Eliot has a unique approach to marketing your B&B. His background in both innkeeping and inn sales provides a detailed and thorough checklist. He adds value and confidence to the relationship and the transaction. I was very pleased with his knowledge, work ethic and attention to detail.
Both the sellers and the buyers in this case benefited from your consultation on the inn’s operations from a historical and pro-forma perspective. Having run an inn for 15 years, you lend a perspective that can only be accumulated from years of “hands on” experience.
I want to acknowledge how wonderful it is to have the cooperation of an inn broker who shares our commitment to the industry and dedicates his career to serving others in the friendly, conscientious way you do.
I just wanted to say “Thank You” for all the help you provided over the past years…. your inn consulting and the advice that you gave me was extremely valuable and always right on the money. Without implementing your recommendations, I don’t think we would have sold our inn at the price we did
