A letter from the principal.
In 2003 I decided to sell my maintenance business. I had seven employees, was turning over good money and the profits were great, so I didn’t think it would be particularly difficult to find a buyer for it. Having never sold a business before, I contacted and arranged a number of appointments with several brokers, and after choosing a broker that I felt would do a good job for me, got back to work, leaving the selling to the broker.
Three months later, after only a handful of enquiries, no offers and no hope for any offers to come in the future I was becoming increasingly frustrated with the lack of response. I couldn’t understand why a good business like my own would have any problems selling.
Having extensive experience in sales, and having marketed my business from the ground up, the decision was made to sell the business myself. Besides, who would know more about my business than I?
I started by establishing what it was that buyers would want to know about my business and where to find those buyers. I bought a dozen business sales books, talked to as many people as I could and within no time I’d developed a sales and marketing approach designed specifically to sell my business. Back on the market it went.
Four Weeks and 30 enquiries later, I had four offers on the table. Four weeks after that, I sold my business for the exact price that I’d wanted. This got me to thinking. What did I do, that the other brokers hadn’t? The answer was this. I structured the Presentation of the business in such as way so that buyers could understand my business and the risks associated. This gave them enough information to make an informed purchasing decision without the fear of losing the shirt off their back. I focussed the marketing campaign, not only on potential interested parties, but also on other business owners who could potentially grow their business by purchasing my own. By using commonsense and a tailored approach, I was able to get the results that I’d wanted, within the time that I’d wanted.
Realising that I was onto something new and unique, I started my own business broking agency; And so, Xcllusive was born…
Seven years on, our approach honed and improved, the success stories of our clients keep rolling in. This is because each member of the Xcllusive team hold true to maintaining a Personal and Tailored Approach. For every business we sell, we learn all we can about it, devise an appropriate marketing strategy, and sell it with the same drive and passion as we would, were it our own. That’s what makes us a business broker agency unlike any other.
It’s what WE DO, and others DON’T that sets us apart.

WHEN YOU WORK WITH XCLLUSIVE BUSINESS BROKERS:
“I can honestly say, as a person who has now sold three businesses in the past 8 years, Xcllusive is far and away the most honest and intuitive brokers that I have had the pleasure of dealing with. Their service is second to none in the industry, their prospective buyers are real and I would highly recommend their services and expertise to any other business vendors who are looking to sell their businesses successfully.”
“My business was a supplier and manufacturer of quality metal products and because of a limited market, we were finding it extremely difficult to promote & sell. In a very short time, after engaging Xcllusive, they put together a comprehensive information package and in a relatively short time we had an offer on the business which was accepted. Tomaz, Dennis and your team were always courteous and helpful in our dealings with you and now our business is sold we are very satisfied with the outcome. Many thanks!”
“I can highly recommend Xcllusive Business Sales if anyone is considering selling their business as not only did they source a buyer for my business but they were highly professional in their appraisal of the business, interaction with the potential buyers & were very discreet in the sales process. I achieved a very good result with Xcllusive Business Sales in an industry which is not easy to sell a business.”
“Finding a business broker we could trust to sell our business was very important to us and so we were very happy we found that in Xcllusive. They took the time to understand our business which in turn helped us find the right buyer in such a short timeframe. They delivered on their promises and have no hesitation recommending their services to other business owners we know. Thank you.”
“I listed a relatively small mortgage broking trail book with Xcllusive to sell. It was important the book was sold for the right price and to the right person so the clients were well cared for after the sale. Within days he identified the perfect purchaser from numerous applicants with the sale settling smoothly and quickly. Mark’s honest and open communication during the mediation process kept the sale on track and gave everyone confidence that settlement could be achieved withal expectations satisfied. I feel very comfortable in recommending Xcllusive.”
“We originally tried to sell our wholesale electrical business ourselves and found it a stressful and frustrating experience. After spending much time and effort to no avail, Xcllusive came to our rescue and with their calm and strong negotiating skills, managed to successfully sell it for us. Xcllusive gave us excellent service and feedback throughout the campaign and expended an enormous amount of time and energy in securing the sale of our company. I have no hesitation recommending them.”
