My wife and I were looking for a business to purchase for approximately 12 months. We were introduced to Gloria and her team at Connect Business Agents. She showed us a proposal for the purchase of a thriving Post Office in the Northern Suburbs of Melbourne.
This is our first venture into a Post Office and after several consultations with Gloria, we loved the idea. She made the purchase streamline and effortless for us, and guided us every step of the way and helped to complete the necessary paperwork.
She was available at any time to answer any questions, and her communication skills were excellent. Her professionalism at every stage of the purchase made it so easy for us to comprehend.
It has been over 1 year now since the purchase and my wife and I could not be happier. Gloria’s back-up made the transition to Australia Post effortless. Thank-you Gloria and all at Connect Business Agents.
My wife and I have recently been fortunate in having Gloria Ammerlaan at Connect Business Agents secure the sale of our Licensed Post Office.
We had owned our business for 18 years. When we purchased our business all those years ago, it was also negotiated and secured through Gloria.
During the 18 years, Gloria always stayed in touch, whether it be through a Christmas card, a phone call or to share market information.
The level of communication and dedication in getting the sale across the line was first class. The manner in which she helped us remain balanced throughout the various twists and turns, that inevitably occur in either a purchase or sale, was always at the forefront of her dealing with us.
Gloria and her team are very efficient when it comes to communication and always kept us up to date on whatever was transpiring. We were very impressed with Gloria’s negotiation skills and her dedication to get our business sold.
I recently sold my Licensed Post Office business through Gloria Ammerlaan of Connect Business Agents.
Gloria was very professional, hardworking and extremely helpful, she went above and beyond to make sure everything ran smoothly. Through a long and difficult process Gloria worked tirelessly on the sale of my business and kept the deal together to settlement. Her knowledge of the sales process is second to none. She handled all the parties involved, including Solicitors with her professionalism, promptness and attention to detail. I was completely satisfied with her services.
I have no hesitation in recommending Gloria and Connect Business Agents to anyone who is looking at buying or selling a business, she is a pleasure to deal with.
We spoke to a few business brokers when we were ready to sell our architectural drafting business. We chose Gloria Ammerlaan from Connect Business Agents because we immediately felt comfortable with her and appreciated her down to earth honest approach. She was very realistic about our chances of selling an uncommon business and we felt in capable hands.
This proved to be an excellent decision as Gloria was very professional, prompt and thorough throughout the very short period it took to sell our business. Gloria was open to our suggestions on how to market our business, was always amiable and nothing was too much trouble. We were kept informed of progress throughout the entire period and were supported right through to hand-over.
In summary, we would not hesitate to recommend Gloria. Her professional approach, attention to detail and excellent communication, ensured a smooth sale from beginning to end.
A big thank you to Connect Business Agents for their studious and personable approach to the sale of our business. With a thoughtful approach and much diligence in a quiet market, Gloria managed to sell our business in good time. There was no doubt that Gloria, with her calm professionalism, helped calm troubled moments that might have seen the deal slip away. I am quite happy to recommend Connect Business Agents to anyone interested in using their broker services.

I was completely satisfied with her professionalism and her knowledge of business sales. Gloria advised me that selling a business usually takes between 6-9 months. Gloria stayed with the deal from start to finish and I was able to sell my business under her expected time frame. This was due to her persistence and hard work.
I would refer Gloria to any prospective client without hesitation.

Connect Business Agents have provided excellent service to us in regard to selling our small Air-Conditioning business.
This was a home based business with approximately 6-8 employees, and we had been trading for over 22 years from the same premises.
Gloria from Connect Business Agents explained the processes of advertising and marketing the business very clearly so that we had a full understanding of what to expect and how to proceed.
Gloria worked hard to develop any relevant interest into a meeting and discussions where someone had a genuine interest in purchasing the business.
No time was wasted on merely speculative parties.
The communication and follow up required to secure a contract of sale was relatively quick and smooth.
Gloria communicated efficiently with all parties relating to the sale, and was very helpful regarding correspondence with our solicitor.
All necessary confidentialities were strictly maintained, permitting us to make a smooth and productive handover, which in turn was a benefit to the buyer and all of our employees.
Our business was on the market for only 1 year, where associates in similar industries have been attempting to sell their businesses via other avenues over much longer periods.
We are very happy with the services Connect Business Agents has provided and Gloria has been very good to work with during this potentially tedious process.
We would like to thank Connect Business Agents and have no hesitation in recommending their services.

Given the time frame from the beginning to the end, I was truly impressed how Gloria kept the deal together. Gloria continued throughout to make sure that all aspects of the Contract were in place.
I really appreciated her assistance.
