Here are just a few comments from people whose businesses we have sold and others for who we have found businesses for them to buy
Thanks from W&L South Coast Investments Ltd
I would just like to say a very big thank you to David Winn-Morgan, for his very professional and first class service representing our Company with the purchase of the Hook & Parrott in Seaton. Not only did David sort everything for both parties but 80% of this was done during the Covid-19 lockdown.
We can’t thank Wales & West Business Brokers enough and look forward to working with you guys again in the future.
Director of W & L South Coast Investments Ltd
Good morning David
We just had to drop you a quick note of thanks for all the hard work. It is often a long and difficult road that finally brings a business acquisition to closing. We are so pleased with the job you did selling our business…. we counted on your experience …. and you didn’t let us down! You had a plan for marketing the business right from the start. You laid it out or us and stuck to it. We were especially impressed by the professional and comprehensive way in which you sought to understand the business operations and then presented them to buyers.
You realised the years of hard work and dedication put into building the successful consultancy business and you really took the time to understand its every aspect, as well as build a relationship with us in order to fully appreciate its unique nature. Moreover, you were able to communicate that appreciation to its new owner- enabling them to recognise the value of the business and its clients. We would be happy to recommend you to anyone considering the sale of their business.
It has been a pleasure working with you.

We have never sold a business before and David made the process easy, he explained each stage the talked through any concerns we had. He kept us inform of any interest etc. I couldn't recommend him enough. We couldn't have done it without him.
Picture Framing Company
David Winn-Morgan accepted our instructions in January 2021 to find a suitable buyer for our picture framing and engraving business within the year.
He advised on how best to price the business to take it to market and subsequently found us suitable buyers with whom we were able to conclude a deal.
Using the business conveyancing solicitor that David recommended, the deal was completed before year end, as we had hoped.
From our experience, we would thoroughly recommend using South East Coast Brokers for selling a small to medium sized business.
Protozoon I.T. Company
David was superb at helping us when we decided to sell our business. He guided us with a free valuation and lots of helpful advice (never having done it before). We kissed a few different frogs before we found the right one, and the whole process was done and dusted in six months from start to finish. What more could you ask? David was also very pleasant to deal with.
Excellent service from engagement to completion . David was very helpful with all aspects of sale and always available to talk to if we had any queries. Would highly recommend.
David was exceptional when selling my business. He was so experienced and patiently navigated me through the process which I would have found very daunting were it not for him. He was always prepared to go the extra mile working evenings and weekends.
I would thoroughly recommend his service to anyone wanting to sell a business.
The Sale of Druce and Owen Fabrications
Both Glynne and I would like to express our gratitude for the tremendous amount of work and enthusiasm you put into selling Druce and Owen. I think after a very short time we all realised it was not going to be an easy job certainly in the current economic climate and in the end it became a challenge that you rose to admirably. So thank you for all your efforts and you may rest assured we would not hesitate to recommend your services. If we have a regret its that we did not approach you a few years ago with a view to putting an "exit" plan in place.
Once again thanks and very best wishes for the future

The Sale of Beaufort Montague Harris Solicitors
This is to say thank you very much indeed for your invaluable assistance in selling a part of my solicitors’ practice recently. I am delighted with the result and especially grateful to you for finding a buyer and negotiating a deal which fitted the bill perfectly.
Selling a law firm, or part, is a very complex operation. We lawyers are always being told that no-one will pay a premium for our practices, and that the best we can hope for is to get out without having to pay for run-off cover. We have managed to disprove that, and I fully agree that the production of a comprehensive business profile at the very beginning proved to be decisive in attracting interest.
Having found the buyer and negotiated terms, you remained fully involved in the sale process, and read all documents to ensure that the agreed deal was being executed. I would like to think that I would have picked up the VAT point about TOGC myself, but in the event you got there before I did and thus we were able to ensure that this vital issue was addressed, and ultimately dealt with in the correct manner.
I have no hesitation in recommending you to other solicitors who are wishing to sell their practices, and would be happy to speak to anyone who wanted to gain reassurance. Needless to say, you are most welcome to forward this email to any interested party.
I look forward to working with you in due course in selling the balance of my practice.
With very best wishes

