To Owners Considering Exiting their Businesses: Selling your Business? As business owners, this was a question we thought about and in the long run we were all but sure this was a path on which we would embark. Well what next? Go at it alone or work with a business broker? First try… we had an offer on our business and tried to proceed without a broker; but after a business valuation and many back and forth discussions with the potential buyer it become evidently clear that it would be very difficult to be able to run the business and successfully negotiate a solid, fair and complete sale transition.
So what next? Find a Business Broker? This as it turns out was not easy work. Why? We met with several business brokers and many seem to be eager to help with our process; but unfortunately, we just didn’t get the level of professional, knowledgeable and timely responses we expect.
So now what? We didn’t stop. We looked again and we found – Jeff Adam of ADAM NOBLE GROUP, LLC. From the very first communications, we knew we found a person and company that was quick to respond to us; our requests, our questions and creative ideas….
Jeff Adam guided us from the Business Valuation, the process and everything that goes with the sale. He was thoughtful and understanding and gave us excellent guidance on all aspects of the process. His honesty and integrity were present during the entire exit planning process as he represented our interests. Jeff kept all parties calm and on track during our complicated sale. The final business sale was a mutual success for all parties. He put the biggest check of our lives in our pocket !
Jeff continues to keep contact to ensure everything is completed to everyone’s satisfaction. We can honestly say that everyone is very happy with the transition and know that we are all better positioned with the excellent guidance and support of Jeff Adam.
We highly recommend the services of Jeff Adam of ADAM NOBLE GROUP, LLC. A professional business broker with personal passion and a constant concern for his customers to meet their goals.
Dennis and Charmaine Dehn, Dehn’s Innovations LLC

Jeff and his team are the most professional group of people I have ever worked with in my 30 plus years in business. Jeff was initially referred to us by another business broker who felt he could not adequately represent us due to the large size of my company including operations in 30 states. His initial requests covered a variety of items including P&L statements, Tax returns, key management personnel, day to day operations and customer base & longevity. Jeff and his team were very thorough & I would recommend Adam Noble Group to anyone contemplating buying or selling a business. Paul K. Proctor, Music Ts, Inc. (a Southwest Specialty Company)

We highly recommend the Adam Noble Group to anyone thinking of selling their business! Our experience was that Jeff was very proactive in getting the job done with honesty and integrity. He personally catered to our needs in every way and was always considerate of our time. He answered every question we had in terms that we could understand. The entire process was handled discreetly and confidentially! We were amazed at how quickly qualified buyers began to meet with us. We had a full-price offer that we accepted within a 3 week period! Adam Noble Group made the sale of our business smooth and painless. You guys really are the best! We appreciate all you did for us. Thanks Jeff! Tom and Christine Oxley, Active Impressions, Screen Printing Manufacturer

Your company was highly recommended to me. Jeff Adam met with my wife and me and described all the steps from business valuation to marketing to sale to closing and to after-sale transition. Over 26 years, I had grown my company to be one of the biggest garage door and gutter manufacturing companies in Texas. With over 50 employees, I was very concerned about confidentiality and finding the right buyer for the business. We began with a business valuation and I was astonished at the value of my company.
Jeff quickly presented many qualified candidates and we sold our business to an excellent company. The sale happened 2 months earlier than expected. As Jeff promised, he put the BIGGEST CHECK OF MY LIFE in my pocket. Coronavirus did not slow us down ! Jeff personally followed up with both the buyer and me, regularly during the transition to make sure that everything went well. He was always available, from start to now. I strongly recommend the Adam Noble Group to anyone considering buying or selling a business.

Several years ago, we decided to sell our 50-year-old manufacturing business. After several frustrating experiences trying to sell the business ourselves and dealing with different brokers, we hired Adam Noble Group to sell our business. They knowledgeably evaluated our firm and outlined the process to professionally prepare our business for sale. Each step was explained and the entire process was handled confidentially. We followed their recommendations to the letter! Twenty-one days later, we accepted an offer at full price! If you want to confidentially and professionally sell your business, call Jeff. We strongly recommend his firm! George K. Towles, Jr, President, American Foam Rubber Products Corp

Having never been involved in the sale of a business I had no idea what to expect. Being an employee also brought additional worries about new owners and job security. Jeff assured us that he would find a great new owner, which he did. He promised to be there at every stage in the process, which he was. He answered calls at all times, even from the roof of his house, (I’m not kidding) and continues to do so. He is honest and can find the humor in any situation. Those laughs are very important! Jeff has become a friend as well as a trusted business associate. If ever involved in another sale I would hope that Jeff and his team are also. It was easy because you do such a GREAT job!! Susan Whipkey, Office Manager, JBC Steel Products

