The Entire Process

Buyer Services
Buyer Services for the entire process provides you with a business acquisition specialist focused on helping you reach your business acquisition goals. 

We work directly for you to find your ideal business and buy it. 

This service is a fee based service.  For many, the only fee is a commission on the purchase of a business.  Some searches require a retainer.  The price and structure of the fees vary, so give us a call and we can quote you the cost while you are on the phone.   

For companies interested in mergers and acquisitions, we offer services that are exclusively success drive.

This service is all inclusive and will help you through the entire business acquisition process.  It includes all the steps in the process including:
Help you get focused on what you are really trying to do and work with you to determine what you can afford to do.  We talk about your experience, skills, gifts and most importantly GOALS.  The more we know the better chance we have to find the RIGHT business.

Next we search for a business that fits your criteria.  This search  includes everything from working with brokers in the area to contacting businesses that fit your criteria that are not currently on the market, but the owner is interested in a transition.

After we find businesses we will go with you to visit the company, talk with the owners, gather financial and operational information.   During the visit we will be looking for potential problems or areas of concern and help you properly consider these areas.

We will give you an honest assessment of how your specific experience, skills, gifts will fit into the business.  We will also see if it can help you reach your GOALS.

Once you are ready to make an offer, we will help by providing valuation information, evaluate purchase options, understand financing available and provide a template for making the offer.

We will present offer and help you negotiate the deal.  Always working in your best interest.
