Stephen at IBA successfully found a buyer for our business and we closed in early 2021. Selling a business can be an emotional and trying event, and Stephen was there throughout the process acting as our advocate, advisor, and occasionally our therapist. Highly recommended.

Jeffrey Bryan was our IBA agent. We sold our business in the summer of 2019. Selling a business can be a complex and uncertain process. Many parties can be involved including accountants, lawyers, bankers as well as the multiple potential buyer(s), not to mention the desires of the sellers. You will want a representative who is capable of navigating all of the issues that can arise and potentially derail a deal. I found Jeffrey Bryan to be steadfast. He provided me solid advice but never tried to impose his hopes for a close. Jeffrey faithfully represented my interests. The first buyer went through all of the necessary hoops to secure financing. After months of tough negotiating walked out at signing. The second and successful buyer closed in a matter of weeks. Throughout it all Jeffrey was an enthusiastic and dependable partner who was always willing to be at our side at a moments notice.

I recently sold my craft distillery in Southwest Washington. I engaged IBA and specifically Jeff Bryan to handle the process. I was impressed with his knowledge of the industry and his sincere eagerness to help me. He has a very good appreciation of a sellers and buyers way of thinking and he is very easy to talk to. I was surprised with the success of his marketing as we received a very lot of interest rather quickly and through his vetting process we had a half dozen serious buyers and investors who toured the facility within the first few months. We ended up with three solid offers with one eventually culminating in the purchase/sale of my business. The process required coordination not only with the seller and the buyer but with state and federal agencies including the TTB. We also had to deal with the COVID-19 situation. Jeff remained calm and focused. He maintained a mantra: focus on each issue and get it resolved, be creative and always positive yet always move forward. I am quite happy with the representation I received from Jeff. He knows his business and was always polite and professional. He is an easy person to like. I would work with him again with no question.

Clark & Cowlitz County Businesses Sold by IBA
Clark County has consistently been the fastest growing county comprising the Vancouver-Portland-Hillsboro metropolitan area during the last decade with a majority of the population increase coming from people moving to the county rather than organic growth from the resident population. The attraction of the area ranges from the increasing job opportunities to the affordable cost of housing to the difference in tax environment in Washington versus Oregon. Cowlitz County, especially the Kelso-Longview metropolitan area, is considered a hidden gem in the Pacific Northwest waiting to be rediscovered and developed. IBA, as the premier business brokerage firm in the Pacific Northwest since 1975, has locally based professionals on its staff with the knowledge, experience, and professional skill set required to successfully represent business owners in sales of businesses in Castle Rock, Kelso, Longview, Kalama, Ridgefield, Woodland, Battle Ground, Vancouver, Camas, and Washougal.