Chris and I want to sincerely thank you for your dedication and support during the sale of our business. While we are experts in our field, selling a business was so much more involved than we initially realized. There are so many factors to consider from pricing and creating a profile to dealing with potential buyers; you are an expert in all those things. From our first call you reassured us that you would and could meet our goal and our timeline and you successfully did everything you promised in four short months.
Every step of the way the process was explained and we liked the personal service that we could contact you anytime we had a question or concern. We are so thankful to have made the right decision selecting the Adam Noble Group. We can honestly say we could not be more pleased with the outcome! We strongly recommend the Adam Noble Group to any business looking to sell and let Jeff Adam do his job!
Sincerely, Dianna & Chris Hale, Owners, Long Term Care Consulting & Cost Report Preparation

It was a pleasure working with Jeff on the sale of my business. He showed a high degree of professionalism through the entire process with great communication. Anytime I had a question or concern he immediately addressed it regardless of where he was at even in the middle of a hurricane.
My degree of satisfaction with Jeff personally exceeded my highest expectations as he mentored me throughout the sales process. His coaching was extremely helpful as he brought potential buyers sooner then I was expecting.
I always felt he took a great personal interest in me and my family and was careful to make sure I was ok with the direction and terms of the sale. I have appreciated his follow up as transition was being made with new ownership and potential issues addressed in a discreet manner.
I would certainly recommend Jeff to other business owners who were considering their potential sale.
Sincerely, Keith Short, President, Asset Retrieval & Investigations

Thank you for all your hard work on completing the sale of our business. You exceeded all of our expectations. I couldn’t believe how fast you sold it. I expected it to take years and you did it in months. You were fast at everything, returning calls and emails to answer any questions or concerns. I was surprised you gave up your nights and weekend to help with the sales process. You were honest and explained everything throughout this process. You had buyers lined up in 2 days to start the process. You sold our business for more money than I ever expected. I can’t thank-you enough. I will recommend you to anyone buying or selling a business. David Chamblee, President, Blue Ribbon Rain Gutter

Jeff made the experience of selling our oil and gas services company the most smooth and simple process possible. The valuation process was very valuable and helped us understand the value of our company. Jeff took the time to explain to us the entire acquisition process and what to expect throughout each step. He even went through the emotions we may experience and helped us really take a good look and weigh all the options we had including to sell or not to sell. Once we decided to move forward with the sell, he found well-qualified buyers within a couple of weeks. He was always available to answer all our questions and did so in a timely fashion including weekends, nights, even when he was on vacation. Jeff had integrity and honesty that made us feel very comfortable and taken care of. He not only became our broker, but our friend. I highly recommend the Adam Noble Group and will use them again in the sale of our next business!! Jo Beth Southard, Halo Coatings, LLC

Jeff and his team are well organized and very good at following up with all parties to ensure timelines were met. During the entire process he handled everything professionally, discreetly, and confidentially for all parties, which I really appreciated as there is tons of personal information that all parties are supplying to get the deal done. Looking back at the entire process, from the first time that I reached out to Jeff and his team about the opportunity to closing on the business, Jeff and his team were honest about everything and provided a high level of service.
I would highly recommend Jeff Adam and Adam Noble Group, LLC for others that are looking to sell or acquire a business. I will be using him again for more business acquisitions in the future.
Matt Guidotti, Guido Holdings, LLC

Jeff Adam and his staff did a great job for me regarding the sale of Railhead Smokehouse. After 11 years I decided to sell and could not be more pleased. From the valuation of the business all the way thru to post-sale follow up, everything was spot on. I had no idea there were so many details to this type of sale and Jeff handled it all. Very discreet, honest, confidential, timely and professional. I highly recommend Jeff Adam and his company. Burt Parnell, Railhead Smokehouse

Having probably met all of the brokers in DFW, there was no doubt in my mind that you were the best man for the job of preparing and selling my manufacturing business. You were referred and they were right! Thank you for an outstanding job selling my business for top $$! Andy Doan, President, Plastics Product Manufacturing

My business expectations were not only met, but exceeded by using Jeff Adam and his team to acquire a business. Even though I was the purchaser of the company that Jeff was representing to sell, he went above and beyond to ensure that I was informed throughout the entire process, provided clear and timely information, and even helped me through my process of acquiring the business as this was the first business that I have acquired.

