About Me

Company Information: Vaughan Company Business Opportunities, a division of NAI The Vaughan Company, deals exclusively with the sale of businesses. Since its inception in 1987, this division has closed more than 800 transactions, with 41 transactions in 2007. During the year, we also provided several appraisals for clients who needed them for estate planning, ownership disputes, divorces or simply curiosity. Our typical buyer is a 40 - 55 year old professional man or woman, who is a product of corporate America and currently living outside New Mexico. Vaughan Company Business Opportunities consists of nine full-time agents, and a proven merger and acquisition program that applies "big business" expertise to the marketing and sale of small businesses, up to $9 million in value. These businesses require a more diversified marketing effort than is generally available in cities the size of Albuquerque. Locally, 275 Vaughan commercial and residential agents provide a steady stream of client referrals. Each year Vaughan Company spends more than $400,000 on advertising (newspaper, television and six national web sites), and our web site [] receives dozens of hits each day. Our marketing program begins with a professional evaluation to properly position a business within the competitive Albuquerque market. A comprehensive marketing package is then prepared for discreet distribution to qualified prospects who have signed a Confidentiality Agreement. If a prospect wants to pursue a specific business, a meeting is arranged between the seller and buyer to discuss the more proprietary aspects of the company. If this meeting is successful, it is then appropriate for the seller and buyer to exchange financial information. Vaughan Company Business agents help sellers identify key objectives and implement an appropriate marketing strategy. Having worked with hundreds of attorneys and CPAs, we can anticipate problems before they occur and avoid "surprises" that may kill a deal. Since only full-time professionals deal with prospective buyers, confidentiality is maintained through the closing. We believe every sound transaction is founded on a "win-win" philosophy. Business agents and their clients benefit from the synergism created through association with our other commercial groups: retail, apartment, office and industrial brokering and leasing. As the exclusive New Mexico representative of New America International (NAI), the largest affiliation of independent commercial real estate firms in the world, we have global access to both buyers and sellers. All of these features help to make the Vaughan Company New Mexico's only full-service, commercial and residential real estate Superstore.
