Managing Director,

I had the pleasure of meeting and dealing with Jim Chapman at Resort Brokers nearly four years ago during the sale process of our first Quest business. Having being so pleased with the way Jim dealt with the first sale, I approached Jim to sell my next Quest business where again Jim delivered the sale with excellent results. I found Jim a true Gentleman and professional. Jim's communication was consistent and advise during the sale process was invaluable putting my mind at ease and delivering me a stress free sale. I would highly recommend Jim Chapman to sell your business and I will certainly approach Jim to sell my next business. Thanks Jim, good luck and keep up the great work that you do!
