I first approached Mr. Williams for a business he advertised. As the seller’s agent, Mr. Williams was very fair to me and provided me a very detailed and insightful information package. With over 100 pages of material, I learned a lot about the business from many different angles. I felt comfortable enough that I wanted to drive down to Portland to see the business right away. After evaluating many business opportunities, I must say that Mr. Williams’ marketing package was the best one I have seen. He put a lot of work into the package and demonstrated excellent knowledge of the business. I would highly recommend Mr. Williams as a seller’s agent.

I have dealt with a number of brokers . . . You are the best broker I have ever come across. Very smart, knowledgeable and passionate... all great traits for a person in your position.
(Codiligent is) exceptional at providing clear and concise information to a buyer that is considering the purchase of a business. You are honest and transparent without disclosing private information. You also are very good at relating the “right” information illustrating the real world implications of a business purchase and creative ways to negotiate a win-win situation between the parties you represent.
I recently referred Eric to a client of mine that is considering a potential exit in the next three to five years. Rather than talk to them about how great his company is, he engaged my client in a confidential discussion of tangible steps they should be taking NOW in order to maximize their exit options and ultimate sales proceeds in the future while at the same time, helping to ensure their business succeeds after their exit.
Eric brings the technical resources and analytical acumen of mid and large market acquisition and disposition services to the small company market. Too often in the small plan market you find company write ups that read more like a real estate listing rather than a hard analysis of the current financials of the business as well as a reasoned projection of the future of the company.
I highly recommend Eric and Codiligent to any company executive or owner who is considering their options to either exit or expand a business.
