I have worked with a number of other brokers in evaluating businesses to purchase, but have found no one better than Horizon Business Brokers. They are very thorough, patient and knowledgeable about the market. I would highly recommend Horizon to potential buyers and sellers.
I recommend the professional services of Mr. Dustin Zeher and his company, Horizon Business Brokers, LLC. Mr. Zeher represented me in the recent sale of my company in an effective, speedy and professional manner. His assistance and efforts on my behalf were exemplary, being both fair and professional to me as a seller and also on behalf of the buyer. I would recommend him and Horizon Business Brokers’ services on either side of the transaction.”
Horizon Business Brokers proved to be professional, informed and diplomatic in ensuring a smooth discussion, acquisition and transition period. Although I was the buyer and Horizon was dually representing the Seller and me, they went out of their way to make sure my issues and/or questions were resolved in a timely manner. I can recommend Horizon Business Brokers without reservation.
After starting and running a very successful business for seven years in Prince William County, it was time for us to retire. We had spoken to many business brokers, but when we spoke to Horizon Business Brokers we were very impressed. We listed our business with them and they found the perfect buyer for us at the price our business was worth. We would recommend them to anyone who wants to buy or sell a business.
Working with Horizon Business Brokers was an absolute pleasure! They were wonderful at explaining every step of the selling process and in helping me to adequately price my business. I actually learned a few mistakes I made in originally purchasing my business from things Horizon explained in what a buyer would be looking for. And I certainly can’t forget his always upbeat and positive personality. They were always readily accessible and full of words of encouragement. The broker, Mr. Zeher, was truly a wonderful person to work with and I even gained a great friend out of the process!
When we began working with Dustin and Horizon Brokers, LLC he promised that he would work hard and endlessly until he sold our business. To our surprise and joy, in less than 3 weeks Dustin had a potential buyer who eventually ended up purchasing the business! Throughout the process, Dustin displayed a sincere concern for not just selling our business, but for everyone involved. We were absolutely pleased with his professionalism and the excellent manner in which he closed the deal in such a short period of time. The entire transaction was painless and so smoothly executed that we could hardly believe all of the actions had been completed! I would strongly recommend Dustin and Horizon Brokers, LLC to anyone wishing to sell or buy a business.
I have found Dustin Zeher to be very professional. He is quick at dealing with matters, precise, honest, frank, knowledgeable and helpful. From a buyer’s perspective, Dustin’s approach has been just what I needed.
I met Dustin Zeher at a Chamber of Commerce function and have since then worked with him for over two years by contract and some handshake. At times, within the succession of potential buyers that he brought to the table, there were several challenges, but Dustin was a real positive presence through it all. His responses were immediate, service oriented and affirming. He reached into his office of resources and his ‘legwork’ made a lot of the process very smooth for me. Now that the sales are final, I will miss him as communication and connection was sometimes daily.
Dustin has been very helpful throughout the whole process. Even though he was representing the seller, he was always very forthcoming in providing the best possible advice to us (buyers). He made himself available even during his vacation and promptly answered any calls/emails to address any concerns. We navigated both the business and real estate purchase negotiations (6 months) and Dustin had a big role in facilitating that. We will definitely talk to him for our next acquisition.
I have bought a number of small businesses over the last 15 years and Dustin Zeher was the most reliable, trust worthy, and thorough broker I have ever dealt with. I purchased my current business which is thriving in Arlington Virginia and Dustin helped guide me every step of the way. He has also been very helpful after the sale with providing documents that I needed for my tax returns. I would highly recommend working with Dustin on any project as he is someone who truly looks out for your best interest, not just another sale!
I just wanted to send you a quick note and thank you for all of your efforts with respect to the last three transactions we have worked on. Your attention to detail, tenacity with which you required information be produced and provided to us, as well as your ability to understand difficult issues between buyer and seller and reach compromise, were critical to get our transaction closed. I have worked with many advisors over my 30 year business career and your skill sets and demeanor are essential to having successful transactions. I look forward to working on the next one together.
I am writing to highly recommend Horizon Business Brokers and Dustin Zeher. After ten years, my business partner and I made the tough decision to sell our business. Finding a competent business broker was a necessity for us. We analyzed, researched and interviewed several local business brokerage firms. However, Horizon set themselves apart by sending us the incredible and effective Dustin Zeher. He was a business enthusiast, energetic, responsive and effective. Dustin’s warm personality, personal touch, and attention to detail made the process effortless. Dustin’s combination of skill, experience and intuition is exactly what we needed to get us the offer we wanted. Dustin’s ambition and tenacity even got the deal closed within 90 days. My expectations weren’t just met, they were exceeded. I will recommend Horizon and Dustin to anyone seeking a competent and trustworthy business brokerage firm and agency.
Dustin did an outstanding job for us during the process of selling our small business in Falls Church, Virginia. He was able to bring several interested buyers to check our small business out and one of these interested buyers eventually purchased our business. We were in touch with Dustin from the time we signed the contract until closing. When I contacted Dustin with any requests or questions he took care of them in a timely manner and always answered all the questions we had. He made sure all of the paperwork was completed and properly done. We couldn’t have been more pleased with another broker. Dustin is a very positive, patient person and pleasant to deal with. If we ever buy or sell another business, he would be the person we would want to handle the job.
My husband and I purchased our first business in 2013. We were new to everything that purchasing and running a business entails. Horizon made the process as smooth as possible and in a timely fashion. Our broker was always available when we had last minute questions. Since we were so unexperienced, we relied on Horizon for everything. Their knowledge, professionalism and flexibility far exceeded our expectations. If we ever needed to sell or purchase another business Horizon would be the first company we would contact!
From understanding the value of my business, to setting up the sale, to working with potential buyers, to closing the sale, working with Dustin at Horizon Brokers was smooth and easy. It took just 3 months to sign a purchase agreement, and even with tricky government paperwork, we closed the sale just a few months after that! I recommend Dustin Zeher at Horizon Business Brokers to everyone who asks me how I sold my small business so quickly!
To whom it may concern Dustin Zeher, was a huge asset to the purchasing process of my business. He was prompt and consistent throughout the entire purchasing process. He is a true professional and cares about his customer. Dustin made me feel comfortable and took time to answer my questions no matter how early or how late. I would recommend Dustin to anyone and I will use him in the future when I’m ready to purchase a new business or sell any of my current businesses.
