Reasons to sell a business with Murphy Business of the Pacific Northwest

"When selling my business, I had the privilege of working with Linn Crader & his associates. I found the advice invaluable and the professionalism of the entire staff superb. They advised me to have multiple suitors in order to obtain the most advantageous deal. And they helped me source 3 companies who put firm offers on the table. Finally, they gave me advice on estate planning prior to the sale which had a significant impact on my personal tax situation. I interviewed 5 M&A firms before I selected Linn’s company. I firmly believe I made the best choice."
