Business Intermediary & Broker

I guide business owners who are ready to transition out or into privately-held companies including family-owned businesses.  Valuing and selling a business and getting the best price possible requires the right process, people, and professionalism. There are many complicated steps.  It is one of the most important financial decisions you’ll make. Let’s work together and do it right to maximize your ROI.

I’m educated in business brokerage and business valuation methodology and  obtained the Certified Business Intermediary designation in 2006 from the International Business Brokers Association.  Additionally, I’m a licensed Idaho real estate broker and completed the core course work for the commercial real estate designation called Certified Commercial Investment Member.

Also, as a 20-plus year commercial lender, I know how bankers think and what they need to successfully finance your business or commercial real estate acquisition transaction.  I graduated from the masters-level program, Pacific Coast Banking School, at the University of Washington and hold a Bachelor of Arts degree in business and communications from Boise State University.

I am an Associate Broker with Murphy Business & Financial of Southwest Idaho, LLC.   As a locally owned affiliate of Murphy Business & Financial Corporation, we provide a full-range of business advisory services centered around optimizing business transitions.  We serve private and closely-held companies in all industries in the southwest Idaho and surrounding Treasure Valley communities.
