Sales Highlights

I recently sold a second generation family-owned residential cleaning company. The parents started it 30 years ago, and built it from the ground up with blood, sweat and tears before passing it down to their son. After a decade of success, the son decided to switch industries. He was initially hesitant to hire a business broker, but relaxed once he began working with the pros! Our analysis uncovered a lot of unexpected value in the business, and we received multiple offers within two weeks and closed escrow for 30% more than the Seller initially thought the business was worth ... all after only sixty days on the market! The customers enjoyed uninterrupted service, the employees (who were treated like family, some since the company's start) continued on with their jobs, and the Seller departed knowing his family business was in capable hands. 


Admittedly, deals rarely all go this smoothly (a seamless transition in record time), but I always feel a deep sense of satisfaction every time I help a family-owned business find its way into the hands a qualified buyer, and seller is properly compensated for their efforts. I live for these deals!

Professional Bio

Born and raised in Romania (Eastern Europe), my family moved to the United States to pursue a better life when I was only 12 years old. After establishing ourselves in Southern California, my mother started a bakery, still going strong well over 20 years later! I followed her entrepreneurial example in my '20s, and started my first business in the food industry. I operated several small businesses for well over a decade before finding a home at BottomLine Business Brokers.


Today, I use my experience, attention to detail, and strong work ethic to help others begin their entrepreneurial adventures of their own. Buying a business can be a complex process, but I use my experience in food and beverage operations, with local health departments, Alcohol Beverage Control permitting, negotiating leases, and just in general having worked on the front line to facilitate the process of buying a process. When I represent you, you leveraging not only my experience, but BottomLine’s entire network and history to sell (or buy) a business.


When I'm not working, I'll either be relaxing on the golf course, sailing (I'm hardcore, no motors for me), or surfing. You can always find me at the beach when the waves are pumping.
