After more than 20 years of real estate experience within Santa Barbara and Ventura County, Sharon E. Hills chose to focus exclusively on business sales. That has been our specialty for more than 20 years now, and we enjoy the challenge of finding the right business for buyers as well as effectively showcasing the businesses of sellers.
During this time we have developed an intimate knowledge of, and an extensive network within the local business community. We utilize our experience in marketing, finance, lending, leasing, negotiation and escrow procedures, to assist both buyers and sellers to meet their goals.
As restaurant and business specialists, we expedite Alcoholic Beverage Control licensing and health department certification.
For Sellers, our extensive marketing plan will give you the best opportunity to obtain maximum value for your business. We utilize multiple business sales websites, print advertising, online and social media marketing, and custom flyers. We have well over 8000 business contacts in our data base and attract buyers from all over the world, often assisting international buyers with the business investment visa process. We offer an initial consultation at no charge to give you invaluable information on preparing your business for sale. We can help you avoid the costly errors that sellers often make in the sales process.
For Buyers, we utilize personal contacts and we search local listings to find the right business opportunities, and then help you negotiate the best possible purchase. We can offer assistance in obtaining financing, negotiating a favorable lease, forming an LLC or corporation, and locating the right professionals to advise you on other aspects of your business venture.
