I have known and worked with John for the past year and a half. John is rich with experience, knowledge, and deal creativity. He is well connected in the Chicagoland M&A space, has solid SBA and Conventional banking relationships, and most importantly knows how to get a deal across the closing line.

I have been impressed with John’s expertise, his creativity, and his overall sense of urgency…

John just gets things done. In my opinion, you will be hard pressed to find a more energetic, dynamic, and/or knowledgeable business broker than John.

We are just wrapping up our obligations to the new owners of Judy’s Quilt ‘n’ Sew in Hampshire and cannot thank you enough for your fine work in helping us complete this sale. Frankly without your patience, business insight and guidance in these tough economic times, we would not have had a successful sale of both our business and building.

We are now getting on with our future plans and have recently purchased a new home in North Carolina. Of course, we still have a residence in the Chicago area, but hope to sell that in the coming months.

Again thank you and best wishes for your future success.

Stenzel Graphic Arts, Inc. had the opportunity two years ago to use the services of AAA Venture Business Brokers Ltd. Mr. John A. Mikaelian needed to determine the value of Stenzel Graphic
Arts in order to proceed with a buy out of one of the principals.

We are very pleased with the professional way our request and needs were handled in
regards to the valuation, appraisal and recommendations for financing. We gladly
recommend AAA Venture Business Brokers Ltd. to any one who need the sendees of the Business
Broker House and Business Valuator.
