Advanced Business Advisors – West Michigan’s Business Brokers
Our vision: To make a positive impact in the communities we serve, defining & creating legacies one business at a time.
Mission: Confidentially serve Michigan’s entrepreneurs and business owners helping them complete the process of buying or selling their business.
Following these guiding principles allow us to:
Our philosophy is to make the selling and/or purchase of a small to medium sized business comfortable and worry free while maintaining the highest level of integrity and service. The best interests of our clients will always come first as we are dedicated to the development of long-term client relationships!
Selling a business: We understand the investment you have made to build your business. When the time comes to sell it there are many decisions to make. We strive to continually explore new ideas and technology, to provide accurate and up-to-date information, skilled analysis and sound advice, while maintaining the highest levels of integrity and the most professional, loyal and dedicated service in the industry.
Our team-approach and philosophy ensures client’s needs are a key component when creating the strategy to sell your business and are important to each and every member of our organization. We work with you as part of your team of trusted advisors (CPA, Attorney, Banker, Financial Planner and Advanced Business Advisors) all doing our part to make this transition comfortable and worry free. Confidentiality is crucial as we help you navigate through this complex process so there is no disruption to your current business.
Buying an Existing Business: For those who want to become entrepreneurs with a lower risk and more predictable return on investment, or perhaps you are looking to grow through acquisition, buying into an existing business may be a good option. Because the business is already established, a new owner can come right in and start operating, without having to go through several months of setup. In addition, banks tend to view existing businesses more favorably because they already have a proven track record; this makes it much easier to obtain the financing to get started.
The biggest disadvantage to existing businesses is the price; all the hard work of setting up, proving the concept, and guiding the business to profitability comes at a cost. For those interested in purchasing an existing business, the best place to start is to speak with a business broker. An experienced business intermediary can examine your specific circumstances and help determine if buying is the right option for you; and if so, which business model best suits your passion, skills and budget.
