Angelo Ferrara was the broker who sold my retail business. He found a very qualified buyer for me, who was perfect for the type of business I had. At first, I was reticent about selling, but now I am very happy as I have since settled into a lovely retired life.

Mr. Ferrara is one of the most qualified business evaluation and business brokers I have met in my almost 40 years of practicing law. He applies his advanced analytical skills to every situation and is always looking out for the best interests of his clients. He also possesses the most effective and unique “bedside” manner when dealing with people who are sometimes making very emotional decisions about selling businesses that were either multi-generational or those that were being sold by the founders.
David Sutton, Attorney-at-Law
I have known Angelo for approximately 20 years. We have connected through a national association of business intermediaries. We have studied our profession together in that association. Angelo has freely shared his wealth of experience with others while being a sponge for new knowledge. He never stops in his quest to learn new things and, as such, is constantly improving his practice…

I’ve known Angelo from many years ago (13-15 years) and was involved in a professional networking group together. I witnessed him to be engaging, punctual and a true professional in his business capacity. He also is a dedicated family man. Iwithout hesitation would recommend his professional services.

I would recommend Angelo Ferrara to anyone who wants to sell their business. Angelo has sold two of my companies, and is outstanding to work with.
Anna Carusos, Seller
I am a seasoned businessman and extremely pleased that you were the broker for a business I bought. You treated me with respect and helped me to complete the acquisition. I would highly recommend your services to anyone looking to buy or sell a business.
Bob Bristol, Buyer
Angelo has been a trusted friend & advisor to our business & family for many, many years. Our relationship has grown over the years. He was a trusted advisor to my father, Harvey, and became a respected advisor to my brother Glenn and I. Most recently, he helped us develop management and financial tools that helped significantly grow our business. His mantra was we “have to do more for less” and the tools he helped us develop are part of our daily practice and extremely valued.

When my health forced the sale of my business, I was glad I engaged you to represent my business. You are a true professional and conducted the process like we were partners. After agreeing to a deal and spending considerable time with a prospect, you advised me it was time to move on from him and brought me a new prospect. I was pleased that you were able to negotiate an even better deal with this buyer than we were working on and that the deal closed within a very short period of time. I would highly recommend your services and wish you continued success.
Frank Delano, Seller
You truly treated us as family, watching over our interests and providing professional guidance throughout the process. We sold our business to a large conglomerate, represented by a team of lawyers, accountants, appraisers & managers. Our deal was treated by them as an M&A transaction, with over 100 due diligence items that you helped us to compile. You were instrumental in guiding our team to navigate the process, protected our best interests and assured that we would net the most after-tax dollars. More than once you demonstrated your commitment to us, advising us to not to accept unfavorable terms offered and negotiated terms more favorable to us. We are very pleased with the outcome of our transaction and would highly recommend you to anyone thinking of selling their business.
Pat & Jim Gallagher, Sellers
You were extremely understanding in negotiating the sale of our business. The three of us had started this business from start-up and had different opinions of how we should complete the sale. You were sympathetic to each of our positions and negotiated not only with the buyer, but with each of us to achieve a successful sale. We tell all our business friends how well you treated us.
Adrienne Pizzolato, Seller
Angelo, If ever we were to have another business to sell, we would only do it with you! We trust you completely. You were so helpful to us with your years of experience and expertise. We literally knew nothing about selling a business, but you guided us through it patiently and methodically, all the while encouraging us to ask our questions which seemed stupid to us, but necessary to you. You will always be a part of our lives that we will remember fondly and embrace wholeheartedly.
