No matter why you want to sell your business, our goal is to help you complete the sale successfully while achieving your goals. Our dedicated HVAC Business Advisor, Jonathan Buehler, has over 15 years experience working with owners like you to maximize the value of their businesses. He knows what it takes to get you the sales price you’re looking for.
At Gateway Business Advisors, we put your wants and needs before everything else. This isn’t just a place to get a quick sale — this is a deliberate process designed to deliver you maximum value for all your hard work.
We are hyper-focused on you, the business owner. Every business owner and every business is unique, which means the things that set you apart need to be evaluated and taken into account before the selling process can even begin.
How Much Is My Business Worth?
Most business owners vastly overestimate how much their business is worth — sellers often do the same. With this quick, 100% confidential assessment, you’ll get a much better approximation of your business’s actual value.
Business Brokers with Industry Expertise
Our business brokers have experience in a wide variety of industries and understand specifically what buyers are looking for when buying the type of business you run.
This means you’re more likely to get the sales price you’re looking for. It also means that, if your business isn’t worth what you need it to be worth to achieve your goals, they can help you understand what steps you need to take to improve your business’s value.

Get a Clear Idea of Your Business’ Value with a Valuation Expert
In our experience, most business owners think their business is worth far more than it actually is. However, business valuation is both an art and a science, and it takes someone with deep experience to be able to give you an accurate picture of your business’s value.
We work closely with business valuation firms that, if you’re interested in purchasing their services, can help you determine much more precisely what your business’s value is.
This helps you understand if now is the time to sell or if you need to spend a few more years building the value of your business. If you decide that you’re ready to sell, this is a great piece of evidence we can present to potential buyers to justify your sales price.
