Designated Broker, Gary E. Lotzer

Mainstreet Business Buyers

You're considering owning your own business? Brave choice! If you are a financially qualified individual seeking to purchase an owner-operator business with annual sales between $1 million and $5 million, please contact our office.  You may be on your way to becoming your own boss and creating your own financial independence - not to mention taking advantage of tax write-offs and business perks. Alternatively, maybe you've considered starting your own business from scratch? While starting a new business can offer the same rewards as buying an existing business, the risks of failure are typically are much, much higher. Statistics indicate 80% of all new ("start-up") businesses fail within the first three years. Would you bet on those odds?

Why take that kind of risk with your money if you can buy an existing successful business, and greatly enhance your probability of success. By buying an existing business, you immediately benefit from an existing customer base, vendor base, experienced employees and an established name and website. You also purchase proven and cash flow and working capital to assist in financing ongoing operations. But how do you find the right business? We can help you find the best business for suiting your financial requirements and lifestyle.

Our exclusive buyer's broker services include the following areas of personal attention:

Educate you in the process of buying a business

Buying a business requires a significant investment of time and energy. You don't have to do it alone. We will educate you as we lead you step-by-step through the process of researching and buying a business...providing guidance and feedback throughout the process.

Determine the type of businesses that fits your needs, interests and lifestyle

We are experienced in matching buyers with businesses. Buying a business is not just as simple as determining the amount of income you need. The business must fit your needs, interests and lifestyle. We will sit down with you and analyze your resources, abilities, and interests to determine the businesses that will suit you best.

Find the right business

We will find the right business for you. We utilize US and worldwide databases of businesses for sale. It's necessary, we can also develop a list of "off market" (unlisted) businesses, and discretely contact the owners to inquire of their interest in selling. We can also explore other creative avenues - including local broker connections- to find a business that suits your financing parameters and ownership objectives.

Help you see the value and potential of the business

For tax purposes, tax returns of a privately-owned business are usually prepared to show as little income as possible. We are experienced in reconstructing financial statements to provide your accountant with a more economically realistic view of the business. As an additional benefit, we can draw upon our extensive business operating experience to advise you as to opportunities to improve post-purchase revenue and profitability.

Negotiate and structure a successful purchase

There are many ways to structure a deal. It's not just a discussion of price, down payment, interest rate and number of years to pay. There are many accounting and tax-related issues that have to be considered. We have the expertise and experience to help you structure and close the transaction.
