Why should you use a business broker?

Any business owner who has sold a business on their own will tell you it’s a long and stressful process that consumes your time and distracts you from the day- to-day operation of your business. Valuing, marketing, negotiating and transferring a business are time consuming and distracting for an owner to manage while maintaining business continuity. After all, while buyers want to know the history of the business you built, the current results are an important factor in the value to be realized.

This industry is unregulated on a national basis and lightly regulated state by state. There are state, regional and national associations that provide codes of conduct, continuing education and conferences for professional development. As your broker and advisor, we will always act in a professional and ethical manner.

Confidentiality and Security

We market your business without current employees, customers or competitors being aware that your business is for sale. Based on your specific situation, we will suggest a process to ensure your information is provided only to qualified potential buyers. Prior to the exchange of sensitive information, prospective buyers are required to sign a strict confidentiality agreement.
