What Our Clients Say
"Beacon was involved in the sale of my business from valuation through closing. They showed their dedication and professionalism throughout the entire process.

I would recommend the services of April Harbottle and the entire Beacon team to anyone considering selling (or buying) a business"
"The initial time I was looking for some business valuation advice, I had I actually left the company an initial inquiry late one night as I was browsing the internet looking for valuation service. The next morning before I could even get ready for work, I received a phone call from them!! Super quick with the response times. From there, Will Fischtein was extremely knowledgeable, honest and quick with his response times when I needed a business valuation. I recommend this company to others"

“My wife and I have greatly enjoyed working with Beacon and we are pleased to say that they have successfully sold our business a lot quicker than we expected it to happen and at a price we are very happy with. This is obviously a positive reflection on all the effort Beacon put in on our behalf. As I sit here writing this note it is my 2nd last day as the owner of my company, but I could not let the moment pass without expressing on behalf of my wife and I our sincere thanks for helping us to sell our business. Not only have you collectively helped my wife and I realize our dream of retiring but also in finding new owners committed to maintaining the business and preserving our legacy. So as Ellen and I prepare to ride off into the sunset we would like to extend our Best Wishes for the future to Beacon Brokerage.”
“Beacon was hired by G Investments Inc. to list and sell the business. The brokerage was thorough in its collection of facts and details, and prepared a well laid out outline and a detailed report. They kept me informed throughout the process and marketed the listing exceptionally well. Once an offer was produced, they walked me along the process and kept me well informed and involved. For the closing Beacon found a good lawyer who represented both parties and was present for the inventory counting and prepared a detailed excel spreadsheet. The brokerage is extremely professional and very thorough in its work. I can highly recommend Beacon’s services should you be a small or medium sized business considering selling.”
“Beacon was the listing brokerage for a company that I purchased. The company is truly professional and without their experience, patience and attention to detail the deal would never have closed.”
“Beacon Brokerage was an excellent facilitator in the negotiation and purchase of my company. Total professional and great personal service. I would recommend their services highly.”
“We have posted growth every month since the acquisition so things are progressing well. We are also still looking for additional opportunities. One area that we are investigating is the business to business category. Wondering if you could help.”
“Simplicity, care and attention to detail are qualities that well describe Beacon’s style of business and service. The brokers take the time to learn not only about the clients’ businesses to arrive at highest reasonable valuation, but also to understand the clients themselves as people.”
"Beacon has developed some of most advanced business assessment tools that I have ever seen. They also have amazing mechanisms to not only locate but screen buyers."
