Choose to be Business Owner A and:
Businesses offered through business brokers have a much higher listing to closing rate than those offered through realtors or listed directly by business owners. We often hear that as owners trying to sell directly you become frustrated as you try to communicate the value of your business, or see potential buyers who walk away after you have spent a great deal of time with them. Our business brokers are trained to sell businesses. And that’s what they do!
You Deal With Qualified Buyers
Our business brokers know the market and have access to a database of active buyers—owner-operators, financial buyers and strategic acquirers—looking for businesses. We screen prospects for assuming your business so you won't waste time with "tire-kickers."
Our extensive network of professional contacts among accountants, lawyers, bankers, business coaches, consultants, wealth planners, insurance experts, venture and entrepreneurial sources also ensures that active buyers in the market are routinely, and in some cases exclusively, referred to us.
You Get Maximum Value
Small business financials do not tell the story. Experienced business brokers have the business and financial acumen to uncover the true benefits of ownership and illustrate them to the potential purchaser.
Our brokers have expertise in valuation principles, financial statement analysis, taxation implications, inventory, goodwill and so on. They know how to optimize the value of your business to move it up the value chain.
You Minimize Risk
The lower the perceived risk to a buyer, the more a buyer can afford to pay and the more a seller will receive.
We focus on finding the right business for the buyer—starting the transaction with a buyer that has the necessary experience, skills, ethics, financial resources, risk tolerance and passion is more likely to lead both parties to a successful outcome.
And we do it all confidentially. Telling the world that your business is for sale can cause it to lose employees, customers, suppliers and value.
You Save Valuable Time
Our process works for and protects both buyer and seller. While there are wide variations in the amount of time required to sell a business, a selling period of six to nine months is typical for a small business. And in the meantime, you can focus on running your business.