Jeff was extremely professional throughout the sales process. Jeff handled the entire sale of my business with complete honesty, extreme discretion, and the highest level of integrity. After the independent appraiser that Jeff set up, I was pleasantly surprised at the amount of money that my company was worth. Jeff explained all aspects of the sale from our initial meeting, up to closing and even continued to follow-up with me to ensure that I was satisfied after the sale had already been finalized. Jeff even secured an amazing lease option of my building providing me additional income for years to come. The entire process from start to finish was much more expedited than I had anticipated. If I had another business to sell, I wouldn’t give it a second thought and would only call Jeff Adam. George Coon, President, AAA Seamless Aluminum Gutter Co.

I have the pleasure of working with Jeff on several occasions. He is extremely clear and to the point in communicating with others which shows his knowledge and competency in his field. He is very prompt in returning calls and answering emails even though, I am sure, he is in high demand and very busy. He is a man of strong character. In his business, he deals with many confidential situations and you can trust that he is very discreet. Susan Ferreri, Commercial Realtor, via LinkedIn

Jeff is the consummate business broker. A true professional, he easily outshines the competition. I’ve employed Jeff on 3 occasions, and he has done a magnificent job in getting my restaurant sold to another operator. Trustworthy and honest as the day is long, his expertise extends well beyond just the normal needs of brokering a business. He has an uncanny knack of reading people, distinguishing the tire kickers from those who genuinely want to purchase a business, and he does so with 100% integrity. A solid communicator throughout the various stages of selling the business, there is a reason I’ve used him several times. Simply put, there is nobody better. Jed Friend, Danny D’s BBQ

The 3-year preparation and sale of my 20-year-old sign manufacturing business was a difficult and emotional experience. I loved my employees and treated them like family. The personal and attentive service provided by Jeff and his team kept me on an even keel through this very emotional experience. The closing could not have been done without him! Mitch Levine, FastSigns, Sign Manufacturer

Thank you very much to Jeff Adam for handling all the aspects of selling my lawn maintenance business. After owning a business for 17 years the thought of selling it was daunting but Jeff answered every question I had, he had a strong grasp on the industry of my business, he provided a great listing, found the right buyer, and got me the best price possible. He made the process worry free and anytime I did have a question or concern, he always had time to email or talk to me. I didn’t know what to expect from using a broker as opposed to doing it myself but, after all is said and done, I would say that using a broker is the only way to go. Great job Jeff and thanks for all you did for me and my family. Casey Cunningham, Texas Organic Lawn Care

I would like to take this opportunity to commend Jeff Adam for his hard work and diligence. It is not often that you work with someone who is so professional and so interested in the well being of their clients. His advice as to the kind of information needed and the suggestions as to how to present that information has made the selling of my medical device company much easier than I expected. Jeff also prepared me for the built-in frustrations of a deal like this. This explanation of the frustrations prepared me for the times when the deal bogged down. Jeff always quickly returned phone calls and information requests. Jeff has been a real asset to me in the selling of my in the sale of my medical device company. If I have an opportunity to purchase or sell another company I would certainly contact him for his assistance. Paul R. Miller, CEO, Marketing Professionals In Medicine, Inc, Medical Device Manufacturer

Thank you for representing me on the successful sale of my company. I could not have been more pleased with overall valuation and sale process. Your explanation of the process and what to expect was informative and helpful. Everything was handled confidentially, with great care, service and professionalism. Your persistence following up with those interested buyers certainly made a difference and brought the sale process to a successful conclusion. Thank you again and please let me know if I can be of service to you or your company in the future. Steve Israel, President, Advanced Maintenance of Texas

Jeff was very patient, not pushy and very eager to educate me on the whole selling process. He understood the sensitivity of my market and was able to advertise without revealing my business identity. Throughout the whole process, Jeff was informative and professional. He walked me through the process and helped with the interviews with potential buyers. All potential buyers were prescreened for financial ability which eliminated wasted time with non-qualified buyers. The process of selling a business is stressful in many ways, but having someone working for you who knows the process and that you can trust, made it a positive experience. Mike Connor, Owner, Olympic Trails Sports

Thank you once again for your outstanding effort and attention to detail throughout the entire sales process of our business. The skill and innovation you have mastered through years of experience in working with business buyers and sellers allowed us to remain focused on running our business while you took care of selling our business! You handled everything in a highly professional manner, answered all of our questions, acted honestly and discreetly and frankly exceeded all of our expectations. We do appreciate the personal service you provided during the sale and the follow up afterwards to make sure the transition to the buyer continued smoothly well after the closing.
We highly recommend your services to anyone considering buying or selling a business.
Russell Bland, Blue Ribbon Rain Gutter, LLC.

