“My wife and I met Mia Caetano Johnson as we embarked on our journey to purchase a campground. Mia’s extensive experience in buying and selling businesses combined with her thorough understanding of the campground industry made Mia an invaluable partner. When we are ready to sell our campground Mia will be the one and only call we make.” — Ted Candiloro & Angela Medici, Owners of Whip-o-Will Campsites, Purling, NY
“Mia was not merely a sales agent when we purchased our campground, she was a mentor and a teacher. We came to the process with little knowledge of the campground world and she was willing to spend hours with us on the phone providing us with big-picture knowledge of the market, finances, and the legal questions involved. The fact that she is an attorney gives her a particular perspective that takes the long view of things, especially helpful to us as, in our fifties, we know the limits of our time in this venture. Her explanations of the market, financial and legal processes, as well as the nuts and bolts of operating a campground were always thorough and clear. Her presence at our closing, not required, and effected by driving 8 hours in a December snow storm, gave us the confidence that we had someone on our side who could advise us to the end. And she even brought us a gift. Personal attention; a wealth of knowledge and experience in real estate, law and camping; a willingness to give of her time and honest perspective. She made us a whole lot less anxious in the process, more like a friend than a hired hand.” — Chuck and Laura Mills, Ashuelot River Campground, Swanzey, New Hampshire
“As the new owners of Sunfox Campground (formerly Deer Haven) in Lisbon, Connecticut, my wife and I are very thankful to Mia for all of her assistance throughout the search and purchase process. We came to know Mia as we began looking to buy a campground, and she eagerly showed us numerous parks throughout NY, MA and CT. Even though she represented the “seller” in the particular campground we chose, she was extremely helpful to us, both in terms of her knowledge of the process and her concern for both parties involved. She remained in steady contact, and was skilled in dealing with the lawyers representing the buyer and seller. While most prospective owners may have a good understanding of what it takes to OPERATE a campground, it is unlikely that they are adept in the purchase process. We would have certainly misjudged many aspects of the purchase without Mia’s guidance. Her involvement with the Northeast Campground Owners Association and individual state associations is visible to those in the industry. Not only would I highly recommend Mia to anyone looking to buy a campground, I have already suggested Northeast Campground Brokers to fellow campground owners who have indicated a potential interest in selling their park.” — Dave & Jen Nowakowski, Sunfox Campground (formerly Deer Haven Campground), Lisbon, Connecticut
