Founded in 2004, Crown Atlantic Business Brokers facilitates the sale of companies and businesses in Florida and the Southeast. The founders are seasoned business brokers and commercial real estate brokers with many years of experience before launching the company. Today, our mission remains the same as when we began, match the right sellers with the right buyers and close deals. Crowne Atlantic is a family-owned business that has sold hundreds of companies in almost every primary industry. These include manufacturing, medical, wholesale, distribution, retail, service, restaurants, franchises, chains, and professional businesses. We work with companies that are sold with and without property. The value of these businesses could be as much as $20M or as little as $100,000.
Crowne Atlantic Properties is a Licensed Real Estate Broker. Florida law requires one to practice as a business intermediary and broker. However, unlike most standard real estate brokers in Orlando and Florida, Crowne Atlantic’s sole focus is helping people buy and sell companies. As a company, we wanted to focus on this one process and do it better than anyone else – we never wanted to be a jack-of-all-trades real estate company. We offer a service in our industry that is unmatched by our competitors – knowledge, experience and demonstrated results.
At Crowne Atlantic, our business brokers are also business people. Every broker at our firm has owned and run a business. Each of us understands day-to-day operations and what it takes to run a successful company which is advantageous when helping someone purchase a business. We enjoy being a part of operations and working with entrepreneurs to navigate the most successful path forward. When working with sellers, we efficiently review current and past performance and discuss future potential that the new owner will incur.
We have been in Florida for over 50 years. This brings you:
- Geographical and demographic knowledge
- Best locations for manufacturing, service industries, distribution centers, and roadways
- A diverse and deep network of contacts
- Trend awareness about current and future markets
- An 80% higher rate of success than brokers not experienced in the industry
We have an excellent understanding of current markets – what buyers are seeking and what they will pay. We have vast experience working with sellers to know which hurdles they may encounter while going through a business sale transaction. Understanding the business landscape helps bridge the gaps between parties – this is the difference between “sold” deals and deals that stay on the market.
In the past 20 years, massive changes have occurred in the main street business marketplace. Real estate prices in Florida have fluctuated. Buyer preferences have shifted back and forth between buying larger businesses and smaller businesses. There have been changes in financing affecting a bank’s ability to offer equity and SBA lending to buyers. Many see the advantages of owner financing to help facilitate the sale of their business. At Crowne Atlantic, we are not the type of brokers that are only active when the market is up and then leave the field when the market is poor. We have made our clients successful in both good and bad markets for years, so we are always selling companies, month after month, year after year. We have many clients that have been repeat customers, buying and selling businesses with us over the years.
We take confidentiality very seriously. We require that each buyer sign a confidentiality agreement before we discuss anything about a business. We also establish the buyer’s financial qualifications when looking at a business. During the closing process, we arrange closings only with attorneys whom we have worked with in the past and who have many years of experience handling business closings. The closing process and post-closing business operation is simple when done correctly and very complex when not done correctly. It is crucial to choose the right professionals.
We have a passion for helping people buy and sell businesses in Florida. When you are ready to buy or sell your business, call Crowne Atlantic. We will work hard to make the transaction as easy and successful as possible.
