It is my privilege to write this letter on behalf of Arnie Lakeyn. I have known Arnie both personally and professionally for over seven years. Professionally, I have found Arnie to be a man of high integrity who works very diligently to promote the best interests of his clients. Personally, I have known Arnie as someone with a very deep commitment to the care and well being of his family. Therefore I would whole-heartedly vouch for Arnie’s character and integrity.

William Geiger

WBG Holdings Inc

Arnie Lakeyn represented us in the sale of our HVAC company. He was referred to us by a SBA lender we consulted with after a bad experience with a prior brokerage firm. Arnie consistently acted in good faith and protected us throughout the complex sales process. Arnie maintained confidentiality at all times when dealing and negotiating with prospective buyers.

Ann Johnson

M & P Contracting Inc

Arnie Lakeyn handled the sale of my business, worked up an amazing prospectus of the business and brought us a qualified buyer in a reasonable time frame & followed through from start to finish. Arnie handled everything very professionally. I must say I was very impressed. Arnie thank you so much for everything. I believe it would not have closed if you were not involved.
