How Do You Sell A Business?

Deciding to sell your business can be scary and without a knowledgeable guide, it can be overwhelming and confusing, not to mention a legal and tax nightmare. Our process is specifically designed to assist first time sellers and streamline the process for more experienced sellers:


Step 1: We perform a Comprehensive Business Assessment. This process allows us to fully understand your business, establish a fair market price, and prepare you for the sale.


Step 2: We Confidentially List and Market the business. With 90% of our buyers coming from outside the area, we use numerous sophisticated marketing techniques to attract the perfect buyer for your business.


Step 3: We Qualify Buyers. By knowing what questions to ask, we can quickly profile each buyer and determine their ability to successfully operate your business and financial ability to purchase your business.


Step 4: We negotiate for you. As trained negotiators, this step drastically increases the sale price as we are not emotionally attached to the business.


Step 5: We support you through due diligence. Half the job is finding the buyer, the other half is getting the deal closed. We work with accountants, lawyers, banks, landlords, and other third parties that could jeopardize the success of the transaction. We realize that you depend on us to guide you through the sale of your business and we make the transition simple and easy for you.


Lastly, Step 6: We get the deal closed. From managing all the administrative procedures, licenses, inventory counts, and lease assignments that may be required for you and your buyer, we work closely with you and your advisors to ensure a smooth transition. Using the latest technology, we are ready to work on your behalf to get the deal done!


“Simon is an intelligent and collaborative partner who has the ability to think out of the box to establish

profitable solutions tailored to the individual scenario”


– John Dwyer

How Much Is My Business Worth?

What is the value of my business is the number one question that all sellers ask when contemplating a sale, and of course, the concern of most buyers when purchasing a business. 


Truthfully, a business is worth what a buyer is willing to pay and a seller is willing to accept. Often business owners reminiscence about all the hard work and money they have put into their business and have a set number that they think the business must be worth. Unfortunately, if that number does not match what buyers are willing to pay, the business is overpriced
