To Whom it may concern
In early 2007 I purchased a business through Gary Johnston of Johnston Business Sales.
Eight and a half years later it was time to sell and Gary was called along with a relative’s referral at a nationwide franchise.
The difference was as chalk and cheese.
Not only was Gary confident of realising a vastly better price but the speed of his work was extraordinary following his formal engagement to market the business.
Three days after he began work there had been three or four interested parties sourced. Though these did not materialise into buyers the enquiries kept coming. Two offers were declined – the second well above what had been suggested as top dollar by the other broker.
Then one day when a sale looked imminent Gary sustained a fall and was laid up in hospital for a few days. He still kept in regular communication from his hospital bed and the sale was completed.
The whole process from Gary’s engagement to settlement took just under three months and throughout that time Gary’s response times were always very fast and his manner extremely professional.
I can commend Gary’s services to anyone seeking to buy or sell a business

Gary Johnson has acted on our behalf on the sale of a couple of our businesses.
He is probably the most professional Broker we have ever met.
He gets his facts properly organised, draws up a detailed Profile and knows exactly what he is selling.
Gary then works extremely hard to find a Buyer and is always efficient and excellent with his follow through skills.
We would recommend him to anyone as being the Broker you should use.

I have used Johnston Business Sales for selling two prior businesses, both times with outstanding results.
The 1st time, in 2011, other brokers were not really interested in listing my business for sale, but Gary had it sold, virtually as soon as I spoke to him.
The 2nd time, in 2016, it was a much larger business which took some time to secure a buyer, but he secured a buyer at roughly double what other brokers wanted to list it for. So, I am very happy with the results of using Johnston Business Sales.

Eamonn managed the purchase of my current business. His negotiating skills are exceptional and enabled me to secure this business at not just a competitive price but on commercially beneficial payment terms.
His extensive experience and advice ensured my business case to the bank was both compelling and realistic.

Just wanted to thank you for finding a buyer for my shares. Your advice and support made the process possible and the amount you realised was greatly appreciated!

I have known Gary for over 14 years and he was instrumental in selling my business back in 2007. When I bought this business back in 2015, contrary to every ones advise, to help resurrect it, I had no hesitation in contacting Gary again to help me resell the business in 2019 which Gary has successfully achieved.
Gary has all ways acted professionally and been easy to discuss things with. I would have no hesitation in recommending him if you are looking to sell or purchase a business.
“My wife and I owned and operated a mining maintenance business in Mackay employing twelve staff. After six years we decided to move on and sell the business and start another chapter in our lives. Our dilemma at this point was – how do go about selling the business?.
After looking in to all avenues and speaking to numerous marketing and brokerage companies we chose to go with Gary Johnston at Johnston Business Sales. Gary was very professional in all aspects of the sale process, this included flying to Mackay to meet with my wife and I, offering a marketing programe, which was affordable while having impact. Our sale was very time consuming for all parties however, Gary worked tirelessly no matter what time of the day or week to get the results and close a deal. Gary constantly keeping us informed during the marketing and sale processes. I have no hesitation recommending Gary Johnston to anyone who’s considering selling their business. Both my wife and I wish Gary all the best for the future, should we decide to purchase another business in Australia, Gary will be our first Port of Call”.

We talked to a trusted business friend when we decided to sell our business which was the market leading business in our field in Australia. Our friend, suggested Gary Johnson as he had used Gary successfully in the past. We set up a meeting and discussed the sale. It was immediately apparent that Gary’s reputation as a top notch Business Broker was well justified. Within minutes we had established a sale price for our multimillion dollar business. We clarified add backs, depreciation, staff, tax and many other issues in a fast flowing business meeting. We were impressed with Gary and his professional approach.
We knew that Gary was the correct man for the job of selling our business. Gary’s vast years of experience meant he was able to search his database of potential and prequalified customers. We were immediately meeting with potential purchasers who were keen to purchase our highly successful business.
The sale of any business is complex. There are many twists and turns. Gary knew them all and he was a pleasure to deal with. We gladly paid his commission fee and we sold our business for a life altering amount. I have since introduced Gary to 4 different friends and Gary has successfully sold all 4 business’s. He even bought me lunch as a thank you. Gary is first class – in my opinion you won’t find a better Business Broker anywhere.
