Bill Grunau of Pacific Business Sales is one of the good ones. The expertise, guidance and finally friendship Bill brought to the transaction was top notch. Without his help we never could have gotten the deal closed. It took less than 2 months to close one the best Bakeries in Southern California. He was able to guide and coach us through all aspect of the purchase. We look forward to working with Bill again soon on our next Bakery Purchase. We would highly recommend Bill and Pacific Business Sales for anyone looking for representation on the buy or sell side of a business sale.
Beverly’s Bakery thanks Bill and Pacific Sales.

Buyer & New Owner of The Massage Therapy Center
We engaged with Bill Grunau at Pacific Business Sales to list and sell our business and within a relatively short period of time, Bill had lined up three solid offers. We were able to choose from three qualified buyers and ended up with one who was the perfect fit for the business. From start to finish, Bill was a consummate professional. Selling a business is always stressful, and Bill’s experience, guidance, responsiveness and calm demeanor were a huge help in seeing the transaction through to the end. If you are considering selling a business on your own or hiring a business broker I highly recommend that you talk with Bill.

Dave and Linda Amundsen, Sellers/Owners Amundsen & Associates
Summary: Bookkeeping and Accounting practices sold by Orange County Business Brokers Pacific Business Sales representing the Seller/owner. The company was acquired by another accounting firm.
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 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.

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.
