Business Transition


Bill brokered the sale of our company with excellence and expertise.  Bill’s personal combined knowledge of SBA loans, real estate, negotiations and taxes made me feel like I hired a team of experts all rolled into one.  Great job and many thanks!

I think everyone should have an exit strategy and know upfront the logistics necessary to implement that strategy. Bill, does a great job of introducing people to those steps and implementing them within the average time frame associated with selling various types of business.

Things are going well with the transition of ownership. I appreciate everything you did to help my brother and I sell our business. As I go off into the sunset, I have a good taste in my mouth about Gibson and Associates.  Anyone who wants to sell a business needs to go to Gibson and Associates. Thank you for everything.
