After 16 years of running his own company, Church Office Equipment, a Portland based business, Craig decided to make a career change which would allow him to spend more time at home with his family and focus on small business consulting, business brokering and real estate. Craig's main focus has always been on servicing the client and developing long term relationships and after 35 years in the office equipment industry, he is excited about assisting businesses and property owners in a different aspect. As a Portland native now living in South Portland and with extensive business relationships throughout the community, Craig is confident that he can provide timely and quality solutions to meet a variety of business and real estate needs. Some comments from past customers:

"My experience with Magnuson Balfour is not that of a buyer of commercial real estate, but rather, one who finances such  properties. And my experience with them has been excellent. The brokers are knowledgeable and have a great understanding of what it takes to get the transaction to the finish line. Financing packages are well put together  and contain the information needed to make a decision. Communication with the brokers is ongoing,  following up throughout the process,  up until the closing. They make my job easy!!!" - Name withheld for confidentiality

"Craig Church’s services far exceeded our expectations, and our successful transaction would not have been possible without the commitment, patience and guidance he provided. Craig was a pleasure to work with and I wouldn’t hesitate to work with him again when the need arises.” – M.L.

"Craig works hard to help clients get what they need and offers good advice!" - R.T.

"Craig was very proactive. Many things were brought to our attention for consideration in advance at all steps of the process - various things that we should have been thinking about." - K.R.

"Craig's attention to detail and customer service was incredible." - K.B.

"Craig always fulfilled his obligations without any hesitation - he was there when he said he would be which, in my experience, is a rare quality in the business world." - P.H.

"Craig Church provided the business knowledge, experience and strategies to support me through the buying process. With his previous business ownership and his brokerage experience, Craig was invaluable to the deal. This is what separates him from other business brokers. Craig guided me in forming a team of professionals to ensure a successful and smooth business closing. Craig continues to check in and offer support even after the closing. I would highly recommend Craig to anyone who either has purchased a business in the past or for first time buyers that don't have the experience but are looking to become their own business owners." - J.Z.

"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?
