Services we provide
Exit Strategy Consulting: (Free Consulting). This is a free consulting to help prepare the business for Sale. Broker will review the Business, its financials, lease, and market opportunity, and make recommendations on what the owner should do in the next 12 to 24 months to help prepare the business for sale.

Business Strategy Consulting: (Fixed Priced Consulting) Broker will review the business, its financials, lease, and market opportunity. Broker will then make recommendations to manage the business, its expenses, its cost of goods, and its revenues. If working capital is limiting the growth of the business, then Broker will work with SBA lenders to help Business get loans.
Sale of the Business: (Commission based on Actual Business Sale Price):
Time & Expense Savings: Eliminate the time and expense of advertising and interacting with every person who inquires. Owners handling the sale directly tend to get inundated with unqualified inquiries. On the other hand we will be advertising on 10 different web sites and will send this information to all the appropriate prospects people in our database. Broker has no problem interacting with every prospect, screening them and finding suitable candidates.
Database of Buyers: We have a database of buyers that are looking for businesses to buy.
Confidentiality: If the prospective buyers call you directly it is very difficult to maintain confidentiality. We will have the prospects sign a confidentiality agreement before disclosing any specifics about the business and will repeatedly inform them to maintain strict confidentiality. Owners handling the sale directly have no way to maintaining confidentiality. This can lead to your customers and your competitors becoming aware of the impending sale of your business. This could cause serious damage to your business.
