Bob also designed/developed single-family residences and high-end condominium complexes.

Why do you need a business broker?
Bob saves buyers and sellers time, money and stress. “Whether you’re buying or selling your business, it’s a time-consuming, stressful process. It requires a significant amount of research, trying to figure out the economics of not just buying a business, but making sure you’re well enough capitalized to keep it running. There are government and regulatory agencies to be dealing with. Finding the right building and negotiating a lease. And then come remodeling and inspections. All of this while you’re still dealing with the day-to-day responsibilities and pressures of your current job and family life. It’s very difficult to find the time to give the business of buying or selling your business the attention it deserves. The stakes are high and it’s easy to make mistakes that can cost you money and significantly delay the process.”
