Murphy Business & Financial Corporation-

We go the extra mile before accepting a listing to insure ourselves that we can perform for you. Simply listing your business with a business broker does not mean it will sell nor does it mean that the broker is going to be pro-active in trying to market and sell your business. At Southern Business Advisors, we will not accept a listing that does not fit our profile. If we don’t have a staff member or an affiliate who is intimately familiar with your type business and can work diligently on your behalf, we will not waste your time or ours. The key to your and our success is affecting a Closing not a Listing.

When you trust your business to Murphy Businessyou can rest in the fact that your business will not simply be “inventory”. It will be marketed to your satisfaction; guaranteed.

Selling your business is a major decision. You have devoted your time, money and energy to building and operating your business. It may well represent your life’s work. If you have decided that now is the time to sell, you deserve the best professional guidance you can get. Our President has been buying and selling business for over 40 years. He knows the emotions that are involved in selling your business.
