Testimonials from Clients

“We utilized Gulfstream Mergers during the recent sale of our company. With the guidance of Gulfstream Mergers we successfully managed to merge with a larger company positioning our firm for more growth. During the process Gulfstream Mergers was very professional and helped guide us through the process. There was no pressure to just take the first offers that came along. Gulfstream Mergers wanted us to find the “right” fit for our needs. We would recommend Gulfstream Mergers if you are interested in having a very professional M&A firm work with you for a successful deal.”

David E. Criser - President, Criser Troutman Tanner Consulting Engineers

“We contacted Gulfstream Mergers & Acquisitions after being approached by a large national competitor. We needed someone to tell us the value of our company and if we were provided a fair offer. After meeting with their team, we felt comfortable with hiring Gulfstream Mergers to perform a valuation and represent us. Long story short, under the representation from Gulfstream, we received a significantly better offer and terms. We never felt alone during the transaction. They handled all the heavy lifting, including the negotiations, to get the deal done.”

Bill Zimmerman - President, Zimmerman’s Hardware

Rita Mitchell - Wells Fargo Bank

“Gulfstream Mergers & Acquisitions was instrumental in the sale of our business. From our initial meeting, to business valuation, and all the way through the closing, they made the process very easy. Having never gone through a sale before, their guidance, timely communication, and 20+ years of experience was a game changer for us! Some specific items that stood out that sets this company apart from others- their strong value of integrity and a people-first mentality, their ability to respond and follow up quickly, their ability to provide guidance on items we had not considered or were aware of. Personally, and professionally, we would highly recommend Gulfstream Mergers & Acquisitions and will use them again in the future if there is an opportunity in buying or selling a company!”

Victoria Ciesi – Owner, GAVA Wellness, LLC

“I have had the pleasure of knowing and working with Gulfstream Mergers for approximately two years. After completing an acquisition in early 2017, I have continued to maintain a close relationship with Gulfstream as I have come to appreciate their values and the importance their team places on its relationships. In an industry stuffed with both unethical and uneducated firms and brokers looking no further than themselves, their own interests, and personal financial gain, I continue to be drawn to the honest, straightforward, and highly ethical approach of Gulfstream. Their communication, messages, and in person encounters are always consistent and a pleasure – demonstrating a high level of respect and commitment to pairing an ideal match between seller and buyer.”

Joshua J. Coster - Owner, Wil-Ro, Inc.

“Handling the transfer and sale of our family business was a daunting process. Especially dealing with the sensitive personal aspects of a multi-generational business. It is impossible to count the number of times during this process when we've said 'we're so glad to have Gulfstream beside us. They've been tirelessly professional and calm, and always ready with the right advice. The proof is that they got us the best possible deal and we still continue to call them for their advice today. I can't think of anyone in the industry with their humanity, experience and cool nerve. I am truly delighted that we chose to be represented by them. ”

Carlos Martinez – Owner, Cake Designs

“Business owners represent an important sector of our clientele and we value our position as their trusted advisor. We recognize, however, that we cannot be experts in everything. We highly recommend our business owners have a conversation with Gulfstream Mergers to discuss exit or growth strategies for their business. In the event they are thinking of a sale we trust the Gulfstream Mergers team to give them honest advice regarding current options are and to help them understand the process. This is an easy sell for us, Gulfstream Mergers often determines now may not be the best time to sell. The client leaves informed, but not pressured in any way to make a decision. We would thoroughly recommend a partnership with Gulfstream Mergers to any advisor who works closely with business owners. It really has been a really important partnership for us and allowed us to do the best by our clients.”

Robert Campo - Mortgage Camp

"We found the team at Gulfstream to be tremendous partners in the sale of our business. We felt informed, guided and supported throughout the twists and turns of a complicated process. Without their contacts and judgement we could not have achieved such a successful result, and we equally appreciated the calm and assured way in which they led us through all the different and often challenging aspects of the process."

Marc Quintero - President, Linear Lighting

“There are many ways I could describe my team at Gulfstream – professional, knowledgeable, likeable, – most importantly I felt secure that I had a partner watching out for my families interests.”

Lily Carmona – Owner, Lily’s Beauty Supply

“Gulfstream maintains a skill set in the sale of businesses that our accounting firm does not possess: explaining and managing the selling process, understanding the current marketplace for various industries, providing access to private equity and strategic buyers, maintaining confidentiality. Importantly, they work with us to maintain relationships and produce new fee opportunities with our clients. Most accounting firms don’t have a dedicated business sales team and don’t specialize in M&A. Gulfstream can handle all sizes of deal. They are equipped to talk to clients looking for a sale today or guide them towards a future exit.”

Olga Melo - Melo Accounting

“Before partnering with the team at Gulfstream I never had an answer for my clients who came to me asking for help selling their business. Frankly I never met any group I felt I could trust and as an attorney it wasn’t something I was comfortable doing for them myself. Even worse were the clients who had already sold their business and now needed my help sorting out the mess from the sale. Now it’s different. I sat down with Gulfstream and they explained to me how their process worked and how they would work with us and our clients. I was impressed, since then I have directed my business owner clients towards Gulfstream, and my feedback has always been a thank you for the introduction. Additionally, they have recommended their clients back to me. It is now part of our strategy to work closer with the Gulfstream team. I don’t want my clients, or us, to miss out on any opportunities.”

Orlando Cicilia - Rothman and Tobin and Associates

"Gulfstream was a formidable partner in the sale of our business. We greatly appreciated being represented by people who combine immense professionalism and knowledge of the process with warmth and a personal style that gave us total confidence. Everything from the initial consultation, the preparation of the Information Memorandum, contacting potential buyers through to the negotiations and conclusion of the sale was done to the highest standards. Their advice was always clear, sound and helpful. They were tireless in pursuing our best interests, which we feel they maintained at the forefront throughout. I shall have no hesitation in recommending the services of Gulfstream Mergers to other owners."

Richard Leal - President, International Coffee Warehouses

"We could not possibly have gone through the sale of our business without the guidance and help of everyone at Gulfstream. Since the sale we have recommended your services to many colleagues and we know that they will be in very good hands when the day comes for them to make a decision about their business or part of it. Any professional can give advice but the difference between professionals is evident in the manner in which advice is given. Our experience with Gulfstream was positive in every respect – friendly, super-efficient, solicitous, discreet, and when necessary, encouraging."

Joseph Mason - President, Landscape The South

"My initial experience with Gulfstream was actually on the other side of the table as a buyer of one of the companies they were representing. We were so impressed by how they helped facilitate that transaction successfully in a sincere and professional manner that we immediately began pursuing a second transaction with them. Within a year we had completed our second purchase together. We cannot recommend them high enough and we look forward to more deals together."

Hector Martinez - Marmel Group

"You did a fantastic job for us in the successful sale of our business. From points of detail to the big issues, you are amazingly adept at the whole range. Thank You."
