Bacco Bistro — Seattle, WA

When we searched for an appropriate agent to sell our restaurant at Pike Place market in 2008, most business brokers quickly dismissed this opportunity since the sale price was going to be only 200K. After our initial meeting with Kirk, we knew that we had found the right person for the job. Given the complexity of selling at Pike Place market, we were looking for a very specific buyer which Kirk found in less than 4 weeks. He had no hesitations in taking on this transaction, knowing well that there was a difficult landlord, financing contingencies and Pike Place Market requirements which were going to be part of this sale.

At the end it went off without a hitch. We could not have been more satisfied with everything relating to the sale and the buyer who was also represented by Kirk is extremely satisfied with the purchase. The business has grown significantly since the sale.

The one thing that impressed us most with Kirk is that he sells businesses because he has a passion for doing it, not because he has to. He has a truly genuine attitude towards putting together business deals in which everyone is satisfied.

For any future sales or purchases we would only consider Kirk Edwards.
