Selling a Business

Selling businesses is our business and we offer complete advisory and brokerage services performed in a strictly confidential manner. If you are thinking of selling, or even considering it, I encourage you to give us a call or send us an email. There is no charge for an exploratory consultation and they are strictly confidential. For additional information, visit the Selling a Business section here on our site.

Preparing a Business

We understand that the decision to sell a business is a serious decision. We can’t make the decision to sell for you, but we can give you the information you need to help make it. We can tell you about current market conditions, pricing and structuring the business so it will sell, getting it ready for sale, and answer any other questions you may have. You might also want to review the articles under Selling Your Business that is also available on our site.

Buying a Business

For anyone considering the purchase of a business, we offer no charge consultations and an excellent inventory of businesses for sale complete with all of the information a serious buyer would want to review. You might want to visit the Buying a Business section of our site for more articles on buying a business. We encourage you to register on this site and become one of the first buyers aware of new Gulf Coast business listings. This is the first place our coastal businesses are listed. We are also happy to answer any questions you might have that are not covered in our Buying a Business section.

Business Coaching and Consulting

Perhaps you have decided to keep your business but you need some new perspective or a different approach to operations. We offer a no charge exploration call to see if our custom coaching of consulting service may be a great mutual fit. We can help you as a Fractional Gulf Coast COO, Fractional Gulf Coast CFO, or change implementer depending on your goals and current needs.
