Selling a Business

When it comes to selling your business, you won't find more knowledgeable business brokers anywhere. We look as hard for the right buyer for your business as we would for a buyer for our own. Because of the careful, comprehensive work we do up front, the sales process is easier, faster and more efficient.

We help business sellers think strategically and maximize the value of their companies and their net worth long before it’s time to list them for sale. Our proven methodology delivers an 85-percent closure rate—nearly six times higher than the industry average.

First, we prepare a professional valuation of your business that determines its fair market value ensures that it's priced appropriately. Then we create a complete offering portfolio that provides more information than the typical one-page MLS form used by most business brokers. We include the details a registered, qualified buyer wants and needs to make a sound decision. This unique approach helps us sell a business in less time and for more money.

We design a custom plan to promote your business that includes targeted marketing, direct mail, consumer and/or trade advertising as appropriate. Because we market your business directly through our global networks and on multiple websites, we have hundreds of offices and thousands of business brokers working with us to bring you just the right buyer.

We understand the importance of maintaining confidentiality, so we share information about your business with potential buyers in stages as their level of interest heightens. We never disclose confidential information without a signed confidentiality agreement and disclose full information only after receiving an offer to purchase or a letter of intent. To help reduce the amount of seller financing you need to provide, we use our banking contacts to help your buyer arrange to finance, including traditional financing and U.S. Small Business Administration small business loans.

Listing your business is a big first step. We’ll be with you to help you take it—and guide you through the entire process of a successful sale.
