What our clients say

" I was extremely happy with the service I received from Simon Norton at Bristol Business Brokers. From the start Simon guided me through the whole process to a successful completion."

Mark Mclean, Mclean & Co

"I would like to thank you for assisting us in acquiring Small Business Accountancy Company Limited. We really appreciate your honesty and advice. Also, the way you were able to solve problems as and when they came up. Your professional manner made the whole acquisition seem very easy."

Grant Hutton the new owner of the Small Business Accountancy Company Ltd

"After running a successful restaurant business in Bristol, we were ready to move on to other interest and allow a new business acquirer to take it forward. I personally knew what an excellent reputation Bristol Business brokers has within the Southwest. Paul and the team made the process seamless from start to finish. We sold the business within 21 days; Paul got us a good deal and we can now focus on new ventures"


"Really pleased with the way Paul handled the sale of my business. From the beginning Paul was very helpful, experienced and had valuable advice, he made sure that I achieved the best price for my business. Paul kept me updated regularly during the whole process and I found him to be a very professional and good negotiator."

Nicola Bridges

"I was supported by Bristol Business Brokers through every stage of the business purchase process from enquiry through to successful completion"

Ben Newby

"After our previous experience with a broker, Simon and his team were a breath of fresh air. Whilst we had reservations initially, the team at Bristol Business Brokers gave us confidence that the market was there and delivered a suitable buyer within our desired timeframes."

Roger Chubb

"As my first experience using a business broker, I am very satisfied with the results. Simon and his team showed perseverance throughout and hit the ground running once more when the first deal fell through."

Riz Careem

"The communication was excellent throughout and we were kept up to date on the progress of negotiations once a potential buyer was found. Unlike our previous broker, they seemed genuinely passionate about finding a buyer for our business."

Roger Chubb

"Simon and his team were very interactive throughout the process and kept me updated on any new developments in what is a complicated climate."

Rodney Tanton

"Having three businesses to choose from was an aspect of Bristol Business Broker’s service that we valued greatly – giving us the opportunity to compare factors such as turnover, profitability, ease of acquisition, clients and more to ensure that we made the right decision."

Phil Jones

"A huge thank you to you for your support over the last year or so. I remember being at a BNI meeting years ago when you were running your exit planning company and I was thinking, ''I really hope to be giving that chap a call one day to sell my business''. Well it eventually happened! "

Amy -Gym Owner Bristol

"“After a poor previous experience with another business broker, I was reluctant to put too much faith in the process and initially took any positive news with a pinch of salt. However, Bristol Business Brokers have changed my opinion entirely.” “I couldn’t speak more highly of Paul, who was always on the end of the phone to give updates and offer advice, whether it was 8 at night or 6 in the morning. Even when there was a buyer showing interest, Paul always had a backup plan in case the negotiations did not lead to an agreement being made.” “Overall my experience was terrific. I’m extremely satisfied with the service provided by the team at Bristol Business Brokers and would recommend them to anyone that is looking to sell their business.” "

Steve – Owner, Vinyl Value

"I just wanted to drop you a line to let you know that completion has gone through today. I also wanted to thank you for all of your help and advice along the way and to let you know that I would highly recommend you to anyone that indicates to me they would be looking to sell their business or buy a business etc."

Tim – Your Profit Coach

"Our experience with Bristol Business Brokers was excellent from the offset. We knew that we were looking for something slightly different to most sellers in that we cared deeply about who took on the business after us; Simon was extremely understanding of this and worked closely with us to capture what we were looking for in a person.” “Despite the challenges we faced along the way, Simon and his team persevered and were always on hand to reassure us. We were always able to speak with somebody on the phone who could make things happen rather than just pass on a message.” “Overall, we are delighted with our experience and would highly recommend Bristol Business Brokers to anyone looking to sell their business in the care sector"

"“After having a poor experience with a broker before, I was hesitant about engaging with another, but Bristol Business Brokers proved to be a breath of fresh air. As well as explaining everything in a jargon-free way, they supported me at every stage of the deal, helping me to navigate many potentially expensive and time-consuming pitfalls; I wouldn’t have been able to do this without them! The service was also extremely personal and friendly; they thought about the needs of myself and the business, rather than just focusing on the sale. This meant that they knew exactly the kind of buyer I was looking for and so found a buyer with similar values. I am extremely happy with the outcome of the deal and enjoying my new role at Bundle Bean. I would recommend Bristol Business Brokers to anybody looking to sell their business”"

Emily – Founder, Bundle Bean
