Transworld is the best in buying or selling companies. Tony Keane and Katie Holditch, as well as Transworld's President, Gerry Brisson are some of the most knowledgeable and professional people I have ever worked with. I highly recommend using Transworld Business Advisors of Houston.
Shannon, Seller 2022
Katie Holditch is very measured, calm, and thoughtful in her approach to helping buyers and sellers have a successful transaction process that they can both feel good about, creating a win/win result for both parties. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Katie or Transworld to anyone because they are honest, direct, and business-oriented, keeping the end goal of their clients in mind, even when negotiations can get tense.
Deborah, Seller 2022
Steve Merritt was outstanding to deal with. From the initial contact to upcoming close Steve’s service made all the difference, with the navigation of and SBA component to affiliate issues he guided my wife and I through. I highly recommend Steve Merritt and in fact have already done so to a friend.
C, Seller 2022
Bobbi Coffey is amazing. She helped me find a wonderful business and I will continue working with her in the future!
Max, Buyer 2022
My husband and I worked with Wayne Blease on the purchase of a small business. He was exceptional to work with. Very professional, knowledgeable, and always responsive. He still checks in every now and again, which shows his level of commitment to his clients. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking to buy/sell. It was an absolute pleasure working with him!
Courtney, Buyer 2022
What a wonderful and professional company to work with. They got a great deal done for us. It was a pleasure to work with Bob, he did such a great job for us, we could not thank him enough!
Sina, Seller 2021
Working with Katie and the team at Transworld was a great experience. I had been looking at buying a business for 2 years. During that time I worked with several other brokers and brokerages. Katie and her team were the most knowledgeable, most professional, and most helpful. Their responsiveness and overall communication are best in class. This was evident during that last week leading up to closing the deal. They were available morning, noon, and night (literally), working to make sure the deal was closed. Thank you Katie and Tony!
John, Buyer 2022
Mark was extremely professional and helpful to me throughout the process of selling my nail salon. He took calls at all hours of the day and even to midnight without hesitation. I am grateful we found an agent that is willing to put in the extra effort to help close the deal when we needed to sell fast. I highly recommend Mark as a business broker to anyone needing assistance.
T. Do, Seller 2022
Steve was very professional and so helpful in listing and promoting the sale of our store. He was prompt about answering questions and responding to our concerns. I am not sure the sale would have happened without his assistance. I would strongly recommend Steve and will use him again on any future sales.
Nixon Family, Seller 2022
Wayne is very knowledgeable and patient! He takes the time to explain the process to both the buyer & seller. We are happy with our business deal and look forward to more in the future!
Zenobia, Buyer 2021
Awesome experience all around even through the pandemic!!! Request Ron Hankamer as your broker to buy/sell your business. He's the best!
Andrew, Seller 2021
What a wonderful and professional company to work with. They got a great deal done for us. It was a pleasure to work with Bob, he did such a great job for us, we could not thank him enough!
Sina, Seller 2021
Wayne at Transworld was terrific throughout our entire transaction, always quick to respond to an email or a phone call. Very knowledgeable about his craft, brought a sense of calm and professionalism to a sometimes difficult deal with lots of moving parts and novice participants such as myself. Will definitely work with him for any of my future needs in this area.
Art, Seller 2021
Let me start by saying that Ron Hankamer is great to work with. He helped us secure the right buyer for our restaurant and guided us through the entire process.
This was our first time selling a business. If we had to do it again, we would definitely call on Ron to help.
Tai, Seller 2021
Bobbi Coffey was the Seller's Broker for us. She was extremely helpful in guiding me through the purchasing process. This was the first business I have bought and it went smoothly. I had no issues at all. I received all the information I needed from the seller. Everything was explained to me. I will be looking to Transworld Business for future opportunities. Bobbi Coffey was a great agent to work with. I would love to work with her again in the future.
Robert, Buyer 2021
Shathi worked very hard to get my business sold. It was a pleasure to work with him. Would definitely recommend using Transworld.

Wayne: Committed and diligent. Patient and understanding and has a good knowledge of his job.
Grace , Seller 2021
Tony: Thank you very much for your help and patience during the purchase process of Aline's. Your professionalism and knowledge are amazing and we certainly hope to do business with you in the future!
