Judge me by my results!
Rikki Glass, Public Drainage Systems
“Hi Richard, I would like to thank you for the professional way in which you assisted us with the sale of our business recently. Throughout the entire process you took the time to not only understand the details of our business but also understand our personal needs, which included if possible, the opportunity for us to stay in the business.
We were very grateful that from the outset you explained to us in layman language the entire sales process from the initial appraisal, marketing plan, to evaluating prospective buyers and the final sales and purchase agreement, and your regular updates of enquirers from prospective buyers was helpful as was your accessibility when required.
During the negotiation process we were very pleased with your thoroughness and how you worked to our best interest to not only ensure we received a fair price for the business but also found a buyer who wanted to keep us on in the business!!!
As a result of your support and listening to our needs, the outcome for all concerned could not have been better.”

“My wife and I just wanted to let your firm know that we were thrilled that Richard Jacobs was recommended to us by my brother in law. It probably was not an easy business for Richard to sell as I was virtually a “one man band show” for 45 years with only 1 part time subcontractor and an office girl who worked just 4-5 hours a week on my Accounts.
I was the worker, manager, financial planner and everything in between… and then COVID hit us all in 2020 which didn’t make it easy for people to buy my business. But how grateful we were to Richard for his patience and gentle guidance through the whole process. He advised us who were the ‘time waster, tyre kickers’ and those that put unrealistic conditions on the sale.
Then as I was losing heart a bit Richard found just the perfect buyer and I got the correct market value for my Business. What a true professional Richard is. I had no idea how to estimate its value yet Richard researched it thoroughly and read the market just right and got it spot on.
For anyone who wants a salesman who genuinely listens to you, allays your fears and anxieties, guides you with incredible patience and reassurance I cannot recommend Richard Jacobs of Barker Business Brokers enough. Richard will probably read this and feel embarrassed as he’s a humble guy but it’s true… well done Richard… you have helped me to now enjoy my Retirement years.”
