What our clients say
in my career you get to deal with a lot of service providers. There are the below average, the average the the above average. Then there is one category that no one talks about which is the exception. I have had the pleasure of meeting Dustin at an event. We then engaged him to source acquisition targets for us. The communication, Personal service, attention to details, availability, interaction with him and his team has been nothing short of exceptional. If ANYONE wants further in-depth conversation about the exceptional experience please reach out.
Dustin and his team at Hello Exit are simply incredible! Their expertise and support throughout the entire process of selling my company were a game changer. Dustin’s expertise and guidance throughout the entire process was invaluable. He took the time to truly understand my needs and goals, and helped me navigate every step of the way with ease. His team at Hello Exit is exceptional, and they truly go above and beyond to ensure their clients are not only satisfied, but actually excited about their exit!! I cannot recommend Hello Exit enough! Their professionalism, knowledge, and dedication to their clients are unmatched. If you’re looking for a top-notch company to help you sell your business, look no further than Hello Exit. Thank you, Dustin and team, for all that you do!
I worked with Dustin [from Hello Exit] for the sale of a business and everything went smoothly. He was very hands-on and provided a lot of guidance throughout every part of the process. He took the time to get to know my business well and was able to communicate our operation effectively to potential buyers. The sale was a success and I couldn’t have done it without him.
Dustin [from Hello Exit] was great working with me to help sell my software company. He made everything clear, was patient, never over pressured me, but kept a strong sense of urgency. I would recommend him to anyone looking to sell their business and plan on working with him again in any capacity that I can.
It was a pleasure working with Dustin and he has my most sincere recommendation. He and his firm bring a sophistication and etiquette that is very hard to find in the lower, lower middle market – outstanding preparation, excellent sell-side coaching, a rationale / unbiased disposition, and so on. In addition, he brings a powerful network to the conversation and can add value well beyond the transaction. I hope to work with Dustin on many more deals to come!
Dustin added tremendous value for our portfolio of companies. He made a complex sale process easier and significantly more efficient. We received 5 offers (two above ask) and were extremally happy with the outcome. As a serial trouble maker that has acquired 7 companies and sold 4 we will be using Dustin for future exits.
With Hello Exit, Dustin has built one of the best online business brokerages out there. As a buyer, Dustin’s company has continuously provided us with acquisition targets that have been very well qualified. Every opportunity has fit directly into the criteria we’ve been looking for which has saved a ton of time on due diligence. If you want to get a jump start on your acquisition pipeline, it’s easy to recommend Dustin and Hello Exit.
Dustin is one of the most knowledgable business broker out there for tech & web businesses. We used him to buy a significant business operated by 15+ employees. Our work in diligence was substantially reduced given the strong & accurate information package he provided. All questions were proactively answered, all supporting data was there and presented in the right format, and everything was accurately represented. This saved us weeks of work! In discussions & negotiations, Dustin played a fair role & helped resolved issues by understanding the issue from the perspective of both buyer & seller. With his knowledge and experience, he was able to make smart suggestions and helped everyone reach a common ground quickly. I would surely work with Dustin again. He is super!
Dustin is one of the smartest SaaS model minds in the business. We compare notes about technology, business models and how to level-up companies in today’s fast changing markets. He is on point with a great approach and I am always happy to send recommendations. Cheers, Tim
What can I say other than Dustin delivered on everything he promised… and then some. At first, I didn’t believe him when he said he would sell my agency in a few months. But he was so passionate about working together, a part of me believed he would deliver. And he did. We had 3 offers in 30 days and went under contract with the highest offer. In 3 months later we closed on the sale at the price he evaluated us on. During the entire process, his knowledge and experience helped immensely. Any time there was confusion or a hurdle that myself or the buyer had, Dustin and his team stepped in and smoothed every over. Selling a business is one of the most invigorating yet stressful experience I’ve ever went through and I’m so grateful that I picked the right broker to help me through it. I’d use him again in a heartbeat.
Dustin and his team were great to work with. They helped increase our deal flow with strategic deals. If someone is looking to increase their targeted deal flow I would definitely recommend working with Dustin.
Dustin was awesome to work with on the deal. He and team provided great support and advice all through – from initial interest discussions, negotiations, contract closure to execution. He is very prompt and proactive which sails the deal making through. He also provided great support and mediation help post transition on some key contract payout clauses, which is highly appreciated. I recommend Dustin highly to SAAS business owners and entrepreneurs.
I’ve known Dustin for over 10 years, and actually acquired a SaaS company he founded. I’ve always found Dustin to be extremely sharp, fair and honest, reasonable to deal with, and the kind of person you would want to do business with again in the future (which is rare these days). I’m currently mentoring and incubating over 150 international startup companies, and have already talked with Dustin about bringing him these businesses to broker to sell once they are profitable and solidly into their momentum phase.
Dustin is one of the best and most trustworthy SaaS advisors and brokers in the industry, and a great person! If you run a SaaS business, and Dustin contacts you, you should definitely talk to him! Even if you decide not to sell, it will be a very worthwhile and fruitful conversation.
