MATTHEWS, NC – Joe Vagnone has announced the successful sale of a locally owned Hallmark Gold Crown Store franchise.

This was a five-owner, estate trust account, partnership buyout. Joe Vagnone assisted with the complex negotiations involved.

“Intercompany buyouts are especially very challenging and require very experienced, sensitive negotiation skills.” – Joe Vagnone

ENLIGN marketed the opportunity with the top online business listing services, including ENLIGN’s website, www.enlign.com before the buyout agreement was reached.

ENLIGN, representing the seller, prepared a buyer’s information packet, provided a broker’s opinion of value, worked with the seller to determine an appropriate asking price, pre-qualified potential buyers, represented the seller in pre-offer discussions, assisted in the negotiation of the terms of the transaction, and worked with buyer’s and seller’s closing documents for client review and execution.  “I tell clients, ‘You’re not paying me just to find a willing buyer; you’re really paying me to get the deal done, this deal is a perfect example of that.’

ENLIGN does not release financial details of transactions.
