Testimonials

I worked with Steve at MT 406 to acquire a brewery in Central MT, he was extremely professional and went out of his way to facilitate the transaction. Purchasing a business is a long and arduous task and Steve jumped through hoops to get the deal done. I would highly recommend MT 406 Business Brokers to anyone who is either looking to buy or sell a business in MT.

Matt Wilson

Steve was a huge help during the purchase of my business. After our first conversation I knew I was in good hands. He is personable and knowledgeable. He made this process easy and simplified thing that needed to be done. He went above and beyond in his role as a broker. He treated me as family. I would recommend anyone to use Steve.

Gabe Higgins

Steve, I wanted to say thank you for all of the hard work you put in selling our business this year…

From our 1st meeting, to closing and even after the sale with some follow-up, you were always upfront on the sales process, timelines and what we could expect from you.

While I could have attempted sell the business myself, I still had a very busy business to run and certainly did not have the experience, the contacts or wealth of resources available that you have developed that make you good at what you do.

I appreciated that you were always upfront, honest, you kept in great contact with me with a no-nonsense approach but most importantly, that you delivered and sold our business!

I am more than willing to recommend you to anyone looking to put their trust in your company for selling or buying a business…

In March 2023 I decided to sell my business in MT. I researched some brokers and came across Steve. I met him for an interview and I knew he was the right person for the job. He is extremely knowledgeable and brought results. Ultimately Steve found the right buyer for my business and we closed on schedule. Selling a business is not like selling real estate. It takes the right person to get it done right. I will always recommend Steve and 406 brokers for business sales. Thank you very much for job well done!

I can’t speak highly enough of Steve Santens and his Montana 406 Business Brokers.

I had previously reached out to two other firms who came highly recommended. However, was given excuse after excuse over about 9 months of how, during COVID, it was not a good time to put my business up for sale, and to wait until better economic times.

Frustrated, I began searching for business brokers and found Steve.

What a difference speaking with Steve and his positive outlook made.

Steve immediately jumped in to getting to know the ins and outs of our business and worked with me to place realistic valuation of the business. He then put together a marketing plan on how to list my business. Within 4 months Steve had a letter of intent signed with a qualified buyer.

He worked tirelessly for the next several months, with me and the buyer, facilitating all the details to help the transaction go through. From attorney’s and bank financing, to the many calls with myself and the purchaser, so all parties had a full understanding of the agreement and complex financing arrangement.

I can’t thank Steve enough.

I highly recommend Steve Santens in helping one sell or buy a business. He is a true professional!

We cannot thank Steve enough for all his business acumen, knowledge of the market, ability to communicate and professionalism.  Steve took our listing and developed a sound marketing plan and used his vast connections and relationships to find us a great buyer in a short amount of time.  Steve worked both sides of the transaction and made sure all parties were kept in the loop and shared information at the appropriate time as well as helped us all get to the finish line.  I would recommend Steve to anyone buying or selling a business.
 
Thanks again Steve, we not only gained a trusted profession in the business field but we came out with a new friend as well.
