Why sell your business with our company?
In all our struggles and endeavors as adults, we fight to be less poor and less stupid than yesterday. Getting a degree, landing a job, getting a promotion, are no different than driving a better car, living in a bigger house, wearing better clothes, or using better vocabulary. We not only want to have the better things but we want people to acknowledge our status. The same goes for buying a business. Yes, the buyer wants a business where the due diligence makes sense; but above all else he wants a business he can show off to his friends and neighbors. Our ability to help you make a business "look good" ranks so high, almost fifteen percent of sellers decide to keep their business when they're done implementing our pre-sale suggestions.

Training and working as a Business Analyst
Working as an Option Quest Independent Business Analyst is a respectable and rewarding profession. We give everyone a chance; however, like in any other endeavor, people with initiative and drive will perform better than others. If you have these qualities, you will be very impressed at how far we went to give you the tools you need to succeed. We have carved a new space in the marketing, scalability and exit services for small business. Whether you worked as a business broker or as a marketing services agent making a good salary in the past, when you work here you will do both. By helping business people with top notch services (formerly too complex for their budgets) you start earning an income immediately while you solidify relationships and wait for a closing, or a larger payday. We don't ask you to keep another job until you see payday, as most business brokerage agencies do. We make it possible for you to offer desirable services that make you a good earner from day one. See Recommended Services for some of the exciting programs you can engage clients in.
Advertising and marketing with Option Quest
As a successful business owner, you are probably very good at what you do. We appreciate that, because we are also at the top of our game in what we do. There is a saying that if you allocate your time between five tasks, you can only give each 20% of your attention, time and focus. When it comes to success in marketing and advertising, nothing comes even close to the power and leverage our methods offer. So why not focus on your core competencies, and free your time by allowing us to engage our resources to make some really cool things happen for you? We just may be able to raise the actual value of your business in the process.
Option Quest was started by a marketing professional
With hands-on experience resolving complex direct (push campaign) and advertising (pull campaign) issues for nearly 100 Fortune 500 companies, and thousands of others, Dan Banici started in Business Brokerage by paying for training to learn the profession, then immediately applying his "front line" marketing knowledge. Right out of the training class he was chosen to run the Google AdWords spend of a major business brokerage chain, where he brought in over 360 listings in less than six months (at least two dozen over a million dollars; one listing actually sold for 20 million dollars). That was on Dan's "resume" two years before he started Option Quest.
A common seller mistake
It is important you trust your broker, you feel comfortable with what they know and what they can do for you, and then start "working with them", or being on the same side.
As long as you're worried "how much the broker worked to earn their commission", you will be shooting yourself in the foot. The broker should be able to exercise full freedom
to market everywhere. Secretively enough to protect your confidentiality (if you happen to need that), but not toil to prove "value" to you. Every friction and tension
between you and your broker (you don't want to give them an exclusive, he makes you sign a bunch of other forms to ensure he gets his commission, etc) makes you lose good,
flexible buyers. A good broker is like a good IT department. When you don't see them working, things are running better than expected. Your broker should fight tooth and nail to
ensure no paperwork is missing at the closing and all the approvals and transfers are in place. When you make yourself an additional obstacle for the broker, you will get
less for your business and it will take longer, than if you had given him full trust and freedom. It is not your place to judge "how much he worked for his commission",
because the more you make him work, and the more things you obscure, the less chances qualified buyers who meet your price expectations will appear.
