Please contact us to get first shot at our unadvertised "quiet" opportunities. SELLERS -- HOW WE REPRESENT YOU: INITIAL MEETING: We review all relevant information, recast your financial statements considering discretionary perks, accounting adjustments etc., discuss price, terms, timing, fees, confidentiality and marketing options.

Larger businesses (over $1 Million) requiring a broader exposure are marketed through our national broker affiliations (1,500 member IBBA & PBBA see below), WSJ, etc. Smaller businesses (under $1 Million) located in suburban Philadelphia: Our years of actual experience has shown that 95% of buyers who actually buy Southeastern PA businesses come from the region -- allowing us to use our extensive database and market knowledge to maximum competitive advantage. WE SCREEN AND QUALIFY all buyers. Business names and other identifying information are not disclosed until we meet with and qualify prospective buyers, and they sign a Non-Disclosure Agreement. REPRESENTATION: We protect your interests, represent and negotiate on your behalf to obtain the best price and terms,coordinate pre closing activities (financing, gov agencies, franchise co etc) so you leave the settlement happy and protected.
