Karl Grasemann signature

Karl was persistent in his marketing efforts and stayed optimistic through the entire process, which gave me the confidence to push on. At the end of the day, Karl got the sale done and I am very appreciative. I would recommend Karl to any business owner looking to move on to the next chapter of their lives.

Karl worked with us extensively in the sale of our IT consulting business and was diligent, patient, and preserving through what was a lengthy and complex process. His knowledge of the M&A process, his extensive network of resources, and, above all, his absolute integrity are stellar and beyond reproach.

Stephen A. kuck

Thanks for you work on selling my business. Your banking connections really helped, allowing the buyer to find proper financing and seal the deal. We were able to sell for my asking price, and at a great multiple.

Owner | Healthcare Software Corp.

The sincerity, understanding and professionalism that you showed us were significant factors that I know eventually led to the sale of our business. Your compassion, sense of humor, and ability to transcend the obvious assisted us when were down, tempered us when perhaps we were a bit too excited, and capably always steering us in the right direction.

Anyone who has ever sold a home knows that an independent appraisal report had to be completed for the mortgage company to complete the sale. A business is many times more complex. The key to having a viable valuation performed on a business is to have it performed by an independent third-party valuation service.
