We will compile a comprehensive and accurate information pack that showcases your business in the very best light. The way in which the numbers are presented will have a huge impact on the price that you achieve for your business and by ensuring the numbers are accurate we will avoid problems later in the sale.

Setting an accurate guide price is essential in order to achieve the best price for your business. Our unrivalled experience will enable us to give you an accurate and achievable valuation. Unlike some of our competitors we will not give you an inflated value to win your business then reduce it later. We sell over 90% of our business for within plus or minus 10% of the original guide price.

Our database of over 12,000 qualified buyers built up over the last 30 years, means that we never need to advertise that your business is for sale. Many of these prospects will be buyers that you would not have found yourself. We will use our experience to grade these buyers in order to ensure that the best and most reliable buyers get the details first We will then send you a list for your approval.

You will retain the absolute right to veto who receives your business details and no-one will be sent details without your written consent in advance.

We will run a highly proactive marketing campaign over a six week period with a formal closing date for offers at the end of it. This ensures that all the potential buyers have a fair chance to make offers for your business. Bringing all the horses to the finishing line at the same time is essential in order to ensure that we achieve the very best price for your business and You will never be pressed to take an offer from the first buyer that comes along. At the end of the six week marketing campaign you will know that you achieved the best possible price for your business because of the transparency of the process that we used.

5-img

The best buyer isn’t necessarily the one who offers the highest price. We will help to negotiate all the other terms of the offer such as the payment terms and how much of the purchase price will be deferred. We will also use our experience to advise on the experience and track record of each of the buyers in order to ensure that you do not accept an offer from a buyer with a reputation for trying to reduce the price that they have agreed later in the process.

6-img

For every hour that we spend agreeing a sale we will spend several more hours progressing the sale once it has been agreed. Hundreds of things can go wrong with a sale. The most common problem is that buyers will often try to reduce the price that they have agreed to pay by claiming that they have found problems with the business during the due diligence process or by using sophisticated accounting tricks to try to cheat you out of money that should have been yours. Our job is to use our experience and technical knowledge to prevent this and to ensure that your sale completes on time and most importantly on the terms that were originally agreed.

Plus, once your sale completes, we’ll still be there to ensure the acquisition smoothly integrates into the buyer’s business and that any deferred consideration is paid to you in full.

What Our Clients Say

“Hi Adam,

Thank you so much your help throughout has been superb.

Best of luck with your future.

Many thanks,”

Andy Matin
Matin Capital Limited

“Our journey to completion of the sale of our business has been a long and sometimes fraught experience as we navigated the obstacles of talking to potential buyers, losing potential buyers and then landing on the right buyer! During this time, Julie Drake was professionalism personified! She guided us with a firm hand when needed and with sympathy and understanding where required. At all times, Julie was calm and level-headed, never became flustered or frustrated, calmly reassuring us at all times. We felt totally at ease with Julie all the way through the process and her positive persona throughout gave us total peace of mind. The fact our buyers felt the same demonstrates that Julie was consistent over the course of the sale. We were very fortunate in our choice of buyer,  but more fortunate to have had such a fantastic broker as Julie. We certainly could not have dealt with the sale on our own and  could not recommend her any higher to any would-be agency seller.”

Hugh & Gloria White
Whites Independent Lettings

“Having decided to retire after 44 years in my current business, I chose Adam J Walker and Associates to advise me and to carry out marketing discretely.  I have to say, I have been very happy with the service and assistance received from them in bringing the sale to a very satisfactory conclusion.”

Colin Ollive
SD Lambert in Upton

“Julie provided excellent service that I received before, during and after I put my business with Adam J Walker for sale. A number of potential buyers were quick to show interest and the asking price was achieved.
Even after the sale had gone through Adam J Walker remained "on hand" to help and advise me.

I can highly recommend them.”

Terry Rogers
Castle Estates Ltd

"Adam provided an excellent service from start to finish. During the initial stages he recommended a number of interested parties, all of which seemed very credible and after a series of meetings we were in a fortunate position of having several offers to consider. After we accepted an offer and began the legal work and due diligence, Adam provided invaluable advice and helped us overcome several obstacles in what can be a very stressful process. Throughout the sale I was continually impressed by Adam’s responsiveness and having now completed on the sale we are very grateful for the assistance that he provided. If you are looking to sell your letting/estate agency business, I would highly recommend speaking with Adam Walker."

Craig Wildy
Beresford Residential

"Adam was invaluable in working through the complexities of the sale, extremely professional and always available"

Luke Simpson
Aston Rowe Lettings

"Adam was brilliant. His detailed knowledge and experience was invaluable and his recommendation of a suitable solicitor was crucial. I’m not sure we would have got through the due diligence without the solicitor’s specialist knowledge."

Mike Dewhurst
Dewhurst Lettings

"Adam has been providing invaluable services to my business for over five years. Adam not only ensured we got the right value for our business but also stayed with me step-by-step throughout the duration and his expertise and advice was pivotal in securing the sale."

Steven Govier
London Residential

"Adam’s depth of knowledge in the sale of estate and letting agencies is well known in the industry. We weren’t disappointed. He was informative and responsive from the outset. His negotiation skills secured an excellent deal and he was on hand to deal with challenges and issues as they arose during the process ensuring a positive result."

Paul Connolly
Orchards of London

“It was a very quick sale. The buyers are the perfect fit to take over our lettings business and we achieved our anticipated price. The communication between all parties was expertly handled as was the sales progression and progress. Well done to all at Adam Walker.” 

Peter Large
Peter Large and Co

“Adam’s patience, kindliness, understanding, diplomacy, and good humour have left me astounded and I can recommend Adam Walker Associates unreservedly. Without their guidance I am extremely doubtful that my deal would have happened. I consider myself to be extremely fortunate to have worked with them.”

Timothy Buxton

“Adam and his team acted in a very professional and efficient manner throughout the entire process. Adam really knows his business inside out and certainly has the contacts and enormous respect throughout the industry. I cannot recommend Adam J Walker & Associates highly enough. Adam helped make the process run smoothly and was always on hand for valuable help and advice when needed!”

John Chase
First Union

“Professional and informative service from start to finish. Marketing and exposure was great, resulting in a some good offers from which we took our pick. Successful sale and a satisfied seller! There’s no business too big or small for the Adam J Walker team. Highly recommended!!”

Mitul Patel
Maritime Properties

“We used Adam J Walker to facilitate the sale of our family business. It’s a big decision and an emotional and stressful process at times, but Adam guided us through each step of it. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Adam if you have a lettings or estate agency to sell. In particular, we highly valued the care he took to listen to us and to understand the business we were selling - so that he could help find the most suitable buyer. He knows the market incredibly well and we felt in very safe hands.”

Emma Birt
Home & Abroad Rentals

“Excellent service throughout the sale process. From initial conversations with Adam and subsequent negotiations with Julie, all handled with absolute professionalism.”
