Designed to Maximize Overall Value

Our Experienced Business Brokers Will Guide You Step-by-Step
Through the Entire Sales Process

The process starts with a valuation. We have years of experience and use software to perform a detailed analysis of your business and provide you with a realistic valuation.

If you decide to move forward the next step is to complete a formal listing agreement.

We conduct an interview designed to highlight key selling points. Then our team gets to work on the custom tailored Confidential Information Memorandum (CIM). Our CIMs are designed to make your business shine. We get a lot of complements on our CIM's.

Once the CIM is approved we are ready to list. Our marketing is optimized to target real buyers that are actively searching for a business. We take steps to ensure 100% confidentiality.

Once serious buyers are identified we will coordinate introductions and tours. We are mindful of your time and careful about confidentiality.

When offers come in we thoroughly review and present them in a timely manner. We will keep you informed and advise you on all of your options so you can make the best possible decisions.

We will facilitate a professional negotiation, ensuring both the buyer and seller are aligned when we come to terms.

We will help coordinate an efficient, transparent, and orderly due diligence period.

The buyer typically presents the purchase agreement 2-4 weeks after coming to terms on the LOI. We make a point to always read and provide feedback on the purchase agreement. It is essential that a qualified attorney also reviews all legally binding agreements.

We help prepare and coordinate with all parties to make sure the closing goes smoothly. This is where the hard work pays off and the attention shifts to training the buyer to continue operating the business successfully. Congratulations!


Do You Have A Plan?

It Starts With A Valuation

Even if you don’t plan on selling, running a business with a mindset of value creation allows you to focus your time and money on investments that can have a major impact on the valuation in the future. A business that commands a higher value is inherently a more robust and efficient business. We can provide a valuation and advice on what can be done to increase value over time.
