Talk to a Business Broker

Service Description

Whether you’re looking to buy or sell a business, a business broker should be your go-to for understanding the process and achieving maximum value.

The single most important financial transaction for you as a business owner is the sale of your company.

But did you know:

  • 95% of entrepreneurs do not know their business valuation
  • Only 10% have some form of exit strategy
  • Many business owners are unaware of the key drivers’ company value

A business broker understands that there are so many things to consider when you are planning your business exit or ownership transition and it can seem overwhelming.

If you have an existing business you’re looking to sell or are considering buying a small business, we invite you to book a one-on-one consultation with our business broker, Maxwell Webster of Pacific M&A and Business Brokers to decide what the next steps will look like, and how to best proceed.

If you have specific questions relating to an active sale or you would just like some suggestions or recommendations on how to start preparing your business to sell, let our expert guide you through the buying or selling process.
