Who We Are

Cedar Rapids, Iowa, Office of Morgan & Westfield. Building a successful business can be challenging. You must be dedicated, put in long hours, invest money and work hard. But there will come a time when you will be ready to sell the business that you have worked so hard to build and enjoy the fruits of your labor. Just as building a business is challenging, so too is selling a business. This time is full of uncertainty about what the future holds, and it can be difficult to accept the fact that it is time to move on from the activity that you have devoted yourself to for so long. Making this already stressful time even harder is the fact that you have probably never gone through the process of selling a business. You might not know what to expect or what steps to take to sell your business. This is where our team of professional business brokers at the Cedar Rapids, Iowa, office of Morgan & Westfield come in.

Facilitating Your Business Sale

When you enlist the assistance of our business brokers to help you sell your business, we will do everything we can to make the process as easy as possible for you. We will answer your questions, provide guidance, connect you with the help that you need (even if it means referring you to another industry professional), help you overcome any obstacles that you may face, and complete or assist you in completing every step in the process of selling your business. Our number one goal is to make sure that your business is sold successfully and that the process goes as smoothly as possible. This goal is accomplished by providing you with a variety of services that are designed to facilitate the successful sale of any business. Our services include:

  • Exit Planning Services: We will help you plan an exit strategy for when you decide to move on from your business. This process can begin at any time. In fact, our business brokers recommend beginning this process long before you are ready to leave your business; this way you will be fully prepared for the sale.
  • Business Appraisals: At Morgan & Westfield, we provide business valuation services. This will help you to formally determine the value of your company and provide information that will be useful throughout the process of selling your business.
  • Customized Marketing Strategy: Our business brokers will create and implement a customized marketing campaign for your business. We design these campaigns with confidentiality in mind and use discreet marketing techniques. So your custom marketing campaign will both advertise your business’s sale and simultaneously protect your business’s privacy.
  • Buyer Screening: We will screen all prospective buyers to ensure that you are only dealing with buyers that are legitimately interested in and capable of purchasing your business.
  • Due Diligence: We will assist you in researching your potential buyers. We will also assist you with providing the necessary information to your buyers so that they can research your company.
  • Negotiations: Our business brokers will prepare you for negotiations, provide advice, assist you with structuring deals, recommend negotiation techniques and ensure that the process goes as smoothly as possible.
  • Securing Funding: Once a deal is reached, we will assist you in making sure that financing for the sale is secured and the sale is properly funded.
  • Closing: We will help you prepare and complete all of the paperwork associated with the sale. We will also help you to ensure that all contingencies and contractual obligations have been met.
  • Support: Our business brokers will be there at all times to answer your questions and to help you with any challenges that may arise. We will even provide you with unsolicited advice to prevent common errors before they occur.
