Business Broker Services

As a business broker, Entrust is here to help you sell your business to the best possible buyer for the best possible price.  We pride ourselves on the fact that we go well beyond simply listing your business.  We actively seek out buyers for you through our various channels. We vet potential buyers on your behalf and facilitate the exchange of information between you and the potential buyer in order to find a great fit for both.

Entrust brings unmatched expertise and professional representation to sellers of businesses in the Triangle, the Triad,  Eastern and Central North Carolina.  Entrust also works extremely hard to bring you top dollar for your business. If you have a business elsewhere in North Carolina, we may be able to help you, either directly or through an affiliate.

Business Valuation

A business valuation is a great place to start.  It’s our goal to provide you with the most accurate valuation range possible through a number of methods. No one method of valuation is perfect on its own, so we rely on multiple methods including comparable sales, our experience and knowledge of the local economy plus the local business market.  We also rely on your expertise of your business and industry to add to the equation.

Real Estate

Entrust Associates is affiliated with KW Commercial, part of the KELLER WILLIAMS REALTY FIRM IN RALEIGH. This relationship benefits our clients in several ways.

At times, a businesses will come with real estate. While we can value the business portion of the transaction, we prefer to leave the valuation of commercial property to the professionals – the expert agents at KW Commercial. Together, with KW Commercial, Entrust can provide both the seller and the buyer with the most accurate assessment of the business and real estate.

Another benefit of the KW Commercial/Entrust relationship is that our brokers are able to market businesses to a much wider scope of buyers. For example, a business listing that includes a real estate component can be marketed by Entrust in three ways:

  • through Entrust’s normal channels as a business with real estate
  • through KW Commercial’s channels as real estate with a business
  • as a raw real estate development option
