Selling Your Business?

What’s your business worth? If you currently own a business and thinking about selling, this is a number that you can’t afford to miss. Murphy’s valuation process produces business valuations that are so accurate they’re within 5% of the sales closing price.



Most businesses that sell in the $300,000 to $10mm range in Eastern North Carolina are bought by either financial buyers or individuals who plan to own and operate the business themselves.  At Murphy, we have built relationships with thousands of prospective individual buyers in the South East and across the country who are actively seeking the right business opportunity.  One of the many benefits of working with us as your business broker is that you will immediately have access to this large and highly-qualified buyer pool that we have spent the last 20 years building.  It is common that when we list a new business we draw attention from this existing buyer pool, even before beginning our advertising programs to reach buyers outside of our network.


At Murphy, we don’t just list your business and generate offers.  Our team believes in a full-service approach. This starts with your initial consultation and business valuation, where we’ll create an estimate of your business’ value.  We then list and market your business to generate interest, and carefully screen the prospective buyers who contact us. All of this is done confidentiality, without mentioning the name of your business or other sensitive details. Qualified prospective buyers then sign and NDA agreement and allowed access to additional information, with your approval. Should the buyer request a meeting with you, we’ll assist you before and during the meeting. Once an offer letter is received, we will explain the various terms of the offer to you, and counsel you about accepting, rejecting, or issuing a counter-offer.  Once an accepted offer is in place, we’ll then assist you during the due diligence phase, and recommend any outside professional assistance that you may need such as accountants or lawyers. Finally, when due diligence is completed it is then time for closing, at which point all of the final papers are signed and the funds are transferred. At this point you’ve now successfully sold your business.

Sound too good to be true? It’s not!  With an office located right here in Eastern North Carolina, Murphy is Eastern North Carolina’s most successful small business broker. We have nearly an 85% success rate in selling businesses that we list. Join the others and get started on the path to selling your business.
