Brentwood Growth welcomes referrals from CPAs, attorneys, financial planners, and other business owners. We offer generous referral fees upon the successful closing of a transaction for making the introduction.

Many of the business owners we work with need some sort of financial or legal assistance to sell their businesses, and we certainly prefer referring them to someone we know and trust as opposed to them trying to find the same help on their own.

Please contact us for more details on our referral fee program.
