rewarding ownership transition.

How do you go about selling a business?

Chicagoland Sunbelt will oversee and manage the process so you can keep doing what you do best: managing your business.

Running your business is your expertise. Selling businesses is ours. Our well trained professionals, most of whom are previous business owners themselves, understand your needs. They are skilled negotiators with your best interests in mind as they overcome crucial challenges in deals every day.

With hundreds of businesses on the market, selling a business is a competitive ordeal. We can create a market that brings multiple buyers, giving you leverage to maximize price and terms. Our marketing efforts produce the greatest number of buyers who will be a good fit for your business.

We can market your business without employees, customers or competitors knowing. This is critical to the on-going operation of the business. All inquiries and meetings regarding the sale of your business are confidential. Prospective buyers are required to sign a Confidentiality Agreement and Non-Disclosure prior to us sharing information about your business.

Every day we encounter accounting practices that aim to minimize taxes when internal financials may present a different picture. A third party independent valuation is always recommended. Understanding what determines value will assist in best positioning your company.
