When it comes to selling you treasured business you need to allocate an agent that understands your industry and who knows how to talk the language of your specific business type. In my case, I specialize in home health care and hospices and I think that interviewing your listing agents is crucial. Make sure that you have specific questions to include:

1. How many years of experience do you have in my industry?
2. Can you demonstrate to me your value proposition?
3. What is your plan for selling my business?
4. What will you evaluate my business?
5. What specific training and or education do you have that makes you fluent in my specific industry?
6. What is your pre-during and post-sale strategy?
7. Can you explain how you will protect me and my interests during this transaction?
8. How will you vet any potential buyers?
9. Can you explain to me the reason for using an escrow company?
10. How will you protect my private information such as my tax returns?

This list is not an all-inclusive list but it may provide you some seeds to begin looking at your potential listing agent through a new lens. I do believe highly in Mr. Peter Siegel's BizBen ProSell Program and I think any added knowledge in helping you to make an informed business selling decision is paramount!
