Acquiring or Retiring?
Buyers and sellers will often question me when I make this statement. I explain that in my 20 years of selling businesses, I’ve never seen a more perfect time to acquire or retire, depending on your current station in life. Here’s why…



“There is no way I could have navigated this complex transaction without Dan and his Sunbelt Team!” Sunbelt and our broker, Dan Arcand, were excellent to work with. They made what can be a difficult process much easier. I would highly recommend working with them if you are looking to sell your business.” 

Kevin Vnuk – Midwest Consolidators

“Approximately a year ago I listed my retail business with Sunbelt after trying to sell it myself unsuccessfully, to competitors, peers, etc. Within weeks my agent Dan Arcand had set up four separate interviews with individuals and companies searching for an acquisition. Offers were made same day by several, giving me the opportunity to pursue the best offer. Within five months of listing, my business was sold! I might have thrown Dan a monkey wrench in the process, but he maintained his professionalism and got the deal over the finish line. Thank you, Sunbelt, and most importantly, thank you, Dan Arcand!”

“Through it all Dan was there to answer questions and provide positive support. I was getting a bit frustrated and anxious, but Dan stayed steady and helped alleviate my concerns. I would not hesitate to recommend Dan to anyone looking to sell, or buy, a company.”

“We worked as buyers of a company that Dan Arcand was representing as the listing agent. As is typical in these deals, the transaction had some unforeseen hiccups. Dan was great at working with both sides to try to find solutions. He actively listened, was a logical voice, and looked for solutions and compromise from both sides to make sure that we could get past the roadblocks. In the end, the deal was completed, and Dan was an integral part of getting us there.”

“I had both the privilege and pleasure to utilize Dan Arcand and Chris Fort of Sunbelt Business Brokers to sell my business. From our initial meeting to drafting the marketing materials to the sale closing, they had great attention to detail. In addition, they both were always accessible and very prompt returning phone calls and emails. The important part of the equation of supplying qualified buyers and guiding the sales process was awesome, they navigated the sales process and expertly facilitated the seller/buyer issues quickly and professionally. I can highly recommend Dan, Chris, and Sunbelt Business Brokers for selling or buying your business.”
