Who We Are

We understand the stress that you feel, and we understand what it’s like to go through this process for the first time.

At the Des Moines, Iowa, office of Morgan & Westfield, our number one goal is to make the sale of your business easier for you. We want to reduce the stress that you feel and tackle the more challenging aspects of your sale for you.

Business Brokers Who Understand Your Needs

At the Des Moines, Iowa, office of Morgan & Westfield, our business brokers have an advantage over the business brokers of other firms. Before joining Morgan & Westfield, many of our business brokers were business owners just like you. And just like you, they eventually came to a point when they wanted to sell their business. They were not initially experts in business sales, and they, too, thought of the sales process as intimidating. But going through the sales process successfully and eventually becoming professional business brokers have given our brokers the experience that gives them an advantage.

We understand what it’s like to sell the business that you have dedicated so much of yourself to the building. We also understand what it’s like to navigate the sales process for the first time. This ability to understand the sales process from your perspective allows us to more effectively understand and address your needs, allowing us to provide you with a superior level of service.

Making Your Sale Easier for You

Because our business brokers have been in your position before, we understand how challenging the sales process can be for you as a business owner. For this reason, at the Des Moines, Iowa, office of Morgan & Westfield, we place a particular emphasis on making your sale easier for you. There are two primary ways in which we accomplish this objective:

  • Services: Through utilizing the services that our business brokers provide, we are able to handle many of your sale’s more challenging tasks for you. This reduces your responsibilities and enables you to continue focusing on running your business as opposed to worrying about the details of your sale. By completing these more complex tasks for you, the amount of work that you will have to personally do to sell your business will decrease significantly.
  • Support: Unfortunately, there are some aspects of your business’s sale that our brokers cannot complete for you. To assist you with these tasks and make them easier for you, our brokers play more of a supporting role. We guide you through these tasks, answer your questions, offer advice and provide you with overall support. Our business brokers make it a point to provide this level of support throughout the entire process. We will even teach you about the sales process and provide you with advice to ensure a smooth sale. In many cases, this also includes making you aware of common seller mistakes or obstacles to business sales so that these issues can be avoided before they even arise.

Through providing constant support and an array of services that are designed to facilitate a successful sale, our business brokers make the sales process easier for you. We take the pressure off of you and simplify your responsibilities. At Morgan & Westfield, we pride ourselves on making it easier for business owners to sell their business. To learn more about how our business brokers can make it easier for you to sell your business, contact the Des Moines, Iowa, office of Morgan & Westfield today.
