Playbook Advisory buying or selling a business? Let us do the work

Playbook Advisory was founded in 2016 in order to offer business owners of privately held companies a more affordable & professional option for selling their Companies. Our firm is different in that we are not a franchise Business Broker that only offers clients inside the box solutions with 10% fee structures and we will never charge you upfront fees to sell your Company. As an independently owned Business Broker we promise to give you all of our attention as we manage the sale of your business. Our Brokers have many years of experience and our Team works with you every step of the way. 

I'd like to Sell my Business - How will a Business Broker help me?

Our clients come to us when they are contemplating their exit strategy and have a need for a professionally managed process. Clients who have engaged our firm have ranged in size from $300,000 to $10 million in sales, assets or market value. Choosing a Chicago Business Broker is an important part of the process and one we understand, having served clients since 2011. We will take the time to ask enough questions so we can better understand your needs in selling. While price can be important, it's not the only part of the transaction, we can assist in setting the goals for your sales process. 

I'm an interested Business Buyer - Can you help my search for a business to purchase?

Absolutely, Playbook Advisory has a dedicated retained search, business buyers group managed by a successful, current business owner who will manage your entire search & purchase.

"Jim did a great job selling my business. He has a hands on approach and doesn't push the work off to others like most business brokers. Jim and I had great ongoing communication regarding the process and status of the deal throughout. Within about 30 days I had the first offer and we closed with the first offer buyer rather quickly. I highly recommend Jim to anyone looking to sell their business."

Kim M., Business Owner & Seller
