I’m grateful to have had the opportunity to work with Bill at Pacific Business Sales on my recent acquisition of a SoCal-based plumbing contractor. Although Bill was engaged by the seller, I was really impressed with how well he collaborated with me (the buyer) and my team to put the deal together. I cannot imagine how the process could have been any smoother than it was, and that is in large part due to Bill’s leadership in shepherding negotiations through to the closing table. Time kills deals, but Bill does a great job keeping the sale process moving on time and on schedule. He’s knowledgeable about the loan closing process, which was hugely beneficial for me (knowing what to expect) and helped to manage expectations on both sides of the process. He’s knowledgeable, experienced, and he cares - a rare combination!

Bill provides a professionalism in his ability to market and sell a business that is unparalleled. He is responsive and persistent in his efforts and an extremely pleasant person to work with. He and Cerisa both have a commanding understanding of the financial information required for a business sales transaction and are both very clear in explaining the process.Pacific Business Sales is simply the best!

I dealt with many different brokers when searching for a business and none were as professional as Bill Grunau. His listings were immaculate and he was always quick to answer any questions I had in the buying process. I would def. use him in the future for any business dealings.

Bill was the broker respecting the business I recently acquired. On the buy-side, he was highly knowledgeable, responsive, and accommodating to all aspects of the sales transaction. He also helped us tremendously with finding us financing for an SBA loan. I would recommend Bill, and I look forward to working with him and his team in the future.Dustin CarreonCEOCOI Holdings

Bill at Pacific Business Sales was able to secure me a cash buyer for my less than two year old contracting company in under 2 months.With his experience and expertise, he deftly guided me through the entire sales and escrow process. All I had to do was fill out paperwork and attend a few phone calls and meetings.His thoroughness, follow through, and industry knowledge help him get the job done, and done well.Very highly recommend!

I have nothing but praise for Bill and Cerisa Grunau of Pacific Business Sales who sold my manufacturing company earlier this year. They are very knowledgeable and every step was done with professionalism from developing the materials to present the company, screening and educating buyers (and me as well) , to contracts and closing. They were able to refer resources such legal, accounting, and financing which was a huge contribution to the success of the outcome. If you are interested in selling or buying a business, I would highly recommend you talk to Pacific Business Sales.

If I could give Pacific Business Sales 10 stars I would. We had the pleasure of working with Bill, who was extremely helpful and responsive. He addressed each and every one of my questions and was highly knowledgeable about all the rules and regulations. He guided us through the financing process swiftly and painlessly. His services were invaluable, and we don't know what we would have done without him.

After deciding on the sale of our business, we felt that finding the right Business Broker was our first challenge. We truly needed someone who could guide us through an unfamiliar process.Our selection was correct. Pacific Business Sales and Bill Grunau's Team made it possible.Bill's professionalism, knowledge of the different actions and steps to be taken; and his skills demonstrated when managing time and deadlines are "impressive".Our Orange County Electrical Contractor business was sold according to Bill's originally estimated value and timelines. As the seller, I can only express my gratitude for their commitment to excellent service; and for making a reality something that was not easily attainable.Thank you Bill and Cerisa.

5-Stars are not enough to describe the level of service, commitment and assistance you get from Bill, I'll have give them a 10-Stars review.Best Business broker in Southern California.

Bill is the best guy to deal with. He made our sale of the business so smooth. Very professional and great guy to talk to. I highly recommend him and his team.
01:00 24 Sep 20
Pleasure to work with. They made what could have been a harrowing experience buying a new business very easy.

I had a great appreciation for Pacific Business Sales specifically working with Bill, my broker, for the Electronic Signs Manufacturing acquisition. Before working with Bill, finding a trust worthy broker was a challenge. Unlike other brokers, Bill was excellent in getting the data needed for me to accurately access the business - making the Due Diligence process smooth for me and my legal team. Bill was instrumental in getting my deal closed by being the liaison between myself, the bank, and the seller.I highly recommend Pacific Business Sales.

