Why an agent is important

There is certainly nothing stopping a buyer and seller negotiating directly with each other, but there can be many problems when this is done. Here are some examples of what kinds of problems can be encountered:

  • Difficulty to locate a buyer or seller for the business
  • Buyer must perform all due diligence on their own behalf
  • No third party oversight of the transaction
  • Each party bears full legal liability to the other
  • No assurance of a realistic valuation

Nothing could be worse for a buyer than to find out after the deal is done that they’ve paid much more than the business is really worse. Sellers could find they got nowhere near the best price. To avoid these kinds of errors, it helps to have expert business selling agents such as Trident Business and Corporate Sales working as intermediaries in the deal.

What an agent can do for you

Many people appear to not have a good understanding of exactly what corporate sales agents do. In fact the role of corporate sales brokers involves much more than just setting up and processing deals between buyers and sellers.

As business brokers in Melbourne, Trident Business and Corporate Sales handles all the things necessary to make sure that both parties to the sale get a fair deal, plus all the complex administrative tasks as well. Some of the things we do include:

  • Listing businesses for sale
  • Obtain, research, and collate all the necessary documentation
  • Create marketing campaigns to help buyers find sellers
  • Respond to inquiries from buyers on behalf of the seller
  • Liaison with third party professionals when necessary
  • Perform inspections for (or with) buyers
  • Provision of escrow services to ensure mutual trust is maintained
  • Liaison with landlords, lawyers, accountans or franchisors on behalf of buyers and sellers

The above list is not an exhaustive one. Listing everything we do would take many more pages, but this will give you an idea of how much time and trouble an agent will save you.

Looking for a broker to sell our business we did our research and we have decided to go with Trident Business and Corporate Sales. Brian Budd was prompt in answering any and all queries and questions we had. I contacted Brian in April 2021 and few days later we met to discuss the particulars. Within days, Brian kept us informed about the progress and potential opportunities he had. Through out the journey, Brian's approach was very professional. Brian went above and beyond to sell our business within 2 months in this tough market, especially with lockdowns. We will recommend Brian to anyone that is looking to sell a business. Great work Brian and thank you once again. People, do not hesitate, contact Brian and he will do impossible for you.  Sini from Cut 2 Perfection Berwick

We wish to thank you and Trident corporate brokers for your professional advice and honesty from the outset of our dealing with such an emotional and stressful time when selling a long commitment to one’s life. You advise us of the process, your company transparencies and cost involved clearly displayed in a professional company profile folder, instead of a pie in the sky type quotes.

You are very skilful at what you do, and we wish you and your firm many successes in the future.Mary & Fiona D.

Brian was outstanding in the sale of my business. I previously had it listed for sale with another bigger agency, but they were atrocious. Brian's approach to selling was professional and structured, and the result was very pleasing. He went over and above to get me a great result in a tough market. I cant recommend him and his firm Trident Business highly enough

Why We Are The Best Melbourne Business Agents

Like all companies that sell to survive, at Trident Business and Commercial Sales we have the on-going challenge of being better than our competitors.

How, as corporate sales agents, can we stand out from the rest? How can we achieve repeat orders and referrals? How can we be the very best at what we do?

The answer is to provide a level of service that’s superior to all the rest. That sells businesses faster with minimal stress and problems, and achieves the expected outcome for all concerned.

We do that through absolute honesty with all our clients, transparency in everything we do, great attention to detail, a personal service and total commitment to see a deal all the way through to the end.

We’re not content to simply post an advertisement for a business and then see what happens. Instead, we’re proactive by encouraging interest in suitable businesses, promoting that interest and carrying it through to a successful conclusion.

And that success isn’t just measured in terms of the seller getting a good price quickly because the aim of good business selling agents is to ensure all clients, both buyers and sellers, are happy with the deal.

We want sellers to be properly rewarded for the time and effort they’ve put in to building the business. At the same time, we want buyers to have a business they can grow and that will give them the type of living they want to have.

If all our clients are happy, then were happy because that’s what we aim to achieve as corporate sales brokers.
