“As I am sure you know, Selling or Transferring Ownership of a business is one of the most important transactions of a lifetime. Several years prior to selling our business, we reached out to CCA for guidance on preparing our business for its eventual sale. The team at CCA guided us on what added value and marketability, as well as educating us on what to expect when we were ready to market our Mechanical business.
The expectations and projections that CCA set for us were accurate and the team guided us step by step thru due diligence and the final sale process. We are thankful for their support and fortunate that we chose the right partner to work with!”
