The construction industry is historically a high risk high reward environment for entrepreneurs with boom & bust cycles. IBA professionals who facilitate transactions in this industry sector refer to it as the “Big Leagues” of entrepreneurship due to the need for knowledge, experience, and superior business acumen to be successful long term as a business owner. Significant fortunes have been made providing goods & services for residential, commercial, and public works construction in the Pacific Northwest. IBA, as the premier business brokerage firm serving the construction industry in the region since 1975, has a long history of representing owners of construction industry businesses in the sale of their companies.
This legacy of completed transactions was established by IBA because our professionals have the transactional experience and market knowledge required to properly evaluate, market, and negotiate the sale of construction businesses.

My everlasting thanks to Greg for guiding and helping me navigate the process of and successfully selling my business. Referred to me by a friend-of-a-friend I had no prior experience selling a business when I met Greg. At the outset his disciplined approach to establishing a range of values for my business produced a price higher than what I would’ve thought possible. Then within a matter of a couple of months he brought several interested parties to the table; again, surpassing my expectations. But Greg’s contribution to my eventual and successful sale was far more than simply putting a value on it and lining up prospective buyers. Indeed with hindsight, that was easy part.
Thereafter, acting as intermediary between all the parties involved (buyers, seller, attorneys, CPA’s, brokers, spouses and others) Greg’s patience, excellent listening and communications skills, emphasis on transparency, and commitment to achieving a mutually beneficial sale (for seller and buyer) made the process and the likelihood of a successful sale far superior to what I could’ve achieved on my own. And, throughout, Greg always put my interests ahead of his own to his credit and honor.
I cannot thank Greg enough or recommend him more highly to anyone seeking to sell or buy their business.
