If you have ever experienced the emotions and complications of buying or selling a home, multiply that 10 fold, and that is what it can be like with a business. The business that I recently bought with the wonderful help from Andrew Rogerson is a pure delight to own, but the transition from buyer to owner was more onerous than I could have ever imagined.

If you have ever experienced the emotions and complications of buying or selling a home, multiply that 10 fold, and that is what it can be like with a business. The business that I recently bought with the wonderful help from Andrew Rogerson is a pure delight to own, but the transition from buyer to owner was more onerous than I could have ever imagined. Andrew successfully brought together two parties that each thought they were just too far apart to come together. It did not seem to matter which obstacle was in the way, Andrew navigated us all through it. He seemed to be available 24/7 via emails, phone calls, and personal meetings, much more than I would have ever expected from a broker, or any business partner for that matter. I received help from Andrew with the business dealings, the proposals, licensing, financing, escrow and all the way to the finish line. And, just when we were wrapping up the presents, and getting ready to put the bow on top, December 22nd happened. No, not the Christmas holiday season, the longest government shut-down in history, and thus the financing. With both parties interests in mind, Andrew guided us thru the long wait, keeping in close contact, and seeing everything thru to the very end, and then some.

Whether you are looking to buy, or sell, a business, I do not believe there is anyone more dedicated to meeting your needs than Andrew Rogerson, the Sir Galahad of business brokers. I absolutely guarantee that if Andrew was not the broker on this deal it would not have sold.

Thank you so much for your hard work and dedication.

Thanks a lot for you help in this process, I know I came out of the blue with my requests to have you help valuate the equipment & furniture here, but you helped a ton. I know there were some oddities and specific details to be dealt with as well as an under-prepared client asking you lots of probing questions – so thanks for no complaints about that.

Andrew,

Thanks a lot for you help in this process, I know I came out of the blue with my requests to have you help valuate the equipment & furniture here, but you helped a ton. I know there were some oddities and specific details to be dealt with as well as an under-prepared client asking you lots of probing questions – so thanks for no complaints about that. I have already put the documents to use and have only had positive reports back thus far. The appraisal documents being ‘set-up’ the way you have them comes off very sharp & professional.

I appreciate the help & quick turn around you provide.

We sincerely appreciate Andrew’s help and support throughout the process of selling our business. His knowledge and intuition when dealing with the various buyers was invaluable. While we did not have a large, complicated transaction, Andrew still made us feel important, always communicating and making sure we were as comfortable as possible with the process. We highly recommend Andrew to anyone in need of a business broker. We enjoyed working with him and are glad he came highly recommended to us!

Andrew often says “do things from a position of strength.” My wife and I came to Andrew because we weren’t sure a franchise we were about to buy was a good fit for us. After filling out a questionnaire, we met Andrew at a local Starbucks. By the time our first meeting ended, we knew not only that the opportunity wasn’t for us, but we knew why!

Andrew often says “do things from a position of strength.” My wife and I came to Andrew because we weren’t sure a franchise we were about to buy was a good fit for us. After filling out a questionnaire, we met Andrew at a local Starbucks. By the time our first meeting ended, we knew not only that the opportunity wasn’t for us, but we knew why!

Over the next few months, Andrew methodically helped us explore franchise opportunities that would leverage our strengths. Our background is in I.T. so it seemed at first that a cloud services franchise would be an ideal fit. At every step, Andrew made himself available through regular phone calls and emails. Not only that, but he kept in regular contact with the franchisor. Andrew’s interventions helped smooth introductions and clarify facts. This helped him to ask extremely pertinent, and sometimes tough, questions which made us better understand the strengths, weaknesses, threats, and opportunities behind the franchise.

The obvious fit isn’t necessarily the best fit as we learned. Andrew spent the time so together we would fully explore, understand, and learn from this experience. Not satisfied with partial understanding, Andrew placed calls to the franchisor so he would understand their position.

We continued to explore franchise opportunities and ultimately attended three Discovery Day events with different franchisors. We looked into a business services franchise and a document destruction franchise. Each played to specific strengths. But for various reasons, each opportunity proved not to be a good fit. In one case, it was our lack of sales and marketing experience. In another case, it was the projected time to break-even.

After these disappointments, Andrew asked us whether we wanted to take a break or re-double our efforts. We’d put a lot of time and effort into our search and had built a momentum. More importantly, with Andrew’s invaluable assistance, we decided to look for opportunities where we would measure and manage staff, rather than market and sell.

When Andrew suggested a martial arts franchise aimed at helping children, we were curious but surprised. Neither of us has experience in martial arts (and we don’t have kids). As a scalable, semi-absentee business, we could open several units and hire a manager for each. This would enable us to continue our I.T. work, build a successful business, and help local communities to boot!

Thanks Andrew for seeing the potential in us and helping aim us in a new and exciting direction.

I’m fairly familiar with the nuances of selling a business, but your book is at the head of the herd because it’s not only informative, but it walks a prospective seller thru the actual steps from formulating the decision to sell, researching prospective buyers, due diligence to closing.

In the last few months I have read or scanned a number of books on selling a business and have to say yours was by far the best.

Andrew, I wanted to say ‘thank you’ for the business coaching and advice you have given me.

When I first crossed paths with you, I was extremely confused and full of anxiety about some concerns with my business. After several weekly sessions, you were able to help pull back my ‘layers’ and drill down to the core of my issues, the help me plot a course out of my own personal darkness. Before I knew it, the key problem was out in the open, addressed, solved, and now behind me.

I certainly appreciate your direct, albeit gentle, manner of discussing business; you certainly have a knack for listening and swiftly offering up reasonable, logical solutions. I look forward to working with you in the future.

Even though we encountered difficult situations along the way, you always made it as smooth as possible. I always felt like I was working with a friend who had my best interests in mind rather than someone trying to make a commission from me.

Andrew, I wanted to send you a short note to say thanks for all your help and support over the last year while my business was for sale.

Even though we encountered difficult situations along the way, you always made it as smooth as possible. I always felt like I was working with a friend who had my best interests in mind rather than someone trying to make a commission from me.

For anyone trying to buy or sell a business , I would definitely say you give five star effort and service.

Thanks again.

While considering purchasing a business, I met Andrew Rogerson. He provided me with two excellent books he had written about purchasing businesses and asked questions that helped me choose the business that was right for me.

He could see strengths in me that I couldn’t see in myself and he guided me down the perfect path.He encouraged me to develop a business plan and spent many hours assisting me with it. This became the backbone for me. When I was nervous about moving forward, he reminded me to look back at my business plan. If it is well constructed with realistic projections, it can be trusted and leaned upon for guidance.

All along the way, Andrew shared with me that to be in business for one’s self, one must be flexible and adapt to situations as they come up. I had to adapt when I was not able to get the loan to purchase the business. I knew this would mean that Andrew would not get his commission. Even though he had put a lot of hard work into me and even though this may have been a financial disappointment for him, Andrew was gracious and supportive.

I would recommend Andrew to anyone interested in purchasing or selling a business for the following reasons:

  1. He puts you first, not his commission.
  2. He will help you develop as a business person.
  3. He listens well and asks questions that help you grow.
  4. He believes in making a solid business plan to guide your actions.
  5. He lets you drive. He just holds your hand along the way.
