Over the past nine years, we have worked closely with C2G Advisors on all sides of transactions. The C2G team played a valuable role in our transactions. With over 1000 units spread across multiple markets and a complex cap table, C2G expertly navigated us through the multi-month process. Without the Olins, the transaction may not have closed. I highly recommend them to anyone looking for guidance throughout the M&A process.
Buying a property management company is an area which requires seamless communication between the buyer and seller. In my experience, there are business brokers who are deal makers and others that are deal breakers. Jim Olin and Jacobie Olin of C2G Advisors have been the consummate deal makers. Their communication, diligence and follow through make them ideal in managing the entire buy / sell process to a successful close. I would highly recommend them
We have had the pleasure of working with C2G Advisors (Jacobie and David Olin). They are transparent, run a professional process, and act with high ethics. They are truly experts in the vacation rental industry.
Jacobie Olin and C2G were wonderful to work with while negotiating the sale of my business, Mt Hood Vacation Rentals. They assisted me throughout the entire process with all of the complexities and nuances of selling a vacation rental business and they were always just a phone call or text away when I had questions. I could not have done it without the C2G team and I highly recommend other VRMC owners to use them when the time comes to sell their business.
Thank you, David and Jacobie! I very much appreciate your assistance in the sale of my company. You really made the experience a positive one for me. Looking back, it was almost effortless considering the scope of things. All the best to you!
We purchased a business where C2G represented the seller and even though they were on the other side of the transaction I felt like they were accommodating to us in the process. By far the most organized and persistent team and very quick to communicate and knock out their side of the transaction task lists. After we closed, I really got to see how much work they put into the preparation for the former owner and 2 years later, we still have a great relationship with the former owner and C2G. I definitely recommend using them and will be using their services as we acquire other companies, or even sell our own in the future.
I have had the pleasure of working with C2G on both the buy and sell side of transactions. Their professionalism and expertise is unmatched in the vacation rental industry
“Jim Olin and his team were extremely helpful in assisting us with a very complicated re-capitalization of our company. Without his advice and expertise, I doubt it would have been this successful.”
"Our sale included everything from multiple closings, family trusts, a 1031 Exchange, and unique state requirements. C2G Advisors maneuvered us through every step and finally a successful, timely closing. The C2G team was always available via phone call, text, and email, even for post-closing guidance. We couldn’t have done it without them."
"This deal would have never happened without you.. If there is ever a seller (or buyer) who is unsure if they should need your service please have them contact me."
C2G Advisors represented me in the sale of my company to a Buyer that was actually related to the C2G principals. Their ethics were unmatched and their transparency was refreshing. Three years after the sale, I still cannot be happier.
C2G has been a vital part of our growth strategies, both for onsite management as well as the opening of our Castle Vacation Rentals brand. A much trusted advisory partner.
"Jim is a master negotiator and has a knack for bringing clarity to a situation. On several occasions, after sizing up an opportunity, it has been his recommendation for me to walk away. His ability to bring logic to an otherwise emotional situation has saved me a lot of money."
"The sale of ResortQuest to Gaylord in 2002 was both a complicated and difficult process. From the initial negotiations to the closing date, Jim Olin spearheaded the entire effort, which resulted in both a significant value increase for our shareholders, and a smooth transition for our customers and employees."
“I could not be more pleased with the work Jim and C2G provided during the recent sale of my company. He made sure that, not only did I get a fair price for my company, but all the ‘moving parts’ were handled correctly. I am completely satisfied, and have already recommended him to a colleague."
"Even though C2G was representing the other party in our transaction, I was very impressed with their professionalism and drive to get the deal closed. It would have been difficult to get done without them."
"We needed a combination of strategic direction, operational enhancements, and a potential exit strategy. Jim Olin helped us on all three. I recommend C2G Advisors wholeheartedly."
“C2G Advisors helped me in many ways with my marketing, unit procurement and overall growth strategies. We were very pleased with their expertise and first-hand knowledge of the industry, and their ability to help us garner new revenue opportunities.”
"Jim was the ‘quarterback’ for the sale of our company. The process was organized and efficient, allowing us to complete a closed transaction in less than 45 days. I am extremely satisfied with Jim's involvement in helping us to achieve our goal."
“Without the help of C2G, I doubt we would have been able to wind through the intricacies and challenges that faced our rapid growth. C2G kept us focused, and provided the expert oversight needed for us to achieve our goals. They continue to be the first company we call for help."
“Jim Olin has shown the unique ability to manage multiple mergers and acquisitions at one time, while at the same time continuing to manage the day-to-day operations of a large multi-national company. A proven leader with proven successes.”
