had been talking to Jerry Myers at VR about my interest in buying a business
for nearly 5 years when he finally found one that was a perfect fit for me and
my family. I had never bought a business
before, and he assisted me with all the details involved in buying a business
and all the forms and government numbers I had to get to be able to take over
and operate the business. During that
time I also talked to other business brokers in the area, but Jerry was
definitely the most knowledgeable and the most helpful in getting me to my goal
of business ownership. I would heartily
recommend him to anyone thinking of buying a business.

Owner, MBDR Foods, Marshfield, MO
I’m very happy to refer Jerry
Myers at VR to anyone thinking of buying a business. He helped me every step of the way in the
purchase of my insurance agency, and was especially helpful in guiding me
through the process of obtaining an SBA loan to fund the purchase. I found him very knowledgeable and
resourceful, and he never once expressed any doubt that we would ultimately
succeed in obtaining financing, despite experiencing setback after
setback. I could not be happier with the
assistance I received from him.
- Todd Laney, New Owner, Burly R. Jenkins Group, Springfield,
I had never bought or owned a
business before. When I met with Jerry and Bret at VR about this business I was
a bit nervous and apprehensive. We spent
almost an hour talking about buying a business in general and about buying this
business in particular. It seemed like a
good fit so we immediately took a tour of the facility and I got to ask the
seller questions over lunch. I made my
offer soon after that. I have to admit
that the whole process seemed to move very quickly from that point forward but
whenever I got anxious or had questions, Jerry or Bret were there to slow
things down and get me answers. I
appreciated the fact that they were knowledgeable, helpful, and that they
insisted I retain my own advisors (accountant and attorney). I would have no problem recommending Jerry or
Bret to anyone considering the purchase of a business.
- Kim Hutton, New Owner, Puzzle Place Learning Center, Nixa,
My wife and I were fortunate
enough to meet Jerry while we were buying our first business. As you can imagine, the whole process can be
a bit scary, exciting and overwhelming at times. Jerry was with us every step
of the way, answering questions and giving advice. We never felt rushed or pushed to make such a
huge decision. Not only is he extremely
knowledgeable about the process, but also very kind. We would highly recommend contacting Jerry
with any needs you have!
- Trey Broussard, New Owner, The Adventures of Learning, Nixa, MO
Jerry Myers was instrumental
in helping me acquire my first business. Although his official role was
representation of the seller, Jerry provided tremendous insight and external resources
which allowed me to navigate the process quickly. To date, the business
has exceeded my expectations, and Jerry continues to maintain contact
periodically even after the sale. I am already considering expansion and
vertical integration, and I'm confident Jerry will be serving an integral role
as I move forward.
- Robert Brooks, New Owner, Classic Services, Fair Grove, MO
I would absolutely recommend
Jerry Myers to anyone looking to buy or sell a business. It has been five years
since I purchased our service business with outstanding assistance from Jerry.
His guidance and recommendations have continued to bear fruit. I have worked
with numerous business advisers over the years and Jerry is by far the best I
have ever seen. He is very knowledgeable, his professionalism is top
notch, and you can trust him completely.
- Rich Hare, New Owner, Air Services,
I worked with Jerry over
about an 8 month period to find a business to acquire, and we found one that is
a good fit for me and which has great potential. Jerry is thoughtful and resourceful and I
would recommend him to anyone thinking of acquiring a business.

Jerry Myers worked with me
for over two years to find the specific type of business I wanted to

knowledge and integrity and resourcefulness necessary to help business buyers
meet their goals.

I worked with Jerry Myers in
purchasing my second business in Springfield, Tropical Smoothie Café. He informed me initially of the opportunity
and assisted me in obtaining financing for the purchase in a tough lending
climate. I would recommend him to anyone
interested in business ownership.

Smoothie Café, Springfield, MO
If you are buying or selling
a business I would highly recommend Jerry for the job. This was our first
business venture and Jerry went above and beyond to make sure all our questions
and concerns were addressed. Jerry is a very knowledgeable and trustworthy
individual with hard to find qualities. Jerry helped us every step of the way
even through post procurement. His level of service is undeniably remarkable
and I guarantee you will be happy with your acquisition.

I wish to recommend Jerry
Myers if you are looking at purchasing a business. He is extremely knowledgeable on all the
aspects of purchasing a business and does a great job explaining all the
different steps involved. I purchased
two different companies with his help and could not have done it without
him. He helped me every step of the way
and had other resources that could help in the legal and accounting areas. I would highly recommend doing business with
Jerry and feel like he has set my entrepreneurial spirit free.
