Engineering Your Exit
We sell architectural, engineering, and land surveying businesses across the country to key employees and outside third parties. Although some businesses are actively looking to expand through acquisitions, many react when an opportunity arises. This results in a customized marketing plan for your business.
As M&A advisors, we have built our database of potential buyers by attending, exhibiting, and speaking at annual conventions of architectural, engineering, and land surveying businesses. Our articles about the process of buying a business, selling a business, and increasing business value are regularly included in newsletters of associations across the country.
Our Step-Up Legacy Program is designed for business owners that desire to sell to their key employees at fair market value and be paid at the closing. This program allows the employees to put down as little as 10% of the purchase price. We arrange bank financing for the balance.

Business owners can learn about selling their business on our Sellers page:
Prospective buyers of a business can begin educating themselves on the Buyers page:
Unlike when real estate is sold with the same standardized forms used for every transaction, each business's sale is different and customized to meet the seller and the buyer's needs. There is a box of what is reasonable and acceptable and what is not reasonable or acceptable for every transaction. We help people understand what is reasonable and unreasonable and function within the box
We help individuals and partners sell their business to their key employees or to outside third-parties. We are former commercial loan officers with a combined over 50 years of banking and business brokerage experience. As lenders, who have financed dozens of acquisitions, and typically had more of the Bank's money into the transactions than either the buyers or the sellers, we know the financial and non-financial factors that will influence success! As brokers, we understand the psychology of both buyers and sellers.
