“Selling a company can be a daunting, complicated process that will have significant consequences if not transacted properly.

Their approach to insightful strategizing, intelligent marketing, and impactful problem solving added tremendous value.”
“Bob Contaldo and his staff are very professional and have an excellent formula for success. After making the commitment and Bob explaining the process, his team worked at a very high level to produce an overwhelming list of qualified potential buyers for our company. From start to close his team kept us on track and negotiated the best possible sale we could have imagined. Bob has the disposition and personality to make a complicated process move along smoothly and successfully. ”
