WHAT WE DO

Brentwood Growth is more than a listing broker. We advise our clients to obtain the best possible outcome when selling their business, buying a business, or enhancing the value of their business or a future sale.

Our expert team of business brokers provides merger and acquisition services to lower mid-market companies. We are highly experienced in factoring in add-backs when selling or buying a business as we thoroughly understand the impact of add-backs on business valuations.

Owners Wanting
To Sell Their Business

Are you ready to sell your business today? We take the mystery and stress out of the business valuation and sales process. Brentwood Growth will begin by completing a valuation of what the business is worth and how it would appeal to various buyer groups. From there we prepare the marketing documents, find and vet qualified buyers, assist through due diligence and negotiate to obtain the maximum selling price and best terms. We are a genuine partner, not just a listing broker.
