyers. This was a difficult business to sell, & I congratulate Keith & the team at Benchmark on their success. This result has taken a large weight from my mind, thank you. I would strongly recommend Keith & Benchmark if you have a business to sell." - Kevin Meagher | December 2020 Keith Brewster receives another Benchmark Business Sales Review.
