    My experience started 5 years ago when I met Bob Leone at a Business Marketing luncheon. He called and we met that week. I closed this past week. Bobby not only was patient with me he answered the many questions I had, he educated me along the selling a business path. His job is just as he taught me a needle in a haystack. His follow up to calls or questions was done in a timely fashion. I would recommend and have to anyone interested in buying a business or selling. Thank You for a fantastic experience Bobby Leone, selling my Yoga studio would not have been possible without your experience.

    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 was referred to me from a great, dear friend of mine, and I must say, he was willing to go above & beyond what I would have expected! He even came up with ideas I hadn't thought of about my business! He truly helped me to understand the whole process; sometimes the "little things" can mean so much. Dale is outstanding!

    About 3 months ago my wife and I have decided to selling our successful fiber optic business and contacted Dale Armor to assist us in finding a suitable buyer. Dale was extremely professional and it took very little time for him to find the perfect buyer for our business. His expertise through all levels made it a smooth process for us and we couldn't have been more pleased with the work Dale did for us. Thank you very much again for your excellent support, we are super happy how everything went. You are the best!

    We have worked with Acquisitions Experts as both buyers & sellers. Their Team is professional, responsive, and experienced. Consistency in Broker and his industry experience were key to our success. Ask for Bob Leone ... "he gets it done!"

  • 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!

Buy A Florida Business

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.
