Business Brokerage Services
Just thinking about buying or selling a business can easily become overwhelming, which is why most people put it off as long as possible. The fact that transferring a business could easily be the largest transaction that a person will ever do also adds a level of trepidation. When it comes to something so important, don’t go it alone without a trusted advisor. Let Ohio Valley Business Advisors guide you through the pitfalls. Our unique abilities, insight and experience will provide the services that you need.
Our Experience: With more than 45 years of corporate and small business experience, including senior management sales, marketing and operations, we understand businesses intuitively. We have lived the ins and outs of the nitty-gritty and we know where to find both the hidden gems in a business and the skeletons in the closets that could turn into land mines.
Our Competence: In addition to the traditional BA and MA degrees, we also have actively sought to develop ourselves professionally by acquiring premier industry certifications such as the Certified Business Intermediary (CBI) and the Certified Machinery and Equipment Appraiser (CMEA) designation. What does this mean to you? Our appraisals are compliant to the Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice (USPAP) standards, which are recognized as the standard for appraisal practices in the USA.
Our Marketing: We provide a complete marketing, advertising and sales strategy analysis utilizing a wide array of listing resources to present your company to the correct audience of potential buyers. We will search for the right buyer/seller match and focus only on win/win strategies.
Our Drive, Desire and Determination: We focus on the needs of only a few business brokerage clients at a time. Since we are small business owners ourselves, we have a level of drive, desire and dedication not available from large brokerage firms. We push to sell each and every business that we list, or we won’t take the listing. We bring fresh ideas and innovative perspectives to the table that are a result of our life experiences and diverse backgrounds which help us develop powerful combinations.
Our Discretion: All information obtained throughout our relationship will be held in the strictest of confidence and disseminated on an as needed basis. Potential buyers are pre-qualified and sign a confidentiality agreement before any information is transferred. Your situation and information will be kept confidential to the best of our ability.
