Winston Hines not only found my organization a unique multi Club acquisition opportunity, but with good negotiation skills, he helped us come to terms


I wanted to say thank you for all your assistance in the purchase of the club. Your assistance with regards to all aspects of the purchase was amazing from start to finish. Your follow up through out the process made the purchase much simpler than ever could have been expected. Your knowledge of the industry and asking the right questions from our first conversation really helped to narrow down the search and we were able to find a great club for me to put my many years of experience in. Look forward to working with you in the future for the purchase of another club.

Winston worked with me in the acquisition of my new Club in Indiana. In representing his Sellers, his thoroughness, professionalism, and fairness, kept the Purchase of the Business and the Real Estate on track. I look forward to working with Winston again.
