John Ledford
hired George as a Business Consultant in 2000

“I first met George Rosen in 2001 when I was thinking of selling a business. Rather than simply list our business for the price I was seeking, George performed an exhaustive analysis and provided me with a true valuation. George knew that I would not be happy with the figure, so he showed me not only how he obtained the figure, but how to change my business for a potential higher sale in the future. This meant no listing and no commission for him, although he did not seem to mind. As my business continued to grow, an exit strategy was no longer my top priority. Instead, in 2007 I was looking to purchase the 16,000 square foot commercial retail building that our expanded businesses occupied. After many months of negotiating price with the seller and courting potential lenders, I found myself still without a contract and without a financing commitment. In fact, I was not even sure it was in my best interest to obtain the building at all. I had to find George Rosen! He would know at what price the building would be a good addition for me. He would be able to help with the contract negotiation. And he would be able to package our deal for quick approval from lenders. None of these services were ever offered by Mr. Rosen during our meetings five years prior, but I was confident that Mr. Rosen’s experience with investment analysis that I witnessed firsthand and his past successes in making deals happen that were apparent would make his input invaluable to me. Although he was no longer with the same firm, I was able to use a little detective work to track him down. As expected, he was able to help. He had the mathematical answer to my question of buying the building – the price at which the purchase would be sensible for us, considering our past, present and extrapolated future business record, and that of the building. A deal was made with the seller, and thanks to his ability to present our future value to lenders by distilling down a complicated multivariable analysis into a neat box the precise way underwriters view the world, we were able to get financing approvals. I now refer to George Rosen as my “Rubber Stamp Man.” If a deal has any possibility of being financed, George Rosen can be your personal loan processor and present an easily approvable deal to underwriters.” April 3, 2008