We had been so pleased with our previous experience with the Adam Noble Group, that we hired them to sell our crown jewel: Frankston Paperbox Company. Jeff was able to work through all the sensitivities of dealing with a 50-year-old 3-person partnership. He facilitated a third-party valuation and structured a deal to meet our expectations. The buyers were an excellent fit and our industrial manufacturing business has flourished. We strongly recommend his firm! George K. Towles, Jr, Paul Sorrels, Owen Cobb, Partners, Frankston Paperbox

I just wanted to take a moment to thank Jeff for completing the sale of our brewery. From the beginning, he was upfront and professional about what steps needed to be taken by either party in order to get the ball rolling. Jeff was very familiar with our industry, which helped tremendously in getting the right valuation that helped in completing the selling phase of the process. We always felt he took the time to understand our needs and concerns and why we were making the tough decision to sell our business. I was always able to call Jeff, even when he was on vacation, he was checking in to see how we were doing! If at any time, I was feeling uneasy about the way things were progressing, he was more than willing to discuss these concerns and make any adjustments necessary to ease my concerns. Jeff was instrumental during the due diligence phase once we received an offer. He provided us with a qualified buyer and assisted both parties through this phase which led to a very uneventful “successful” closing! Chris Deible, Woodcreek Brewing Company LLC

Overall you are very knowledgeable and professional as well as personable and we would recommend you to facilitate the sale of a friend’s business. Mark Romanelli, President, MAR X 2 Corp.

Jeff actually represented the gentleman I bought the business from. I could not have asked for a better broker to have worked with. He was always honest and helpful in every situation. I could not have asked for a better man to work with ! If he didn’t have the answer immediately he got it quickly. Even after purchasing the business Jeff has contacted me personally many times asking if there is anything I needed or anything he can help with. I would highly recommend Jeff and the Adam Noble group to anyone looking to purchase a business! Kenneth Shaddix Jr, President, Truck Toys of Texas

I called several valuation companies. I was so impressed with your company from the initial web search, to speaking to you and your employees and through to the references. You run a first class operation! Phyllis Cox, Steve Hatcher Plumbing and Drain, LLC

Chris & I would like to thank you for the care and professionalism you provided during the sale. We had entertained the idea of using a business broker in the past, but quite frankly we were a bit leery of the lack of professionalism in the broker industry. You were highly recommended by someone we trust, and rightly so! From the time of our first meeting, you were upfront, honest and provided realistic expectations of the sale. Your communication with us throughout the process was impeccable. Whether by phone or email, you kept us informed every step of the way and were always quick to respond when we had questions. The entire process could not have gone better. If any potential clients would like to speak to a former client, please have them call Chris or myself. We will not hesitate to recommend Adam Noble Group!! Jean-Ann & Chris Taylor, President, H.L. Taylor, Inc

Successfully managing a deal between a buyer and seller of a business takes years of experience and a unique skill set. Adapting to the requirements of the different professionals that are part of the process requires a calm and patient temperament. Jeff has these attributes and more. Hervey P. Levin, Attorney

Jeff Adam was referred to me by a close friend from Church. He highly recommended Jeff and now I understand why! Jeff and his team handled a difficult sale of 2 long-established businesses with professionalism and attention to detail. Thank you! I recommend Adam Noble Group for the appraisal or sale of ANY business! Dave Leffler, Financial Services Business

Jeff represented my company through our sale. His expertise was clearly visible as he coached our organization through the sales process, achieving a well-qualified offer in a short timeframe and an expeditious closing. Jeff was prompt, timely to my phone calls, emails and texts with accurate, sound advice. I would highly recommend Jeff Adam and the Adam Noble Group as a business owner to manage the exit planning process. Chris Brewster, Comfort Keepers, Specialists in-home non-medical Senior Care

We had never sold a company but had built a successful manufacturing business. After completing an independent valuation, we hired Adam Noble Group firm to sell our business. They quickly presented several qualified buyers and helped us chose the best fit. He helped all parties work through some surprises and get to closing. We strongly recommend Jeff Adam and Adam Noble Group to anyone needing to value or sell their business. William & Khoan Do, CEO, Delta Signs, Inc

I just wanted to take a quick moment and thank you for your work with our recent acquisition. I’ve conducted acquisitions for 18 years and this process was efficient, very professional, and well managed. While you definitely represented the other party with integrity, once we reached a fundamental agreement, you did an excellent to get the process finished. Too often, the inexperience of the seller causes a sale to fall through. You communicated to both parties quickly and honestly about the process and steps necessary to get us past the finish line.
I am particularly impressed by the extent you have followed up after the sale to ensure expectations were met and so you can continue to improve your role. I’ve seen too many brokers that are only interested in their commissions and disappear after. I definitely would recommend you and Adam Noble Group to other owners and buyers. Quickly and professionally getting to a close, beats looking at deals. Opportunities you bring to my companies will move to the top of consideration based on this experience.
