Our primary goal is to offer you excellent support and customer service throughout the process.
OUR SELLING PROCESS
We will make an initial evaluation which will always be realistic so that we can proceed without unnecessarily raising expectations. We take the opportunity at this stage to really understand you and what your motivations are for selling to help you achieve your goals.
Once you have decided to work with us we will conduct a comprehensive study of your business, the market and its future potential
Our valuation will take into account the multiple factors that will drive the eventual sale value.
We will produce a sale document that will only be passed on to potential buyers who have been vetted and have signed a non-disclosure agreement (NDA).
This will be put in place by carefully targeting the most appropriate buyers for your business.
We will meet all potential purchasers and accompany them to all site meetings.
We will coordinate and present all offers and work with you and all your advisers to help conclude the sale.
SELLING A BUSINESS
When selling a business it is important to provide a service that is bespoke to client’s requirements, presenting the business in a professional manner to a wide range of potential acquirers. In particular, all the unique features of the business need to be identified, which all help to drive up exit value where potential buyers are concerned.
With access to trade resources including companies worldwide through commercial data subscriptions, a major part of the strategy to sell your business, will be to sort through several hundred possible targets (500+) in order to achieve up to 50 potential acquirers, which will then lead to a short-list of serious buyers. This is when a competitive bidding environment can be created, which is essential to maximise value, as even out of 6 potential buyers, experience shows that some offers will be double that of others.
By using Fitzrovia to help find a suitable buyer for your business, you will be using a team with more than a century of industry experience, who have delivered exceptional results from a network of trade and private buyers, investors and links with other trusted brokers or consultancies.
Depending upon your circumstances, we offer a free and confidential appraisal meeting or discussion. Simply contact us and we will send you our Free Guide to Selling a Business

BUYING A BUSINESS
Buying a business is very often an attractive proposition, compared to building a business from scratch. There is much less risk, especially if staff, equipment, suppliers and customers are all in place, giving you the opportunity to enjoy the benefits and rewards of business ownership from day one.
Also, apart from potential problems to do with “culture”, acquisitions are usually a much quicker way to achieve growth, rather than by growing the business “organically”.
Businesses for sale through Fitzrovia tend to be profitable, well established businesses with a turnover of at least £1m from a variety of sectors associated with Estate Agent.
If you are looking to buy a business, we can help provide an independent business valuation letter or report, before you commit to making an offer. For further information on our business valuation service, please fill out this form.

VALUING A BUSINESS
Business/share valuations are not straight forward, not least because there are at least five valuation methods to choose from, one or two of which will be appropriate for your type of business.
Fitzrovia provides you with an “independent” valuation service where we can provide either a business valuation letter or full business valuation report.
Your business valuation will be prepared in complete confidence by a fully qualified, independent Valuer. The valuation can be used for many purposes such as substantiating the value of your shares, the asking price for selling a business, the offer price for purchasing a business, business planning, exit strategy or exit planning, probate, matrimonial etc etc. (NB The full valuation report can be FPR compliant if being used for Court purposes).
To enquire about a valuation, simply complete the form in this link and we will outline how your valuation letter or full report can be provided.
You will also receive a sample valuation report, and sample valuation letter, so no risk before you decide
