Buyers: We seldom take on a seller client whose property must be posted for sale on M&A sites (or even our own Current Listings page). This is because we have a good book of buyers and we are usually able to match them up with sellers without the need for a search. That means you should call or email us so we know you exist and what your purchase parameters are. —- Sellers: The market is still at about 3.5 x EBITDA; now is a great time to sell. Don’t wait for your sales to level off or decline. Almost nobody wants to buy a business with declining sales!

We aren’t just intermediaries; we are advisors. We serve as the quarterback of the process–your advisors–and guide you along every step from appraisal to closing. Brokers match buyers and sellers, we get you to the closing: cash in the bank.

We take few, select clients. The “throw them against the wall and see what sticks” mentality is not our style. If we mutually agree to work together you will receive first-class service with experts that are experienced in every step of the process of transferring business ownership.

Our team has been in business for 12 years and has closed transactions in excess of $500 Million dollars in revenues. A team approach is the best way to achieve success. We work your closing with your other professionals–accountants, attorneys, and money managers.

Most people sell a business once in their lifetime. You need someone you can trust to safely get you through the entire process. That’s us.
