What our clients and peers have to say about us

​“Efficient Evolutions was invaluable throughout this entire process. The company provided strategic advice that helped to make the acquisition as smooth as possible”

Sue Hawkes, Managing Director, The Collaborative Companies a division of Coldwell Banker


"The successful sale of our company would not have happened without Anja’s help. It was the first company we ever owned, so it was the first time we went through the sale process. Anja was very knowledgeable and showed professionalism at all stages of the sale. She gave us a lot of useful business advice while preparing the company for sale, and during the actual process. She was always optimistic, always available for meetings, phone calls, and traveling. She made the sale of our company smooth and enjoyable"

Leon Reznik, President, ABiSee Inc.


"Anja was key to making this deal go smoothly throughout the entire process. Her professionalism, candor, and experience from other deals kept communication streamlined and on track from introduction, through due diligence, to signing. The energy she brought to the process was contagious."

Brad Davis, VP Hardware Product Management, Freedom Scientific

"Anja and I just closed the sale of a medical device company. Anja did a terrific job in both negotiating a letter of intent with extremely favorable deal terms for the client and keeping everyone on target for an expedited closing date (6 weeks from signing the letter of intent). I would highly recommend Anja for company's thinking about selling -- she will do a great job."

Russell Stein, Shareholder, Ruberto, Israel & Weiner, P.C.


"We hired Anja and her team to help with the evaluation and purchase of an existing company. Her professionalism and the knowledge she brought to the table made it easy for both parties to understand the process which helped expedite the sale in a very short period of time. Her attention to detail and experience made her input invaluable and I would highly recommend her for future projects."

"We brought on Anja to perform a valuation of a family-owned medical laboratory we were looking to acquire, as well as assist in the negotiations with the seller. Anja was awesome to work with - she is professional and knows her stuff. I especially appreciated her being straight with me about project scope (so we weren't paying her for unnecessary work) and her willingness to play bad-cop in negotiations. No hesitations about recommending her."

Paul Pyzowski, CEO, Diagnostic Laboratory Medicine


"It has been great working with Anja as I have been totally impressed with her knowledge of the deal landscape. She is one of the most thorough people I have come across in all my years of doing business. This is the biggest attribute I belive you need when looking for someone that is handling a sale of one's business. I would highly recommend Anja to anyone who is serious about a possible exit strategy for one's business. I hope to work with her on other future projects as we continue to build out our web properties."
