Buying or selling a business is complicated. It’s easy to get bogged down in details, confounded by alternatives and stagnated by emotion. Golden Gate Business Advisors, is dedicated to changing the odds in our client’s favor by providing intelligent, informed and tough representation in the complex world of buying and selling a business.

We believe that just as an individual’s values shape the course of his or her life, so do the core values of an organization determine its destiny. At Golden Gate Business Advisors we are committed to upholding the following core values in everything we do:

  • Honesty & Integrity. Through the sale or acquisition of a business, our clients are making life changing business decisions. Trust is fundamental in the transaction process, and the highest standards of honesty and integrity are the foundation upon which this trust is built. Our firm stands accountable to that standard.
  • Extraordinary Service. Going that extra step, time and time again. The sale of a business is a complex and demanding undertaking. As a client you will receive honest answers to hard questions – our commitment to you is exceptional personal service throughout the selling and buying process.
  • Exceptional Value. Our goal is to provide value that significantly exceeds that offered by any of our competitors.

The trend toward independently owned and operated businesses is skyrocketing. Small business is growing as the baby boomers come of age, corporations continue downsizing and franchising continues to grow. In fact, a recent study by the Alliance of Merger and Acquisition Advisors found that many advisers believe that seven out of ten midsized businesses will transfer ownership in the next decade, and that at least 90% are now ill-prepared for that transition. Whether you’re selling or buying a business, your success starts with Golden Gate Business Advisors .
