Meeting Demand for Business Brokerage in South Carolina

Janice Cook profile pictureMurphy Business has recently announced the opening of a new Columbia office. The business serves Columbia and surrounding communities in central South Carolina from Newberry to Camden, and offers a full range of services and support for local business owners seeking professional brokerage counsel.

Janice Cook launched the new Murphy Business office to provide one of the state’s most comprehensive business brokerage services. The Columbia Murphy Business office will support entrepreneurs with the sale of their businesses, purchases, valuations and mergers and acquisitions.

“There’s a definite need for business brokerage services here in Columbia,” said Cook, who, prior to her work with Murphy Business, owned a retail franchise and a real estate company. “We’re looking forward to filling the void we’ve seen. Murphy’s pace in the industry, growth and development and overall position it currently holds in the brokerage space is impressive, and our team looks forward to being a trusted partner to area business owners and interested buyers with the help of Murphy Business’ support and resources.”

As she looks at today’s marketplace, Cook sees an increase in demand for business brokerage services – a growing pool of qualified buyers is emerging. Plus, Cook has seen an increase nationally, as well as locally, over the last 12 months of businesses being sold and at higher prices – the industry expects the upward trend to continue through 2017.
