Business Valuation

Opinion of Value 

Most business owners know the value of their homes, cars, and personal finances. Yet, few know the true value of their business. Our intermediaries use tools and expertise to help determine the maximum market value for your business during its sale.

Confidentiality

Why is confidentiality important in the sale of a business?

 Confidentiality is a must when a business owner decides to sell his Huntsville business.  We believe that it is imperative for  everyone (employees, customers, vendors and lendors) to remain unaware of the sale until it is final and complete. This protects the value of the business for both the seller and any potential buyers.
