Business Brokers specialize in facilitating the sale or purchase of a business.

Buying or selling a business can be complicated. Business brokers ensure that the transaction is smooth and successful for all parties involved.

We work with sellers to help them get the business ready to sell. We analyze the market and the business to determine a reasonable asking price. We then create a marketing plan and execute it. We work with the principals and other professionals to negotiate and structure an acceptable deal.

We work with buyers to help them find a business that is a good fit. This greatly increases the chances of success and, more importantly, enjoyment. We educate the buyer about the current market and provide advice during the due diligence process.

Roger Murphy, the late founder of Murphy Business & Financial Corporation, discusses the advantages of using a Business Broker.

Why Should I Use a Murphy Broker?

Not everyone can be a Murphy business broker. The standards to become a member of the Murphy team are high. All brokers must be former business owners or have held senior executive positions. In addition, most are highly credentialed professionals holding certifications in business appraisal, machinery & equipment appraisal, consulting and business analysis, mergers & acquisitions and/or exit planning.
Business Brokers

These experiences and credentials give brokers an educated perspective on the value drivers within a business and how to maximize that value at the time of sale. It also allows them to uncover hidden value or opportunity areas that a buyer may be able to capitalize on. Murphy provides the highest level of training and support in the industry. With over 150 offices throughout North America, we have brokers that have been involved in virtually every business imaginable and they are eager to share their expertise.

Make sure you ask the right questions when considering other business brokers.

How Will You Market My Business?

We’ll put together a professional presentation on the business that will include the company history, financial statements, pictures and anything else that is pertinent to your particular business. This presentation will only be released to potential buyers once they’ve signed a Confidentiality Agreement.

We will then go to work advertising your business and utilizing our vast network of brokers across the United States to achieve maximum exposure. We talk with every inquiry to make sure that they understand all of the strengths of your business.

How Many Websites Will You Advertise My Business On?

Murphy has relationships with several different websites that advertise businesses for sale.

I recently purchased a company listed by Luis at Murphy Business Sales Tampa, and I must say, it was a seamless and satisfying experience from start to finish. While I prefer not to disclose the company's name, I feel compelled to share my positive experience dealing with Luis. Luis was an absolute pleasure to work with – responsive, professional, and highly knowledgeable. In my decade-long journey dealing with various business brokers, I've encountered my fair share of frustrations and disappointments. However, working with Luis was a refreshing change. He shattered all negative stereotypes associated with business brokers. One of the key highlights of my interaction with Luis was his precision in financial recasting. Unlike many other brokers, the financials presented were not only clear but also accurate. The business was priced competitively, reflecting its true value in the market. This was a stark contrast to the inflated prices often seen in listings by other brokers. Moreover, Luis played a pivotal role in navigating the complexities of the transaction, ultimately steering it towards a successful closing. His expertise and guidance were indispensable throughout the process. I genuinely believe that without Luis's involvement, reaching the closing table would have been far more challenging, if not impossible. In conclusion, I wholeheartedly recommend Luis and Murphy Business Sales Tampa to anyone seeking to buy or sell a business. Luis's professionalism, integrity, and commitment to client satisfaction set him apart in the industry. If you're looking for a smooth and rewarding business transaction, look no further than Murphy Business Sales Tampa, and specifically, Luis. Thank you once again for your exceptional service!

Selling your business is not a do-it-yourself project which you'll find out as soon as you contract with Luis. He is a complete professional and knows things you haven't even thought of which protect your interests. He's worth every penny.

I just bought a business and worked with Luis Zavala, who was representing the seller. Luis was awesome – always quick to respond and super helpful in guiding me through the whole process. He knows his stuff and made everything run smoothly. I had such a good experience that I’m definitely planning to team up with Luis again for my next acquisition. Highly recommend him if you’re looking for a reliable and savvy broker.

Luis guided us through a most challenging year during the sale of our business with professionalism and personal attention. I interviewed several brokers to handle the sale of our business but no one impressed me more than Luis when it came to understanding the numbers. High marks from a happy seller. Thanks again Luis for all your efforts.

Luis was the broker on for the seller on a business I purchased recently. Even though he represented the seller, he went above and beyond to help walk me through the process of buying a business and make sure had all my ducks in a row. He offered input on items to help make the transition to a new business seamless and less overwhelming that it would have been had he not taken the time to offer his expertise. I am grateful that he was the broker on this deal and I would use him in the future for any other business transactions! Thanks for everything, Luis!
