What Our Clients Say About Us

While the number of sales we help broker speaks volumes, our most important measure of success is the satisfaction of our clients. Here’s what they have to say about having us serve as their business brokers.

Michael Ritchey

Global Village Organic Coffee

I would like to thank Tully Ryan and the full Murphy Business & Financial team for the smooth facilitation of the sale. The level of professionalism, discretion, and transparency displayed by everyone from start to finish is unparalleled. As a seller, we were guided every step of the way, with no pressure or unanswered questions. Every concern, query or change of strategy was met with prompt and courteous responses. Tully and his team worked hard to earn my trust. I can’t speak highly enough of my experiences with Tully and his entire team at Murphy Business and Financial.

Jim Baker

Chief Executive Officer for 50 Cups LLC

The process of acquiring Global Village Organic Coffee was well managed and was executed in line with the timelines set out by the parties. Murphy Business & Financial effectively managed all the interactions between the parties in a professional and obliging way, and we found the team a pleasure to work with.

My experience with Tully Ryan, Business Intermediary of Murphy Business & Financial of the Carolinas, has been truly amazing. When I decided to sell my tire business I really had no idea how to go about it. After meeting with several brokerage firms I settled on Murphy Business because of the sincerity, honesty, and good rapport that I established with Tully.

Many hurdles were encountered through this process but the knowledge and professionalism exhibited by Tully have been invaluable.

It has been an enjoyable experience with Tully. I have found him open and honest in all matters. I would highly recommend Tully and his company for anyone wishing to buy or sell.

We were looking for a team that had experience with middle market acquisitions

Posted by Mark Edelman and Ken McMullen, Co-Owners, Mark-Air, Inc. 

We were looking for a team that had experience with middle market acquisitions. Our Wells Fargo Wealth Advisor referred us to Ron Buck and Tully Ryan with Murphy Business Sales, and we got exactly what we were looking for. Ron, Tully, and the entire Murphy team not only met, but far surpassed our expectations. We were extremely satisfied with their expertise, thoroughness, and level-headed navigation through the inevitable noise of the transaction. Not to mention the price, terms, strength of the buyer, and the time it took to complete the transaction. We really appreciate all that they did for us, from initial engagement to closing (and even post-closing), and would highly recommend them to other owners interested in selling their business.

George Leviton, COO of Twin Towers Trading Site Management LLC

Tully Ryan and the team at Murphy Business Sales have a deep understanding of our market, the competitive landscape and important trends. Their tailored approach resulted in a terrific outcome for the acquisition of our franchise as well as our employees who are excited about the next phase of the company. Murphy Business’ valuable counsel, experience, and diligent process management were all critical in achieving a great result.

Backstory: Twin Towers recently asked Murphy Business & Financial to assist in the sale of one our own franchise stores located in a Walmart to fulfill our corporate strategy. Within 5 days of listing the business we received and accepted a Letter of Intent, within 4% of our asking price, from a very well qualified and capitalized buyer. And while they assure us that not all transactions occur that quickly, we are confident that they will work just as hard for you too.

Tully, and the entire Murphy Business Team, streamlined our acquisition management processes through seamless communication and collaboration between Monro and Murphy. They Identified existing automotive repair and tire chains for acquisitions, assisted with due diligence and negotiating the purchase, directed real estate lease related activities, and managed the process through closing — all in coordination with our Legal and Finance team. Tully and his team got things done in an expeditious and efficient manor, adding value to our M&A group by allowing us to focus on priority issues and close more transactions.

Tully Ryan provided my wife Debbie and I with outstanding support throughout the acquisition of our Allegra Marketing*Print*Mail business, located in Charlotte, North Carolina. Tully is extremely knowledgeable in the acquisition process and he provided us with expert guidance that was instrumental for ensuring a successful experience. He made himself available at any time for questions and followed through on commitments. Tully also used resources available to him very effectively to help with finding solutions to challenges that arose throughout the process. We certainly plan to maintain a relationship with Tully into the future and recommend him and his services to anyone looking to purchase a business.

Tully Ryan and his team at Murphy Business could not have been more professional

Posted by THL Enterprises, LLC 

Tully Ryan and his team at Murphy Business could not have been more professional and instrumental in our pursuit of owning our own business. For my partners and I this was our first venture into business ownership so we had many questions throughout the process. Tully was always available to answer these questions and was instrumental in helping us apply for and acquire funding. Being military veterans we understand the true importance and value in capable team mates, how it inspires confidence in accomplishing a mission or task. Being our first experience with purchasing a business my partners and I were understandably nervous and hesitant about the endeavor. The professionalism and knowledge displayed by Tully and his team help assuage those concerns tremendously. It’s been a little over a year since we purchased our business and we could not be happier with our success so far. I have full confidence in Tully and his team and would recommend them to anyone.

Overwhelmingly positive experience with Murphy Business

Posted by Independent Lighting Corporation. 

I tried selling my business for 3 years with a different business broker and within 167 days after listing, Murphy Business found a buyer and closed the sale for 100% of our asking price.
I have had an overwhelmingly positive experience with the Murphy Business Services team and Tully Ryan. I have found Tully to be honest, knowledgeable, and attentive to the needs of both buyer and seller.
By setting realistic expectations and using his expertise and past experiences, Tully brings incredible value to both sides of the transaction, facilitating successful transactions which maximize value for sellers, while simultaneously setting up a buyer for long-term success.
I would not hesitate in recommending him to anyone who is seriously considering selling their business.
