What to expect when working with the VRG team
In one sentence, we are Professionals You Can Trust!
Professionals because we immerse ourselves in business brokerage and business valuations. While many business brokers get their license and claim they too can sell businesses, we eat, breathe, and sleep all things related to the sale of your business. We are long-time members of the California Association of Business Brokers, the International Association of Business Brokers, and the Merger and Acquisition Source. We are Certified Business Brokers, Certified Business Intermediaries, and Merger and Acquisition Master Intermediaries, and stay current on all the latest trends relating to selling a business. While other brokers are stating that a deal cannot be done or get financing, we are actively networking with other professionals to find a way to get things done.
You can trust us to handle the sale of your business in a confidential manner. We treat each business we represent as our own. While some brokers might “throw it up on the wall and see if it sticks”, we would rather carefully guard your business’s identity until we know we have a qualified buyer. And you can trust us to give you the “straight scoop” regarding the prospect of selling your business and the likely market value of your small to mid-sized business. And we know the value because we subscribe to the best data sources for comparable sales. Plus, we have sold over 800 Southern California businesses, so we have learned a thing or two along the way.
Selling a business is tough. So while we understand some brokers might take shortcuts, that has never been our process. You see, both of our principals were business owners who sold their business through a business broker. That’s how they got into this business. So, you can count on the team at Vanguard Resource Group to go the extra mile to sell your business. That means taking hours to fully understand your financials and your business. It means writing a comprehensive confidential business review, not just a one-page advertisement, to cast your business in the best light possible. It means writing good ads for your business and getting those ads in front of the most likely buyers. It means asking the hard questions of buyers to make sure that we minimize exposure of your business to unqualified business buyers. And it means thinking several steps ahead in the process to make sure that once we are in escrow with your business, we close escrow!
We strive to have Vanguard Resource Group (VRG) be the type of company that after we have sold your business, you feel comfortable referring us to your friends.
