E2 - Evaluating Business Ownership  

Would you like to be in control of the price and negotiations when it is time to exit your business?  More importantly, what if you are not in control and looking at a 20-30% price discount for the business you invested a lifetime of hard work in? Through our exclusive techniques and methodology and with us acting as your un-compromised Advocate, we can insure your exit from business ownership is handled efficiently and safely with maximum post-tax dollars in your pocket. Prospects for your business have many investment opportunities for their money. Wouldn't you like to prove to them that your business is an excellent purchase for their investment dollars? We accomplish this with the certified, third-party appraisal. This makes your business irresistibly attractive to an honest prospect. If you want more for your business, we have to start with an certified, third-party appraisal from an appraiser respected by banks and industry. A certified appraisal also allows us to arrange pre-financing for the "right" buyer from several reputable lending sources.  Having pre-financing in place also allows us to justify the value to potential purchasers.
