I would like to express our appreciation for the professionalism and diligence that Gary and Carolyn Stansberry exemplified during the negotiation, due diligence and transaction process of the recent sale of Celebration. They brought a level of knowledge and expertise to the transaction that exceed expectations.
The Stansberry Firm led the charge with the sale of our company, and we couldn’t be more grateful. Their expertise, forward thinking and pursuit of our best interest won our trust immediately, and in the end, executed a sale that met our highest expectations.
Words cannot describe how impressed I am with Gary and Carolyn’s grasp on this industry; the sale process; the methods to valuation; and above all how to facilitate effective conversation with potential buyers. Had I tried to sell this business myself, I am certain I would have netted much less, let alone the fact it would not be sold yet.
I am very pleased with The Stansberry Firm’s efforts in our recent sale of Florida Contractor Rentals. From day one, it was obvious they knew what they were doing as they outlined the process and went right to work.
"I was very impressed with The Stansberry Firm's expertise, knowledge and contacts; they know the rental industry and they know the oilfield. They quickly brought several serious and qualified buyers to the table. Gary and Carolyn are true professionals and I hope to work with them again in the future."
