Testimonials

I recently sold my business and The NYBB Group’s assistance with the sale was invaluable. After spending 28 years as the second generation owner of a 38 year old family business, the decision to sell was a difficult one and I needed a brokerage that was sensitive to the complicated issues of selling a family business. I found that in NYBB.

Prior to going to market, Kyle, Anthony, and Karen took the time to get to know me. They understood my motivation for selling the business and the desired outcomes. I believe this helped them balance the transactional and emotional aspects of the sale and offer the appropriate support. They were also able to set realistic expectations in valuation and timing, put together a comprehensive promotional profile, and worked with me to decide the right time to bring the business to market.

Once listed, NYBB offered guidance on which offers to seriously consider. As parties showed their interest, Kyle would field the offers, passing along those that fit my parameters. He made sure to convey to prospective purchasers the importance of continuity for my employees and clients, many of which I have worked with for over 20 years. Once an offer was accepted, NYBB was an integral part of the process and skillfully assisted in negotiations. They kept both sides on track and knew when to help to smooth out issues and more importantly when to stay silent.

Kyle, Anthony and Karen were available at a moment’s notice throughout the entire process. It was comforting to know that I always had someone to answer all of the questions and handle the myriad of issues that arose throughout the process. I believe that their responsiveness helped bring the deal to fruition.

I am grateful for their dedication, efficiency, and professionalism and I would strongly recommend The NYBB Group to anyone entering into the M&A process.

Thank you very much for you finding and securing our purchase of the company we acquired in January 2017. Your due diligence on our behalf was very professional, thorough and accurate. Your negotiations with the prospective seller secured us the best deal possible. You matched both company's visions and objectives and the acquisition has been a profitable one for Lane. We look forward to doing work with you in the near future.

Anthony Citrolo worked diligently throughout the pandemic to assist us in the selling of our business, Groner Service Inc. We were pleased with him and his work ethics to get the sale and transaction done regardless of the business climate due to the virus. In spite of the Covid 19 looming over, The NYBB Group delivered.

I just wanted to thank you for your help with our purchase. This acquisition has taken our business to new heights. It could not have happened without all of the energy and expertise you brought to the table. You meticulously worked with the seller and me to get it done. Both the seller and I agree that you were the catalyst in making this happen. Thank you.

Mitchell Newman
Corporate Buyer

They did a top notch job of successfully finding us a qualified buyer for our C Corporation. Anthony was always available by phone or email as we worked our way through the process. What impressed me most was his commitment to finding us a good match - he was totally understanding when we pulled the plug on one potential buyer that we did not feel would do well by the corporation's clients.

I just wanted to thank you for the services that you provided in my purchase of Henry's Automotive Warehouse. From my initial request, I was impressed with your professionalism, demeanor, and level of detail that you provided about the company that you were representing. Over the years, I've researched and purchased several businesses, but I've never had a broker supply upfront the amount and quality of information that you did. It was refreshing to have already the most common questions answered to make the best use of our time. I greatly appreciated your timely response to questions as they arose during the due diligence process and your ability to quickly gather even more detailed information on the business. Post initial offer acceptance, I think the deal may not have materialized if not for your coordination and mediation. For each issue that arose, you were able to help each party understand the other party's perspective and come to a reasonable agreement. For that I thank you as I truly felt that this transaction was a great fit for both parties.

I look forward to working with you again on a future acquisition.

From the initial consultation, The NYBB Group's professionalism, integrity, and caring were truly outstanding. They guided me through the business valuation process, marketing, qualifying, finding the right buyer, and negotiations. I was finally able to sell my Physical Therapy practice.

A belated thank you for your professionalism, expertise, and good counsel in navigating the sale of our mutual client’s business at a very favorable price. You were discreet, proficient in your marketing, sensitive to our client’s concerns and thorough in your vetting procedures, all well done without even a hint of attitude or ego. I will have no hesitation in recommending your services to anyone. The best proof of that is that I have already done so, in a situation in which I had an equity interest. I look forward to working with you again.

What I liked most about working with The NYBB Group was their commitment to providing excellent service throughout every step of the process. Anthony Citrolo and the team always kept me abreast of what was happening with the transaction and spent as much time as necessary with me to ensure I clearly understood what the next steps were. They handled all aspects of the transaction in a courteous manner; from our initial conversations, all the way through the final closing. Thank you for doing such a great job in assisting me in my recent business acquisition.

I have had the pleasure of working with Tony Citrolo and Tony Calvacca on two separate transactions, one as the seller’s attorney and one as the buyer’s attorney. As an attorney who during a 10-year career worked on the sale/purchase of more than 100 businesses, I am proud to state that both Tony Citrolo and Tony Calvacca have impressed me with their utmost professionalism, knowledge, and prompt service.

I am thankful to The NYBB Group for their perseverance and diligence in assisting us with the sale of our Franchise Business. The hands-on assistance with the Buyer’s franchise approval process was invaluable in expediting the sale. Due to their thorough screening of all potential buyers, time was not wasted on unqualified prospects. Without the hard work of The NYB Group, this would not have been possible.

The decision to sell my physical therapy practice was difficult because change is stressful, but the timing could not have been better. Luis de la Prida guided me through the entire process and made the sale possible with terms that I was happy with. Luis helped me to prepare my business for sale which increased the businesses value to buyers. Thank you, Luis, for making my business your business and making my dream possible.

I wanted to thank you and your staff for your professional assistance in the sale and transfer of my two Cold Stone Creameries. As a business owner I was anxious about the sale of my businesses but you professionally guided me through the process. You handled them with a clear focus of the final outcome. The conclusion was a successful sale of both entities.

Matt Dierberg

I was very pleased with the fact that (The NYBB Group) kept the sale confidential while at the same time brought me many qualified buyers. Additionally, I was especially happy with the high level of personal service (they) provided, and that (they) were in constant contact with me during the entire process. I would highly recommend (The NYBB Group) to any business owner looking for a first rate business broker.

Abe Stuck

Jack and I wanted to express our thanks for (The NYBB Group’s) intensive efforts marketing our business. We really appreciate the skill (they) demonstrated in compiling all of our financial data into a coherent report that buyers and their advisors could easily understand. Jack and I were extremely satisfied and particularly impressed at (their) ability to structure the deal, negotiate the terms and quickly have all parties come to an agreed upon contract for sale. I would definitely recommend anyone seeking a quality broker to handle their sale to contact New York Business Brokerage

Lynda Dexter & Jack Lebright

I was referred to (The NYBB Group) by a business associate. Kyle Griffith and Tony Citrolo helped me to define a realistic selling price. A marketing strategy was outlined and then (they) had me complete an in-depth questionnaire which defined my business. This questionnaire (they) designed was essentially my sales pitch for the business. It was obvious that the more details I provided, the better you could convey our value to the prospects. Thank you for all your help, I’m not sure we could have accomplished the same results without all your assistance.

After communicating with other brokers, I decided to use Luis de la Prida to represent me in the sale of my Licensed Home Care Agency.
