Are you ready to sell your business?

Norm Sobel, Ontario Business Broker

If you are interested in selling your business, you need to make sure that it’s ready to be sold. When a business is not properly prepared for sale, you likely will not receive the price what you would be expecting. Your goal as the business owner is to get the best price and on the best terms possible.

This is where I come in, in order to assist you in understanding a sound and obtainable price for your business, coach you in areas that need improvement in order to increase the price you receive, market your business to prospective buyers, as well as help you negotiate the best terms prior to the final transaction.

As your Ontario sales representative, I work with you to prepare your business in order to get the highest price that is realistic for your business and industry.

My primary focus is selling businesses in Toronto and across the GTA, in cities like Hamilton, Oakville, Mississauga, North York, Oshawa and Burlington. But our firm, Keystone Realty Inc. Brokerage is licensed to  sell businesses anywhere throughout Ontario, from Ottawa to Thunder Bay.  Our target market is small businesses that are $100K – $10M in revenues.

What can we say about Norm. He was fantastic to work with, very professional. He found us numerous potential buyers and guided us through the process step by step. He always assured us we would have a successful outcome with the right buyer.

“He was always available for phone consultations and made himself available for appointments at all hours of the day or evening. He has superior negotiating skills and dealing with numerous offers helped us wade through many interviews with prospective buyers.

He held our hand and got us through to the end for a very successful sale. We just love Norm!”

Selecting the right sales representative to help you sell your business

We help you sell your business.
It is crucial to choose the right sales representative that has right skills when you want to sell your business.

Trust and confidentiality are key when choosing someone to help sell your business. You need to feel comfortable enough to have open two-way communication.

It is important that your business sales representative is able to provide consulting as well as to advise you and help you in making changes that might be necessary to increase the value of your business. This could include helping you develop an up to date and go forward business plan or even helping you better manage your cash flow.

You want to find someone who has been an entrepreneur themselves and understands what is required to run a business.

Make sure that the person you are working has worked with small business clients and has had successful business sale transactions.

Confidentiality is key when you’re selling your business.

We understand your need for privacy.

You do not want to alert your customers, employees, suppliers, and perhaps your bank that you’re selling the business. It’s not ‘smart’ business to share that you are selling your business.

We will take all necessary steps to ensure that this process is not disclosed and that your identity is protected.
