We have participated in many forms of business transactions including mergers, acquisitions, divestitures, spinouts, and roll-ups totaling well over $200M. We have won numerous awards including 2018, 2016 & 2014 Business Brokers of Florida (BBF) #1 Top Dollar Producer Award for Southwest Florida, the 2018 International Business Brokers Association (IBBA) Chairman Circle and Deal Maker Awards and our intermediaries are perennial BBF Million Dollar Sellers.
