I have to hand it to you Chris, your follow through and tenacity certainly paid off in the arrangement you brokered between myself and the buyer of my business. Your insight and experience showed in the advice you were able to give us both. As with any business sale there are numerous details that have to be negotiated to keep them from becoming roadblocks to what otherwise would be a good deal to both parties. I appreciate the professionalism and care that you exercised in handling each detail as it arose. A job well done Chris, thank you.
Sincerely, Dennis Rowland, President, Superior Air
Thank you for finding a buyer for our business in a timely manner. From the start, you were professional and knowledgeable with the process. With your massive advertising power, we had interested buyers the first week. You only introduced us to qualified buyers and attended every meeting when we met after hours, hearing our story and answering questions to all parties. You made yourself available anytime day or night. Communication was excellent! You matched us with the perfect buyer to take over our small business. We are thrilled with your services! Thank you!
Sincerely, Kyle & Diane Finley, Owners, Silver Moon Lighting
Chris Seaman made the entire process of selling my business stress-free. He is extremely thorough and follows through with everything he says. He was able to sell my business much faster than I had anticipated. I appreciate that he is an honest broker and makes sure that my questions and concerns as the owner are answered. I have dealt with other business brokers before, and compared to them, Chris is the most attentive and honest one I’ve worked with. I highly recommend his services to anyone looking to sell or buy a business.

Chris Seaman assisted me in purchasing my current business, Emory Plumbing. Chris was extremely thorough and efficient during the process and answered any questions or concerns that I had. Because of his professional manner in handling this purchase, I have come to trust him with other business dealings. I am currently listing my night club with him. His diligent work ethics and professionalism is outstanding and I feel he will give his best effort in selling the night club. If you are looking to sell or purchase a business I highly recommend Chris Seaman.
Sincerely, Brandon Bishop, President, Emory Plumbing
Chris, Thank you so much for all your assistance selling my business, POWAY SMOG. I will highly recommend anyone interested in a business sale, or purchase, to come to you in the future. You explained, in detail, how the business was valued: a very precise, step-by-step analysis. It gave me the confidence that I was getting full, fair value. And also for the buyer that they were buying a business that was fully vetted and knew what they were paying me all that money for. Your finding multiple qualified buyers also put me in the enviable position of having a choice of qualified buyers to ensure I received the best overall deal. I also appreciated your experience putting the deal together. You fully explained all steps of the process so that I felt comfortable with every step along the way. I even appreciated the escrow company you work with. Very experienced in business transactions. Every detail was taken care of to ensure all the legalities were covered. Once again, thanks! FIRST CHOICE will definitely be my "first choice" for any buy or sell in the business arena. If you ever have a client that wishes to contact me personally, please feel free to call.
Sincerely, Shelby Standefer, President, POWAY SMOG, INC.

Dear Chris, When I decided to sell my business, I jokingly mentioned that I needed a broker that can "Sell ice cubes to Eskimos". Well you did it! Despite all the obstacles due to unforeseen circumstances, you found a buyer. You appropriately named your company First Choice. You did an amazing job.
Many thanks, Stania Vagner, Fetal Diagnostic Laboratory

Hi Chris, Thank you again for all of your help purchasing ColorTechs! You and your team did a great job of educating Evencia & I with the entire process. The escrow company that you chose also made the paperwork signing and the legal documentation gathering as easy as possible. I would recommend First Choice to any of my friends who are looking to buy or sell a business.

When you receive good service from a Company, you rarely feel obligated to write a thank you letter. On the other hand, when the Company goes the extra mile and provides a superior service, there is no way that you can dismiss this urge of sitting down, and giving them the proper credit they deserve. The outstanding and professional services that Chris Seaman and his team have demonstrated in this Business transaction is beyond what we call "good customer services". This Business Broker had done everything possible, in a fair-and-square manner, to avoid any mistakes or delays to help in completing the transaction. Chris Seaman and his team are a great asset to the business community of San Diego. Without any doubt in my mind, they have surely set a higher standard of excellence that others will have to strive to compete against. Thank you and congratulations on a job well done!
