Has anyone surveyed or seen a credible report that tells us whether owners, sellers, and brokers are more impressed when approached by a searcher identifying as an individual person or as a business entity? If so, please share your insight.

I particularly would like to hear from people on the other side of the dealmaking table; sellers and their representatives.

My interest is solo, self-funded searchers. Not Searchfunds.

I’m asking this because there seems to be some negative reaction, particularly among the brokerage crowd, re Searchfunders.
