About Us

HomeAbout Us


As expert Business Brokers and Valuators, we are focused on one thing: maximizing your net worth through the sale of your business.

You get one chance to sell what is likely your most valuable asset: your business. Work with the team that has managed transactions for almost 40 years with a significantly higher successful closing ratio than the national average. That means not only do we have access to quality buyers, but we know how to overcome obstacles that crop up in every business sale. We know how to get your business sold in the shortest amount of time and for the best price.

Knowledge, Experience, and Results

As one of the few specialty Certified Public Accounting and litigation firms in the nation operating solely in the area of business sales and valuations, our ability to navigate and solve complex legal, tax, and accounting problems will help put more cash in your pocket. Our unique skill-set helps to bridge the gap between your financial team (including your accountant, attorneys, and wealth advisors) and the buyer’s team where challenges often arrive. We work to ensure an efficient process and tax-advantaged results. Though our large network of buyers and private equity groups is international, our approach to client service is boutique. We limit the number of engagements we accept so that each and every client receives the time and attention they deserve. Superb customer service is a standard we exceed every day.

What’s with the Jelly Beans?

If you’ve been to our office or spoken with us at an event, you might notice that we often hand out Jelly Belly® jelly beans. It’s a tradition that makes people smile, but more importantly, it’s a reminder that as professional certified business brokers, we have an obligation to put more “beans” into our clients’ pockets. And that’s a commitment we enjoy fulfilling.
