Reviews From Owners Like You

Marsh Creek were the ultimate professionals when it came to setting our business up to sell. Selling a business is a more in depth than I could imagine, and they were there to answer the easy questions, but more importantly to tackle the tough questions. We hit some bumpy roads during this transaction, but his expertise was a major factor in closing this deal. I would highly recommend Marsh Creek if you are looking to sell your business!

Atlanta Recycling Solutions

Marsh Creek were true professionals. They guided us through every step of the sale of Independence Fire and made sure we understood all of the diligence before and during the process. I trust Marsh Creek and I have already recommended friends and associates to them. Thank you

Kevin West

I would highly recommend Marsh Creek to any business owner interested in selling their business. Through diligent hard work and marketing savvy they successfully helped me sell my business in a professional, step by step process that proceeded steadily to completion. Marsh Creek's attention to detail, easy availability, and pleasant disposition made a complex transaction much less stressful than it could have been. I would definitely use them again.

Will Bruning

I was pretty concerned about the process of selling my business. I knew I only had one shot to get it right and my financial planner had told me the number I needed to retire at my current lifestyle. The team at Marsh Creek was incredible in guiding me through the process and even explained some of the more complex concepts multiple times for me along the way. They also put together a rockstar team of M&A attorneys and accountants that really earned their money during the closing negotiations. I didn’t know how important the broker team was until the negotiations got real at the last minute, and then I quickly recognized that I had made the right choice. If you need an M&A team to help you successfully exit on terms that meet your needs, then you should choose the team at Marsh Creek. I would highly recommend them.
