My recent acquisition of Murphy Business Brokers Orlando represents a new venture for me where I can use all my skills and experience to help you achieve the same level of success and greater. I would appreciate the opportunity to speak with you personally on the essentials of selling or buying a business, valuing a business, and the process itself. You may call me at our offices anytime.”
