Jim was very knowledgeable and professional and guided me through every step of the process. He also coordinated with all the key players which was doubly important in this case because my business and the buyer’s team were all in Hawaii. I would gladly recommend Jim and Murphy Business & Financial to anyone considering selling their business.

After exiting the corporate world, my wife and I wanted to purchase a business that we could run ourselves and take more control of our destiny. I first met Jim through one of his listings and although it was not a good fit for us, I was impressed with his upfront nature and asked him if he could help us find a business that was a better fit. After helping us review a few different alternatives, we finally found the right match and were glad to have Jim beside us through the entire process.

After running my business for a few years I was curious about the fair market value of the business. Although my intent is not to sell, knowing the value was important knowledge that was used to negotiate the buyout of a minority partner as well as use for estate planning purposes. Jim did an excellent job assessing the situation and also upon my request, referred other key business partners such as a financial advisor and business attorney that filled other needs of mine.
