Mr. Cliff Scheffield said of his experience working with The Stansberry Firm:
I am very pleased with The Stansberry Firm’s efforts in our recent sale of Florida Contractor Rentals. From day one, it was obvious they knew what they were doing as they outlined the process and went right to work. Gary and Carolyn brought multiple buyers to the table, gave us sound advice and stayed with us all the way through closing of the transaction, leaving no doubt they kept my best interests at the forefront throughout the process. I appreciate that we had choices as to who the buyer would be and I was able to move forward with the group that made the most sense for our employees and customers.”
Since 2011, The Stansberry Firm has closed over $150 million in transactions with strategic national and local buyers and private equity.
