Copthorne Resort Hokianga
"In August 2018, as owner of the Copthorne Hotel and Resort Hokianga, I made the decision to sell the business and enter into a lease arrangement for the property. The sale included accommodation, food and breakfast. In addition I lease the adjoining property with accommodation units including the recently constructed 10 villas trading as The Heads. As part of the arrangement, I wanted to retain The Heads but have the purchaser run them under a management agreement. This was quite complex, with responsibility for bookings, cleaning and other day to day operations being the purchaser responsibility, all done on a revenue share basis.
We engaged Auckland based Resort Brokers Limited who assigned Kamal Sharma to broker a deal. Kamal is a very skilled operator and was pro-active in agreeing on a plan to get the property out there and within a month had introduced the business to 12 interested parties. One of the initial ones, ended up as the purchaser. The process dealing with other parties over the next couple of months required Kamal's vast experience to keep those early candidates interested.
Kamal's knowledge and communications are superb and I was constantly kept informed of viewing arrangements and progress with each following the inspection. He organised on site meetings and provided professional support through the sale process. In addition he offered sound advice in establishing a workable management agreement and ensuring interested parties understood their responsibilities.
I am extremely thankful to Kamal for the proficient way he managed the process."

He offered calm, practical and honest advice at the right time. We were impressed by his network of interested buyers, and by his ability to maintain strong lines of communication throughout the marketing process, and up until and after the point of sale".

"We were approached by Kamal to see if we were interested in selling our Bay of Islands operation. After some discussion, we considered that the option Kamal presented to us would be able to provide security, continuity and opportunity for our staff. This was important to us as they have been key in the development of the business. Kamal progressed the proposal professionally and provided his assistance in the various dealings throughout the transaction. Kamal demonstrated his understanding of the backpacker business sector which, to those involved, would appreciate the differences from other forms of tourism accommodation".

From our first contact, we found Kamal to be very professional, knowledgeable, and engaging. Buying a business is an emotional roller coaster and requires patience, understanding, and experience and this is what we experienced during each and every contact we had with Kamal. We highly recommend Kamal to anyone considering buying or selling their business.
Kamal has been very professional and provided all the information requested to make and informed decision. We would recommend Kamal to help with your requirements.

To whom it may concern
Gordon McGregor has helped Lisa and I fulfill our dream and we are so happy to have met him. We saw an advertisement for the sale of the Whitianga Hotel and Salt Restaurant and Bar and made contact with him. Gordon met us on site with all documents prepared and his gentle negotiation skills meant that we are able to put the business under contract. The deal was not easy to conclude and Gordon worked professionally diligently with us to ensure a positive outcome. We are now ensconced in our new business and totally enjoying the experience thanks to Gordon. We would highly recommend Gordon to you if you are looking to buy or sell a business. Lisa and I would like to think that our association will lead to a long-term friendship.

Kamal worked closely with Vanessa and I to ensure our business was presented as a professional organization and represented as a top tourist accommodation operation. Kamal ensured our photos, documentation and presentation were prepared professionally and represented with integrity. Kamal also worked extremely hard to ensure we were well represented and he kept us fully informed at every step of the way and included us in ALL communications. Kamal was a pleasure to work with, professional at all times and represented Rock Solid Backpackers as if he was part of our team. We received a great result in our sale and would not hesitate to recommend Kamal to buyers and sellers!
I have dealt with Resort Brokers on a number of occasions including the purchase of our latest business. We found Allister Simpson great to deal with. We told him where we wanted to go, what we wanted to do, and he duly obliged in finding us a suitable business. Quite simple really!
Mr Paul Sanson of Resort Brokers recently assisted us in the purchase of Totara Lodge Motel in Levin.
Paul acted in a most professional manner in all dealings from initial inspection of the property to the actual purchase.
He was able to answer all of our queries and was extremely helfpul in giving us any information required.
We would highly recommend the services of Paul.
