Much like any other business, a business brokerage's success is built on relationships, trust and confidence.

What sets me apart from other real estate professionals, however, is confidentiality. Putting a ‘For Sale’ sign in front of a  house is standard practice, but putting a ‘For Sale’ sign in front of a business would hurt sales and customer relationships, as well as cause confusion, fear, and even panic among employees.

My clients rely on me to keep their information confidential. Therefore, businesses listed for sale are identified only in general terms.

If you’re ready to sell your business, I can provide a Broker’s Opinion Letter – an estimate of your business’ value based on the information you provide – at no cost, no obligation, no strings attached.

If you’re ready to buy, I will find a business that is right for you.
