When we made the decision to sell our Fish & Chip Shop, it was a pretty monumental decision and something that you have to really be prepared for. Sunbelt (and in particular David Winn-Morgan)made this whole process a really great and positive experience.
South East Business Brokers
David’s commitment to us as his clients went well and truly above and beyond the call of anything we have previously experienced before. This company really knows how to meet its clients’ needs and requirements, and that meant a lot of pressure was taken off of our shoulders. We felt very reassured at every level of this sales process (which can be fraught with many a situation to be gotten over!), and David helped to source solutions and smooth over any problems that cropped up.
David Winn-Morgan enabled us to achieve a fair selling price for our business, to have confidentiality at every level, and to be able to deal with them 24/7, something that is very important when you are a catering establishment operating long hours.
Our experience with David was such a positive one, we would recommend them to anyone potentially looking to sell their business, and when we are ready to ‘go again’ we also wouldn’t hesitate to use them to help find and purchase a new business too.
We have dealt with other Sales Operators before selling our previous businesses, and although we
appreciate that everyone needs to ‘earn their bit’, Sunbelt has a much more personable approach to this process than any of the other competitors we have dealt with in the past. They truly strive to achieve the ‘Best’ for all parties concerned and we couldn’t recommend them (or David) highly enough!
Thanks so much

As a Business Broker David helps and assists his clients at every stage of the business sale process. I have been very impressed with his attention to detail, and the amount of time and energy he puts into his relationship with each of his clients to ensure they are helped and supported during a very stressful and time consuming change in their circumstances. A very conscientious and diligent adviser who I have no hesitation in recommending to any of my clients considering selling their businesses.
Sale of Shake King Bristol
"I have to say I was extremely sceptical that anyone could sell my business. Whilst operationally it was a good, profitable opportunity, the complications with the lease, the accounts and the legal structure of the company made it complicated to say the least.
David was able to find us a motivated buyer within a matter of weeks and steer us through the minefield of selling a business. Whilst his commitment was to me as the seller, he also fully supported the buyer and assisted him to raise the finance.
I was also sceptical about using the professionals he recommended. However, all the people he put us in contact with were exceptional and very cost effective. I intend to continue using the Solicitor he recommended for all future legal work.
The process took just under a year from meeting David to having the cash in the bank. However, most of this time was due to delays and complications on our side.
Be warned - selling a business is not simple. However, David has the experience, contacts and dedication to make it happen!"
Sale of Druce & Owen Fabrications
Both Glynne and I would like to express our gratitude for the tremendous amount of work and enthusiasm you put into selling Druce and Owen. I think after a very short time we all realised it was not going to be an easy job certainly in the current economic climate and in the end it became a challenge that you rose to admirably. So thank you for all your efforts and you may rest assured we would not hesitate to recommend your services. If we have a regret its that we did not approach you a few years ago with a view to putting an "exit" plan in place.
Once again thanks and very best wishes for the future

This is to say thank you very much indeed for your invaluable assistance in selling a part of my solicitors’ practice recently. I am delighted with the result and especially grateful to you for finding a buyer and negotiating a deal which fitted the bill perfectly.
Selling a law firm, or part, is a very complex operation. We lawyers are always being told that no-one will pay a premium for our practices, and that the best we can hope for is to get out without having to pay for run-off cover. We have managed to disprove that, and I fully agree that the production of a comprehensive business profile at the very beginning proved to be decisive in attracting interest.
Having found the buyer and negotiated terms, you remained fully involved in the sale process, and read all documents to ensure that the agreed deal was being executed. I would like to think that I would have picked up the VAT point about TOGC myself, but in the event you got there before I did and thus we were able to ensure that this vital issue was addressed, and ultimately dealt with in the correct manner.
I have no hesitation in recommending you to other solicitors who are wishing to sell their practices, and would be happy to speak to anyone who wanted to gain reassurance. Needless to say, you are most welcome to forward this email to any interested party.
I look forward to working with you in due course in selling the balance of my practice.
With very best wishes

Our decision to use a broker over the conventional agents was simply the best decision we made in an appointing David Winn-Morgan of South East Business Brokers.
Right from the outset David understood our needs and requirements and fully instilled confidence that selling our business was simply not another on the books but his personal goal to get the best for his clients, which he absolutely delivered! Whilst David’s portfolio demonstrates his vast experience in selling businesses, words cannot describe his professionalism, dedication and commitment to client care and the end-to-end process of selling a business.
David generated a vast amount of interest in our business, arranging convenient viewings, supporting the strengths of the business and as any prospective buyer would expect he had a sound understanding of the factors which demonstrated business potential. David continuously provided and acted on prospective buyer feedback, ensuring we were continuously informed. David takes the time to research location, environmental and external factors which may impact the business from both seller and buyer prospective. His approach and advice is realistic, yet focused to achieve the best for his client. David supported us throughout, with all our questions and providing timely solutions to any issues which cropped up!
Our business presented complexities in a change in Landlord and lease term. David had a wealth of knowledge in handling this matter, he understood the legalities of lease terms which assisted to ensure that he achieved the best terms for all parties. This was a mammoth task which David confidently set as a personal challenge; his advice and support throughout was invaluable and beyond our expectations. On securing a buyer that was not the end for David, he continued to assist us in recommending an equally committed solicitor and two collaborated well through to completion.
Selling our business due to difficult unexpected family circumstances was a difficult decision, throughout this period David showed immense compassion, understanding and consideration, prioritising a swift and smooth transaction. We cannot thank David enough for his professional drive but also his personable approach in taking the time to care about both his clients and our business.
We highly recommend David Winn-Morgan to anyone looking to sell their business, he delivered throughout, from finding a buyer to assisting with the transaction, timely communication and even maintaining contact after the sale! David certainly is one of the best in the business.
Thank you David!
