Business Valuation

As a professional business broker in Tampa, St. Petersburg and Clearwater area, I do not charge for business valuation. I start with a confidential analysis of your operations, finances, market potential and trends. I then use this information to generate a business profile…

My Process For Buyers

Buy a Business in Tampa, FL

There is no need to call a Tampa, St. Petersburg or Clearwater business broker until you are within 3 – 6 months of being available to close. For buyers, the lead time is spent getting your Personal Financial Statement in order, and then taking a broad inventory of your experience.  It is a rare entrepreneur who can buy and operate a successful restaurant without significant familiarity with the food business!

My Process For Sellers

Don’t Let Complexity Hold You Back

As a seasoned Business Broker in Tampa, St. Petersburg and Clearwater area, I always begin my relationship with a seller with a confidential conversation. Then I look at numbers and the operational side of your business.  Your goals are as important as market analysis; all of which I undertake meticulously so that you can continue to run your business, day-to-day. In the same way that every business is different, so then is our path to the closing table, and the length of time that a transaction takes.  You should not be surprised if the whole process is 12 – 14 months; sometimes things move along more swiftly. Equally, there are other mitigating circumstances that can push the sale of a Tampa Bay area business, a St. Petersburg or a Clearwater area business into a year or more.

“Dave was an incredible broker with the acquisition of a new business in Pinellas county FL. He represented both my husband and I as the buyer as well as the seller which is no easy task. He was up for the challenge. He went above & beyond to make sure the needs of both parties were met. He seriously exceeded all our expectations. He is always available for you and is very conscientious in brokering the negotiations, paperwork, and next steps. My husband and I truly believe he saved our deal when we hit challenges with the seller. We would HIGHLY recommend him if you are looking to sell your business or if you’re a buyer. You won’t find a better person to help you! “

My Clients Are Like Family

There is nothing more satisfying than helping a business owner find a great buyer to carry on the growth and success of what he had built. Equally, when a solo-preneur finally breaks free of the concrete jungle to go it alone, it is inspiring. When you sell or buy a business  with me, you become part of my business family.  You automatically get my loyalty and my best professional expertise to make your deal be the best it can be. It’s what gets me out in the morning, and what I hope to be remembered for. 

To be a St Petersburg Business Broker and a Tampa Business Broker is both different and the same.

It’s all the Tampa – St. Petersburg – Clearwater Region of Tampa Bay, with cultural, business and lifestyle sublteties only a local would know.
