We can't thank and talk highly enough of Rod Russell and Savvy Business Sales. We thought selling our business was going to be a hard drawn out process, boy were we wrong. Rod told us he had buyers on his books looking to buy and we naturally thought yeah sure you do, don't sales people say anything to get your listing? Well when Rod say's he has buyers, "HE HAS BUYERS". We had 3 FULL PRICE CASH OFFERS IN 24 HOURS.... WOW and still there were more offers coming in. Rod expertly guided us through this very overwelming time. Instead of saying here take this one sign here just to get his commison, what he did next astounded us. Over the next 4 days Rod worked with these buyers and on the 5th day ROD PRESENTRED US WITH A CONTRACT THAT WAS 33% HIGHER THAN OUR LIST PRICE" - we couldn't belive it. Amazing. 33% increase in our sale price meant Hundreds of Thousands of Dollars extra in our pocket. From there until our business settled 3 weeks later, Rod keep us in the loop and also negotiated a fantastic price for our plant and equipment with the new owners. If you want, need or have to sell your business and you don't get Rod and the Savvy Team to sell it for you, you will leave money on the table. Maybe even Hundreds of Thousand. Call Rod, you deserve the best and Rod is the best. You will be so glad you did.

We had an excellent experience buying through Savvy Business Sales. We were kept well informed throughout the whole process. In the end what we went through was quite extraordinary as our initial attempt to purchase coincided with Covid restrictions coming in to play. Rod was very professional in his approach throughout and helped guide us through the next steps with the end result being that we were able to still go ahead with the business purchase even in the midst of a worldwide pandemic. Pretty remarkable given the state of play at the time. We never felt pushed or rushed throughout the process and would highly recommend the team at Savvy for your business purchase/sale.

Lachlan and myself have continuously worked alongside each other to assist mutual clients with the finance and purchase of businesses & assets. Lachlan has recently assisted a long term BOQ customer that I referred, with an extremely stress-free and streamlined purchase. Lachlan was very professional with assisting our mutual client and ensured both myself and the customer were kept up to date at each stage of the purchase. Lachlan has been such a great business broker in the local region and I couldn't recommend him highly enough! His approach to any customers expectation is to go above and beyond and I have never had a referral customer give negative feedback. Thanks again for working so hard to make a deal for our mutual clients!

Rod and the team sold my business within 1 hour by making 2 phone calls. Minimal negotiation and received the money that I was asking. His knowledge of selling a business goes along way, even to the extent of helping out my accountant. My accountant even admitted that Rod taught him a few things not that that surprises me because Rod has been selling business for approx 20 odd years. The new buyers have even told me how Rod has massaged them through the whole process as well. Highly recommended. Thanks so much Rod.

Rod, thank you for assisting us with the recent sale of our compliance business.  It was a great experience when we purchased the business through you 4 years ago, so it was an easy decision to engage you to sell it for us, so we could retire. Your guidance, professional approach and years of industry experience enabled us to achieve the result we were looking for.  You kept us fully informed throughout the whole process and ensured a smooth and stress free transaction.  Thanks also to your professional administration team who were delightful to deal with.  If you are considering selling your business, we thoroughly recommend Rod at Savvy Business Sales.

We engaged Rod Russell at Savvy Business Sales to sell our business and we were delighted that we did. Rod made the selling process easy and made us feel comfortable from the start. Rod’s wide range of business experience came to the fore and was able to bring a number of different types of buyers to us, but without creating a burden on our time. He has excellent communication skills and is admirable at ensuring that all parties are happy. He was willing to go that bit further to help us where we needed and was patient given the longer than normal settlement period due to the buyers being overseas. We are thrilled with the outcome and would highly recommend any other sellers to use Rod at Savvy Business Sales.
