Peter Goodman started his career in business brokerage in 2003. Since that time he has sold many businesses of various types and sizes, from manufacturing to restaurants to retail stores, from service businesses to distribution companies. His typical transaction involves small businesses ranging in size from very small to over $15,000,000 in revenue. Peter is a Certified Business Intermediary through the International Business Brokers association (IBBA) and regularly participates in educational classes for business brokerage. He is also a licensed real estate broker so he can handle the sale of your real estate along with your business.

As a CBI Peter Goodman is formally trained in all aspects of the business brokerage process. Only 5% of business brokers have such a Certification. He also serves as President of the New England Business Brokers Association, a local non-profit organization that promotes education, cooperation and a high standard of ethics among the region’s professional business brokers.

Peter works with almost every type of business, such as retail, service, distribution and manufacturing companies. To begin the sales process a valuation analysis of the business is produced, which shows the true profitability of the subject company. The net income line on a business's tax return is for tax purposes only and does not reflect the true earnings power of the business. By properly analyzing a business' financial statement, the 'true' profitability of the business can be determined, which is instrumental in setting a sales offering price.

The sale of a business is always highly confidential. This is why hiring an experienced business broker is so important. Only a professional business broker has the experience and skills necessary to create a market for something that is top secret! Your transaction will be handled in a VERY discreet manner.

There are many steps in the business sale process, which begins with a meeting of the owner of the business and beginning a financial analysis. If you are interested in selling your business please contact Peter directly. His mission is to work with the business owner as a friend, advisor and confidant as he navigates through your business sale process, from listing to closing; to working with your attorneys and accountants, putting out the fires along the way and completing a sale that really works for the you.
