I had a series of conversations with this small business owner, and we were disinclined to loan him the money he needed to start his new business. When he came back with Bob Heger and a well-prepared business plan and pro forma, we agreed to write the loan, but I have to say that he never would have gotten his financing without Bob’s involvement.

Congratulations – it’s gone! Thank you, Bob Heger, for saving our marriage! Thank you for the many hours of effort on your part to sell our business—I don’t think this would have happened without your help. I underestimated the time it would take to find not just potential buyers, but potential qualified buyers who had the capital to buy our business.
I have worked with Robert Heger, owner of BizReady Brokers, for 3 years. As a business consultant, his professionalism and business intuition helped get my troubled business back on track. As a business broker, he then found a perfect buyer for my extremely niche company. Without Bob, I would not have been successful in selling my business.
Bob’s help with tough and complex issues proved to be invaluable and produced the best possible results for me and my struggling business. He worked with both private and governmental entities to relocate company operations. He proved to be a fierce negotiator, dealing with third parties, suppliers, and leasing companies. I highly recommend him as a business consultant and broker.
Bob worked with me to buy my business. I thought I could do this myself, but I totally underestimated the amount of time and the skill it would take to make this happen. When it came to finding and leasing a space, I knew I was out of my league. Bob helped me negotiate my lease, and he got me a great deal. I could never have done this myself. As a small business owner, I continue to make mistakes and learn from some of them, but I’m glad I had enough sense to seek out help from a professional to get my business off on a good footing.
When I got ready to buy my business, I was referred to Bob Heger, BizReady Brokers, by a colleague. He worked with me in a consulting capacity, and together we mapped out a strategy so that I did a lot of the work, but he was there to advise and guide me. We met on a weekly basis to keep my project moving forward. He helped me write a business plan and think about things like insurance and licensing. He had a real ability to listen to me and understand what kind of situation I was looking for. We ran into some trouble spots, but Bob is seasoned and a savvy problem solver. Today I am a happy owner of a successful small business, and I am grateful to Bob Heger for helping me find the business that is right for me.
Expert Witness at Trial
Robert Heger provided credible unrebutted opinion testimony as to the Defendant’s needs to make sure that the liquor license was conveyed with the property. He also described convincingly that going through with the sale without the liquor license would have been sheer folly.
