Angela, if the sale involved the transfer of real estate you should be able to tell from the real property records in the county where the real estate is located. Otherwise it is virtually impossible to know when the company was sold unless you were a party to the transaction and have access to the transaction documents, or unless the company is publicly traded, in which case you would be able to access the information on the SEC web site.
