They call and set up an appointment then tell you they need 9k to sell your company maybe within 3 years- no refunds. Initially we were solicitated by a woman named Geraldine Kerr. She said Steve in Estero would like to meet with us to talk with us about another company wanting to purchase ours. We thought maybe it was our competition wanting to buy us out so we met with him. Once we met with him he took 2 hours to get us all excited then told us we needed to pay him 9k today so they could get us qualified. It is non refundable and it can take up to 3 years to have a buyer. When we told him we weren’t interested, he got all offended and asked "what, you don’t trust me?” To which we replied, no, we do not trust you, we don’t know you. You can easily walk away with our money and never return. He got all pissed off and caused a scene in front of our children who are 4 and 6 years old. We ended up asking him to leave and he told us "f*ck you” on the way out. Everyone BEWARE!!!

#1 UPDATE Employee

Response to Twin Screws Marine Service

AUTHOR: Jason - (United States)

We are saddened to hear about these accusations, as Integrated Advisory Group had not previously received any complaint relating to Mr. Rafter, and we apologize on behalf of the company if something untoward transpired. Our Human Resources department will investigate these claims and take disciplinary action as needed. In the meantime, though, we encourage potential clients or anyone looking to sell their business to do thorough research on the methods available to them. There is a lot of misinformation on the internet that leads sellers to act against their own self-interest and as we all know unfortunately there are no restrictions on what can be put on the internet. We pride ourselves on having the tools and specialists to help sellers separate good information from bad as well as viable exit strategies from impossible ones. If you experience any issues with an analyst or otherwise wish to learn more about our company, we invite you to contact us to candidly discuss any concerns regarding our firm. We are certain that you will find our entire firm to be that we are 100% transparent – a policy that has led us to achieve the very success that has made us a target to others.
