Last May, when I walked away from the sale, I believed the option to sell our business was over. Plan B was kicking in. But you made it happen and we got it done! Thank you for all your hard work.

Chris was great to work with and got my business sold! I'd never sold a business so didn't know what I was doing but Chris kept things moving and made the process simple. Would definitely use him again.

Chris Cantwell is the best. Selling my business seemed impossible since I was out of the country and couldn't be in town. But Chris Cantwell did it! He handled everything for me, he was reliable, fast and very patient. He did an exceptional job from finding buyers to closing the deal. I am very happy with the service and his work! Thank you again.

Chris Cantwell was outstanding in his approach and ultimate negotiation of the sale of our business in 2018. Chris recommended a 25% increase over the suggested asking price of the two other reviewed CABI firms and we were rewarded with a 96% return of our asking price. I recommend you do your due diligence, but I suspect you may end up with Chris at Transworld. I also appreciated the relaxed manner that he handled the three partners to bring the sale home, sometimes herding cats comes to mind! Chris was on top of our introductions to potential buyers and offers. He also had great resources to round out the sale which maintained continuity and timeliness.
Thanks for shepherding us through this process. Appreciate your support and sage advice along the way. Thank you!

Chris was super valuable to me in my search and helped negotiate meetings in person when it was just more sensible for buyer and seller to meet. highly recommend and he also has a wealth of restaurants that come through on his books!

Please know how much we have appreciated working with you over the past year! You have helped navigate us through one of the most interesting times in our lives (um, selling a business is totally unlike anything we've experienced!?), and we just want to truly thank you.
I had my business listed with another broker prior to working with Chris, working with Chris and the Transworld team was like shifting into a higher gear. They work at a much higher pace.
Chris is an outstanding agent! I highly recommend him. Ethical and knowledgeable, he goes above and beyond to complete a job. I will use his services again as well as recommend him to friends and familyâ€™s. Thank you Chris! Jodie Blake

I had the opportunity to work with Chris recently on a transaction and was extremely pleased with his knowledge and professionalism. Chris insured a smooth experience and was quick to mitigate any issues that arose. I would definitely recommend Chris and would use him in the future.

Working with our broker Chris Cantwell to sell our family business was a pleasure. He is extremely professional, supportive and dialed in to many resources to help a business owner find just the right fit for a buyer for their business. Would recommend him to anyone looking to sell a business.
