The typical business has about a 20% success rate when selling. When we do Value Building work we have a 70% to 80% success rate.

Why Add Value Building to Your Brokerage?

You need an inventory of quality listings to sell, yet many owners have unrealistic expectations about what their company is worth. You may spend hours educating owners in return for the possibility of selling their business down the road. Some will hire you, but many more will change their minds and decide not to sell or will pick another broker, leaving you with nothing in return for your hours of education and shared wisdom. By leveraging The Value Builder System™ in your brokerage, you can attract, qualify and convert great businesses into listing and get paid to work your funnel of prospects along the way.

Win Quality Listings

Inviting owners to complete the Value Builder questionnaire is a great way for you to start a conversation with a new prospective client.

Win Quality Listings

Stop Wasting Time

The Value Builder questionnaire allows you to see how a business owner answers the questions proven to be important to a buyer which will allow you to pick the very best opportunities and invest extra time where owners have a realistic opportunity to sell their business. Our Adjustments Wizard tool allows you and your client to quickly calculate Seller’s Discretionary Earnings (SDE) and explains the adjustments process to your clients.

Stop Wasting Time

Reduce the Drama

Selling can be emotional for founders and when the tantrums start, the deal falls apart. That’s why business brokers use PREScore™ to ensure owners have a clear sense of why they're selling before they start the process.

Reduce the Drama

Differentiate Yourself

By training to become a Certified Value Builder™, the designation we provide business brokers trained to use The Value Builder System™, you will be differentiating yourself with the value building industry’s most prestigious credential.
