“Mommy when I grow up, I wanna be a business broker!” Never has any child uttered those words as they walked by the local broker’s office, pressed their face up against the window, and dreamed of taking their first listing.
I’ve been an entrepreneur since I was 12: I proudly sold fish to pet stores that I bred in my bedroom. Since then, my entrepreneurial spirit led me to resell 5.25” floppy disks in bulk, sell NASCAR merchandise at a retail popup, and renovate motorhomes (which I expanded to 3 locations before it was acquired).
In 1997, I was on the hunt to buy a business, and was taken aback by the state of the profession. The brokers I met lacked professionalism and transparency, consistently provided inaccurate information and utilized no technology. I walked away from each experience feeling like I had narrowly escaped death-by-sleazy-used-car-salesman. I realized that I was more fascinated with how businesses function and more interested in analyzing financials than actually purchasing a business. I knew I could serve clients better and execute at a higher level. The rest, as they say, is history.
700+ transactions later I can say if it’s out there, I’ve probably sold one; I’ve helped hundreds of people buy and sell businesses. I continue helping clients today. There is no better feeling than when you have the answer that helps your client. It’s why for 27+ years, every time I say, “I’m just going to the office for a few minutes.”, my wife looks me squarely in the face, rolls her eyes, and says “Yes dear”.
When I get a moment in the off hours where I’m not helping my two adult children, wife or the extended family, I like to swim, hike, play pickleball and basketball or simply watch the sunset from my patio. You can also catch me at the local animal shelter, making sure there are enough blankets to keep all those dogs looking for a forever home warm.
If you’re thinking about buying or selling a business, commercial property or you need help planning your future exit of your business, reach out to me before you make your first move. It’s my goal to ensure you’re well informed and have great representation before you start to navigate the process. Email, call, or connect with me on LinkedIn!

I can't believe how much time and effort you put into making the sale of my Sign Manufacturing business a smooth process. I truly thank you!
I wanted to say thanks again for your help in selling Orange County Catering. You are worth your weight in gold. Thanks again for finding the right Buyer.
The words "thank you" do not even do justice to what you did for me. I am SO grateful. You were amazing and I cannot tell you how much I appreciate what you did for me. A million thanks!!!
Thanks again for helping us with organizing our financials and being better prepared for a potential sale in the future. Really learning a few things about how to view these documents now.
You made it such a pleasant and easy sale transaction that we want to buy more from you!
In total, Sean generated 54 total inquiries on the listing. As a result of his efforts, we received eight strong offers, including one at full asking price.
You far exceeded my expectations on the package you prepared for me. I would highly recommend you to other businesses who are in the need for a business broker.
There were many unexpected issues that arose during these transactions and through his e:xperience and diligence we were able to overcome many hurdles and obstacles to complete these transactions.
I have never sold anything of this size before, but I can not imagine any other transaction going as smooth as this did. I can honestly say that we did not have 1 single glitch throughout the transaction.
We were pleasantly surprised when we immediately experienced an unexpected number of potential buyers coming through our doors. You quickly negotiated a sale price and opened escrow sooner than we had anticipated. It was such a relief that you were always just an email or phone call away to answer questions.
We were amazed how many buyers you brought to the table and the intuition used to find "just the right person." Thank you for helping us buy the business in 2007 and thank you for helping us sell the business in 2013. It was a great run and very successful.
I'm pleased to say you exceeded my expectations by finding a great Buyer, helping him get a new lease for the Restaurant, coordinating with escrow to get all the correct documents signed and submitted and assisting with requirements needed by the ABC.
Sean Edelstein handled the sale of one of my stores, he was efficient, professional, thorough and easy to get along with. He sold my store in a very short time for it's asking pnce.
Prior to signing with you, this endeavor was particularly daunting. However, your guidance and expertise in valuing my business as well as your ability to locate many buyers made this process quick and painless.
I would like to thank you for the professional representation you provided to our company during the listing and sale of our business, Aliso Autocare & Tire. Your marketing plan, regular status reports, communication, follow up and attention to detail, provided the basis for a successful sale and close of escrow.
I want to thank you for the great job you did for me in finding this business and with the closing of escrow. You handled everything in such a professional manner and helped make it all go so easy.
Thanks for your excellent service with the recent sale of my business. You found a highly qualified buyer in only two weeks and the sales process was smooth right through the close of escrow.