Rupa, Seller 2021
As a Merger and Acquisition lawyer, I highly recommend Austin Zhao, because he is the deal maker, the best one I have ever known based on my years of M&A experience in both China and the US.
Hongbin B. , Professional 2021
Steve Merritt could not have gone more above and beyond to help us sell our business. At time when I thought it was impossible to sell a bar, during the COVID-19 pandemic, Steve helped us sell in the 11th hour! We couldn't have done it without them and I would recommend Transworld and Steve Merritt any day!
Robert S. , Seller 2021
Robert Latham at Transworld represented the sellers of the first business I purchased as an independent entrepreneur. While Bob did not represent me, he was professional and dealt fairly with me. Covid-19 certainly complicated the transaction, but Bob worked to keep the deal on track and the parties were ultimately successful.
Robert M., Buyer 2021
Steve Merritt crushed it. We were extremely impressed throughout the entire process. Great communicator, highly recommended.
Sam English, Seller 2021
We have recently sold our business with Transworld and our broker was Ron Hankamer. I have to say that he came through in the 9th inning, got a buyer to the table, and had a really smooth close. Highly recommend!!!
Bryan D , Seller 2021
Transworld Business Advisors made the acquisition of my business smooth and all expectations were met or exceeded while using Ron Hankamer.
Paul J, Buyer 2021
Steve Merritt has been extremely helpful and very professional and I would highly recommend him...
Janet M. , Seller 2020
I have known Wayne Blease for several years and feel confident referring my clients who are looking to purchase/sell a business to Wayne because I know that he will take care of them in a professional manner.

Syed did an amazing job in facilitating the transaction and great advising service overall. Thank you Syed.
D. Patel, Seller 2020
Bobbi was great throughout the whole process. We appreciated her professionalism and she got things done in a timely manner. I would recommend her!
Trey W. , Seller 2020
Bobbi was a pleasure to work with and assisted in all parts of the transaction while being fair and informative. I couldn’t asked for more!
Ron P. , Seller 2020
We highly recommend them 100%. Pedro was a great advisor. He was on top of all details.
Andreina G. , Buyer 2020
Thank you Quoc Pham for your assistance in selling my business. Your professionalism and aggressive approach was key in selling my business under 6 months of listing. I haven't known you for over 3 years and worked closely with you for the last 6 months on my business sale, I consider you my friend and will sure stay in touch. I will certainly recommend you to friends and family.
Pius O. , Seller 2020
Colin Gildroy was great. Our transaction was very complicated but Colin was able to keep everything on track and get the deal done. This transaction would NOT have closed without Colin’s persistence and commitment. Colin focused on details and worked diligently to coordinate with all the people on both sides. I would recommend to anyone that wants to sell their business to use Colin Gildroy at Transworld Business Advisors.
S.F. Chip H. , Seller 2020
Working with Ron was a true pleasure in getting my business sold. It took nearly two years to do so, but his persistence and patience was what I needed. A true professional who became a friend of mine. Hats off to Transworld for having him on the payroll. Thanks Ron and I'm already enjoying my free time and new beginning. Duane.
Duane, Seller 2019
Bob Latham did an excellent job for us. Very straightforward and set realistic expectations for our sale. He is very responsive. I would certainly use them again.
Mike S. , Seller 2020
Shathi and Ron made our business transaction so smooth and easy. It was awesome working with these two professionals. They were so helpful and knowledgeable in everything. I will recommend them to everyone any day.
Hector B. , Seller 2020
We have been trying to sell our business with another broker in 2018 with no success. We hired Lou form Transworld in March to market our business and he managed to get us an offer in just 3 months... after few showings. We certainly recommend Lou to any seller or buyer.
Helen B. , Seller 2019
I recently inquired about purchasing a Dry Cleaners, and to be honest I was a little unsure at first as to which area I was going to target. I then reached out to Quoc Pham as I saw he had several Dry Cleaners listings online in the Houston and surrounding areas. Not only was he able to find me a great location, but with his knowledge and business experience in the industry, he was able to share some valuable perspectives that I may have overlooked. With that being said, I feel confident that I have found a true gem. At no point did I feel pressured to make a decision as he insisted that he wanted both sides to be comfortable with the deal, which I found highly professional as it gave me peace of mind to make a sound decision. I highly recommend Quoc Pham and Transworld to anybody in search of a great business as the entire process was very thorough and very professional.
