To Whom It May Concern,
I highly recommend Brett Miller of Miller Management Associates. Brett was the broker in the sale of our daily fee golf course in North Carolina. He did an outstanding job and found us the ideal buyer. Brett has the highest ethical standards and exceeded our expectations in every respect.
I am a commercial real estate broker and I know a good broker when I see one. One of our other partners also holds a real estate license, and we wouldn’t even consider handling a golf course sale ourselves or listing with a general broker. The sale of a golf course is very specialized, and we looked long and hard for the right broker. There are only a handful of dedicated specialists in the Southeast, and Brett was our top choice.
Brett is uniquely qualified, and his experience runs the gamut. First, he is a PGA Professional. He has been a course professional, a general manager, a managing partner and an owner. He is intimately familiar with the maintenance end also. With his insight, he was able to counsel potential buyers on potential revenue enhancements, or on making inexpensive fixes for perceived problems.
Brett is a member of several professional associations and committees and his networking is invaluable. He efficiently placed ads for us and ran focused email notices regionally, nationally and even internationally.
In short, if you are even thinking of buying or selling a golf course, you would be foolish not to consider the services of Brett Miller of Miller Management Associates.
The Country Club of Asheville (CCA) of Asheville, NC had experienced many years of decreases in membership, years of operating deficits that were assessed to members, no “operating reserve” to handle unexpected needs and a “line of credit” has to be used periodically during the fiscal years, and a “capital fund” of only $150,000 and the club had a list of capital needs of around 6 million dollars.
CCA retained the professional consulting services of Brett Miller, PGA, of MMA Golf, since it was felt we needed professional help with trying to solve the many problems.
On January 8, 2015 the sale of CCA to McConnell Golf, LLC of Raleigh, NC closed after many months of research and study, that included researching numerous companies that purchase, manage or lease clubs, site visits by those companies that expressed an interest, review of letters of intent and proposals, presentations to the Board of Governors of CCA on recommendation of the Ad-Hoc Committee to accept the purchase proposal of McConnell Golf, LLC, many memberships meetings and the formal vote by the stockholders on the sale along with a proposal for CCA to continue ownership.
As a member of the Board of Governors and a member of the Ad-Hoc Committee that investigated the process I want to express my appreciation for your professional guidance thru this very interesting process. Your guidance during the sight visit of various companies, your review of the Letters of Interest and the actual proposals was very helpful in our selection of McConnell Golf, LLC to the Board of Governors and eventually to the membership on November 19, 2014.
Your in-depth knowledge of the golf industry was extremely helpful and your relationship with Mr. McConnell was very beneficial in negotiating the final Sales Agreement.
Without your consulting expertise and guidance the process would have been very difficult.
I would be very happy to be used as a reference.
