I recently had an overwhelmingly positive experience with Bill Nicholson. Bill and I have known each other over the years through networking in the Dallas/Ft. Worth area. Recently, I was looking for future opportunities and Bill worked with me to identify a franchise to buy along with helping me along with funding sources for the new business. I am well on my way to opening the doors of my very own business and I couldn't be happier. If you're in the market to sell a business or buy a franchised or non-franchised business, I highly recommend calling Bill Nicholson.”

I would like to highly recommend Mr. Bill Nicholson. He is a very professional, well-spoken, and kind business professional. He provided our company with a professional and complete business valuation, and did all he could to sell our business to an interested buyer. Although the buyer did not come through (and someone else bought it), we really respect Bill and his professionalism.

Integrity, Professionalism and clear communication, these are the qualities that Bill Nicholson brings to the table. This is also the reason I referred him to a couple who was in the process of selling their million-dollar business. They had a buyer but were having difficulty completing the negotiations. In Bill’s capable hands they were able to smoothly get across the finish line and complete the sale to everyone’s satisfaction. I can not imagine going through a significant sale without him.
