With Evans’ prior success in selling a limousine company he had a network of interested buyers. Mr. Evans was able to use Chicagoland Sunbelt’s database of over 20,000 buyers to identify those who were interested in the previous sale of a limousine company. The ultimate buyer of the business was contacted within seven days after it had gone on the market. The transaction closed in four months while most business sales take six to nine months.
“Having the database at my fingertips makes marketing the business much easier,” says Evans. “Things move so fast in our business but I know I can rely on the tools our firm has developed that enable me to efficiently target buyers for each of the businesses I represent.”
“Time kills deals and one of my major beliefs about this business is using technology to support the brokers,” states Domenic Rinaldi, Managing Director of Chicagoland Sunbelt “Over the years we have developed a robust infrastructure with proprietary marketing tools to differentiate ourselves in the market. It is not the tools and the infrastructure that differentiates us; it is the success we enjoy because of them.”