Testimonial from Mr.and Mrs.Chohan
Our decision to use a broker over the conventional agents was simply the best decision we made in an appointing David Winn-Morgan of South East Business Brokers.
Right from the outset David understood our needs and requirements and fully instilled confidence that selling our business was simply not another on the books but his personal goal to get the best for his clients, which he absolutely delivered! Whilst David’s portfolio demonstrates his vast experience in selling businesses, words cannot describe his professionalism, dedication and commitment to client care and the end-to-end process of selling a business.
David generated a vast amount of interest in our business, arranging convenient viewings, supporting the strengths of the business and as any prospective buyer would expect he had a sound understanding of the factors which demonstrated business potential. David continuously provided and acted on prospective buyer feedback, ensuring we were continuously informed. David takes the time to research location, environmental and external factors which may impact the business from both seller and buyer prospective. His approach and advice is realistic, yet focused to achieve the best for his client. David supported us throughout, with all our questions and providing timely solutions to any issues which cropped up!
Our business presented complexities in a change in Landlord and lease term. David had a wealth of knowledge in handling this matter, he understood the legalities of lease terms which assisted to ensure that he achieved the best terms for all parties. This was a mammoth task which David confidently set as a personal challenge; his advice and support throughout was invaluable and beyond our expectations. On securing a buyer that was not the end for David, he continued to assist us in recommending an equally committed solicitor and both collaborated well through to completion.
Selling our business due to difficult unexpected family circumstances was a difficult decision, throughout this period David showed immense compassion, understanding and consideration, prioritising a swift and smooth transaction. We cannot thank David enough for his professional drive but also his personable approach in taking the time to care about both his clients and our business.
We highly recommend David Winn-Morgan to anyone looking to sell their business, he delivered throughout, from finding a buyer to assisting with the transaction, timely communication and even maintaining contact after the sale! David certainly is one of the best in the business.
Thank you David!
Mr & Mrs Chohan
David offers a highly professional, knowledgeable, personal and proactive service.
He helped me sell my business and I cannot recommend David and South East Business Brokers enough. He was permanently on the ball and always going the extra mile.
He generated an immense amount of interest in my business and his communication skills are superb.
Not only does he have a wealth of knowledge and experience at each stage of the process but he is also very honest and they are a company of sincere integrity."

‘When I decided to sell my business a friend recommended that I speak with David and I’m so pleased I did. Not only did David advertise my business for sale but also helped me to value it. He suggested a reasonably high price and we agreed to advertise it at that level - within just 1 week we had 6 interested parties. David handled all the enquiries and negotiations very efficiently and I didn’t have to do anything but attend a couple of meeting he arranged. Within 3 months the business was sold and not far short of the asking price. I found David to be incredibly knowledgeable and very helpful and patient with all my questions. He’s also very efficient and reliable. I can’t recommend him enough’

Testimonial for Sale of Fish & Chip shop
When we made the decision to sell our Fish & Chip Shop, it was a pretty monumental decision and something that you have to really be prepared for. David Winn-Morgan made this whole process a really great and positive experience.
David’s commitment to us as his clients went well and truly above and beyond the call of anything we have previously experienced before. This company really knows how to meet its clients’ needs and requirements, and that meant a lot of pressure was taken off of our shoulders. We felt very reassured at every level of this sales process (which can be fraught with many a situation to be gotten over!), and David helped to source solutions and smooth over any problems that cropped up.
David Winn-Morgan enabled us to achieve a fair selling price for our business, to have confidentiality at every level, and to be able to deal with them 24/7, something that is very important when you are a catering establishment operating long hours.
Our experience with David was such a positive one, we would recommend them to anyone potentially looking to sell their business, and when we are ready to ‘go again’ we also wouldn’t hesitate to use them to help find and purchase a new business too.
We have dealt with other Sales Operators before selling our previous businesses, and although we appreciate that everyone needs to ‘earn their bit’, South East Business Brokers has a much more personable approach to this process than any of the other competitors we have dealt with in the past. They truly strive to achieve the ‘Best’ for all parties concerned and we couldn’t recommend them (or David) highly enough!
Thanks so much Louise & Rob
