Here are some things his clients have said:

"We have been exceptionally impressed with a few features of your work:

First, your personal touch in listening to us – you took the time to understand what was important to us and our business model. With that information, you provided us with a few location options to look at, in optimal locations, that would make our brand visible to the community.

Second, your ability to adjust to our changing needs without complaint and was very professional and accommodating.  You stated on several occasions that you just wanted to make sure that we got a space that would help in making our business successful.  That spirit of accommodation is appreciated.

Third, we appreciated your negotiation efforts of the LOI and the lease. You did your best in getting us all that we wanted out of the lease.   In addition, your service in lease review certainly made our attorney’s efforts minimal.

Please share this letter of recommendation with your future customers." -S.A. & T.A.

 

“I received a letter of introduction from Mr. Dennis Wheelock offering up his brokerage services. I gave him a call to set up a meeting to discuss my options.

When I met with Dennis, I realized very quickly that his background in accounting and his attention to detail would be invaluable in helping me understand the dynamics of selling my business. I was a motivated seller but at the same time, did not want to "give" my establishment away. I found Dennis' own experience of owning a small business for thirty years to be extremely valuable. He understood what I was going through, because he lived it, he was able to guide me through the entire process. You could say we "spoke" the same language.

I would highly recommend Dennis Wheelock for any commercial real estate transaction. In fact, when I plan on selling another one of my businesses, Dennis will be my first call.” - N.E.

 

“I wanted to thank Dennis Wheelock again for all his help in selling my business. I had another realtor before Dennis who tried for over a year with no results.

His connections in the business community were obvious as soon as we listed it, as the potential buyers were lining up.  Dennis’ attention to details and knowledge of the market was key. I do not sell a business every day, so his help and advice were invaluable in getting it sold.” – Name withheld due to confidentiality

 

"From the minute we met, Dennis Wheelock tirelessly worked to find a suitable buyer for our mixed-use building. He used all available resources, consulted with fellow colleagues, and expanded his reach well beyond what was expected of a Realtor. Dennis' earnestness and persistence were fruitful as we have closed the transaction as the direct result of his efforts. Dennis' communication and professionalism throughout were exceptional! I would highly recommend him to anyone interested in selling commercial real estate." - E.H.

 

"I can't begin to express my sincere thanks for all Dennis has done to bring this sale together. Dennis is an awesome and dedicated sales person and human being. Gardiner is fortunate to have your support and commitment, as is Magnusson Balfour! - A.M.

"How Do I..."

Q: How come when I call a broker about a business I’ve seen listed on the internet, they give me the runaround instead of just sending me the information?

Q: I’ve been advertising my business for sale and have obtained a few interested buyers, but they all lose interest when they ask for the tax returns- even after I tell them that I bring home an additional $500 a week in cash. How do I get around this?
