Our Services – We provide a comprehensive, personal, and professional service to our clients, from start to finish, selling your business confidentially, at the highest price, as quickly and efficiently as possible. These services include: Marketing: We do a comprehensive market evaluation of your business using various metrics including but not limited to your past, current and future projected financial position, your business sector, your client mix, your operations profile and your asset mix. Using a combination of these factors we produce a fair market value evaluation using proprietary analysis tools and industry proven and accepted practices. Interviewing: Using the evaluation data, we develop a comprehensive marketing plan to attract potential buyers from our network of buyer investors as well as a global system to solicit new buyers. Once a potential buyer is identified, they are screened for financial capability and industry experience through a series of interviews. If the potential buyer fulfils the requirements and they are approved by the seller, they execute a series of documents protecting the confidentiality of the seller’s strategic business information. Negotiating: A qualified and approved buyer is then introduced to the seller to begin negotiations. All negotiations are managed with First Choice’s comprehensive documentation and agreements. The agent facilitates all phases of the negotiations until an agreement is reached. Coordination and Close: The agreement is clearly and concisely documented and additional paperwork is developed to facilitate and manage a successful transaction. First Choice facilitates all minute details of the deal to assure a successful and smooth transition.
