Testimonials

I can’t say enough great things about Pino and the crew at Pacific Business Brokers. My wife and I, after 10 years, sold a medium sized yacht detailing company. After hearing the horror stories of others who have sold businesses on their own, we decided the right way to go was to hire a professional. We are so glad we did. Assessing the value of the business was very in depth and allowed Pino to get an accurate assessment of what our company was worth. At his presentation, he assessed us at about 3 times what we thought it was worth. I remember distinctly, looking at him and the number he had on the whiteboard and asking – “but what do you think we’ll actually get?” He looked at me and then turned back to the board and pointed at the number. Within a couple of months, the business sold for full price and with Pino’s assistance, we were able to complete the transaction with no fuss. We have another bigger business, and when the time comes to sell it, we won’ t hesitate to call Pino and Pacific Business Brokers.

We worked with Pino Bacinello of Pacific M & A to acquire a manufacturing company in the lower mainland. Peter’s attention to detail, professionalism and ability to work collaboratively with the parties was key to completing the transaction. Pino and his firm bring full value to all aspects of a transaction.
– J.W.

Have used Pacific services for over 14 years and they will always be our first “go-to” company in these instances. Pino Bacinello is personable and more interested in his client’s well being, than making a deal work. His favour in my business deal circumstances will never be forgotten.

Five Star all the way. Pino and his team made the sale of the business go smoothly and it was done professionally. Strongly recommend this team for the sale or Purchase of a company!
– L.P.

Pino and his team were amazing to work with when purchasing a business they had listed. They guided us every step of the way and made the process simple and painless. I’d definitely recommend them to anyone looking to purchase one of their listings. Very honest and straight forward.
– A.B.

Pino and his staff are the most professional group of individuals I have ever had the pleasure to work with. They helped me navigate the successful sale of my business, which included an extensive CIM. The Pacific M&A team were there from the beginning to the end and beyond so that I was assured that all my concerns were met. I would not hesitate to recommend Pacific M&A.
– D.J.

Highly recommend working with Ian Houghton. Calm, professional and hard-working. A true gentleman.
– P.H.

The team at Pacific really helped my business partner and I out by providing their valuation services at a pivotal point with our business. They hit the promised timelines and communicated well throughout the process. Upon presentation, they recommended we hold the business for a couple more years prior to selling and even gave us ways to improve the value in that time. Would highly recommend!
– C.K.

PM&A was excellent to deal with! They are clearly experts in this industry. The price for the evaluation and listing was well done… but the best part was the advice and help based on experience and wisdom. Kent, you’re the best…

In a time of uncertainty due to the covid pandemic, Paul Savage got the sale of my business completed in the time frame he said it would take. I was so impressed with his drive to get the job done. Thank you, Paul!
– Mr. Paul Denley

Your work laid the ground for a smooth closing. Thank you for the referral.
– C.B., Lawyer

I used their business and they sold my business within 2-3 weeks. Good people, they have a lot of buyers, good buyers. I referred my friend and they sold their business as well. They tried to sell it themselves in a year, and Pacific sold it within 2 months.

I have appreciated the professional and very helpful manner in which you have guided this transaction over the past few months. Good luck.. and stay in touch.
– M.R.

We recently had Pacific Business Brokers sell one of our businesses. From step one, they give you a feeling of absolute confidence that you have the best company on the job selling your business. Very professional and great communication with their clients. Our business sold in less than 6 months for full price. They stayed with us every step of the way making it a surprisingly stressless event. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them to anyone thinking of taking the plunge and selling their business.
– D.S.

We bought a business from Pacific Business Brokers successfully in 2017, and we are impressed with its professionalism and the efficiency during the process. The broker Arthur is responsive and easy to communicate. Pino the Managing Broker is extremely knowledgeable and helped us along the way as well. They touched base with us after the transaction as well. Make sure to subscribe to the newsletter from them too!
– K.W.

Amazing job over the long last stage of the process. You always kept the flag high over everything!
– B.R.

Thank you so much for all that you did to ensure this transaction went as smoothly as it did. I truly appreciate all the hard work you put in.
– A.B.

Thank you for bringing the parties together and for the part you played in getting over the various hurdles we met along the way.
– G.K., Mitchell Law Corp

Now that the sale has wrapped up and we can begin to focus on our roles in the next phase, I just wanted to let you know how impressed I am with everything that you did to make it happen for us. It’s truly been a pleasure having you on “our side”. It was a very memorable experience.
– M.S.

