“After 20+ years in Corporate America, I made the decision that I was going to start my own business or buy a franchise within 18 months. As a result, I was committed to finding the “right” person – one that I could really trust – to help me transition into the entrepreneurial world. After interviewing several business brokers and franchise consultants, I was introduced to Anne Barr of Venture Opportunities, Inc. by a very good friend who purchased a franchise thru her in 2005. I found Anne to be a refreshing change, to say the least, from the other business or franchise brokers that I had been introduced to previously. Anne’s screening process was very thorough and allowed me to sift thru hundreds of opportunities and focus on the ones that really matched my personality and goals. Within 7 months, Anne and I had carefully evaluated approximately 15 franchises and businesses and I finally selected Mr. Handyman! It was the perfect match for me and we opened “Mr. Handyman of the Park Cities” on Monday, October 30, 2006! I would highly recommend Anne to anyone who is considering making a career transition so she can assist you with the process." - David S. – New Franchise Buyer

“I purchased a franchise with the assistance of Anne Barr and I am very happy with my choice. Anne, a local franchise consultant, was essential in helping guide me through the franchise research and selection process. Her experience in the franchise industry added to my comfort level and allowed me to make an informed decision without feeling pressured or overwhelmed." - Kelly F. – New Franchise Buyer

“Without Anne and David Barr, I would not have bought my first business. They understand that every buyer has different needs in order to complete each deal. They go above and beyond in meeting the buyer's needs in getting the contract signed and closed. An example of this is when they spent a Friday evening driving around town gathering signatures, making sure the contract got signed. It was a very difficult transaction due to the extensive negotiations required. To this day, I am still amazed at how they got the deal completed. If the seller had chosen another broker, the seller would still be trying to sell the business. I am now working on buying a second and third business through Anne and David. They have been instrumental in assisting me in this process as well--They know what it takes for a buyer to secure financing, and assist in getting the required paperwork to the lender. If I ever decide to sell my business, I know where I am going for my broker." - Wesley H. – Franchise Buyer
