Here are some recommendations business sellers have been gracious enough to provide us over the years.
I originally tried to sell my business using a different business brokerage. After more than a year without even one interested buyer, I took the recommendation of my financial advisor and hired VR Business Sales. Within months, Bret McGowne had shown my business to two interested parties and both put in full-price offers! I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Bret McGowne or VR Business Sales.

We would recommend Jerry Myers at VR to anyone thinking of selling their business. We worked with another business broker for over two years trying to sell our business, and never received a single offer. Jerry had it sold in just over two months.

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, you can trust him completely.

Jerry helped us sell our towing service. It took a little over a year, but he kept bringing buyers to look at the business until one finally put in an offer acceptable to us. If you want someone to sell a business who will work hard and never give up, we would recommend Jerry.

Jerry at VR helped us sell our business and we would recommend him to anyone thinking of selling their business. We tried another broker, but he was unable to sell it. Jerry got it sold, and at full price, and handled all the details professionally and efficiently.

Jerry helped me sell an existing restaurant as my first franchised location. He was knowledgeable and professional and I would recommend his services to anyone thinking about selling their business.

Jerry Myers sold my plumbing company for nearly full price in the midst of a severe recession. I would recommend him to anyone thinking of selling their business.
- Jerry Kendall, Kendall Plumbing, Nixa, MO
I initially contacted VR about selling my business over a year ago. We discussed my situation and decided that by waiting a year we could better position my business for a higher price and an easier sale. After waiting a year, I started working with Jerry Myers and Bret McGowne at VR to market my business. In just 30 days we had a signed offer and less than 30 days after that we closed!
Throughout the process of taking my business to market and working with potential buyers, Jerry and Bret kept me in the loop and helped me navigate the process. I would recommend Jerry or Bret to anyone who wants to sell their business. They were honest, professional, and efficient.

Jerry helped us sell our franchise restaurant, Planet Sub, and we found him to be knowledgeable and capable. In addition, he never gave up on helping the buyers obtain their financing, even though at times it appeared impossible. We would recommend him to anyone thinking of selling a restaurant.

I would certainly recommend Jerry Myers at VR to anyone considering the sale of their business. Shortly after engaging VR to market my insurance agency, I received a full price offer from a young man experienced in the industry who wanted to have an agency of his own. Because of some particular details of the transaction, Jerry had to help the buyer work with 4 different lenders. Throughout the entire process, Jerry expertly guided the buyer through each new requirement from the lenders. Without him, I don't think we would have ever reached the closing table.

Jerry assisted us in selling our business, Springfield Pets Guide, in Springfield, Missouri. He had previously sold another business for us as well, a few years ago. If we have another business to sell in the future, we will not use anyone other than Jerry to help us sell it.

At a time when I needed to sell my business the most, Jerry Myers pulled out all the stops and never gave up until the day we closed on it. The only way to go.

We had decided to just close our retail store when we retired, but our accountant said we should contact Jerry Myers at VR Business Sales to see if he thought the business could be sold instead. Long story short, a few months later the store was sold and our retirement nest egg was a lot bigger than we thought it could be. We would certainly recommend Jerry to anyone considering a possible sale of their business.
- Larry and Ruby Clark, Roll N Tobacco, Springfield, MO
Jerry Myers helped me sell my service business and I would recommend him to anyone thinking of selling a business. I had worked with other brokers previously in selling the business and they just were not effective. Jerry got the job done, and at the full asking price! - Les Gardner, Absolute Glass, Springfield, MO
Jerry Myers helped us sell our business so we could retire. He worked hard, was very professional, and actually sold the business for more than the asking price. We would recommend him to anyone thinking of selling their business.

Jerry Myers at the VR Springfield-Branson office helped me sell my barber shop and the real estate it occupied. He told me he would sell it, reassured me anytime I expressed any doubts about the prospect of selling it, and sold it to a great young barber-to-be. I would definitely recommend his services to anyone wanting to sell their business.
