Why Clients Recommend Us

During the search for a buyer for our business we dealt with Gwill Evans at Gunner & Co. Gwill handled our case with professionalism and was always on hand to answer any questions that arose. He was very on the ball, and we could not fault the service he provided. We always felt that Gwill had our best interests at heart and the buyers that we were introduced to were ‘best-fits’ for us so there were no time wasters. I would recommend any IFA looking for a change of direction with their business or exiting the industry completely to speak to Gunner & Co as soon as you possibly can.

Richard Moor – Moor Investment Services Limited

Having had a very poor experience with another broker previously I found Gunner and Co. to be everything I feel I needed. Gwill Evans in Bristol was my contact from start to finish, providing answers to my questions and to many more I didn’t realise I needed to ask! Gwill demonstrated an excellent understanding of the market from both a seller and buyer perspective. He helped the negotiating process in the most professional way and was always available to provide updates, information and reassurance.

Mark Dyer – Wescliff Financial Services

From the first introduction through to completion, we have found your service to be professional throughout. You have carefully explained the options and implications of each potential purchaser and made some quality introductions that has enabled us to secure an excellent offer.

We are now pleased to be working with a quality company who will provide an excellent home for our clients, enabling myself to as move into retirement.
