It is not often that I’ve taken the time to write a letter of recommendation. However, the experience I had with Albert Hakim and The Kensington Company was exceptional.
We operated a family owned retail gift store for 38 years called PROTASS. I met Albert in April 2015. I had the confidence after our first get together that if there was a possibility of selling our business, Albert was going to help make it happen.
First of all, Albert “talked the talk.” Albert wanted to know everything about our business and he patiently and methodically delved into all the details, which enabled him to package and present our business in the most favorable manner. Albert is a seasoned businessperson, not a slick salesman looking for a quick buck. He was a realist…explaining that he had the confidence that our business was marketable however finding the right individual was not going to be quick nor easy.
Through the marketing of The Kensington Kensington, a short 6 months later, he produced a potential buyer and 6 weeks after that, a closing at the attorney’s office! Once again Albert calmly and professionally guided the process to a successful sale.
Through the entire process, communication with Albert was easy. Phone calls were always promptly returned. Actually, if a few days passed where I did not reach out to him, invariably I would receive an email or call just to update me on any progress, suggestions or ideas he had.
Albert is a class act. I would highly recommend him to anyone who seriously wants to sell their business.
