If you have a business you want to sell, or you are looking for a business to buy, Acquisition Experts is where you want to be. My husband and I have a long and very positive relationship with this company that goes back more than 2 decades. We were new in Stuart in 1997 and looking for something to anchor us to the area when we met with Business Broker Dale Armor, one of the founding partners of Acquisition Experts. Dale assisted us with the highly successful purchase of the Flagler Grill restaurant in Downtown Stuart. In 2012, Dale successfully assisted us again with the sale of the restaurant to Rick Wilson, which is also highly successful as The Gafford. Dale, along with the entire sales and support staff, are honest hardworking people. Three months after the purchase of the Flagler Grill we had a huge fire in the restaurant and were shut down for 5 weeks. Every day when Dale was finished with his regular job, he would put on his grubby clothes, smoke inhalation mask and come and do clean up work side by side with our employees. There was soot and yuck everywhere. Dale didn’t have to do that but that’s just the kind of person he is. Above and beyond all the time. Yes, 5 stars for Dale and the entire Acquisition Experts team!
Dale is very knowledgeable and helpful. Consulted with him on how to grow our business and the importance of knowing your exit strategy. Overall very professional & informative!
In 2012 I purchased a company in PSL working with Ken Elkin of Aquasition Experts and found him extremely professional, transparent and helpful through every stage of the purchase. Just recently I was please to work with Ken again selling the same business I purchase in 2012. Even in a time of pandemic and challenges with SBA lending I was more than pleased with the outcome of the sale. I highly recommend Ken and acquisition Experts! Thanks Ken!
Kim is amazing. I was looking for a commercial property to lease in downtown Stuart for two years. No one was able to help me, except for Kim. Not only did she find the perfect location for my boutique but, was able to offer me, two different options on a street that is impossible to get in. My business is now open and Im extremely happy and forever thankful to Kim for her due diligence and professionalism in working out my deal, and helping my dream come true. I highly recommend using her for any realtor needs.
Had a very good experience working with Steve and his team at Acquisition Experts. They were responsive and professional. I would highly recommend using them for your next investment.
It was a huge decision when we finally choose to sell our 30 year company... who could we absolutely trust to do this for us, and how long would it take? About 18 months later Dale found us a qualified buyer and my Wife and I couldn't be happier with the work and dedication he put into accomplishing this task. As we were a family run company, Dale was absolutely willing and most gracious working closely with all of us throughout the entire process. I would highly recommend Acquisition Experts to anyone looking to sell their business. Thank you Dale! Ezra, Laura and Rachel Appel
Mr. Leone Was a pleasure to work with during the sale of my business. Bob completely understood at all times my concerns regarding the proper buyer for the business. Bob worked diligently at all times to find to perfect fit for the sale. Great Job!! THANK YOU!
Very knowledgeable broker! Five star review!
Ken Elkin from Acquisition Experts helped me sell my business. Not only was he totally professional, prompt, concise, and diligent, but he carefully walked me through the whole process so i clearly understood every step. He made me feel as he was always looking for my best interest but he also made my buyer comfortable and confident as well. There was no aspect of the sale that Ken did not offer experience insight and counsel on. I would highly recommend Ken and this company.
Great experience! Bob Leone with Acquisition Experts was able to help us close on a wonderful business!
Highly satisfied working Dale Armor, he is very professional and punctual.
I have to say Bob Leone is the man. Or should I say salesman! He helped us execute the sale of our restaurant and throughout the process he was nothing but knowledgeable and supportive. I recommend Bob Leone and Acquisition Experts to anyone wanting or thinking of selling a business!
Excellent group of brokers. They make buying and selling a business as simple as possible.
Dale is absolutely the pro to go to. This was my first acquisition but not my last. Dale did research on over 100 companies I wanted to look at. This process took exactly one year before he found the perfect fit for me. Thank you Dale!!!
Dale Armor and his team were so helpful to us as he guided us through the process of buying our new business! The level of expertise and professionalism is second to none. I highly recommend them.

Acquisitions of existing businesses are at an all-time high due to the immediate excellent returns and established turn-key business operations. Individuals, Corporations and Financial Buyer Groups are all actively scouring South Florida for existing platform and synergistic add-on or strategic businesses as a primary source of income and stability or to diversify their investment portfolios to balance the volatility of the stock market. It is typically much safer and more profitable to buy an existing business than starting a new venture. According to the Small Business Administration, over 50% of startup businesses fail due to unproven concepts, lack of working capital, and poor management.
The link, “Buying a Business – an Overview” will give you a good basic overview of the process. This is a good place to start. It certainly is not intended to be an all inclusive guide and you should seek the services of an Attorney and Accountant before making any substantial investment in an existing business.
