Florida Business Brokers d/b/a The Beech Group

www.FloridaBizMLS.com

Florida Business Brokers sells businesses for Florida business owners ranging from a few thousand dollars up to $40 million dollars. Our business broker agents use their prior industry experience to focus business sales on specific categories of businesses. While some of our agents specialize in grocery store sales, some specialize in gas stations, and others will focus on more complicated businesses like manufacturing or distribution businesses. In any case, business owners can expect to be paired up with a business broker who has the background and industry knowledge to make the most of any business sale.

Whether your business is in Jacksonville or Miami, Florida Business Brokers has a broker to handle your sale. With over 30 top business broker agents placed in cities around Florida, no matter where a business is located, owners can meet up with a business broker who has access to a marketing and sales network in that area. Miami, Fort Lauderdale, West Palm Beach, Orlando, Tampa, and Jacksonville are our base locations. From these cities, brokers travel in the field to visit and meet with business owners in nearby locations. We can sell a restaurant in Sarasota, a C-Store in Miami or a factory in Sanford. Our business broker agents are ready to meet with any business owner throughout Florida.

Selling a business in Florida can take some time. Most businesses sell within nine months if they are reasonably priced. An overpriced business can take years to sell if at all. Our business broker agents have years of experience and training to assist you with valuing your business and marketing it to sell in a timely manner. Our agents have your business goals in mind when assisting with setting a target sales price and time to sell. Selling your business can also be seasonal. Some businesses will sell better in the summer months and some will sell better in the winter months. All of this information plays into the strategy for timing the sale of a business.

Business sales and commercial real estate.

William M. Thomas “Bill Thomas” works as a business merger advisor and attorney, and is licensed in New York and Florida. He specializes in selling businesses and commercial properties in Florida. Being both an attorney and a broker gives Mr. Thomas a competitive edge that has proven to be of great benefit to his clients. He is highly respected and trusted within the South Florida business community.

For the first 12 years of his legal career, he handled thousands of real estate and business closings and foreclosures. As a successful entrepreneur, he subsequently started a factoring company together with a collections law firm that is based in NY, and still in operation today with very little input from himself. Over the last 15 years, he has handled many multi-million-dollar business and commercial closings for South Florida business owners as a business advisor.

Bill currently runs The Beech Group which is the M&A division of Florida Business Brokers, a highly successful business brokerage. He has 25 operating agents throughout Florida that have gone through his training program, and he is working on publishing a book to help other business advisors train their agents to become successful business broker agents.

Mr. Thomas is known throughout the industry by a network of people looking to set up deals. Through his years of experience, he has developed contacts with the best accountants, attorneys, lenders, most active equity funds, most active brokers, and qualified investors. This allows him to get the word out and bring deals to the table sooner than most others in his industry.

Bill’s niche is upper main street and middle market business sales (with sales revenues over $1 million). He is able to accomplish a high percentage of deals due to his focus on organization and preparation. His sales model starts with doing the due diligence for his sellers prior to making a strategic decision to sell and prior to creating a pricing model for the proposed sale. His preparedness allows him to maintain a closing ratio above 83% compared to the industry average of 22% for business brokers.
