About Me

We are professional Maryland business brokers who represent small Maryland business owners in the Washington-Baltimore metro area. Whether your business grosses $100,000 a year, or up to $1,000,000, I can provide the resources, and tools needed to find you a qualified buyer, and the experience to bring the sale of your business to a successful conclusion. I believe I have the most effective confidential business opportunities marketing program in Maryland. Below you will find a list of professional business brokerage services I offer my clients. Confidential valuation service: I can provide assistance in determining the approximate current fair market value of your Maryland business for the purpose of current or future sale. Professional business valuation Software, formulas, market comparisons, and my in depth experience with the Maryland market place are all used as guides to determine a realistic and supportable offering price. Business brokers have consistently produced higher prices and smoother sales when one of these reports is presented as part of the business offering package than similar business produced that did not have the benefit of a comprehensive valuation report. FREE Comprehensive Valuation report on your Business, when I list your business! Innovative marketing: Selling a business is a process. Whether it is via the Internet, newspapers, trade publications, or through my numerous professional affiliations, I have the resources, creativity, and experience to effectively market your Maryland business while at the same time maintaining the highest level of confidentiality possible. Maximum exposure: My affiliation with the World’s largest Association of Business brokers, the International Business Brokers Association (IBBA), coupled with my contacts with other reputable professional organizations and brokers, will give your business maximum confidential exposure to the largest buyer data base available in Maryland. Today, the IBBA has more than 1,300 cooperative business brokers and intermediaries across the World! No marketing fees: I charge no "Up Front" fees to confidentially market your business for sale. I work on a commission basis only. We have Better rates for fees charged for our services, which mean Better Benefits for you the Seller. In short, I only get paid if I find a qualified buyer for your business. Maximum Internet exposure: With out a doubt, the Internet has emerged as the most powerful and effective tool available to business brokers for confidentially marketing small businesses for sale. I can assure you that no business broker in Maryland leverages the strengths of the Internet more than me to find qualified buyers for my clients. I also place all my listings on four National fee based web sites that are recognized as the best and most popular in the business. These sites give my listings vast exposure to individual and corporate buyers throughout the country who are considering relocating, or acquiring businesses in Maryland. All of these web sites receive top rankings by all the major search engines including: Yahoo, Google, MSN, AOL, Alta Vista, Lycos, and others. Confidentiality: I understand and respect the confidential nature of selling a business. Unlike the sale of real estate, maintaining confidentiality among your employees, suppliers, customers, and direct competitors is a paramount concern. All advertisements are run in a confidential manner, never naming the business, it's location, or other specific information. All inquiries are thoroughly screened. All prospective buyers are required to execute confidentiality agreements before they ever see your business, or receive any pertinent information about your business. I will work closely with you to make sure your comfort level is met or exceeded regarding protecting your confidentiality. Buyer qualification: All prospective buyers are required to execute a confidentiality agreement and are screened for both business and financial capability before receiving any detailed information about your business. It is my job to separate the serious and qualified buyers from the mere "Tire Kickers & Non Risk Takers." By diligently qualifying and screening prospective buyers, I can save you valuable time and help maintain the highest level of confidentiality possible. Negotiation: I guide the entire Business Sale process, and provide assistance to the seller in the process of negotiating the best possible price, terms, and conditions of a sale. This also includes the preparation of contracts and related documents. As a professional I can often help head off and resolve issues that may become potential deal breakers. I can also provide referrals to professional attorneys, accountants, and financial sources that specialize in business sales.
