Verified Businesses was first established in Feb 2010 by David Bentley, who was the founder of the Sunshine Coast’s largest business brokerage, which he started in 1997 and sold in 2008. After reassessing what could be done to improve the whole process of valuing, listing and selling businesses, a new and different approach has been implemented at Verified to ensure the whole process is as simple, straight forward and trouble free as possible. So often the process of buying a business is frustrated because of missing information required by the banks or the buyer’s accountant, during the ‘due diligence’ process. We endeavour to have everything at our finger tips, ready for all types of questions about the business.
We have the benefit of being able to draw on 14 years of accumulated experience to accurately value any business, big or small. We have sold everything from the 1 man cleaning business up to large multi million dollar businesses with profits over $500,000pa and employing numerous staff. We have a large database of potential buyers, one of which could be the ideal purchaser of your business. We have a very motivated team of enthusiastic brokers who can promise you the most professional of service. We are constantly refining our procedures and always looking for ways to improve our professionalism. We are members of the Australian Institute of Business Brokers, AIBB, and the Real Estate Institute of Qld, (REIQ) and regularly attend the continuing seminars and business brokering conferences, to ensure we are always up to date with all legislation, values and industry knowledge. The principal, David Bentley, was the REIQ Sunshine Coast Business Broker of the Year in 2000 and 2003.
We enjoy what we do and we do it well. We take pride in the many testimonials we receive from our appreciative clients. We strive for excellence through professionalism.
