Sly’s Restaurant owner James Sly stated:

“David Massie was recommended to me by a trusted banker and friend.
David has helped me on a three occasions, and each time I was extremely happy to have him on my side. I am a skilled chef and restaurant operator, but without David’s extensive knowledge and skills my restaurant would not have been nearly so successful.

Over the years, David helped us renegotiate our lease, helped us deal with the landlord’s sale of our building, and finally helped us stay on top of the complex situation of successful selling our business.

Mr Massie is the man you want on your team when you lease, buy or sell your business; he made an enormous difference for us at Sly’s in Carpinteria.

A cannabis business buyer in LA County wrote:

“David Massie was instrumental in helping me purchase my first cannabis growing business with a value of close to one million dollars .  He is very knowledgeable about contracts and drafted a custom one for both the purchase and the lease of the facility where the business is located as the seller required it; the seller was very difficult to deal with and David did a good job of working with the seller and making this deal happen while still making sure I get a good deal with a good contract.  I sleep much better at night because of David.” 

Jon Rumkin, Owner of Reliable Flooring Westlake Village CA.

And a gym purchaser in Thousand Oaks:

“I purchased a business and hired David to assist me. It was really helpful having someone knowledgeable about both sales and leasing contracts and with good negotiation skills since I was leasing space from a large mall landlord as part of the business purchase. He really saved me time and money on the lease in particular and I was able to avoid a lot of the pitfalls buyers and tenants like me fall into. Not only did David help me directly, but he came with a long list of legal and other resources that were invaluable.”

James Nagy, Owner of Gymboree Play & Music, Thousand Oaks CA.
