Why Should I Use a Murphy Broker?
Not everyone can be a Murphy business broker. The standards to become a member of the Murphy team are high. All brokers must be former business owners or have held senior executive positions. In addition, most are highly credentialed professionals holding advanced certifications so you can be assured that they are experts in their field.
These experiences and credential give brokers an educated perspective on the value drivers within a business and how to maximize that value at the time of sale. It also allows them to uncover hidden value or areas of opportunity. Murphy provides the highest level of training and support in the industry with back office support that is second to none. You simply will not find a more qualified and professional organization.
Some common questions we hear:
How Will You Market My Business?
We’ll put together a professional presentation on the business that will include the company history, financial statements, pictures and anything else that is pertinent to your particular business. This presentation will only be released to potential buyers once they’ve signed a confidentiality agreement.
We will then go to work advertising your business and utilizing our vast network of brokers across the United States to achieve maximum exposure. You keep running your business and let us deal with all the inquiries that come in the door to see if they are ready, willing, and able buyers.
How Many Websites Will You Advertise My Business On?
Most buyers shop for businesses online like they shop for a house. Because this has become so common, Murphy has relationships with over 30 different websites that advertise businesses for sale.
Do You Co-Broke?
Some Business Brokers will not split their commission with another broker if that broker brings them a buyer. This effectively limits the buyer pool to only buyers that are working with that particular broker or their brand. That’s not good for the client and; therefore, it’s not part of our culture.
Murphy Co-Brokes which means that your business will have excellent placement on all the business-for-sale websites and will be visible to any business broker of any brand. They’ll see your business and will have a financial motive for finding a buyer even if they aren’t a Murphy Broker. THAT is good for the client.