Francisco H. , Buyer 2019
I had an awesome learning experience during buying a restaurant with Transworld Business Advisors of Houston. Mr. Lou Sabbagh helped through the transition. He was very knowledgeable, passionate, and helpful. This was my first time buying a restaurant. At first, I was not comfortable going through providing documents and doing paperwork. Mr. Lou took his time and explained to me the process step by step. He put me at ease patiently and supported me throughout the transition. Mr. Lou is passionate about his position, extremely friendly and professional.
I highly recommend him and doing business with Transworld Business Advisors.
Ali, Buyer 2020
I have experienced such a high level of professionalism in dealing with Transworld. My business was on the market for a couple of years, sometimes it just takes some time for the right person to come along. The company was very diligent about remaining optimistic and continually working hard on getting my business sold. My rep, Lou, was fabulous to work with as well. He persisted and brought many options to me, until I was finally satisfied with my option. He is truly a gentleman, professional, and extremely knowledgeable about the field of selling businesses. He learned about me, my expectations, what I was looking for. He was patient, supportive and guided me the whole way from the beginning to end of the the whole process. He was always available and accessible, and responded to me in a timely manner and always made sure I was informed and clearly understanding every stage of process as well. I love doing business with Transworld, and my rep Lou. They worked above and beyond my expectations. If I had another business to sell I would definitely call on them again, and would absolutely refer them to any and everyone looking to sell their business. Thank you to Lou and the whole Transworld team for you support and guidance, and success at selling my business.
Terri F. , Seller 2019
I was referred to Austin Zhao through a banker, and then bought a manufacture through Transworld Houston team. Both Austin Zhao and Gerry Brisson guided me through the purchasing process, treated me very fair while they represented the seller to sell the business to me. Especially, as an immigrant, I don't know too much about American business culture. When I have issues in the business operations after I took over the business, Austin has been always my first contact point to call, and he has been helped me a lot in solving problems through his experience in operating business and his broad connections and resources in the communities. Now I don't treat Austin Zhao as a business broker, but my business advisor. I sold and bought some other businesses before through brokers, I can tell that Transworld is the best business broker among them. Austin and Gerry are the experts, very professional and experienced. Highly recommended!
Hunter H. , Seller 2019
I’ve had the pleasure of working with Shathi Govender on several business acquisitions. From my initial contact with Shathi, it was extremely clear to me that he was honest, thorough and 100% focused on providing exceptional service and communications. Buying and selling a business requires patience, understanding, and experience. Shathi’s extensive knowledge with the financial aspect of the transaction along with being a seasoned pro with Mergers and Acquisitions gives Shathi the ability to work all aspects of the buy/sell process. If you are considering selling or buying a business then you truly could not be in better hands by reaching out and engaging with Shathi Govender.
Utpal S. , Buyer 2019
Transworld and Bobbi were a blessing to work with. They helped us navigate the complicated world of business sales to achieve a win-win for us, the seller, and the buyer...a mutually beneficial sale where everyone is happy!
Doug G. , Seller 2020
Quoc Pham, Business Advisor, at Transworld was very helpful. The service was incredible. I have deal with many business broker and company but this one was way far the best. Quoc understand Dry Clean business and know how to value the company. He worked very hard to get the right buyer who can take my dad's business and the employee's right way. I am very much grateful for the partnership and decision my dad and I made with Quoc and Transworld. Thank you
Tousif A. , Buyer 2019
Gerry and his team were AWESOME!! Our transaction was very complicated and disrupted by the government shutdown, but Gerry and his team were able to keep everything on track and get the deal done. This transaction would NOT have closed without Gerry's persistence and commitment. The team's commitment and focus on details was phenomenal. I would recommend anyone that wants to sell their business to use Transworld Business Advisors.
Kevin H. , Seller 2019
I had the pleasure of working with Lou Sabbagh from Transworld Business Advisors. He was very knowledgeable and helpful in guiding my husband and I through this process. This was our first experience getting into the business world and Lou was able to answer all our questions as well as ask the questions we weren't aware we needed to ask. I would absolutely work with Lou again and would reccomend him to anyone trying to buy or sell a business.
Alysha G. , Seller 2019
We had a wonderful experience with Transworld. Austin Zhao is one of thr best agent in the company. His dedication towards both seller and buyer is beyond our expectations. He is very professional and patient throughout thr transaction. We purchased a legitimate business from him. Financials are flawless. We are lucky to have Austin as our broker. Will definitely work with him again in the future .
