We Speak Small Business

  Both Michael and I are successful small business owners and entrepreneurs in our own right. We understand what it means to put a business under a microscope in an effort to cut expenses or to take advantage of new opportunities. We also understand the emotions involved when making major decisions like buying or selling your business, entering into a lease obligation, purchasing  expensive equipment, and making important operating decisions like hiring or employee layoffs.     


As business brokers, we have represented a wide variety of businesses, spanning from ice cream shops, restaurants, gas stations, car washes, hotels, retail stores, to professional services and more.  We would like our clients to know that we, too, have been there and have experienced many of the same emotions and stresses that you will go through when buying or selling your business. We get it, and we are here to support you and represent you!
