Sell your business in Austin or Central Texas with Capitol Business Advisors

Success In Selling

Frequently Asked Questions

Are you concerned that your transaction could get buried in your advisor’s dozens of other competing projects?

Our happiest clients love the fact that we only work with a limited number of clients at a time to ensure the highest quality service and the full attention and commitment of our senior staff. This focus means we must be extremely confident we can sell your business at or above your expectations or we will not accept the engagement.

Are you unsure if you’ll be able to get the best possible price by selling on your own?

Our goal is to drive the highest value the market has to offer while maintaining momentum. We orchestrate a unique, well structured, competitive environment that results in more timely and higher offers. As a result, our clients enjoy an efficiently run transaction, and close on the best possible terms.

Are you worried about not finding the right buyer for your business?

CBA has affiliates in all 50 states and registered buyers worldwide. Our extensive relationships provide a solid base for initiating transactions and enable us to deliver the right buyers to our clients.

Are you nervous about what could happen if employees, customers, suppliers or competitors find out about your planned sale?

Confidentiality is critical to protecting a business owner’s objectives. Our discrete sale process recognizes the need for confidentiality relative to employees, customers, suppliers, competitors and other parties.

Are you considering the potential impacts of incorrectly timing the sale of your business?

We are fierce advocates of our client’s interests and don’t waste their time. Occasionally, we find out upfront that a seller’s goal does not match results the current market can provide. If the timing is not right, our advisors can recommend alternative value building strategies to achieve a better future transaction.
