"Dear Carrie,

I am writing to send heart-felt thanks for your diligent work in my search and eventual purchase of a business. While it was a long road, due to my inexperience and lack of listings, I am now looking forward to putting my energy into my newly purchased entity.

Your patience, guidance and knowledge were priceless assets in my search and in securing the purchase. You were professional, responsive, and your experience as a former commercial loan officer was extremely beneficial.

I also appreciate your flexibility in working with me, being an out-of-state buyer and in a different time zone.

As you know, my plan for this recently purchased business is to sell it within a year or two and then purchase another business. I plan to utilize your services for both ventures, and I would highly recommend you as an agent for anyone who is contemplating buying or selling an existing business.

Again, thank you – truly.

With gratitude,
Laura "

"Carrie and I worked together locating a leased location in East Orlando.

I thoroughly enjoyed my time working with Carrie and came to know her as my agent and friend. She is phenomenal. Beyond that, she is a good person, which means more to me than anything else. Carrie is not thrown off by any roadblocks, of which we've hit many. She is a problem solver and a hard worker. Carrie's acumen and professionalism slay. Negotiations took longer than expected, but she never lost sight of my ultimate goals, and she kept me sane.

Carrie has been an absolute joy to work with. In fact, she's now helping me locate a second space and is now working with my husband John to purchase a bigger building for his growing business. We plan to stick with her, and have offered her a permanent exclusivity with us as we have large expansion plans and I wouldn't want anyone else working with us."

“I first got to know Carrie when she was representing a company I had considered purchasing. Carrie was incredibly knowledgeable, thorough, informative, and kind - so much so, that when I made the decision to exit my company, I knew right away I wanted Carrie to help me with it. Carrie walked me through everything step by step. No question was too dumb! Her experience in dealing with all kinds of businesses and personalities really help set realistic expectations.

1st & Main really took the time to understand my business and helped the potential buyers understand what they were looking at. It helped clear out some of the “clutter”. This way I only had to speak with the folks who were truly interested and qualified.

We received multiple offers and found one that was a good fit. The sale closed in record time! Carrie was always accessible and she really understood what I was looking for in a buyer.

Selling your company can and will be stressful but, Carrie’s approach and sense of humor made the experience much less stressful!

I would recommend 1st & Main to anyone who is thinking about selling their company, already at the point where they want to sell or if you need help purchasing a business.

By the way, by way of the nice Thank You gift I received, I learned that Carrie has excellent taste in wine and cute bags!"
