Here’s what people have to say about Jeff Smith
I recently purchased a business with the help of Jeff Smith and Partner On-Call Network. Jeff assisted through the entire process. He was able to located businesses and potential sellers that weren’t on the market or listed with brokers. He also helped evaluate all potential acquisitions, saving valuable time and avoiding any bad businesses. I would recommend Jeff and Partner On-Call Network to anyone who is considering buying a business. It was one of the best investments that I could have made.
Ben Spiegel, Moss Glass Co.
I cannot speak highly enough of Jeff Smith and “Partner” On-Call Network. Their support in helping my wife and I find a company to purchase, working through the process and then closing the deal has been invaluable.
William R. Wood, KitchenFusion
I hired Jeff Smith of Partner On-Call Network to provide consulting services for our sales and marketing programs. Jeff provided valuable feedback on what we were doing wrong and what we were doing right. With his help, we were able to implement several targeted marketing campaigns and improve our sales processes. I found Jeff to be a great guy to work with and he always treated us as if we were his only client. I highly recommend his services.
J. Tyler Thompson, Thompson Myers & Associates, P.C.
I found myself in a fortunate position to pursue a business acquisition. I was financially qualified to make this type of investment and knew that I was professionally capable of managing any endeavor but wanted assistance on how to find and purchase a company on my own. It is my advice to any serious business buyer to contact Jeff to discuss how he and POCN could be of assistance in finding a viable acquisition candidate.
