Ready to Sell Your Business?

What I Do

Sheila Spangler, Certified Valuation Analyst, Business Certified Appraiser, Certified Business Intermediary/Business Broker

There are many complicated steps to selling, purchasing, or valuing a company. 


Buying or selling your business is  one of the most important financial decisions you’ll make.  And it's likely you'll only do it once -

 so getting it right is extremely important.


Hi.  I’m Sheila Spangler.

As a professional business broker and business appraiser,  I guide you through the transition out of or into your privately-held company.   


Valuing and selling a business and getting the best price possible requires the right process, people, experience, and professionalism. 


I specialize in business sales, business valuation, negotiation, deal structure, and financing for privately-owned companies including family owned businesses.  


No matter what stage you and your business are in, let’s have a conversation about how to maximize your return on investment.  

If It Was Easy.....

Albert Einstein quote: "Everything should be made as simple as possible, but not simpler."

If selling (or buying) a privately-owned company was easy, you could call your local business broker and sell (or buy) a business within three days like purchasing stock in a publicly traded company.  Unfortunately, it's not that simple.  


According to BizBuySell, it takes about nine months, start to finish, to sell a privately owned company, if it can be sold.  


However, it is possible to improve the odds of selling your company for a better valuation.  Here are a few tips.  


At a minimum, you will need:

  • Up-to-date books and records,
  • Positive seller discretionary earnings,
  • A desirable/sale-able business,
  • A professional valuation, and 
  • Expert guidance.


Give me a call and let's talk about the "sale-ability" odds and your potential business valuation.
