Who We Are

Morgan & Westfield, Business Brokers of Lakewood, Colorado. At the Lakewood, Colorado, office of Morgan & Westfield, our business brokers work with local business owners as they navigate the process of selling their business.

Selling your business on your own is extremely difficult. There are technical tasks to be fulfilled, important decisions to be made, and paperwork to completed — and all of these must be done while your business is still operating to its fullest potential.

The process of selling your business can be made much easier when you work with our business brokers. We will help you with all of the technical aspects of the sale, allowing you to focus on the critical task of continuously running your business in preparation for the sale.

By working with our team of professional business brokers, you are increasing the chances of finding a qualified buyer and expediting the sale. Under the guidance of our business brokers, mistakes that are commonly made during private business sales can also be avoided.

At the Lakewood, Colorado, office of Morgan & Westfield, our business brokers will make the sales process easier for you while simultaneously increasing the likelihood of a successful sale.

What Every Seller Should Know

At Morgan & Westfield, our business brokers provide services to address the technical aspects of your sale and continuous guidance throughout the sales process. However, we also make an effort to do more than just provide services and guidance; we also educate you as a seller. Our business brokers believe that by helping you understand the sales process, everything will become easier and less stressful for you.

When providing insight into the inner workings of the sales process, we focus on teaching you about what we believe every business seller should know, including:

  • Selling Your Business Discreetly Is Essential: The importance of maintaining confidentiality cannot be overstated. If news of your sale leaks and your competitors, suppliers or customers learn about the sale, the value of your company could diminish. Suppliers could end their contracts or refuse to enter into new contracts. Customers could go elsewhere. And competitors could seize the opportunity to gain market share while your company is vulnerable. All of these things will decrease your company’s value.
  • Be Upfront with Buyers: Buyers know that every company has its shortfalls. If you are honest about these from the beginning, a buyer is far more likely to be understanding. If you try to hide them and the buyer discovers them (and the buyer will), then he or she will react more harshly.
  • The Success of the Sale Depends on the Buyer: Most business sales are financed in some way, often by the seller. For a buyer to repay this financing, he or she will need the business to be successful. For this reason, working with buyers who are capable of running your business is vital. To ensure the buyer’s success, providing the necessary information and training when the buyer purchases your company is also important. Failure to do these things may not seem like a big deal right now, but it can prove costly to both the buyer and the seller in the long run.
  • Your Company’s Value Is Market Dependent: A business valuation (even one done by our business brokers) is only an estimate. Just because your company is appraised at a certain value does not mean that it is what the market will provide. Ultimately, your company’s value is determined by how much a capable buyer is willing to spend. For this reason, you must maintain a level of flexibility in terms of your company’s value.
  • Negotiations Are Never Personal: You must remember that a business negotiation is just like any other negotiation — both sides are working for the best possible deal. You should know this beforehand and use this knowledge to keep everything in perspective. Never take a low offer personally. Instead, you should simply view any offer (even an extremely low offer) as an invitation to continue negotiating. Remember, only the deal that is mutually agreed to matters — everything else is just a part of the process.
  • There Are Tax Implications to Selling Your Business: You should seek professional tax advice (our business brokers can connect you to a tax professional) so that you are aware of your tax obligations in relation to the sale.
  • Work with Professional Business Brokers: Businesses sold by their owners directly are almost always undervalued. These sales are often also structured incorrectly, making successful repayment unlikely. A business broker can prevent these issues, help you get a better price, expedite the process, and make everything easier for you.
