We’ve been in the business for more than 30 years – and we have all owned and sold multiple businesses. We know what works.


We offer more than individual experience – we work as a team.

The CSA team of three matches up each business with the broker who has had the most appropriate skill set and yet as a team they still work together.

It’s called partnership, and the key to getting the right results for our buyers and sellers. Our results speak for themselves, but so do our happy clients, many of whom have returned many times over the years to buy and sell with us. We pride ourselves on old-fashioned face to face business while utilising every modern tool and approach available.

We don’t do hard sales tactics – we just take the time and effort to put the right people together for great outcomes.
