About Us

Let’s discuss for a minute the services we provide in helping you to discover your dream franchise.

1. I am a member of both the Franchise Brokers Association and the International Business Brokers Association. Part of my membership is a qualification process and it also includes mandatory classes in order to keep my membership and designations current.

2. I am a licensed Real Estate Broker. Many Franchise Brokers have never sold a business or negotiated a lease much less valued a business. I have done all of these things and have been doing this type of work for 10 plus years.

3. I have a systematic approach to finding the right match with your needs and desires. It involves a thorough business assessment and a discussion on how to implement your profile into the right franchise. I also study the market and point out trends that will be important to your success.

4. With years of business experience, both as an owner and as a Business Broker, I can provide insight and advise from a professional perspective, which does not just rely on marketing and sales brochures.

5. I provide an understanding about the prospective company’s Franchise Disclosure Document (FDD). Many sales people have no idea how to read these documents or how to interpret the information they contain.

6. I provide my clients with an hour of complimentary professional consultation from an attorney that specializes in franchises as well as a complimentary consultation from an accountant familiar with franchisors and their Profit and Loss Statements (P&L).

7. All of these services are offered at no cost the prospect that engages me to represent them and agrees to follow my process in their quest for the right franchise purchase. My fees are paid through the Marketing Fund from the Franchisors. There are never any added costs to the prospect.
