When BUYING A BUSINESS you want to make sure it’s the best decision.



I have known Mike Redman for 10 years as a business partner in STEP Financial, fellow Rotarian and friend. Mike’s vast professional background proved to be invaluable when he negotiated the successful sale and winding up of STEP Financial Ltd. I recommend Mike to both prospective business purchasers and sellers seeking the services of a successful and ethical business broker.


We recently worked with Mike Redman on the sale of our family business. Mike was an absolute pleasure to work with. He was extremely compassionate, kind and understanding in quite a sensitive family situation.

Mike was very professional and knowledgeable in all aspects of selling a business. I was impressed with the way that Mike really took the time to get to know our business and our market inside and out. Mike led us through the business selling process step by step with great patience and valued guidance.

Working with Mike resulted in a quick and profitable sale of our business, and we highly recommend him to others wanting to sell.


Mike took primary responsibility for negotiating the sale of our business, a complex process taking nearly three years plus to conclude. There was an intensive initial negotiation period of nearly 12 months before the deal was actually signed, and then a two year ‘proving period’ followed by an equally intense revaluation exercise. The latter saw a swing in value in our favour of approximately 10% of the purchase price which was in excess of $3,000,000.
Mike was very focused on achieving a great outcome for the shareholders and we were all delighted with the final result. He made it look easy but I know there were many many extra hours put in to achieve the final outcome. Mike also negotiated a major strategic alliance for our firm, and closed many major transactions during his time with STEP Financial. He is a deal maker, and as we used to say a born ‘elephant hunter’ which ties up nicely to his origins in Africa!
