What Makes Morgan & Westfield Different

At Morgan & Westfield, we are proud of the fact that we do things differently from most other business brokerage firms. Most other business brokerage firms will ask you to sign a long-term contract and pay a commission. At the Berkeley, California, office of Morgan & Westfield, we will do neither of these things. Our business brokers do not work for a commission and we do not ask you to sign a contract.

We do not believe in operating on an exclusive basis , and we do not believe in forcing you to work with us. Instead, we choose to operate in a way in which we must continually earn your business. Our business brokers understand that if they fail to provide the level of service that you deserve, then you are free to go to another business broker. This acts as an extra motivating factor to ensure that our business brokers will always provide you with the best service possible.

In addition to being dedicated to providing you with superior service, Morgan & Westfield is also dedicated to providing great service that is based on a solid ethical foundation. This ethical foundation is based on the ethical standards that were established by the International Business Brokers Association.

Through our commitment to upholding a superior ethical standard, Morgan & Westfield has built a reputation for being the business brokers that you can trust. This reputation is something that we are extremely proud of and dedicated to maintaining. At Morgan & Westfield, we firmly believe that our dedication to continue earning your trust is the reason why we have become one of the most successful business brokerage firms in North America.

Services to Help You Sell Your Business in Berkeley, California

At the Berkeley, California, office of Morgan & Westfield, we provide services that will facilitate the sale of your business. These services are designed to complete or assist you in every step in the process of selling your business. They can be used for everything from advertising the sale of your business to closing the deal. Below is a detailed listing of our services:

  • Business Appraisals: Our business brokers will perform a formal business appraisal and provide you with a formal business valuation report. This information will be used later in the process to assist you in determining an asking price (which we will advise you on). This report can also be used to communicate the value of your business to potential buyers during negotiations.
  • Offering Documents: Our business brokers will draft an offering memorandum for you. This document will contain pertinent information about your business and will be used to communicate this information to potential buyers.
  • Confidential Marketing: At Morgan & Westfield, we use a system called confidential marketing. When our business brokers market a business sale confidentially, they advertise the sale of your business using only general information. Buyers who are interested based on the general information are then asked to contact our business brokers to receive more detailed information. This protects the confidentiality of the business while effectively marketing it to potential buyers.
  • Exposure to Potential Buyers: All of the business brokers that work with Morgan & Westfield have access to our proprietary database. This database contains a listing of thousands of potential buyers who may be interested in purchasing your business. We will also use our connection to the national Morgan & Westfield business brokerage firm to market your business to potential buyers nationally, thereby exposing your business to a vast audience of potential buyers.
  • Buyer Screening: Our business brokers will screen all potential buyers before they are presented to you. This ensures that you will never waste time negotiating with a potential buyer who has not been properly vetted.
  • Negotiation Facilitation: We will advise you on potential negotiation techniques and prepare you for negotiations. Our business brokers will also offer deal structuring advice and help to ensure that negotiations go smoothly.
  • Closing the Deal: Our business brokers will assist you throughout the closing process and make sure that all contractual obligations are properly fulfilled.
  • Paperwork: We will assist you in completing all of the paperwork associated with the sale.
  • Financing: We will work with you and connect you with other industry professionals to ensure that the sale is properly financed and funding is secured.
  • Advice: Our business brokers will be there at all times to offer advice and guidance.
  • Protection: Our business brokers will work to protect you from making costly mistakes. We will also work to protect your confidentiality and ensure that the value of your company is protected at all times.
