Testimonials


“I have been in the market to acquire a business for the past few months. In that time, I have worked with several business brokers and Neumann & Associates have been one of the best to work with. They were extremely responsive and the confidential memorandum for the business I was looking at, was the best I have received.

“Thank you Aaron for all of your help in getting a valuation for my business. For the past 10 years, I have been the owner of a business that has been around for nearly 100 years. The valuation gave me a clear picture of where my business is at this time, and will help me plan for the next 10 years. I appreciate your guidance and support through the process.

I am a new client of your company and I am looking at possible staffing acquisitions in the East Coast. I have been working with your staff for about a week now and I wanted to let you know that you have a great operation. The emails and the documents that I receive at every stage in the process are complete and there is no guess work. I have been working with Karin in your office and her follow-up has been great but I get a feeling that everyone in your office is probably that way too. Thank you and best regards

“Gary made us comfortable with the selling process from the beginning and the valuation was very professional and insightful. The ANA team worked creatively and diligently to overcome many obstacles – thanks to their drive and knowledge, we were able to close our sale in a timely manner. If the opportunity arose, we would most definitely use ANA again and we gladly recommend them without any reservations whatsoever.

Karin, you guys represent by far the most serious and attractive businesses I’ve come across and I’ve seen dozens and dozens by now.
Miguel R,

I recently acquired a company represented by A Neumann and Associates. While Achim and Gary represented their client (not me), I nevertheless appreciated their ability to offer a clear Offering Memorandum and then manage an extremely complicated sales process to a successful completion. I would not hesitate to recommend them to a friend looking to sell his business.
Steve S
Business investor – February 2017

I am very pleased that I chose A Neumann & Associates to represent me in selling my firm. The valuation process allowed me to control the transaction and Achim and Gary were very professional every step of the way.
Kevin Kazimar
Business Seller, Rental Equipment Company – January 2017

Gary, thank you again for all your hard work and information regarding the valuation. This has certainly been an eye opening experience.
Linda L.
Business Owner – December 2016

I’ve known Achim Neumann for years, and referred businesses to him. He’s the founder of A Neumann & Associates, headquartered in Atlantic Highlands. Uniquely among the business brokers I’ve met over the decades, Achim comes from an investment banking background, and it shows in how he approaches the sale of businesses. They are head-and-shoulders above anyone else, and I would recommend no other.
Joe Worth, Partner
Certified Business Transition Expert™, B2B CFO® – May 2016

Our firm engaged A Neumann & Associates 4 years ago to get a handle on the value of our business in preparation for sale. Gary Herviou did a tremendous job learning about our business and determining what metrics would contribute to better valuation. His advice on where to focus attention provided a strategic piece of the puzzle needed for a successful sale. I highly recommend A Neumann & Associates to any business owner.
Peter Bergquist
Seller, IT Services Company – April 2016

Thank you again for a highly informative workshop/seminar yesterday! Excellent information and very well presented… I am sure my friend Al will be using your services to get organized and sell his business, as we were very impressed with your knowledge, staff, and network.
Jeff Cohen
Advisor – February 2016

Achim and Gary did an excellent job giving my Rutgers MBA students insight into mid-market M&A, especially from the sell side. Their client focus, thoughtful ethics, and good humor came through clearly in a highly interactive session. I look forward to having them back on campus.
Dr. Doug Miller
Associate Professor, Management & Global Business, Rutgers Business School – January 2016

Yesterday’s presentation was outstanding. Not only was it informative, it showed the true nature of a professional team at A Neumann & Associates.
Mark Kapelushnik
Director, Grand Bank – November 2015

Our experience with Michael Feite and A. Neumann & Associates was very positive and professional. The insights, guidance, access to resources, and personal commitment to our deal provided during our engagement were exactly what we wanted. We recommend anyone or any firm needing the services of a professional Merger & Acquisition firm to consider A. Neumann & Associates.
Jim B.
Biotechnology Industry – September 2015

I was very impressed by your system and the presentation of information as well as the inclusion of an appraisal. I would have saved a lot of time if the other firms did half the work you do.
Sheldon R.

Steve, thank you for your valuable assistance. I appreciate being able to confidentially and confidently discuss business valuations with you.

Tom Buchas
President Active Learning Centers, LLC – March 2015

With a family owned business, there are emotional ties that sometimes blur the best decisions for the business. Gary was able to handle the situation with empathy and his knowledge made what could be a tearful discussion, filled with opportunity.
Heather Miller
CEO, Hybrid Interactive – March 2015

Thank you for the detailed information that you provided. I wish I could count on such clear, thorough documentation from all of the deals I look at!!!
Mark D.
Investor, Power Supplies Company – August 2014

We are dealing with a lot of M&A advisers, and very often we don’t get phone calls returned or the proper documents. This firm always follows up and is very diligent in its preparation and introduction. You [referring to the seller] picked the right advisors.
Bruce Hartman
Investor & former CFO Footlocker – February 2014

A lot of my associates that I’ve dealt with for a number of years are hearing that I sold the business and I’m telling them how happy I was with the service that you provided for me.

I know you guys do your due diligence BEFORE the deal, not like all the other junk around there … the bad news is, that your deals are very good and they go so darn fast. Next time I will be responding immediately…”

Jeannie Angelo
Investor – B2B Service Business – February 2012

We never believed that any firm representing our business would be able to bring so many qualified buyers to us as your firm did. And best of all, our transaction was all done in confidence – neither our employees nor our customers learned anything about the transaction throughout the process. I would recommend your firm to any business owner who wants to engage the experts to position their business to attract the best purchaser.”
Jane G.
Seller, Consulting Practice – June 2011

… I just picked up our final payment on the business from Jim. Just wanted to thank you once again for finding us a good buyer. That sale was huge in our lives and you will always be the hero to me…”
Paula Long
Seller, HVAC Facility – February 2010

… In spending about a year searching for a small business, I have found it frustrating at times dealing with brokers. You contact them on listings only to wait for responses that never come. After many listings I ran into Achim Neumann at Neumann and Associates. When I first contacted them I was finally surprised at a level of service. Neumann and Associates were quick to respond. They listened and worked hard toward finding me a good match. I would recommend Achim Neumann and his company. They even have a newsletter…”
Doug Kelly
Investor, Retail – November 2008

… I had been looking for a business for 2 ½ years until Mr. Neumann located the right one for me … throughout all this time we had looked at different ones, and Mr Neumann was very helpful in giving me advice…”

Jim Aridas
Purchaser, Contracting Business – March 2005

… We wanted a career change and Mr. Neumann presented different options to us. He explained everything to us in great detail. Best of all, the sale was held completely confidential and none of our employees knew about it, or left later on…”
David Long
Seller, HVAC & Plumbing Company – March 2005

… we bought a business in a very highly regulated environment… Mr Neumann assured that the seller provided us with all the documents and he was very helpful in closing the deal…”
