ENLIGN business brokers represent profitable privately-held companies for sale with gross annual revenues in excess of $1,000,000.00.

ENLIGN is the only business brokerage firm in North Carolina that collects a listing fee on every engagement.

ENLIGN charges a nominal listing fee upon engagement based upon anticipated transaction size and a success fee or commission upon the completion of the transaction. The transaction fee is calculated on the total transaction value and reduced by the amount of the listing fee.

When we manage the purchase or sale of a business, we collect a listing fee for four reasons:

It ensures that our clients are committed to the process of selling their business and are confident that their business is sellable.
It shows that the business owner appreciates that ENLIGN business brokers are experienced advisors providing professional services to their clients just as their attorneys, accountants, tax preparers and other professional advisors who all charge for their services.
Business sellers that can’t justify the modest fee, likely have significant financial or other issues that will be an impediment to sale.
The total number of engagements per business broker is lower, allowing more time and focus on each client throughout the process.

The listing fee is subtracted from the success fee (commission), so working with ENLIGN business brokers doesn’t cost any more than working with any other firm or individual. This ensures that all parties are focused on the same goal – successfully completing the transaction.

We are different from the majority of our competitors:

Every business broker at ENLIGN has owned and operated their own business – just like you.
Every ENLIGN business broker is a member of the IBBA and has earned or is actively pursuing the Certified Business Intermediary [CBI] designation.
Without licensure requirements in NC for business brokers, it’s important that you know the reputation of your business broker firm and can trust the business broker you retain.

Listings that we don’t accept:

Businesses that can’t substantiate financials, do not have filed tax returns, are not cash flow positive, start-ups, or sellers that are unrealistic about the market value of their business (because these businesses rarely sell and we are business brokers in the business of selling businesses – not listing businesses).
We typically do not represent restaurants, gas stations, convenience stores, coin laundromats, or car washes.
We don’t market new franchise opportunities – ever.

As business brokers, we understand that confidentiality is the number one concern of business sellers:

We have a detailed program by which we ensure confidentiality, while executing a comprehensive marketing plan on behalf of our clients.
Produce a defensible valuation, detailed confidential business review.
Use an industry specific online CRM solution to manage contact with every buyer prospect and seller.
Utilize a distinct secure virtual deal room for each transaction.
List our clients listings on multiple websites.
Extensively invest in search engine optimization as well as pay-per-click campaigns on behalf of our clients.
