  • How do you know you are ready to sell?
  • What is a fair price for your Business?
  • What makes your business valuable?
  • How do you find the right buyer?
  • Where do you even start?

These are some of the questions at the core of our process. The vast majority of business owners have never sold a business before…we have. The simple fact is this, most business owners that attempt to sell (on their own or with help) are not successful. Less than 30% actually transact.

The BMA 5–Phase Process

BMA’s experience driven process is designed to change that and tilt the odds back in your favor. To do so, we begin with an honest snapshot of where you and your business stand in the marketplace, how it is viewed and valued by likely buyers, and provide real world expectations for price, terms, and process. Our goal is to make sure you and BMA are completely aligned when moving forward.
