I turn business owners into SUCCESSFUL business sellers!


Have you given selling your company any thought?  Do you know how much your company is worth?

I'm looking forward to collaborating with you to organize the sale of your business or growth through acquisition. You will be able to start implementing your exit strategy by using a proprietary valuation process to establish the market value of your company.

I am a business broker with First Choice Business Brokers Las Vegas. I built and successfully sold my own company, giving me a unique perspective on how the process of purchasing and selling a business actually works.

I launched my own company in 2011 by acquiring the franchise of Rapid Refill of Las Vegas, which offered services for printer maintenance and replenishment.  The business was rebranded as Vegas Ink and Toner in 2014 after I left the franchise, selling in 2016. 

I wrote Make Me An Offer: A Guidebook for Small Business Buyers and Sellers, where I share some of the business principles I've learned over the course of my career with the help of my clients. https://www.amazon.com/-/he/Larry-Goldstein/dp/0578668963

I look forward to learning about your business and helping you determine a successful path to selling it.
