Appraisals / Asset Valuations
You need to know what to expect when you need an appraisal of your Business assets, machinery and equipment, and or inventory. Just what goes into a Certified Appraisal Report? A USPAP (Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice) compliant Report mandates specific information about the subject property to withstand scrutiny by the IRS, Lenders, Courts, Attorneys, CPA's, and others.

Business Valuation
The answer to that question can affect your most important decisions. Marketing & Consultant Services, Inc. provides a full range of business valuation services. Why would you need a business valuation? If you are in need of any of the following business planning or implementation strategies, you need a business valuation.

Business Brokerage
We represent Buyers (and Sellers) of Businesses. We are the intermediary and negotiator between Buyer and Seller, and serve to buffer the stress of this complicated process. We are there to explain the process, help identify issues, and solve problems.

Real Estate Appraisal
Focusing on Commercial and Industrial properties we work in virtually any of the United States of America. We are known for our expertise in appraising "unusual or complicated" properties.

Find out how you can turn equipment into cash. Time is Money! Don't hassle with newspaper ads that are costly and don't bring the buyers who are serious. In fact, after a long day, who wants to return phone calls to "unqualified" buyers? Isn't your time more valuable?
