I offer high-quality confidential brokerage services to individuals and small to mid-sized business owners looking to enter, expand or sell their current business concept. I am fully capable of working with most privately owned companies requiring representation to help them get the best possible results for their hard-work and investment. As a part of my services I offer in-depth analysis and evaluations of a businesses marketing potential, and financial information, quality packaging of the business information to distinguish it from competing businesses being marketed to increase it's sale-ability, and premier level confidential advertising that attracts the best and most qualified buyers in the business marketplace.

Ron Sterling has been directly involved as an intermediary or indirectly involved as the supervising intermediary of hundreds of negotiations for the sale of companies since 1986. Before he joined the Keller Williams Business Team, Ron was one of the most knowledgeable and experienced brokers within the internationally known VR Business Broker’s franchise for twenty-four years, and was constantly ranked as one of the top 10 VR agents nationally. Ron has helped a great many individuals to achieve their dreams of business ownership and others to attain their personal financial goals of a smooth and profitable sale, as he successfully facilitated the purchase and sale of hundreds of businesses of all types.

One of the keys to his success is that Ron believes every sale is the beginning of a long-term relationship, not the end of a short-term one. After more than two decades in this business, he has found that referrals have become the biggest part of maintaining his success. He tries to be a resource for buyers and sellers, and maintains contact with them long after the sale; helping Sellers find experts on legal and tax matters and helping buyers network with other successful people in their industry. He does all he can to increase their odds of success.

Prior to becoming a business broker, Ron gained first-hand knowledge of how a business owner feels during the marketing and sales process. Over twelve years, he owned printing and office supply businesses with multiple locations in the Puget Sound area. During that time, he was very active in the business community as Vice-President of the local chamber of commerce and a charter member of the local Lions club where he served as President. For many years, he was also very involved in the community as a youth leader in Boy Scouts and was a Commander for a Squadron of Civil Air Patrol cadets.
