Seller Representation

Professional business brokers

When you want to sell your business or commercial real estate property, you want it valued properly. You want it financed properly. You want the job done without interrupting your day-to-day operations, and you want it overseen by a business brokerage professional who can ensure the transaction goes off without a hitch.

At Magnusson Balfour, that’s what we do: we sell businesses and commercial real estate, and when applicable, we sell both as a package. For more than 50 years we have been helping clients find buyers for their businesses, and we’ve been closing deals that ensure our clients get what they want.

“Thank you for all your help. Your professionalism is unmatched in my experience. I have been involved in residential and commercial transactions, none of which were handled like these properties. Your ability to move/think quickly and control the direction of the transaction is commendable. I appreciate your efforts to weed out sight seeing in the building. You acted in the best interest of the school without just compensation for the effort.” —Name withheld for confidentiality

Understanding the market

Successful marketing is the key to finding the right buyer for your business. This process begins by understanding your industry, the business market, short- and long-term trends, and the profile of an individual who would be interested in buying your business. Our experts know how to create a profile of a potential buyer, than we cater a marketing campaign at that individual.

With the prospect identified, we use our 50+ years of experience to qualify the buyer, present and tour the buildings, discuss offers, engage in negotiations, help arrange financing, and deal with all the paperwork details that arise throughout the process. We are with you all the way to closing.

We provide a host of services designed to locate an appropriate buyer for your business. These services include:

  • An in-house database of buyers and key contacts
  • Professional marketing materials representative of your business
  • Postcard and email campaigns
  • Timeless tradition of cold calling
  • Extensive Internet marketing
  • Engagement with other industry professionals
  • Lead management and follow-up systems
  • Workshop promotions
  • Newsletter promotions
  • Professional networking
  • Industry-specific marketing (e.g., publications, trade groups, directory listings)
