profileI bring to any business and real estate transaction over 30 years of experience in mergers, acquisitions and business brokerage, business ownership and operations, including sales and marketing, production management, financial analysis, and planning. Having purchased, operated and sold several successful businesses, I have a strong understanding of all aspects of the sale process and understand the questions, concerns, and goals of sellers, buyers, financial and legal advisors and bankers relating to a sale.

Professionalism, focus, hard work, and the ability to maintain close communication are strengths that I bring to every successful business transaction. Combining the knowledge and experience of my entrepreneurial and business brokerage background, I proficiently execute the confidential sale and acquisition of a business from start to finish. I am steadfast with my professional goal in serving my clients with their entrepreneurial endeavors and goals.
