“I would like to take this opportunity to thank Sovereign following the successful sale of my business. Not only did they get us a fantastic price but they made the whole process a lot smoother than I ever expected, which was great as I was expecting a baby at the time! Alisanne, my personal account manager was in regular contact from start to finish. Every aspect of the sale was handled with utmost professionalism and attention to detail. Well done Sovereign on your negotiation & communication skills, keep up the great work.”
“I highly recommend Sovereign to anyone who requires the services of a Real Business Transfer Agent”
