Chris Gutierrez is different from the average Business Broker in many ways, mainly from his perspective as both a business buyer and a seller. He has purchased, raised capital for, and sold a number of his own businesses. He has lived this process and has walked in the business owner’s shoes, so he can see things from the owner’s and the buyer’s perspective. His promise to his clients is that he will give you his honest advice, whether it is best to sell, hold, delay, or close shop. It is this honesty and integrity that keeps his clients returning over and over.
Please contact Chris via phone, email, or the website form for a confidential consultation about selling or buying a business. He specializes in deals sized between 500,000 and 10,000,000, generally businesses that are larger than main street but smaller than those handled by investment banks. Our team includes licensed Real Estate brokers that can handle the sale of commercial property as well. If your company doesn’t fit these criteria, Chris may be able to still offer advice or provide the name of another Business Broker that would better suit your business size. He has a great network of other brokers, lenders, CPA’s, and attorneys that are available to assist all types of clients. Chris can be reached via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
