The closure rate of Murphy Business Sales - Carolinas is double the national average. Also, our time on the market is less than the national average. How? We offer fair valuations, rigorous processes, and honest advice. We focus on listing businesses at a price the market data supports.

A small business is typically an owner's biggest asset. We can help you determine and receive the maximum value for that asset. If that value is below what you desire, we can help lay out a plan to reach your desired price. I am committed to working with you from consideration to completion of the sale.
