We Know How to Get Deals Done.

Many businesses owners become frustrated with the process of selling their business because they list the business with a broker who doesn’t have the knowledge and experience to get the deal done. To sell your business, you don’t need to list it with a broker. You need a buyer. And that’s who we bring to the table.

Don’t List Your Business. Sell It.

Pocket watch and moneyThinking about selling your business but don’t want to list it with a broker? Let us find a buyer.

Here’s our offer:

  • Let’s get together so we can learn about your business.
  • We will then explain how we would value the business.
  • If our valuation is acceptable, we will begin the search for a buyer.
  • We only work with qualified buyers who sign a confidentiality agreement.
  • No information about the business will be released without your approval.
  • If we find a buyer for the business, then we get paid a fee at closing.
  • If you find a buyer, there is no obligation to pay us a fee.
  • You can change your mind at any time and decide not to sell.

Think about the advantages. You don’t have to commit to an exclusive listing agreement with a broker who may or may not do a good job. You don’t have to worry about explaining to employees and customers why your business is listed for sale. And if you find a buyer yourself – congratulations! You have no obligation whatsoever. It really is a win-win deal.
