Pasadena Business Broker Process

Understanding the business sales process is a huge part of putting any anxieties or fears that you may have about business brokers to rest once and for all. Steve has put together a rock-solid formula for selling businesses that have helped his customers seal the deal time and time again.

It all starts with an in-depth consultation. Here, you’ll get to know each other, learn a little more about what Steve does, and discuss what your goals are for selling your business. Taking this into account, Steve gets to work on the first steps of his process.

The most important piece of the initial information you’ll get is a business valuation. Steve takes an in-depth look at your business, and using his expertise, calculates a fair and accurate business valuation. You’ll use this number to agree on a listing price that doesn’t leave a single cent on the table.

Then, Steve will create marketing materials that will attract the right buyers. These materials are crafted in a way that shines a positive light on your business and is tailored toward getting the word out to as many potential buyers as possible.

When interest starts flowing in, Steve works to screen potential buyers. This ensures that those who make it to the next round have the most potential for putting in an actual, fair offer. In other words, it saves you time dealing with parties who are not likely to be serious about closing the sale.

From the pool of potential buyers left, Steve stays by your side through the presentation, offer, and negotiation process. Then, once the sale is made, he handles the due diligence process on your behalf. He even gives you access to his connections with industry-leading lawyers, escrow companies, and accountants to seal the deal.
