Your Relationship with Hallmark – How Does it all Begin?
Our number one goal is to find you the best possible business match for your needs. In order for us to do this, we first meet to discuss exactly what you want, including your future goals and expectations, your skills, desired lifestyle and your budget. We believe it is in the best interests of our clients that they know as much as possible about the business buying process. We will advise you on the total costs of buying a business; taking into account not only the obvious purchase price, but also the costs of stock, any working capital needs and stamp duty requirements. After all – no matter what you are buying there is nothing worse than finding out about more ‘hidden costs’ down the track. Hallmark Business Sales keep all costs upfront, so you know from the outset exactly what to expect every step of the way.
“What Is The Hallmark Advantage?”
Team Work, Experience & Customer Service!
Hallmark Business Sale’s success is attributed to maintaining the highest standards of service; leading in sales innovation; fostering a company culture that is centered on teamwork and a customer care programme.
Hallmark’s professional staff are attracted by a sophisticated working environment, salary-based remuneration and access to internal support staff that include management experts, accountants and marketing professionals. This management approach is unparallel within the business brokerage industry and enables Hallmark Brokers to provide superior service to their clients. As all of our brokers are on a salary and profit share scheme (similar to legal or accounting professions), everyone on the team is committed to sell your business and supply outstanding service. Being structured as a team based model means there is always more than one person to answer enquiries. At the same time there is a specific team of brokers attached to your file to provide a focal point of contact. Most brokerage environments insist only the broker who listed a business for sale can sell it. This is disadvantageous to both buyers and sellers as it limits the sharing of knowledge and available opportunities.
These are just a few of the many reasons it makes sense to deal with Hallmark Business Sales. Contact us today to find out more.
Keeping it Confidential
Sellers like to know that commercially sensitive information about their business is in safe hands, so all of our potential buyers complete a Confidentiality Agreement. This means that you can share information we provide you with your partner and with your professional advisers, but not with anyone else. To keep things simple for you, once you have registered with us, you are able to access information about any business we advertise, without going through the process again. Buyers registered with Let Hallmark Business Sales Negotiate A Successful Outcome For You! Hallmark Business Sales are also sent information on new listings before they are advertised to the general public, ensuring you are the first to know when new businesses are available.
Securing a loan to buy the business of your dreams is one of the biggest challenges most of our buyers face. When most people decide to buy a business they have all the skills required – they just need the funding. Prior to looking for a business we recommend that you speak to your financial institution to get an early indication of your borrowing capacity. As part of our service, Hallmark Business Sales can also introduce you to financial institutions who have strong experience in business lending, which may assist you in increasing your buying capacity and overcome any obstacles you may face.
Staff, Suppliers and Clients
One of the most important factors for any buyer to know is how a change in business ownership will affect staff. What will existing clients think about the change? What do suppliers require of a new owner? Who handles the transfer of motor vehicles, telephones, and equipment leases? These questions, and many more, will be answered by your Hallmark Business Broker who has successfully been through this process many times.
Full due diligence is a process which happens once your offer on a business is accepted, a contract signed and deposit paid, you are entitled to conduct a due diligence, in conjunction with your accountant, solicitor and financier. This will enable you to examine the business in depth to ensure that you are comfortable with your purchase.
Your New Business Our commitment to you doesn’t end when you sign the sales contract. As with the entire sales process, Hallmark Business Sales will make the process easier for you. We will have negotiated a period of training for you with the exiting owner, and will be in contact with you to provide support. We can also provide you with referrals of business consultants, accountants, lawyers and bankers to make sure your new business runs perfectly.
