I can't thank Scott enough for taking me to the place I needed to be. Retirement." - S.H.

"Scott Balfour is a hands-on kind of person who takes interest in you personally and in your business. He knows his stuff. Scott came to my business, reviewed my books and asked lots of questions. He has found several prospects but none yet who have all the right attributes. I know he is doing everything he can to sell this business." name withheld for confidentiality

"Thanks very much for taking the time to review the information on my property. I greatly appreciate your generosity and expertise. Keeping space filled is important to me. Working with a leasing agent that respects my business is also important. With Magnusson Balfour, I get the attention and communication that I need combined with the results I want. Scott is accomplishing what he said they would. He keeps me up to speed with regular status updates. I like his approach. It's thorough...somewhat old school. But the only thing that matters is that he is doing the job he said he would—finding tenants and leasing space. I've been very satisfied with his effort and results. I would recommend Scott Balfour to sell your business. He is the most competent, ethical, and experienced business broker I know." - J.R.

"Scott was genuinely concerned and helpful with any questions we had. He really made us feel like he cared about our transaction." - N.D.

“I was very satisfied with overall service.  Scott did a great job of keeping me informed as to what was going on....and also on providing a "push" to others (banker, appraiser, etc) when needed to make sure the process stayed on track. Scott was always great about answering calls and/or emails.  I found him extremely knowledgeable and was a great "sounding board" for me during the process. Balfour Commercial was not too involved in processing documents or paperwork…this was mostly handed by lawyers & banker.” – R.O.

"I was 100% satisfied. Scott didn't pressure me, was kind and very understanding." - D.H.

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?