Thank you for all the hard work in putting this deal together. It was great working with you. I will not hesitate to recommend you to represent any friends or acquaintances looking to sell their company here in Kamloops or elsewhere. I have learned a lot from this process and thank you for being patient during my learning
– J. I., The Counter Toppers Custom Granite

It was a pleasure working with you. A very well organized and detailed transaction that you arranged which made my job relatively easy.
– J.V., Paperclip Law Corporation

Thanks for everything that you’ve done to make this deal go through. It’s not the easiest deal to close, I’m sure, but your patience and professionalism in handling the whole process has made it a lot easier for all the parties involved. Without your assistance I am sure this deal would not have closed and we will still be selling the business (and the Buyers still shopping for one). Thanks again – and Congratulations to you too – for making the almost impossible possible.

It was 5 months yesterday that we met with you in Vancouver. At that time we were just interviewing different brokers to see who we would be most comfortable working with. Obviously it was PBB that we chose – and once we made the decision to do the Valuation process, we were ready to list. From listing, to site visits, to an offer, to an acceptance, to waivers, to closing – it took only 3 months! We never, ever, would have thought this was possible. This note is just to acknowledge the comprehension, courtesy and professionalism throughout the whole process. It was very reassuring to know that you were at our side every step of the way – any time of the day/night – and any day of the week. We realize that we are not one of your larger accounts – but at no time did we ever feel that we were treated with any less respect.
– D.M.

I appreciate the professional manner in which you handled this transaction. Very well done!

I am very grateful to Sunbelt Business Brokers Pacific Inc. that you gave me this opportunity to challenge myself and achieve success.

Thank you and your team for your good wishes. Madhu and I are very grateful for all your help and patience in seeing us through the bumps along the way.

It was a pleasure collaborating with you on this file and looking forward to working together again in the future.

Thank you for your assistance with completing the transaction. I am glad we reached the finished line after a long 4 month process. It has been a pleasure working with you.

It was 5 months yesterday that Bruce M., Rex M. and myself met with you and Mr. Houghton in your office in Vancouver.

At that time we were just interviewing different brokers to see who we would be most comfortable working with.

Obviously it was PBB that we chose – and once we made the decision to do the Valuation process (which took about a month), we were ready to list. From listing, to site visits, to an offer, to an acceptance, to waivers, to closing – it took only 3 months! We never, ever, would have thought this was possible.

This note is just to acknowledge the comprehension, courtesy and professionalism of Mr. Houghton throughout the whole process. It was very reassuring to know that Ian was at our side every step of the way – any time of the day/night – and any day of the week. He represents your company very well. Not sure if he enjoyed ‘losing the suit’ or his cell signal during his site visits – but I am sure he got over it.

We realize that we are not one of your larger accounts – but at no time did we ever feel that we were treated with any less respect.

Our new owner and his team seems really excited to be here and we are honoured to welcome them in to our family and to this crazy industry called Tourism.

If you ever get a chance to come up this way – please drop me a line. We would be happy to have you as our guest (as it looks like we are still going to be here for awhile).
– D.M., Hells Gate Air Team

Ian: Last year at this time was full of mixed emotions for the three of us and our families. The not knowing how things would proceed was something that concerned the three of us. I can tell you that one year later you have 3 very happy past clients. Best move we ever made and we do thank you and Pino for sticking with it for so long. I’m sure you knew there were times throughout our 3 years with you that we wondered, but in the end you guys came through and we do still thank you most every day. Best thing we ever did. I have recommended your services to a few friends who are in a similar position.

The three of us will never forget sitting in that office on Nov 30/17 with the Lawyer wondering if the deal would really complete as the clock ticked past 5PM. Now that we can talk about the entire experience more freely I’m surprised to find out how many people want to know how the process goes. If you ever need a client to be reassured or they just want to talk to someone that has been through the experience please don’t hesitate to call me.

Thank You!

Now that the sale has wrapped up and we can begin to focus on our roles in the next phase, I just wanted to let you know how impressed I am with everything that you did to make it happen for us. It’s been a long journey, and we’ve certainly spent a fair bit of time meeting, talking, and waiting for this day to finally arrive. In some ways it feels like we’ve become colleagues, and I think that’s a great testament to your professionalism and to your personality. It’s truly been a pleasure having you on “our side”. Thanks again and best wishes to you… it was a very memorable experience.
– M.S.

Pacific have played a pivotal role in our lives this past year, skillfully navigating us through to successful completion of the sale of our business. It has been such a pleasure and privilege to work with you and we are deeply grateful for all your support.

It has been an awesome journey throughout this process and I appreciate all you have done to make this transaction a success.
