Understanding the true value of your business is crucial before making any decisions about selling it. Your business is a cornerstone of your assets, and this knowledge is paramount.

What you believe your business is worth, or what you desire for it, doesn’t determine its value. Only the marketplace holds the key to assessing your business’s true worth and our experts will help to determine this.

Valuation is a complex task that demands experience and access to the right resources. At Great Lakes Business Advisors, we leverage our expertise and proprietary methods, alongside a wealth of data sources, to determine your business’s value in the current market. We strategize on the optimal listing price, considering factors like the owner’s cash flow and deal structure. We employ standardized valuation techniques and research industry comparables to provide you with a recommended selling price.

Selling businesses is not just our expertise; it’s our passion. Reach out to a Great Lakes Business Advisors professional today to explore the selling process or to receive a confidential and comprehensive market valuation of your business.


I tried two other brokers to sell my restaurant, and neither were successful. I decided to give Brad a chance, but I wasn’t optimistic. Not only did he sell my restaurant, he did it during a pandemic! He answered questions morning or night, 7 days a week. He was there every step of the way, instilling a sense of professionalism and sometimes humor to make the process less stressful. Definitely recommended.

We had a great experience working with Brad, very professional and always put our best interests first. Extremely knowledgeable and always made himself available for any questions or concerns that we had.Not only do I recommend them but we would certainly use them again in the future.

I had the pleasure working with Brad selling my 60 year old family restaurant this year. Kind of a big step for me, but Brad was there walking me the many phases of the sale and still keeps in touch thru out the transition. Very helpful, professional and I would recommend him and use him again in a minute!
