Why Choose Rogerson Business Services?
Andrew Rogerson, the owner and operator of Rogerson business services, is no stranger to owning a business himself. Between the businesses he owned in his native Australia to those he has owned and operated in the United States, he has an intimate knowledge of what it means to run a business.
He’s sold his own businesses as well, including an International travel agency he sold for 250% of the original price after running it for three years. He’s also good at spotting businesses that are a good investment and growing them to the point where they can be sold at a profit.
Those are all great reasons to choose Rogerson Business Services when you are in need of a business broker to help you sell your business. Here are some others.
One of the most important aspects of doing business with anyone is trust, and this is especially true when you are selling your business. Your business broker will know intimate things about your business and even your personal finances, things that are necessary to aid them in selling your business.
Keeping those things confidential and knowing what is okay to share with a potential buyer and what still needs to be kept confidential until the business sale is final is key. Andrew knows these things and only operates in an ethical manner to make sure your business sale is executed within the bounds of all legal requirements but is also impeccable when it comes to business ethics as well.
Not only does Andrew have experience owning a business, but in selling one too. For the last several years, he has owned his own firm to advise and guide entrepreneurs through the complexities of buying or selling a business. Not only does he bring his own experience to the table, but had added to that the experience of buying and selling a variety of businesses for others.
Since each transaction is unique, Andrew has developed a broad skill set to fall back on that covers everything from getting your business ready to sell to finding you the right buyer at the right time. His network of connections in various industries means selling your business, no matter what it is, will benefit from his years of working as a business broker.
He’s also experienced as a business valuator and an equipment appraiser. Even if you are not sure what your business is worth, Andrew will be able to help you determine that value and set a price that the market will bear, but that will also mean the most reasonable profit for you.
Andrew also knows about financing, and what the best option for you and your buyer might be. From SBA loans to owner financing and traditional loans, he can help you and your buyer navigate the tricky world of business finance.
Certifications and Qualifications
As we all know, it takes more than experience to do something well. It takes education, and specific knowledge is often illustrated by certifications. Here are Andrew’s certifications that show he knows how to sell your business for what it is really worth:
- Certified Mergers and Acquisition Professional (CM&AP) from the Kennesaw State University and Coles College of Business, Atlanta, GA and sponsored by M&A Source, the highest designation awarded by that association
- Mergers and Acquisition Master Intermediary (M&AMI) from the M&A Source

When it comes to everything from valuing your business to knowing the tax implications of how your sale is structured, Andrew has the knowledge, expertise, and certifications to help you.
Experience and knowledge are great, but the greatest asset of any business broker is determination. Even when things get tough or you encounter snags in the selling and buying process, Andrew knows how to navigate those.
He was able to sell a tree and landscaping business and even helped the sellers and buyers navigate a government shutdown, the longest in history, which meant that no SBA loans were being approved during that time. Despite the delay in the closing of this business, both buyer and seller were extremely happy, and you can read more about that here.
