Our unique service is that we charge no Upfront fees or Exit Fees, we only charge a fee when there has been a sale. That means that we get rewarded on results not promises. What more can you want from your selling agent?

Each business sale is managed by its own Account Manager all of whom have many years experience of business and property sales. We provide wise counsel for our business vendors and do our best to get the best possible price while guiding our clients through the complex sales process. Our Account Managers are qualified across a range of sectors and professions from Accounting to Law to Real Estate and many of them have over 12 years experience in selling businesses. We are professional, experienced, knowledgeable and expert in our field.

Our many years of business sales experience means that there is probably not a business sale structure we have not seen nor a business sector sale we have not done.

We do not rely on just hope when we market a business for sale but rather we advise our clients on pricing their business realistically to achieve a sale, advertising across a huge range of business sale websites and national press adverts as well as to our huge database of vetted business buyers.

We identify the unique selling qualities of your clients’ businesses, we work continually and tirelessly to identify potential buyers for our clients’ businesses and we do everything we can to achieve a business sale in the shortest time for the maximum value.
