Our Expertise

Axis Business Advisors is a Full Service firm with years of banking, lending, and real estate experience. We've closed hundreds of real estate transactions and thousands of loans to go with them. We have creative funding options to give your sale, purchase, or merger the best chance of closing. You'll have fewer, if any, closings fall through and you'll likely get top dollar because we bring our own financing options to the table. Which means we don't depend only on outside funding sources which can be unreliable and difficult to control.

Our Philosophy

Communication and explaining the process is key to successful closings. Getting everyone and their teams on the same page is the most important ingredient in smoothly and successfully closing on time and for a number that makes everyone happy.

Our Commitment to Results

The results are how we are measured so getting the best results, getting them consistently, and in a reasonable timeframe are always what we shoot for. No one wants to spend more time than is necessary to get to the finish line, nor do we expect you would as well.

Our Experience

If you want a team with the experience you feel secure  and confident with, you are in the right place. There's a reason so few people have heard of business brokers and that's because there are so few people who have the qualifications to be in this niche. Another important consideration is "Has your business advisor ever run their OWN business. If they haven't then you might consider that we have owned, founded, and sold many businesses that the C.E.O. himself has owned. That's experience and understanding that you can only get by DOING it!
