What to Expect – Buying a Business

We specialize in the confidential sale, acquisition, and valuation of privately held businesses. Our knowledge and competence means you’ll be assured your business and financials are being handled by brokers who offer:


In a lot of cases, buying an existing business is less of a risk than capitalizing on your idea for a start-up.


We are focused on managing your discretion and confidentiality if you’re not ready to broadcast to the world that you’re looking to buy.

Transparent Process

If you’re serious about this major life decision, you have to align your personal interests with your professional abilities and talents.

Follow Through

Ensuring that you’re following correct policies and procedures for success is a top priority for our team.


Settling on a price is just the first step in the negotiating phase of buying a business. Structuring of the sale is more important. Our trusted advisors know how to identify areas of opportunities to structure a deal that wins for you.


Valuation is often the most challenging part of the business acquisition process. And, it’s also the single most important, crucial step. With experience in valuing businesses, we’ll help you identify an offer price that’s reflective of the current market as well as competitive.

View All Buyer FAQs

Do I need an attorney and an accountant to buy a business?

Buying or selling a business can be a complicated venture. While some businesses are sold without the help of accountants and attorneys, we strongly recommend that both the buyer and seller engage professionals.

How Do I Know That The Profit Figures That The Sellers Claim Are True?

As part of the acquisition process, you will have to go through “due diligence.” During this period the seller is required to present documents to verify his profit numbers.

Will I Have To Come Up With The Entire Purchase Price?

No, while 100% of the purchase price is sometimes required, sellers will frequently provide owner financing to some extent. Additionally, a bank may be able to loan up to 80% of the purchase price through a loan sponsored by the Small Business Administration.
