My Services

Free Business Advisory Services

I provide free advisory services to anyone considering buying or selling a business. I are happy to answer any questions about these activities including pricing and valuation issues, exit strategies, business financing or any other subjects related to the purchase or sale of a business. I encourage you to visit the many informative areas of this website. Don’t hesitate to call me today.

Buying a Business

For anyone considering the purchase of a business, I 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 my site for more articles on buying a business. There is also a Questionnaire that helps me to help you in your search. There is also a question and answer section that might be helpful. I am happy to answer any questions you might have that are not covered in my Buying a Business section. Visit me soon!

Selling a Business

Selling businesses is my 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, why not give me a call. There is no charge for consultation and they are strictly confidential. Why not contact us today. For additional information, visit the Selling a Business section here on my site. There is also a short questionnaire there that will help me in my initial consultation.

Franchise Sales

I work with a number of leading local, regional and national franchise companies who want to expand on Vancouver Island. I will only provide you general information on franchises that I feel are excellent opportunities. And, I only work with franchisors who we know will follow through in providing all of the necessary information.

Franchise Resale’s

In the normal course of selling businesses, I often work on the sale of existing franchises. Other than the agreement between the business and its franchisor, it is the same as selling any other existing business. I am familiar with franchise regulations and requirements on the reselling of a franchise. If you are looking for a franchise opportunity, whether new or existing, I can help.

Business Valuation Services

It may not be time to sell or you may just be curious about what your business is worth. However, there are also other reasons why a business owner might require a business valuation. Such personal matters as marital or partnership issues, estate planning or other reasons may require an actual valuation of the business that can be defended if litigation is a possibility. I have the knowledge and experience to advise in these matters and to prepare the valuation if required.

Preparing a Business for Sale

The decision to sell one’s business is a serious step. I can’t make the decision to sell for you, but can give you the information you need to help make it. I 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 might. You may also want to review the articles under Selling Your Business that is also available on my site.

Other Services

I have professional affiliations with many different services that offer financing, franchising, accounting and legal advice and can provide the names of lawyers that are very familiar with small business and business transfer services. I belong to various websites that provide us with access to businesses for sale all over the country as well as associations that provide us with business brokerage and networking capabilities. I also have relationships with business intermediaries that specialize in very specific industries whose services I can call on if required. If it’s about privately-held businesses I can help!
