“I, Steve Kuljanin, previous owner of Sani Insurance Agency, Inc., signed a contract with Mr. Sean Hayes for an appraisal. Mr. Hayes provided an appraisal of Sani Insurance based on a careful consideration of relevant data and documents we submitted to him. In his appraisal, he also considered data from the insurance industry. Mr. Hayes gave an appraised value that matched the market value, neither over estimating nor underestimating the value of Sani Insurance.
After providing an appraisal for Sani Insurance, we agreed to terms for Mr. Hayes to serve as a sales broker for the sale of Sani Insurance. After finding and evaluating numerous prospective buyers, Mr. Hayes found a buyer who accepted the appraised value of Sani Insurance. The buyers obtained an SBA loan with Mr. Hayes' assistance. The bank approved the loan and accepted the appraised value of Sani Insurance.
Overall, it took about one year for the completion of appraisal, finding a suitable buyer, and completing the sale of Sani Insurance. I highly recommend Mr. Hayes as an appraiser and sales broker.”

He has become a very trusted ally of ours at Atlantic Capital Bank, and he has really helped us to substantially ramp up our insurance lending portion of our SBA division. I highly recommend Sean, not only for any lender looking to appropriately assess an insurance agency financing opportunity, but also for any individual looking to buy or sell a book of business.”
