Background

Before joining NAI Commercial, John owned and operated a number of businesses in Vancouver’s Lower Mainland area. In 1997 he joined a family business in the collateral recovery, court order enforcement and financial services sector. By 2006 John was the president and co-owner of the company, after literally working his way from the bottom up through all of its different positions. And that’s when John started thinking about and planning for his exit strategy. In 2010, John successfully sold the company and today, as part of the mergers and acquisitions department at NAI, John helps other business owners to do the same.

“My business advisor played a critical role when it came to planning, negotiating and reaching my sale goals,” says John. “I am a business advisor at NAI Commercial today, because if I were to sell my business all over again, this is where I would list it.”

By combining the strengths of an IBBA accredited business intermediary, and the marketing power of a global brand like NAI Commercial, business owners can be assured that their sale will be as successful as possible.

John specializes in selling companies located in the Vancouver Lower Mainland, (Whistler to Hope) which have a market value from $500K to $10M.

Testimonials

“When my friends ask me about selling or transitioning their business, I will recommend they talk to John 1st.”
– T.W., Business Owner, Automotive Sector, GVRD

“John made it easy on me….while I continued to run the day to day operations, John took care of all the details and I didn’t have to worry about what was happening.  My confidence level is very high with him.”

“Prior to working with NAI, we had been trying for 5 years to find a buyer on our own. What stood out for us was that The Company Sold!”

“Very Professional!”

“Yes, I would be more than happy to refer any business owner to John McLeod. In fact, John is welcome to have them call me so that I can tell them what a great guy he has been to work with and how he helps his clients…. Wait a Minute | Cancel that….Please don’t give them my number, I am supposed to be retired now!”

“Tell John to keep on doing his job, he’s refreshing to work with!”

“Mike said that John was a good guy and he was very happy with the way he listed and sold the business. It was easy for Mike to see that John understands the buyer side and the seller side and that he took the complex and made it easy for him.”

“Very happy with the way the sale went… especially appreciated the marketing materials, and all the promo pieces that went out about the business…..they were just absolutely first class.”

“The business was sold in a timely manner and for reasonable amount.  John was a good guy and I am really happy that I worked with him.”
