Selling Process

You could attempt to sell your business alone, but why? It’s time to consider your options. The stakes are high, and the working with the right professional can mean the difference between disappointment and being able to enjoy the next chapter of your life. ​At TrusT Business Brokers & Advisors, we are exclusively dedicated to the process of selling businesses. It’s what we do. The TrusT process is straight-forward and is designed to make the sale of your business as easy and fun for you as possible.  It is a process we know well!

First things first: Financial Records

​Having provable books and records increases the numbers of potential buyers.  Make sure you have clean, accurate financials that reflect your business’ profitability. This is especially important for the Due Diligence phase.  The less digging buyers have to do to review your financials, the easier and more smoothly the process will go.


We’ll review your firm’s assets and historic financial performance. We’ll research comparable transaction data, and from a buyer’s perspective, we’ll calculate the most probable selling price. Market your Business Trust will develop professional marketing materials, and create a confidential advertising strategy that will get your business in front of buyers not just in your market area but around the world. Attract Buyers Our relationship with West USA Commercial Division provides a unique advantage. At Trust Business brokers & Advisors, we have the capacity to get your business in front of thousands of buyers, and that’s exactly what we do. We carefully screen buyer inquiries along the way – evaluating their interest level, qualifications, and financial strength to complete a successful transaction. Maintain Confidentiality One of the primary benefits of a Trust Business Broker & Advisors engagement is our commitment to strict discretion. We’ll maintain this commitment throughout the selling process – requiring all interested buyers to sign the necessary confidentiality agreements prior to releasing proprietary (or identifying) information about your business. Manage the Transaction Once an offer is in place, your TrusT adviser will handle negotiations in a professional manner – allowing you to stay at arm’s length. We’ll work cooperatively with other members of your deal team – including attorneys, accountants, and financial planners. Together, we’ll manage the details of due diligence, and produce a successful closing.
