“What sets Jeff Murphy apart is his experience buying and selling businesses for his own account. He knows the challenges entrepreneurs face as he owns businesses too. And I knew he had my best interests at heart when he recommended that I continue to operate Jewell’s Country Market rather than sell it, even though this would have resulted in him not getting a commission!”
– Edwin Jewell
