It was a pleasure working with Bill at Pacific Business Sales. He is a very knowledgeable, detail oriented and honest guy. What could have been a highly stressful process, was made easier with Bill’s experience and guidance through it all. I would highly recommend using Bill as your business broker, and have already recommended him to a number of friends.

In 2006, I was referred to Bill Grunau when I decided to sell my business. I am an accomplished businessman but knew nothing about selling my company. Bill made the process very understandable and my business was sold for full price within two weeks. In 2016, I again contacted Bill to request his assistance is selling my company. Using and trusting Bill’s methods, I had two offers to purchase my company within three months. Mr. Grunau offered advice and I decided the initial offers were not in the company’s best interested and were rejected. A short time later, a full price offer was accepted from a very compatible buyer and the business was sold.

Bill Grunau is an exceptional business broker and I would highly recommend him to anyone thinking about selling a business, big or small. Mr. Grunau is honest to both buyers and sellers. He would not jeopardize your interest for the goal of closing a sale. I consider Bill Grunau a friend and a very talented business broker.

Bill and his staff made it as easy as it could be selling a business. I was referred to him from another business owner that had used him in the past. He gave me some good advise on prepping my business to sell. We sold it a lot faster than I had anticipated. Bill and his staffed helped me through the potholes of selling a business, to a quick and semi painless escrow.

Even though I have purchased many businesses in the past, Bill was an extremely valuable resource in maneuvering the many challenges with this purchase and the SBA loan process.

I would highly recommend him to anyone and will definitely call him the next time I am considering another business purchase.

Thread Manufacturing-Distribution Business Buyer – Tony C

I met Bill on my third business transaction. I must say that working with him as a business broker has been such a pleasure. He really understands the process of buying a business and made it as smooth and pleasant as possible. Don’t get me wrong, transacting the sale of a business is tricky and things always come up, but Bill helped us avoid potential pitfalls and solve the different problems we were confronted with. He understands business, has a great mind, and is a fantastic business broker. I’ve referred a friend and will be using him again. Regardless of whether you’re a buyer or a seller, you will really enjoy working with him. He’s earned my highest recommendation.

Bill is nothing short of a true professional. We met after having been searching for a business for over a year and had come across many unscrupulous brokers who didn’t have our best interest in mind; and after almost losing hope we came across one of Bill’s listings and opened escrow within days. All the information was there. You could tell that he had done his homework on the business and he did not accept any unsupported information with questionable evidence to back it up. He is honest, knowledgeable and is always on the lookout for both sides – the buyer and the seller! Something that it is hard to find in the industry. I would recommend Bill to anyone who is serious about a business acquisition.

Pablo L. Buyer, Security Services & Staffing Company

I purchased a company in 2017.  Bill represented the seller in this transaction of a construction company.  Early in the process I read Bill’s Book “Own Your Future” and referred to it many times.  Before I even got to know Bill, I found the book to be critical in my understanding the process in every step.  The book was straightforward and assisted me in assurance that I was purchasing the business at the correct price.  I also used the analysis tools and guidelines for choosing the steps we would take in the process.  As a broker, Bill did an excellent job in keeping us on track and facilitated a very amicable interaction between myself and the seller.  He also assisted us in overcoming some tricky technical issues.  I would absolutely use Bill again, and highly recommend him.
