Hugo's recent testimonials

Kiri Johns

Hugo Martin was professional from beginning to end, explaining the sales and legal process every step of the way. Extremely approachable, quick to respond to phone calls, texts or emails. Hugo set realistic expectations and timelines.

Would highly recommend Hugo for any size Business sale, and I wouldn't hesitate to contact him again. 

Annette Muller

Previous Owner of Designed to Sell

I didn't come by Hugo by accident. When it was time to sell my business, I asked several very successful business owners who'd they recommend as a business broker.

Hugo sold our business within 3 weeks of it being on the Market. I first met Hugo in my store in July and the business settled in September. He sold it for near the asking price.

I would thoroughly recommend Hugo as he has the experience, understanding, systems and contacts to value and market your business.

Follow Agency

I’ve worked with Hugo for the sale of two businesses in the past five years, one hospitality venue and most recently a marketing agency. Although two entirely different businesses, Hugo’s tailored approach to the marketing and targeting of relevant prospective buyers led to two successful sales within months of listing each. His approach is hands on, consultative, and he works hard to get a great outcome - of course the price is important, but he also worked to get favourable terms of sale from handover periods and payment terms. Hugo is responsive, supportive, and clear in his communication and offers a wealth of experience that made selling the business as stress free as it could be. I would highly recommend him for anyone looking to sell their business.

Mike & Helen Grace

Previous Owners of AbFab Catering

From the outset Hugo was our only choice as broker to help sell our catering business in 2017/18. His many years' experience in the hospitality industry gives him the ability to understand both what a buyer and seller needs to bring a deal to a successful conclusion. He has the ability to recognise which buyers have potential and which are suited to the particular business on offer. Being a straight talker he lets both parties know the pros and cons in any situation. We have no hesitation in recommending him to be your broker.
