Whew...!, we sold the marina. It went down to the final day and it cost us additional dollars to buy our way out but the marina has another owner and we are off the hook. I am sure that you can appreciate the new year is looking very bright.
I wanted to take this opportunity, Richard, to express my sincerest appreciation for your very professional and exhausting efforts through 1983 and 1984 ill trying to help us market the marina. I am well aware of the expense you went to and I know that you were as frustrated and disappointed as we were over our inability and frankly, just bad luck, in not being able to close a deal.
Through my association with you, I have come to admire you as a true professional and would state very frankly that if I ever had another major business for sale you would be the individual I would contact to represent me. I also, and I speak for Stan and Bob too, would like to say how much we enjoyed the brief time that we had with you in our travels and customer contacts. I would only hope that sometime in the future we might have an opportunity to sit down in a more casual or social atmosphere and get to know each other better.
Richard, you gave us a very honest, sincere and professional effort, and while it may not have bourn fruit, we could not have been better represented. Thank you for everything. My best to you and your family for a most happy and prosperous future.
My kindest personal regards,
Charles E. Warren

Please feel free to copy and distribute this letter as a recommendation and commendation to your company through the efforts of you and your partners', Neil and Allen Eberlein.
Your company's professional attitude, sense of objectivity, and impeccable performance standards were evident throughout the entire process of the transaction and sale of Salem Auto Parts Co. And yet it was not a rigid, all business affair. The personal touches presented by you and your partners were invaluable in helping to make it through the inevitable trying times.
Let me know Rick, if I can be of any service to you as a future reference. Just give me a call and I'll be glad to speak with anyone to express my confidence in your reliablility and credibility as an acquisitions broker.
It was a pleasure to work with you over the past months. I look forward to perhaps working again with you in the future.

We anticipated that finding a suitable buyer for our retail seafood markets would be difficult. Some of our plant facilities were aging and our sales were declining. We did not want to invest more capital to improve our plants and expand our retail base.
Your professional approach to valuing our assets and the production of a qualified sales prospectus led us to a very qualified buyer.
Your perserverence with the buyer and their attorney certainly paid off for us. You really earned your commission on this sale and we were more than pleased to pay it.
If we can be of any help to you in the future please feel free to call us. Thanks again.
Very truly yours,
Jono Howe CEO

Congratulations on your recent sale of the Crab Broiler restaurant. The price and terms you were able to negotiate are as good as could have been expected. You should know that the former owners are not only pleased with your sales performance, but they are recommending your company to anyone who will listen.
I believe that a large part of the reason the sale came together was through your negotiation skills and attention to detail. There were many tough issues, any of which could have ruined the proposed sale. You handled the tough issues with diplomacy and tact. As you know, the amount of detail involved in the sale of a business, especially the Crab Broiler, is monumental.
Rick, I have really grown to appreciate your company's attitude about "after the sale" client services. It has been my experience with most business brokers that they disappear shortly after they are paid their sales commissions. I like the way you have been available to help my client, the Crab Broiler's former owners, with unexpected after-closing problems as well as continuing to follow through with old problems.
Again, congratulations on a job well done.

To whom it may concern;
This is an accolade for a rather remarkable person. Rick Piper recently completed a long and arduous transaction on behalf of myself and a partner in the asset sale of a small business.
He worked for us for 2 years, never wavering in the conviction that our business was viable (even when we came close to losing hope) and finally struck a deal that offers a strong possibility for the future.
Rick went beyond the call on this one and I sense he would for anything in which he truly believed. He has great connections, determination, resolve and style.
I would be ever so pleased to recommend his services.
