"We very recently purchased our first business through Tom Crawford at Tourism Properties. We didn’t know anything about management rights when we responded to the for sale ad but Tom took us patiently through the ins and outs of how this kind of business works. He managed the relationship between vendor and seller well and assisted us with our numerous questions. He also sent us useful information on things to include in the due diligence. Overall we found the process of purchasing this business very straightforward with Tom’s help. We would be very happy to buy another business through him and have already asked him to keep us up to date with any new opportunities in the market."
