Choosing your broker
When choosing a broker, ask about the broker’s fees upfront and find out what you will get for your money. A broker may collect some seed money to cover the cost of an in-depth analysis but collecting a big check upon signing with the firm is not standard. Ask around several firms to get an idea of the standard signing rate.
Some brokers will try and build your hopes up by assuring you that your business is worth more than you could of imagined. The broker will be enthusiastic and full of promises. Some brokers may draw you in to hand over a check so they can begin working immediately. Unfortunately, some business owners have been burned when the “broker” disappears.
An organized, well-prepared broker will have a packet of materials to show you when you first get together. The packet should contain samples from past clients to help illustrate the kind of materials the broker can produce. If a broker shows up without visual aids make sure to exercise caution. Also, check online to try and see if the firm has a website. A firm with a website is one who has an online presence. A firm without a website may be lagging behind in terms of marketing, and if the firm does have a website look over it carefully for insight into its business philosophy and past performance.
Speaking with various brokers gives you the opportunity to gain valuable knowledge. Your broker should be able to impart this information clearly and without unnecessary jargon. When you ask about aspects of the process such as company valuation, the answers should be knowledgeable and specific. By speaking with several brokers, you will get a basis for comparing the acumen of each. Be wary of those who speak in vague terms or seem to be lacking in expertise. You need a sharp and articulate rep to get best results.
