The decision to sell a business is never easy, but deciding to sell is only the first step in the business transition process. When you’re ready to retire or switch career paths, knowing where to turn can be a challenge – unless you know where to look. Your business is built on the relationships you have with your clients, and on your good name. Successfully transitioning means knowing how to place a value on your practice, selling it for a fair rate, and ensuring ongoing superior care for your clients.
Our team consists of four wealth advisors and one office manager, and together we foster a collaborative environment to capitalize on the strengths of every member.

PARTNERS IN TRANSITION
Prioritizing the Client
Your business is valuable. It represents time, dedication, and the cultivation of client relationships. When selling your practice, it’s more than just a dollar value – it’s knowing that your clients will continue receiving exceptional service and a team that’s determined to earn their trust.

Your clients want to know they’ll be happy with the transition. Our reputation, customer service, and high retention rate will help them feel confident and comfortable.
The Checklist for a Successful Transition
The first step in selling your practice is determining the value of your financial advisory firm. Placing a value on relationships and service can be difficult. If you need help determining the value of your practice, we can help you obtain an estimate from a third party.
Firms are evaluated for compliance and compared for compatibility before committing to a relationship. Prior to acquisition it is necessary to explore financial history, licensing, and a few more details. We also want to ensure your clients continue to get the same great service they are used to.
Once we have determined our business style and philosophy is a match for yours and your client base, your clients will begin the integration process. We will communicate the change to your clients and schedule introductory meetings with them, to ensure a seamless transition.
