"I am pleased with the multiple obtained ... the integrity and reliability of TBB and its Principals"

I really didn't have much idea about the sales process involved with my trail book.

James Turk from Trail Book Buyers (TBB) was extremely helpful and facilitated the sale in a very efficient and professional manner.

 

James kept me informed along the way and I felt very comfortable with the process. He introduced me to the buyer and we negotiated an arrangement in connection with the future servicing of the client base.

 

I am pleased with the multiple obtained but apart from price, the integrity and reliability of TBB and its Principals are the key factors that any seller or purchaser should be focussing on.

 

Trail books are valuable assets and any dealings with such assets must be handled by experienced professionals that one can trust - TBB is definitely the firm to trust - it possesses the experience and expertise that a seller or buyer can take considerable comfort.

 

I am pleased to strongly recommend Trail Book Buyers to a prospective buyer or seller of trail books.

"The transaction concluded was smooth and seamless and timeously executed within the pre indicated timeframe expectations."

Trail Book Buyers are an organisation that I could recommend to a broker or planner wishing to buy or sell a trail book.

 

Their versatility and various options that are available to a potential buyer or seller are varied as contained and illustrated in their website, provides a business owner / operator the flexibility to expand cash flow or recapitalise their business depending on their needs or circumstances at the time with the added feature and benefit of a guaranteed buyback after a minimum period thereby facilitating future expansion and business growth objectives.

 

There was the added benefit of them purchasing the book if a suitable buyer was not forthcoming ? this as far as I am aware is fairly unique in the marketplace of buying and selling planner and broker books.

The transaction concluded was smooth and seamless and timeously executed within the pre indicated timeframe expectations.

 

Constant almost daily communication between the parties added to their individual and collective professionalism as a company as well.

"Trail Book buyers were very helpful and there assistance made the transaction very easy."

I was very skeptical about buying another trail book from anyone again after a really bad experience with a trail book broker who basically was basically a con man.

 

However, James from Trail Book buyers was very helpful and allowed me to arrange all payments directly with the Vendor following full due diligence being carried out on the trail book being purchased. Trail Book buyers were very helpful and there assistance made the transaction very easy. We have now settled and have been are receiving full payments of the trails.

 

I have no problem in recommending them to other brokers that are interested in growing their business by buying loan books.
