About Me

I have been a serial entrepreneur since the age of 21 when I purchased my first company while still in college. I sold that business through a business broker 13 months after purchasing it for 450% of my purchase price, and have been hooked on buying, selling and brokering the sale of businesses ever since. I began my brokerage career at VR Business Brokers in Charlotte, NC at the age of 24. Twelve years later I have started nearly a dozen different companies. One of my most successful businesses was an investment banking company, S&P Capital, that brokered the sale of mid-market companies valued between $1MM to $50MM. After a brief hiatus from the brokerage industry following the burst of the U.S. real estate bubble to devote my energy to capitalizing upon the opportunities that existed in the local real estate market here in Charlotte, I am back consulting and brokering deals in the small business world. I am very selective in the businesses that I take to market in this space, as I only take on opportunities that are priced sharp and will sell quickly. The predominance of my time is spent in real estate investment and developing and providing strategic sales and marketing consulting for businesses of all sizes. With my many years experience as a broker I cannot pass on an opportunity to assist a small business owner in implementing an exit strategy when I'm confident that the project can be accomplished quickly and efficiently due to them having a well-priced and impressive operation. If you are looking at one of the businesses that I have listed for sale, rest assured it's a great opportunity or I wouldn't be investing my time assisting the owner in selling it!!!
