Hi Chris and Graham,

I wish to express my thanks and gratitude for the professional manner you both presented in selling my newsagency, newsXpress, Oxenford.

The time you both took in ensuring that all the relevant information was gathered for the buyer made the sale process extremely painless, as well as your checklists your company uses to ensure a smooth handover are invaluable.

I highly commend both of you and once again, thank you for tireless efforts in ensuring a successful sale.

Dear Chris,

My husband and I just wanted to thank you for all your help and assistance with the sale of our business. Your professionalism and kindness kept us focused on the business, maintaining a strong relationship with our customers both local and commercial, without you this may not have happened. We appreciated your strength when we became bogged down in private and personal matters.

Your service was 5 star and even when the sale had completed – you were still there to assist us with any concerns. Many others would see an unconditional contract as the end of their services. You are wonderful and highly recommend you to anyone wishing to sell their business. Genuine and professional are extremely rare and you excelled in both.

Please if you need a testimonial, if someone just wants to check you out even with a phone call we are more than happy as we know you will give them your very best.

We are just getting into the swing of things as newly retired and are spending as much family time together as possible.

We really appreciate what you have done.

Warm regards

Hi Graham,

It’s all settled. Thanks for all of your help to make it go as smoothly as it did.

Some stories from the Buyers about other agents they dealt with and from other Buyers they were at Casket Training with made us shudder. Made us appreciate dealing with a Professional outfit such as yourselves.

Thanks again

Hi Graham,

Thank you for the beautiful flowers we received yesterday, what a lovely surprise. We would also like to thank you for all of your help in selling our business. As most buyers of newsagencies seem to be people from outside the industry, your guidance of the very involved process and the check list is invaluable.

This is the second time in just over 6 years that we have received great service from Newsagencies for Sale. Thank you for everything Graham and hopefully we will meet again in the future.

A Note of Appreciation – Dear ChrisJust a note to thank you for your professional and friendly conduct in dealing with the successful sale of our business, Nextra Lutwyche.

Your industry knowledge certainly helped in presenting the business in the best possible light, and your patience and determination over what proved to be a lengthy process was admirable.

Above all was our confidence in your ethics and our firm view that at all times you were acting in our best interests. You proved to be a vendor’s agent at all times.

Judy and I are delighted with the outcome, and thank you sincerely for the very significant role you have played in selling our business.

All the very best.

Chris Green was referred to me as an industry leader in selling Newsagencies. After our initial meeting where we focused on how best to present the business it became clear why Chris is held in high regard within the industry. After a short period, several expressions of interest followed and due to Chris’s professionalism and experience a sale quickly followed. I’ve no hesitation in recommending Chris should you be thinking of selling your business and in need of a commercially focused broker.

I am pleased to relate that Chris Green of QNF Sales was able to facilitate the sale of our newsagency. At a difficult time in the market Chris successfully marketed our business and obtained several offers to purchase. He carefully handled these and helped us identify those which were serious offers. Chris assisted us in selecting the most suitable purchaser and then he skilfully and patiently negotiated a purchase price which was acceptable to us.

At all times he was available to us to discuss the progress of the sale and the professional and caring way he handled the whole process of the sale gave us confidence that we were dealing with an expert.

Chris showed great enthusiasm for the newsagency business and unlike other agents we dealt with always looked for positives. We greatly appreciated his assistance in the sale of our business.


We wish to express how extremely impressed we were by the no fuss, honest and professional service provided by Graham Randall in the purchase of our newsagency.The skills he possessed were of notable credit and assisted both parties greatly in being able to realise a mutually acceptable outcome.
Thank you.

This year we engaged Chris to sell our business – Gracious Greetings. Madeline and I take much pleasure in providing this testimonial.From day one to settlement Chris was very professional and exceptionally well organised. We engaged Chris to sell the business on Friday the 11th March 2011 and supplied him with a business information folder. He had the folder photocopied and returned to us the following Monday. On Saturday 19th March we received an email with a draft one page business summary and a suggested financial summary based on discussions held through the week. His presentation of the financials to best reflect the KPI’s used by accountants when looking at a business for a buyer left us in no doubt that Chris had strong background in business management.We have no doubt that his communication skills and business knowledge allows Chris to present information to potential buyers in a clear and concise manner. This can be attested to from the feedback by our buyer. She said Chris’s extensive knowledge of the business and his promptness in getting back to her with any requests for information made her feel comfortable.Chris focuses on what needs to be accomplished to make the sale and see the sale through to settlement. This focus made it possible for the sale of the business to be completed within a tight time line required by the buyer. First contact with the buyer was made on the 09th May and Chris had a contract signed on the 07th June and settlement completed on 30th June.To this day we still comment on how hassle free and smoothly the sale went. All due to Chris.We take this opportunity to thank him very much for his professionalism in selling our business.Kindest Regards

Dear Natalie and Graham
It was lovely to see Graham out here on the stock take day and have a friendly chat with him, Graham has been very helpful all the way through the process and we could not fault him at all. One thing I have found in the newsagency game is that everybody is happy and busy at the same time and also that everybody cares for each other, I have not met any negative people so far and i hope it stays that way.We realise Graham is a very busy man and again we thank him for all his great work and knowledge.We wish you and Graham all the best for the future, and thank you very much.BEST WISHES AND THANKS

Chris Green handled the sale of our newsagency in a highly professional manner and we find it hard to imagine that anyone else could possibly have done better. He has an intimate knowledge of the newsagency channel and a genuine belief in the future of the industry. This enables him to gain the trust of both the sellers and prospective purchasers. Chris is always well prepared, is proactive and has excellent communication and negotiation skills. He is very patient and methodical, and is prepared to go the extra mile to assist purchasers through the lengthy process to complete a sale.

We have no hesitation in recommending the services of QNF sales and Chris Green in particular if you wish to sell your newsagency.”

“I attended the QNF Conference in March 2009 where I heard Chris Green deliver a Workshop on “How to ready your business for sale”.  To say I was impressed is an understatement.”On returning to our business I told my husband I have found the Broker who is going to sell our Newsagency.  We signed with Chris in November 2009 by December 7th 2009 we had a signed Contract.  This fell over, however Chris had a back up buyer and we settled one month later than the first Contract was due to settle.  We settled 27th April 2010.Chris kept us fully informed throughout the whole process, even being present on Stock take day.We wish Chris every success for the future and thank him sincerely for the excellent effort he put in for us.

“We found Chris Green to be diligent in his efforts to sell our business. He was supportive and exact in the advice he gave regarding figures that would be needed for the sale. We have no qualms in recommending Chris Green as an effective, helpful salesman. “

Yvonne Carr – Lucky Stans Casket Agency

“When our partners and my wife and I decided to sell Morningside Central News we contacted Chris Green from QNF Sales to act as Broker for us. Chris provided us with professional assistance throughout the sale process, during what was sometimes quite rocky owing to banking and Landlord obligations placed on our buyer. I have no hesitation in recommending Chris as a broker, he has an excellent understanding of the industry generally, and a thorough knowledge of the purchasing and selling process.”