My husband and I were fortunate that Bill and Cerisa Grunau at Pacific Business Sales were kind enough to take on the sale of a small business. They expertly shepherded us through the maze of paperwork, and brought us several potential buyers. Bill always stayed in touch through the process, and was quick to return phone calls or meet with us in person. They are both knowledgeable, friendly, and experienced. They found us a wonderful buyer, and introduced us to an escrow company that facilitated the purchase as well. We recommend Pacific Business Sales highly.

When I decided it was time to sell my company, I had no idea how to proceed, but one name kept coming up - Bill’s. Best call I could have made. Within 45 days, I had multiple offers. Bill handled everything, and kept me in the loop almost daily. I really couldn’t believe how smoothly the entire transaction went, and ended up with the perfect buyer, and just the deal we had discussed on our first meeting. If you are serious about buying or selling your company, do yourself a favor and give Bill a call.
17:54 26 May 20
Bill is a true professional. I don't know how he does it, but he always seems to be available when you need him. His communication and organization is top notch. As a buyer or a seller, you can't go wrong working with Bill. I highly recommend.
19:48 28 Dec 19
As a first time buyer myself, Bill put me at great ease and answered all of my incessant questions with clarity and patience. He walked me through what otherwise would have been an arduous process. He is very honest and forthcoming. I definitely benefited from his well of knowledge! Thanks, Bill and Pacific Business Sales!

We engaged with Bill Grunau at Pacific Business Sales to list and sell our business and within a relatively short period of time, Bill had lined up three solid offers. We were able to choose from three qualified buyers and ended up with one who was the perfect fit for the business.From start to finish, Bill was a consummate professional. Selling a business is always stressful, and Bill's experience, guidance, responsiveness and calm demeanor were a huge help in seeing the transaction through to the end.If you are considering selling a business on your own or hiring a business broker I highly recommend that you talk with Bill.

Bill Grunau of Pacific Business Sales is one of the good ones. The expertise, guidance and finally friendship Bill brought to the transaction was top notch. Without his help we never could have gotten the deal closed. It took less than 2 months to close one the best Bakeries in Southern California.He was able to guide and coach us through all aspect of the purchase. We look forward to working with Bill again soon on our next Bakery Purchase.We would highly recommend Bill and Pacific Business Sales for anyone looking for representation on the buy or sell side of a business sale.Beverly's Bakery thanks Bill and Pacific Sales.Morgan & Maria Ferris

I've been working with Bill with his business escrows for the past few years now and he is extremely knowledgeable in all aspects of buying or selling a business. Very professional and will make buying or selling a business a very pleasant and successful experience.
00:06 02 Apr 19
Bill was the broker for a business we purchased and we very much appreciated his expertise, professionalism and kindly manner. We read his book "Own Your Future: Straight Talk About How to Buy a Business and Build Your Future" and between that and conversations with him we felt well educated to make a decision and move through the process of buying a business. Although he officially was commissioned by the seller we also felt his desire to make this a good match for us and make sure it was a win-win situation for all involved. Thank you, Bill!
21:52 01 Mar 19

Bill and his staff made it as easy as it could be selling a business. I was referred to him from another business owner that had used him in the past. He gave me some good advise on prepping my business to sell. We sold it a lot faster than I had anticipated. Bill and his staffed helped me through the potholes of selling a business, to a quick and semi painless escrow.

Bill did a fantastic job navigating the problems coming from a crazy seller. It was his diligence that helped get the deal done. 2 years later, business is awesome! Thanks Bill!
17:16 28 Mar 18
I have now done 3 business transactions (one as seller, two as buyer).I met Bill on this third one. He is fantastic and is by far the best business broker I've worked with. He has an in-depth knowledge of the entire business sale process. He couples that with complete honesty and a great attitude which make it pleasant to work with him. He forecasts potential issues to help you steer around them. When issues arise, he's an absolute problem solver. He's intelligent, organized, and great at assisting in the negotiation process, too. Whether you're a buyer or seller, you will really enjoy working with him. I intend to work with him on future deals, too, and have already referred a friend to him. He's earned my highest recommendation.
22:29 16 Aug 17
Bill is highly knowledgeable, helpful and honest - qualities hard to find in the industry. Great to work with. We closed our escrow as it was agreed and he was there through the entire process. Highly recommended!
21:56 03 Aug 17
