VR BUSINESS SALES - Spfd/Branson Office

VR is one of the oldest and largest business sales organizations in the U.S., with offices across the country and around the world. The Springfield-Branson office of VR Business Sales serves central, western, and southern Missouri.

We charge no up-front fees to business owners thinking of selling their business, and invest the time and advertising dollars in marketing our businesses for sale out of our own pocket. Then, if we have been successful in assisting the business owner in realizing their goal of an ownership transition, we receive a success fee at the closing of the sale.

We charge no fees to buyers, unless they engage us to search for a business to purchase that is not currently on the market.

VR has sold more business in the world than anyone. TM

At the VR Business Sales Springfield-Branson office, we have the experience, training, and expertise necessary to provide professional guidance to business owners thinking of an ownership transition in the next year or two or three, as well as to those who want to develop a long-term strategy for an eventual exit from the business. We can determine what the business would sell for in the current market, and improvements that could increase its value over time, thereby helping the business owner determine the optimum time to sell. We also offer business search services for buyers interested in finding a particular business suitable for them - which often is a business not currently being offered for sale in the general marketplace. Maintaining confidentiality throughout the entire business sale or acquisition process is critical to sellers and buyers. We develop with each client appropriate procedures to achieve the goal of obtaining for them the best possible price and terms while preventing employees or customers or vendors or competitors from knowing of the impending ownership transition.
