  • There is a clear role for advisors to play in negotiating transactions between buyers and sellers. The best advisors facilitate the transaction by figuring out the core motivations of both parties and getting them to rationalize what is important to them. Jeff from ExitBig represented the seller, and he moderated and represented his client in a manner which still allowed us to express our priorities. In the end, we completed a transactions that was good for both parties. This is the definition of a good deal; both sides fell they got what they wanted. I give Jeff a lot of the credit for this. I would highly recommend him and his team.

  • We trusted Jeff and his team to sell our first business to an outside party and that is exactly what they did.  We were impressed by how tremendously hard they worked and how effective they were in bringing numerous offers from multiple buyers to the table.  Their work gave us the freedom to select the offer and the buyer that we felt was the best fit.   Jeff and his team quickly grasped the workings of our business and used that understanding to creatively structure deals that made sense to both sides.  It took a lot of persistence for ExitBig to create a win-win for both parties but they were relentless and successful.  The transaction process can be stressful at times and we didn’t know what to expect having never been through this before.  Jeff and ExitBig guided us through those anxieties calmly and professionally.   We are very happy we chose ExitBig for this project and I would strongly recommend them to anybody looking to sell their business in the future.

  • After the loss of my father in law the sale of his business seemed like something that would be emotionally overwhelming to everyone involved. However, it was critical that we get the sale done and at the top price so that my mother in law could continue the grieving process without having the hassle that is typically involved in selling a business. Having sold three businesses myself I was very concerned for her and what the process would be like. Jeff and his team came in and made some bold promises about their process and exceeded expectations at every turn. They got her more than I would have expected in a difficult market. They managed expectations and emotions perfectly. When negotiations became difficult in the middle of the purchase as they often do they provided great guidance to insure we didn’t lose a great buyer. Finally, they saw the sale through to its conclusion while being emotionally aware of what was happening for a family. If anyone is looking to buy or sell a business I would immediately recommend that they call Jeff and his team.

  • Deciding to sell our business was an emotional and overwhelming experience.  The folks at ExitBig explained everything step by step ahead of time and continued to walk us through the process along the way.  The ExitBig team gave us the peace of mind to transition the company to the new owners while they managed the details of the sale and made sure we were kept up to date on how things were progressing.  I would recommend their services to anyone who is considering selling their business and not sure where to start!

  • I was starting to explore acquiring a small manufacturing company in the Midwest region mid 2016 when I met the Exit Big founder Jeff Herdzina through a mutual acquaintance.  From day 1 I have found Jeff to be very knowledgeable, professional and responsive.  Jeff was working with another broker we had a listing that fit the scope of what I was looking for so we started to engage the business to see if there was a fit culturally, short story there was a fit and we were able to complete the deal in 2017.  What I can also tell you is without Jeff and Shanna, the deal would not have gotten completed, I come from a background that included numerous M&A activities and a lot of times you have to be creative and have mental agility to close deals, which the other side was lacking significantly but by the 2 of us working closely together we were able to move forward.
