You’ve put so much time, effort, energy, and money into making your business prosperous. When the time comes to sell it, you of course want to have the most successful sale possible. In order to have a positive experience, sell in the shortest amount of time, for the most money possible, you need to align yourself with an amazing business broker to get the job done.
The Green & Co Difference
We are an award-winning business brokerage with a stellar track record of 82% of our listings successfully sold - more than three times the statewide average.
The secret of our success is based in our attention to constant improvement of our processes, and our focus on providing not only service, but excellence.
The Keys To Our Success
Here's why our buyers and our sellers rate us so highly.
One of the biggest factors of a successful sale is the asking price. Our experienced team offers a free valuation of your business and consults with you to ensure that it is priced accurately, at a point which is a win-win outcome for both buyer and seller.
While other brokers may simply list a business on the MLS and provide a prospective buyer with last year's financials, our marketing department creates cutting-edge print, video and digital marketing materials which give the buyer the information they really want to know.
Selling a business requires time, effort, and extensive communication. Too often we hear sellers say their previous experience was marred by a lack of communication. We keep you in the loop at every turn. For example, we send regular seller updates highlighting buyer activity on the listing.
The lessons of experience
We've been there. We have the experience of buying and selling businesses of our own, as well as helping countless other business owners do the same. Members of our team have backgrounds not only in business, but in finance, law, technology, marketing and much much more. We know how to value your business, how to price it for sale, how to find the right buyer, and how to get it to the closing table.
Coupled with our extensive network of attorneys, lenders and other business professionals, we are uniquely positioned to ensure that your experience with us is both smooth and positive.
Getting the right message out
When a seller lists a business with us, we swing into action immediately to figure out exactly the right strategy for selling it. We research the industry as well as the market, and interview the seller to find what makes the business unique.
Having this information, we build a beautiful 16-page brochure and an eye-catching video for each and every new listing, detailing everything a buyer needs to know about the business.
A friendly voice
One of the most disheartening things we hear in our industry is when customers tell us that they listed their business with another brokerage, and then never heard from them again.
We pride ourselves on our communication. When you are working with us, you will receive frequent updates. You'll know how many people have inquired on your business, you'll know when we have potentially serious interest - and you'll know the moment an offer hits the table.
“The Green & Co. team are exceptional business brokers. Exceptional because they are professional, effective & excellent communicators. They understand business & its complications & are ethical, caring, hardworking and perceptive. All in all, they are undoubtedly the best business brokerage I could recommend and we have tried a few over the years. 6 out of 5 in our book—and they have just successfully sold our company. Thank you!”
“Green & Co. are wonderful and pleasant to work with. The level of knowledge and professionalism can't be surpassed. We had several offers on our company, and they were on top of every little detail making sure we had the best deal there is and catching errors made on behalf of other brokers. I would and do recommend Green & Co. to anyone who would like to sell (or buy) their company.”
