With well over a thousand businesses sold under one roof, we deliver superior results. And that's the BottomLine.

Your business was a huge financial, emotional, and physical investment: BottomLine will help you get your hard-earned value. We can value the business and determine its fair market value in today’s market conditions. We represent the businesses for sale by:

When you take your first steps of entrepreneurship, you’ll want an experienced guide.

• Guide you through the process of investigating and purchasing a business.
• Arm you for the best chance of third party approvals: landlords, franchisors, and financing.

We facilitate the Purchase Process from start to finish:
• Facilitate offer negotiation
• Expedite due diligence
• Manage escrow to completion!
• Negotiate with landlords and franchisors
• Facilitate financing with SBA, conventional, and other funding

Commercial Real Estate:

Own both the real estate and the business? BottomLine can help! Bundling the commercial property and the business for sale brings added value to the transaction and attracts the highest caliber of Buyers.


Businesses ownership has fascinated me for as long as I can remember.

In 1979, as a 19-year-old newly minted professional, I began working alongside seasoned business brokers focused solely on small business sales. I learned from the best how to recognize, evaluate, and sell good business opportunities to qualified buyers who were ready to jump in and build their own futures as entrepreneurs. I was hooked, and my entire career has been focused on businesses for sale.

If you've read this far down the webpage, you already have a great feel for the powerhouse services that BottomLine provides, so I won't bore you further. Feel free to read my personal bio on my BottomLine "About Us" page (see "Broker Links" below). If you're looking to sell your business, you'll give yourself a huge advantage by listing with a BottomLine Business Broker. Reach out today!

Fellow Agents and Brokers: We're expanding the team!

We're a professional, collaborative organization with huge advantages in the marketplace. We have well-developed in-house and marketing technology that frees motivated agents to close many more deals at higher valuations. The BottomLine team freely shares knowledge and experience, enabling each other to close more deals. I have personally mentored several highly successful Agents; paying forward what my mentors did for me continues to be my most prized personal accomplishment.

If you're the lone bizops agent at a residential or commercial shop, at a brokerage that isn't aggressively expanding and marketing, or simply looking for a better opportunity, we want to talk to you. Reach out today - we can help you achieve your goals!
