Would you like to buy or sell a business in Southwest Virginia?
Business owner, entrepreneur and former state trooper, Mike Keen, have recently purchased Sunbelt Business Brokers of Roanoke and Lynchburg. Mike and his wife Jeannie bring more than 30 years of experience in the business industry with 16 years of experience as franchise or small business owners. They are both Certified Main Street Business Brokers and they have already grown the Sunbelt office from one broker to five in the last 18 months and expanded into Lynchburg and SWVa.
The exciting process of purchasing a business can quickly become overwhelming. Many buyers grow frustrated and give up before the sale is complete. Our team will walk you through the stages of evaluating opportunities, meeting business owners, assisting with negotiating purchase terms and conditions, facilitating financing, expediting due diligence, and coordinating a successful closing.
Whether you are ready to retire or are preparing to move on to your next business venture, Sunbelt will ensure you receive a fair market price for the hard work you have poured into your business and do so confidentially and quickly. Our brokers will streamline the sales process and mitigate the inevitable challenges you will face.
It’s also never too early to begin thinking about your exit strategy. Surprisingly, many business owners do not know the full value of their operation. Are you familiar with every factor that should be considered when determining a list price? Our experienced professionals can help you ask for a fair price to reflect the complete worth of your tangible and non-tangible assets.
