I’ve been evaluating an acquisition for a while now and dealt with many brokers. Ron is by far the most thorough and knowledgeable of the businesses he lists and extremely helpful in managing the relationship between buyer and seller. Highly recommend.

We had interacted and worked with many business brokers, and Ron Buck is by far the best!

Posted by Andrey Bayrashev, Bay Automotive on

We had interacted and worked with many business brokers, and Ron Buck is by far the best! His approach is calm, steady, to the point, very thoughtful, fair, and all around professional and solid, beginning with a very thorough business prospectus (by far the most thorough I have ever seen for a business), and ending with post-closing calls and beyond. There hasn’t been a question related to the transaction that Ron either couldn’t answer immediately or obtain the information promptly! Ron guided us through the whole business acquisition process and lined up a network of professionals (legal, financial, etc.) to help us along the way. All Ron’s connections were also very knowledgeable, value-added, and helped us tremendously during the transaction! We highly recommend Ron Buck and Murphy to anyone who is considering buying or selling a business!

Ron was instrumental in the recent sale of my business.

Posted by Mark Scott, Founder, Thermal Metal Treating on

Ron was instrumental in the recent sale of my business. His contribution in performing valuations, networking us with a financing option, and guiding us through the process right up to closing was the reason we had a successful outcome. He was the right person at the right time, and his professionalism, responsiveness, and steadfastness through the entire process is greatly appreciated.

We have been looking to buy a business for quite some time and have dealt with MANY brokers. We have to say, Ron has been the finest broker we have worked with far none. He is extremely knowledgeable, communicative, and his prospectus was the most thorough and detailed we’ve seen (and we’ve seen A LOT). Working with Ron was a joy and we would recommend Ron 100%

If you’ve never sold a business, you’d be amazed at how challenging and complex the process is.

Posted by Tim Koehler, President Owner at ReBath of the Triad/Triangle/Wilmington on

If you’ve never sold a business, you’d be amazed at how challenging and complex the process is. Ron Buck sold one of our businesses and he made the baffling understandable, the confusing clear, and the endless details seem easy. He is an excellent communicator and has the ability to get all parties involved on the same page. If you’re looking for a professional who is extremely knowledgeable and patient to guide you through the process with confidence, reduce the stress, and result in a successful sale, Ron is your man.

One of the most thorough seller information books I have ever received. It made reviewing the target much easier, and saved me time of not having to ask Q&A. Nice work Ron Buck!

Ron proved to be an invaluable resource when the time came to sell my business. Not only did he bring a wealth of financial acumen and negotiating experience to the table, but he also displayed creative problem solving that helped make our deal happen in a very compressed timeline.

Ron came highly recommended as a business broker and he did not disappoint! He presented 3 buyers and we chose the perfect match. Ron was very thorough in guiding us through the process and in the end we all got what we wanted. He offers good advice, and he handles the inevitable bumps in the road in a professional, transparent manner. He is very intelligent, well educated, resourceful, and a delightful person to spend time with.

We were looking for a team that had experience with middle market acquisitions

Posted by Mark Edelman and Ken McMullen, Co-Owners, Mark-Air, Inc. on

We were looking for a team that had experience with middle market acquisitions. Our Wells Fargo Wealth Advisor referred us to Ron Buck and Tully Ryan with Murphy Business Sales, and we got exactly what we were looking for. Ron, Tully, and the entire Murphy team not only met, but far surpassed our expectations. We were extremely satisfied with their expertise, thoroughness, and level-headed navigation through the inevitable noise of the transaction. Not to mention the price, terms, strength of the buyer, and the time it took to complete the transaction. We really appreciate all that they did for us, from initial engagement to closing (and even post-closing), and would highly recommend them to other owners interested in selling their business.

Ron and his team puts together for a potential purchaser of the business

Posted by Wayne Sellers on

My comment here is in reference to the professional package that Ron and his team put together for a potential purchaser of the business. The reason for getting the price sometimes you are trying to get for your business is justified with a clear and concise, but detailed report of the key legal, financial and human resources along with the picture of profits. This is included in the ones that Murphy Business & Financial Carolinas presents to its potential purchasers, I’m very impressed.

When we decided to sell our business through a broker

Posted by Janet and Scott Cameron, Owners, Mechanical & Maintenance Supply Company on

When we decided to sell our business through a broker, we consulted our BB&T wealth management group and another broker, who was in the process of selling our son’s dental practices. Within a few days, they both called to recommend Ron Buck, with Murphy Business.   It was very reassuring to have two trusted groups of professionals come up with the very same name.

Ron took the time to familiarize himself with our specific industry and was able to provide us with a great slate of potential buyers.  In his true professional manner, he guided us through every step of the process from the listing worksheet to the last-minute details at closing.  He is well versed in all aspects of selling, from the legal and financial to real estate.  Being the true gentleman he is, he worked extremely well with our accountant and our attorney.

Ron attended to every detail with great insight and anticipated any and all obstacles.  He made himself available even on weekends and nights, which proved invaluable with our busy work schedules.  He exceeded all of our expectations and without hesitation or any reservation, we would highly recommend Ron Buck.

Ron produces a top notch offering memorandum

Posted by Tony Butler - Senior Managing Director, Co-Head of Securitization at RAIT Financial Trust on

Ron produces a top-notch offering memorandum. I've been looking at small businesses to buy for over a year and I've not seen a better or more thorough write-up than the one I recently read from Ron. It addresses multiple levels of questions before having the first call or site visit; it will serve and save time for all parties involved.

Attention to detail and thoroughness

Posted by Matt Bailey - Director at Venture South Piedmont on

Ron's attention to detail and thoroughness in prepping a business for sale benefits both sides of the transaction. Acquirers have confidence that the data is accurate and complete and the seller is ready to sell; sellers see their businesses presented professionally and thoroughly which attracts multiple offers. Ron really sets the standard for business brokers and advisors in the Triad.

As a buyer, we have really appreciated the depth and thoroughness of his work

Posted by Malay Shah - Director at VentureSouth Piedmont on

Selling a business can be daunting for anyone. Ron has been fantastic in preparing owners both for the financial and emotional components of transitioning to new ownership. As a buyer, we have really appreciated the depth and thoroughness with which Ron works with sellers to provide a full and fair profile of their companies. It's a lot of work, but in the end, it benefits both the buyer and the seller.
