Goodman started his career in business brokerage in 2003.
Since that time he has sold over 100 businesses
of various types and sizes, from manufacturing to restaurants to
retail stores, from service businesses to distribution
companies. His typical transaction involves small businesses ranging in size from
main street to over $15 million in
revenue. Peter is a Certified Business Intermediary (CBI) through
the International Business Brokers association (IBBA) and regularly
participates in educational classes for business brokerage. He
is also a licensed real estate broker and can therefore handle the sale
of real estate along with a business.
As a CBI, Certified Instructor, Board of Governors Member and
Fellow of the International Business
Brokers Association, Peter Goodman is formally trained in all aspects of the business brokerage process. Only 5% of business brokers have such a Certification.
He also serves as Past President of the New England Business Brokers Association, a local non-profit organization that promotes education, cooperation and a high standard of ethics among the region’s professional business brokers.
Peter works with almost every type of business, such as retail, service, distribution and manufacturing companies. To begin the sales process
a valuation analysis of the business is produced, which shows the
true profitability of the subject company. The net income line on
a business's tax return is for tax purposes only and does not reflect the true earnings power of
the business. By properly analyzing a business' financial
the 'true' profitability of the business can be determined,
which is instrumental in setting a sales offering price.
The sale of a business is always highly confidential. This is why hiring an experienced business broker is so important. Only a professional business broker has the experience and skills
necessary to create a market for something that is top secret!
Your transaction will be handled in a VERY discreet manner.
There are many steps in the business sale process, which begins with a meeting of the owner of the business and
beginning a financial analysis. If you are interested in
selling your business please contact Peter directly. His mission is to work with the business owner as a friend,
advisor and confidant as
he navigates through your business sale process, from listing to closing; to working with
your attorneys and accountants, putting out the fires along the way and completing a sale that really works for the
