Doug's Testimonials

's testimonial

If you need to sell your company I highly recommend Website Closers. We worked with Doug and Lenny who were absolute professionals in the business. From day 1 they navigated us through the complicated process of creating our marketing material,... read more conducting a realistic and healthy valuation, vetting the many buyers who were interested in our company, and ultimately walking us through the complex and often stressful process of due diligence. They also helped us navigate the legal processes by working with us, alongside our legal team, providing advice and out of the box ideas to help us get us through closing as quickly as possible. We knew Website Closers had a huge database of buyers but underestimated the amazing support they would provide through the entire selling process for our 4M deal. Not only did they find the best buyer, they helped to make sure we got the best offer for cash at closing and found the best person to take over our company. On top of everything they did for us from the business aspect, they also did it with a calm demeanor, and with enough humor and counseling to keep us sane during the process. 100% recommend using them!

I worked with Doug and Lenny through an extensive exit process of ~9 months. I am genuinely so thankful to have had these guys as my brokers. Incredibly supportive throughout the entire process. Always a phone call away for any... read more of my questions. This was my first exit, so of course I had a lot of questions they’ve heard hundreds of times. Despite that, never an ounce of reluctance to help me out, even if they were silly questions. The process of finding my brokers was a bit stressful, and the biggest factor for finding the right fit was trust. Once I got on a call with these two I immediately knew I could trust them. Even though it was a long process, they made it an easy process for me through their hard work and dedication. Highly recommend these two, and I’m looking forward to working with them on my next exit.

I recently had the pleasure of working with Doug Grindstaff and Lenny Farber at Website Closers during an M&A transaction in which I acquired an e-commerce company. Although Doug and Lenny were the seller’s investment bankers and I was the... read more buyer, their roles were absolutely critical in the successful completion of the deal.
Navigating through the complexities of mergers and acquisitions requires skill, professionalism, and exceptional communication abilities. Both Doug and Lenny exhibited these qualities in Spades. They were instrumental in educating the seller about the process, aligning expectations, and driving the deal forward at every stage.
In transactions of this nature, it’s not uncommon for contentious moments to arise. It was in these moments that Doug and Lenny’s true value became apparent. Their ability to diffuse potentially challenging issues through clear communication, calm professionalism, and fair negotiation ensured that both parties remained focused on the ultimate goal.
Even though they were representing the seller, they understood the importance of balance and collaboration between both sides. Good investment bankers make a world of difference in M&A transactions, and Doug and Lenny undoubtedly fall into this category.
I look forward to working with them again in our next transaction, whether on the buying or selling side. Their contribution, not just in technical expertise but in facilitating a smooth and transparent process, has left a lasting impression.
I wholeheartedly recommend Doug and Lenny at Website Closers for anyone involved in similar transactions. Their integrity, communication skills, and commitment to a successful outcome set them apart in this highly competitive field.
