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.

Posted by Cody Hoyt on

I recently worked with Ron to close an acquisition as a first-time buyer. Throughout the process, Ron was incredibly responsive and patient. His knowledge and experience were extremely valuable as we ran into challenges along the way and had to come up with new and innovative solutions on the spot. I would highly recommend working with Ron if you are considering buying or selling a business.

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.

A joy to do business with

Purchasing transportation business

Posted by Archangels Transit on

My wife and I recently bought a business that Ron represented as the seller's agent. Ron proved to be a true professional in his field. For the entire six-month due diligence and contract period, Ron was extremely helpful in getting any information needed for us in a timely fashion. He made himself available throughout all hours of the day and even on the weekends. He is definitely a very dedicated individual to ensure the best outcomes for both buyers and sellers. We were very pleased with how he handled the entire transaction from beginning to end and will definitely use him again in the future.

From the offering memorandum to the due diligence materials, Ron made the process a pleasure

Posted by Steve Wampold - Founder & Board Member at BigMouth Inc. on

I recently acquired a business where Ron Buck of Murphy Business Sales represented the seller. From the offering memorandum to the due diligence materials, Ron made the process a pleasure. He was always prompt, courteous and a true professional. He understood the business that he represented thoroughly having clearly done significant research before bringing the business to market. To Murphy Business sales credit, Ron identified me as a potential suitor for this business and reached out directly, and he did not just advertise the business like some business brokers do.
