Leading Business Broker in Southwest Florida, Serving Naples to Sarasota


Green & Co. Business Brokers


The Green & Co. Difference

-We don't just list a business for sale and hope a buyer comes along. We actively search for buyers for all of our listings.

-We pride ourselves on going above and beyond when communicating with our sellers. One of the biggest complaints that we hear from business owners who have previously listed with another company is that they were listed and never heard from their broker again. We ensure regular and open communication.

-We have an extensive buyer database of buyers who are waiting for the right business to come on the market.

-We do more than just confidentially market our listings on the popular consumer websites and our central MLS, we use the best marketing tools and methods in the industry.

-Confidentiality is king, so we screen and pre-qualify every potential buyer.

It is our goal to make the process of either buying a new business or selling your current business as smooth and efficient as possible. We know how important confidentiality is to our sellers and we treat it with the utmost importance.

Creating a win-win outcome for all parties involved is what we believe makes or breaks a deal. We use our knowledge and experience in the business industry to your advantage. As a result, our clients always come first. We pride ourselves on being responsive, communicative and hard-working.

We have a "whatever it takes" attitude, and that is truly how we approach each and every business transaction that we help with.

“You need RICHARD! I found him online, and after reading about his background I gave him a call. In one call I realized that he is the person who I want to represent me in my business transaction. I am glad I found Richard who helped me buy my business! I told him many times "I would have not done it without your help!" He really helped me navigate through the whole process and made is easy, understandable and smooth. Buying is not an easy process, not something everyone does every day. So, you need his help and expertise to help you avoid making costly mistakes, negotiating with the sellers and closing on the transaction.” -Sam, Bought a Roofing Company in 2018

"Richard Green is a dedicated professional who goes the extra mile to deliver outstanding service to his clients. He is patient, responsive, fun to talk to and produces results! It has been an on-going pleasure to do business with him. I highly recommend his services." -Bonnie, Sold a Medi-Spa in 2018

"Richard is a dedicated, honest, trustworthy and dependable Broker, who I met while he was the sellers broker for a company I had interest in. After this deal fell through, (of course not by ANY of Richard ‘s doing), I requested he work for me as my broker. I never realized how important this decision would be, prior to doing so. Richard made this next venture work, and went above and beyond the call of duty to make this new deal happen. Had he not been involved, it is my opinion, (as well as the sellers opinion, per discussions after the sale), that this would have never happened. It was Richard’s hard work and determination (even working after hours at times, and part of his vacation) that made this transaction make it to closing. I would highly recommend using a buyers (or sellers) agent, and by far, this would be Richard Green. Bravo Richard!" -Charles, Bought a Furniture Repair Company in 2018

"Sold my business faster than I expected and held my hand the whole way. Great guy and great job." -Todd, Sold a Roofing Company in 2018

"I was very happy with Richard’s handling of the sale of my business. He was with me every step of the way. If I had another business, I would not hesitate to use him again or reccomend to friends or family." -Gloria, Sold an Autobody and Towing Business in 2018