Jin B. , Buyer 2019
Austin was exceptional in facilitating the sale of our business. We had multiple offers in a much shorter time than anticipated. He is excellent at bridging the gap between buyer and seller. And he always made himself available whenever needed. I would highly recommend him and Transworld.
Leah A. , Seller 2019
I was on the verge of closing my retail store due to decreasing sales. I contacted Paul at Transworld and he was in my store the very next day! He had my store SOLD in 3 weeks at a price I couldn't believe. Keep in mind, I was ready to lock my doors and walk away...even leaving the remaining inventory! So thanks to Paul, I can now say I SOLD my business instead of I CLOSED my business.Now I look forward to my early retirement with a few extra dollars in my pocket! Thanks Paul!
Greg M. , Seller 2019
I had an opportunity to work with Shathi G. in a project recently and I must say I'm very impressed. He is extremely knowledgeable and talented, whether my question was quick and simple or very complex he always took the time to listen and get the right answer. He is an industry expert.
Luis G. , Buyer 2019
Carmen, I am appreciative of the effort that you put into selling our last three childcare centers for us. You kept us informed throughout the process, and I was impressed with the way you educated yourself about the inner workings of the childcare business. The coordination that you kept between the buyer and ourselves helped to bring it all together smoothly at the end. I would definitely recommend you to anyone buying or selling a business. Best to you!
Rita K. , Buyer 2019
We worked with Shathi Govender for the purchase of a flooring home design center. Our experience was nothing less than amazing from start to finish. He is extremely knowledgeable in various fields and was able to assist us every step of the way from analyzing the business to helping us secure the financing. He has been a consultant rather than a broker, more so, a family friend we can count on for professional advice.
Rahim R. , Buyer 2019
Carmen, thank you so much for helping me buy my daycares. Thank you for caring and making sure all my concerns were responded to and fixed; for the encouragement; for rooting for and giving me sound advice. I recommend TW and especially you Carmen.
Thandiwe G. , Seller 2019
Shathi Govender's integrity and experience allowed me to make the right business decision and was very supportive. He went above and beyond to make the final agreement happen. I highly recommend him!
Lisa T. , Buyer 2019
I would like to thank Bobbi Coffey for the excellent process of selling my business. I would love for her to work on my future deals.
Damian H. , Seller 2019
Working with Gerry was a pleasure as our sell was very difficult and his professionalism and diligence was the only thing that got it finalized. I would highly recommend this company.
Roger D. , Seller 2019
Ron did an excellent job helping me find the business of my dreams. I highly recommend him for any future business purchases.
Willie J. , Buyer 2019
Gerry and his team done a great job to help us purchased a business. They are very professional business brokers. Highly recommend.
Frank W. , Seller 2018
Transworld is a professional business broker, that sells businesses in a fast and safe way. As a business owner, I wisely choose this company. More wisely choose Austin Zhao to be my agent. He was very professional, fast, and efficient. Austin Zhao has full knowledge on how to find a buyer, and how to communicate. I sold my restaurant in less than 2 months. In fair price as well. If one day I need buy a business. No need to say. Austin Zhao will be my agent as well. Reliable person. Professional business broker. He knows what he is doing.
Susan Q. , Seller 2019
I must say that my wife and I have looked at several businesses that were represented by Business Brokers. Once we met with Lou who was representing a business owner for a business we were interested in buying, and all we have to say is WOW! Lou services are impeccable! He asked every question that we had and also pointed us in the right direction. For any individuals that are looking for new ventures in life there's always a sense of fear when you realize that you don't know what you don't know. Lou made sure that we knew everything we needed to make an accurate decision. I have to say if you ever looking to purchase a business, Lou is the type of individual that you want to work along with. My wife and I HIGHLY recommend him. Thanks Lou!!!
Emile S. , Buyer 2019
I have 2 separate transactions and many different inquiries with Transworld over the last 1.5 years. They have always been helpful, professional, and cater to my needs. I have been dealing with Austin primarily. He is able to propose deals that is suitable to my needs and also assist me well throughout the process of due diligence and even after closing. I will definitely recommend Transworld and Austin to anyone looking to buy a small/medium business. If I am looking to do any deal in future, I will definitely give them a call.
