Although we have almost 2 years of telephone time between, it's truly a shame that we have never met face to face. I am very appreciative of all the help you provided over the past 2 years. Finally, I was able to find a business that with out your help I am sure I would not have found. If anyone is ever asking about a business purchase, or a good broker rest assured Mel Vaz at VBB is the guy I will tell them to go see. Once again thanks for the help, and the best wishes!

Mel was great to work with. I tested the market with Mel three years before we actually sold the company. When I was ready to sell again, after having improved the bottom-line, Mel picked up where we left off and closed the sale in just a few months. He only brought me knowledgeable, qualified leads, and he was extremely flexible with both myself and the final buyer. He helped me stay comfortable during the process and gave guidance on pricing and negotiation. There is almost no chance I could have found a buyer on my own, and I would use Mel's services again in a heartbeat.

Thanks again for all your help and professionalism in helping Anthony and I in making our dream of owning a business a reality. Stop by anytime if you are ever in the area for some delicious food! Thanks again and Happy New Year!

At first I thought a broker would be an obstacle in the process of purchasing a business, I met Mel Vaz on a visit to a business that was for sale. After months of due diligence and an uncooperative seller, Mr. Vaz made sure to keep the focus on both parties interests and tirelessly worked to move the deal towards closing. After 8 months of attempts to get to closing, the deal was not sealed and I as a buyer moved on. Upon finding my ideal business and the property for sale on Vested's website, once again Mr. Vaz stepped up and guide both the seller and myself through to closing and I am very appreciative for his assistance. Thank you Mel!

(Mel Vaz Senior Business Broker) I just wanted to send a note of appreciation for Mel Vaz's hard work on our recently completed business sale. We met Mel over 2 years ago, and signed up with your firm in September 2012. After going through a large number of buyers and no deals, we signed up with another firm. We had a signed LOI through that firm, but the deal fell apart in February of this year. In the meantime, Mel had been keeping diligently in touch, and was able to raise to the challenge we put before him to come up with another real buyer within a week! He brought 3 highly qualified parties to the table immediately and had a signed LOI within 2 weeks! We ended up closing the deal within 2 months and got a substantially higher number than the previous deal! The reason I am taking the time to write this is because Mel deserves so much credit for his patience, perseverance, negotiating skills, and professionalism throughout the entire process. He never gave up after the first round, and was able to win it in the end. We are extremely happy with Mel'sservice and the deal he was able to bring to conclusion.

(Mel Vaz Senior Business Brokers) Mel Vaz was very professional. He brought in several prospective buyers who were real and looking for a business. He was easy to get a hold of when I needed him and we even got a buyer.

We truly appreciate all your work and support during the negotiation process. Your level of professionalism was excellent and well regarded. We'd like to keep our communication lines open as my parents consider selling their restaurant at the latter end of this year.

(Mel Vaz Senior Business Broker) Mel Vaz helped my wife and I sell our liquor store. He brought a qualified buyer almost immediately from the time we first listed with him. Negotiations were swift and concise and before we knew it we were under contract just awaiting a closing date. Besides a small snafu, a delay in getting the temporary license for the new buyers, things went very smooth and quickly. Calls are returned in a timely fashion, even on weekends. We cannot thank Mel and hiscompany helping us achieve our goals.

Dear Mel, Thank you again for all your assistance with my purchase of the detail business. Your overall knowledge and ability to successfully address my questions and concerns, not only with this business, but the others we investigated have made you a great resource in navigating through these acquisitions. Thank you again, Brian

(Mel Vaz-Senior Business Broker) I worked with Mel to sell my eCommerce business and he found a buyer I was very happy with. I was extremely happy my company sold! Mel is one of the most professional business brokers I have ever worked with. He follows up, he is responsive, and he really does a great job. He also communicates very well. Because of his great work, I put another one of my companies for sale with him and Vested. I am not using any other broker because I feel he will definitely find me another buyer and I would rather give him the business. I am also looking for another business opportunity and would prefer to go through him. He really is a great guy and I really like working with him. He is definitely one of the more honest brokers out there. Vested is definitely one of the better business broker companies out there. I would highly recommend Vested Business Brokers and specifically Mel Vaz. They have buying and selling a business down to a science.
